Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection! I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.
Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.
The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!
For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.
I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.
I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.
Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!
I hope you enjoyed this trip to Neverland today! What magic will you be creating in your craft room this week?
Carta Bella Shimmer Cardstocks: Navy, Evergreen, and Gold
Thanks for coming by!
I am head-over-heels for the NEW Carta Bella Paper Circus collection and knew I had to use it for one of my son’s birthday memories.
I had three photos for this page and I knew that I wanted to line them up in a row. I put the largest photo in the center and then the two smaller, supporting photos on either side.
I cut a large circle from the Multi Journaling Cards paper
and matted it with a wavy circle that I cut from the Navy Felt Designer Cardstock
using my Silhouette Cameo. The large red starburst pattern from this paper really draws your attention to the photos and makes them “center-stage.”
Nothing says “party” like a banner! I used a banner punch and the Three Ring Circus patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad
to create a mini banner out of the different characters on the cards. The striped triangle pennant pieces were also punched from the 6×6 paper pad
. I adhered the banner pieces in a row to my background and then used my sewing machine to stitch across the top so they appear to be strung together.
I scattered a few stars around the page to tie things together, and also used them to dot the letter “i” in each word of my title. I love adding little details like that!

It’s my favorite month of the year! Yay! for October! It’s also my favorite time of the month where I get to play with the new PageMaps sketches. Here is the page I created for this month.
When my son was 8 years old he LOVED going to scouts. He loved it so much that he would set out his uniform the night before every single time. Cute, right?! Of course I wanted to remember this and had snapped a quick picture of his clothes with my cell phone.
The cell phone snapshot is not a stellar image that would make a great focal point on a scrapbook page, so what I did was add in a cute photo of my son taken around the same time. I then used themed scrapbook products to help support the story of the page.
The Simple Stories Cabin Fever collection with it’s outdoorsy vibe was perfect for this page topic. I had just a few scraps left, so I combined them with a few other patterned papers hanging out in my stash.
I fussy-cut several elements from the 4×6 Vertical Elements paper, 3×4 Journaling Card Elements paper, and 4×4 Elements paper to use as embellishments around the page.
I then added in a few dimensional accents, like the white twine, gold button, and flair badge. The chipboard frames around the photos and the torn paper at the bottom add in more texture.
If you have a random snapshot that illustrates a sentimental story, but won’t exactly look hold it’s own on a scrapbook page, try adding in a photo of the person the story is about. It will add context to the story and snapshot and make the story that much more memorable.
Thanks for stopping by!
