Crafting Supplies

Let's talk about crafting supplies for a second! It is no secret that DCWV inc. is one of my favorite manufacturer's of paper. No scratch that, they are my favorite! I would say 90% of the paper I own is from DCWV. So when I found out they were coming out with a new line of stacks AND double sided at that, I had to run to Joann's and buy me some! 

I find that the double sided stacks saves on paper waste and I am able to get coordinating projects out of fewer sheets as well.  This set of cards for example is from oh about 6 sheets of paper. When normally it would take double that.

A Day of Fun!

I am honored to be a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables again. For my post, I wanted something fun and colorful because well we could use it in these parts of the Northwest. I'm not complaining because the rain could be snow, but I'm looking forward to the fun days of summer!

 I decided to make up a mixture of the stage card and the center step card

A Party without cake is just a meeting...

 I can't say it enough! I really am enjoying all of the wonderful brand new double sided stacks that DCWV has put out.
 With just two sheets of paper, I was able to make two cards using the sketch challenge from DCWV's March stack-a-holic challenge.

Dirty Girls

It is still hard to believe we don't have clip clops of puppy dog nails on the floors anymore. No more dog hair, puppy kisses, or wiggle butts running around the house.

While our girls have joined each other over the Rainbow Bridge in the last three years, I was still able to capture many happy moments that will last a life time on paper!
For whatever reason, this months Stack-a-holic challenge from DCWV made me think of these photos from a few years ago. It was a match made in scrapbook heaven!

Speaking of heaven made matches, I was able to use a lot of Rinea Copper Foil for this layout. It matched DCWV's 'Rose Quartz' stack perfectly.

I never knew what bravery was...

We all are affected by cancer in one shape or form. Whether it is a family member, a friend, a friend of a friend, or a personal journey. I was honored when a good friend of mine requested a castle card for one of her friends.

After finding out a bit about what he is facing, I immediately thought one of Lori Whitlock's 'Center Box Card' from the Silhouette Design Store was perfect for this project. However, I couldn't find a castle one. So I set out to design my own.

I decided Scrappy Dew's 'Knights' file for the castle and knight was a perfect fit. I wanted to have the castle be 3D in a sense, so that means I had to slice and dice the file.

No Means Ask Grandpa

I have a fun shadowbox I made for an upcoming arrival of a little baby girl. The client asked me for something in a shadowbox form with a "no means ask grandpa" saying. After picking out the theme from AVG Attic's SDS Rockabye Baby Cards file, I went to the craft shops with a small plan.

After a trip to Joann's and Michaels, I ended up with a Posh & Pink theme. I tell you what, the newest stacks from DCWV are amazing. I cannot get enough of them. They are all double sided so I find that I use less paper and at the same time more of the actual 12 x 12 sheet of paper!
