Scrapbooking Layout!

Hi stampers!:) Does some of you scrapbook? I love scrapbooking so much, and I make layouts / pocket page scrapbook whenever I get a chance. If not, I do try to organize my photos by month, that way it’s easier for me to look back and select what I want to scrapbook at that time.

I want to share this layout with all of you, it’s simply about scrapbooking!:)

 Does the paper cut-outs looks familiar?:)

They are all from our brand new paper snippets- today. And if you have seen our last release, I made a video on how to make those ticket strips that I cut apart for this layout, using the Love Coupon stamp set and labels from This Moment stamp set.

I had so much fun mix and matching them, as well as layering those embellishments together. The border stamps that I used here are from Beware and Journey stamp sets.  And those really cute polka dots alphabets are from target dollar spot! Oh how much I love those chipboard letters, whenever I see a new design that’s right up my alley, I grab 2 packs of them.lol

Thanks again for joining me today, until our next project!

Happy crafting!

Everyday Card: Awesome! / I Love You

Hi stampers! I have another card for you guys which is pretty similar from my last card but not quite.lol I used pretty much the same process, but changing up some accents a little bit.:)

Check my previous card here: Everyday Card – Life is good / XOXO / Today

I used the coffee cup from the Coffee Love stamp set, ticket and sentiment are from the Love Coupon stamp set. The snippet which has the word awesome is the paper snippet-today, that snippet has an open spot where you can definitely write and stamp on it, but I chose to focus on the word awesome and keep it simple.:)

Can I just say how much I enjoyed watercoloring using inkpads? I switched  or combined (memento inks and adirondack).  Experimenting and just having fun is the best!:)

I think this card screams spring! Woohoo!:) Let me know what you think!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Everyday Card: Life is Good / XOXO / Today

Hi stampers!:) You probably know by now that I really love making everyday cards.♥  I found them very versatile and really fun to put some notes on.:)

And so I’m here today to show you how you can combined our brand new paper snippets – today as well as our stamps on a card! Woohoo! best of both worlds.lol Lovin’ all of the layers on this card, I had the best time making this one!:)

Started with a watercolor paper, and then splatter some blue ink mixed with water to create that texture behind the layers. As always, I used my scraps to add some paper layers here and there. I also added the fun polka dots fabric tape and sewing thread for more texture. I stamped the jar image from the Oh So Fun stamp set, and then cut it out,  I didn’t add any color, just keeping it simple.:) And then stamped my ticket strip and sentiment from the Love Coupon stamp set, cut it out and colored too. I stapled the paper snippets, and just totally lovin’ the combined sentiments and how each one stands out.Added some cute puffy heart stickers too! Love those!:)

Let me know what you think about this card. I hope you enjoyed!:)

Thanks again for joining me today!

Color Splash / Spring / Everyday Card

Happy first day of Spring stampers! Oh my! Are you excited as I am? I’m super excited for spring, I can’t wait to see tons of lovely flowers.

And what’s a better way to celebrate spring here? I have another everyday card with some splash of spring colors for you! Woohoo!:)

I used my adirondack inkpads to create that lovely watercolor background. It’s on a watercolor paper which makes it easier to blend with water. I just had a blast mixing any colors. No rules!:) Just have fun!

Once the paper is dry, I stamped everything else on top of it. All of the elements and sentiments are from the Love Coupon and This Moment stamp sets. I did add some splatters using my glimmer mists, it adds a little something.:)

I added some enamel dots at the end for more spring vibes!:) Oh how I love this card! It brings so much happiness! I hope you enjoyed it too!:)

Love This Moment by: Heather Hoffman

Hello! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards with one final card to share as guest designer – thanks so much for having me! I had so much fun! I played with both sets to make another card to share – and layered lots of pretty pattern papers together:
I used both the newly released Love Coupon stamp set:
And this set called This Moment:
I stamped the heart in red dye ink and covered it with Wink of Stella – you can almost see it in the photos! I then stamped everything else in one layer, then stacked up all my pattern papers and added 3 messy rows of stitching to hold it all together. I felt like the word “love” got lost a little under the stitching, so I stamped it again on a strip of white with the edges trimmed at an angle, and popped it up with foam adhesive to make it stand out a bit more. Finished off with a few sequins sprinkled on, and also used my fingers to curl up the paper around the stitching to give it some fun dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by today – and again to Precious Remembrance for having me!
Have a wonderful day!

Oh So Artsy! Snow + Coffee Love

Hi stampers!:) How are you today? We had a light snow the other night, so the next morning we had a pretty snow on our yard. My kids got excited and played outside that morning, and the snow started to melt just after noon.lol  During winter time, it couldn’t be any better having a nice warm drink! Coffee for me! How about you?:)

Oh! just feeling so artsy today and inspired by different things, I chose these pretty simple color combo: black & white. No patterned paper this time (lol ok.. just a little bit of designer paper,at the center of my coffee cup for paper piecing). And the rest are just stamps.:)

Here are the stamps that I used for my background:

New Day, DIY, Positive Thoughts, Fall Colors.

I had a blasts mixed and matching these stamps.:)

 I stamped my coffee cup using the Coffee Love stamp set, and cut it out . I added some sentiments from This Moment stamp set. And that mini arrow border is from the Love Coupon stamp set. I love little details, that makes a lot of difference.:)

Added some dimensionals at the back of my image and some sewing thread for more texture. Using the same black ink (memento tuxedo black), I distressed the edges of my card as well.

————————————————–

I also want to share with you that there is a Coffee Lover’s Blog hop going on, thanks to designer Judy for the head’s up!:) Whether you love coffee or not. Some of you might be interested in joining the challenge and win some amazing prizes. If you have the Coffee Love stamp set, it’s the best time to ink it up again and join the fun!
