Moments Layout

This layout was created using several different paper elements layered on top of one another without die cuts.
The title was cut from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge.  I simply added bling stickers to the center of the title.
The EK Success Morocco Lace border punch was used to create a border at the top and bottom of the layout.
A piece of coordinating ribbon was used on the corner of the layout as an embellishment.
The flag was hand cut and accented with In the Navy Trendy Twine and a paper flower with a bling center.
The tag was also hand cut.  The sentiments were cut from coordinating paper and adhered to the tag.
The banner was created using a circle punch and folding the pieces in half over a piece of twine.

Happy Birthday Layout

My layout was inspired by the DCWV March Stackaholic Challenge.  I used the DCWV Celebration stack and also incorporated some patterned paper from the DCWV Dots, Stripes and Plaids stack.
The banner was hand cut and embellished with some Blue Berry Trendy Twine.  A couple of twine bows were also added to my layout.
The Happy Birthday title was cut using the My Craft Spot Big Words Metal Dies.  I love how delicate the title looks.
A bit of Twisted Lime and Blue Berry Trendy Twine was wrapped around each of the bingo cards.
I added a couple of my own embellishments by using different pieces from the same stack of paper.

Craftin Desert Divas "Buttons, Ribbon, Twine or Brads (use 2)" Linky Party

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party.  The theme is buttons, ribbon, twine or brads, use 2.  I used ribbon, a button and some twine on my layout, I used the Mustaches and Glasses cartridge for the mustaches, Lacy Labels for the heart and "Love" and Kate's ABC's for the "I".
I hand cut a small tag and added the "Love" to the tag.  A button was added on top of the "o".  The tag and photo mat were finished off with some fun coordinating mustache ribbon.
The mustaches were added to wooden toothpicks and popped up on foam for added dimension.  A small bow in Cherry Midnight Trendy Twine was the perfect finishing touch.
A couple of hand cut flags were added to my layout using washi tape.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Just Sayin' stamp set was added to one of the hand cut flags.  This fun square tag was created using the die cuts and a small twine bow.
We have some awesome sponsors for this link party: Too Cute By Jessica, Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and Tombow.  Stop by Craftin Desert Divas to check out all of the inspiring projects from the DT and join in the linky party.

Craftin Desert Divas "Teenage Dream Release Day"

It's finally here, welcome to the first ever Craftin Desert Divas Stamp Release Sneak Peek Party.  This is day 2 of the 5 day party celebration.  The first 3 days we are showcasing one stamp set, then on Saturday and Sunday we will have a 2 day hop.  Each day of this release party will have a prize. Today, we are showcasing our projects created with the Teenage Dream stamp set.
For my project, I created this one page 12x12 layout with 8 tags from my stash.  I have several 2x2 pictures I wanted to scrapbook so I thought the tags would be perfect to showcase my pictures.
A hand cut flag was used to add the #cutekid sentiment from the new Teenage Dream stamp set.  I used some dies and a punch for the doilies on my layout.  The Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch was used to create the border on the center of my layout.  The border was accented with some washi tape and layered with ribbon.
For my layout I used the Twinkle Toes cartridge for the ballerina and Create a Critter for the word "cute".  The ballerina was accented with some pearls and a cute little Peachy Keen Face stamp.
Each of the tags were accented with some ribbon from my stash or with Totally White Trendy Twine. My layout was also embellished with some flowers.  Here is a close up of the #cutekid sentiment which is perfect for my layout.

Happy, Happy Birthday Card

Today I have a card to share which I created to give to my daughter for her birthday tomorrow.  I used the "All That Glitters" challenge over at Scrappy Moms as the inspiration for my card and used a Spring floral theme.  The cupcake and frame were both cut from the Stork's Delivery cartridge.  I added some Stickles to my cupcake frosting and to the candle flame for a glittery effect.
A few scattered sequins added a little more sparkle.  I punched some flowers with two different sized Fiskars punches and added some coordinating pearl centers.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Birthday Hugs stamps set was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  My card was finished off with a large satin ribbon bow created with May Arts embroidery satin ribbon from Annie's Paper Boutique.
