New Bo Bunny Products and an inspired card.

   I made it back from CHA. Such a good show and so much fun with my girlfriends. There is a ton of new product coming out. I can't wait. Some of my favorites were the Jazmyne line from Bo Bunny, The Girls Paperie and all of the Crate Paper lines. I didn't take many pics, but my sweet friend Jennifer Findlay did and she has been posting them on her blog...check them out, her blog is on my sidebar under AMM girls.

Now on to business. First, some of my Bo Bunny projects. This first is a layout where we had to use some
 of the BB cardstock stickers

Second a card where we were required to use a heart anywhere on it.

Both of the previous items used the Persuasion line from Bo Bunny. The embossed frame on the card came from a Quickutz embossing folder and then I lightly sanded it so that the white core of the Double Dot paper showed.

This last card came from two different sources of inspiration. The first was from Melissa Phillips. She has started posting photos for inspiration on her blog. This was the photo. Isn't it gorgeous?!

I also used the Card Positioning Sketch #151 for this card.

I spritzed some vellum with Glimmer Mist  to create the flower. The papers are from the new Bayberry line from Pink Paislee.

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Off to take my two littlest to the first of three bday parties in store for us today! Thanks for stopping by.

Kind of makes me want another baby.

For just a brief moment :) What I have here for you is brand new Clear Scraps product. This is their new shaped baby banner. It is adorable. It includes 7 different pieces. One bear, four hearts, and two baby rattles. So, I'll quit talking and let you see it! Remember you can click on the photos to make them bigger. Banners are really difficult to take photos of in their entirety, hopefully you can get a good idea from the close ups!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I have one more project to finish that will go with to CHA for delivery. I'll have to share that one when I get back later next week! Til then!

A card and a layout...

This card is inspired by this weeks sketch over at Card Positioning Systems. I had a busy weekend fulfilling orders for four sets of cards. Went to clean up the mess that I had made on my desk and felt the urge to make one more card with the scraps that were laying around. So I turned to CPS for a quick jumpstart and this was how mine turned out.

This is one of my latest favorite layouts. I love how soft and feminine it turned out. I applied those doily rub ons to a very thin sheet of wood. I love how the two look together. The little flutter of hearts along the left hand side of the photos is from a large Bella Blvd. flower that I cut and separated all of the petals and lined them up along the edge. Such a lovely soft touch. Not to mention those photos...could she be any cuter? Of course her mommy doesn't think so!

We've been given the all clear to share our projects with the new products from Clear Scraps. I have the cutest little banner that I made, just need to attach the pieces to one another and take some photos and I'll post it for you all to take a look see.

The last of winter....

I'm not sure what the weather outside will be doing, but as far as my craftiness this table top decor will be the last of my winter themed projects. Did this one for my Bo Bunny blog assignment. I used the Tis the Season line for this.  I also put my Cricut to use for the sentiment. They are difficult to see in the photo, but do you notice those cute little snowballs? They are called Snow Drops and I got a good sized package of them at one of our local craft stores for 90% off! I'll be using them for a lot of projects next winter.

This next layout is from a scraplift that the A Million Memories design team of a page that one of our members had done. The original layout was by Danielle Flanders, she does such pretty work that it was a fun and easy assignment to do!

Just about one more week until CHA. Wait until you see the products that Bo Bunny and Clear Scraps have coming out. The BB lines and the colors are awesome...lots of options for boy pages and since I have three of those that makes me very happy! Clear Scraps has some fun new banners and mixed albums. I have an adorable baby banner done, just need to assemble the pieces together and get some pics and I'll share it with you.

A Million Memories January kit

This kit was packed full of Webster's Pages and Prima goodness. I made four layouts with it and plenty left to do more or to get some cards done. If you are interested in the kit go here to pick one up.

THis first one is my favorite. Took these pics of my dd on the way to see Santa. I can't wait to run across more of the Basic Grey Origins line, I think I need it all! I used the chipboard letters that were included in the kit as a mask for some Glimmer Mist for the word 'away'.

Had fun with some two tone stitching on this one. Used some more Glimmer Mist behind the words on this one.

Of course with the start of the New Year had to have a layout based on this topic right?!

This last layout is based on a sketch by one of our fellow design team members Lucy Edson. We have a new monthly feature. One of the design team members will be providing a sketch that goes along with the kit. The design team members will all make a layout using the kit based on that sketch. We hope some of the members will join in on the fun!

Just a tad over two weeks left for CHA! Woo hoo! Always so much fun! I can't wait to see all of my AMM girls as well as many other friends that I have made in this industry! I'm busy working on CLear Scraps stuff for their booth. I'll make sure to come back and post it all when I can.

Mix it UP!

Have you ever tried working on acrylic??? How about an album that is a mix of acrylic and chipboard??? Sounds like fun huh? Well, Clear Scraps has released some new albums that are a mix of both of those things. In such a fun size too. The dimensions of this album are about 6x12". This one is full of butterfly and flower shapes. You can check out the other albums that are available by clicking here and looking under mixables on the left hand side of the page.

I used My Mind's Eye papers for this, painty pens around the edges of the acrylic pages and Hambly doily rub ons for the cover and the last page (those are my favorite thing right now!!!)

Anybody know what tomorrow is????? Back to school!!!! :)
