Lisa and I picked out some whimsical papers from My Little Shoebox for this month's design team. These papers and embellishments are filled with birds and happy colors. I just love the glitter Alphabet stickers. They have great texture and the glitter doesn't come off.
I made this two page layout using my photos from this Easter. I cut out the swirls from the clear overlay sheet and added a bit of stickles for some bling.

We will start posting our projects on the Design Team blog beginning the first week of June, though some of us (ahem, Tracy!) have already created a handful of items and put the rest of us to shame. And they call me the overachiever - ha! The projects will be displayed in the store on our Design Team wall.
I would also like to give Chrissy a big WELCOME to our Design Team this month! You all know Chrissy from her awesome classes and fab Demo Day projects, and I personally am looking forward to seeing what she does with this product line. That chick has a trick or 2 up her sleeve, I just know it.
That's all for now!

Here is a photo of the cards we made today on the Copic and Cuttlebug Demo Day. Actually, I had one card incorrect. Jill made a great birthday card with stamped candles and I got confused which cards were which. We have a couple of cards in the store..... Anyways, enjoy the inspiration.

Can you beleive I have another blog challenged employee? I'm going to sign in for her tomorrow and teach her how to make an entry. In the mean time, here is her fun layout using Technique Tiles from Technique Tuesday. She is going all stamper on us with her inking and stamping on the tiles.
I'm back and I've got a lot of pics to share. Here is my take on this months design team challenge using the ALL NEW Basic Grey Lime Rickey. RUN, don't WALK.... You have to get some of the yummy, yummy paper and embellies from this new line.
I used a Maya Road Butterfly album to create this super cute wall hanging. Lot's of Unity Stamp Company stamps in this little beauty, too. Tracy carries Unity, so be sure to pick up this super cool Mardi Gras butterfly and Giggle Grove set. Tracy rocks, she carries everything I've designed for Unity. I'm loving the NEW Dew Drops. I used them all over the place. AND..... if you haven't tried the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, you have to get some NOW. I sprayed it on the naked chipboard to give it color, shine and bling. TRY it out! I used the green and the orange on my butterflies.
I just love the new man in my life so much (aka RICKEY) that I had to create some more with him. Here are two fun, spunky and definitely colorful cards using LIME RICKEY and the new Cornish Heritage Farms, Kim Hughes Collection Stamps. If you haven't seen these stamps, they are super fun to stamp and COPIC COLOR.
Yes, I said COPIC. LOVE, LOVE, LOVEY the Copics.

Gina Painter wanted me to write something for her blog entry. She is a little blog shy. Luckily, she is not layout shy. Gina really played with circles this layout and used some of Technique Tuesday's Techinque Tiles for even more circles on this layout. If you don't have a circle trimmer, the Technique Tiles can be used for tracing the circle shape on the paper for cutting out the circle. Gina has also been known to use her dishes for large circle shapes. If you mess up a little on the edges while cutting, you can use Gina's brad trick to cover the edges. The brads make a great edge and they add even more circles to the layout.
I started scrapbooking almost 13 years ago when my son was born. I received a scrapbook as a gift, put it in a drawer and promptly forgot about it. Well, we were living in Alaska at the time and as you can imagine, there is a lot of time spent indoors because of the weather. I was a quilter at that time and was not interested in another hobby. But, seeing that I had time to kill.....I got the scrapbook and goodies out of the drawer and low and behold, was instantly hooked!! I found so many similarities between quilting and scrapping--color choices, layout, balance, theme, etc. I have never looked back. I haven't quilted in years and now count scrapping as my most favorite hobby, with a little rubber stamping on the side. I count on decorative papers, brads, ribbons and chipboard to inspire and find myself drifting toward "happy" papers. Looking forward to the most happy new Doodlebug lines that are coming soon to our store.
I honestly feel that my motivation for scrapping is that it makes the memory permanent. Once the layout is on paper, you can pick up the album and relieve that memory over and over. I have such a blessed life and looking through my albums helps me remember how lucky I am. Well, more from me later. Come see us at the store soon and we will try to inspire you, and most likely make you smile also!!
Enjoy my layout with this most happy Lime Rickey paper. I felt inspired by the circles and birdies papers and remembered some pictures of my kids at the water slide I was trying to scrap. These papers were perfect for this! I am loving the Dew Drops, using them around the circle picture of Jake!! Glad to be a part of our Design Team. Lisa H.
