"Forever" Kit

Good morning, everyone! Today, I wanted to show you a new kit that I created using the Fab Scraps Collection "Floral Dreams". I loved the vintage look of this paper and wanted to create a kit that could be used to honour your loved ones. I love the look of pale pink and dark grey together so I coloured the chipboard pieces with my Tim Holtz Distress Marker "Hickory Smoke". I included some flowers from our embellishment bar and some Crystals from Prima's "Rossi Belle" Collection.
I used a Bo Bunny Stamp to add some interest to the background.

We still have lots of kits on our kit wall so don't forget to stock up so that you will be already to get some scrapbooking done over the Christmas holidays.

Cup of Cheer

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I am using designer paper from Echo Park called "I Love Winter".  I used the die from My Favourite Things called Striped Sentiment Strip. I love the look of this die and there are so many possibilities. I cut the sentiment with the celebrate die from Penny Black's Celebration collection. I used silver paper from Bazzill for the celebrate and snowflake. Then I added some blng. 

I hope you will join me for this Wonderful Wednesday. 
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Working with Plaid

Good morning, everyone. Today, I wanted to show you a layout that I did for the store using four different Plaids. Photo Play has a collection called "Mad for Plaid" and I had two of these papers with different plaids on the back of each paper. So, I first created a "frame" on the layout by using Plaid 1 and 2 on the far left side of page 1 and Plaid 3 and 4 on the far right side of Page 2.

Next, I cut the remaining papers in to 3 inch squares and included two different coloured Cardstocks which were the predominant colours in three of the plaids. I used the MFT die for Tags and Banners to add some interest and also some of the Carpe Diem "Posh" Bits and Pieces and Stickers. To finish it off, I used the Ranger Enamel Accents called: Electric Lime, Cheese Puff, and Lemon Puff.

Here are the materials that I used:

And here is the layout:

So remember not to be afraid of using different plaids on a layout. Just select a predominant and secondary colour to focus on and your layout will look great.

Snowman Postage

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for this coming Wonderful Wednesday. I have had this die for sometime and I thought  I need to get it out and make something with it. I am using the die from Cottage Cutz called Snowman Postage. The pink card stock is embossed with a embossing folder called Snowfall.  I cut the snowman from craft foam and Bazzill Pearl Foil (just new in store).  Behind the Snowman I used a vellum I got from Crate Paper's Cute Girl line. It gives the look of confetti behind the snowman with out doing a shaker card.

Hope to see you this Wednesday.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
