                                    A pretty little page using a bunch of different elements.
                                Cheery Lynn dies were used to cut the flowers, banners and doilies.

Home for the Holidays

 Some pages for sale hitting the floor today. I used the CL poinsettia die to create the flowers.

Saturday, December 5, 2015


 We had some family sticker sheets that needed to go so I made up a page and then kitted the rest.
12/6/15 Kits are now sold out.

I used the CL small tea rose die for the flowers. I love making my own flowers!

With Sympathy

Here is a matching card to yesterdays pages. I always tell people to get in the habit of doing a card right away when you finish a page. You already have everything color coordinated and it uses up your leftovers. And we always need cards!!

Fall Flurry

 This is a class I taught yesterday. I love the colors. Of course the photos don't do the paper justice. The new Sizzix Fall Medley dies were used.
 The Coredinations crackle cardstock added a little to the pages as well. It's all in the details ladies.

Threw a couple acorn dies in there as well. Be sure to check out the upcoming classes. In January I am doing a series of 2 page layouts with matching card.

Let it Snow

This was a popular card this fall. I made it for our Christmas Extravaganza and then it is part of our Monthly Make-n-Take Club here. The pretty snowflakes are dies by IO. The sentiment is               Die-versions.

Cats leave pawprints on your heart

 This page started out as a class but once I got it all made and went to pull the papers for class....they were almost sold out. So that put a kaboosh to that.
 The handmade flowers are from the CL daisy die.
The 'Cats Leave....' diecut title is made and sold at Picture This. We make over 1000 different titles for your projects so be sure to check them out the next time you are at the store.

Birthday Wishes

 A pretty card from one of my classes this month. I love the simplicity of it. I inked the center of the flowers with a matching die. All the 'stitched' dies are becoming very popular right now. I like the look of them as well.

Curved Merry Christmas

Final card from the red glitter class. Some of these cards will be available in our upcoming Buffet in December. The Cheery Lynn banner die was using for the sentiment.

Same design #2

Same design as yesterdays but using an alternative paper. Both are very striking.

Red Glitter Merry Christmas

Using the Spellbinders Curved die...this made for a very pretty card. The poinsettias are made using white metallic papers to carry the shimmer throughout the entire card.

Festive Season #2

The red glitter paper from class was getting very low so I made alternative cards using the same design but another pretty paper.

Festive Season

 I did a glittery class a couple weeks ago so I will share those cards over the next few days. It was a popular class...the first sold out so I had to add another.
I inked the center of the poinsettia for a little extra detail.

Little Girls

 Someone requested vintage page ideas so this paper inspired me for this project. I added a vellum quotes and some flowers.
the mauve petals are from the Rose Creation die and the twigs are a die as well. The tiny rose buds are from Kaiser Krafts. I added a touch of glitter for just that little extra sparkle.

Sweet Baby

 I had this poor lonely round sticker left from a previous project so I just grabbed a baby themed paper to whip up a quick page for sale.
The photo matting was embossed with a flower embossing folder. Easy peasy...nothing special on this page....not even a hand made flower.

Sweet Mya

 I had my great nieces 1st birthday party to go to so I made a page for her scrapbook and then found a cute fluffy stuffed animal.
 The bear diecut is something we make at Picture This and I just customized it with her name,
The flowers are made from a Rose Creations die by Spellbinders. I just scrunched them up and added a brad.

Last card from my past mono chromatic class. I have always loved white on white. The butterfly die is a MB and the flowers are......of course...Cheery Lynn.  I use a stylus to cup them for more dimension. The cute little centers are a Tiny Flower Kit die set by Cheery Lynn as well. It's my go-to company when I want to create flowers.

White dragonfly card

 This is a card from a past class I taught and just now getting around to getting it on the blog. A lot of our creations do not make it to the blogs.....just gives you more reason to come see our thousands of sample at Picture This.
I used Glossy Accents to create the dew drops on the flowers. The flowers are hand crafted using the Build A Flower dies by Cheery Lynn.

 I love the simple elegance of this card. The patterned paper is actually the backside of a Halloween paper. So don't forget to look at the backs of your stash for inspiration as well.
I used the Black Eyed Susan die for the flower center. And a stacker flower die for the flower.  The leaves are a MFT die.

Apple time

 Since everyone will be doing their photos of taking kids to all of our area apple orchards.....thought I'd get a quick sample done.
 I double layered my doily. The doily is a Cheery Lynn die. I tend to use them a lot! Just added a simple twine bow.
 I used the ECD ladybug dies and added them to the page. When I am trying to pick my apples at home the darn Asian beetles are dive bombing me and biting so it gave me the idea to add these dies to the page. I used a journaling pen to do the little dot trails.
                                The twine was added to one of the pages on the photo matting.

Rustic Elegance

                                    More pages for sale. I was on a roll Saturday at the store.
                          Showing how I cut the banner out of the matting piece.  For everyone who says scrapping is expensive.....not if you don't want it to be.
                           Some diecut flowers and some store bought flowers mixed together.
                                      Added a sticker to a doily diecut and pop dotted the doily.
Same paper.....just another version. I gave one of my staff the same sheet to also make a page and I will feature them on our facebook page showing how the same paper can look so different. So be sure to watch FB for that.

Spread your wings

 More pages for sale. It posted double photos and I can't figure out how to delete the 2nd. Hate computers. 
This paper had the dogwoods on it so I made some dogwood flowers as well to highlight what was already there. I inked the centers with matching ink. And added another vellum quote. Poof! A page.
A lot of times the backside of the pattern papers match what is on the front so it makes it easy for newbies to coordinate their pages. I used the lined backside for the photo mount area.
