Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a quick little project I made using a Brenda Walton die, Faceted Cone and the Mini Paper Rosette die by Tim Holtz.
Love the papers from Webster's pages for this project and the gorgeous trims from Hydrangea Hippo.
Ainsley and I were going to make quite of few of these to share with friends at her birthday party, but in the end we decided to invite a few boys (they grow up too fast) and so we went with simple bags.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a few cards I made using the Live with Prima kit, Lush and Lovely Tags.
I love, love, love the gorgeous tags that Cari Fennell made with this gorgeous kit, but I am not much of a tag person, so I decided to use her tags as inspiration for these cards. Not being much of a card maker, I was very pleased with how these turned out. Be sure and grab one of the last kits featuring the beautiful Rondelle collection and make a fabulous project today.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a project I made using the fabulous Royal Birthday Wishes August kit from the Sampler.
Loving the fun colors and cute stickers in this month's kit.
The bold, graphic designs are so fun.
And went so well with Brighton dancing in his banana costume. For our cabana champs swim meet we always have a spirit relay and this year our graduates had decided to dress as their school mascots to participate. Of course, with Brighton going off to the University of California Santa Cruz, being a banana slug....a banana suit was just perfect. lol
Be sure and grab your kit before they are all gone.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a layout I made featuring Brighton. It is so hard to find papers that suit him, but these gorgeous papers from Webster's Pages were just perfect. Of course, it doesn't hurt that they were photos from the beach.
What a gorgeous day at the beach. I am trying to work through my stash of papers and these were just calling my name
Mixed with fun Prima wood pieces, fun buttons from Hydrangea Hippo and a Pink Paislee wood font, the papers were manned up. lol
And I love, love, love the super fun zipper (also from Prima) and the larger bird from Maya Road.
This fall Brighton will be living just a couple of miles from the beach so I imagine he will be spending quite a bit of time there.
Hi everyone,Today I want to share with you my final color canvas. I have had such fun making these and I hope you will find time to make them to. Don't forget, there is a video tutorial available if you are interested in creating your own canvas.
Love the beautiful blooms available in the Prima Grab Bags....added with a bits of lace, beautiful bling and a resin piece and wood icon, this canvas is ready to hang.
And, although they are not hanging yet, I have found a place in my home where they will be perfect. Thanks for stopping by.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another project I made using the August kit, Royal Birthday Wishes from the Sampler. I took the children and a few of their friends to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk for the day. What a great time. We spent a good part of the day playing on the beach and then hit the rides in the evening. Of course, we had to finish off the day with icecream. hee hee
I added a few items from a previous month's kit that I had lying about and colored my butterflies with some permanent markers to make them match my page.
Don't forget to check out the color challenge here at the sampler. There is still time to play.
Hi everyone, today I want to share with you the inside pages of the mini album I shared a few weeks ago. You can see that posthere where I go step by step through the process of building the album. But, as promised I am back today to share some of the inside pages.
The Vintage Mint Creativity kit, is just full of so many beautiful items. The gorgeous Pink Paislee papers, beautiful flowers, trims, buttons and doo dads….swoon. I reallly do so love this book
I also printed and cut a number of butterflies from the internet.
Super fun vinyl pieces mix beautifully with the gorgeous feathers and buttons….
and of course the kit is full of some of the most gorgeous trims, tags and baubles.
Cupcake wrappers make the perfect backdrop for my rosette flowers, and you know I couldn’t resist adding in a few banners.
I love the little sparklers that Jennifer has added to this kit…they add just a bit of shine and add so much interest in contrast.
Be sure and grab your Vintage Mint kit today. Unfortunately, at this time, Jennifer has decided to close down her design team. I have loved working with Jennifer and look forward to doing so again.
Hi everyone, Today I want to share with you a few cards I made as a gift set for one of our swim coaches. She is getting married at the end of the month and although the team went in on a gift for her, I couldn't resist making a little something special just from our family I love the little 6x6 pads from Glitz Designs and chose a little mix and match with a few Prima Wood Icons and bits of lace to create these quick and simple cards. The tags were made with a stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
She really loved the cards and I know the recipients will as well.

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a layout of the girls playing on the beach. So many times, here in Northern California we are rewarded with cold, foggy beach days. This year however the days we have gone have been incredible, warm and full of sunshine.
It seems lately that most of my time is spent doing DT work, it is kinda nice to make a project just for me. And, it is nice to work through some of my stash. This time some older Echo Park papers and stickers as well as some super cute Studio Calico canvas pieces I bought forever ago.
Of course, I couldn't resist adding in a little flower from Hydrangea Hippo.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a mixed media canvas featuring some of the gorgeous Prima flowers from Your Memories Here, along with bits of Prima Zephyr papers and of course my favorite wood icons. As you know I have been having a blast creating the canvases and I really wanted to share my process.
I made a video detailing the process I went through to put this piece together. I hope you enjoy....
