I have a friend recovering from breast cancer.  I recently made a meal for her family and I made this card to go along with everything.  The die is from Paper Smooches.  It coordinates with their "Hope" stamp set that I used as well.  The paper is from a MME 6 x 6 stack and one of DCWV's 6 x 6 glitter stack.

A Quickie Card

I could have sworn I scheduled a few more posts weeks ago.  Alas, I just don't remember things like I used to.  Sorry about that, I do have something to share with you today.  Here is  quick card I made some time ago but just haven't gotten around to posting.  It's another card using shapes I purchased in the Silhouette store.  

I believe this is paper from one of my MME 6 x 6 stacks, and the enamel dots are from MME.  The stamp is from Cas-ual Friday stamps.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

New Zealand

This is another page I made featuring my niece and her trip to New Zealand this past summer.  I just love this picture of her jumping in the air.

The paper is a mixture of Crate Paper's Vellum collection, along with some epherma from Amy Tan.  And of course wood veneers from Freckled Fawn and enamel dots from MME.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Quick card today ~ something I made after perusing my Silhouette store shape library.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye. One of my 6 x 6 stacks.  Those things just multiply don't they?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Summer Vacation

Another summer archive scrapbook page coming out today.  I love these pictures.  When we're on the island on vacation we seem to be on our bikes all day.  And I love this particular street, where the trees appear to have grown across creating this beautiful canopy.  Breathtaking.  

The paper is from DCWV's new stack >>>>>>>>.  There are embellishments from Studio Calico and Amy Tan on the page and my newest love - sequins.  Uh oh, they might become ubiquitious . . .

Thanks for stopping by.

Today is Your Birthday

Going back into the summertime archives for this one.  I think I was in the mood for something quick.  I saw this shape being featured on the Silhouette blog and thought it would be great for a birthday card.  A little less than an hour later I was done. 

The paper from My Mind's Eye's Chalkboard Studio line, embellishments by My Mind's Eye and Freckled Fawn along with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and lastly a stamp from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

XoXo Happy Birthday Card

My sister texts me and says, "Do you have time to make a birthday card tonight?"  I say, "sure."  So she comes over and I immediately send her to my Pinterest card board so she can find something she likes.  Why Pinterest?  It's where I go when I have low mojo, I'm bored, or if my sister calls me two hours before she arrives demanding I ooze creativity. This is what we came up with, or rather, scraplifted from this lovely lady's blog.  As you can see it's pretty much a complete scraplift, but hey, that's what happens when I don't have time to think about a design ahead of time.  It's still cute anyway, I mean there was a reason I pinned it to my Pinterest board.

The paper is basic bazzill cardstock, and the background of the card is from DCWV's Art of Type.  What do those little words say?  Believe it or not it's the Declaration of Independence.  My sister and I have a bet as to whether her boyfriend will notice.  There is a little bit of Echo Park's Here and Now (those gorgeous yellow lips), a Papertrey Ink stamp, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and it's done.  Thank you Pinterest.  Thank you Silhouette!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Flag Football

What is that you say?  I have a kid playing football?  Sort of.  It's Flag football, otherwise known as glorified tag, at least according to my husband.  My son has not been a sports participant for several years now and he's dipping his toes back in.  So far it seems the temperature seems to be okay . . .

The paper is from an older DCWV travel stack.  I liked the bold colors for a sports page.  I also used some of WRMK's new Chalkboard line paper.  The black can't be beat.  I of course used my Silhouette for all of the die cuts and the main title.  A few Studio Calico veneers and some Pebbles alphabet letters completed the layout.  My son actually loves looking at this one.  Who knew?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Let's Have An Adventure

This summer my niece earned the opportunity of a lifetime, to live and work in New Zealand for eight weeks.  I can't tell you how excited I was for her to take this trip - or how badly I wanted to pack myself inside one of her suitcases.  As it turns out, she just celebrated her 21st birthday so our family gift to her was a brand new SLR camera for her to take on her trip.  And boy did that pay off.  She supplied us with a steady stream of some of the most gorgeous photos I think I have ever seen.  Which of course means that at least one or two of them was going to end up on a scrapbook page right?  This first page I created is very simple, very stripped down.  I didn't want to pull much, if any attention away from the gorgeous pictures.

I used DCWV's new Linen stack.  I was a fan of the old one and the new one is equally as beautiful.  There is also a touch of Maggie Holmes' (Crate Paper) Vellum stack on here as well, along with some vellum and basic bazzil cardstock.  A few embellishments from Studio Calico, pearls from my stash, a stamp from Waltzingmouse and this baby is done.  

The journaling is something my niece wrote.  I told her that this was going to be a gift to her parents and she wrote something really touching about her trip and all of the wonderful opportunities her parents have afforded her over her short lifetime.  She's growing up to be an exceptional young woman.  I still wish she would have packed me away in one of her suitcases . . .

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Kenza Is Love

I just can't get enough of scrapbooking these little girls.  Kenza recently took some school pictures and blew all of us away.  Her aunt couldn't wait to show me the pictures and I couldn't wait to scrapbook this one.  I used my Silhouette to cut out large die cuts, added a bit of embossing, misting and inking and then I was pretty much done.  I didn't want to detract too much from this absolutely stunning photo.  Can this little girl be any cuter?

The paper is from Echo Park and Lori Whitlock's Here and Now collection.  The frame is from We Are Memory Keeper's Chalkboard line.  That package of paper is one of the best values of really gorgeous paper that I have upurchased in a really long time.  All shapes are from the Silhouette store and the blinged out flowers are from my stash.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Happy Birthday Polaroid Card

I still love the Polaroid frame trend.  I hopped on this one a little late, but I'm still determined to ride it out for all it's worth.  I've been in a primarily scrapbooking mood lately but I did decide to make a quick card the other day.  I wanted it to be trendy but bright and then of course I had to add some layers.  The frame is one I downloaded from the Silhouette store.  Love the simplicity of it.  I decided to make it a birthday card by adding the text at the bottom and creating some negative space.

The tie-dye paper is from DCWV's new Tie Dye stack available at Michael's.  The rest is just plain cardstock from my stash, along with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and a little heart button.  My sister was over this evening and promptly confiscated this card, along with another one we made for a friend of hers.  So I'm back to being out of Birthday cards.  I guess I'm going to have to fix that real soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
