Magnolia-licious Mini Monday!

It's my turn for Mini Monday's at Magnolia-licious. I've used the adorable little
Mini Tilda in Ballet Shoes. I know sometimes it's hard using such a small stamp on a large 6x6 card so sometimes you just have to make yourself a little scene. I did that by stamping this image in a row, and coloring some hardwood floor under their little feet!
I have a class at CMC on creating Hardwood Floor in my This and That Class.
You should hop on over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog and see what the other designers have created for Mini Monday!
Have a great week all!

Magnolia-licious challenge - dig out your vellum!

Hello there crafty peeps!
Today I'm showing you a card for the new challenge at Magnolia-licious. We are to use Vellum. At first I was going to do a little box and I had all my papers layed out.. then I seen how when you lay the vellum on a  piece of paper it lightens the one on the bottom. Well I thought using the vellum for matting would be a great way for people to use it ..easily. Then I used the printed vellum from
 Elle's Studio.. the hearts vellum and the striped vellum that I stamped my sentiment on.
I hope you will join us for our challenge at Magnolia-licious.
If you haven't been by the Magnolia-licious store lately you should stop by and see all of the new collection, all of the designers have the new images colored in the store. It's a great way to see the image fully colored before you buy the stamps. Very inspirational!

Paper - Basic Grey, Vellum is from Elle's Studio
Memento - Copics and Memento
accessories - freckled fawn wood veeners

Scrapbooking makes me so happy!

 I made a few layouts this weekend for a few challenges I wanted to enter in.
I just love Coloring with my Copics but it sure is so much fun to Scrapbook and go back and forth between the 2. Talk about getting a full taste of paper crafting!
This first one is a layout of my friends daughter on her first birthday. this little cutie will soon be my goddaughter. I just love this little girl to pieces!
I've used the sketch from the Pagemaps challenge. I'm also entering this layout in the
Gossamer Blue challenge to add a touch of gold.
I have used my Gossamer Blue Kit which has these beautiful papers from Crate Paper, and LOVE these frames and Flairs. I've also used some tags from Elle's Studio and Chic Tags, Alphas are American Crafts, stickers are My Minds Eye and balloons are Kasier Craft.

This next layout is from last year at my 30th Birthday. Ive used lots of Teresa Collins products, papers, brads and dies. I just adore the new lines she came out with at CHA. I've also used some Elle's Studio, Chic Tags, and the Flair is from Paper Bakery. The wood veeners are from Freckled Fawn.

I mixed all my colors up though. :)

Wild Orchid Crafts - Purple and Green Challenge!

Happy Monday my peeps!
Today there's a new challenge over at Wild Orchid Crafts.
We have a color combo this week. Purple and Green. I know what you are all thinking..
There's no flowers on this card. Well, I thought a cluster of flowers would look a little off since my main focus is a flower stamp from Lili of the Valley's newest release! I thought this would be a great way to showcase some of Wild Orchid's NON-flower products, that we tend to forget about. I have used some of the raffia ribbon around my card and I took one of these little bows.. which there are a ton of colors available, it's perfect to add some dimension to my vase. I added some german glass glitter to the shadow under my vase and then some large purple pearl brads.. LOVE THESE!
Well I hope you will remember about these other great products at Wild Orchid Crafts.
I hope you will play along in our challenge this week!
See you tomorrow for a new Challenge at Magnolia-licious.

Paper - Basic Grey
Ink - Memento and Copics
