IMG_6913Look at how warm & sunny it was in that picture. AH…memories!

I created this layout using only products from Stampin’ Up! It was actually a card kit but I pushed myself outside of what was expected of this kit and created 8 layouts. I shared a few of them already and this is yet another from the “collection”. That sounds so artsy & official, doesn’t it?!

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy it!

How do you push yourself out of your creative comfort zone? I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments…

“Me” Butterfly Scrapbook Layout

Today I am sharing another 12X12 layout using the Cottage Greeting Card Kit from Stampin’ Up! I was given this kit to create projects for a training session. The challenge was to use the kit and only current Stampin’ Up! products which I did successfully. I grabbed the new products that I just purchased and got to creating. I love the fresh, bright look of these layouts and can’t wait to share more of them with you.

Beautiful Elise Scrapbook Layout

Let’s take a break today from the holiday cards to admire the little beauty on this scrapbook layout. This is my niece Elise-I LOVE scrapbooking pictures of her. She is so energetic and loves life which shows in the pictures that I take of her.

This layout was created with a card making kit from Stampin’ Up! I loved challenging myself to use the kit (that was meant for cards) to make several layouts. You will see more of them in the next few weeks of blog posts. I loved adding layers and my mixed media style to the projects. I hope you enjoy checking them out and find inspiration in how I thought ‘outside the box’.

I am so thrilled that I started the Gotham City Paper & Paint Meetup Group. I have met so many amazing people & have had fabulous creative opportunities. This event was such a fun night where we made holiday cards and tags at the Sony Building in New York City. Hope you can join us!

More Holiday Cards!

IMG_7708

Fa-la-la-la-la…here are more holiday cards. I am usually drawn to colors that are “non-traditional” for Christmas. The first more “traditional” card was a great excuse to use that beautiful piece of scrapbook paper. I love cutting into paper-I know I am not the norm in that way. I hear so many crafters saying that they don’t want to cut into pretty paper but I believe in giving our supplies the lives they deserve. I digress.

The last three cards are bright, funky colors and I have to admit that I love them. They are very much my style. If you read yesterday’s post you know that these beauties never made it into the mail. So pretty. I regret not sending them out. Next year…

A little late for some holiday cards?!

I feel like I start every blog post with an apology for neglecting my blog. Well, this time I will just say that I am going to try to do better with blogging in 2016. (forgive me)

These are holidays cards that we created at a meetup event with Gotham City Paper & Paint. If you live in or around NYC, we would love to have you join us. It has been fun making holiday cards-we met once a month leading up to the holiday season and made cards that were one-of-a-kind and perfect to mail out. I have to admit…I MADE the cards but didn’t actually mail them. Maybe next year.

Did you create cards for the holidays? I would love to see them! You can join us at the Gothamettes Facebook Group & post your pictures there. IMG_7530

Check out my handsome husband before one of his gigs this Summer. We love taking a few moments to take in the scenes and snapping a few pictures. I love these pictures of Marty being Marty-happy and a little silly. This is another layout that I created using a few current Stampin’ Up! goodies and the amazing Cottage Greetings Card Kit. Hope you enjoy it!

I am in LOVE with this card kit! I love that the cards have a mixed media feel to them without having to do the techniques. Personally I love throwing paint and spray inks around but I know that isn’t for everyone. Check out these process videos and grab your own Watercolor Wishes Kit to create your own cards.

Beautiful Butterfly Cards Part 2

IMG_6771

These cards are some of my most favorite creations that I have ever made. They include everything that I LOVE-butterflies, soft colors and bling! The Watercolor Wings stamp set is brand new from Stampin’ Up! and is OH SO BEAUTIFUL! The biggest challenge and the most exciting part is finding color combos that look cute on the butterflies. I think it is fun to experiment with colors to see what works and what doesn’t.

The Butterfly dies for the Big Shot are A-MAZING! I have a new addiction of cutting out excessive amounts of these butterflies. I cut what I need for classes and can’t stop. I have been using them on scrapbook pages, art journaling creations and even more cards. I hope you love these cards & will grab some of the beautiful products that Stampin’ Up! has to offer!
