Adventure Awaits

I love the way this card came out! I was inspired by the colors in this week’s DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. I always feel like I should live on the East Coast when I do nautical challenges–how silly is that?! I just don’t feel as authentic making these cards, hehe. :) The saying is true, isn’t it? I wholly believe that our greatest strengths come out of our greatest struggles.

I attached the brad like a paper clip by bending both metal pieces to one side and sliding both under the Marina Mist tag.

   I’ll announce the winners this Friday! 

Flower Patch

This set had me scratching my head for awhile–I just couldn’t get the right combos! I kept scratching my head and ended up throwing out all my attempts. Well, that has changed because I through out my “rule” book! 😉 So, that’s why there’s a smattering of different colors! Because I said, “you know what–I just need to use this set!” :) By the way, I really love the new Cucumber Crush In Color!!! We needed a this hue of green, don’t you think?

Papillon Potpourri

Hi friends,

I’ve had the pleasure of working on my best friend’s wedding invitations lately so I have not been making many “other” cards. It has been a lot of fun giving her different size, color, layout options, etc–it is definitely right up my alley! Today I met with her to finalize those things so this evening I was able to play with my other supplies :) I was looking at all the DSP options that will be retiring soon and I decided I needed to use some of that up vs. working with the new, rich Bohemian DSP I’ve been gravitating towards. 😉 So, here’s the beautiful card I came up with using some gorgeous Gold Soiree DSP. I just love all the gold elements on this card–it is totally a card my mother would love! :)

Dear Lilly

For those of you who don’t know, I have a two year old daughter named Lilly and she is my little sweetie. Today I made a card and I looked at it and I was hit with inspiration to change the way I currently do something for my daughter.

Currently, I have about 3 journals I write in for Lilly–I write her letters, I share her progress in it, and I share funny moments in them. Right now its really disorganized and I have things in a few different places. After seeing this card today I knew the change I wanted to make! I am going to start writing in the cards I make and keeping them in a pretty Project Life binder. It will be my way of organizing the things I already have and streamlining the things I will write to her in the future. :) I find that I have all these beautiful cards I never send that I could be writing in for my daughter. :)

So, what do you think? Do any other moms do this for their babies? Do you have anything like this from your own mother?

Bold!

I love the Bohemian Designer Series Paper because it is so bold! The colors they used are just fantastic and they really POP!

One thing I don’t like is that you can see Snail Adhesive behind vellum, so, for this card I used my handheld stapler to attach the trim and vellum to the card stock. It worked out perfect!

I also inked the stamp and then covered the flowers with masking tape so they wouldn’t show up on the card stock. I just didn’t think the floral images went with the boho paper. :)
