For my card today, I used a cute little Monster from Monster Mash and turned him into a little love monster. I colored him with my copic markers and cut out with my Scan N Cut. For the base of my card, I cut out a heart using the Stitched Hearts Die from Pink & Main and attached it to my patterned paper with the edge hanging off. Then I cut a little off the side. I love the partial shape on my card! 

The sentiment is from Social Sally in which I stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The stitched banner die is from C.C. Designs.

My finishing touch is adding this cute little hearts from the new Doodlebug collection.


Hedgehugs Heart Windows

Welcome everyone! I'm sharing a card today I created using supplies from Pink & Main.

I started by stamping a few images from the Hedgehugs set onto Neenah White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then colored with my copics markers and cut out with the coordinating die set. 

Next, I took a piece of patterned paper from the My Heart paper pack and cut it down to 4" x 5 1/4". Then I cut out a few hearts to create windows on my card.

I then attached this to a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock base. I tucked my colored images into the windows. This would also be great to use and create a shaker card with! 

My final touch was adding the sentiment onto the bottom of the card.

I hope you enjoyed today's card. Be sure to head over and pick up these adorable hedgehogs!! Supplies listed below.


Puppy Accessories

Hold on to your hats - I have some super cuteness to share! C.C. Designs had another amazing release this month including some fabulous die sets. My card involves all dies- no coloring! I know - shocking right?! 

I started out by creating my puppy using the Puppy Accessory die. This has a lot of great elements on it that you can mix and match with and the color possibilities are endless!! I added some white dots to the eyes using a White Signo Pen. Next,  I created the dog house. I added a name to the dog house (our dog's name lol) using the Alphabits stamp set.

The sentiment is from the Puppy Power stamp set and that is stamped onto a banner from the Make a Card #17 set. 

For the base, I lightly applied some Broken China Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using a cloud stencil. I cut out a hillside using the Winter Borders Die set and attached that to my cardbase. The rest is just attached the dog house and additional elements I cut. I added the puppy cutout with some foam squares just to give the card dimension.

How adorable is this?!  You MUST head over and check out the C.C. Designs website. Supplies are listed below.

For my challenge project today, I created some inserts for my pocket pages. I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set for this. I cut some white Neenah cardstock down to 3" x 4" and a couple at 4" x 6". Then I randomly stamped the sentiments on each card. I added a little bit of gold striped washi tape to the sides and bottoms.

I love these sentiments on my pages!!! I knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw this stamp set! 


Cupid - Stamp Anniething

Hey all! I colored up this adorable cupid from Stamp Anniething that is available as a digi image right now. I love the thick hair on these images! 

I printed the image onto Neenah white cardstock and colored with my copic markers. Then I cut out with my Scan N Cut machine. The image also comes with a sentiment so I just trimmed that off the cardstock to add to the front of the card later.

For the card I'm using a piece of pattern paper from Pink and Main and trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4" and then will line up a heart die in the middle of this piece. Once I run that through my Big Shot I have this awesome stitched heart outline on my card. I kept the card pretty simple and just attached this to a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock.

Finally, I add my image and sentiment. Clean and simple with a gorgeous image!

Ali Edwards - For the Love Story Kit

Hi Everyone! This post takes on a different project then you are used to seeing from me. I'm slowly getting back into scrapbooking except I'm dabbling with hybrid scrapbooking. As I stated in a post in the beginning of the month, I am WAY behind in my books. I discovered that I haven't done an actual album in 10 years! That is a lot to catch up on and I don't want to be working on baby pictures when my kids are graduating so ..... I'm doing a project life style of album. It has really helped me catch up.

So far, I have all my pictures printed and in photo sleeves in my album for 2017. I got a Selphy printer for Christmas which allows me to pick and choose which pictures I want and print them right then and there from the comfort of home. My problem was I would get pictures printed from an online place but then I'd have to organize them by date and honestly I dreaded it. Printing from home has really helped.

Anywho, I discovered the world of Ali Edwards. I'm addicted. She introduced me to hybrid scrapbooking. You can read about it on her website which I will link HERE. What I worked on today was a layout from 2017 where we took a trip to the new park downtown. I am signed up for her Story Kit subscription and that is what I used for this layout. I love these products! The journal cards are so nice and thick. The embellishments are amazing!

I apologize the pictures are not the best in the world. I'm not used to photographing layouts so it will take me some time to get a good feel for it and adjust my settings.

I hope this has inspired you! I'm really new to this world of pocket scrapbooking but I'm already on a good start of getting things accomplished. 
Thanks ! 

Nicole - Treats for You!

I sat down last night to play around and sometimes a project takes takes control and you don't realize what you created until its done. That is what happened with this card. 

I actually started by creating the background first. I used a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and on one side started in with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. I just went in a small circular motion to create a circle. The middle is darker and I made sure to be light on the edges. Next, I came in with some Broken China Distress Oxide just to put a layer down. I did this all around the moon I just created and blended right up to it but being careful not to mix my colors. Then I went over the top of that with some Faded Denim and Black Soot. I spritzed water and dabbed up with a paper towel. 

For the grass, I ink blended Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint and spritzed water on this as well.  I then die cut this piece using a Grass die from My Favorite Things so I could add this to my background.

My image is from Stamp Anniething Stamps. She is Nicole and is part of their latest release. Yes typically you could color her red but I wanted to get out of the box a little and did purple. I also love coloring purple because I can get some really good depth with the dark colors. She is stamped onto Neenah white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with copic markers. Once colored, I cut her out with my Scan n Cut machine. I added the white to her eyes with a white signo pen.

The sentiment is also from the Nicole stamp set and I just stamped it onto black cardstock with wow embossing ink and heat embossed with Gina K Designs White embossing powder. 

I attached the sentiment to the card and added Nicole on top with some foam squares. This whole piece is added to a white A2 size cardbase.

You can pick up Nicole stamp set HERE.

Spinner Card Puppy Power! C.C. Designs

Who is ready for some super cuteness?! I have a slider card using new dies and stamps from C.C. Designs AND a video to show you how I did it!

I start out with coloring up this cute little puppy from the Puppy Power stamp set. I stamped it onto Neenah white cardstock, colored with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die. This image was pretty quick and easy to color so I did not have it in the video. I really wanted to focus on how to use the spinner die.

I had the idea in my head that I wanted the puppy to be running towards a bone. I start out with a piece of green patterned paper from the Puppy Love Doodlebug collection. I die cut a stitched hillside with the Winter Border Cutters. Next, I lined up my straight spinner die in the middle of the grass patterned paper and held in place with some post it note tape to run through my Big Shot. This creates the slot for our slider.

I trim another piece of the pattern paper to have behind the slider piece so it makes a solid background otherwise the white of the cardstock base would show through. I'm going to take a long strip of foam tape, fold it in half so I already have a double layer of foam tape. This gives the slider a good amount of room to move around. I remove the backing of the adhesive and apply it to the edges of the slider piece. Removing the backing gives me more flexibility to move the foam tape the way I want it. 

Before attaching the slider piece to my card base, I want to add a little strip of foam tape to the middle of the penny, pop that through the backside of the slider slot and attach my image. Then I attach the slider strip to my cardbase which I already prepped with some blue pattern paper. I can then attach my bone to one end and the sentiment piece to the top corner. I also added some clouds to complete my scene. These clouds were from an older C.C. Designs die that is no longer available (sorry!) 

You can view the process video for this card down below or HERE on my youtube channel. 


Buddy Bear - Summer Challenge Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Happy Saturday! We are a new challenge starting up over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! Today is summer themed which I'm totally in love with. We've had horrible temps in my area.... - 20's and that's not even windchill!! Thankfully it has warmed up slightly to the 30's and I will absolutely take it! It's like a heat wave for me right now.

Anywho - onto my card.... I used Buddy Bears for my summer theme. Anything that has to do with a cute little wagon screams summer to me. I stamped the image onto Neenah white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink then colored with my copic markers. Once colored, I cut out with my Scan n Cut machine. 

My background for the card is pretty simple. I cut out the word hello from a die that I think is retired? I haven't been able to find a link to it anymore but it was from Winnie and Walter. I die cut one in gold glitter cardstock and 3 more in white cardstock. Then I layered it all up for dimension.

The bottom is just a strip of patterned paper from the Puppy Love Doodlebug collection with my bear added on top. The sentiment is also from the Buddy Bears stamp set and fit great with the Hello die.

Ya know what's really awesome? This amazing stamp set is on sale this weekend!! Be sure to head over and check out the Frugal Friday Specials and snag up those goodies!

Puppy Accessories Dies! C.C. Designs

Have you had a chance to check out the latest release from C.C. Designs?! If not, you HAVE to head over to the website and see! It is amazing! So many great stamps and dies to create fun scenes on cards or any projects actually.

Today's card is featuring the Puppy Accessories Die (plus a few others!) I started out by creating my puppy and adding a few white dots in the eyes with my white signo pen.

For the background, I used a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and stenciled on some clouds using Broken China distress oxide ink (both of which are sold at C.C. Designs too!). Next, I took a piece of patterned paper from the Knock on Wood paper pack and die cut a diamond shape from the center. While I had my diecutting machine out, I also cut out  the heart banner using red cardstock and glitter paper. Then I also cut out the sentiment banner and red heart.

For the card assembly, I first tucked my puppy into the bottom of the diamond window. Then I attached this piece to the stenciled background. I used a sentiment from the Puppy Power stamp set and stamped that onto my sentiment banner. To complete the card, I adhered the panel down to a white piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 and adding the heart and sentiment banner.

Supplies listed below. Be sure to check back - I have something fun coming up soon!!
