Jillibean Soup - note of thanks card

Good morning! Another quick stop by today with a super easy card using some fun Jillibean Soup

I realize as I am posting this, that the Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup is one of my new favorites, as most of my March prokects use that line. oops, but oh well too ;)

Here is a quick card using that collection:




I added some bits of paper behind this pretty Mini Placemat by Jillibean Soup
and then popped it with dimensional adhesive. I added a bit of yellow watercolor to a Notebook card and then stamped the sentiment over top when it was dry.


I tied the whole thing together with a little twine and stitching along the bottom strip on the card.
To see what the other designers are doing with this collection, please stop by the Jillibean Soup blog

March Hip Kits - The Best Day

I am sharing another page using the March Kits from Hip Kit Club - these kits are FULL and seriously my favorite kits that I have used to date from any kit club.



I could not help myself to make a bunch of pie charts using some scraps from the kits. I have so much paper left over though, I really could make at least 5 more layouts... at least. I added some gold stitching around the edges of the pie charts to finish them off, along with lots of heart embellies from in the kits.

That's it for me today!! To check out the March kit - head over to the website HERE and to check out the new April kit, click HERE. The May kit will be revealed on April 15!

Fancy Pants Flutter - Beautiful You

Good morning!! Last week I shared a page with you using the new Fancy Pants Office Suite Colletion and today, I have one with another new collection - Flutter. This collection is girly, with pinks, blush, yellow gold and even teal!

I created this page about my daughter with some punched circles and my watercolors. I am definitely not a watercolor expert, but I am having fun playing around with them :)



You can see that I drew pencial lines for cirlces and then added the watercolors to my white cardstock... once it was dry, I added the circles and machine stitching. Yes, I did a poor job of the pencil lines... so my public service announcement for today is to draw them LIGHTLY!! You can thank me later ;)


I finished off my page with a diecut from the collection pack and a few enamel dots from my stash!

Jillibean - March - Hello note of thanks card

Hello crafty people :) Doing a bit of a drive by post to share this simple and easy card that I made for the Jillibean Soup blog this month.


I love the yellow/orange combination in the Cool as a Cucumber soup collection and wanted to use some of that, mixed with the new cork Mix the Media embellies. I added one here to the bottom of my card:



I really love the Mix the Media Wire Words, they are great on layouts and projects and really add a nice touch as a sentiment to a card front, like on this card here. I stapled mine in place, but you can easily add it with some mini glue dots or even a little hand stitching too!




Thanks for stopping by! Do something creative today :)

SCT birthday celebration + freebie!!

Today is the day we say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine!

I was asked to create a free cut file to giveaway to our readers, and for the design team to create with to celebrate... and here it is:


I made a celebration card for this occasion, using some We R Memory Keepers paper, my Technique Tuesday stamps and some double sided adhesive from Silhouette.


I started with the cake shape and cut it from a few different papers in the cut file and layered it all together, adding some diecut candles and double sided adhesive with glitter for the flames!



I finished off the card with some black hemp twine and some epoxy dots and that was super quick !

Bella Blvd - Sketch!

It's almost the weekend!!! I am up on the Bella Blvd blog today with my last assignment as a DT member, using a fun PageMaps sketch!


I used a decent mix of the new Bella Blvd collections on this page - Campout, Star Student and Color Chaos:



I love a good grid, it really does help organize my creative chaotic way of scrapping. I can still get all the goodies in that I like to use without it feeling a little cluttered.



I added in tons of new and old chipboard on this page, along with some Clear Cuts and Invisibles in replacement of patterned paper. You can't even tell that small cloud piece is a thicker clear sheet, but it is and you can sew through it perfectly ;)



Love the new chipboard alpha style too, mixed with the previous clean version - a good way to mix the two fonts together with some alpha stickers. My Lucas (in the photo) picked the title. I could use a few more # chipboard pieces.


That's it for me today! Please do stop by the Bella Blvd blog and say hi...it's my last project on the blog!

Fancy Pants - Dreamers Gotta Dream

Hello Scrappers :) I have been playing around with the all new Office Suite collection by Fancy Pants Designs this week and here is a page I made with it :



I just love the mix of pink, yellow and mint with a huge pop of black! I love black in patterned papers, and usually you find it in a stripe, but not a lot else. This collection has a chevron and polka dots which I love!
There are some great gold foil diecuts in the collection too - in the Instapack, Diecut Ephemera pack, and I love the fun + and * signs which I used on this page.
