A Perfect Day Level 1 Kit

I never do level 1 kit's but today I tried it, and it only took me 20 minutes. The only extra I added was a little piece of ribbon.

Simple Pleasures Layout

A simple layout I made for a mother's day gift for my mom. These pictures are of my grandparents wedding day. The title was cut from the Storybook Cricut Cartridge. I also used a CTMH foundry bookplate, and I liquid glassed the numbers.

Redo of yesterdays card

4/18 Grin n' Bear It

Okay I stayed up late making this last night, it was in my head and would not go away. So we have more CTMH summer idea book sneek peaks, I used Back Country paper and the Beary Best Stamp set which I am 100% in Love with. Please excuse the fact that my sentiment is crooked, oh I was so mad but it was almost midnight and I did not want to start over with my coloring. I will have to redo it though because it will drive me nuts if I don't. I colored with my Prisma Color pencils and Gamsol.

Dress Card

Well this is my first attempt at this kind of card, I think I need to try some more. I used Basic Grey paper, ribbon, Prima flower, gelly gems, and I just hand cut the paper for the pocket and did some faux stitching. The bottom I stamped with the CTMH Boutique Borders stamp in blush.

Mother's Day Medallion

Okay so I saw a really pretty card on SCS using this same Bittersweet paper from Basic Grey and a medallion with pearls on it, so I was inspired. However whatever I was going for, I did not accomplish oh well practices makes perfect they say. I also used CTMH Blush, Chocolate, and Colonial White cardstock and Say It In Style stampset. The flower and corners were cut out with the Cricut(Storybook cartridge) the other shapes are nestabilities and I used pearls.

A Happy Hello

Okay for this card I used Basic Grey paper, and this Stampavie Lelo dragon is'nt he so cute? Anyways the flowers are from Prima, random button and ribbon and gelly gems. Lelo is stamped once then again cut out and pop dotted he was colored with Copics, I am still learning so be gentle with me. I am not sure about the flowers now though, it is like they are to dark or something I don't know, but they match Lelo's tie and flower perfectly, and they are glued down with liquid glass so it's to late to change them now! Also the Happy Hello sentiment is from CTMH'S Classmate alphabet.

4/12 Flower Pot card

Well here is my first attempt at a flower pot card, they are so cute and easy. For instructions just go to Splitcoast Stampers and type in flower pot card. I think there is so much potential with these, but for today I wanted to use CTMH'S new Tickled Pink paper & stamps, I also used a hang tag from the White Daisy Mini Medley collection which is included with the Tickled Pink kit. I also used a rub-on, DE flowers, chocolate ribbon, blush waxy flax, and Prisma Glitter.

The Parchey Family

I never expected to do a layout today but while the kids were napping I was so in the mood! I love this paper from We R Memory Keepers, and I used some lucious new flowers from Prima, pearls, dew drops, a little bird rub-on and hinges from CTMH and my new Storybook Cricut cartridge for the corners and the title. This layout came together super quick and is a picture of my BFF(LOL)and her family the picture is on hinges and lifts to reveal hidden journaling. Which is a good thing because I despise my handwriting! Don't they look good together?

He Is Risen!!

I am so very thankful today for my salvation! Today is a day to remember just exactly what our Lord has done for us! Wishing you all a very blessed Easter!
