Graduation cards w/ Kreaxions & Moxxie

 Are you in need of graduation cards this spring?
I am and these Kreaxions punches are making it super simple to spruce up an older Graduation line I have from Moxxie.

I started with punch #909 but punched the design too far apart so I started over and lined up the designs closer to do this card.

It gives it a really fancy and pretty border, but was really simple to make.

Then I went back to the first paper I had punched and looked at it again. I cut off the portion between the flower and corner cut, punched the top with #912, lining up the design to slightly over lap and I had another beautiful card.

No scraps were wasted in the making of these cards. ;)

Grad cards w/ Moxxie & LMT

 Hello there! Today I have some fun Graduation cards.
It tis the season after all!

I started with an older Graduation Day line from Moxxie, that I still have in my stash. What better way to spruce up an old line than to add NEW tapes right?!

I layered the Yellow and Blue Stars tapes on this card. 
They perfectly match our school colors!

For this card I picked 3 patterns from the yellows to match our school colors, then layered them on the base of my card before adding the embellishments.

Using the polka-dot, stripe and star tapes, I layered a strip and then cut each end into a banner for a little subtle detail.

I'm off to make some more graduation cards and using Love My Tapes makes it so easy!!

It's Your Day card w/ LMT & Moxxie

 Hi! Happy Wednesday to you.
I have a fun card here that you could use for almost any occasion.
This one is geared toward mother's but replace that flower and you've got a great all occasion card.

I started with a white base and pulled out these lovely colors of polka dot tapes from Love My Tapes.

I used the blue polka dot first and made some layers along the  bottom of my card. I then double layered some pretty patterns from the Springtime line from Moxxie and then used an older stamp for my sentiment.

Then I used a strip of the purple and lime along with another strip of the blue to make some banners in the top right corner. Then you have a wonderful, bright and fun base to build the rest of your card on! Last I added this fun stamp that I fussy cut after stamping on some pretty Springtime paper and a bit of stickles to make my card pop.

Thanks for stopping by.

Magical Memories w/ MS&M

 Today I'm sharing with you this lovely sketch from My Scraps & More Sketches:

I used the fun Magical Moments line from Moxxie:

And created this layout:

These are some old pictures from a trip to Disney World back in the day.
Unfortunately my photos skills weren't what I would have liked but these photos still represent beautiful moments that I will always cherish. I've found that cutting these photos down can actually help you focus on what you were really trying to capture and this sketch was perfect for that.

I did a lot of layering of the fun cut outs and stickers. Including using the black circles that come on the sticker sheet to create my own mickey head!

I love using the stickers but don't always want to use the entire thing, so I just cut out the portion I do want, like I did here with the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

Softball Treats w/ Love my Tapes.

I have a fun Team Treat project to share with you today.

My daughter's softball season is in full swing and I like to help encourage them with little treats here and there. They were headed to take on a particularly tough team recently and I thought I would encourage them with this fun treat.

I cut the bats with my silhouette, added a bit of inking and the quote. Then taped the handle, just like a real bat, with Blue Stars washi tape from Love My Tapes!

I used the Tape Runner I received from the store because I'm always having trouble with the decorations popping off the treats with my normal glue.

I can't believe how well it worked!
My daughter took these on a 2 hour bus ride and when she gave me the extras the next day, the bat and ball were still stuck solidly to the bag!!
I can honestly say my last glue did not do that.

Here's a close up of the project for you:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
