Peachy Keen Guest Designer!

Today I am a guest over at Peachy Keen and I feel so lucky to be able to share my projects there!

I have totally fallen in love with the January release and was fortunate enough to be able to play with a couple of the new sets. Since I have recently purchased and started learning how to use alcohol markers, I just had to color the adorable little tea pot from the January Stamp of the Month set.

I cut my tea pot out as well as three little tea cups. 

To make sure my tea pot stood out and was the focus of my card (I know... How could it NOT be, it's so cute!!) I used a couple of pop dots to adhere it to my card.

The supplies I used on this card are...
- PKSC-25 Peachy Keen Stamp set
- Echo Park paper
- washi tape
- sequins
- Spectrum Noir markers

For my second project I created a fun little layout using the new Sweet On You face assortment stamps. These little faces are so popular right now and I have seen them used on so many super cute projects. 

These faces look great on SO many different items and I thought one would make the cutest little lady bug! 

I think the best part of these faces is being able to color the eyelids! So fun!

Here are the supplies I used to create this layout...
- Sweet on You Peachy Keen Face Assortment Stamp set
- Sweethearts Collection from Doodlebug Designs
- Jaded Blossom Fancy Treat Topper Die
- Cute Ladybug SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables
- Queen & Co bling

I hope I was able to inspire you with my projects today!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Pamper Yourself

Hey friends!! I have been playing with my new alcohol markers a lot lately and have a new found love for all the awesome Jaded Blossom image stamps!!

My mom donated a gift certificate to a spa to a charity event and I gladly volunteered to make something that would hold the card. (Of course the card in there isn't the real card...) 

I am so in love with using the new SVG Outlines available! So much quicker and cleaner than fussy cutting! 

Here is what I used to make my card...
- Trendy Twine
- Spectrum Noir markers

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Doodlebug Sweethearts Collection - Mailbox and Matching Card

Hey Doodlebug peeps!! I am super excited to share my Valentine's Day project with you today! 

As soon as I saw the Sweethearts Collection I was so inspired by the little envelopes with notes inside. I decided I wanted to make a cute little mailbox and a matching shape card. 

Of course my mailbox had to be filled with pretty chocolate!! 

To add some small detail to my card I cut little pieces off a red Pixie and added them with a touch of quick drying adhesive. 

I couldn't stop with the mailbox and the card - I had to Doodle-fy the chocolates as well! I used a fun candy wrap die as well as some of the awesome washi tape that matches this collection. 

Even the Pixie "beads" look yummy enough to eat!!

Lovely Banner

I love that banners are popular as props in portrait photography right now! Mostly because I love making banners and I love photography!! Since I frequently have photo shoots with my daughters, I thought the Yours Truly collection from Pebbles would work perfectly to create a fun banner to use as a prop.

I used a simple die from Jaded Blossom to create each pennant in my banner and decorated each piece using stickers, tags, chipboard pieces as well as other fun elements in this collection.

Although this banner may look like it was rather involved to make, it was actually very quick! Since there is such a great variation of embellishments in this collection I found it very easy to make each pennant unique and pretty.

I also had to share some of the pictures from the photo shoot with my daughter, so you can all see the banner in action!

The banner will also make a great piece of Valentine’s Day d├ęcor!

Here is what I used to make my banner...

Sweethearts Collection - Adore You Layout

Hey everyone! Today is a very exiting day for me - I am sharing my very first project as part of the Doodlebug Design DT!! 

I have a super sweet layout using goodies from the Sweethearts Collection. 
I did a Valentine's Day photoshoot with my girls last year and I have been hanging onto the pictures, waiting for the perfect scrapbooking goodies to turn them into a layout! 

Since my daughter's outfit is black I wanted to add touches of black in my layout. The little bit of black looked great with the colors in this collection - love how it turned out! 

I made my own title by using a flag die from Jaded Blossom and some of the black Love Letters cardstock stickers, as well as a pretty red heart jewel. 

Some of my favorite embellishments in the Sweethearts Collection are these adorable die cut envelopes and letters!! SO cute! I was so happy with how this layout turned out that it now also functions as Valentine decor in my living room! 

Here is what I used to make my layout...

Hey everyone!! How awesome was last week's Jaded Blossom release?? Are your heads still spinning?? :) 

I have a fun little card to share with you today using one of my favorite Jaded Blossom stamp sets - Forest Friends and some paper and stickers from Doodlebug Design. 

I used one of the Flag Dies to make the perfect little spot for my sentiment by trimming down my flag after I ran it through my Big Shot.  

I added some pop dots behind my tree's leaves to give my card some fun dimension. 

Here are the goodies I used on my card...
Jaded Blossom Forest Friends Stamp Set
Jaded Blossom Flag Dies 2
Doodlebug Design Happy Harvest Paper and stickers
- Pebbles washi tape
