Heads Up!

Mason is now 6 months I thought I'd better get the 4 month old photos in the scrapbook! Time sure flies! I used the circle cutter to embellish this page. All the paper is from JoAnne Fabrics and Crafts at 50% off. The frogs were also a 12 x 12 page and the smaller circles were created with punches. I just love the sparkly letters! Enjoy and feel free to use this layout!

PPA108 - Soften the Edges

PPA108 - Life does get rough and I know all too well. Just recovered from passing a kidney stone last weekend and I'm glad that is over! I couldn't wait to get back in the craft room to make cards and scrapbook!

The edges of this card were softened with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch! I love the butterflies and they, too, have beautiful soft wings. I layered Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz on Melon Mambo after stamping Thank You on the Whisper White. You could use any stamp that you wish. The butterflies have some bling with a rhinestone in each center. It's fun to play at the PPA! Thanks for looking!

PPA 107 - Margaret Moody Sketch

PPA -107, A Christmas in August card. It's never too early to start thinking about making Christmas cards and when I saw the PPA 107 Challenge- I immediately thought of a window pane and knew what I wanted to create!

The Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set is so versatile and can be used for many occasions. I stamped the trees and deer with Soft Suede on Very Vanilla and sponged the winter sun in the corner. There is a small amount of glitter in the grass around the trees and I gave Rudy a red nose rhinestone! The window was then cut and layered on Chocolate Chip and Real Red. I just love using non traditional colors for Christmas cards. For the valance I used a craft scissors and a the corner rounder punch. The sentiment was stamped and then punched and embellished with a Christmas Tree Brad.

It's always fun to play at the PPA! Thanks for looking.

Engagement Celebration!

My cousin's daughter was recently engaged and I wanted to congratulate her with a cute card. The Lace Border Punch is so easy to use and I wanted it to look like a "garter" ....not sure if that worked but I still love the punch! It's so versatile! I used Whisper White and Basic Black Paper and the Bright Yellow is no longer available but you could use any yellow or even a gold glittery paper would work. The rings from Jolee's Boutique were on clearance and I bought plenty to use for scrapbooking too! Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
