No Squares Here!

I was asked to design a scrapbook page for a challenge going on at PW for NSD. I love to do smaller scrapbook pages and this 6x9 layout was a lot of fun to work on. The challenge offered to other PW members was to create a layout that was not your typical square layout.

My layout is very simple with few embellishments, but I like it that way. You can do a lot with some paper scraps and a little VersaMark. :) This is my cute little neice, Cylee. My husband and I got to spend a whole day with her and her older brother, Calin, last August and we had a blast!! This will be a great page to help remember that day.

Mini Notecards

I played with one of the new hostess sets from Serendipity this evening. There's not much to these, but I think they are cute. They are quick to make, too!!

Color Challenge

I decided to take a color challenge that was offered by Laurie over at PW. The challenge was to use gray, black and white. I kept trying to use a piece of gray cardstock, but I gave up and used some gray ribbon instead. Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Card

I just love the 'Edge Designs' stamp set. It just adds a little extra something to your project. For this card, I glued a scrap of teal paper to my white card base and then stamped one of the 'Edge Design' stamps next to it with Noir Palette ink. The floral images come from a new set called 'Floral Patches' and I stamped the image in Claret Palette ink onto white cardstock and then cut the images out. My sentiment (birthday wishes) is from the set 'Little Cupcake'.

A card and some news...

I'm sorry for not posting in so long. I have been taking a little time off because my husband and I are expecting our first child!!! I'm just about at 13 weeks and I'm finally getting a little energy back. I've been going to bed at 8:30pm most nights and haven't felt like doing any paper crafting. I'm feeling good today and decided to try and make a card. I didn't have many ideas flowing, but finally came up with this. The colors in the cake didn't show up very good, sorry. There is a thin green mat behind the cream cardstock piece. I used it to help with some of the green flowers I put on the cake. I like this new stamp set (Little Cupcake), but I'm never quite sure on how to color everything. Well, hubby and I are heading to a movie. I hope to have some more new new stuff to post and share soon!!
