March Scrap Club Layouts - Finally!

Both layouts use the Stardust paper packet this month with Topiary, Moonstruck, Desert Sand, Bamboo, White Daisy and Crystal Blue colors. On the first layout, I used the Believe In Your Dreams stamp set, and on the second, I used the Wishing Star stamp set. On both layouts, I took a chipboard shape (star in the first, arrow in the second) and backed it with a patterned paper. I then filled it in with liquid glass to make it shine. On the star, I also used prisma glitter for some extra sparkle. On the second layout, I used the Coluzze Tag Template. Accessories I used include: White Daisy bigger brads, Chocolate organdy polka dot ribbon, and White Daisy photo clips.

Class Projects

These projects are for a class I'm teaching tomorrow night. The top card is 6x6 size and uses Daydream papers, Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set, Hollyhock twill ribbon, Hollyhock and Creme Brulee inks, Creme Brulee, Hollyhock and White Daisy cardstock and White Daisy brads, along with Liquid Glass. The 12x12 layout uses Daydream papers, Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set, White Daisy grosgrain ribbon, Liquid Glass, White Daisy Brads, Black, Hollyhock, Lilac Mist, and Sweet Leaf inks, and Sweet Leaf, Creme Brulee, Hollyhock and White Daisy cardstock.

Happy Valentine's Day!

These are the valentines I made for my four-year-old son's preschool class valentine party. Each one is filled with conversation heart candies. The top photo is the one I made for the boys. It is using Stardust papers, Shining Star and Simple Invites stamp sets, Bamboo, Topiary and Moonstruck inks and Moonstruck and White Daisy cardstock.

The second photo is the one I made for the girls. Sorry the photo is so blurry! I took this before Alex handed them out to his friends and when I uploaded the photos today, he'd already had his party, so I don't have any treats to re-take a photo of. For the girls, I used Daydream papers, Key To My Heart, Be True and Simple Invites stamp sets, Hollyhock and Lilac Mist inks, and Hollyhock and White Daisy cardstock.

I just cut a 4x6 sheet of Background and Texture paper (pattern paper) rolled it up and glued it the long way, then pinched one side horizontally and glued it, filled it up with candy, and stapled the other end vertically. It makes a super cute treat holder, and I just attached the valentine for each child on the front!

Dream Card

This card uses the Aspiration stamp set (one of my new and unexpected favorites) and papers from the Unforgettable kit. On the stamped flower, I used base and shade technique and rock and roll technique along with liquid glass and coloring with the blending pen. I love how it turned out! I also used Cocoa, Sorbet and Vanilla Cream cardstocks, Sorbet and Cocoa inks and Antiqued Copper brads.
