Welcome to my Blog!

Good morning. Today I am going to share with you a couple of things I have been working on right now. The first is a card for a dear friend of mine whose Mother-in-Law passed away recently and the second is a layout of my kids. Enjoy!

First is the card. I used an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called Lost & Found Two for the base, then I cut a piece of dark brown from the pad at an inch wide and mounted that in the middle of the card. I die cut a circle from the polka dot paper just slightly larger than my stamped piece. Then I stamped the Unity Stamp Co. ...Everything Wonderful sentiment stamp on the circle stamp that comes in the set. I die cut that out as well and mounted it on the polka dot paper. I have a set of Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles Die Set that I use to die cut all of my circles which makes it easy to cut nesting circles like this. I then mounted the circles onto the card with pop dots to give it some dimension.

Next up is the layout of my kids. I used a Studio Calico kit from February of 2015 (I am WAY behind on those kits!) called Cirque Scrapbook Kit.The whole title and papers at the bottom of the layout are from that kit. The top of the layout is Heidi Swapp's line called Favorite Things. The paper, the word strips, the flower, the label sticker and the epoxy stickers are all from that line.

Thanks for visiting and have an awesome day!
