Cards are on the Menu

It is time for another Seasonal Expression 1 recipe challenge and today I created THREE! The three cards found on page 18.

Using the Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp Set and Thin Cut bundle, Adventure Fundamentals Raspberry and white stripe pattern paper and Basic Fundamentals Pebble and Charcoal pattern paper and Charcoal and White Daisy cardstock. The butterfly and flowers were colored using Raspberry and Sweet Leaf ink and the clear shimmer pen, my newest favorite paint brush.

It is so much FUN to use the Idea Books as inspiration!

Color My Heart Color Challenge and Design Space Friday

It is time for another Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge. This week we are using Mink, Sweet Leaf, and Heather.

My project started with a frame from the Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut collection transformed into a Mink card base and Sweet Leaf overlay, and a Heather Fundamental floral pattern flower petal inset. 

The inside sentiment is created using one of the fonts from the Flower Market Cricut collection.

Chelsea Garden January's Featured Paper Collection

I am loving the Chelsea Gardens paper collection. Here is one of the three layouts from the Chelsea Workshop Your Way Scrapbooking kit and it already has photos!!


Seasonal Expression Recipe Challenge

Today's Seasonal Expression 1 Recipe Challenge comes from page 19. It is a very pretty one photo layout.

I went in a little different direction using this recipe as my inspiration.

Sometimes I look at a layout and when going through my photos one jumps out as the perfect photo for that layout - this was the photo that I inspired me to create from the recipe. It is simple, which is how I like to memory keep. The 'together' stamp image from the Chelsea Gardens scrapbooking stamp set was perfect because together they are my sunshine.
I did change the direction as I wanted the title to be a part of the sentiment that was already on the photo.
How will page 19's layout inspire you?
