This is another Dream Pop card. The hello sentiment is stamped in Honey ink. It's from the Cricut Artiste collection. The diamond shapes are from Art Philosophy.

These are the Buzz and Bumble pages we made at Club. We sponged the edge of just about every piece of paper with Cocoa ink. The Wheel and "flags" are all stamped with the "Wheel of Life" set. I used a retired alphabet for my title. (I know. A no-no) I mounted my wheel on one of the spinners but most of the ladies popped theirs up with foam tape and cut out the polka dot arrow in the set, then attached the arrow with a brad. The "Easter" title is stamped with the Trinity alphabet.

This one is a personal favorite. It didn't start off as a Mother's Day card but when I started cutting out the elephant to say "Hello" I noticed the gradual sizes and it just seemed perfect. This is Dream Pop again. It is so versatile, Girls! The sentiment is cut at 1 1/4 inch on Artiste.

I made this page using Dream Pop and Juniper paper. I used an old stamp set and the Arbor Wooden Shapes to accent. There are also blue sparkles and liquorice Opaques to bling things out. There is matching Mint colored card stock with the Dream Pop set but I liked the subdued Juniper color with it too. I also added a bit more sparkle to the plane with Stardust Glitter Gel.

These are the card designs for the Card Party on April 27th hosted by Sandy Panipinto. You can make both of these versatile designs for almost any occasion. I've stamped Happy Mother's Day and Happy Father's Day but I'll have many other sentiments available so you can easily turn the card into what you need it to be. Plus, you can make as many of each design as you need so you can leave with a stash of cards for almost any upcoming occasion! You just need to R.S.V.P. to me or Sandy and give me a number of how many cards you want to make for $2 each. I hope you'll come and see the Dream Pop paper that's available to order in May as well. Any orders taken on the 27th will go in May 1st so you can participate in Dream Pop and the May Stamp of the Month. Scroll down to get a look at a teaser of the Dream Pop paper and visit my CTMH website to see the Stamp of the Month.

This is the layout the Girls Scrapbook Club made last Saturday. It uses Claire paper and the Girls Rock stamp set. The girls are always so creative. Rarely do their layouts end up looking like the example. I think it's great that they are getting creative and expressing themselves in their own unique way. Personally, this is one of my recent favorites. The colors are fairly neutral and there's lots of room to fill it with pictures.
This layout design was inspired by one I saw in the March/April Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Project Inspirations: Fabulous Fabric

Dream Pop is here! This is the exclusive paper that will be offered during the May Constant Campaign. The kit includes 12 B&T patterned pages and 12 sheets of glossy, embossed cardstock. All of the colors and designs are only available during the month of May in this kit. You can see how versatile and gorgeous it is just in the examples I've shown here. I'm sure you'll want to start planning that may order so you'll qualify to buy this kit for just $10 when you spend $35.
I have to say I covered the faces of "The Kiddos" because they're not my kiddos. :) I'm blessed to be nanny to these precious children a few times a week. I assure you they are all beautiful!

These cards were made using the April Stamp of the Month. The yellow one with the sun was inspired by Krista Hershberger, CTMH Consultant. The others are my originals. The top card uses Surf's Up paper and Yoyo embellishment. The sentiment is from the Patterned Pennants Stamp Set. The middle card uses Chantilly paper on Twilight cardstock. All the shapes were cut with Cricut Artiste.
