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!

Easters coming!

And time for some new cards!! Here are some Easter cards I worked on for my family, my mother in law loves Easter, its her favorite holiday so I had to make sure I made her a card. Then my niece, needs one too!! I am also including in this post some pictures of the kids, so Lisa can see!! 🙂 They are my world, and Lisa loves to see how they are growing, so here ya are girl, some new piccies of the beautiful children I love more than anything!

http://365cards.blogspot.com/ has a song inspired challenge..wow..Ive never done one based on a song..
since I had never done a challenge based on a song, I figured it was embracing the true word of CHALLENGE. I took inspiration from the “red roses” and the “colors of the rainbow so pretty”

I hope you enjoy! I had fun with this card! Took forever for the stickles to dry tho! LOL

ANd I realize that today is Thursday, but I did get Mojo Monday f rom the blog http://mojomonday.blogspot.com done today… Thursday! Better late than never right???

 

So I started with DCWV Christmas Cardstock as the base, and then layered it up.. I found this holly like paper in a stack of sizzix paper I have, called little sizzles, that I have not used since banishing my sizzix to the garage sale.. then layered that with some fun christmas coloured patterned paper, then MORE layering with the happy holidays stamp on whisper white, and matted on the DCWV cardstock in the same green, and then I used my water colour pen to colour in the happy, and added some stickles to the star and the ornaments on the stamp *Big on Christmas* stampin up set, and then a poinsetta from *Season of Joy* stampin up on red bazzil, cut out, and stickled the center…2 silver branches cut from the martha stewart branch punch, and some silver ribbon. PHEW I think thats everything!

Ok so every year I do the Christmas fair here in Leduc.. I am HOPING 😉 to not be too pregnant to do it this year… so I have started on my batch of Christmas cards! Here are a few I did today…way more to come..but hey its just the start! Enjoy!!

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!!

I made a Canada Day card using the SCS233 sketch, followed by http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com challenging us to make a celebratory card.. so I figure this fits perfectly!!

http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/  challenge was hard for me…I had a difficult time figuring how I would do the “Bookplate” look..then it dawned on me…DUH FAB FINDS with my cricut expression…so away I went and the rest came together nicely. I used my cuttlebug flower dots folder, american crafts paper, a cute angel stamp, and stickles!
