April Monthly Scrapbookers Club

This month I took part in the Scrapbookers Club Challenge at Paper Flourish.  The theme was yellow and a handmade embellishment.  I have wanted to scrap these photos of Oscar for a while now which were taken on New Years Day.  It was so hot the boys had a run around the backyard in the sprinkler.  I love these photos.

Here is what I used: 
Paper: Farmhouse (October Afternoon)
Embellishments: Flowers (Prima), Farmhouse (October Afternoon), Mini Rosettes (Tim Holtz Sizzix), Letters (Tim Holtz), Twine (My Minds Eye), Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, Border Punch (SU), Flag Punch (SU), Pearls & Vintage Brad (SU)

So my handmade embellishments were the rosettes and pennant flags.  

Thanks for dropping by,

Archer's 2nd Birthday

It was our little man's 2nd birthday on the 11th May and he is obsessed with trucks!  Everywhere we go we have an ongoing narrative about all the trucks.  So I most definitely had to make his card with a truck on it.

There is no stamping on this card so it was super easy to put together.  So here is what I used:

Paper: Ballet Blue Cardstock (retired SU), On The Go DP (Bo Bunny)
Accessories: On The Go Noteworthy Die Cuts, Big Shot, Medium Alphabet Sizzlit Dies, Dimensionals

I have got the hang at this scheduling posts thing so hopefully you will hear a bit more from me now!

It's A La La Land Birthday!

This is a cute little card I made for a little friend's 6th birthday.  It was at the local swimming pool so thought this La La Land stamp was the perfect choice.  I did get inspiration from another card somewhere in internet land but can't remember where now but if you see it let me know!  Now unfortunately I did not write down everything I used but here is what I remember:

Stamps: La La Land, Stampin' Up! (Sentiment)
Paper: Crumb Cake Cardstock from Stampin' Up!, Simply Stories DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers, Spica Pen
