Hero Arts Sunshine 
Yesterday I used this set to make a scrapbook page, today it's a card (well 2)!
Thanks a Bunch
I used the strawberry from the set to create my own patterned paper. Since the stamp is one piece, I carefully inked up only the bottom with red and repeatedly
stamped until done and then did the same with the green leaves.

Next I used nesting circle days to cut a void out of the pattern paper for my sentiment So as to have no waste, I used the cut-out piece to make a 2nd card! 

The sentiment was from a digital cut file that I LOVE from the a2z store The font mix is perfect! Here's a close up!

Hi Friends! Here today with a fun feature of a Hero Arts Basic Grey collaboration called Sunshine
Hero Arts Sunshine 
This is a super cute summer stamp set, Today I'll show you how I used it on a scrapbook page! Then, Come back tomorrow and I've got TWO cards for you! Don't forget - You've got a few more days to enter our Anything Goes challenge!!
So lets get to it shall we?

Total coincidence, but I used the "Anything Goes" kit from Echo Park for this layout. I started with a plain white 12x12 and layered up from there. After using some assorted embellishments from the kit, I made some of my own using the stamp set!

I stamped the Good Times and Best Day Ever stamps in some Orange Soda Hero Arts ink and then the super cute Berry Sweet stamp in Bubblegum! Then cut them out and added them to my page. These are very versatile stamps for scrapbooking!

Don't forget to link up YOUR hero arts creation. You've got till the end of the month! See you back here tomorrow for more fun with the Sunshine Stamp Set

Happy Memorial Day & Thanks to our Vetrans!

Happy Memorial Day friends, I hope your having loads of fun with family & cook outs.
Its a sunny 80 something here (which means it'll probably storm shortly)
The local VFW here goes out on Memorial Day to a few cemeteries to celebrate vetrans
last year they came to my Grandpa's grave side for a 21-gun salute

It was particularly celebratory because its probably one of the last times we were able to take
my aunt out of the house (she has dementia) to anything she'd slightly enjoy & understand.

This layout was made with a 4th of July kit from The Paper Studio with the addition of
some We R Memory Keepers sticky back sequins which I LOVE because you don't have
to fus with glue AND they come 3 sizes to a pack!

I put the whole thing together quite quickly with my Kelly Craft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square

Hope you Like!



Scrapbook Challenges: Sketch



A Fantabulous Fun Announcement & Challenge

 Happy Monday! I'm very excited to announce that I've joined the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog design team and am here with my inaugural post! Welcome to another Monday challenge!

Prize Details

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.


 I decided to make this sketch into a scrapbook page! I've combine elements from the Edge To Edge, Elegant Edges, and my current favorite Bits & Pieces (all linked below) Here's what I came up with;

I have a current obession with the Miranda Lambert song "Little Red Wagon" and have appropriately named this page after it. I started with a 12x12 kraft cardstock and cut the chevron piece from Edge to Edge and layered on top a little cover book piece from Elegant Edges. I used to cut your own font feature of my Cricut Explore to cut out most of my title and embellished with some letter stickers from the paper studio. Finally, I added my 5x7 image and topped it off with a banner flag cut from bits and pieces embellished with some twine and a button!

I hope you like what I've come up with! What's you're take on the sketch?
Join us by linking up your project over at the Fantabulous Cricut blog by Sunday 06/07



Have a Great Day!

Hey All! How are you on this fine Sunday.
I decided to play with a little embossing paste today!

I finally got my hands on MFT Blueprints 20 which I've wanted forever
and couldn't wait to use my new favorite die!

The stencil is from Penny Black which I got at a scrapbooking show last week
with embossing paste on my mind.

I colored my embossing paste using Hero Arts dye inks following
the color scheme of the current Color Q challenge.

After that dried, I stamped my Hero Arts sentiment in some versamark
ink and then heat embossed some white embossing powder.

I topped it off with some fun white sequins!
