Glitz Design February Blog Challenge.

Happy Tuesday everyone.

I am bringing you a project I made for MBT. I am entering it in the Glitz blog challenge. Wish me luck! :)

For the layout i used my new FAVORITE paper the Glitz Pretty In Pink. I can not get enough of this paper. After I made the Album using this paper i knew i needed more lol. you can see the album here.

I kind of strayed a little bit with the colors but its pretty close. I am not one to stay in the lines of a challenge haha!!

I used a old Once Upon A Sketch....Layout sketch. I think it was perfect for this layout.

I distressed all the edges with my Prima tool. For the large scallops i used my Cricut to cut them out. It is a Cake basics cartridge. I just layered some gorgeous lace found at MBT. On top of that is a layer of paper that i used my Martha Stewart punch on. I used my Spellbinders lacey circles die for the circles. I layered some gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprayed them with some Lindys Gossamer gold and pink chalkboard spray. It is titled "Gorgeous Face" My 5 year old son calls her that. Its so cute. hehe!!! The letters are from Websters Page. I used some Recollections bling. I also used some cute small acrylic flowers from MBT. I clustered some flowers where i put some Kaisercraft die cuts...this was for the blue color hehehe!! Also on my layout is some Wheat sprays and a acrylic spray with bead cap. I curled up the edges of the scalloped edges to give it more dimension. I also clustered some of the gorgeous Acrylic flowers with the organza and bling from MBT. The tag on the left in the cluster is from MME. To finish it off I used the other end of the lace to make a border for the picture. (can't waste any of that lace hehe)

Sorry I was all over the place for that layout description haha!! There was a lot going on. I hope you enjoyed my layout. I hope you have a fabulous week.

Make sure to check out MBT Store and blog.

The paper I got from Yourscrapbooksupply.

Cameo mini album for THEJULEBOX.COM

Hello everyone!! I am so excited to share with you my mini album i created. Jules over at Thejulebox.com designed this gorgeous album with accucut. I am so honored she asked me to create with it.

There are many different options when ordering the album from Jules. I think thats what I love is that there is something for everyone. Make sure to browse her other albums, lace and more. She offers so many different things. Make sure to stop by her youtube channel to see her video of the album she created.

I used Glitz Design Pretty in Pink paper collection. SUPER GORGEOUS!!!!! I used the 12x12 paper and some 6x6. I used a lot of goodies i got from my friend Miranda. Tons of Wild Orchid Craft flowers. AND....... i even put pictures in it!!! yay for me!! lol. For the cover i did a crackle on the cameo. It turned out super cute. I used my Prima distress tool to smooth the edges and then i added some picket fence distress stain. You will see a lot of butterflies. They are punched out from my Martha Stewart punches. I used some kaisercraft wood embellishments.

OUAS and Swirlydoos. Unconditional Love.

I feel so blessed to be a part of such a fabulous and talented group of ladies over at Swirlydoos. We were given the opportunity to be guest designers for OUAS. I was so excited and nervous. Especially because we HAD to journal. well I did but i put it in the bottle so no one had to see my horrible handwriting. LOL.

I used Websters Pages Ladies and Gents paper. This paper is perfect for the masculine layouts. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They are my NEW favorite the chrysanthemums. they are so pretty. I also used some gorgeous trims from The Piece by Piece

The picture is from a few years ago. Its still a favorite for me. All these pictures from this photo session are. hehe!! I use them all the time.

Stop on by the OUAS blog to see the details on the sketch challenge.

Swirlydoos February Blog Hop Block Party.

Welcome to Swirlydoos' February Blog Hop Block Party!!

If you are just joining us make sure you start from the Swirlydoos Blog.

Welcome to Swirlydoos February Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!! If you came here from Lisa G's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today and as a bonus we have 2 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!! There are 3 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!

The Tech kit this month is a must have. Super fun and it's something different rather then a layout or card. For my Drawers I created them using the Kaisercraft sweet nothings paper. I will have a video of how i put the boxes together this saturday so make sure you are subbed to the youtube channel.

Below the pictures you will find a small tutorial on how i created the key for one of the boxes.

I also played with the Clearly for art white out sheet that comes in the tech kit. This stuff is amazing. Here is my keys that i made. One I created a butterfly using some alcohol inks and stickles. The other I made a flower using the tattered floral die, embossing folder, smooch spritz and Graphic 45 metal flowers.

You can heat this stuff up as much as you want it will not melt. its so neat how you can create the perfect shape. You can not use water based mediums such as glimmer mist. It is plastic and won't stick that well.

You have until midnight, eastern time, on February 10th to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on February 11th. In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
1: Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment on each. This way we know you were there. Become a follower if you're not already. Take your time. There are beautiful things to see along the way.
2: Before you leave each blog, look for the “special” words and write it down.
Once you have visited all the blogs and collected all the special words, they will create a sentence.
3: Finally, go back to the Swirlydoos blog and leave a comment letting us know how much fun you had AND tell us the sentence that was created with all of the special words you collected.

My special word is : IS

The party continues over at Petaloo's blog. Have fun!
