Thank you from all of us BEETLES & BUGS

Hello stampers!

I have another fun card featuring {Beetles & Bugs} from the Occasions Catalogue. I know bugs are supposed to be icky and gross, but these bugs are super cute to me and they don't bite, sting, crawl or any other things that creepy crawlies do. I made a diagonal striped pattern with these little guys and added a bit of colour with the two-step stamping images, which fit perfectly and look just like I coloured them in with markers! 

And the perfect sentiment came from the {One Big Meaning} set from the Annual catalogue (2016-17). It seemed to fit with all the bugs on the card! I hope you like it, cheers!!

Jeffrey is a "Special Reason" for an "Avant Garden" layout

Hello stampers! 

So sorry it's been so long, I hope you've all been well. I have had some upsetting family news, and that's why I've been absent for so long. Believe it or not... this is the first time since March 1 that I even opened my computer. I was surprised that it's been so long. A couple of months ago I was asked to make some display samples for a Stampin' Up! event and I decided one of them be a page layout. 

I take a LOT, seriously... of pictures of my fur-babies, especially my Jeffrey. Rescuing him and his 4 siblings and Momma was one of the best decisions I have made. I can't believe they will be 5 in a few months. Time sure does fly. I am totally in love with the {Special Reason} bundle and had a bunch of the flowers stamped and die cut, I also had a few of the images from {Avant Garden SAB}. My boy sure does take a good photo, don't you think? 

It's hard to believe that he was once a tiny kitten weighing 3.4 lbs. at the time I caught him. He was so tiny - really tiny. He's not tiny anymore. He's a whopping 26 lbs. now and is still my baby, just a big one now. Look at that face, so squishy!

I was going to add his name to this, but then decided to add the stamp from {Avant Garden} that says "Thanks for being you". I then added a partial sentiment from the {Tasty Trucks SAB} set saying "You're the sweetest". He really is. He wakes me up every morning by sitting above my head purring up a storm. Sometimes he even grooms my hair... i.e. licking  my hair. It's weird I know... but I love that he's different and unique! Love him so much!!!

I hope you like my layout, if you have any fur-babies give them a hug.

Thanks for checking me out... meow, Jeffrey

Inside the Lines... more or less!

Hello stampers!

We've got a month to go for this years Sale-a-bration promotion and today I am sharing the fab designer series paper {Inside the Lines}. Colouring is all the rage right now and this paper is stunning. I made a bunch of cards because once you start colouring it's really hard to stop! 

I tried a few different things...

For my first two cards, I tried something a bit different by cutting the coloured pages into triangular shapes. I added dimensionals to ever other piece as you can see below. 

Below you can see what the card looks like head on, you can't see the dimension... but it's there. I coloued almost the entire page, but left a few things out because I liked the look of it and just decided to stop.

My next card is similar to the previous one with the exception of the angles of the pieces. The first is cut vertical and this one is horizontal. It gives a totally different look. 


Next I coloured the entire piece of DSP and stamped a sentiment directly onto a white space on the paper. I added a strip of gold glimmer paper and that's all it needed since the paper is a stand out all on its own. 

For my last card I coloured the entire piece and stamped a sentiment directly onto the DSP. The card below, I chose on image to focus on and only coloured it. The image really pops off the page.

I hope you like my cards and are inspired to "be inside the lines".
