Echo Park Paper: Lost in Neverland Card Set
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?

PageMaps April: Shark Attack
Happy April! New sketches are up at PageMaps.com and they are AMAZING!!! (as always! *wink*)
Here is the page I created!
These photos are from several years ago when the kids and I visited the Museum of Ancient Life. My kids had a blast posing with the giant shark head protruding out from one of the displays and I crack up every time I see their facial expressions in these pictures.
I pulled out some items from my stash for this page. I used mostly the 2014 collection by Carta Bella Paper called Ahoy There and also utilized a variety of other scraps from other manufacturers for the photo mat.
This shark was created with the “Shark” cut file by Echo Park Paper (#248695 in the Silhouette Design Store).
I created the title with the letter stickers from the Ahoy There collection and a font called Kaushan Script.
This page was so much fun to make! I LOVE Becky Fleck’s sketches!

Close to My Heart: Hippo Club Adventure
I hope you have enjoyed the process videos I have been posting this week using the Close to My Heart “Craft with Heart” subscription kits. This is my final one for the month, but I will definitely be back in April with the April kit.
My teens were itching for summer, even though it was early April, and were BEGGING me to go buy them a teeny-tiny, plastic kiddie pool. They came up with every story in the book to try to convince me, but their main reason is that they wanted to start a Hippo Club. What?! What goof balls! I told them if they wanted a pool, they would have to go and get it themselves.
I guess they REALLY wanted that pool, because they walked the 2+ miles to the store to purchase it, and then walked home with it. Ha!
That is the story behind these photos, but if you’d like to hear the DESIGN story about this layout, be sure to watch the video below!

Bye for now!
