Pretty Little Studio - Shine Bright!

I'm so excited! I just got the Pretty Little Studio Shine Bright collection in my hot little hands! This collection has such a romantic feel to it.. soft pastels, and dramatic navy. The soft watercolor flowers are absolutely dreamy, and all the perfectly coordinated accents are a pleasure to play with! 
I topped the background papers with a printed journaling card from the Happy Day pack that contains 8 different cards.
The sentiment is from a clear sticker sheet called Be Happy Words. Because the stickers are clear you can layer them over pattern paper or die cuts without covering up anything!
The Simply Floral die cut flowers are absolutely dreamy! I attached them with adhesive foam tape to add dimension. I tucked the die cut tassel ends under the raised flowers so they look like they are hanging from the floral arrangement. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of shiny sequins ( Raindrop Blue - transparent, Dreamy Blue - iridescent).
You'll love this new must have collection!

Tag You're It - Lucky Friend

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! I have a little time to make today so I thought I'd play along at Tag You're It. The design team takes turns posting alternating challenges. It's not my turn to post, but I love the challenge and always hope we can find more players to join us.

Here's the challenge this time! Let this pretty yellow polka dot dress inspire you! 
My mind was captivated by the yellow dots and how to incorporate them into my design. I reached for the Reverse Confetti Topped Off Tag topped with the Dots Tag layer. 
To keep it feminine I added a pretty hand written font sent sentiment from Sentimental Gems and some roses from the Floral Gem stamp set. 
The sentiment tags are stacked a pierced circle from Detailed Circles stamped with a sentiment and layered over a Circles 'n Scallops scalloped circle. The little button and clear sequins repeat the circle/polka dot theme. 
Tags are fun little creations that are quick and easy to make. I hope you'll join me at the Tag You're It Challenge. I'd love to see how that pretty dress inspires you!

Simple Stories Springtime Collection

Oh Happy Day! The sun is shining and spring is on it’s way! The Simple Stories Springtime Collection is just the thing to get you in the mood to celebrate!
I love the Simple Stories Collection Kits. They’re a great investment because they’re reasonably priced and you can make so much with everything that’s included.  All these cards were made with a $8 collection kit (you can find it for $7 at Scrapbook.com
The kit includes sheets of 3x4” journaling cards that make great focal points for your cards. Since there are two sheets you can make LOTS of cards. I like to cut the duplicate card – fussy cutting images and layering them over the original to add dimension.
The sticker sheets are perfect for embellishing. I use my embossing buddy to powder the backs so they’re not sticky. I add dimension by adhering them with adhesive foam stickers.
And the papers are perfectly coordinated to mix and match. There are five different patterns in the collection kit. The sheets are 12 x 12” so there’s lots to play with. 
There’s a little something here for everyone on your list!
Spread the sunshine with the Simple Stories Springtime Collection. Your friends and family will be glad you did!
