You are Tea-riffic

Hello and welcome to today's post. I made a clean and simple card for a weekend challenge in one of the groups I'm in. The DSP and the die cuts made it easy to put this card together quickly. Take a look at the card below and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, white thread, clear blocks.

1. Start with Mint Macaron card stock cut to 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”.

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 4” x 5 1/4 ” and also a piece of the DSP cut to 2” x3 ¾”. Adhere the DSP to the bottom of the Whisper White panel. Cut a piece of the Mint Macaron card stock about ¾” x 4 and adhere to the top of the DSP to cover up the seam.

3. Die-cut a piece of DSP and Whisper White card stock using the Circles framelits and the Big Shot machine. Adhere the DSP on top of the card stock and then adhere to the Mint Macaron strip on the right side of the card front. Die-cut a cup and stamp and die-cut the tea bag. Punch a tiny hole in the top of the tea bag and run some white thread through the hole. Pop the cup up with dimensional and adhere the tea bag underneath the cup at an angle.

4. Place 3 pearls around the edge of the Whisper White circle. Stamp the sentiment in the top left corner of the card front.

5. The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message.

Botanical Gardens Happy Birthday

Happy Friday to everyone. I thought I'd share the card I made yesterday using the Botanical Gardens DSP and matching framelits. I used a sketch to create this card and it's tall and skinny. The photos don't do the Wink of Stella any justice on the vellum but it's so pretty in person. Have a look below and let me know what you think.

Layout share- Hunt Club Farm 2015

Welcome to today's post which is another layout share. Today I have created a layout using a sketch from Jeanette R. Lynton's Magic book. Since I wanted the focus to be on the photo I chose black and white patterns in the DSP and splashes of red since Michael is wearing a red plaid shirt. I had just what I needed in the way of lettering with the Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Project Life Accessory Pack since I wanted to place the title on black card stock but didn't want to heat emboss. The Chipboard pieces are from 2 different MAMBI Chips packs and they were just what was needed as accents. Take a look at the layout below and let me know what you think.

Here's the sketch I used as my jumping off point.

January snow layout share

Hello and welcome to the post for today featuring the Echo Park Wintertime collection. I loved everything about this collection and it fit so well with the photos of my son playing in the first snow of the season. It wasn't a lot of snow but it was enough for him to enjoy himself.

The Wintertime Collection has such beautiful papers in it and the only embellishments I added from my stash were some Cherry Red and Snowflake Rhinestones by Queen&company, a die cut word (Stampin' Up) (snow) out of fun foam and some foam tape on the photo to the left of the layout to pop it up a little for dimension. I stamped two phrases, in Memento Tuxedo black ink, from a Becky Higgins rotary stamp and I'm just going to write the date on the back of the layout with the journaling.

Take a look below at what I created and let me know what you think.

Scrapbook Layout

Hello and TGIF. I have a simple layout to share with you today using the Yesterday collection by Lori Whitlock/Carta Bella. I also sprinkled the corners with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine (Gold) and used the stars from the Heidi Swapp Project Life Foil Kit. This layout has some shine, beautiful papers that were layered and the photo is of my son with his big Sister at his first birthday party. Michael actually stayed still while being held by someone other than Mommy or Daddy. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
