City Sidewalks Featured Paper Collection

Getting ready to preserve those Christmas memories is easy when you have the City Sidewalks paper collection. Cranberry (red) and Willow (green) with the pretty added blue hue of Lagoon makes this a very versatile collection.

Completing the first two layouts from the Workshop Your Way was easy peasy. Using the downloadable cutting diagram, I whipped up these two layouts in record time. Adding the bling from the coordinating Complements and the use of Washi tape and zip strips (the top piece of CTMH pattern paper) are an easy way to add a title and the pop your layout needs. The cool thing, you can mix and match to meet your needs. 
Add a quick journaling box using the Picture My Life sheet of pattern paper. Cut these PML cards apart to use them on layouts, cards, or in your pocket page scrapbook.

The second layout uses more of the Cranberry (red) with little bows and a great big sparkly, glittered Merry Christmas.

And because I love that word puzzle pattern paper, I changed the layout by cutting out the piece I needed from that sheet of pattern paper instead of using the whole sheet. Now I have a little leftover to play with in another project. To do this, I subtracted the measurement of the houses pattern paper which was 4" from 12" the size of the paper, making the word puzzle piece needed 8"x12". I attached the 4" x 12" houses pattern piece and the 8"x12" word puzzle piece to a 12" x 12" White Daisy sheet of cardstock. This is a great way to use up a piece of cardstock that has been damaged, make it the base, no one will see it as it will be totally covered.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
