Scrap A Stack

There is still time to register for the class that we are having next Friday night, Aug. 26th. Let me know if you are interested. Details here...

Village of Cuteness

Finally got my project done from a class I took at convention back in July. Isn't it cute? A little bit of 'scrap' 2x4 and some paper and embellishments. Wouldn't these little houses look cute all decorated up for Halloween, Fall, or Christmas?

Daisies With a Twist

I just love this page. It is so bright and colorful. I created this for one of my swaps for convention. Hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. I started with a Daffodil Delight background. The photo mat is Pear Pizzaz with a punched border of Tempting Turquoise. The Lattice Die makes a great background for my favorite flowers. I made these from the Daisy#2 die. Aren't they cute?! And they are so easy! Just take a skewer or your paper piercer tool (I call it the pokey tool) and place it on the tip of the daisy petal, hold it on there and just give it a twist. Be gentle so you don't tear the paper. I do this to all three layers and then glue it together. On these I used the Boho Blossom punch for the center. Just love em! I'll show you another project later that I did with them. Enjoy!

Supplies: Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz cardstock; Tempting Turquoise ink
Accessories:Basic Pearls, Daisies #2  and Lattice die; Boho Blossom, Decorative Label, and Lace Ribbon Border punches
Stamps: Broadsheet Alphabet

Easy Events Cupcake 8x8 Double Layout

This is an 8x8 double layout that I did for a swap. Aren’t the cupcakes just too cute?! I inked the cupcake stamp from the Easy Events set with a Concord Crush marker and let it dry. Then I colored the bottom with Melon Mambo, the icing with Wisteria Wonder, and water colored underneath with a little of the Wisteria Wonder. After the ink was dry I painted the tops with a little bit of the Shimmer Paint to make it shine. You can’t tell but the lines under the cupcake are to cover up my over-inking the stamp, had to hide the shadow lines somehow and that worked perfectly. Sorry about the wonkiness of the picture. I have to figure out a better way of photographing my layouts!

Supplies: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder cardstock; Melon  Mambo, Wisteria Wonder ink; Concord Crush Marker,Shimmer Paint
Accessories:Concord Crush 1/2” Stitched-Poly Ribbon
Stamps:Easy Events, Bring on the Cake, Raining Flowers, Wonderfully Worn
