Cottage Living Thanks

Wow, a layout yesterday and a card today... most I have scrapped in awhile!  I used the Cottage Living Collection by Pebbles along with a LOL stamp by Unity.  I am really loving fussy cutting, it never gets old :)

I am always needing thank you cards for my hostesses so a thank you card it is.

Garden time with Unity and American Crafts

I was on the Unity Blog a couple of weeks ago and never posted my project.  So here it is.  Once again I used the Dear Lizzy collection because it was still spread all over my desk because I love this collection so much!  I created this for the Inspiration Wednesday post.  How was I inspired?  You will have to head on over to the Unity Blog to see.... it is a beautiful inspiration photo so I would encourage you to see it :)

Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny Blog Hop Day 4

I am so happy to be hopping along this week with Bo Bunny and Scrapbook Adhesives!  I was sent the Heritage collection by Bo Bunny to work with and I immediately fell in love with the rose paper.

I used my Cricut (Art Philosophy) to cut out a pillow box and then the E-Z Runner to assemble it.  I tucked in some tea and thought this would make a great Mother's Day, thinking of you, friend... little gift.  

Then, you know me and my fussy cutting... 

So I had to cut out the leaves and make a card for dad.  I used my E-Z Runner along with some of the Adhesive Dodz to assemble my card.

I do hope that you have been checking out the Scrapbook Adhesives and Bo Bunny Blog as there is a prize up for grabs.  Be sure to enter each day!

Unity Blog Hop

Wow, 2 posts in one week, haven't done that in awhile.... and to think I used to post everyday.  I do hope to get back to crafting more...just enjoying my grand daughter as much as I can.

I hope that you have been hopping along with the Unity Hop, there are prizes up for grabs!

I used some American Crafts along with the Too Much of a Good Thing LOL I love the music background in this set and the 2 Tulips set.  

I used the 2 Tulips set to stamp on the inside of my card.

I was inspired by this months color inspiration at the Be Inspired challenge - be sure to check it out, some fun sketches too!

Now be sure to hop along and visit all of the blogs for your chance to win!

Finally can share!

I was very honored when I got an email asking if I would like to be on the Scrapbook Adhesives team!  Today is my first post as a Design Team member.

I created this card for a friend who is going through a difficult time.  I used the Homemade collection by Pebbles along with the 2 Tulips stamp by Unity.  You know me and my foam squares, a definite must have in my craft room - I used them to mount the paper pieced tulips.  As for layering the other pieces, the EZ Runner is what I used.  For more information please hop on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog!

I was inspired by the sketch and photo in the Fusion challenge:

As well the Curtain Call challenge - I love the tulips!

Shabby Cards with Kaisercraft

Isn't this Kaisercraft Paper gorgeous?!  I am going to use it to create some altered art for my bedroom.

For now though I created some cards.

I challenged myself to not use any of the die cuts from the collection, to use the pattern paper to create my own.  I fussy cut the roses and made my own tags.  

I was inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made sketches.

Of course some layering, stitching....

The sketch that inspired the card.

And of course some dies (My Favorite Things, Simon Says, Papertrey Ink) and Silhouette cuts...just love this collection.

Not so CAS but I used this sketch.

The colors in the Serendipity collection by American Crafts are so pretty.  It felt good to play in my craft room.  I really need to get in there more... just not enough time in the day lately.

I used this sketch from Just Add Ink:
