Scraplift with MME...

When guest designer Suzy Plantamura posted a full-size confetti page at MME, I knew I had to try it!

I wanted something busy and bright and fun, to celebrate the joy of Summer, so I sewed my confetti 8.5x11" page right onto the MME star paper:



































Love how well the My Girl collection mixes with the Find Your Wings & Fly!




































































Many thanks to Suzy and MME for the inspiration, I love when I get inspired enough to actually follow through with the project! :) :)

Summer Fun with Elle's Studio!

June brings big fun over at Elle's Studio...we are debuting TWO new collections, as well as a monthly tag kit!
For my projects this month, I focused on the new and fabulous Saltwater & Cameron collections, they're amazing!
For my first layout, I switched things up and went Winter instead of Summer:












































The cool blue+grey hues & freestyle doodling were perfect for this silly sledding pic.




























Up next, back to Summer:



































The Saltwater collection has my heart, of course, since I'm partial to anything beachy, distressed, and subtle.  I love this text paper and the wonderful woodgrain polaroid frame.

I had lots of fun working with art mediums, gold thread, and vellum. The new stamps are awesome too!
































































































Last up is a Father's Day card, using the sold out May tag kit...for a look at June's kit, check it out HERE.














































I love that the kits come with a variety of tags, frames, labels, patterned vellum...such a great mix to play with!  These kits will debut on the 10th of each month, for a one-day price of $9.99...after that day they go up to the regular price of $11.99 and are available until they sell out! You can always sign up for the Elle's Studio newsletter to get a monthly reminder, along with other great info.

Thanks as always for stopping by, especially those of you who leave sweet comments, despite my lack of consistent blog-visiting! :)

Crate Pier...

Just a quick layout before I head out of town...so thrilled to be a runner-up at the Crate Creative Weekly Challenge: Summer Splash.
































Love this diagonal stripe paper from the Pier collection, and of course I'm still so in love with the DIY overlays...here, I placed them behind the new slide frames.

Thanks to the Crate Paper team for the great challenge!
