Thanks

 Hello everyone and Happy Saturday to all! Todays card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using Beautiful Polka Dot Satin, Sweetheart Blossoms, embellishments, and foam Squares. Love this Red Polka dot ribbon as it makes for super easy and fun bows! I also created my card for The Project bin using their darling stamps!!


I used some old design paper 6 x6 pad, and then made a few layers using red card stock to matt each layer. Next I used Cheery Lynn dies for the doily. My sentiment is from The Project Bin stamps using Autumn's Calling set, and stamped in black ink. Next I chose to use the Sweetheart Blossom and some branches for my floral under the sentiment.

Bow was created using the Satin Polka dots, and hen I used a RRR flower Embellishment for the center.

Layers were popped using RRR Foam Squares.
 My card was super fun to make, and I really enjoyed sharing it today with you all!
Thank you for looking and have a lovely weekend!

Club Scrap June Artist Team Challenge

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps June Artist Team Challenge! This month the June Challenge is"One Layer" using Club Scrap collections of papers and stamps. Our task was to create layouts, cards or other projects using 1 paper and stamps. This was a CHALLENGE for me, as you all know I LOVE LOTS of layers..hehehehehe

Now you should have arrived from Debbie's Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss any of the Design Teams beautiful creations.
For my 3 cards I used white card stock, and then combined the stamps from the Delft Collection and this months Pattern Play Collection.

I LOVE using lots of layers, so this was a challenge for me. I figured I would decorate with the beautiful floral stamps from Delft Collection, and then use the sentiments from Pattern Play. Delft has to be one of my many favorite kits.

I did use the stencil for the Happy Birthday and then the Thanks card. The other card was done using a piece of design paper, and then stamps. I do love how these turned out for being only one piece of paper...hehehe
hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed creating my cards for today using the Pattern Play Collection and Delft Collection ! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!

Sweet William Flower Card

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all!
Today I have a card created for Cheery Lynn using the beautiful Sweet William Strip Flower die, along with a few other fun dies :)

I started with picking some design paper, and after that I knew what I wanted to do. The Sweet William Flowers are so pretty and I thought they would look perfect cut with the coordinating design paper from this line. I used Crate Paper line for this card. I did distress each flower, and kept them single layers, and added a pearl to the center of each one. Pearls used are 8, 10, 12 mm pearls.

The layers I cut are the Royal Scandinavian Doily die, LPC4 Circle die, Flourish #8 die, and of course the beautiful sweet William Strip die.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Royal Scandinavian Die DL280
LPC4 Circle die,
Flourish 8 die
Sweet William Strip die B307

The ribbon, fabric button, and pearls are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps, Born Yesterday stamp set!
 I love how this card turned out, and so glad I pulled some of my older design papers out to use. It's nice to use them up, and it's like having new papers again...hehehhehe
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoyed today's post!
Have a nice day!

I also added pearls to the centers. The green leaves were dusted using a green club scrap ink. The flourish was colored with moss green ink and placed 1st before the flowers and leaves.


Whatever You Are BEA A GOOD ONE is from The Project bin stamp set called "Wise Men"! I stamped it in black ink using the Mini Misti tool, thank God for that tool as it makes stamping so much more fun....hehehehe

Summer Fun

Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!

Today's post is a super fun summer layout  I made for Really Reasonable Ribbons  using their darling Patriotic Boats on Navy Grosgrain Ribbon. I also made this page for Club Scrap using the DARLING Boardwalk Collection. LOVE how cute this ribbon is, and it goes perfectly with this Club Scraps DARLING design paper. I kept this page pretty simple, just a couple of photo mattes, a tag, and the title using Thickers.

I embellished with sewing, white gel dots, ribbons, cabochons , and the little RRR flowers. Normally I will add some handmade flowers to my pages, but really loved the way this looked with no flowers.
For the photo mattes I used the darling ribbon and made bows and added the glass cabochons to the centers.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Patriotic Boats on Navy Grosgrain Ribbon
Scor Tape 1/4"
12mm flat backed glass cabochons
10mm Resin Flowers

Other supplies:
Club Scrap Boardwalk design paper, and card stock
Club scrap Boardwalk Oval sticker for tag
Cheery Lynn die
White gel pen
Thickers for title
I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Sunflower Layout

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all!
Today I have another project created using this Beautiful Sunflower collection from Club Scrap. I also designed this page for The Project Bin using the stamp set called "Autumns Calling". Love Love LOVE how this page turned out. I didn't add a photo to it yet, as I think I will wait until I put the entire album together. This will be going in an 12 x 12 album I will do later this year, adding all the pages I've created using club scrap kits.
Pretty simple page to create , as I started out with the 12 x 12 green card stock that comes in this kit, and cut it down to 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" then backed it with the Yellow card stock that is also in this collection. Next I cut the sunflower design paper into a strip to run along the left side of my page, and to border it I used the yellow ric rac that also is in this collection. I then added my sewing to the page.

For the photo frame, I cut a piece from the design paper 8 1/2" x 11" to and layered it on the yellow card stock, and added some sewing. I thought the Cheery Lynn sunflower die would again match perfectly with this page, so I cut 2 sunflowers to layer, and 2 leaves. I distressed them using yellow ink, and the green club scrap ink. For the center I chose to use the sunflower wood button that I distressed with brown ink.

So Grateful Tag-
I created this with one of the cut a part page pieces, and stamped my sentiment from The Project Bin on it., I then layered with the green and yellow card stock, and lastly added some sewing in green.

Bottom Border-
This was also cut from the Cut-A-Part sheet, and layered with the card stock. I then added some sewing to it. The ribbon bows were created using Really Reasonable Ribbon Maize Taffeta. In the centers of both bows, I added 2 sunflower sparkle stickers gems that came in the Sunflower Collection Kit. The feathers were from my stash, they were laying on my work station, and I knew they would work perfect on this layout.
 Challenges-
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! thank you for looking and have a super awesome weekend!

Today I have a beautiful card that I created using Club Scrap, Cheery Lynn and the Project Bin supplies. LOVE how cheerful this card is!

To create my card I started with Club Scraps Sunflowers Kit for the design papers and card stock. Next I chose to coordinate using Cheery Lynns Sunflower die. It was cut using white card stock, then distressed using yellow inks. I also used an orange to airbrush on the sunflower. it has 3layers for the flower part. In the center I chose to use the wood sunflower button from the Sunflower kit from Club scrap. I did airbrush it in a brown, and added some stickles to the center..LOVE it! I love how this card turned out for todays post.

My layer for the sentiment was done using Cheery Lynn's Oval Classic, and the Pierced Stacker #2 set. The doily layered behind my sentiment layer is Cheery Lynn's Priscilla Doily

The sentiments are from the Project Bin Stamps Autumn's Calling stamp set.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbons Moss Green Satin with grosgrain edge.

 I love this design paper, and how perfect the sunflower die goes with it. Cant wait to create a layout using this beautiful die, and gorgeous design paper!

Happy Birthday to you was stamped using the Ruby Red and Blue Amethyst ink pads from Club Scrap and using the Mini Misti tool. This stamp came from the set called "Adirondacks Greetings Un Mounted"

Love needs no words card

 Hello everyone, today I have a card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and for The Project Bin. On this card I used the Beautiful new  Shutter Window shaker die kit from Cheery Lynn Dies, and the Tea Rose small die. Love these shaker dies from Cheery Lynn as they are super fun and easy to create.

The flowers I chose to use are Cheery Lynn Tea Rose small die I cut them out using white card stock, then dusted them with 2 different pinks. Next I added some mini beads for the centers. The leaves were dusted using a green ink from club scrap.

Window was created using some old old crafty secrets design paper. Love the pattern for the window. The little flowers for the shaker part were airbrushed using a pink copic marker.

Sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps called Spencer's Set. I stamped it in black, and then dusted the edges in the same pink as the flowers.

Ribbon is satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon
