Happy Birthday to you!

Thought I would pop in and share a card that I made a couple of weeks ago for one of my husband's partners who was celebrating her 40th birthday...

Used Glitz Designs papers and dies/stamps from Papertrey Ink.

Loving the happy colors here. Topped it off with some hand-dyed seam binding, twine, button and jewels.

Are you all ready for Christmas??? I have gifts all purchased, but lots of wrapping to go.
Oh, and lots of family feels the need for all of the holiday treats.

Happy Wednesday to you all!

Big Brother...

I was going through my photo files and found a few layouts for My Mind's Eye that I haven't shared here on my blog yet. Time to play a little catch up.

Starting with my favorite of the bunch! This was for a color inspiration photo, I decided to use more than just the colors in this mood board, but also many of the other little details that you can see in the photo.

I pulled the ombre, chevrons, black glitter, and hole "pokes" from the photo.

Love this photo, she had no idea he was in the house behind her looking out the window. Love how the bright foliage in our yard is reflecting in the window...camouflaging him.

Used the Miss Caroline, Lost & Found Record It (Heirloom), and Chalk Studio collections for this.

Christmas cards

Happy Tuesday!!! I have a few cards to share with you today! Last month I subscribed to the Simon Says Stamp monthly card kit. The first kit that I received was the December kit which was holiday themed. Snowflakes, deer, and christmas colors. A fun little kit for sure.

Here are the four cards that I have made this far, still have enough product left to make many many more!

The first the little bit of pink in the paper.'

This second card has the cute little 'Warm holiday wishes' stamped inside. It utilizes the snowflake mask which I misted around and then heat embossed.

For this one I created a background my repeatedly stamping the x's & o's stamp in red and brown and then glittered the entire thing.

Lastly a sparkly heart, I used those tiny little sequins and outlined my heart with them. The big stamped heart in the sentiment is sparkly too, I just colored it in with a red Spica glitter pen.

Thanks for stopping by today!

How Sweet It Is

Brrrrr.....hope you all are staying warm during this arctic chill. Today I have a layout from My Mind's Eye to share with you. This one was a style swap layout. Tina (Walker) and I were assigned to do a layout based on using each other's style.

I am one of Tina's biggest fans so I was excited for this project. When I look at Tina's style I see layers, mixed media and lots of photos of her beloved dog. To start with I pulled out a photo of my husband and our dog asleep on the couch, a weekly (at least) occurrence in our house! I started by cutting out a mask for the stars and then misted them onto my base page. The clouds are stamps.

Aren't they cute?! They even share a pillow!

Sprinkled some brads, chipboard buttons, ink sprinkles and enamel dots here and there.

All products are from the Cut & Paste Charm Collection.
