The Paper Shelter Challenge #196 Blooming


Sadly this will be my last card with one
of the most amazing design teams.....
I have really enjoyed my time with this
fabulous group of ladies. Thank you for
accepting me to your group... =)

The "Blooming" challenge is happening 
I decided to use one the newly release stamps
called Spring Soul. She is perfect for this card.
You can find her here!


I went crazy with the flowers and
it was so much fun. I also seem
to have an addiction to these colours!

Digi Choosday's Challenge Week 12 - Lots of Layers!



So this week's inspiration project is going to be a little 
different for me. I decided that for the "Lots of Layers"
challenge at Digi Choosday's Challenge, I would
step outside the box and do a digital scrapbook page.

Originally I was going to ink up the image on 
my own but I could not get it to "work" with the
layout, so I opted for the pre-coloured image
that the kit offers, they really are gorgeous.


I used the MyMemories program. The last time I did
this was about 4 years ago for scrapbooks I did for
my Mom and SIL for Christmas. So I was teaching myself
as I went. Also, my program kept crashing which made this
project a little tedious, but I learned that if I saved after 
every add on, I was ok.


Let's talk about the add ons... there are a TON of layers
on this page..... I even distressed the edges and added the Tim
Holtz distressing ink in Walnut Stain.
I liked the way it turned out, aside from 
it taking forever because of all the system crashes.


The nice thing about this program is
that you can pop everything up by adding shadows
to everything, which kind of makes it look 3Dish.


EVERYTHING on this project was from the new release, Eden.
The papers, the flowers, the butterflies, the word art, the coloured image,
the sentiment. It was ALL from the new release.

This is super gorgeous release everybody, 
you HAVE to check it out.... the link is below.

Digi Choosday's Challenge Week 11 - Anything but a Square!

This week's challenge over at 
is "Anything But a Square" card.

I really wanted to showcase the beautiful
digital stamp called Dollie Daydream Goes East - Lilly.

Isn't she gorgeous?

She was a dream to ink up.

She can be bought as a single stamp or
a full collection. For the paper, I 
used a sample from the Christmas Joy collection.
It matched up so well the image I inked.
Please see below for the links.


I used a Grand Caliber Labels 1 for the card shape. 
Please excuse my pictures as well, I have been trying different 
editing software, the editing for these pictures
were with Picmonkey. Quite fun to use... =)

I was really trying to figure out the best way to
feature the beautiful stamp.
The simple background and simple black
accessories did the trick.
