Paper Wings Productions December Challenge

I am back with another challenge from Paper Wings Productions!  This will be the very last challenge over at Paper Wings Productions so I hope you all join in this month!  We are looking to shake things up in the new year so stay tuned!  This months challenge is to create any holiday project or to use red and green in your project!  I created a holiday card using a few stamp sets from the Paper Wings Productions shop.

Snowman Love

Sparkle

Typed Wishes

I started with a white wood grain cardstock as my card base.  I took at piece of red cardstock that came in my Limited Edition Clique Kits Holiday Card kit and cut it down to 4 x 5.25 and then used VersaMark ink to stamp one of the star burst images from the Sparkle stamp set all over the red cardstock.  I die cut a banner shape and then stamped one of the adorable snowmen from the Snowman Love stamp set.  The scarf and bow are also included in this stamp set and I think they are the perfect finishing touches on my snowman!  Here is a look at my finished card.

Thank you so much for stopping today!   I hope you will join us this month and link up your holiday projects for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to the Paper Wings Productions shop!  To pick up a Limited Edition Clique Kits card kit head on over to the Clique Kits shop here and enter promo code CKSANTAHOLIDAY to receive 40% off!

Clique Kits June Blog Share

Welcome to the June 2014 Clique Kits Blog Share!  This month we are featuring 2 fabulous paper collections in our kit and of coarse some amazing embellishments.  Heidi Swapp’s Favorite Things and DIY Boutique from Simple Stories.

If you have arrived from Jody’s blog then you are in the right place!  If you just stopped for a visit please click here and start the blog share from the beginning.  The challenge/theme for this month’s blog share was to share one or more of our favorite things either by photos, journaling or in the blog post.

So lets get to some of my favorites!  I have 2 projects to share and the first one is of my favorite crew, my kids!  They are my world and I am so blessed to have each and everyone of them!  They fill my heart with so much joy and love and at times heartache but I could not imagine my life without them!  Each one of them unique and different but I can see myself in each one of them.  Time sure does fly by so I document everything!  The big events in life but most of all the little moments that I do not want to forget!  Here is a snapshot of us(except for dad he was working)backing out of our driveway!  My oldest, Drake, looks back and then looks at me and says “Mom can you believe you have this many kids?”  My reply was, “Yes Drake I can believe it and I love it so lets take a selfie!”  He just laughed and snapped a quick pic!  This is one of my all time favorites!

I used the current sketch from Creative Scrappers and the June 2014 Clique Kit and had a lot of fun with these fun colors and patterns and I love the mix of black and white!  The Pinkfresh Studio embellishments,  Chic Tags acetate pieces and Clique Kits exclusives are a perfect combo to finish up my layout!

My next favorite is of coarse Mrs. Heidi Swapp herself!  She is the Julia Roberts of scrapbooking in my book!  One of my absolute favorite designers and I was lucky enough to take one of her class and meet her in person!  I drove almost 2 hours to see her at Hannah’s Home Accents in Antioch, IL and it was so much fun!  I decided to create a fun banner to document some of the photos and memories from this day.  This banner will be used as decor piece in my scrap room and when I am ready to take it down it will easily become a mini album!  It is nice to have these memories displayed for everyone to see!

I even added a little interactive piece on my banner to add another photo and some journaling.  Now for a look at what it looks like as a mini album!

I used the new Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners to create the mini album and I love how it turned out and how quick and easy it all came together!  I hope you enjoyed my projects sharing some of my favorites!  Remember to comment along the way and on the Clique Kits blog for your chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the Clique Kits shop!  Sign up to receive the Clique Kits newsletter and follow the CK blog for an extra chance to win!  Your next stop in the blog share is our very own Lacey and she has some amazing projects to share!  Here is the complete blog share list in case you get lost along the way.

Clique Kits May Blog Share

Welcome to the May Pep Rally!  If you  have arrived from Jody’s blog then you are in the right place.  If you are just stopping for a visit please head on over to the Clique Kits blog and start the Pep Rally from the beginning.  This month we are featuring projects using the May 2014 Clique Kit Field Trip.  This kit features the line As You Wish by Fancy Pants Designs!

I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge from Fancy Pants Designs that is featured in their new newsletter!  In case you missed it our very own Gia Lau is the featured designer for their May newsletter so be sure to check it out HERE!  Here is a look at my layout using the sketch provided in the Fancy Pants newsletter.

For my next project I put together a mini album filled with photos of our youngest baby Eli James and his many adventures.  The cover photo was just taken yesterday as we were leaving the doctors office.  He is getting so big he likes to walk on his own now and carry his own bag like a big boy!  I had to photograph this time and document it.  Time goes by way to fast and I want to remember every bit of it!  If you have been to my blog before you know how much I love to make minis!  I used the new We R Memory Keepers Evolution machine to die cut some of the papers from the kit for the pages of my album.  The machine came with some great dies that were perfect to create my pages.  Next all I needed to do was add some layers, my photos and embellish my pages!

Thanks so much for spending some time with me today!  You next stop is Lacey and you are going to love what she has to share with you!  Remember to leave comments along the way, follow the Clique Kits blog and Facebook for your chance to win the Wish You Were Here stamp set by Lawn Fawn and a roll of green chevron washi tape!
