I am working with variation of this for the upcoming Kids' Birthday swap! Stay tuned for other ideas with this cute kid.

Have a great weekend!

Blogger's Challenge

This week's bloggers challenge is to copy the layout of the birthday card on page 42 of the catalog.

I used the new set Bloomin' Beautiful from the upcoming Occasions mini catalog. This set will be available on March 1st! I also used Trimtastic to create the trim on the bottom of the pretty in pink I used the so saffron designer paper for the square in the background of the scallop. Sherbert ribbon is used on the side of the decorative square.

I can't wait to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with!!

Have a great weekend!


Spring Fling samples

These are some samples that I made playing with the new Spring Fling designer paper. I love the combination of colors and think this paper will be perfect for spring Easter cards.

The Card on the left is made with the new set Boho Backgrounds. The design is stamped several times in multiple colors and then layered using the circle punches. I used sticky strip on the pink stripes and then adhered beads to the tape. A nice 3D effect for the background of the card.

The card on the back right is made with A Little Birdie Told Me.

The bottom card is a folding card with a belly band. The flower from Time Well Spent is used to embellish the belly band.

Blogger's Challenge

this week I am actually posting on time!! The challenge this week is to use the following colors: old olive, rose red, taken with teal and pumpkin together. I thought what an odd combination but when I pulled the colors out I really like them together. That's what is great about this group. It pushes you out of your box...

I used the new Boho Background set. I love the circle and the way that it fits into the scallop punch. And of course how you can layer the pieces of it with different colors! I can't wait to see what everyone else did too!
I couldn't resist this picture. This is my neice and nephew. It is great being an Aunt. I get to play with them and give them back! Emily took the picture when she was babysitting them this week. Hannah is 4 1/2 and Adam is 20 months.

Have a great weekend!

So Saturday a few of us local demos got together for a fun afternoon of stamping/scrapping. Lynn - my fabulous upline challenged us all to make a 12x12 scrapbook page to swap. So here is everyone's pages! Thanks Lynn for pushing us. It was a great day!

This is Lynn's page. She used the folding technique that Mary Jo Price Williams showed on her blog last week to make the flower in the top left corner. Check out Mary Jo's blog here!

This is Dawn Burke's page. Made with Time Well Spent set - level 3 hostess set from the new catalog.

This page is Deanna's using the Berry Bliss designer paper.

Michele made the school page using the East Coast Prep designer paper.

And last but not least, I used the Priceless stamp set and Bali Breeze Designer paper.

We had quite a fun day!
