Happy Birthday card w/ LMT

 Here's a fun and quick birthday card.

I started with a white base and added a layer and a half of Red & Blue triangles tape from Love My Tapes to the top by layering it over itself. It makes me think of a fun banner.
I followed that up with a cute Happy Birthday tape.
Then I layered the Blue Stars tape, traced a large star onto it and used an exacto knife to gently cut through the tape. Peel the extra tape up and you have your star.


To finish it off I used Moxxie's red alpha for the 12 and cut some stars from the blue tape and a similar yellow tape to add as embellishment, along with a bit of doodling and inking.

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.

Mother's day card w/ Kreaxions

 Hello, I have a beautiful Mother's day card to share with you.

I started with the gorgeous Springtime line from Moxxie.

Using the Dandelion Wishes paper as my base I punched a flower from the bottom corner of my card using Punch #309 from Kreaxions and then decided to use the bottom portion of the punch create a layered pink flower, adding a gem to the center to finish the look.

Then I added the butterfly punch outs from Punch #901 for embellishment.

For the inside portion of the card I used the same two punches to add decoration to the sentiment and then reassembled the purple flower in the corner.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Baseball lo w/ Moxxie

Today I'm working with the new All Star Baseball line from Moxxie.

In my family we do a lot of softball and baseball so I was ecstatic to get this line and jumped right into creating this layout:

I started with Play Ball as my base adding inked barcode strips from Play Ball and All Star Cutouts and the bat and ball strip from the cutouts paper also. Then I added mist to the page and started arranging my photos on the page.

I had a lot of fun using the cutouts sheet for my photo mats. The ball stitching along my main photo was cut off a journaling card.

A title is really easy to put together with the awesome sticker sheet!

Some of my favorite stickers on the sheet are the chevrons. They are great for pointing out things you might miss just glancing at the photo. Like the ball in my main photo or the ball in my son's catcher mitt in this photo.
The red alphas are perfect for this line. I love the way you can put them down and then move them a little if you need (like when you forget a t ;) )

Thanks for stopping by!
