Hello card

Hello, it's Joan and I've made a flip card to share with you today. I used papers from Moxxie's "Forever Family" collection to create the base of the card, cutting it out with a Sizzix die. Then I added a white scallop circle, a yellow circle cut from the Moxxie paper, a brown doily sticker (Martha Stewart) and a bird sticker. The hello sticker is from Jillibean.

The card flips open when pulled and I wrote my message on the back of the green circle. This was a quick card to make and I really like how it turned out! Check out the Speedy Scrappers store to get this lovely Moxxie paper.

Jump by Ange

Hello Speedy Scrappers!
I'm ready for some summer fun. How about you? 
My fellow dt member Jen T has shown you some really awesome projects with Moxxie's Child's Play line. Today I wanted to show you a layout I made using this fun line.

I love this cute photo I got of my son jumping through the sprinkler last year, so I had to create a fitting page for it.

I used border stickers along the top and then created a spot for my title with scrap pps and staples. I love using what's available from the line as titles, because it takes all the work out of it.

I used another border sticker along the bottom and layered some torn pieces of the green paper to slip my photo under. Then I added another "fun" die-cut and this sweet sticker. It totally fits the moment!

The backs of these die-cuts have different patterns on them that coordinate with the line. So you actually have 2 choices. If the front doesn't go with what you're creating, turn it over for another option!

This bright frame was perfect for my photo. Then I finished up with this awesome blue flourish sticker that totally reminded me of water. So I added some glam rocks and clear glossy accents for the "spray".

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! You can find this awesome line in the store and more sweet examples on the facebook page.

Moxxie - pps, stickers, die-cuts
Imaginisce - glam rocks/ I-rock tool
Ranger - glossy accents
Sei - ink
stampin up - marker
adhesive - tombow, ek success

New Look for an Old Bear

From this...

To this...

Hi, everyone, it's Joan with a new project to share. Warmer weather means the start of garage sales!! I like to find items and give them a new look.

I've had this wooden bear since last year and decided to give her a makeover with pretty paper by Moxxie. This paper is from the Forever Family collection. The first photo (below) shows her after I pulled off the arms and legs. The body, arm and leg were traced onto the patterned papers with a pencil. Make sure you put the body part on the back of the paper, facing the opposite way, when tracing.

I then glued the pieces onto the bear shape and re-assembled it. The flowers were cut with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die by Sizzix. I inked the edges of the flowers, curved them up and pop dotted them together, adding a rhinestone to the center. The bear is holding a Prima "Candy Gems" stem, with a flower on it.

Check out Speedy Scrappers store to order this lovely paper!

Let's get-away!!

Hi  all Jen T. here, happy Tuesday!!!! Something you may or may not know about me is that I love making 6 x 6 cards. I make them alot. Why are they my favorite you ask. Because they are a no-brainer , you take a 12 x 12 sheet of  thick paper and cut it in half then fold. .. Wahlaa two card bases.  Today, I am sharing with you one of the two cards I made so far using the beautiful kaisercraft paridoso collection. For this card I just loved the wooden distressed look on the patterned paper, so I used that to make my base then layered on a big sticker of the parrots and the letters and word from the collection,then fussy cut out a flower from another sheet of paper and pop-dotted it to give dimension . Then I inked the edged with brown ink and added a strip of border to the bottom as well as queen & co. goosebumps in the flower centers. Happy creating! Jen T.

What I used:
Kaisercraft paridiso paper
Kaisercraft paridiso stickers
Brown CTMH ink
Queen and Co orange goosebumps 
Scotch ATG adhesive

Follow your heart by Ange

Follow your heart!

Today I have this beautiful line from Kaisercraft called The Looking Glass. The papers are gorgeous and have such a fun shabby feel to them. I decided to go with this photo of my daughter after her last dance performance of the season.
 I started with a plain kraft background splattered some mist on it and started layering all of these gorgeous papers. Using the border punch on the edge was perfect because it's such a pretty, intricate pattern.
This butterfly strip at the top is the barcode off one of the papers. The butterflies were perfect for this page and I put the strip to good use. I also used gold liquid pearls for the butterfly "trails".

I was having a hard time finding alphas that I liked to go on this layout. These were originally a bright yellow. I sanded most of the yellow off, inked in brown, wiped, inked in black and wiped again to get this look. It was messy but fun. I used one of the banner stickers to focus the eye on my title.

Last I decided to add this wood veneer, but I wasn't sure what to do with it. I didn't want just plain wood but I was afraid inking or coloring with marker would bleed out and make it so you couldn't see the fun heart design. So I tried the liquid pearls here and I love the way it looks.

You can get this gorgeous line in the store. Come to the facebook page and show us your projects!
Thanks, Ange

Moo Card with "Party Day"

Hi, it's Joan and today I'd like to share a birthday card I made using Crate Paper's "Party Day" collection.
First, I made three Moo cards. What is a Moo card? It's a small card, 1 1/8" by 2 3/4" in size.
I made my Moos by cutting white cardstock and yellow CP paper to size and then glueing the paper to the cardstock. The edges were inked with Burnt Sienna chalk ink. I then added elements from the Party Day embellishment sheet to each Moo with pop dots. The word "Smile" is from KaiserCraft's "Tea Break" sticker sheet.
The Moos were spaced across the card. I added twine from my stash and pop dotted the Happy Birthday sticker on top.
The Moos were fun to make - Crate Paper's birthday embellishments were the perfect additions!

Chocolate by Ange Weisbeck

 Hello Speedy Scrappers!
It's Friday, the weekend is here! What's on your scrappy list for this weekend?
I'm working on pictures from last Easter. Which made me want to pull out this fun Spring Has Sprung line from Moxxie. I love it because it makes me think of chocolate. :)

 This is the same little sweetie that you saw last week sucking on the chocolate syrup bottle. I'm telling you, he has a major thing for chocolate. Which is a little bit funny because my older son doesn't really like it.

This line doesn't exactly scream boy, but this just shows you that you can do whatever makes you happy. I "dirtied" my background with brown mist splatter and inked all my paper edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. These chevrons were a border sticker that I cut apart and then adhered with foam dots to pop them off the page.

One of my favorite things to do to my photos is sand the edges a bit. Gives it a really cool look and here I added ink around the edges too. I also popped my photos off the page.

Here I used different alphas and the large & sign to have a bold title. (great way to use up alphas too!) Chocolate is Moxxie's brown rub-on alpha, I outlined them with a brown marker to help them stand out more.

You can find this awesome line in store!
Come share your Easter projects with us on the facebook page!!
