Guest DT!

I'm the guest designer for Angie Delarie digi stamps for August! How cool is that :) Her stamps are always cute with a funky twist, and I had a blast working with them. The new release that I got to work with is a Little Red Riding Hood set:

I made a card using Little Red Riding Hood herself - I have her sitting on some grass, next to a tree - the grass and tree both come from Flourish With a Bling.

I also made a LO using the woodsman and the grandmother. I though the grandma was too funny with her glasses and hair bun...reminded me of someone LOL I used Amy Tangerine "Sketchbook" pp and the really cool black flourishes are also from Flourish With A Bling.

A halloween birthday :)

I know this is a bit early, but I made a birthday card for DH - his birthday is October 27th...and I love the Martha Stewart candy embellie - dark side candy, eat if you dare LOL The stamp is from Ktaftin' Kimmi, colored with Copics, the pp is G45, and the flourish is from Flourish With A Bling.

Whee, whee, zip zip zip, from tree to tree...

I've been watching Bakcyardigans too much. If any of you have seen it, then you'll know where I got the title for this post form :)

Today, I'm sharing a LO about our little forest excursion back in April - we found a homemade zip line and got to give it a couple go's. I used Bo Bunny pp and Flourish With a Bling "Adam" vine. The laser-cut chipboard clock and butterflies are from Scrapmatts.

Mini Printer's Tray

My dad will be visiting his long-time friends next month, and he had a photo of all of them together from 10 years ago that he wanted to give them. SO he asked me to make something for him - his only requirement was that it be "not too big" and that I include a quote form a song (which I did, on the back of the tray - see last pic). The tray is small - about 7"x7", which is really cute. I used Prima "Almanac" A4 pp pad and lots of metal Tim Holtz embellies - clock, gears, corners for the tray, pen nib, as well as the bottles, etc. The metal flower and butterfly are actually from Creative Charms. The laser-cut chipboard sign and scroll are from Scrapmatts, and I finished them off with WOW Embossing Powder.

Oh Happy Day

I made a quick card using Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard - I used their kite and flower, and finished both off with WOW Embossing powder. The card base is by Canvas Corp and already came pre-printed with the background.

Christmas in July!

Imaginisce is having a "Christmas in July" week all this week on their BLOG, in honor of the new release of their Christmas line, "Holiday Cheer". I wanted to share one of the layouts I made, "Dec. 25th". I just love this paper - the colors and patterns were really easy to work with. This is DS on Christmas 2011, opening his gifts from Santa :)

Good Times :)

A long post today because I'm sharing a mini album I did for Punky Sprouts - this is the newly released "Punk-a-licious" mini album and it's huge - 6"x12", actually, and a ton of pages. I also added a canvas page from a different Punky mini album. I used the new Bo Bunny pp "Little Miss" and the journaling arrow stamp that I used on many of the pages is from Cocoa Daisy. DH asked me to make him an album to keep at work, and this is the pp he picked out (I cave him lots of choices :) The vines, sun, clouds, tree, mushroom, etc are all from Flourish With A Bling.

Here's a video I made where I go over the mini:

Thanks for taking a look! Make sure to stop by often this coming week, since I will be having daily blog posts :)

Everyday Inspiration!

Imaginice challenged the DT to scrap something inspired by an everyday item. Well, here's my everyday item (and yes, I mean every.single.day) that really inspires me. Every evening when I really want one, I always look forward to the next morning so I can get my hands on it :) Here it is:

Gorgeous, isn't it? (And don't let anyone tell you it's not addictive, either...when I was pregnant with DS and had to stop, every day I looked forward to finally being able to go right back to my habit).

Anyhoo, here's the LO I scrapped with a little can right in front of me. I got the silver, red, and blue, as well as the theme of life sped up (time, flying butterflies, etc.):

What do you guys think, do you see the inspiration? If you want to read more about it, check out the Imaginisce BLOG - it's up today.

I also used the Imaginisce mini iron to iron on a stud flourish - I love how these adhere so permanently, without any glue lines or sticky lines showing:

The gorgeous black and white flowers and butterflies are all from Creative Charms (I still have a little lovely stash left over from back when I was on their DT :)

Mixin' and matchin'

For this week, the Imaginisce DT were challenged to create a project using at least 3 different collections. I always love to mix and match, so this was a fun one. I used "Makin' Waves", "Hello Cupcake" and "Hippity Hop" to create this LO about my daughter.
