Okay, here’s the thing – I love a good pun! In fact, most of my cards here at SCS have some sort of play on words. So, when I was originally thinking about this card today, I thought I would play a bit with the work “believe”, teaming it up with the bee hive for more of a “bee-lieve” card.
But once I started fussy cutting the elements from DCWV’s new Honey Chic stack, and started layering them on top of each other, the card seemed so elegant that my happy little pun just didn’t seem to fit. So, as much as I hate to say it, I bee-lieve that this card is much better pun free (but perhaps not this post about it ;)).
If you haven’t seen this great new stack yet, it’s worth a trip down to your local JoAnn to have a look! The colours are fresh and the patterns are crisp, and it is filled with lots of great journaling tags and fussy cutting delights. I have already used it three times this month (another card and a layout), and I am not finished yet! In fact, I have a fun little home decor project to show you next week!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you have an amazing weekend, and have some time to get crafty or to do something else that you really love! Thanks for stopping by!
I have some pictures of my little gals that have been waiting around quite awhile to make their way onto a scrapbook page. I love it when my pages can help tell a story about the girls – it’s really why I create them in the first place – and while, for me, the paper is not “the story” it really can be one of those really important supporting characters. So sometimes, waiting for “the right paper” is worth it!
When the new “Honey Chic” stack from DCWV arrived on my door step, I was immediately struck by the fresh colours. Here in Canada, it can take awhile for the full transition from winter to spring, so while we start to see bright pops of green around April, there are still lots of browns and deeper colours to provide lots of contrast.
This stack is full of that fresh contrast in patterns and colours, so I thought it was a great support to some pictures I have of my youngest daughter – our little spit fire who is all about fun, playful adventures!
I love that there are some really feminine patterns and colours in this stack without being overly girlie. There are also a bung of great journaling tags that are even bold an bright enough to double as a title or feature for your page – like this one with a great “Hello Gorgeous” graphic.
Oh, and now a days, a layout simply would not be complete without some fussy cutting, so this one features some great little flowers that are cut from one of the patterns – easy little shapes that can be bent up on the edges for a bit more dimension.
So there you have it. I love these pictures of my little gal, but I think this paper really helps to make them pop and tell the story of my littlest character! Thanks for stopping by!
January is such a crazy month, and I have to admit that I am always a little glad when it is over! Up here in Calgary it is usually cold and snowy, and the short daylight makes for a long month. So, when I was going through photos of my girls, I had to laugh when I saw this one! This picture of my youngest is probably how I looked all month! It was time to get this one scrapped!
You might remember earlier in the month, I was singing the praises of a fun new collections of papers and embellishments from DCWV. Well, I couldn’t help but pull it out again for this layout. The colours were a great fit with the photo, and I thought the alphas would be perfect for the simple title!
As usual, I did a fair amount of fussy cutting for this layout. There are lots of fun shapes that are perfect embellishments with a little foam adhesive on the back.
If you haven’t been over to Michaels to check this one out yet, it really is worth the trip. Although my projects have all been on the “girlie” side, there really is a lot you can do with the textures, browns, blues and yellows for more masculine projects too! It’s a great stack, and the embellishments, cards and stamps just add a little bit of extra fun!
Well, that’s it for me this weekend! I hope you enjoy your Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
Well, you might think that I am nearing the end of my Vintage Collector collection from DCWV, but there are so many goodies that I’m not even halfway through! So, I thought today it would be fun to share another card with you using some of the fun elements in this collection, including some stamps! That’s right my stampy friends – stamps!
This little card was made by teaming up one of the card bases from the collection with some of the patterned papers and stamps. I used the large chevron inspired cling stamp to add a bit of contrasting ink to the card base, and then simply layered some of the patterned pieces of paper from the 12X12 stack on top. I finished it off by stamping a sentiment from one of the clear stamp sets with Distress ink to match the rustic feel of the paper. With a bit of glitter from the adhesive rhinestones and some stickers topped with some Glossy Accents, I think this card is a fun example of what is possible with the unique components of this collection. I really love what DCWV did with this line – I hope they will try it again with others in the near future! In the meantime, I can;t wait to share more projects with you this month! Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by!
