I am not usually a card maker.  But as I was working with this kit, I was lacking time and inspiration.  It has been a really long, stressful couple weeks for me!  So having completed four layouts and having an idea for this card I went that route!  It incorporates two of my favorite supplies right little flower punch and bakers twine.  I don't think it took much more than five minutes to make helps that I had the idea in my head already...but wow stickers make things sooo fast!
supplies used: crate paper, flower punch, bakers twine, bobunny cardstock

2nd Paper Trail Project

I've been seeing a lot of overlapping banners on layouts and wanted to give that a whirl...kinda fun :)  Love the contrast of the more muted colors with the cobalt blue.

Paper Trail Kit

I worked with the April kit from The Paper Trail for a feature at Practical Scrappers.  This was my favorite of the five projects I I thought I'd start here.  I made the flower looking things in the bottom left corner using my scallop punch, circle punch, and some thread.  I just started messing with them and came up with that...reminds me of the spinmaster toy from when I was a kid.  I'm hoping to soon work on a tutorial for those.  Scallop punch was the best purchase ever....I use that thing on at least 50% of my projects!

Another Eyelet Page

This is my second page that I created for the eyelet challenge at Practical Scrappers.  I used eyelets in the corner of the brown matting to send my white thread through.  I also used them at the top of the tags underneath the title.  The rest of the page is almost all more fabulous Bella Blvd stuff!

Eyelet Challenge & Big News

I am so excited to share that I made the design team for Creative Charms.  They are an embellishment company and I know I'm gonna have blast jazzing my layouts up with their products!

Second up I've got a layout to share today.  The challenge on Practical Scrappers was to use eyelets.  I used them on the corners of my picture framing.  I used a whole bunch of Bella Blvd on this, love that stuff!

Supplies used:  Bella Blvd Mr. Boy, Bella Blvd Family Dynamix, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, pearl

Bella Blvd Feature Day Two

Second day of Bella Blvd features at Practical Scrappers.  Today it focuses on the Family Dynamix line and the Tail Waggers & Cat Naps line.  I really enjoyed working with both lines.  They have cute paper and cute stickers to go along!

This one is soooo sinmple, but I love it!  Probably has something to do with the cute mouse :)

This one took forever, I was tired and probably overthinking everything.  The TLC in the bottom stands for my kiddos names Timmy, Lucy, Cooper.

I'm really enjoying the current layout trend of putting something small off in another edge.  I love this layout and the picture with how it plays on the doggy theme.  I had this picture for two years and could never figure out something to do with it.  I'm glad I saved it and didn't force it.

Bella Blvd Projects & Giveaway

Practical Scrappers is having a fabulous Bella Blvd giveaway over the next two days!  I have been working almost exclusively with their stuff over the past ten days and I love it!  Here's my projects that went up today...stay tuned for more tomorrow!

This is all from the Mr. Boy line, which as a mom of two boys, I adore!  This layout is all about Timmy getting his love for football back...he started loving it at about 18 months and it stuck until he was five.  He took a year off and there has been no turning back since!  I haven't shown him this yet, but I know he'll love it!

This one is totally not my normal approach.  First off the glimmer the look of the stuff but am still trying to figure out how to make it work for me.  We don't have to love every product right???  I got to a point where I was stuck so I just started putting thread on and stickers without thinking too much.  I am happy with the results but am not convinced I created it :).  The title is "Yucy" because that is what my little Lucy calls herself.

Supplies used: Bella Blvd "Mr. Boy" and "Sunny Happy Skies", Cosmo Cricket letter stickers, Glimmer Mist, DMC thread

Hello Card

Loving that EK Success Scallop circle border punch for making cute layered borders!  Filled in all the holes with patterned paper and it makes for an easy cute factor.
