April Cards | Cocoa Daisy

I've been missing...
My mojo has been missing...
But I do have a few things to share with you again from the April Cocoa Daisy kit!

So the April kit is totally gorgeous, so to get my mojo flowing again I chose to start with some simple cards.  I am finding making cards is a really quick and easy way to be creative, get the juices flowing, but not have to commit to time in my scrappy room (which I haven't had lately).

This one focused on the fun circles (stamps and chipboard) found in the kit.

This one I started with a tag and layered some pretties to create an embellishment cluster which could have gone on a layout, a PL spread, or a card where I have used it.

You Are... | Bella Blvd

I was challenged to create using the Bella Blvd acrylic words (click here for the acrylic words) and boy was this a fun one!  I paired my words and pictures with the BarnYard collection (click here to get yours) to better tell the story of Moo my son's newest addition to his stuffed animal collection.

I began this story with the words that fit the story I wanted to tell on white cardstock.  Then I added in a few choice diecuts and 4x6 pieces that continued my story and created a scene.  Some black splatters helped to emphasize the cow part of the story.  I chose to use a white border sticker to act as clouds holding up my words, thus anchoring them to the page.  Another border sticker added in the green of the grass and tying the page together from the top to the bottom.  Personally, I am in love with the cute page!  What do you think?

Week 19 | Elle's Studio

It is reveal time at Elle's Studio!  I absolutely love this month's kit, it was right up my alley.
So, what is in the kit this month???  Green, circles, puffy stickers, need I say anymore?
Just click on the pictures below to be taken to the site where for the next 24 hours you can get a discount on the kit and on anything you add to that order...

I began with some Thanksgiving/Christmas pictures, and it worked so well.  I emphasized the green capturing the outdoor feel and the Christmas theme of the page.  Using the circles as a repeating element I drew all the elements together into a cohesive page that I love...

Shaker Cards | Jillibean Soup

I have enjoyed playing with the Jillibean Soup shaker cards (see all the options here), 
they can be dressed up in so many different ways!

This was the star insert with a stamp to make the trail of stars and some added Sparkle.

I thought this was such a smart card, I was so proud of my wittiness here, lol!  This was the square insert card with some pieces from the Farmhouse Stew collection.
