Pink and Green

I love how pink and green look together so the Sophia paper was a sure winner in my book. Here's a super easy card I made with the paper. The stamping is also easy because the stamp set is made for having the inside and outside portions of the flower different colors. These base and shade stamp sets are lots of fun.

Sweetheart Layout

Here's a super girly layout made with Sweetheart paper. I love how easy it is to add pinwheels and how fun they are. The clear and colored sparkles add just the right touch of bling.

Layout Contest

I made this layout to participate in a contest my Close To My Heart team was holding at our unit meeting. Unfortunately mother nature flooded the basement where the meeting was going to be held and it had to be canceled. I am so glad I decided to make the layout though because I love how it turned out. I used a Miracle and Lucky paper packs with a little Barn Red cardstock for some added color.

These pictures were taken at a sand hill in northern Michigan. It is a favorite activity to climb to the top over and over again. Kids never tire of the activity, however adults are good hanging out at the bottom and taking pictures!

Card Magic

I love the Wishes card making How-To book because it has 3 different card workshops. One of the workshop makes 12 6x6 cards, one make 20 standard cards and the third make 16 standard cards. Each of the workshops has cutting diagrams for each of the papers used. I made the 16 card workshop out of the Creative Basics paper that coordinates with the Wings paper. This workshop uses 2 pieces of 12x12 paper, one sheet of neutral 8.5x11 paper and card bases and that's it for paper! My goal was to use 16 different stamp sets and make each card unique. I had so much fun making these.
