Bee Happy Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning lovelies. 
I am so happy you decided to visit my blog today.
 Did you blog hop with us last Wednesday? If not you probably should because you will love it for sure. The "new" whimsical collection is sooo darn cute. I really adore all the different animals so much that my wish list is growing and growing lol.
This time I used the bee die that I ordered right away when they came out.....with the new "Be Happy"phrase that I chanced a little ;-)
For this card I used the older "Happy Tails"collection by BoBunny which still is one of my favorite collections by them {weird right?} because I normally love soft toned papers.  

Bee Happy: 

The B787 - Whimsical Be Happy Die is so much fun because it can be used in many ways it has a sweet flower on the upper left corner that you can layer for more dimension like I did. I cut out the bee a couple of times and layered the colors so it makes the perfect bee!



If you follow my work you will find out that I used the Whimsical Giraffe & You Are Awesome dies on a layout that I created for Maja Design hopefully you will blow me away with your amazing designs too!

For this blog hop I made card using two of the new released dies which are amazing for sure. It's a new whimsical collection this release and it has so many sweet animals & phrases in it WOW I found my new love instead of flowers {nah not really lol} but they are great and very versatile.

Make a Wish: 
Of course I used different Maja Design collections for my card {sorry but I am hooked on their papers} this time I used Vintage Spring/Summer Basics for my card. The B798 - Whimsical Tree of Life {NEW}  I cut out two times in brown & green then I cut the leaves of the green tree and folded it a little and stuck them all on the brown tree oh so much fun. On the leaves I draw some veins to make it more realistic

The CM-3 - A6 Metric Card Stackers Rectangle Classic die I lifted up to let the tree fall behind it a little if you know what I mean then I used the fence on top of the bottom of my card. On top of that I used that cute B801 - Whimsical Bird {NEW} die in a pink color. And to finish the tree I added some flowers with a pearl center.

Evermore Adore Layout for ***Creative Embellishments*** and Playing at Prima Marketing's June BAP Challenge!

Goodmorning lovelies 
I just can't believe this will be the last month designing for this wonderful company. I have enjoyed every single moment of it. Thank you so much Nicolle for believing in me and my work! It's such a great family to work for.....but now it's time for me to take a little scrappy break and make some amazing family memories.....this summer on our holiday to Turkey! With lots of new pictures to scrap for me ;-) Today my layout is based on the Prima Marketing BAP of the month June for this layout I used the pretty "Salvage District" collection and I lighted up the teal color in this collection and added it to my Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces with some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders. 

Evermore Adore: 
When I saw this cute little girl on pinterest I knew right away which collection I was going to use and this layout was born very quickly. The colors in this collection let you make either shabby chic layouts or vintage ones just by adding a different color of flower or different technique.
As I told you before this layout was based on this months BAP at Prima Marketing I just always love their sketches just take a look.
I didn't use three pictures but I added some pieces of that paper collection behind the picture to make it look like that. As I said this was a quick page for me to make sometimes I will be staring at a page for hours and don't know how to go further but this one I just finished in less then four hours wow....and you know what I really love this style of scrapping. On the base of my layout I added some texture past graphite by Finnabair & golden crackle past on a Prima stencil. Then I stamped with the Distressed Text Stamp!

I also sprayed on this page with some storm cloud color bloom spray but also with bombshell black, sidewalk chalk and c'est la vie cerise {from Lindy's}! This collection of beautiful papers has some amazing text stickers in it that you can use like I did on the picture. 
The chipboard pieces are all treated with gesso and Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders {I wish Prima would make some of those like the color bloom sprays} I also added a bunch of Prima metal pieces, mini art stones and glass beads.

Products used: 
Prima Marketing's: Salvage District 12" by 12"collection
Prima Marketing's: Salvage District Flowers different packs 
Prima Marketing's: Salvage District embellishments pack
Prima Marketing's: Color bloom spray
Prima Marketing's: Stencil crackle
Prima Marketing's: Metal Pieces 
Finnabair: Texture Paste Graphite 
Finnabair: Mini Art Stones 
Finnabair: Glass Beads 
Lindy's Stamp Gang: Spray's & embossing powders
Creative Embellishments: Chipboard Pieces  

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and for your sweet comments every time, I really do appreciate them! I want to wish you a lovely sunny and scrappy day.

Lovely Timeless Moments for ***Creative Embellishments*** & ***Maja Design***!

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I am up on the Creative Embellishments and Maja Design blog with this 12 by 12 layout using some amazing chipboard pieces {going to miss using those after June}and the gorgeous "Life in the Country" collection by Maja Design. But I will be designing for another chipboard manufacturer from July on. I just love how colorful this collection is I found this adorable picture on Pinterest and I immediately thought of this collection to use. I treated the chipboard with different mediums and embossing powder, stickles, paint and beads.  

Lovely Timeless Moments: 
The green background sheet I stitched on the borders then I used embossing ink with a rubber text stamp by Creative Embellishments. Which I embossed with purely white embossing powder. I also sprayed and paste on this background sheet. 


 The flowers I used are off course by Petaloo {this time not handmade}which are my favorite flowers by far in this industry. I added some cheese cloth & tread behind my flowers and lifted them up with some foam tape.

 Don't you just love the clocks on my layout well I really do love that sheet from the "Vintage Autumn Basics"collection. Lately I am in to using beads on my chipboard pieces they look so very cute on them. 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I would like to wish you a warm & lovable weekend. If you would like to see what I used for this layout you could always visit either Creative Embellishments or Maja Design blog. I have the link on my right sidebar of my blog. We will be leaving for a family get together with my husbands side of the family it's been a while since we did this. Also because it was his grandparents their idea and they are both not among us anymore so this makes it extra special I think.

Amazing Summer Day 8x8 Layout for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Good morning sweeties, 
Did you all blog hop with us last Sunday at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog? If you did "don't you just love" the new releases if you don't you could always enter here
 ==> May 2016 New Release Blog Hop <== and hop with us.
 Today I would like to show a projects that is totally in my comfort zone with lost of flowers & layers. For this layout I used the pretty "A Ladies' Dairy" collectors edition by Graphic 45. 
My uncle posted this amazing picture of him {in the back as a goofy clown} and my aunt the second on the left way back in the sixties at a campground on little Barbee Lake in Indiana. The three other girls are their nieces so adorable don't you think?


Amazing Summer Day: 
On the metal plate the text says "reality has limits, imagination is boundless"it just so fit to this amazing picture with all beautiful minded persons on it. The cream dotted paper I sprayed with water in the upper right corner to make it wrinkly then I placed another blue pieces of paper behind it and just went nuts with stamping, spraying and pasting. 

Maybe most of you know I love to use metal on my layout's and here I used metal brads for the centers of my layout and in the upper right corner I used a screw met embellishments by "Finnabair"!

On the cute leaves from the B777 - Floral Bouquet Kit {NEW} I added some glossy accents to give it more dimension. Also I cut apart the pretty FRM154 - Quatrefoil A2 Frame #2 {NEW} to place the pieces behind my picture which I layered on two pieces of paper.
