Click here to find the current challenge!


I found some inspiration in some of the colors and followed the sketch!!

The image and colors made me think of the super fun new Holiday Scribble Tree Die Set!!
I used the set to create both my die cut tree and 'Happy Holidays' sentiment!!  Such a fun die set!

I especially love the gorgeous tree!!  I added a bunch of rhinestones for my ornaments!!!

I also used the Stitched Ovals Die Set and Stitched Rectangle Die Set to create my card layout!!

Happy Black Friday!  
If you went shopping, hope you got what you wanted!  I slept it!!  I'm not a fan of crowds and long lines!!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  Sorry I didn't have a post yesterday!  I've been a little out of it the last week, struggling with a cold! :(

Hello Stamping Friends!

I am sharing my second dance layout with you today that I mentioned I would earlier this month using new dies from Frantic Stamper!!

Again I found some super fun pattern paper to use for my background!!
I ended up leaving the class photo and my daughter's personal photo together with the studio logo and year, as I thought it worked well with my paper I used!!

I added the Ballerina Arabesque silhouette to the left side of my design and decided to add a flower to her dress, to mimic the flower on their girls costumes!!

For my title, I die cut the largest label from the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels die set, using a silver shimmery paper! 
I then die cut the 'Dance' sentiment, which is part of the Dance Rock Sing sentiment die set!  I added some black swirly rhinestones around the label as well as a few flowers like used on the silhouette dancers dress!  

Another fun layout to add to my daughter's album!!

Have a lovely day!

Elegant Wedding Card

Hello Stamping Friends!

I have an elegant card to share with you using the gorgeous new Bridal Couple Card Builder die from Frantic Stamper!!

I am so excited to share this card with you!!

I've created a fun shaped card like this before, but didn't have the awesome die like this to make it so easy for me, until now!!!  It will be used a lot!!
Isn't it gorgeous?!

I sure think so!  Makes such a great wedding card!!

But could be used even for many other occasions as well!!  Prom, Congrats on Engagement, Anniversary, etc! 

I used the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels for the label on the bottom, in which I stamped my 'Congratulations" on!  I absolutely love these labels!  I use them a lot!!

Love Dance Layout

Hello Stamping Friends!

I have a fun layout to share with you using fun new dies from Frantic Stamper!!

The recent A Life of Love and Music release from Frantic Stamper had me excited to scrapbook some layouts of my daughter's last dance pictures!

Here is the first one I created (other one to be posted later this month!):
I just love all the fun colors of the pattern paper!!  So much fun!!

I used the fun Square Tangles Frames, first die cutting with a fun magenta colored cardstock for the outside frame and then die cutting again with a piece of heart pattern paper for the inside!!
I then used the Love and Kisses die set for the 'Love' sentiment and the Dance Rock Sign die set for the 'Dance' sentiment!  To create the perfect 'Love Dance' sentiment for this layout!!  I then added all the fun heart enamels and rhinestones!!

I again used the Square Tangles Frames die set to create this frame and inside:
I then used the new Ballerina Arabesque as a silhouette!

I totally love all the elements on this page and how it turned out!!
