Hello DC

Hey Again Everyone! A few days ago I mentioned that I had been busy completing my Scrap Album from my recent trip to Washington D.C...and.... I said I would share.. So that is what I am doing today. :) if you have been following me for awhile, you know my issues with scrapping in general. Now don't get me wrong, I love to scrap. My problem is that I get lost is All there is to scrap at times.. ;) I was determined that this time I was not going to make this too hard on myself.. it was a 4 day trip.. how hard could that be? I decided to use the So you Project kit form the Occasions mini. The perfect size, and everything is there for me to complete the album in one sitting, OK maybe two.. Whoop! The project kit coordinates with a stamp set, also from the Occasions min, called So You.. Love it! Here is the front of my Album-

A big bonus with this kit, there are sample layouts right is the package.. with step by step instructions for those layouts.. So if you are new to scrapping, SU took care of all the guess work. Perfect for even the seasoned scrapper, with all that is included in the kit! Here are some of my favorite pages -

where we stayed in D.C.... and -

some of our favorite sites there.. :) This was such a fun Project, I think I will have to get another kit, and tell my husband to take me someplace else so I can do it all over again! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Soiree Of Kindness

Hello Everyone! I have a quick share this evening... I am trying to get ready for my club ladies this weekend, and getting my samples made and paper cut, and really trying to decide as to what we are going to make. I had decided last time we met that we would be using the Butterfly Thinlit dies from the Occasion mini catalog, I have spied SO many beautiful cards made with the Butterfly Basics Bundle, but SU has been having issues with back orders that are simply out of their control, I needed to change gears fast. Hmm.. what do I have in my stash that has a butterfly and coordinating tool.?. Well,... I have Kinda Eclectic, and that coordinates with the Elegant butterfly punch... Yea!! Here is my card - 

I paired it with some of the Gold Soiree DSP, considering that some of the colors and the paper are soon on their way out, and if my ladies haven't played with them yet it had better happen soon. A really straight forward card with DSP, Paper, and ink! Perfect for club! OK... one down and two to go.. best get busy! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! 


Stamps - Kinda Eclectic
Paper - Whisper White, Gold Soiree DSP, Brushed Gold
Ink - Calypso Coral, Garden Green, Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories - 2 1/2 inch circle punch, Elegant Butterfly punch, Crisp cantaloupe thick Bakers twine, Basic rhinestones, Calypso coral blendabilities marker, Dimensional dots

Butterfly Basics

Hey Everyone.. I have a share today.. I have a few birthdays to celebrate in the next few weeks.. So I broke down and made a few cards for my stash. My Sister-in law celebrates her birthday on St. Patrick's Day, and I always try to send her a card that is not a combined St. Pats/Birthday card. This year I used the new Butterfly Basics Set from the Occasions mini catalog. Lots of cards being made with this set as of late, so there is lots of inspiration out there on the Internet..:) Here is my/her card -

I chose to use some of the All Abloom DSP from the main catalog. I forgot that I even had some.. and how could I.. so many fun and bright patterns.. I cut my butterfly out, added it, but I thought it looked a little flat against the papers, so I cut out a second butterfly, but used window sheet this time, it added the perfect amount of depth I was looking for.

 I also colored my designer vintage buttons with my lightest Rich Razzleberry  blendabilities marker, to add a pop of color, and bring it all together. :) OK, I need to be off to get this puppy in the mail. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
