Ready, Set, Go...a cheery card!

I love bright and cheery colors and Amy Tan's "Ready, Set, Go" line is a dream come true for me.  I got it and within a couple days had designed multiple cards and layouts using it!  Here is one of those cards!  I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and centered it over two different colors on some chevron striped patterned paper.  I love how funky they turned out!  I also used some of my favorite clear stickers from SRM stickers.

Jillibean Soup Tags using Winter Tortellini & Spinach

I created a group of tags for The Scrapbooking Studio that I could use later as either gift tags or on layouts.  This line from Jillibean Soup was perfect for putting together a bunch of tags.  I also used a piece of Pow paper from American Crafts.  I fussy cut the swirl out of the pow paper and used that on each tag to give some unity to the whole group. 

I am really enjoying working with tags to create a series...first a mini calendar and now this.  I may have to attempt an entire mini album soon :)

Supplies Used:
Jillibean Soup Stickers & Patterned Paper: Winter Tortellini & Spinach
American Crafts Pow Paper
Queen & Company Gems

Quick Quotes & Clear Scraps Blog Hop

Hi Quick Quotes & Clear Scraps Fans!  Christne here today to share a home decor creation with you!  I decided to take the tag album a different direction and turn it into a one of a kind frame for my house.

 I used the Cracklin' Rose line to decorate the tags.  It is the perfect match for the earth tones in my house.  I love the way the browns and maroons pop against the acrylic tags and the cream paper. 

 I have a new little 7 week old baby so I had to leave a blank spot for a picture of him.  I tried to keep my design uniform and simple to fit with my own decor style.  Each tag is identical to the next one other than the actual picture.

 I used pieces of scored cardstock to serve as the hinges between the tags.This was a simple project to do that anyone would love as a could easily put one together for a family member for Christmas!

Altered Embroidery Hoop

CARDS Magazine Publication: October

It's the beginning of a new month so I can share my card with you that was published in the October issue of CARDS magazine.  This is one of my all time favorite cards!
It uses patterned papers from Authentique and My Little Shoebox. The sticker is from Momenta and the twine is from The Twinery.  I fussy cut the bottom half of the diamonds and curled them up to create a unique kind of ruffle.  I was so thrilled to see this card featured also as the CARDS magazine cover picture on their facebook page!

Echo Park Layouts

Today I have a couple layouts to share with you that I made for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL!  I loved working with the Echo Park line Everyday Eclectic it is full of all kinds of trendy things like chevrons and hot air balloons as well as having bright, fun colors.

 This layout was my first attempt at the trendy Sunburst look.  It is challenging but once I got it done I liked the results.  

This layout I did lots of mitering on.  Someone asked me to create a tutorial on how I did that...I will get on that!  I love the bright colors and overall fun look to this layout!
