What I'm working on....

well I've been devouring the new Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper! So completely fantastic! And I've also been playing with the new Basic Grey [un] dressed chipboard Precision File set. This is a must have set for any paper craft er! The possibilities are endless for these clever little things! And to have everything packaged together... just fabulous! I cant even start to tell you how many many things I've altered with the products. Well if you can wait just a week or two I'll post them in early May.

Other news, I've been making birthday invites for my two little ones. This year we decided to have their birthday parties together. They are 2 years and 10 days apart. We are having an Art Party. I made the invites in the shape of an artist palette, I used white rub-ons over white paper. On the invite I include a paint brush and watercolor paint along with instructions detailing how to paint the palette to discover the details of the party. The white rub-ons act as a resist and then show up perfectly. I'll post a photo of the invites (I didn't take one yet).

Junkitz Sneak Peek

Junkitz is the April Sponsor at Croppers Cottage. Be sure to check out the Croppers Cottage gallery for all of the wonderfully creative and inspiring ideas the Design Team came up with using the Salsa line from Junkitz. Here is a sneak peek at mine, I'll be loading ALL 7 of my creations on April 25th. Be sure to check them out.

Lets make this fun, post what you think the photo below is and I'll draw a random name on the 25th. You have until midnight (cst) on the 24th to guess. You don't have to get it correct you just have to guess!

Chasing Butterflies by Daisy D's

I just loved working with this line! It had such a fun summer feel! How can you not feel creative and inspired by these papers? They have a classic vintage appeal. The simple understated colors just seem to call out to me " create something, build, reinvent, construct, imagine, fabricate, just make something beautiful with me. " I felt I was able to use this line in so many different ways and each time I got a different feeling from the project. Some were whimsical others just playful. No matter what the feeling is, I just adored working with them! As you can tell I devoured this line. I have a ton of projects finished but still have paper left... What a catastrophe, to have too much paper! If we could always be so lucky.

This is my oldest daughter, she somehow, found the Halloween makeup and went to town! Then proceeded to tell me she was "sick"

My little girl, well I wish! She's never been the girly girl type and this photo shows it best. While she does have on cute princess pjs, she's a tomboy at heart. Her dad got her a new helmet for her four wheeler. What girl would smile with glee for that? And it's not even a pink helmet. Now that would make a mom proud!

I just love this layout of my girls. You see this is a rare event, they are being nice to each other. Most of the time one is telling on the other or taking something from the other. (If you look close it could be the beginning of a headlock, a sneak attack waiting to happen. But it wasn't) It was taken the day of my oldest daughters birthday party. So maybe she was in a good mood and felt like being nice....

This is a new size for me, 6 x 12. It was fast and fun. I'm going to hang it in my office.

Pinwheels and flowers

More from the April Obsessions in a box from Scrapbook Obsessions.

This is a wooden box that I'm going to use to hold the cards I create. I found it at a local thrift store for pennies.

Now for some cards!

Happy April

April Obsessions in a box. Here are some projects and layout from Scrapbook Obsessions April Kit.

This started out as a plain smoke colored acrylic mail sorter. As I've said before, KI Memories Gloo, is my glue of choice. It works every time.

I'll post some more photos tomorrow of another altered item and some cards
