Summer Garden Card

Blue skies and bright flowers… (DCWV Summer Garden 6x12 stack, Imaginisce hot rocks)
Hello my fabulous friends!

Who's ready for some blue skies and bright flowers?  I know I am!

So...

I'm totally LOVING the bright, happy colors and bold designs of DCWV Summer Garden Stack! And the 6x12 size is great for cards, die cutting, and borders on scrapbook pages! (and it is double sided! BONUS!)

These fabulous little gems are hot rocks from imaginisce.  They are hot fix, so when you heat them with the i.rock heat tool, the glue melts, and permanently sticks them to paper OR fabric!  How fun, huh! 

*note to self... must find some clothes or furniture to gem-ify!  Maybe my niece will let me sparkle up one (or more) of her shirts....*


A little floating magic going on here. I cut apart the top flap of the card and inserted a strip of clear plastic. This made a nice little window.  "Thanks" is actually stamped inside the card. This is just a fun way to change things up a bit. The thin strips of contrasting paper not only act as a fun edging, they also hide the glue lines. 


This fun flower was made using Spellbinder's "Rose Creations" die. I die cut layers of fabric, netting, and DCWV Summer Garden paper and did a bunch of stacking for a flower 'blooming' with texture.  I love that the paper is double sided, so when it folds over, a coordinating design shows. Fabulous!

Enjoy!

Supplies Used:
Paper: DCWV Supper Garden 6x12 stack, white card stock
Ink: Distress ink, VersaMark
Stamp: My Mind's Eye "Tickled Pink"
Die: Spellbinders "Rose Creation"
Other: fabric, brad, Imaginisce hot rocks, clear plastic

DCWV Kidosaurus Paper Stack

  Isn't this the cutest little boy paper?! I saw these papers from the Die Cuts With A View Kidosaurus paper stack and I just LOVED them. So many cute ideas for pages and projects popped to mind. I wanted to play so I picked a picture of my little cutie and went to work.

 I started with the volcano paper as background and added the leaf/footprint paper to it, but wanted something a little darker and messier so I misted it with some brown spray. Then I got to cutting up the journaling, titles and die-cut blocks from another sheet.
 
I fussy cut the footprints out to use individually and then traced and hand colored a few to go along with them. 
I added my son's name to the front of the title block with .....asaurus on it. I thought that was really cute and clever! I had done a lot of inking, distressing, added this wander embellie, doodled my border and thought I was done, but I just wasn't feeling it. So I walked away for a bit and then came back. That's when it hit me!
 These glam rocks from Imaginisce. I just picked them up from the Original Scrapbook Expo and they were the perfect finishing touch. I added some black ones around the elements at the bottom of the layout and then the red ones in the smoke billowing out of the volcano under my layers. I love the way it turned out!
  Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)Ange

Summer's Comin' Check out Imaginisce's new Collection

Hello and good morning..

It's Wendi here and I'm sharing a fun page that I created using the Imaginisce Childhood Memories line. This line is super playful and energetic, and full of wonderful, bright colors.

For my page I choose a photo of my son at the splash park a few summers back, and bounced the bright colors off his swimsuit and highlighted them with the playful colors from the Imaginisce papers.
I just adored these fun "photo" accents from the Snapshot paper and decided to fussy cut some out and them add them to the layout as embellishments.

The ABC alpha stickers were wonderful, since there were several colors and fonts to pick from, so I mixed and matched.
I also added a bit of misting to emphasize the water effect.

Make sure to check out Imaginisce and see what wonderful new products they have to play with.

Have a wonderful day

Huntsman Cancer Institute Donation

I will be delivering our donation to Huntsman Cancer Institute this week and boy, it is SUPER exciting!! Their biggest needs right now are journals, blankets and of course they are always looking for hats. Our donation of collected items from the March show includes:

*71 Journals

*19 hats

*55 Blankets

blanket

Each time a patient begins the chemo/radiation process they receive a blanket and a journal for documenting their journey. What great gifts future patients will receive!!

Every one of the blankets are absolutely beautiful. Here is just a little sample of what was donated. I do believe Scrapbooker’s are the most creative people around (I am not biased or anything, lol). I have 4 boxes of blankets and I know they are going to be LOVED!

The journals are composition notebooks covered with paper and embellishments. Every one of them is absolutely darling. We got a great variety so that is fantastic! There is something for every age group as well as for boys and girls. Composition notebooks go on sale every July and August for SO cheap so watch for the sales so we can get a jump start on projects for the next show.
