Our challenge is up at Use Your Stuff this week, a popular theme of flowers. Good thing I’ve been working with the Moonstruck collection this week from Pink Paislee. It has tonz of flowers!
Here is my layout for this week! This is all Pink Paislee except for the Thickers which are from American Crafts and match this collection just beautifully! I hope you enjoy it and will play along with us on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create!
When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class. It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee. I finally put that puppy to bed.
Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards. I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂
I will be sharing the projects over the next week, so here is a card that I made, which I put together for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week.
I did add some extra sequins for my card just to bring in some more of that gold from the rub on at the top. The alphas came with the kit as well and they are American Crafts.
I hope you like it!

Morning all! I am fresh-ly back from an amazing weekend spent with the uber-talented ladies of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and their 2nd annual Crop & Create Calgary. What an amazing time and the love and inspiration these ladies share with us is just incredible, not to mention their AMAZING sponsors!
Today for our Spring is in the Air Challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog I want to share a layout that I created over the weekend in Vicki Boutin’s Cluster’s, Bubbles and Layers, Oh My! Class. In this class, Vicki walked us through some fun techniques for creating little clusters and adding dimension with layers and (your friend) foam dots! We used an amazing kit of papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection. This collection is not normally colors that I work with but after creating some amazing layouts I really do love it!
This is the single layout that we created and I thought that those beautiful fussy cut flowers are a perfect indicator of spring. We used an awesome technique with black paint and dishsoap – blowing bubbles (so much fun!) that you can see on the white cardstock layer.

This layout also used a bunch of rub ons from the collection (I had forgotten how much fun rub ons can be) as well as some of the ephemera pack!
I hope you like the layout, and I hope you will play along with our challenge. Be sure to click on the link attached to Vicki’s name above so that you can check out her artist page on FB where she will be highlighting some techniques, tutorials and just fun with her new Vicki Boutin Line with American Crafts! Woohoo! We got to see and play with some of these at C&C and they are freaking fantastic!
Thanks for stopping by!
So here is a layout I created from my UYOP course that I took back in May with Scrapbookin’ Adventures – yes I am still working on some of them!
Again, using up the Vintage Vogue line from Pink Paislee. It’s a layout of my son and I on one of our Zoo days!
I hope you like it!
So ya, it’s been awhile. I’m sorry about that. Just so much going on at home that I’ve not had much crafting time lately. However, I’m trying to change that so I’ve been earmarking some time for myself to play in my craft area.
It’s been a long time, but I decided to play along with Mojo Monday’s sketch this week.
Here’s my take using the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection. I also used a doily from my stash and just some sticker letters I picked up at the dollar store. I finally managed to use this line up…I’ve had it for what seems like forever so I really wanted to use it up. I will be posting some more projects that I made with it later on.
Here’s the sketch
and here’s my card
Make sure you stop by their blog and play along this week!
I just realized it is Friday the 13th today….surprisingly, it is a good day and not a bad one. I’m excited to announce that I will be the Guest DT for 4 Crafty Chicks for the month of December!
Quite excited about that and looking forward to creating with their awesomely talented DT!
Today is our new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges…we’ve got a new DT coming up and some minor changes so watch for a posting about that.
Our theme this week is Autumn Leaves are Falling….I am not looking forward to fall in as much as it means that summer is over. The leaves have already started falling from the trees here. Our winters are always so long so I am sad about this.
I created an ATC for this challenge as I had to do it for a swap-bot swap as well. I do apologize for the picture though. It’s not that great. I’ve already mailed out the ATC so I can’t redo the pic so I do hope you will forgive me.
The DP is just from my stash. I’ve had this leaf FOREVER. It is in a chipboard set and so I spritzed it with my Clearsnap spritzes and then I stamped over it with a sentiment stamp from Pink Paislee’s Amber Road stamp set. I also had some little i-rock blings that I used as well. I also have these cute little leaf punches and I just did a few in some autumn colors to add a little tail to the atc. I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and join in on this week’s challenge.
