Meg's Garden - Mint Card

   Hello, my friends!

Today I have a new project share for Meg's Garden!

I have created another card using the new Lavender with Mint Collection.

As I said last time, one of my favorite colour combinations is purple with green,
and this collection is just that...and more!

Last time I focused on the "Lavender" and this time I'm focusing on the "Mint"!

 Here's my card layed flat:


Here it is standing up:


The elements of this collection are ideal for an easel card.
The base is made from green cardstock,
and the layers were cut from one of the Lavender with Mint Papers.
I used a couple of layers of the Bracket with Oval Frame Card Cut File,
from My Scrap Chick, to create the card base.


I fussy cut the flowers, butterfly, and ticket sentiment,
I inked all the edges before assembling everything.


To finish it all off, I added a pretty double-looped bow and some pearls.
Although it doesn't show in the photos, 
I went over everything with my sparkle marker,
so it has a really lovely sparkle!

Meg's Garden - Lavender Card

  Hello, my friends!

Today I have a new project share for Meg's Garden!

I have created a card using the new Lavender with Mint Collection.

One of my favorite colour combinations is purple with green,
and this collection is just that...and more!

For my first card, I have focused on the purple,
and made a tri-fold card.

Here it is folded flat:


This is what it looks like standing up:


I've shared this file before, and it looks different every single time.
I cut the base from purple cardstock,
then I printed two of the Lavender with Mint Papers, and cut the card panels out.


Each panel is decorated with fussy cut images from the Collection.
The "Les Fleurs" on the front cover is from the Summer Garden Cut and Create.


Although I've made mine as a card,
I think this would make a great journal insert.
With that in mind, I added a belly band to the back panel,
and tucked in the tag from the collection.


The cut file includes an envelope.
I cut it out of purple cardstock, and added this beautiful journal card to the front of it.
I added a fussy cut flower to the back for a flap tuck.


It makes such a pretty set!

Vilda Stamps - What Do You Do...

...When You Live in a Shoe?   

Is that a familiar saying to you?
I've asked a few people and they've never heard of it.
Yet if I ever hear the line "what do you do?"...
in my mind it is immediately followed by "when you live in a shoe?"
I had a little talk about it with my brother recently. 
He's very familiar with it too,
so it's something from our childhood. 

All that being said...

It's time for a new project share for Vilda Stamps,
and I'm thrilled to be sharing this fun Shoe House stamp.

Today I have made a card featuring V219 Stamp Set.
This is an A5 Stamp Set that includes 12 stamps.
I have used two of them on my card.
You'll find the set HERE.
  
Here is my card:


I stamped and coloured two of the images from the stamp set.
I cut a card base from kraft cardstock,
and created a square frame in the front. 
I inserted the image behind it, and did some pen-stitching around it.


I fussy cut the little fellow and added him to the corner of the frame.
Isn't he cute? He obviously lives in the house! ;o)
Here's a closer look:

I've been a big fan of the stamps since I was introduced to them 
while working on a DT in Germany!
The stamps can be purchased from Engstroms Artstudio AB.
They ship all over the world.

Maker's Movement - Happy Harvest

 Hello, my friends!

I'm back today to share a fun project for Maker's Movement

I used my Crossover II Machine for all my die-cutting.
You'll find my review on this machine right HERE.

I've also used:




Here's my card:


This is such a fun stamp set! 
The set includes 13 stamps and covers a variety of seasons/events.
I stamped the truck on teal, kraft, and white cardstock,
and paper pieced it all back together.
I did a little bit of shading with my coloured pencils.


I stamped the "Happy Harvest", cut it out with the die from the set,
and adhered it with foam tape. 
I used a fun Fall foliage stamp from the Hello Fall Stamp Set,
to stamp randomly around the background. 
It's very subtle but adds some nice texture.
You can see it in the photo below.
Finally, I added the truck with foam tape,
and tucked the pumkins in place!

I stamped the image and coloured it with alcohol markers.
Then I fussy cut it out.
I adhered the image to the dark brown cardstock.

Isn't he cute?
He's so much fun to colour!

I added a sheer blue double-looped bow,
which also fits the challenge.

My Scrap Chick - We Shall Eat Cake

 Hello, my friends!


Today I have a fun new project share for My Scrap Chick!

Today I'm featuring the:



I've combined these two files into a Traveler's Notebook spread.
Here it is:


Doesn't that look delicious? :o)
I don't know about you...but I LIKE cake! lol
So when I came across this cut Word Art Cut file,
I just had to use it!
 

I haven't been baking any big fancy cakes lately.
It would be a bad idea, since we're not having any company these days.
So instead of a photo of a cake I baked, I used the fun clip art file to fill my page. 


I used an appropriate paper for the background,
and then used my Cricut to print/cut the yummies!
To finish it all off I added Stickles in a variety of colors.


My Scrap Chick Files Used:

DCWV The Sweet Stack;
Recollections Cardstock;
Various Stickles;
Cricut Explore Air;
My Travelers's Notebook.
