Chapel Road Stamps Inspiration

LinkI love the elegant look of a monochromatic card - and although this card is really quite simple, I think it makes a lovely impact. This is a brand new stamp, from Chapel Road/ Class Act stamps.

Fair Fun!

What have you done for fun this summer? Have you gone to any amusement parks or fairs, or how about a great 4th of July Celebration? Well, if so, then pull out your pictures and get ready to scrap! I have to admit, the photo that I used is about 3 years old - but it was perfect for what I had in mind. The Fireworks paper looks absolutely spectacular for my Fair Fun layout. I used the new carnival release from CottageCutz dies - which you are going to love. I was actually able to use 5 different sets of dies on this page! The others are all so cute, I was wishing I could have fit more on the page!

Just Hangin' Out

I always look forward to the monthly sketch at the Beary Scrap - and this is another winner! LinkSince we are in full swing of summer, I used the Country Drive papers from Echo Park. I love how cheerful they are. Even my mini-alpha stickers that I used for the sentiment is from this collection. I inked the edges of the paper with Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet, which just matches perfectly. I paper pieced the Laundry Line with a die from CottageCutz. My finishing embellies were a lovely seam binding bow, and some metallic pink Dew Drops.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will play along with our sketch challenge, for your chance to win some Beary Scrap goodies!
