Blog Hop!



Hi everyone, welcome to my stop on the Imaginisce and My Little Bit of Whimsy (MLBOW) blog hop! As part of the Imaginisce DT< I was lucky enough to get a package of really adorable hand-sculpted buttons and stick pins from MLBOW. I created two layouts to show off some of my cute new embellies. First up, I have a layout using the Hippity Hop and Makin' Waves collections from Imaginisce. I kept it on the clean and simple side (or as clean and simple as it possibly ever gets for me :) I really wanted to keep all embellies to a minimum to show off the super cute MLBOW goodies - I used a polka-dot button, cute mushroom and ladybug, and the flower-shaped yellow button. I also used lots of die-cuts from the Hippity Hop collection - I so love that line!






For my second layout, I just had to use the "Sole Sisters" collection from Imaginisce to scrap this picture I got of meeting Sofie. Sofie is the owner of Scrapmatts (and she lives in Australia), but she was vising USA, and I finally got to meet her (after a year and a half of being on her DT!). I used lots of various buttons from MBOW, as well as a purse stick pin. It went perfectly with this collection. I also used some Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard high heels and a purse. One of the high heels I heat embossed with Cotton Candy WOW Embossing powder from the Suzy West collection, and the other one I inked, and then hear embossed with clear glitter embossing powder, also from WOW. The purse, I heat embossed with Honey Earthtone Suzy West Collection powder.
