The Singlers...

Even more SEI Winnie's Walls. I can't get enough of this paper kit. For this layout the patterned paper, rhinestone brads, sticker tab and ribbon are all from the SEI Winnie's Walls kit. The flowers are Lil Davis chipboard flowers that I covered with Winnie's Walls paper and inked the edges. I used cricut font Stamped for the title and outlined them with a white uniball signo pen, which I also used to free-hand "the".

Me at 35

She has a new name...

My sister with her baby girl last spring. I had so much fun working with this S.E.I. Winnie's Walls kit again. I used the velvet paper (love love it!), the matching buttons and sticker letters. I also used a dymo labler for part of the title and the "Mom" is a We R Memory keepers distressed out Family phrase. I inked it white with a Color Box ink brush pad. I also outlined the page with a white uniball signo pen.


Oh my goodness! I am so in love with the new "Halfway Cafe" kit from Cosmo Cricket!! Everything here is from the set except for the ink and the brads.

For this layout I only used three products. Daisy D's Modern Romance papers, matching journaling die cuts, and Li'l Davis Chipboard. Super simple, yet it has a sophisticated look.

Crate Keychain

This is a keychain I recieved as a freebie when I went to CHA last month. It was plain chipboard shapes when i received it. I decided to dress it up, and settled on the Crate "Twirl Collection" as the paper to use. First I traced the shapes on the back side of the paper and cut them out. Then I mod podged the paper on, and then blinged it out with ki memories and Heidi Swapp jewels. Love how it turned out. And when I was done I thought what a fun project to make for friends or kids. You could easily take any chipboard shape and punch a hole in it. Mod Podge it with any cute paper, and then use a jump ring to attach it to an existing keyring, back pack, purse, etc...

Sweet Sarah

I'm loving this Daisy D's Modern Romance Paper! For this layout I used the Daisy D's paper, and two of the reversable journaling die cuts that are included in the Premium Paper pack. I hand cut the pattern directly beneath the lower left corner of the photo and slipped the photo under it. Then I repeated the pattern above the journaling using a brown pen. Li'l Davis Stripped Chip Chipboard Doodles bring the doodled look on around to the lower right hand corner. The lower left corner is adorned with a Li'l Davis Tinseltown Glitter Flower, and I used some snipped off petals to dress up the prima in the top right hand corner. Finally, I carried the glittery look across the page by adhering glitter to a We R Memory Keepers Distressed Out dimensional word ("sweet").

"Thank you to go!"

So I saw these adorable "to go " boxes at Joann's the other night and I knew could come up with something fun to do with them! I made 3 "Thank you to go" boxes. they are filled with shredded white and red filler, and then of course the required chocolates abound!

For the tags I used the BasicGrey "Sweetie" paper from the Blush line. Used rub on's from Making Memories. I inked the edges with Ranger ink and then adhered it to red cardstock which I then just freehand cut. I used primas and brads and gems to finish it off. And then some red satin ribbon to tie to the handle of the box. Pretty cute i think, and great for a group thank you, when you have lots to give!
