Helping a 5 yr old

Last week, we unexpectedly changed bus routes; yes, 'tis true after 4 years on the same bus. However, the bus picks up and drops off right in front of the house now...and THAT makes all the change pains worth it! To help Danielle remember all the new details, I whipped up a "calling card" for to refer to in her backpack.

Here is the front...The images are from Hero Arts and were coloured with Copic Markers. There is some Stardust stickles to add a bit of shimmer as well.

Here is the back...The fun chipboard is by Urban Lily, as are the fun pattern papers and the photo card.

And here is a side view...

Happy Spring Everyone!

In honour of spring, I altered a sweet birdhouse using some yummy Urban Lily papers. I rarely alter and I am not sure why because it was super fun! And it was a great project to work on at Crop4Kids.

The butterflies on the birdhouse are coloured with Copic markers; I just thought the bird house needed some sure signs of spring! :-) The butterfly images are by Hero Arts.

Ugh! We have been sick!

I don't know what is going around but there is definitely something...and all 4 of us have it! We have been nauseous, sick to our stomaches and plagued with sinus issues; hence, my blog has been neglected for the past week. I am, back and totally refreshed!!!

Here is my take on the March layout tag at Scrap Shotz. Gosh, it was so fun and I totally have the scrapping bug again! This is a bit simpler than my usual style but I love it...and it's a 2-pager to boot!!!

Supplies:  Bazzill (cardstock); American Crafts (pattern paper); Evalicious (felt circle and quote bubbles); Quickutz (alphas for the title)

Thanks for dropping by!

Spring is in the Air

I would like to share a project I made for Urban Swank and The Inspired Scrapper this month.

After coming back from our Florida vacation, I was feeling blah and needed a pick-me-up! Scrapping this made me feel that spring was imminent! LOL

Here is how I made the layout - Using my EK Success Curvy Circle cutter, I cut out the large inner chartreuse circle. Then I punched several smaller circles with my EK Success circle punch from white cardstock scraps to create the scalloped edge.

Everywhere I look, I see handmade flowers and thought...I should be able to make some and that I did. I dug through the gift wrapping box to find some tissue paper. Again, using my EK Success circle punch, I punch a bunch of circles. I secured the circles iwth a brad and then "fluffed" up the circles, well, basically I scrunched them up. Then I liberally sprayed them with 2 different colours of Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I also dusted the tops of the flowers with some Ranger Glossy Accents and some Pink Paislee Pixie Stix.

Here is the side and aerial view-

The remaining supplies are: Doodlebug alphas; Heidi Swapp chipboard question mark; Zva Creative gem swirls; Hero Arts stamp; Copic markers.

Thanks for letting me share and dropping by!
