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.

For this blog hop I created a card with new Deutschland Card Facer as the base of my card. I am not great in making those cards, but is was fun for a change. For this card I used a couple of Maja Designs collections which are my favorite papers to work with. 
As I am a hugh sucker for flower and leaf dies. I was really happy when I saw this new release of the: B777 - Floral Bouquet Kit {NEW} and then they assigned it to me {whaaaa} 
 I could not be more happier.

Always Smile: 
The card facer I cut out two times and then I layered them on top of a piece of cream card stock!
On top of the card facer I layered another piece of paper which I stitched first. As the centers of my flowers I took out my new {for me new} button set die "oh boy" these are so cute ;-) and attached it after I added some twine to the center of the button.  

The size of the card is really nice to and you don't have to used a massive envelope it's 5,6 by 4,3 inch. On the cute leaves I added some crackle accents and on the words some star dust stickles. The flower I cute out times two to give it more dimension.

Stop Awesome Dude Tag for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I would like to show you a masculine tag! Yes I am sorry but at the moment I love not making flowers but grungy stuff well it's always a phase where I need to go through "I guess"lol!
Lately I was making all spring and summer stuff and I though well I need to do something else again but next week it will be something spring/summery I promise.

Stop Awesome Dude!: 
For this tag I used the 6x6 "Edge of Town"paper pad by Scrapberry's where I was a guest designer last month. The tag I used is packaging from the Graphic 45 staples collection which I always used when making tags because I love the big eyelet one top. 

For the centers of my gears I used a bunch of screw brads that I have in my stash they always make your projects so much more alive if you used metal pieces on them. 

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used: 
B693 - Cool Dude
B676 - Action Words

Smile Card for ***Cheery Lynn Designs***

Goodmorning everyone, 
Don't you just love the word dies by Cheery Lynn Designs well this one makes me smile from ear to ear. While I am writing this post it's poring with rain and snow {luckily the melting one} why is the warmer weather still not here I wonder. Today I want to show you a happy spring card with some new dies I got just last week. 
For this card I used "Vintage Spring Basics" by who else then Maja Design. 

Smile:

As you see it's out of many layers again and lots of distressing {but I didn't us my sewing machine this time}. Purple is my most favorite color to scrap if it's card, layouts or altered projects I love to hear in a comment {here or on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog} which color is your favorite to scrap and then I will have surprise for one or maybe two of you ;-)



Underneath the CAFR-23 - Square Frames {set of 3} I used some cheesecloth to give it more of a shabby chic feeling I think the B338 - Black Eyed Susan Strip is one of my favorite flowers to make because it's such a fun and easy one with a lot of volume. 
They really stand out one you projects!
