Off the Rails Scrapbooking April Mood board is awesome

Off the Rails mood board this month is awesome. You also have the choice of one other
one but this is the one I chose above... super fun, bright and rich looking.

I am sharing this super card with you using the OTR mood board.
Below is the photo of my start pieces... lots of colour and texture.
The front layered section is stampes and I matted the sentiment to make it pop even more.
The finishing touch is the multi coloured wrapping of Bella Creations Timeless Twine with a finishing bow.

I used paint, gesso and texturing to start the background,
The other matted section is ready for stamping in black ink.

Be sure to stop over at the Off the Rails blog where other DT are ready to inspire you too.

Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kit.. and the men in my life

Hi everyone... I am back again as Guest Designer with Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kits.
Today I am sharing 2 pages sharing photos of the men in my life.

This photo is my husband and 2 sons who you could often find on the outer edges of 
many a soccer field watching my sons children playing many games. It was nice that 
they all went to many of each others games. 
This starburst background base paper was perfect for my page.

Sometimes with the open space pages you can ground the photos and accents by adding
some kind of base by adding a border. On this one also added star burst looking twine
 pattern and a cute cluster of accents

This close up details some more small fun clustered groupings of fun stickers and cardstock die cuts.


There were so many stickers and alphas to chose from which made trimming projects so easy.

More accents and in the upper corner of the page I used micron 01 black pen and doodled stitches.


My Hello page showcases me and my sons. It's not often we get a great photo of the 3 of us
especially with smiles on our faces. I cricut cut the star burst to start as a base for the photo along
with a zigzag border.

Lots of fun and bright coloured alpha, stickers and cardstock die cuts to accent this page.

Such an easy cluster topped off with some wrapped twine tied with a blow.

Thanks for stopping by.... be sure to return often as my guest spot is just beginning 
and I have lots more to share over the next 2 months.

Bella Creationz Timeless Twine and some fun projects

At Bella Creationz today I am having so much fun with their new products
and am happy to share 2 cards today.
Up first is the Hello card. It started with the embossing of the new gold metallic sticker 
sheet to fit the size of the card base.
The background base was spiratically inked and then stamped using both ink and glossy accents in opposite corner twice to outer corners leaving room for the embossed piece.
Twine was wrapped around 3 times and then after lightly tracing the word Hello I glued twine
to cover and say Hello.
For finishing touches I added both star and circular sequins.

Supply List:
Base card: misc
Paper: Bella Creationz Gold Metallic Sticker sheet
Twine: Bella Creationz Black Kraft bakers Timeless twine
Stamp: Bella Creationz Camera Stamp clear set
Embossing Folder: Sizzix
Ink: Tim Holtz ranger
Glossy Accents: ranger


For my 2nd simple, easy and fun card I used a stamp but inked it with 3 shades on a base card.
Notice I offset this part of the image.

After that I ink stamped a butterfly and sentiment.

To the right side I matched a cardstock panel close in colour to the inked image.
I wrapped solid twine to centre and on either outer edge wrapped with varigated twine.
The butterfly then needed a flight path made from some twine,
This is a simple but elegant style card and easy to make.

Paper House Wedding BLOG HOP is starting today

Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kit for March/April... don't miss this one

Hi everyone... I am super excited to be a Guest Designer with Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kits.
Making fabulous projects is easy when the mix of products is so awesome... 
the great colours, prints on double sided papers, super alpa choices, 
die cut accents along with super stickers.

This fun birthday paper was very dark so I started by adding Sparkle Mod Podge. After it
dried I added some gesso with texture  to outer section of paper.. below the upper title section

You can view the sparkle a bit better in this photo. I used lost of layers and many sections
with lots of clustered accents. All the colours were perfect to pop things off the paper along
with the birthday photos.

In these close ups the yellow alpha was a great element with pop of colour.

More alpha title #s along with some stickers in this cluster and some twine finished this corner off.

This view showcases the many colour layers using both paper and stickers.

This last close up has a great cluster of fun stickers and die cut embellishments.

Up next is a super cute Birthday card.
I used the Happy Birthday print to start the bottom base. 
The fun cut away from the bottom of papers was a perfect border.
The kit came with the Jillibean Cool as a Cucumber cardstock die cuts.
Using the triangle pieces I started with a cricut cut border cut to the same size as the die cut triangles.
I glued 3 on each side leaving space for the sticker alpha to add the sentiment.
Using Bella Creationz Timeless twine and a few more clustered tag stickers
 I accented the centre border.

Thanks for stopping by.... be sure to return often as my guest spot is just beginning 
and I have lots more to share over the next 2 months.
