New Theme up on Paper Issues!!

31 Jul

Whoo whoooo!  MAKE A SPLASH!!

That is the new theme on Paper Issues.

What have you got to share???  I am going to share some ATC’s and other projects I can find!  Let me start with these little ATC”S I did for a swap on TALLY SCRAPPER.COM.

I have to get these little things in the mail!

Aren’t these just darling??

I made a set of 6!

Did you see the little ladybug on each card?

Next is this scrapbook page I made also for Tally  This is all supplies from out JULY TALLY KIT.

I had never worked with Sassafrass Lass papers until this kit came out!  I was and instant fan!

For this challenge I had to create a layout and emboss at least 3 items.

What do you think of that crystal trim?

I embossed about everything!  Love this layout!

Perfect fit for Make a Splash..agree?

Here is another layout I did for Tally

This was made with the August Tally Kit.  They have the MOST FABULOUS KITS!!.

Check some of the old ones out!

I made this layout for our challenge called Tally Treasure Hunt.

The requirements for this challenge were:

It had to be about Summer Fun and had to have: 3 pictures, stamping, cardboard and a circle.

Last I have to share these little ATC’s…my son made these for a swap earlier this year.

 I cut everything out for him and he assembled them!

The ones he got in return were nowhere near the work he put into his.

Luckily it did not phase him!

Now it is your turn to LINK UP!

Head on over to Paper Issues.

Momenta Projects as Momenta’s July 2011 Guest Designer

23 Jul

  Today I am posting as the July Guest Designer for  They were very generous with the items they sent me to create with.

My items were all made with the kit called SIMPLY PERFECT.

I have made quite a few things to show you and I still have TONS of paper and embellishments left over.

First I made a festive seasonal decoration.

This could go on a mantle, counter or on a table as a centerpiece.

For the lettering that spells out SUMMER, I used the MY MOMENTA create-your-own stickers.

I downloaded the template  and was able to use some festive digital paper I had on hand by designer Crystal Wilkerson.

Here is a close-up of my button flowers, I just love them. 

I made a sweet little summer scene with the cardstock stickers.   

The scene is made within a 4 inch bottle cap that Maya Road makes. 

Oh, and what about that green trim from my MAY Tally Scapper’s Kit?  Isn’t it perfect with this paper line?

When my little kids saw this, they both were just amazed that I made it and wanted to know if I was magic!

Next, I made a trio of cards to show that the  Simply Perfect kit is very versatile. 

Have you tried embossing your patterned paper?  I love doing this! 

My new thing now is using tiny paper clips to add more embellishments. 

Oh and of course, do not forget to add buttons and polka dots!

The cardstock stickers  are wonderful for my card making moments.

I really love how all 3 of these cards turned out.

Here they all are!

For my last project(s), I found these MDF frames at my local Ben Franklin.

Using the 12×12 papers, I mixed and matched the papers for background and then built scenes to go along with the color and theme of the paper.

Aren’t these colors so bright and happy?

The lettering that came in the kit was perfect!

You have to love how those glasses sparkle, thank to GRAFIX ART and their fabulous product called FUNKY FILM

Oooh, I just love everything about how this turned out!

Of course if I make one for the 4 yo, I have to make one for the 7 yo too! 

Using the same paper line, I was able to make a boyish frame too!  Thank you Momenta

 Aren’t the colors the best?  The embellishments in this line are just so fun to work with.

 I just love the vibrant look of the finished products.

Here the frames are side by side. 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have made with Momenta wonderful products.  

You especially have to go check out the Do it Yourself Stickers.  What a fabulous idea.  Can you imagine being able to make your own stickers and have them match any layout in the world?  That is possible when you make your own.  So be sure to go on over and check out everything has to offer.

Paper Piecing with I Heart {ippity} stamps

Comment #2 was submitted by Heather!  So Ms. Heather, please pm me your know how to find me!!


Today, I have made a card that covers 3 important things for me!

First, it is for my DT with the awesome blog I Heart {ippity), second, I am entering this into the PAPER PIECING CHALLENGE on the UNITY OPPORTUNITY CHALLENGE blog and third, I am using some more supplies from my Tally Scrapper August kit.

I have used the stamp set called: FLOWERS + FRIENDS = PRICELESS.

As you can see, I have paper pieced the flowers and put them on top of my Cheery Lynn Designs die cut flowers called:


I love stamping the phrases and cutting them apart and then putting them back together again.  It is a lot of work, but I love how it looks.  My little flag was part of the August Tally Scrapper kit also, however it did not match my card, so I covered it with some of the new AUTHENTIQUE PAPER and added an AUTHENTIQUE DICTION sticker to match the card theme.  Both are from the line called Journey.

I also love adding beads to my cards!  You can see I have also made some handmade paper beads from the paper in my AUGUST TALLY SCRAPPER KIT and can you believe how cute that Zebra ribbon is?  Also from the Tally Scrapper August kit.  I think I will host a giveaway for this card also…

Summer Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs

13 Jul

I am so excited to show you what I have come up with today.

Be sure to also check out my new I heart {ippity} card by going here:

Click on the picture.

I am filling in for Sandy, Wednesday is not my usual post day.
I always love to use dies, stamps etc in ways that are unexpected.
I am in love with watermelons right now.
The color scheme of Pink Paislee’s Hometown Summer Fruit paper is about my favorite right now.

I was creating a card for a Tally challenge while making this card. The challenge was that the card could not be a rectangle or square.
Here is what I came up with.
The dies I used are:
Hopefully you can see that I cut a lot of flowers and created a watermelon slice from the petals.
Since I was using my favorite Pink Paislee paper, I used cardstock to match the paper so the watermelon slice could be in the same color scheme.
I used a really cool card base that was originally a square, but turned it into the circle with the Circle Stackers.
You can see in the next two images how the card opens up.

I attached the buttons and the twine as the card closure.

Now, what do you think? Was this something you would have thought to do with flowers?
See how fun paper is?
Here is hoping you have a great day and I hope a brought a smile to your face with my card today!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s card.
