Hellooo!  :)

Thought I would do a quick share of my latest card creation.  It's been a busy week, geesh!  I'm sooo looking forward to tomorrow being Friday "yay!" 

The card was made with Little Yellow Bicycle's Lucky Me Collection.  I tore the edges on all of the paper throughout the design (another project done at the airport *without scissors*).

I added simple embellishment by cutting out a shamrock. Then I cut out the word "in" from the Phrases Sticker Sheet.  I placed the word "in" on a button to pop it up from the shamrock.  The word "Love" was cut on my Cricut when I returned home.  I inked edges of all the paper in green and attached a few rhinestones to add a little SPARKLE :)

Lucky in Love...a simple card that says it all :)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Paradise Found

Hi there,

Today I want to share with you an Altered Clipboard.  I started this project this past Monday while I was sitting in the airport during a 4 hour layover..YES, I scrapbooked in the airport, WHY NOT?  lol :)

A few challenges to scrapbooking in the airport, no scissors, no glue, not much work space....

I brought a 12x12 expandable file with my paper, embellies, popdots and tape runner.  I used the file and the clipboard as my lap desk and tore all the paper using the edge of the clipboard.  No scissors necessary :)

The paper line I chose for this project is Little Yellow Bicycle-Paradise.  I love the beautiful colors and Paradise theme.   I wanted to incorporate a pocket on the clipboard, and lots of layering.  This paper line was a great choice for that. 

Look closely and you can see the tearing technique I used on all the edges. The paper with the tree is the pocket.  I matted for a photo on the left side of the pocket and I layered chipboard shapes on the right with pop dots.

I created a title at the top and embellished with a chipboard flower.  The decorative stick pins I placed on the far right of the clipboard and placed the banner stickers over the top of them to make little flags.

Once I got home and could use the scissors :) I added the ribbon.  I placed ribbon around the metal clip of the clipboard and 2 fabric flowers on either side.  I found the perfect "Paradise" metal tag from my stash to top it off.

      This project was a lot of fun :) Who knew a layover at the airport could be this much fun :) 

      Hope your next airport experience is just as fabulous ;)

October Project

It's the first day of October and I thought it's only right to start the month off with a Halloween project.  This is just the beginnings of it....

And looking at this pile on my table, here is what is to come...

The haunted house book is one from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I've had it in my stash for awhile.  The paper and embellishments are Fancy Pants, Oct. 31st.

Now that I've placed the papers I wanted on each page, it's time to get down to the details :)  Check back soon to see what I've come up with.

Have a great day!
