Paper Lovelies February Kit Creations

I have two layouts to share, using the gorgeous "Sweet Nothings" collection from Kaisercraft. The February Paper Lovelies kit is now available for sale, and it's only $15, and it's full of embellies, an alphabet, a stamp, the die cut sheet from the collection, and two of each of the papers from the collection. Yep...only $15!

I did one LO of my daughter, and one of my son.

And the 2nd LO "Angelic" is about my son as a baby:

And here's a quick video about the LO's:

Imaginisce Sole Sisters

Have you guys seen this collection yet?? It's so adorable, and has such fun bright colors. If you want to take a look, make sure you check out the Imaginisce Blog - the collection is being revealed all this week, and today, my projects are up! But I wanted to share them on my blog too, so here they are. The red paper on the card and layout is actually packaging materiald from the stickers and die cuts - it's got a purse pattern on it and matches the collection perfectly, so I had to use it since I love red :) I also used the I-Rock, and the Roly Poly flowers from Imaginisce basics. If you guys want to see me go over the entire collection "in person", check out my YouTube video.

Even though this cleection is all about shoes and purses, it doesn't have to be just for girls - the colors made it perfect for my DS too:

And here's one of the kids having fun on New Year's eve this year. Disclaimer: That is NOT a real baby in the blanket LOL:

And finally, a quick card - I think the black lace went so well with this collection:

That WOW factor!

Today, I wanted to share a card I made using Harmonie "Shabby Love" paper, and WOW embossing powders (I used the Suzy West Collection Cable Car Red) and WOW "Gratitude" stamp set - I used it to make the embossed hearts background and for the "Thank You" sentiment. It's up on the WOW Blog today, along with some more projects from the DT!

A Copics Tutorial

I made another card using a stamp from Wild Rose Studio (super cute!), Webster's Pages paper (6x6 Country Estate) and a Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard frame that I painted with tattered rose Tim Holtz crackle paint. Hope you guys like it! I used my Copics and I recorded the entire process of making the card, so following pics of the card, I'm adding the 6-part series on the making of this card, including coloring the images and then assembling all the pieces.

And here is the 6-part video tutorial.

A Karate Party

Today I'm sharing a Punky Sprouts mini album - "Sprocket Sprout". We were challenged to use a craft background this month, so I left some of the pages bare, and on some I used the Tim Holtz kraft resist paper stash. I also used different October Afternoon lines. This is my kids at my cousin's son's birthday party!

And a little video if you want to hear more about it:)

Not too big, not too small...just right!!

Carrie (owner of the most awesomest greatest kit club ever, Paper Lovelies) was so sweet and sent me the "Goldilocks" stamp by Kraftin' Kimmie just because she knew how much I wanted and just because...well, as I said, she's awesome. So I had to make a card using the pretty "Shabby Love" line by Harmonie and my new best friends - my Copic markers. Yep, getting totally addicted. They're ah-mazing! The felt flowers I got from Kat Scrappiness - her Etsy store carries the cutest handmade felt embellies around!! The sentiment "You're just right" comes with the stamp set, and it also comes with the sentiment "Sending you bear hugs". How could you NOT love it?! LOL

Harmonie Layouts!

Two layouts to share today, using Harmonie paper, brads, lace and ribbons, and chipboard shapes.

First up is "My Little Cubs" and I used a mixture of "Shabby Love" and "Fable De La Fontaine". Turns out they go together pretty well!

And the second layout uses just the "Shabby Love" line, and I scrapped some pictures of my daughter getting her face painted. I got the title idea from the children's book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", where he eats and eats, and at the end becomes a really beautiful butterfly.
