Last night I was finally able to get into the craft room to make a quick simple page of my DD when she was about 2 months old. I just love pink and purple together and her little jammies were one of my favorite when she was little. I tried to pull in the roses from the boppy pillow by using Stampin' Up DSP Bella Rose.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper - Stampin' Up Bella Rose
Solid Card Stock - Lavender Lace and Pink Piroquette
Cricut Cartridge for Title - Graphically Speaking

Cherries Delight

Hello Scrappers. Today I want to share with you two cards. One I made for my monthly stamp club swap tonight and the other one my DD made while I was making mine. I had to cut out the right size of paper for her, but she put it together and stamped the image herself. The entire time telling me, "Mommy, you have to put mine on your site too". She loves to join me in the craft room so how could I possibly say no. She did a great job. She also made a popsicle card and I'll post that one later on too.

Here is DD's card (She is 6). She used the paper stack from DCWV "Sweet", Ribbon is from Michaels, Solid Card Stock is Stampin' Up. Stamp Set is Stampin' Up "Tart & Tangy" & "Best Yet" for the sentiment, Ink is Stampin' Up Real Red & Certainly Celery.

Here is my card for club swap.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up, except Ribbon
Whisper White Card Stock
Basic Black Card Stock
Rockabilly Designer Series Paper
Kiwi Kiss Card Stock
Ink: Old Olive Marker for dots and Real Red for cherries. Used Staz On Black for the sentiment.
Stamp Sets: Tart & Tangy & Lots of Thoughts
Ribbon: From Michaels $1 bin.

Weekend Layouts

I was able to make 2 layouts this past weekend. I just love 2 page layouts, not sure why. Probably because I take so many pictures that I have a hard time narrowing it down to just a few. I made cards for a upcoming Stampin' Up Club swap also, I'll post those later today.

Solid Cardstock for matting is all from Stampin Up
Title is cut with Cricut Opposites Attract cart
Patterned Papaer is from The Paper Studio

This is my DS's 3rd birthday party. He loves Lightning McQueen so several of his birthdays will be Cars theme.
Patterned Paper is SandyLion
Solid Cardstock is Stampin' Up
Title is cut from Cricut Opposites Attract cart. I just love this cart, it is one of my favorites.
