Club scrap Adirondack blog hop

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap Adirondack blog hop! If you are hopping along with us then you are here from hetty's blog. If you get lost along the way make sure to go back to karen's post here. Today i am sharing a 12 x12 page with you of my oldest daughter. We took a walk on the rail trail which is a old train track turned path that they made into a nature trail thru a few towns. I just love the smile she gave me when i took her pic. The greenery there was just starting to bloom.  For my page, I used all of the goodies and papers from the Adirondack  kit except the flair button. I just love the journey wood veneer that came with the kit!!! I also cutout some cutaparts and layered them around the photo along with ribbon bits and stamped out "never stop exploring" and fussy cut and layered the saying on the picture. The paper is so pretty with the picture it didn't need a whole lot of embellishing to it. To continue your Adirondack journey ;) head over to josette's blog.

Club scrap may team challenge

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap team challenge bloghop!  If you are hopping with us then you are here from Josette's blog  or if you want to start at the beginning head to Karens club scrap post 

For our team challenge this month we were to mesh together papers and or stamps from two different kits. For my page below i used the embossed winter wonderland paper and added blue to it using my blue prima oil pastels to make it match the Adirondack papers i used. I then layered on the Adirondack cardstock and papers to frame my family selfie pic. ( we took this picture on the boardwalk in ocean city,new jersey) the arrow strip is a cutapart from the kit and the larger arrows i used the stencil with a tan oil pastel and doodle traced it in a gold gelpen. Lastly i added the twine at the top and added the date in the center under a metal label holder from the kit as well.

Hi all, happy may! So happy spring is finally here. We had tons of april showers and i am loving all the may flowers. Soon enough especially here by the jersey shore summer kicks off  officially early with memorial day weekend. So i had to make a patriotic wreath to celebrate. It is abgreat decoration to keep up from memorial day thru to july 4th. Today, i am sharing  with you a pin-inspired wreath i made with goodies from oriental trading. I had a blast making this! Remember the wire wreath forms i had leftover from my last project? Yup i am using it for this project too. It is so versatile!
Check out the pics below to see how i made it.

These are super cute!! And though I didn't color mine cause i liked then just black and white they would be fun to color. I would definitely get them again

Great value. 
 #IN-56/2608 brush set 
A crafter can never have enough paint brushes! ( just like scissors and adhesives cause if you are like me you prob have at leary 10 of  each too)

Creative With Stamps may challenge

Hi all, today i am popping on to share with you a card i made for the creative with stamps challenge blog. This months challenge is flowers. For my card i am using a awesome digital stamp from pattie's  creations called  thinking of you .  
First, i started with a  black A2 card base and i put my digital stamp on a 4x6 format and printed it out. Then i colored the image with my spectrum nior's and added a lil shimmer pen to my image and adhered it to the cardbase.  Lastly, i punched butterflies from patterned paper and added some bling to finish them.Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
