Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT Day!!

Hello everyone!! I have a super fun and cheery card using some Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon files to share with you all today!!! 

Isn't her enthusiasm contagious?! I love her!! 

I used some digital paper from the Spring Fling Collection as inspiration for my card. 

My little girl came from the Fourth of July kids set...

I changed the colors of my little girl by picking up colors from the digital paper using my dropper tool. Then I printed her and used my cameo to cut her out. Then I added a cute little Peachy Keen Face and some other details. 

Here is a list of everything I used for my card...
- Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Spring Fling Chevron digital paper (printed on white AC Cardstock)
- Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Fourth of July Kids Cutting Files
- Peachy Keen In The Garden Face stamp assortment
- My Creative Time Tiny Tag Greetings Stamp Set, Heart Dies & Doily Die
- Twine from The Twinery
- sequins

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Back to School Blog Hop!!

It's another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog Hop!! Our theme this month is 'Back To School'! My oldest daughter starts Kindergarten this year so 'Back To School' has a whole new meaning to me! I'd better not get talking about it or the tears will start flowing again... ;) 

My middle daughter is starting Preschool this year, too!! Crazy changes going on around here! I had to use Lisa's files to make her a layout for pics on her very first day...  

I printed/cut my crayon box in two layers and popped the second layer up using foam stickers. Of course I had to add a Peachy Keen ace too!! 

I had the greatest idea - or I think so, anyway... - to use my baby hand prints from the Jaded Blossom stamp set, Sweet Baby, on a PPPR chalkboard! I embossed the prints using white powder. 

I used the following cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons...

Other Supplies I used to make my layout...
- Sweet & Innocent Face Stamp Assortment from Peachy Keen
- Sweet Baby Stamps from Jaded Blossom
- Berry twine from Trendy Twine
- Journaling tag from Pretty Little Studio
- sequins and buttons from Dollarstore
- Momenta pattern paper

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT Day!

Hey everyone!!! It's Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT Wednesday!! 

My daughter, Brittyn, recently turned three and she is in love with Spider-man! (I really have no idea why...) Since I am having a joint Princess party for her and her sister in a week, I thought her "family" birthday party could be Spider-man themed! I made her a card and some cupcake toppers using the Superhero Trio files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. 

I printed my Spider-man out, then used my cameo to cut around him. I used some of my new washi tape from Trendy Twine to add a little 'edge' behind Spidey. My sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Super Hero stamp set. 

I cut a bunch of smaller Spideys to add to my toppers. 

Here is what the final product was, but remember, I am a crafter and NOT a baker! :) I have no patience for cake/cupcake decorating! 

Here is what I used to make my projects... 
- Superhero Trio Cutting Files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
- red chevron washi tape from Trendy Twine
- Super Hero stamps from Jaded Blossom

Make sure you head over to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog to check out all the other projects by the ladies on the DT!!
