The Lucky Charms crop is going on at Sketch N Scrap for the rest of the month and today's is my turn to host a challenge!  

Today's challenge is to create a card using card sketch #69 from March of 2016! Here is the sketch:

Here is my card created using the sketch:
Supplies Used: Card stock: Stampin' Up- Whisper white & Basic Black; Pattern Paper: Pink Paislee Girl Squad; doily: Recollections; Ephemera: Pink Paislee Girl Squad; Enamel Dots: My Mind's Eye (pink) & CTMH (Gold)
I had so much fun creating this card for a special friend as a pick me up!  It's hard to see in the photo but the words on the ephemera card as in gold foil!  This adds that extra fun sparkle to the card!  I hope you will find time to join us at our Lucky Charms Crop this month! We'd love to have you play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Hello Summer~ March Flavors of the month kit

March is almost half over and Spring is almost here, before we know it Summer will be here and hot humid days where the only way to cool off is a trip to the pool will be the norm!  I will cherish these Spring days as I am not much for hot weather!  Today I am sharing a double page layout I created using the March Flavors of the Month kit!  Here is the kit:

 This is the Bella Blvd Island Escape kit I used from the main kit:

Here is the layout I created using the kit:
Supplies Used: Card stock: Bazzill- from the kit; Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd Island Escape- from the kit; ephemera: Bella Blvd Island Escape- from the kit; stickers- Bella Blvd Island Escape- from the kit; enamel dots: My Mind's Eye- from my stash; ink(to ink edges of papers)- CTMH black- from my stash.

I loved these older pictures of my son and my BFF's son on a long ago trip to the water park!  We always had so much fun when the boys were younger taking them to the water park.  Even though these are boy pictures I think the island feel to the kit is perfect for any type of outdoorsy water/Summer photos of either boys or girls!  Make sure and hop over to the ScrapRoom blog to see the other amazing double page layouts the DT came up with using the fun Flavors of the Month kit!  If you are interested in joining the kit club at The ScrapRoom you can find more information on their website HERE.  Happy creating friends!

Here is my card using the sketch:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin' Up whisper white & basic black; Patterned Paper:Fancy Pants, Stampin' Up & Bella Blvd Gratitude Documented; dies: CTMH- thanks and hearts; ink- CTMH black 

I used ONLY scraps for this card!  I have a scrap basket on my desk and my goal is to not get it so it every now and gain I sit down and create cards with the's funny how I  have thrown all scraps into this not to big basket from ALL my projects since last October and yet I was able to get these papers to coordinate with very little effort!! In fact, the one heart (Khaki colored smaller heart) was so small the heart die barely fit on it, but so glad I saved it as it coordinated great with these papers! This sketch is so versatile and a great one to use up some fact I just might hit my scrap desk this evening and make another card using this sketch...stay tuned!  I hope you will hop over to the Sketch N Scrap blog to see what the other DT members did with this sketch...or better yet, why not give it a whirl, I'd love to see what you create!!!  You have until the end of March to link up your projects using any of our 4 sketches to get a chance to win a fabulous birthday prize package!!
Be creative!

March Flavors of the Month kit- American Crafts Stay Colorful!

Good morning friends!  Today I am excited to share my layout created using the Flavors of the month kit at The ScrapRoom!!!  Here is the kit:

 The layout I am sharing today was created with this part of the kit and features American Crafts' Stay Colorful papers and embellishments!  It is so pretty!

Here is my layout I created using this beautiful kit:
Supplies used: Patterned Paper- American Crafts Stay Colorful- from the kit; ephemera: American Crafts Stay Colorful- from the kit; acrylic butterfly- American Crafts Stay Colorful- from the kit; cardstock- Bazzill- from my stash; enamel dots: Elle's Studio- from my stash; letter stickers: American Crafts Thickers (blue) & Elle's Studio (pink); flag: American Crafts Stay Colorful- from the embellishment kit.
I knew exactly what pictures to use with this kit when I saw these adorable pictures of my friend's daughter and her friend!  Their dresses coordinately beautifully with these papers!  I also tried out something new- American Crafts prints a pattern the entire length of one side of their branding strips, so I used them by adhering them to a piece of cardstock to make a border for below my pictures!  I love it that the entire piece of paper is usable!!  How cool is that?  The fun flag from the embellishment kit is just one of the many amazing embellishments in this kit! This kit is a must have for us embellishment lovers!!!   Here is this fun kit:
