Birthday Wishes - AHSC 213

I made this card after being inspired by a fellow CTMH consultant Andrea Sherman and a layout she did featuring the Little Dreamer papers. When I saw this sketch I knew her design would be awesome modified into this card.


I used the idea of the rainbow from Andrea's layout, which you can see here and put it to work on this birthday card. This card will be a perfect card for my oldest whose favourite colour when asked is, "rainbow."


Products Used:

Paper:
- Little Dreamer
- Blossom, Lemon, Tangerine, Thistle, Glacier, and White Daisy card stock

Stamp:
- Z3335 Little Dreamer card making and thin cuts

Cricut:
- Artiste (rainbow)

Sihouette Cameo
- Clouds

Thanks for stopping by and visiting, I really appreciate any and all feedback. We would love to see your take on the sketch above, please join us here!

Until next time....happy crafting!

Life is Sweet - BTF CHallenge

One of our family traditions that we all enjoy is making a trip to a relatively local ice cream shop in near by St. Thomas called Shaw's we typically go every year on Victoria Day weekend to kick off the summer season and we make several trips out there to enjoy their delicious ice cream. My girls love it there and we all love the ice cream. Spending time with our girls over something as simple as ice cream is one of the best memories we have each summer so of course I have to document our trip and that life truly is sweet as we were blessed to have our 3 muchkins with us...life truly is sweet!

Unicorn Love - H2H Ribbon

Hello....Happy Monday once again! Here in Canada we are celebrating Victoria Day today, the official kick off to summer holiday. Our kick off to summer weekend usually resembles a winter or late spring weekend, cold, wet, and gloomy and this year is no different! But while the kidlets and those out camping may not like it...it does make for good paper crafting weather.

I had a workshop last night so I was playing around in my basement scrapbooking today while the kids played and I was actually quite productive. I got 2 layouts done and several cards....I was quite happy with that, I am not typically that productive when the munchkins are around.

Here is one of those cards....

OMG it is Unicorn....I am shocked I got as much done today...as you can see rainbow paper and unicorns....my girls (ages 7, 8, and 9) were drooling over the paper and thin cuts on this one...."its so pretty mommy....can we have some?" Why yes you can, here are a few each from the extras of my workshop so go create something awesome while mommy works (they LOVE my extra bits and pieces!)

So about this card, it is a note card and can be left blank. I did stamp the inside with the sentiment "always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn then always be a unicorn."

Products used:

Paper:
- Little Dreamer
- Lemon and White Daisy card stock

Embellishments:
- White and Gold ribbon
- Gold Glitter Gems.

Ink:
- Glacier, Lagoon, and Black

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work, I welcome feedback of any kind. If you want to play along with the challenge this week at H2H join us here!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Little Dreamer - BTF challenge

Hello!

Today I am happy to show off one of your new paper packs...Little Dreamer. I love this fun, cute and sweet paper pack, it is magical! My munchkins LOVED it...they were dying to get their hands on my stamp and thin cuts for this one....oh the ideas they were throwing around for cards for their friends.

Any hoots, this is all my design, though my seven year old wanted to do the stamping for me but her sisters were hovering and it would be come pandemonium if I handed it over so I did it all. It is a bit challenging to see in the picture, there is some white shimmer trim which garnered a ton of oohs and ahhhs from the peanut gallery!

Teeny Tiny - H2h Challenges

Hello! Guess what, I am LATE, LATE, LATE! Those who know me would not be surprised by that as I tend to always seem to be running late with the munchkins in my life! So this post was supposed to be up yesterday but life as it often does got away from me but my theory is better late than never!

Here is a card I made for the Heart 2 Heart Challenges design team. The challenge this week is teeny tiny. You can interpret that however you want. I chose to go with what I consider to be a small stamp. I often buy stamp sets that have smaller stamps and never get around to using them though I see others use them on cards and layouts and they look great, so I decided to break one out. Now, how is this for hoarding...this is the Stamp of the Month from December 2012 and I am using it for the first time.



Paper:
- Little Dreamer
- Glacier, Lemon, and White Daisy card stock

Stamp:
- S1212 Year Round Cheer (retired)

Ink:
- Black and Lemon

Embellishments:
- Little Dreamer Glitter Gems Z3321


We would love to see you play along with us at H2H challenges. I would love to see your take on the Teeny Tiny theme!

Thanks for stopping by!
