Nothing but Blue Skies

This layout was made using the Mayberry paper pack and the Over The Rainbow stamp set. I love this stamp set because it is so fun and easy to coordinate with so many paper packs. This layout was made during my techniques class in March. Join me for my April class and make either two cards or a two page layout using the Lucky paper pack.

Miracle paper pack

Today I'm featuring the Miracle paper pack. This paper combines blues, greens and browns for a stunning look. I'm featuring a card which uses the colors to showcase a sweet bunny for a cute look. For the layout I've added in a pop of color with Smoothie and Honey. I wanted a fun summer layout so I added embellishments with lots of stamps. I've added in some paper lanters, a paper flower, tree and hamock and pennants for the title. The color will be great to accent some fun summer pictures in the back yard or on the beach!

Today I'm highlighting the Mayberry paper pack. What I love about this paper pack is that it's good for both boy and girl layouts and has some of my favorite CTMH colors combined in a way I wouldn't have thought about. I love honey and olive so I was sold right away.

Here's a card I made with the paper pack and I'm so excited that it won two different art challenges and is now worth $70. Yep I typed that right, $70! I won a contest at my local unit meeting and got $20 in product and then I won a corporate contest and got $50 in product. I'm going to hang it on the wall in my craft room for inspiration!
