Life Delights

Just wanted to share more great pages my Mom made. And I have to confess, those are pictures of me and my sister from too many years ago!!

She used the Life Delights papers and this is the Monologue layout from Imagine. The paper and ink colors are Sweet Leaf, Lilac Mist, Chocolate and Colonial White. The buttons are from the Buttercup My Accents collection.

The large red flowers are from the Delight in Everything set. She stamped the full flower in Holiday Red on to a transparency. After it dried, she brushed the edges of the flowers with White Daisy ink and cut them out.

The flower she stamped and has in the Circle Metal Rimmed Tag is also from the Delight in Everything set. The phrase is also from that set and works quite well on these pages!!

The flourishes are from the Playful Flourishes set. She also covered the XO chipboard letters in papers from the Life Delights collection.

The last thing she did was add chocolate ink to the Colonial White papers with the Black Stubble Texture Tool from our Distressing Kit. It was a great idea, it just added an extra something!

Great pages Mom! These pictures just make me smile!! =)

Dahlia Fold

This is my first attempt at a Dahlia fold. I used the Paper Garden paper packet and the colors are Petal, Blush and Colonial White. This is a 6" x 6" card and the circles I made the Dahlia fold from are 2" each.

For instructions on how to make a Dahlia fold, please visit this website:

She has a great tutorial there. And the Dahlia fold is not hard to do!!

The buttons I have on the sides are from the Spring Collection of Craft Buttons, except for the white button, that is from the Holiday Collection. The buttons are tied with Colonial White Waxy Fax. And the Dahlia Fold was finished with a Sparkle right in the middle.

The "Just Because" phrase is from the Stamp of the Month for May called Say It In Style. That was stamped in Petal and the Bigger Brad there is Smokey Plum.

Paper Garden & Friendship Blessings

This layout uses the Paper Garden paper packet along with the Friendship Blessing stamp set. Colors are Blush, Sweet Leaf, Petal and a little Colonial White.

The ribbon is from the Colonial White Collection Designer Ribbon Rounds along with some Colonial White Organdy Ribbon. The brads are also Colonial White. There are two Just Blooms Big Pinks blooms on the right page along with a Bigger Brad in one and a button from our Spring Craft Buttons in the other.

Winter Weary!

We have definitely had too much snow this winter here in Wisconsin! So my Mom decided to scrapbook it and these are her pages. I thought they turned out great!

She used the Simple Pleasures paper packet and the Snow Friends stamp set. Colors are Twilight, Cocoa, Bamboo and Colonial White. The chipboard letters were also covered in Twilight cardstock.

All the snowflakes are decorated with Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter. She also saved an article in the local newspaper regarding the snow and where it should go. She included that in the layout in a pocket she created with eyelets underneath the section with the statistics on all the snow we received this year.

It has been a difficult winter with all the snow and cold we have had this year. Even as I write this, it is April 13th and we had another big snowstorm yesterday and there is still snow on the ground from that. We are soooo ready for spring!!

And here are a few pictures of the close up details of the layouts. And all the snow!!
