Happily Ever After

On this card, I used the color combination that is on one of the sheets of Gold Soiree specialty paper - Garden Green and Crisp Cantaloupe.  To add a little texture, I used the Chevron folder in the background and my sentiments come from Big News (love those large stamps!).

Two Tone Ornament

I am sure you have probably seen the fun ornaments the lucky Founder's Circle attendees created and have shared lately.  Well, I wanted to give them a try too and it was really fun to put together!
I embellished mine without a bow, just an All is Calm snowflake embellishment and a little tag with a sentiment from Making Spirits bright.

3rd Grade!!

I have used the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life kit for this layout featuring my daughter's third grade class picture.  There are some really fun cards and embellishments that go along with each "season" the collection covers.

I added some images from Kinda Eclectic in the background and they are a little difficult to see on the pictures.

Lastly I added a few buttons and a hardware essentials paperclip.

Sassy and Eclectic

This card was another that a customer ordered from me.  I thought the middle image from Kinda Eclectic that looks like a sun was kind of cheery and fun for a get well card so I started with that in the background.  

The card is made with Naturals White card stock - I like to switch over to that once in awhile.

You did it!

There is quite a hodge podge of elements on this card.  I paired the Trim the Tree designer series paper with some Kraft card stock stamped with Dotty Angles and a sentiment from Bravo.

To the Newlyweds

Back to the Love Story Project Life Cards again for this card!  I used the Heart border punch at the top of a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and then added the Project Life card, a little embellishment and two of the punched hearts to it. 

To keep with the silver theme (on the "mr. & mrs.), I used some silver washi tape from the All is calm collection.

Our county fair is just wrapping up and although my kids are not involved other than as spectators and maybe pedal tractor pull contestants, I thought this card was somewhat fitting.  I used the Yee Haw photopolymer stamp set and added some Flowerpot designer series paper to the mix.

A little bit of linen thread is wrapped around each edge and fastened in the back.
