Good morning everyone,

Today I'd like to share a banner I made.  I'm hoping to repaint my craft room soon.  As you can see the color is dark and not too inspiring.  It was supposed to be a burgundy however it is more like a muddy brick.  Anyway, when I repaint it will be light and airy and have touches of black and white.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make each of the pennants and I used the Cricut Type Candy cartridge for the letters.  The sheer pink ribbon, black satin ribbon and string pearls are all from my stash.  The flowers are by Recollections.  For the paper I used black and white cardstock from Georgia Pacific.  I get it really cheap at Walmart and it is a great weight for just about everything. The patterned paper is by Nicole Crafts and the collection is called Black & White.

This is going to be my inspiration to get moving on redoing my craft room.

This banner has been Linked Up on the Pink Cricut Tuesday Link Up.

Jackson's Boo Boo

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Today I'd like to share a layout I did.  I've never posted a layout before.  So here goes. This layout is a two page 12 x 12 layout and it was done following my dog Jackson's recent surgery.  He had a tumor removed from his foot and hopefully he's going to be fine.  The layout shows him following the surgery with a bandage, the stitches in his foot, and wearing a cone so that he didn't lick the stitches once the bandage was removed.

The striped paper in the background is from Nicole Crafts, the paper pack was called Funky Spice.  I got it at AC Moore.  The purple paper used for some of the photo mats and the accent stripes as well as the green paper used on the remaining mats are all from Recollections.  The journaling cards were cut using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped with the coordinating stamp.  The ink used for the stamping was also from CTMH and so were the colored pencils I used to write on the journaling cards.  The crutches and pill bottle embellishments are by EK Success and the paws and the woof came from Queen and Co. and are a Core'dinations Match product.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you card

Good morning everyone!

Today I'd like to share a card I card I made for my brother, sister-in-law and beautiful baby niece to thank them for the very thoughtful birthday gift they gave me.

The base of this 6" x 6" card was made using paper from the DCWV Spring Fling stack.  I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper. The first layer is a piece of Recollections cardstock cut using the Fleur de Lis Squares Nestabilities die.  For the oval I used the back of the same piece of DCWV paper so that the color would be exact.  I cut it with the Nestabilities Floral Ovals die.  The pearls are all Recollections.  The stamp is an old one from my stash and the ink is from Close to My Heart in Cotton Candy.  On the inside of the card I layered a piece of the blue Recollections cardstock cut at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" with rounded corners, and on top of that, another piece of the plain side of the DCWV paper cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" again with rounded corners.  I hope they like the card, and I hope you like it too.  Leave me a comment and let me know!

Hugs, Paula
