Easter Cards

Last night I was on a technique kick with making cards and decided to play around with my SRM Stickers that are Easter themed.  The way their stickers come always makes me think of subway I decided to put them all together and make my own little piece of Subway art for a card.

It took a little bit of configuring but wasn't too bad to put together and was definitely made easier by being able to overlap the clear stickers!

I also wanted to make a shaped card to look like an Easter egg and cover it with washi tape.
This was super quick to put together and way fun!  I added an SRM Sticker for a sentiment as well as some vintage seam binding and pins.  I'm so addicted to washi tape and every time I reach to use some I realize there is another color that I need :).

Supplies Used:
Washi Tape: My Minds Eye, Target, Bella Blvd
Pins: Little Yellow Bicycle & Maya Road
Ribbon: Doodlebug
Stickers: SRM Stickers
Cardstock: Colorbok

April Cards Class: Isabella by BoBunny Quilted Cards

Since my last class of Quilted Cards went so well and there were requests for more, I decided to do another class with a similar theme!  This time I use some similar techniques and add a few more new ones in too!  Here's the cards I will be teaching on Thursday, April 11th at The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington.

I used the Isabella line from BoBunny and just adore the color combination in it!  If you are in the Bloomington area I'd love to have you join me!

February CARDS Magazine Publication

This was my very first project that I made for  The Scrapbooking Studio using the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Line...and before I took it in I submitted it to CARDS Magazine.  Lucky me, it got picked up!  So now, I can finally share it with you here!
I am always on the lookout for how to do something unique with patterned paper.  When I saw this scalloped paper I knew I need to cut into it and give it a ruffle look.  I didn't do it to every scallop, just random ones and then popped those up.  Add to that the pearls and the great on trend details from Echo Park of chevrons, and banners and it just came together nicely.  Hands down one of my faves ever!
Supplies Used:
Sticker & Pattern Paper by Echo Park
Pearls by Queen & Co

Pebbles Family Ties Layout

After three boys, I'm getting the hang of this scrapbooking baby boys thing...thank goodness companies keep putting out fun papers to work with!  I love this picture of Bo and I and thought it deserved to be blown up and have a page of it's own.  This is another layout that I created a store sample for The Scrapbooking Studio.

I have been doing a lot of layouts using multiple pictures so I really had to adjust my mindset on this one!  The negative space trend is such a fun one and definitely one made easier by the Silhouette Cameo!  I created my hearts using that as well as parts of my title.  And of course...there's that fun wood veneer from Studio Calico.  I think I would like to own every pack of that that they make....possibly a couple packs of some :)

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper and stickers by Pebbles
Thickers by American Crafts
Hexagons by Studio Calico

Thrilling news!

Every month GCD Studios puts out a fabulous online magazine full of inspiration and beautiful ideas.  This month I happen to be especially excited about page 4! Click on the picture and it will take you to have a look!

Last week as I was teaching my band class I received a very exciting phone call from Heidi Sonboul herself!  I had forewarned the class there was a teeny tiny chance I might have to take a phone call.  Didn't think it would actually happen!  But, here we are! I have been sitting on this fun news for about a week and am thrilled to finally share it.  I am so excited to be designing for GCD Studios for the next year and can't wait for this adventure to begin!  Thrilled to be joining a few friends and getting to know a whole new group of people!

Pebbles Family Ties Layout: So Cute!

You always can tell when I am working on magazine submissions...there is a total lull on my blog!  The good news (I guess) is that they don't all get picked up so then my blog picks up again!  Today I am going to share another one of my design team projects with you that I created for The Scrapbooking Studio.  I won't gush again about how much I love this line from Pebbles :)

    Maybe I will gush a little about how much I love this little guy :).  My sweet little Bo is probably the most challenging baby I've had but man he is a mama's boy and those adoring eyes make up for the exhaustion :).  I don't work with a lot of 8 X 10 photos...but this one was too good not to blow up.  I continue to be on a bit of a doodling kick and did a lot of it on this one.  The hardest thing for me about doodling is that sometimes you make a little mistake and there's no turning back.  But as my hubby says "that's what makes it crafty!"  

Supplies Used:
All Patterned Paper is from Pebbles
Stickers from Pebbles & SRM Stickers
Wood Hexagons from Studio Calico
Black Pen from American Crafts
Die Cutting from Silhouette Cameo
Twine from The Twinery
