Spring-Inspired Card

I have a Springtime card up on the HSN blog today using the AMAZING Next Dimension 3D Embellishment Sticker Kit from Lisa Bearnson. I adore this kit! Just look at the variety of dimensional stickers that are in this kit!


Here’s a closer look at each sheet.







I put together a quick card using these adorable stickers and my sewing machine.


Feel free to use a different sentiment to fit your needs.

More Project Life Azure Pages!

Happy Monday, Friends! Last week I shared a couple of projects with you created with the adorable Azure Project Life Kit available on HSN.com. Today, I have three more spreads to share with you using the same collection.

This first page features some photos from my kids’ last day of school last year.


I love adding die cuts (created with my Silhouette Cameo machine) and embellishments to each card. Can you tell I love buttons? Hehe!



See the white letters going across the photo of my family in the dune buggy? That is one of the overlays included in the kit. It’s a sheet of 4×6 clear acetate that you just slide in front of your photo … no adhering, nothing. Easy peasy as could beasy!





Here is a page spread where I pulled out the blues of the kit. The colors go great with our photos from visiting a mountain cabin and the local dinosaur musuem … these colors would be great for masculine page spreads, too!






On this last page, I pulled out the reds from the kit to create a page using photos from Valentine’s Day.






The great thing about this kit is that it also includes 12 x 12 patterned papers for those of you who like to create coordinating scrapbook pages inserted throughout your Project Life Album.

You can find this Azure kit (see close up pictures of the kit contents on my blog post from last week here), along with the coordinating 12 x 12 Azure album, at HSN.com.

Happy crafting!


Bits of Color

Happy Friday! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog today with another page using the Social Butterfly Kit. The colors of this kit are ones that I naturally  gravitate towards … I just love bright happy colors! But sometimes papers with lots of color can be tough to scrapbook with because they compete with the photos. When this happens, I like to keep the background simple and add color in smaller areas around the page.


My son’s scout leader sent would send out a newsletter each month containing photos of the activities they had completed the previous month. I love having photos from events I’m not able to be there for, and I know my son will appreciate being able to look back at some of these times later in his life. :)


For this page, I used white cardstock as my background, adding droplets of spray mist in two different colors for more interest. I also inked the edges of the cardstock with the orange ink pad included in the kit. I placed all of my photos together on a single mat. I broke up the four-square grid of photos with one of the My Mind’s Eye Flair Pins topped with a die cut and accented on either side with a cork arrow sticker.  Along the top of the photos I added a hand cut strip of the speech bubble patterned paper by Simple Stories. I used a couple of the bubbles to add details about my photos.




Along the bottom of the page, I added another hand cut bit of patterned paper paired with a length of the fabric tape. The smaller letter stickers of the title help to carry the color orange around the page.

Thanks for popping by today! I hope you have some fun things in store for the weekend. Me?! I think I will be doing a bit of Spring Cleaning both inside and outside of our home.

See you again soon!


Cookie the Dog

Camryn has always had an affinity towards stuffed animals … her collection is ever-growing. :) So naturally, when Grandpa and Grandma took her out for her birthday lunch and shopping trip she chose ANOTHER stuffed animal toy as a new friend.



I used the 3 Birds Graceful Season Paper collection to scrapbook this page along with the 3D Embellishment Kit and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set. Inside the 12 x 12 paper pad are a variety of darling papers … one of them was a large chevron print in multiple colors. I cut the blue chevron from each sheet (there are 2 of each design), and decided to overlap them in opposite directions to create a frame for my photo grouping. I really like how it turned out!



the smaller photos is framed with a stamp frame from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil set with a 3D floral sticker accenting the corner. I also added a couple more pennant shapes stickers below and placed my title across the top.




On the left side of the page, I handcut the large floral element from another sheet of the 12 x 12 patterned papers. I layered a photo on top and then layered together more of the 3D Embellishment stickers and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil stickers to create the circular accent.

These sweet papers have stolen my heart. If you’d like to see more projects using this collection, be sure to stop by the 3 Birds Blog!

Until tomorrow!
