I apologize for the quality of the pictures. Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my Dad. I got my inspiration from a stamp made by Prima, which basically looks like a musical score. To make the shape card I took an image of a stamp, from B is for Boy, and welded two together to create a standard A2 size card. The top note shape is from Storybook. I made one top note slightly larger to use as a shadow. The music notes, aren't they cool!, are from Gypsy Wanderings.
Sentiment Stamps and Twine-Papertrey Ink
Kraft and White CS-Bazzil
Blue and Green PP-Heidi Grace ( they have a light damask print)
Background PP-Me & My Big Ideas
Sakura Black Gelly Roll Pen
I didn't use any MME paper on this card at all, crazy huh?! Well, a girl needs to expand her horizons every once in a while.
Thanks for stopping by!

Today I want to share a LO with you I made for my little girl. Generally I do 2 page layouts, and rarely are my pages so girly, but I had fun designing this page.I thought this page needed lots of bling, so I made my own "sugared" brads. I applied liquid glue to the top of the brads and dipped them in some Doodlebug glitter. I'm pretty pleased with how well they turned out. Who knew I could be thrifty?! Don't tell anyone! I also took a white Prima flower (Trellis Rose) and used Glimmer Mist (Tattered Rose) to pick up the darker pink accents in the paper. The blingy, I don't think that's really a word, flower stem is also from Prima. The background paper has a really nice scalloped border and I knew I wanted to add ribbon, but I didn't want it to cover the edges. So I used my craft knife to make 2 slits at both the top and bottom of the page and inserted the ribbon. Then I adhered the ribbon with tape to the back of the cardstock. I don't know how well you can see it in the pictures, but I embossed my photo mat with the Linen Texture Plate from Papertrey Ink.
And here's my girl...

CS, Ribbon (Velvet)-Papertrey Ink
Bling and Flower-Prima
Basic Grey brads
StampinUp! corner rounder
The scalloped oval is cut from a Cricut cartridge, the bad news is I can't remember which one, because apparently I didn't save it on my Gypsy...oops. But there are several cartridges that have similar shapes. I chose one I liked and used my Gypsy to stretch it so my photo mat could fit inside.
This was a pretty quick LO. I was excited to try some new techniques and will definitely be incorporating those in future projects. Thanks for stopping by!

Good evening. I have to say, I'm glad this week is coming to an end. These are not the best pictures I've taken, so I apologize, but I'm too tired to take more. I think the LO turned out pretty cute, so I hope you guys like it. I designed this LO for some pictures I took of my family at the park.
PP-My Mind's Eye
Papertrey Ink, Zig brown pen, Sakura whilte gelly roll pen, Peachy Keen stamps (everyday character face asst. for the squirrel)
I cut the squirrel, tree, grass and flowers from Create a Critter. The journaling square was part of the MME paper collection.
I'd love to hear what you guys think! Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!

PP-My Mind's Eye
Ribbon, Stamp and Ink-Papertrey Ink
Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls Embossing Folder
StampinUp! Ink on the clouds
The button is from my stash. I also used Glossy Accents on the princess' eyes as well as the button.
The fence, which is also from the MM cartridge is incredibly intricate, but cut out amazingly well on the PTI cardstock. I did use the multi-cut feature, and it came right off my mat with hardly any weeding necessary...it's also a pretty new mat which helps. The grass is from the Gyspy Wandering cartridge.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and funky card. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think! Have a great weekend!
