Celebrate Your Special Day

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great weekend. Last Saturday DH and I packed up the dog and went for a picnic lunch.. some tuna salad on butter crust buns, fresh fruit cups and some apple turnovers. I wonder what this weekend will bring and I hope you have some fun planned too!
Today I'm playing along with Cardz 4 Galz where this time they're looking for Autumn/Fall Leaves. I love this time of year and spending time outdoors. The air is a little crisper making it easier to walk a way without feeling drained. The colorful leaves are just as beautiful as flowers!

My card starts with a Wood Grain print stamped in brown ink on kraft paper. I framed the panel with a Rectangle Frame that comes from a nested set - this 4x6" being the largest.
Waffle Flower Two Step Leaves are easy to stamp. I recommend running an eraser over the solid stamps before inking for the first time. This helps the ink stay put. I love the different shaped leaves that create lots of interest in different colors.

The Essential Celebrations stamp set has lots of sentiments to choose from. The mixed font is eye catching and I love that there is a matching die set so no fussy cutting required.
I hope you have a great weekend with time to do what you love best!

This card starts out with a snowscape made with some border Stacked Edges 1 die cuts to create some snowy hills. Along the top of the card stock card I stamped a sentiment from the SKIIING BEAR and some colorful snowflakes.
I fussy cut all the images but there is a coordinating die set available that matches this set. I adhered images with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension and a sprinkle of jewels to add some sparkle and shine.

My Creative Scrapbook September Kit


Are you looking for a nice way to treat yourself? How about trying a subscription to the My Creative Scrapbook Main Kit of the Month? They select the pattern paper and lots of coordinating supplies and deliver it straight to your front door so all you have to focus on is MAKING! Every month they have several kits to choose from.. their Main Kit, LE - Limited Edition, Creative Kit and Album Kit - so you can choose what's right for you!


Here's a peek at the September Kit! It's got pretty papers from Paige Evans Bungalow Lane Collection, die cut printed images, foam stickers, chipboard and lots more!! This collection captures the simple pleasures - enjoying your time and making your house a home.

I love to sort through the different pieces - I sort out the stickers, and die cuts by category to help coordinate my cards - just as an example.. the fall leaves with the Thankful Sentiment.

Scenes are always fun to make to- This kit has some cute critters that you won't want to ignore. This dog sure looks like my girl Miss Moriko - she's an Akita.

And this card is a perfect day in the park for my fur baby. Some scissor cut waves become hills and a few trees for a shady spot to relax. In the park just as "Happy as can be" - the perfect sentiment for this one!

You'll love the gold accents. Who needs sequins when you have these gold foil buttons to brighten things up.

This kit came with a big 12" chipboard sticker sheet that was full of possibilities. I love the frames perfect for making shakers, framing photos, or setting scenes. This one looks great topped with a foil sentiment.

Whenever I spot a bird in a kit I have to use it. I love watching them and I love them on my cards. This one sitting on stack of books is so sweet. I layered everything on a journaling card. If you look close maybe you'll notice I adhered it up side down. I had to get those florals on my card!
One of the best perks of this club kit is the ideas you'll get for making with your kit. My Creative Scrapbook has a complete design team with varied styles to inspire you. If you're looking for ideas after you receive the kit.. there's an entire gallery of project ideas on the My Creative Scrapbook website so you'll always be inspired! I made EIGHT cards with this kit and you'll find the projects posted in their gallery!
