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!
GRAB THE SUPPLIES THAT I USED ON THIS SCRAPBOOK PAGE:
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.
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!
A few days ago I shared a layout that I made using the Cottage Greetings Card Kit. I was able to make eight layouts with that kit by adding a few Stampin’ Up! extras to the projects. Today, I hope you enjoy the second layout of that set. I loved challenging myself to use the products from the kit to make fresh, creative pages. I would LOVE to hear from you in the comment section of my blog. Share some love!
LOVIN’ these cards from the June Paper Pumpkin Kit. Each month, I wait very, very impatiently for the new kit. June’s cards were so much fun and very fresh looking. The stamp set is one that I see myself using over & over. Wouldn’t that flower stamp make an awesome background paper for scrapbooking? Watercolor the flowers in gorgeous colors?

Each month I do a FREE UStream Show featuring the monthly kit.
I LOVE “marrying” Stampin’ Up! (both current & retired) with products from other top notch companies when I create my cards & scrapbook pages. I was scrapbooking since 1998-WAY before I became a demonstrator-so my stash of goodies is packed with all kinds of items.
I created these 5 cards for my ALL OCCASION CARD CLASS that I held recently at the Sony Building in New York City. We had a wonderful time being creative on a Friday night in the city. Interested in joining us? Check out my meetup group, Gotham City Paper & Paint.
These are the awesome Stampin’ Up! Products on my cards:
Stampin’ Up! has the most amazing kits to make your crafting fun and relaxing. Sometimes I sit down and stare at a blank page with no clue where to start. Don’t we all do that? These kits help to take away that problem and get the creativity flowing right away.
Today I am featuring the Cottage Greetings Card Kit. BUT…I didn’t use it for card making at all. Actually, I had a blast creating EIGHT SCRAPBOOK PAGES with this kit. I added a few extras from my Stampin’ Up! stash like birds, sequin trim, doilies, Project Life Cards and Designer Series Paper but most of what you see is from the card kit.
I could not wait to feature these gorgeous pictures of two of my beautiful nieces from the 4th of July. They were loving playing outside in the yard and enjoying the warm weather. I used the papers & wood pieces from the card kit to make this fun banner and couldn’t resist sewing it onto the page.
Here is a video of what is found in the Cottage Greetings Kit:
Wow! These pages are packed with puppies and a few other life bits. I made these a few weeks ago and realized just how far behind I am in my Project Life. Oh well. I guess enjoying my life has gotten in the way of scrapbooking about it. Summer break is upon me so it’s time to crank out some pictures and create more pages. What kind of creating have you been doing?
