Alrighty Then

My latest page for Ali Edwards's Digital Creative Team uses these fun brush set:


This set is great to document all the not-so-great moments in our lives.
I made an all-digi page, very simple, focusing on photos and the story.


I also used the Story Frame brushes to highlight a couple of details in the photos where the difference was most striking.

I really do love snow and winter. But I am starting to feel a bit trapped by all this snow!

Mad Crush

I am not sure how it happened, but I have not shared yet here one of the latest collections by Digital Design Essentials. It is absolutely gorgeous!


I stuck with a palette of white, yellow and black, and made this page.

I love how versatile this collection is!

Studio Calico Odyssey reveal

I am so thrilled to be contributing to the gallery at Studio Calico with the March card kit - Odyssey!

Unfortunately not all the items in the kit were available when they shipped it to me (... sigh... those gold labels didn't make it to me.. and I didn't receive the MME flair buttons either) so I can't show you everything that's in the kit... but I sure made the most of what I got. :) I also used the washi strips add on (you get 2 sheets with 6 different designs).

I made a *ton* of cards! 15 to be precise, and I am in no way done with this kit. I still have lots of paper left, and a cute wood veneer alligator (I'm hoarding that to be used on a scrapbook page, actually).


Stamps are my favorite thing, and the ones in this card kit were to much fun to use! In fact, only 2 of the 15 cards I made don't have any stamping (shown above). I believe I've used every stamp in the set. :)


I also used a couple of digital items (the Anniversary scrapbook stamp and this awesome ampersand background cut file by Paige Evans - it comes in different sizes so you can use it on scrapbook pages, cards and in Project Life).



The plastic "hey" word that comes in the kit can be used as a stencil (I did that to cut out the blue patterned paper above) or as a mask as I did on these two cards. You could also use the plastic word directly on a card, but I didn't because I know I'll be using this mask over and over.


I used ink pads, watercolors, embossing powders and mists on my cards. These stamps are so versatile!

Spring still feels far away, but I loved playing with these pretty colors!


Hello Friday!

Hello and happy Friday! Today is an awesome day with some great new releases! First off, this gorgeous kit by Valorie Wibbens at The Lilypad.


I was inspired by this pretty background paper for the design of my page.


Next, creashens has a lovely new kit. The colors are so peaceful and serene!

  

Here's what I scrapped with it.


I cannot believe that February is practically over!! It has gone by so fast.. it was a good month.

Happy Wednesday! Wednesday isn't just the middle of the week.. it's also the day of 50% sale on select products at The Lilypad. And this week's products are awesome! I combined a few to make this page.


I love how it turned out!
