And introducing this month an exclusive partnership with Kennedy Grace Creations as we will be using her sequins with each and every collection. Some sequin mixes will be custom to the collections, some will be pulled from her current mixes.

Now, onto my cards!!

I created my cards using "THE BANANA SPLIT" Flavor of the Month!

and I added on an
"A La Carte" Item

Jilli-Bean Soup
Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup Wood Veeners

This month, in THE BANANA SPLIT, you received a Stamp Set called "APRIL SHOWERS", a mini ink Cube from Clearly Kelly, and Echo Park Ephemera from the "SPRING" collection! You also receive the word die from the Deluxe Sundae called "CELEBRATE"!

Here are the 4 cards I created!

Here is the first card using the items from the Collection One Ingredients:

The card layout is from the is from Sketch #1 
I used the supplies from the Collection One ingredients
as well as the Banana Split extras that were from Echo Park Ephemera "SPRING" for the sentiment.

Here is the second card using the items from the Collection Two ingredients:

The card layout is from Sketch 2 and I utilized the additional purchase of Jilly Bean Soup Wood Veneers called "Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup Wood Veneers" for the card front. Additionally, to add some flair to my envelope, I utilized the "APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS" from the Banana Split extras.

Here is the third card I using items from Collection Three ingredients:

The card layout is from Sketch 3 and I utilized the Banana Split extras to help decorate my envelope. I utilized Copic Markers to color in my bunny from the Lawn Fawn HOPPY EASTER stamp set. I also stamped the sentiment "Hoppy Easter" using the Clearly Kelly Ink Cube from the Banana Split extras.

Here is the fourth card I using items from Collection Four ingredients:

This card layout is from Sketch 4, and I utilized the CELEBRATE die that comes with the Deluxe Sundae collection. I created a background design using the PLANNING SPRING stamp set as well as the Clearly Kelly Ink cube from the Banana Split extras for my focal piece. I used the Doodlebug Sprinkles PASTEL POSIES to decorate my envelope for this card.

My Favorite Things Blog Hop for Scrapping For Less!

Hello All!!

Welcome to the "My Favorite Things" Stamp Blog Hop with the Scrapping For Less DT! 

You should of arrived here from SANDY, but if you did not, please click HERE to be brought back to the beginning!

Here is some info from Teresa regarding the 
"My Favorite Things" brand:

"Have you ever wanted something so very bad that you could taste it? Well, that is how I was with wanting to carry My Favorite Things products on the Scrapping for Less website. I am so extremely excited to announce that we are focusing on "MFT" products for the month of April! This is a fabulous company and one that is very near and dear to my heart! (In more ways than one! I live in FL and have been to their store). So, join me along with the DT in providing some inspiration for this wonderful company with a wide variety of projects!"

So, I am ready to share my project with you!

I used the FEEL BETTER stamp set from My Favorite Things, and  
I decided to use it as it was meant a get well soon card!

I started off by using an A2 Kraft card base and then cut a tag using the same Kraft color. 

For the card base-I took Saddle ink from CTMH and stamped the images to make a background pattern on the card. I stamped the spoon in Versamark Ink and used Ranger Silver Embossing Powder to make the spoon. 

I then added Blue and Gold wash tape to make a cutoff of my created background design. The pink heart patterned paper comes from "Doodlebug Cream and Sugar" paper pack (which you can get from Teresa's online store HERE). 

I then went onto finish the tag. I wanted to use the cute pill bottles and paper piece them together. I used some solid card stock I had in my stash. I also stamped "FEEL BETTER" in the Saddle ink.  I added some old washi tape from my stash (the heart washi and gold glitter washi). I also just added a piece of stashed ribbon to the top! 

I used the "WISHING YOU A SMOOTH RECOVERY" in the inside of the card, and just continued the theme with the wash in there as well!

So, I hope you enjoyed my project! 

Your next stop on the hop is TANYA!!

Scrapping For Less Design Team Project-Disney Layout!

Hey Everyone!!

That's right, SURPRISE! 

I am now a Design Team Member for the online store, Scrapping For Less

I am super excited to share the project I made for my first Design Team Project! 

Today, I got to work with the Echo Park "Magic and Wonder" paper collection and a stamp set from "My Favorite Things". 

I am pretty excited about anything Disney, as well all know, so playing with this paper collection was pretty easy...but, how to incorporate the stamp set? 

Well, after I looked at the stamp set for a bit, I decided that I saw CONFETTI with what appears to be either pill halves, or ice chunks, either way, I saw confetti! YAY!!! 

So, with that said, here is my project- a 2 page layout!

I decided to use some ink colors that I had on hand that I feel matched the colors of the "Magic and Wonder" paper to create my "confetti" for the layout. 

I destressed with a sponge dauber and black ink, all pieces that I cut out to lay down in the layout. I also distressed some of the stickers, which can also be found in the "Magic and Wonder" Paper Collection.

I used some foam tape to pop up some of the stickers to add more dimension to the project. 

I left a small box on the bottom of the left side layout to add some journaling for when I am ready to add my photos in. 

I stamped my photo mats so and did some doodling with a journaling pen to add some "pizazz" to my mats. I also stamped my photo size needed on each mat, so when I'm ready to place my pictures in, I will know what size I need in each space! 

So, thank you all so much for checking out my project today!

​Remember, you can get all the products I utilized in my layout in the Scrapping For Less online store! 

Thanks for checking out my project!!
