I made an advent calendar for my family this month using the Snow Kissed Collection. Our Christmas tree and decorations are blue so this collection was perfect for my advent calendar! I started off with 24 2"x2" brown boxes and I added a 1.75"x1.75" pattern paper squares to all sides but the bottom. I placed them in a shape of a tree and hot glued them together.


I stamped, colored and die cut a bunch of small poinsettias and snowflakes from the same collection. I also printed out the numbers 1-24 and punched them out using a round 1" punch. I assembled all my embellishments and added them to my advent tree.


I finished it off with a large bow on top of the tree and some ribbon flowing freely from it. I just love how it turned out and I can't wait for my family to use it on December 1st!

saturday...Pink and Blue Feminine Card

Welcome back everyone! Today I want to share a card and a quick tip with you!

Does this picture look familiar to you? This is my table after I finished working with my Sunkissed Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden! I had a lot of fun working with it! Instead of cleaning up and putting things away, I always finish by putting together a card or two to keep in my stash! It makes the cleaning up process a little bit more fun and challenging!
(PS. Can you spot the embellishments I used on my card?) :)

I have lots of birthdays coming up in the next 3 months so I made a girly blank card using my scraps! It measures 4 1/8" x 6" and I used one of the ephemera cards for the front. 

I stamped the large rose twice from the Embellishment Bonus Kit and water-colored it with Lindy’s Flat Fabio Hibiscus Rose included in the main kit. Don't they look amazing? I also used a few fussy cut feathers and real feathers from the Embellishment Bonus Kit to balance it out.

sunday...Annelie Project Life Album-Wk 4

I'm here today sharing a Project Life style layout I made using the Sunkissed Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden! This kit includes so many ephemera cards in gorgeous colors that I just *had* to make this layout!

Of course, this layout is for my new baby girl's album! I've been taking a photo a day and writing a little bit about her or her day each day since she was born and will do so for her first year of life. Little by little I'm getting her pages (one week each layout) done and hopefully I'll be done by the time she turns 18! LOL
This is week 4 in her album and she is 35 weeks old today.


As I said before, I used the 6"x4" and 3"x4" ephemera cards included in the main kit for this layout. In fact, most of this layout was made with the main kit and only a few things from my stash!


I made the sweet flowers using Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Die and swirly leaves are done using the Heartfelt Creations Tropical Paradise Die. For the leaves I die cut them from white cardstock and then painted them with the 13@rts Ayeeda Paint Turquoise from the Mixed Media Bonus Kit. 


I used the fussy cut butterflies throughout the whole layout to tie it all in together!


I also did a lot of fussy cutting for this one and used the fussy cut roses to tie in all the individual cards together. I also used the gorgeous turquoise lace ribbon on this particular card. Isn't it gorgeous!? 


Here's another close up of my layout. It has a lot of layers but I kept the dimension to a minimum because somehow I have to fit in 52 weeks on one or two albums for my baby girl's first year of life and it can't be too bulky.

All of my cards have a little bit of journaling, either in the front or in the back for either privacy or more space to write in. You can see a few flipped cards in this picture with journaling in the back.
