Card Creations 10 by Paper Crafts Magazine

I love to make pretty things with paper.
Not only that, I am really lucky that sometimes some of the things that I love that were made from paper end up being published  <3
Card Creations 10 is where my most recent projects can be found, and it is a gorgeous special issue from Paper Crafts Magazine.

This is one of my projects that can be found in Card Creations 10. An interesting little designer insight, it completely irritates me that I didn't cut the text leaf to go the other direction, but I didn't catch it until I was writing up the supply/instruction list to send in with the project and it was too late. I do love this card though, and was so thrilled when it was selected for publication in this high octane special issue!

Ruby Rock-It! Bella! National Scrapbooking Day Blog Hop Happiness!!

Welcome to the Ruby Rock-It! Bella! National Scrapbooking Day Blog Hop!

It is an exciting day as we get prepared and excited to celebrate a very happy and crafty day on Saturday May 5th! If you are a scrapbooker and looking for some wonderful inspiration, I want to thank you for making a stop at my blog to say hello and I hope that you will take away some enthusiasm and love for memory keeping!

The Bella Girl line has been one of my favorite lines since I joined the Ruby Rock-It team! The fun color combination and playful mix of patterns always inspires me and I have paired it with the beautiful silver dotted vellum that was just released at the winter show.

I had a lot of fun removing the patterned center and replacing it with the dots, the play of classic elegant with the bold colors is a fun spin on the story I am sharing about Laurel.

And of course I had to add multiples of butterflies punched from the vellum to kick up the texture and add some whimsy!

Now here is where you get to have even more fun! Hop along and leave comments as you go, the more blogs you comment on the better your chances of being selected for a fabulous goody box that is sure to be exciting!
