Butterfly Explosion

There are just a few more days to take advantage of the huge sale at Pixels & Company.  I am loving this new $1 kit from Mye De Leon.  It is called Spread Your Wings and it is FULL of beautiful butterflies!  When I saw the cover sheet to the kit I knew that I wanted to create a card that was covered in all these gorgeous butterflies.

I finished off my card with some Gold Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  I sprayed the whole card and then added some droplets too.

Everyday Moments

It is always interesting when I pull out my camera to try to get some cute picture of my daughter.  I  usually have to make a deal with her, she gets to make some silly faces for every “nice” smile.  Somehow, even some of her “nice” smile are pretty silly.  Good thing I really love this girl!!

Throwback Birthday Hybrid Card

I have been busy trying to keep up with all the fabulous new releases this month from Mye De Leon at Pixels & Company.  When I first saw the Throwback papers and Elements (each only $1 through July 31st) I loved the colors, but I don’t normally use a lot of bright blue and orange. Then I saw the blue party arrow tab and knew that this kit would make an awesome birthday card! 

MDL Throwback Card

I used both the Throwback papers and the Throwback Elements for this card along with the free Easy Livin’ Stamps.  There is a challenge going on right now on Mye De Leon’s Facebook group for the month of July and that is to use these stamps on your  project.  You can then post your project in the group for your chance to win a prize every month.

Everlasting Hybrid Card

I wanted to try a new idea for making a hybrid card.  I usually use my Silhouette to print and cut all the pieces before assembling them, but for this card (and the one tomorrow) I decided to try a new idea.  I created a card front digitally and then printed it out before attaching it to my card.

I used a template from Kerri Bradford designed to be a photo template.  I first resized it to be a 4x6 and then using Photoshop Elements I added all the paper and embellishments.  I then printed it out and added it to this card blank I made using textured Doodlebug cardstock.

I used the new collaboration kit from Mye De Leon and Shannon McNab called Everlasting that is available at Pixels & Company.  I loved the variety of the elements included in this kit!

Easy Livin’ (digital layout)

Mye De Leon has been super busy this month releasing new kits left and right!  And the best part is the big sale going on over at Pixels & Company.  There are a ton of kits for just $1!  I made this layout using Mye’s Easy Livin kit.

MDL Easy Livin

I wanted to keep this layout pretty simple in regards to the paper because I wanted these two cute pictures from Father’s Day to stand out.  One of my favorite parts of this kit are those beautiful blue & red flowers.  So lovely!!

IB 101 Our Croods Adventure

This week is another fabulous sketch from Inspired Blueprints.  I am excited to share this layout with you.  It started off slow, but I love all the little details I was able to add, and the best part, I only used 1 piece of patterened paper and no cardstock.  I know kinda surprising!!
