This is using coordinating paper and the Cuttlebug dandylion diecut to make the flower. There was actually enough to make 2 pages....I put one in our basket for sale but you could easily make a 2 page layout and very quickly. Everyone gets short on time but if you keep things simple....you can still create and still make pretty pages you can will enjoy for years to come.
Supplies: Scribble Scrabble papers, Cuttlebug lower die, button, Fiskars border punch, string, CS.

Todays blog post is using a Magnolia stamp. I had done this card for my last Copic 101 class. If you are not sure about investing in copics.....look at the shading on the hair...you simply can not do that with any other marker. We love the Copics at Picture This.

Goodmorning!! It is freezing in Wisconsin this morning!!!!! For todays card I used the stick heart wreath and just let my Cuttlebug and Nesties do all the work. I inked the edges with a matching burgudy and added a black gem to keep with the color theme. On the inside a MS heart border punch was used.
We hope you all were inspired this week by one or many of our ideas. I spoke to Terri at the "Judith" office today and they are releasing 100 NEW stamps!!!! The new catalog goes to print here soon. She literally just got the proof on her desk today. So that is exciting. We will keep you informed.
Be sure to leave a comment on any of our blogs this week and we will announce the lucky winner of some goodies on Monday.

I used several stamps on this card and I have used these same stamps on many other cards in many different ways before. On the front I distressed the edges to give it more of a weathered look and all I had was a silver swirl and that didn't really match so I pushed it into my yellow and then black Staz On ink pads to tone it down some. If I had more time..then I'd have heat embossed it a copper. On the inside I have the Dorky bird peeking out of a basket.
Supplies: Judith stamps, ribbon, Copic markers, Momento Ink, CS, Fiskars border punch and Paper Loft paper. Now hop on over to the other gals blogs for more inspiration!! And don't forget to leave a comment.

You can do the same at home. Go through your stash of papers and if there are some that go with nothing else..then pull them out and create a page. Sometimes you just have to challenge yourself to do it. You'll see how easy it is and you will feel good knowing you are using what you already have on hand.
I created a miter frame by cutting from corner to corner and then inked where the miters came together. The photo doesn't do it justice but it looks like a frame.
Supplies: Best Creations, Metallic CS, Embossing folder, brad

And here the another page made out of same sticker sheet for a Page Kit. Both kits hit the floor today. Everything is precut for you so you just assemble. They both are limited edition since I used the last of the sticker sheets and each kit includes the entire sheet. So you can buy one kit and you already have the idea for the other page to utilize all of your stickers. There will also be some left for you to create a third page.
Supplies: Bo Bunny sticker sheet, Reminisce and Moxxie papers, CS and TPC Studio gear embellie.
