Thinking of You Card

I've got another sweet April Stamp of the Month card to share with you today, Stampin' Friends!
Last time I went bright and cheerful with these stamps, but this time I hit my Hello Lovely papers for a dreamy, whimsical take on this set. I though it was fun to have the hearts floating out of the bird like musical notes. That mini floral on the edges is from the Hello Lovely Zip Strips - wish I had a whole sheet of that!
I paper pieced this bird by stamping it multiple times in different inks - Sorbet, Sea Glass, New England Ivy, and Whisper. then I fussy cut the various layers and glued her back together. I added a little oomph to her lashes with my journaling pen. I'm linking this project up to the Heart 2 Heart Whimsical Challenge.

Live Beautifully in May

Our National Scrapbooking Day crop is coming May 6th, and I cannot wait to scrap with my local Stampin' Friends that day!
This is one of 5 beautiful layouts from the Live Beautifully Scrapbooking Workshop we will be doing that day.  I especially love all the gold foil embossed roses on the background.

You're the Sweetest Card

Yesterday I sat down to play with the new sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. That made for a really fun morning!
I had hoped to link this card up to the Color Throwdown, but I forgot to get it blogged in time since I rushed off to fit in Costco before the repairman showed up. It was that color combo that inspired me to break out some of my new AdornIt papers, combining a little Blender Basics with the Flamingo papers. I used my Basic Heart Thin Cuts to cut out that sweet pineapple heart I layered over a mini doily. I added the little hearts to the Polka Dot paper using Blossom ink.
How sweet are these little love birds from the April Stamp of the Month? I stamped them with Canary ink on White Daisy cardstock and then layered them onto my pineapple heart. I snagged the sweetest sentiment from the Sugar Rush - Cardmaking set. I finished off the card with some organdy ribbon tied with a baker's twine bow. Hope you'll hop over to Atlantic Hearts to add a little sweetness of your own this week, Stampin' Friends!

Live Beautifully Workshop Coming in May!

Did you know that May is National Scrapbooking Month? I'm super excited this year, in part because I'll be hosting a crop on May 6th with my local Crafty Peeps, and in part because we will be making up this stunning Live Beautifully 10 page Scrapbooking Workshop!
Below is my favorite of the gorgeous 5 double page layouts included - each kit includes preprinted bases, precut papers, diecuts, and stickers with gold foil accents. I whipped up this special kit today, adding just a few extra goodies, like a bit of washi tape, Gold Glitter Gems, and adorably teensy gold sequins. I can't wait to get my pics onto these beautiful layouts!

If you are interested in creating this amazing kit in May, I've got the full pages (with my twist on the basic kit) loaded to my VIP Monthly Memories Facebook Group. Let me know if you'd like to join! That's where I share all my upcoming classes and organize our twice monthly crop days. I offer both in person and To- Go kits shipped right to your home. Contact me if you have any questions or want to reserve your kit!

Monthly Memories Sugar Rush Layouts

Do you ever feel like you are so far behind you cannot even begin to find your to-do list? I feel like it's been ages since I've created a Monthly Memories Kit on time, and this kit is probably still too late for this idea book cycle. The new idea book goes live in just a couple of weeks (yay!). However...this Sugar Rush paper is seriously too cute to skip over. 
The ice cream and donuts theme is completely adorable, even though we are gluten free so therefore donuts and cones are not normally on the menu for my kiddos. It's such a big deal to find those items gluten free that I do actually have donut and cone pics of them to add! 
The gold accents are so trendy and sweet!
I think the Complement titles are perfectly sized. These Complements come with both sticker and chipboard pieces. 
You can find the "Bring List" for this kit HERE. Sadly I believe the I Want It All kit may be Sold Out now, but the papers, complements, and washi are still available. If you love this kit as much as I do, don't wait. It's breaking my heart to know that it will be completely gone so soon. I am working on my next kit already, though, and the creative process feels amazing. I'll share it with you soon, Stampin' Friends. Thanks for still being here. XOXO!
