Splendor Layout

This is the layout my scrapbook groups made for July. It is a level 3 layout, which means all the papers were cut out and pieced together and created with stamps. Paper was Splendor and stamp sets included Grown with Love, Tasty Treats, Wonderful Friend, and Flowerpot. It was a fairly simple layout with the exception of the tree. Each leaf, flower and trunk were all cut out seperately and glued into place. Some of the flowers were added with foam tape to give some dimension. The Flowerpot and Wonderful Friend were Stamp of the Months for April and June and are no longer available unless they decide to put them into upcoming idea books/catalogs.
Supplies used to create this layout are Close to My Heart:
X7124B Splendor paper pack, D1427 Tasty Treats, D1372Grown with Love, Moonstruck ink, Topiary ink, Desert Sand ink, Goldrush ink, CTMH markers in moonstruck, topiary, goldrush, and lilac mist.

Cherry-O Recipe Box

I love the recipe box so much I had to make one for my own. I used the Cherry-O papers and the My Originals Sugar & Spice recipe card kit. This kit contains 32 cute recipe cards, 3 sheets of stickers and 6 recipe inserts that I labeled with "deserts, salads etc." and it is only 12.95! I have tons of stickers left over to make cards or a layout or even another recipe box. The recipe box comes plain white and ready to decorate. The recipe box is only 6.95 and both are available on my website. Just click on the shopping cart to the left.

Supplies used to create the recipe box:

My Creations Recipe/photo box, My Originals Sugar & Spice card kit, Cherry-O paper, tulip cardstock, tulip ink, tulip ribbon

Veranda Card Box

I made this recipe box/card box for the aide I had in my classroom last year. She was absolutely amazing and we became close friends throughout the school year. I took the My Creations Recipe box and covered it with Veranda Creative Basics Paper, sponged ink all the edges, wrapped the box with creme brulee ribbon, stamped a few images, and added the flowers and butterfly. I put in about 18-20 cards that I handmade with some envelopes and gave it to her at the end of the school year.
Materials used to create this card box:
All supplies are Close to My Heart. Veranda Creative Basics Paper, Garden Green cardstock, creme brulee ribbon, Just Blooms spring blossom paper flowers and butterflies, Filigree charms, garden green ink, desert sand ink, True Friends stamp set.

Welcome and a Card

Welcome to my blog! This is my very first post! I'm so excited to start blogging. I have thought about it a lot and finally decided to just do it! I'm hoping to post some new artwork I have created a couple of times a week. I love to scrapbook and create cards, layouts and other papercrafts. I hope you like the creations I will be sharing with you. This is the card I made for a wedding my husband and I attended earlier this summer. It is made with the veranda papers and I love how the flowers dress it up a bit. The rectangle mat the flowers are on is raised up a bit with foam tape to add some interest and dimension.
Supplies used to create this card:
Veranda papers, garden green cardstock, Just Blooms Spring Blossom floweres, chocolate ribbon, Filigree charms, and paper punch.
