Fly a Kite and May Kits Sneaks

Hey everyone! I have been at it again, playing with Scraptastic Club's April Worth Wondering Kit and Add-on. Today's card was totally inspired by the American Crafts DIY Shop burlap bows in the add-on.


As soon as I saw the bows, I knew they would be perfect for the tail of a kite. I die cut the kite (and clouds), added a little stitching and then added a Teresa Collins Butterfly Sticker and My Mind's Eye Hello enamel heart to the top of the kite.


And I added those darling burlap bow to the string of the kite and finished the card with a sweet Girl Talk Snap Caps sentiment from October Afternoon.


Perfect for spring, don't you think?!

Now, for the Scraptastic Club May Sneaks!

A Stamping Challenge

Hey everyone! Lea Lawson and I have a challenge for you up on the Scraptastic Club blog today: Create a Miss You card using stamps from one of the April Scraptastic Club kits.

I don't consider myself a stamper, so it really was a challenge for me. ;) I kept the stamping simple and added a sentiment from the Let Me Go stamp set to one of the Evalicious Snip Labels in the Worth Wondering Add-on, and then layered it onto products from the Worth Wondering Kit and Add-on.



Don't you just love that sentiment?!

You can check out Lea's take on the challenge HERE.

Hope you get a chance to play along. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Banner Love

Hey, everyone! I thought I would stop by and share some recent projects with you.

This month, Scraptastic Club has put together some truly amazing kits. I received the Worth Wondering kit and add-on to work with, and I have to say I am in love! The kits are filled with some amazing product, and I was instantly inspired by the pennants and banners in the kit. With them, I created two cards.

First up, Forever and Always:


I stitched across the top a few of the Teresa Collins Daily Stories pennant stickers and a one of the October Afternoon Girl Talk Snap Caps to create a banner as an accent along the top of my card.


I finished the card by adding a couple of Cork Butterflies and enamel hearts, a die cut, and a sentiment sticker along the bottom.


Next, Crazy in Love:


For this card, I made the banner the focal point of my card. I strung together a couple of the Cork Banners, the "Crazy in Love" die cut, a Teresa Collins Daily Stories ticket sticker and an Evalicious Puffy Sticker on a length of navy baker's twine, then added a few embellishments to the banners.


I love the fact that the pieces of the banner are different sizes and shapes. It gives a unique, one-of-a-kind look.

You can see my cards HERE on the Scraptastic Club blog and while you're there, make sure to check out what the rest of the design is up to using this month's kits.

Scraptastic Club: two more Lost in My Mind cards and April sneaks!

Hey everyone! Just stopping by to share two more cards using Scraptastic Club's Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on.

First up, a fun little card using one of the exclusive wood veneer pieces in the kit:


The colors in this kit are just so amazing and it is filled with such fun embellishments.


For the second card, I immediately saw balloons when I pulled out the American Crafts DIY Shop Chalkboard Speech Bubbles in the add-on. So of course, I went in a birthday direction:



These kits are so jam-packed with product that I still have embellishments I haven't gotten to yet. (I need to get working!)

Now, it is time for the April sneaks. You are going to LOVE these kits!!!

Pinterest Inspiration

Hey everyone! Just stopping by today to share another project.

Today is my day on the Scraptastic Club blog and it is Pinterest Monday. Pinterest is the best place to search for inspiration and while searching for some, I found this fun print:


I love the mix of colors and shapes in this print, and it inspired me to create this card:


You know I love to make flowers, so I created a pie chart for the center of one. The colors and patterns in the Lost in My Mind Kit and Add-on really work well together, so it was so easy to put together.


The perfect use for your leftover paper scraps, don't you think?

You can check out my original post on the Scraptastic Club blog HERE and if you're not too busy, check out stick what the rest of the design team is creating with this month's kits.
