My layout was created using the 3 Birds on a Parade cartridge for the title and Campin' Critters for all of the other die cuts.
The grass was cut from the Fiskars Grass punch and adhered along the bottom edge of the layout.
The marshmallows were created by cutting a square and using a corner rounder on the four corners.  I stamped them with Peachy Keen Face stamps, inked the edges and added a Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine bow.
The s'more was debossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The sentiment is from "The Great Outdoors" stamp set.
This fun little scene was the highlight of my layout, I just love the critters roasting their marshmallows over the open fire.

Scrappy Moms Stamps Guest Designer

Hello, I am honored to be joining Scrappy Moms Stamps as a guest designer this month!  I want to thank them for letting me be part of the August stamp release!  The two new stamp sets being released are so fun and versatile!
The first set is "What Can I Say?" This set contains lots of fun sentiments for a variety of occasions. You will see lots of creative projects from the DT and few on my blog too!
The second set is "Filled with Love" and this set is definitely all about those fun treats.  This stamp set will be perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

Today I used the "What Can I Say?" stamp set for my treat jar.  I found this cute little mason jar with a handle at the dollar store.
I wrapped the center of the jar with some glitter paper and used a punch on the edge.  Next I layered a scalloped circle and added a cupcake from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  A few sequins were added to the cupcake frosting and I embossed the bottom with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I made a coordinating piece for the top of the jar.  A cupcake liner was used underneath the lid as an embellishment.  To finish off my project I attached a wooden spoon from Annie's Paper Boutique, tied it with Totally Blue Trendy Twine and stamped it with a sentiment from the new "What Can I Say?" stamp set.
Don't forget to pop over to the Scrappy Moms blog for more inspiration with the new stamp release! Also, remember to come back over the next week for a few more projects with each of the stamp sets! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Who Loves You? Card

This sweet card was created using the Hoot n Holler cricut cartridge.  I created a little scene by using the Fiskars grass punch and the Martha Stewart Fence punch to create a border along the bottom of my card.
A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Crazy for You stamp set was added on a hand cut flag.  My card was finished off with a Cranberry Trendy Twine bow.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello, it's my day over at Trendy Twine and I have a back to school themed layout to share.  I only have a sneak peek of my project so hop over to Trendy Twine for all of the pictures.  All of the die cuts came from the Locker Talk cartridge.  I popped up the die cuts on foam dots and used some ink for added dimension.  I used three Trendy Twine colors:  In the Navy, Lemon Tart and Cranberry.  These are the perfect colors for those back to school projects.
The finishing touch on my project was a cute little paper clip with all three of the twine colors tied at the top.  Make sure to stop by the store to check out these fun twine colors and lots of other crafty products!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello there today is my design day over at Trendy Twine and I have some fun back to school treat bags to share.  All of the products used to create these fun bags came from Annie's Paper Boutique.  To create my project, I started with the Tiny Kraft Bags and attached some school themed paper to the front of the bag.  I double wrapped some coordinating Cranberry Trendy Twine and tied a small bow.
I used the clear Medium Candy Bags for the pencils.  A set of 5 pencils fit perfectly in each bag.  Next I added the Metal Rim Tags with In the Navy twine.  The "Just For You" seals were added to each of the metal tags.
All of these amazing products are available in the store along with many more, stop by to check it out.  Have a great day!

Story Time Layout

Today I have a simple layout to share which was created with the We R Memory Keepers Storytime kit.  I love these 12x12 pages which look like an open fairytale book.
Since the scrapbook pages are detailed I kept the layout simple and added a couple of photo mats embellished with Orange Truffle Trendy Twine.
The tiny fairytale books and word bubbles are also from the kit and were popped up on foam dots for added dimension.
The pumpkin tag was added to the top of the page to look like a bookmark.  A tiny bit of twine was wrapped around the tag.
For a pop of color, I adhered some paper flowers with bling centers around the edges of the photo mats.
The large "story time" ticket was the perfect title for my layout.  I can't wait to add some pictures of my kids and niece reading together.
