Beautiful Friendship

The paper collection featured for May is one of the NEW Seasonal Expression 2 collections, Beautiful Friendship. There are blues, yellows, grays and pinks, something for everyone and every memory.

In celebration of National Scrapbooking Month, I will be sharing layouts, new and old as we need to be sharing our stories with our families and for future generations. Share the who, what, when and even more, the why! What makes this photo or group of photos so special.

My first project, a layout, shares the beautiful friendship between a dog and his people or in this case my grandchildren.

Comet has been a part of their family before they were born and has welcomed each one. I have two more photos of two more grandchildren with Comet and this layout is ready for their family book. And yes, I shared my handwriting in this one. I added just a few embellishments, the blue flags to pop the color in two of the photos and the plaid border. I added a border of gray hearts with paw prints. I kept it simple, as simple as the love of a child and his pet.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
