Tag Archive: martha stewart edge punch


http://www.diecutsrusdesignteam.blogspot.com had an awesome challenge to combine a colour from my minds eye new line, and white.. I chose pink and white.. what better colour to choose to do a layout of my new angel and I. I used so many different fun things on this layout. First I cut my bazzill bling into 6×6 squares, both of them 2 shades of pink(sorry I dont remember the name of the colours), then I did the same with my gorgeous patterned paper that was dying to get used for months. I made a patchwork with the squares for my base, and used my martha stewart scalloped edge punch on the patterned paper.! Then I used 2 pictures of Abigail and I. I accented with gems, to add a bit of bling. In the center I placed 2 of my thrift store find silk flowers, with an accenting brad, and hand drew some stickle flourishes. Then I had to figure out what to do for a title. I was inspired by what my mother says to me all the time “Before I was your mom…” and then she finishes the sentence. So, I cut my title with Sure Cuts A Lot out of white.. for the journalling I took 3 paint chips in various shades of pink, edged them with the same martha stewart edge punch, and layered them. My journalling says ” I slept 8 hours a night, I got to shower every morning, I wasn’t complete”… all things applicable to life before I was Abby’s mom! Ithen tied some polkadot pretty in pink ribbon around the bottom.  I hope you like my layout as much as I do! I had a blast making it. Please feel free to comment!

Clean and simple!

http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com had a fun simple sketch, so I went with blues and pinks.. I left room for my sentiment to be whatever I need..hence why it is blank! Enjoy! And please leave a comment, I love hearing feedback, as I am just getting back to being creative after a lonnnnnnng absence from my scraproom!

my craft room! Its so hot..and I DONT need to overheat like I did yesterday! Anyway, on with the details of the card!!

http://inthecottagestudio.blogspot.com/  with the CHRISTMAS in JULY theme mixed with the sketch from http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com as well as http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com..living on the edge..using edged things. So this card totally fits all of those categories!! I used the wintery image of this sweet Tilda bundled in her winter coat.. coloured her the colours of my designer paper (by DCWV 2008 Christmas stack), stickled the fur of her coat and hat…added some fun edges to the 2 solid panels, from a Martha Stewart punch…added some matching buttons, and a sentiment from Studio G Christmas Acrylic stamps 2007. PHEW! I think thats all the deets..it was such a fun card to make! I hope you love it as much as I do!!
