Lollipop Girl :)

The cute stamp is by The Paper Nest Dolls. I used Copics and Copic X-Press IT blending card paper. The pp is "Emma's Shoppe" by Crate Paper and the leaf die is by CC Designs. I also added Glossy Accents to the lollipop to make it more...well, "lollipoppy" :) Don't you love her auburn hair? I'll have to use that color combo more often - so pretty!

Sweetest Snowflakes

I created a layout for the Bo Bunny sketch challenge (see info on entering HERE). I used the gorgeous Powder Mountain collection to scrap these pics of DD last year. Her scarf had snowflakes on it and matched the pp perfectly. I love everything about this collection - the woodgrain pp, the aspen trees, the snowflakes, and of course, the colors. For all the crystals and pearl and crystal flourishes, I used products from Flourish With A Bling.

So, here is my take on the sketch (please click on the images for a closer view):

Birthday cupcakes!

Hi guys, I have a ton of cards and a couple gift bags to show you over the next couple of weeks - they are all using The Paper Nest Dolls stamps (SO cute!!). I used Copics and Copic X-Press IT blending card paper. For cute "Cupcakes Anyone?" I used October Afternoon "Cakewalk" collection and Studio Calico wood veneer banner. The metal word charm is an old one from K & Co.

3rd Birthday Mini!

I made this mini about my son's 3rd birthday (last March), which we celebrated at a Great Wolf Lodge resort in the Pocono Mountains, PA. The denim pages in the new Hunk Punky mini by Punky Sprouts were perfect for a boyish feel. I used some October Afternoon "Campfire" paper since it fit the "wolf lodge" feel of the place.... and I just love the paper ;) (Please click on the photos and it will give you much better, larger images!!)

I added stitching to the denim pages, and backed them with some more patterned paper:

Quotes Mini Album!

Do you guys remember this box? It was part of my January kit from Flying Unicorn, and I altered it using the kit:

Well, along with the box, came a 6x6 mini and I FINALLY got around to altering it! Most of the supplies are from the January kit (all the pp, etc.). The pearls and bling and all the flourishes are from Flourish With a Bling, and the stamps are Magnolia stamps colored with Copics....soooooo adorable! I used Prima "Fairy Belle" jounraling cards from my stash - I will be writing my 5 all-time favorite quotes on them. The pretty doilies are from Punky Sprouts (the 2 smaller sizes I used).

Reflecting on the past week, I guess I've been doing a lot of Copic coloring! I think I'm getting better at hair and folds and shadows...what do you guys think?
