Ice Cream Happy Birthday

Today I have a birthday card to share created with the Shoptastic Cuties - Ice Cream Cone from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  This cutie was perfect for a fun birthday card I created for a crafty design team sister.  I totally forgot to share this card on my blog even though I mailed it out quite some time ago.  I went for a pink theme for my card which is pretty much my go to favorite color.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Ice Cream Social (retired) stamp set which was stamped on a hand cut flag.

Ouch Layout

Recently I came across some pictures that I never scrapbooked which inspired me to create this layout. Two years ago, my son broke his arm playing baseball and I have a couple of pictures of him getting his cast.  In all honesty, as I think about it I could probably create an entire scrapbook of all of his injuries over the past several years, yikes!
I started my layout page with the black and white paper from the DCWV Dots, Stripes, Plaids Stack and layered it with the legend paper which I found in my stash.  Most of the die cuts are from the Dr. Checkup cartridge, however, I did use a few other cartridges.
I used some chevron washi tape to accent a few of the die cuts and tags on my layout.  A bit of Cranberry Trendy Twine was used to embellish a few of my die cuts.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Happy Monday!  I have a simple treat box to share over on the Trendy Twine blog today featuring a Small Take Out Box and a bit of Totally White Trendy Twine.  I tucked in a gift card inside of the take out box and filled the box up with some crinkle cut shred.  I used the DCWV Watercolor Stack to create a belly band for the box and tied it with the twine.  The Totally White twine was the perfect contrast.
This gorgeous flower is a Spellbinders die created from the DCWV Jewel Toned Textured Stack.  The different shades of pink on the back and front of the paper and a bit of inking gave the flower some dimension.
Head on over to the store to check out this fun treat packaging and twine.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Father's Day

Today we have a special post over on the Trendy Twine blog to share some Father's Day projects.  I went with a "photo booth props" style card for my project which was created with the Mustaches and Glasses file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The masculine papers came from the DCWV Treasures Stack, they were perfect for my card.  The button was cut from the Stork's Delivery cartridge and embellished with some coordinating Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine. The twine was also wrapped around the base of the card as an accent.
A small hand cut flag from the same paper was layered beneath the twine accent and stamped with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Countless Occasions (retired) stamp set.
Please head over to the Trendy Twine blog to check out all of the amazing projects created by my design team sisters.  Also, remember to check out the gorgeous twine and craft supplies available in the store.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Under the Sea

Today I am hosting a challenge in the KBD Challenges Facebook Group.  The challenge runs from today until June 30th and the theme is "Under the Sea".  In order to participate all you have to do is join the KBD Challenges Facebook Group and submit a project with the "Under the Sea" theme.  The project needs to be posted in the group prior to June 30th for a chance to win a KBD file of your choice.  For my inspiration project, I created a fun and whimsical birthday card with the Sailor Seahorses file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I left off the seahorse's sailor hat.  I did a bit of embossing with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder for a bit of dimension.
The top of the anchor was wrapped with some Twisted Teal Trendy Twine as an accent.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms More Mini Messages (retired) stamp set and was stamped on a hand cut flag.  The finishing touch was some iridescent enamel dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope to see your projects as part of this challenge! Have a great day!

DCWV - Hooray Layout

Hello!  Today I am sharing my first project as a design team member for DCWV!  I am super excited and honored to be part of such a talented DT!  My single page 12x12 layout was created with the Confetti Stack available at Joann Stores.  This stack is a festive assortment of prints and is perfect for celebratory projects.  The solid coordinating papers are from the Jeweled Toned Textured stack available at Michaels.
I did a lot of fussy cutting for my layout page on the cupcake squares and also for the individual cupcakes on the banners.  This stack makes it so easy to cut out the different elements and add them to a project.  A few tiny adhesive dots were used as an accent on the banner.  The "Hooray" title was cut from the tag page and lined up under the rows of cupcakes.  The finishing accent was the small tag in the corner.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Father's Day Card

Hello, today I have more of a CAS style card which I created with the DCWV Treasures Stack.  This stack has some gorgeous vintage papers which are perfect for those masculine projects.
I layered a large hand cut flag on the base of my card and added some script paper on top.  The burlap tag was part of the same stack on a sheet of tags.  I love having those sheets as part of the paper stack, it makes it so easy to put a project together.  The "dad" letters were fussy cut from the large hand cut flag and popped up on foam for added dimension.  The small heart tag was embellished with a couple of copper brads.  A bit of Totally Natural Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Hello Card

Today I have a sweet card to share which I created for a friend.  I used the soon to be retired Paris Girls cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The girls face was stamped with the Peachy Keen Fashionista Face Assortment Stamps.  I added some bling to the girl since my girlfriend is always "decked out" with her make up and jewels.
The papers are from the DCWV Navy and Coral Stack, I fussy cut the frame from the same stack and layered it with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Just Sayin' (retired) stamp set.  I added a couple of small flowers to the frame.  Some Cotton Candy Trendy Twine was the perfect finishing accent on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello!  Today I have a single page 12x12 layout to share over on the Trendy Twine blog today featuring some Totally White Trendy Twine.  My husband and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary a couple of weeks ago so I wanted to create a layout page for a picture of us.  I found these gorgeous papers in the DCWV Everlasting Love Stack.  I stayed with the sparkle and shine theme and added lots of bling and glittery flowers throughout the page.
Some Totally White Trendy Twine was swirled and looped as an accent.  The twine was also added to the tags.  I stamped a heart on the White Metal Rimmed Tag.  A coordinating doily was tucked in behind the papers.
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to check out the twine and metal tag used on my layout along with lots of other crafty goodies!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!

Coffee Time Layout

Today I have a double page layout to share over on the KaDoodle Bug Designs blog.  I am totally loving all of the coffee themed Shoptastic Cuties and thought they would make a fun layout page.  I used the Coffee Pot Cutie, the Togo Coffee Cutie and the Coffee Cup Cutie.  I also used the Coffee Cup Cutie to cut out the smaller togo cups by shrinking them down and adding a heart in the center.
I went to my stash of goodies and found a chipboard clock and some doilies which all coordinated perfectly with my layout.  The title was cut from the Designer's Calendar and Reminisce Accent Cricut cartridges.  Each of the words for the title were on a different cartridge.  I also cut out a coffee themed tag from the Summer Celebrations cartridge.
A bit of Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine was used to accent my layout page.  The finishing touch was a journaling tag and some kraft paper flowers with bling centers.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!
