Birthday Card

Using a paper piecing from Little Scraps of Heaven, here's a quick card I made for a friend's 3 year old grandson.

Hope you like it!

Little Scraps of Heaven Challenge

Here's a layout I made of my son graduating high school.  The challenge was to create a layout following the sketch and use at least ONE paper piecing from Little Scraps of Heaven.  The sketch can be found on their Facebook page here.

Mark your calendars for the first ever Little Scraps of Heaven Designs blog hop. There is going to be so much fun you won't want to miss it!

Spring has Sprung

I just entered into a challenge on Little Scraps of Heaven's Facebook page.  The challenge was to create a project related to SPRING.  The only rule was to use one of their cutting files.  They have tons and tons of gorgeous files to choose from here.

Here's my layout!  I used their Spring Is In The Air set.  Love those little bears!  I used some fabric flowers for the bouquet and glitter paper for the butterflies.  To make the net, I cut out the pattern on a clear piece of page protector then covered it in grey magic mesh!!  I like how that turned out.

Clownin Around

Thought I'd share a layout I finished using Treasure Box Designs cutting file "Clowin Around".

Click on the picture for a closer look!

I embossed the icing on the cake with the cuttlebug and "stickled" the streamers.  Love that clown!
(oh shoot!  I'm missing a purple stickled streamer in this picture   It is now on the layout IRL....between Birthday Girl and the mat underneath it.)

Birthday Card Challenge

Hey everyone!  There's a Birthday Card Challenge going on over at Treasure Box Designs! (when you get there, go to their Facebook and click on "notes").

Just complete a card using one or more of their cutting files (they are awesome)!!

Here's mine!

The little girl is from the Rockin Rachel cutting file, the present is from the Tis the Season cutting file and the balloons from Clownin Around!  Had a fun time creating this card!

 In this picture you can see how I used pop dots to add some dimension to the card!
