Scraptastic Club: two more Lost in My Mind cards and April sneaks!

Hey everyone! Just stopping by to share two more cards using Scraptastic Club's Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on.

First up, a fun little card using one of the exclusive wood veneer pieces in the kit:

The colors in this kit are just so amazing and it is filled with such fun embellishments.

For the second card, I immediately saw balloons when I pulled out the American Crafts DIY Shop Chalkboard Speech Bubbles in the add-on. So of course, I went in a birthday direction:

These kits are so jam-packed with product that I still have embellishments I haven't gotten to yet. (I need to get working!)

Now, it is time for the April sneaks. You are going to LOVE these kits!!!

 This Life Noted:

Let Me Go:

Worth Wondering:

Don't they look amazing? I can't wait to start working with mine!

These kits tend to go pretty quickly so ensure getting one, you can subscribe HERE.

But if you prefer not to subscribe, you can take your chances and try and snag one (or all of them!) when they go on sale to the public April 1st. So mark your calendars because you don't want to miss them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pinterest Inspiration

Hey everyone! Just stopping by today to share another project.

Today is my day on the Scraptastic Club blog and it is Pinterest Monday. Pinterest is the best place to search for inspiration and while searching for some, I found this fun print:

I love the mix of colors and shapes in this print, and it inspired me to create this card:

You know I love to make flowers, so I created a pie chart for the center of one. The colors and patterns in the Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on really work well together, so it was so easy to put together.

The perfect use for your leftover paper scraps, don't you think?

You can check out my original post on the Scraptastic Club blog HERE and if you're not too busy, check out stick what the rest of the design team is creating with this month's kits.

Webster's Pages Guest Designer

Hi everyone! I have something fun and exciting to share today.

I was recently asked to do some guest design work for Webster's Pages. They are an amazing company with some of the most gorgeous products available on the market. If you don't believe me, just take a look for yourself. I was sent the new Sweet Routine collection by Adrienne Looman, and it is just GORGEOUS!!! The colors, patterns, and embellishments are pure perfection, and I had such a great time working with them.

I created a layout and four cards using this fabulous new line:

Isn't the collection just beautiful?! I hope my projects show just how much I enjoyed working with these products. 

You can see these all of these projects HERE on the Webster's Pages blog, along with detail shots of each project and a little bio about me. If you get a chance, please stop by and check it out. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!

October Afternoon Sketch

Hey everyone! Today is my day on the October Afternoon blog and I created a sketch for today's post:

I decided to make a card using the sketch:

I stayed pretty true the sketch, substituting the "Hello!" card in place of the photo, the Snap Cap in place of the journaling, and adding a few buttons in place of the stars.

I used the Daily Flash collection (in particular, All Boy and Girl Talk) for the papers, along with buttons from the 9 to 5 collection.

Alex Gadji played along with my sketch this week, and you can see here amazing layout HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Let's Make Today Something

Hey everyone! Just stopping by quick to share a card I created using the new March Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on from Scraptastic Club.

I hand cut some flower stems from patterned paper and cut some flowers using my Cricut Expression® 2 and  Kate's ABCs cartridge to create the flowers on the card.

I just love the black and white against the bright colors. It makes the flowers just pop.

There are a few more of these KITS left, so don't wait too long or you will miss out on a fantastic mix of products.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pinterest Monday

Hey everyone! Today is Pinterest Monday on the Scraptastic Club blog and I chose a fun, colorful print as inspiration:


I was totally inspired by the triangles and colors, so I wanted to create a similar background for a card using patterned paper and cardstock from the March Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on. Here is what I came up with:

I cut out a bunch of little triangles and adhered them in rows at a bit of an angle, and in no particular pattern, across the card front.

I added a small cluster of embellishments along the top of the card (because I didn't want to hide this beautiful pattern), and I finished it off with a little bit of pink baker's twine.

You can see the original post up on the Scraptastic Club blog HERE.

Hope you have found some inspiration from today's project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
