New Release With Little Blue Button Stamps!

Hello, my friends!

I'm excited to share a New Release image from Little Blue Buttons Stamp.
This one is called "Some Coffee" and you'll find it HERE.
These girls have been very busy shopping, and have stopped for a coffee break

I opted to use this image to decorate a plain kraft gift bag.
Wouldn't it be lovely filled with some flavoured coffee and mugs?

I coloured the image, and matted it on yellow cardstock.
Some red rhinestones were added to the corners.
I placed a red doily behind it and adhered it to the bag.
The bag was stuffed with red tissue paper, 
and I added a yellow and red ribbon bow.



Here's a closer look at the fun image:


Here's the sentiment I've added to the back of the bag:

Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Little Blue Button Stamps - Some Coffee,
Spectrum Noir Markers;

ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hello, my friends!

It's Friday, which means it's Sketch-y Friday at ScrapMuch?
and I have another layout to share with you! :o)

This is my last post as part of the ScrapMuch? DT.
My term is up and I have given notice.

Laura created another wonderful sketch.
Here it is:

I decided to try something a little bit different with my layout.
I've used only black and white, along with black and white photos.
It was fun to do!
The photos of my layout actually look like they're black and white photos, don't they? 
They're not...they're full color!

For the treatment on the base page, I opted to use Frantage.
I think it looks really great!
Then the trick was to choose papers that would offer the right contrast and add texture.



I made the flowers using a combination of paper and cheese cloth.
The white of the cheese cloth was just right, and adds a lovely texture.
This photo also displays the Frantage very nicely.


Here's the other flower and the title:


Materials Used:
Papers: Momenta Cardstock;
Slice Design Card: Basics 3;
Die: Tim Holtz Alterations - Styled Labels,
Dear Lizzy - Flowers;
Frantage: Stampendous - Shabby White;
Brads: Recollections;
Cheese Cloth.

and link it up in the sidebar at ScrapMuch? before April 29th.

For my card I used this sweet image called "Peaches"! 
Again, the image comes with a couple of variations.

I cut the scalloped oval to make it look like a rug,
then added a teddy bear and ball die-cut.
I wanted it to look like she was playing on the floor.
Finally, I added the "welcome, baby" sentiment.
The inside of the card says..."so glad you're here".

Life is Sweet - Cards and More Shop DT Project

Hello, my friends! 

I'm back with a new project made with products from the Cards and More Shop .
I have a "sweet" card to share with you today! ;o)

Yes, I used another fun template from Dutch Doobadoo.
This one is for a cupcake card, with the fold on the bottom.
Since I wanted to make a circle card, I cut off the card backing,
and adhered the cupcake base to my circle card base.
Have I mentioned how versatile these templates are? 

Using the template, I traced and cut the base, and all the pieces.
I distressed all the edges with the distressing tool, as well as ink.
I stamped a sentiment on a banner, and positioned it above a ribbon bow.
Finally, I added a little Glossy Accents to the red cherry.



Here's a closer look at the shiny cherry on top!


These were the products used from the Cards and More Shop :

Dutch Doobadoo Card Art - Cupcake



Maja Design 6 X 6 Paper Pad - Life in the Country

Scrap N' Dipity Spotlight

Hello, my friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I have a card to share for Scrap N' Dipity.

I've created my April calendar page using this image called "Feelin Duckie" which you can find right HERE.

Isn't she FUN?
I made her a girl by putting a bow on her head. 

I love her big rubber boots, and opted to colour them bright red.
Red boots make me happy!
Originally I was going to make a scene, with a puddle and all.
Instead, I opted to just make a pretty page!
I layered some punched borders, added some die-cuts, and some shiny yellow sequins.


Materials Used:
Papers: Crate Paper - Emma's Shoppe, Recollections - Cardstock;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: WRMK - Nesting Circles, 
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Gold Facets, Floral Doily Accents;

ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hello, my friends!

It's Friday, which means it's Sketch-y Friday at ScrapMuch?
and I have another layout to share with you! :o)

Here's the great sketch that Laura created:


I tried something a little different with these photos.
I had a series of three photos taken at the same time and place.
Two were landscape, and one was a zoomed in portrait.
I laid the one portrait photo over the two landscapes. 
Of course they don't match perfectly but I like it! 

This is my husband and my FIL at my FIL's farm.
My FIL has been gone for a number of years now, so it was nice to scrap these.




Lots of great country elements; wheat stalks, denim paper, barn board, etc.


Materials Used:
Papers: Crate paper - Farmous, Random,
American Crafts - Cardstock, MME - Best Of Paperpad;
Slice: Farm Life Cartridge;
Border Punch: Fiskars - On the Farm;
Punch: WRMK - 
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain.
