Happy Flower Thank You...

HAPPY EASTER everyone!!! I'm looking forward to celebrating this Resurrection Sunday with my family!

It's my day to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Blog and I wanted to do a card this time...and I'm gonna make myself mail it off this week!

I used the A2 Card Bases and the Happy Flower file that was added to the shop a couple of weeks ago! The paper is one of my favorite retired CTMH collections, Bella!

Speaking of STAMPS...this month is STAMPAGANZA at CTMH! This means that when you purchase 2 Stamp Sets, you can get a 3rd FREE!!!

To celebrate this special, a couple of my CTMH girls have gotten together and created a tiny hop to showcase some of our favorite stamp sets...maybe you'll fall in love with the ones we used and buy your own!

I hope your visiting me by way of the very funny & talented Cathy Bufano!!! If not, don't can start here and go back around!

I've chosen 2 stamp sets to create with...2 of my FAVORITE...and 2 that you could easily purchase then get one FREE! My FAVE stamps are INKBLOTBLOCK UPPERCASE! As you will see, both of these stamp sets are very versatile...I used them with three different paper lines from CTMH...

Here are the two stamp sets used with Urban...

If you end up buying this file, here's the link to my Cricut Design Space file...fits a tube with an approximate 1.25" diameter.

I hope you'll take time to go check out our Spring Break Blog Hop & Monthly Challenge and link up...this project I did here is "Springy" and could easily fall within the Challenge category!

CTMH Paper Blog Hop - Penelope...

Thanks for joining me for this month's Paper Focus Blog Hop featuring PENELOPE!!!

If you've come from Melissa's Blog, you're in the right place...only a few of us showcasing this ADORABLE paper this month so it shouldn't take you long!

Here's a simple standard-size card with a different kind of fold. Card base is 5.5 x 8.5 - scored at 2.25 from each side so when folded you get pretty close to the 5.5 x 4.25 size card. Here's a look!

I adhered one of the larger PML cards to only the left flap

I used the March STOM, Sunshine Birdies, and some White & Gold Ribbon...
Here's a look at the inside of the card...I used the B&T as my card base so the inside of the card is just as colorful!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your next stop is Aggie's Blog...head on over and see what she's created!

Don't forget to visit all 3 of our blogs for a lot of inspiration!

It's Your Day with Let's Scrap...

February is OVER and March 1st means a NEW DESIGN TEAM term for Let's Scrap Sketches!!!

I'm pleased to announce that I've committed to another term and I CANNOT WAIT to share my layouts with you for another six months!

Here's a look at this week's layout I made using the CTMH Charlotte Collection...

Here are some closeups of all the little details and the FABULOUS B&T paper.

Touches of Gold Sequins and Gold Treasured Puffies make the layout, I think...

I used the CTMH Artistry Cricut Collection to cut these arrow circles...
I love the faux washi that comes with the Charlotte Compliments...

I hope you'll take the time to head on over to the Let's Scrap Blog and check out what the other DT Members did with the sketch!

Kaleidoscope Trio with Feeling Sketchy...

It's time for another Feeling Sketchy card...this time using a elongated card with three focal points!

As you can see by the other DT Members, this sketch is very versatile and can be used for just about any occasion!

I hope you'll play along with could win some goodies from our sponsor!

Here's a look at the sketch...
