Butterfly Notebook

I switched it up today and made a notebook
instead of a card.  I used the remaining sheets 
from a Stampin' Up pack and some chipboard 
offcuts.  I added a pierced circle and a Studio
Calico butterfly which I made sparkly with 
Wink of Stella clear.

 I put this notebook together using my Zutter.

A bright card today, I love Doodlebug papers!  The image was stamped and
 cut with a pierced circle die-namic.  I coloured with Koh-i-noor 
pencils and embellished with Wink of Stella.  The finishing touches were 
some ribbon and Studio Calico Stars.

Happy Birthday

A quick 10 minute card today.  I am enjoying creating something 
everyday but as I have a busy day it had to be fast.  A paper pad,
scissors, stamp, vellum and a studio calico butterfly was all
that was required.

Waterfall Album

I had the afternoon to myself and this is how I spent it.  I followed a 
YouTube tutorial by My Sisters Scrapper.  So simple and
whilst it only used a few sheets of cardstock and papers every little
helps in the battle of the stash.

I used chipboard, white cardstock and Amy Tangerine
Sketchbook pattern papers.

I haven't added any embellishments yet as I havent quite decided 
what to do with it yet.  Isn't that always the way!

Great Job

Today's card has all my favourite things on it, the Doodlebug papers, the 
Studio Calico Stars, Wink of Stella, American Crafts cardstock and
 of course, Paper Smooches Smarty Pants stamps and dies.

The reason most of my cards have had Paper Smooches in them is that
 just before I signed up to a stash busting challenge I had a huge order 
delivered.  I have been trying to use each set before I put them away.

Happy Everything

Today's card is made almost entirely from my scrap drawer.  I used My
 Favourite Things Chevron Cover-up Die and my favourite American 
Crafts cardstock.  The vellum was a left over piece which i heat embossed 
with a Paper Smooches sentiment.

I have made this card several times using different colourways and 
sentiments.  It is extremely versatile.

Love from....

It seems I have a bit of an addiction to Paper Smooches!  
It's Bitty Bungalows and clouds today which are just too cute.
I coloured the images with Koh-i-noor pencils and odourless 
mineral spirits and then added Wink of Stella to the car and 
tree tops. The pattern paper is My Mind's Eye.

# Explosive News

I am a big fan of the Paper Smooches brand and its 
no surprise I reached for yet another set today. 
 I chose Great Chemistry and the matching dies.  I
 coloured the scientist with Copics and added some 
Wink of Stella to his bowtie.  His glasses got some 
Glossy Accents and the 'bubbles' from the test tube
are Doodlebug as was the paper pad.

I made today's card using yellow and grey as it seemed to match the weather.  Overcast and gloomy grey with occasional bursts of  
 sunny yellow.  

I used American Crafts cardstock, grunge stamps and Paper Smooches 'thanks' die. The twine and enamel dots are Doodlebug.  I added 2 coats of Wink of Stella in clear to the thanks.

Smile Card 2

I was pondering what to do with the letters left
over from my last card and eventually decided to
cut several more and glue them together. I then
added red American Crafts card to the top.I used
Mama Elephant's Femme Frames for the red
and pierced white layers. The camera image is
Paper Smooches We Click stamp set and the
background is a Kaisercraft stamp.I also added
some metallic thread and sparkly sequins.

5 Months Later...

I sat down at my desk with the thought of rainbows. I pulled out some American Crafts bright cardstock and My Favourite Things high rise alphabet dies. The twine is Hemptique and the enamel dots are Doodlebug. The sentiment stamp is AmyR Rumor Has It
