Winter Layouts

Well, I do know it's summer (it was even 90 degrees today!), but I have a couple of winter layouts to share.


I've been busy trying to get through a bunch of photos and use some of my favorite paper that I've stocked up on.


I think I'm now officially out of Pebbles Inc Winter Wonderland paper, and I'm still in love with the clean lines and bright, modern feel of this collection.


Since I'm using up the last of my papers in this collection, I used a lot of small layers. These were pieces left over from other layouts. Even the "snow" cut outs above were extras from these layouts I shared back in May.


These winter layouts are a clean and simple, but I'm pretty happy that I was able to eek out a few more layouts from this fabulous winter collection.

Thanks So Much Card

I recently needed a thank you card. I decided to use a stamp and die set that I've had forever, but just haven't had the chance to use yet.


I used the Hero Arts Thanks Die and Clear Acrylic Stamp Set. The "thanks" die, "so much, you are awesome" stamps, and star stamps are all part of the set. I used a simple oval die to cut a hole in the white card stock to create a bold backdrop for the thanks die cut.


I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio, Blueprint Sketch, and Squeezed Lemonade to stamp my sentiments and stars.


This thanks so much card definitely falls into the clean and simple category. I'm so glad I finally got to use this great stamp and die set.

Hearts Project Pad Layout

I'm having some fun creating with Paper House's Project Pads. You can use them to punch out feathers, butterflies, frames, or hearts. Today, I have a Hearts Project Pad Layout to share with you on this blog and a Frames Project Pad home decor piece to share with you over on the Paper House Blog.


I used the punch out hearts to create the look of a die cut layout without the work of a die cut layout


It was tricky to show in a photograph, but the gold on the hearts is a lovely matte metallic. Mixed with the aqua blue it's especially pretty. There's more than one size of heart in the paper pad. You can see I used some of the larger ones behind my photo to frame it.



I added in a Kittens Labels sticker from Paper House as well as the Life is Good sticker from the Beach Clear Stickers for some embellishments.




To see what else you can do with Paper House's cool Project Pads, head on over to my post on the Paper House blog today to see what I created with the Frames Project Pad.

Unicorn Birthday Card

My oldest niece just turned 16, so of course I had to make her a card. Here's the unicorn birthday card I made for her.


I started with a file from the Silhouette design store called Cute Unicorn. I sized the file to fit on a card and cut away.


I used some enamel dots for the eyes to give the card a bit of dimension. I added a bit more color to the card with some bright layers and a pink card base. I finished up with a birthday greeting from the SRM Birthday Plans stamp set.


I love that I have nieces to make silly and fun cards like this unicorn birthday card for!
