I have been so excited to do this Teresa Collins Memories layout! In the Memories Collection Pack you receive 9 sheets of doublesided cardstock paper and a 12×12 accessories sheet. Also available in a 6×6 paper pad. I love the colors in this pack. They are so soft and subtle.
I was able to get some additional embellishments that coordinate with this pack, but most of this layout was done using the paper and accessories sheet. The flowers were an embellishment which I got separately, but you could make your own using any flower dies.
This was extremely easy and fun! I love having coordinating paper and accessories to work with. It takes out all of the guess work as to coordinating paper and embellishments, which saves a lot of time. So nice!

You too can make this easy card with BoBunny Powder Mountain Collection! The Powder Mountain Collection comes in 6 x 6″ paper pad which includes thirty-six single sided pages in shades of blue, brown, and grey, receiving 3 sheets of each design. OR you can also purchase it in 12 12″ sheets of double sided designer paper including journaling card paper and one sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers in shades of blue, brown and grey. See all our BoBunny collections HERE.
I am personally partial to this collection, because of the shades of blue (my favorite color) and the beautiful snowflake patterns. I can honestly say I like every single sheet of this paper pad!
So, I have a confession to make. I couldn’t get the Snowflake dies to cut all the way through the foil, so instead of getting frustrated and waste more foil, I played with it enough to lift the petals and put adhesive foam under the larger petals to hold them in place and left the small ones raised. I was quite pleased with the finished product, because not being able to pull out the cut parts actually gave a more detailed look in the foil. Sometimes it pays to just leave things alone when you make a mistake!
I stuck the Dew Drops on the snowflake with Glossy Accents and used the same adhesive to apply the snowflake to the card.
It was really easy and took me less than an hour even with my setback!
I want to give you a close look at the Bo Bunny Scrapbook Paper Powder Mountain Collection as well as BoBunny Snow Day Collection, which also comes in 6 x 6″ or 12 x 12″ paper pads. So, here are a couple quickie videos to give you an inside look at these 6 x 6″ paper pads! These collections are fantastic for cards, tags, and even scrapbooking those frosty photos from your winter activities!
The holidays are right around the corner, which means traveling is in our eminent future…which is the perfect reason why you should be so excited about the Bo Bunny Detour 6X6 Paper Pad. It is perfect for those airport pictures if you’re flying, the car pictures if you’re driving, and those stay-at-home-pictures where you have to “detour” your way through stacks of wrapping paper and bows!
Now, I didn’t even use travel pictures for this adorable paper pad! I have had these ultrasound pictures of my baby boy for over a year (yes, yes, I’m a slacker since he is 7 months old now) and I just haven’t done anything with them. I’ve wanted to do some sort of “travel theme” since he’d be either sailing, flying, or coming by train to greet us…..if only it were really that easy, right? I got this adorable sailboat and decided that the pictures would be accompanied with a sailing theme and these fit PERFECTLY!
They may be a little hard to see in the pictures here, but you may be able to see the cute detail in the paper. I used the Detour paper for all of the pictures background matts. The flag Pennants also work so well with this paper! You could use those for flights, driving across your Thanksgiving journey finish line, you name it. So many cute things happen when pennants are around! QuicKutz has so many dies that are so fun and easy to use that will tie right in, so check them out!
Have so much fun taking pictures of all of your fabulous family and vacation time this holiday season. You’ll be able to kick back and snap as many pictures as your happy little finger desires with the knowledge that there is paper back at home to accompany all of them!
My husband and I have had a great time the last few weeks riding our Harley through the beautiful Utah canyons to see the colorful fall leaves that I have displayed on this fun Bo Bunny fall layout.
We have had a blast! This past weekend we rode with our youngest son, who also has a motorcycle, and who shares his mom’s passion for photography. We just HAD to stop and shoot a few pics on the way to capture the beauty of the fall colors on the mountains. He even took a shot of me and my husband going around a turn while riding! (I’ll have to talk to him AGAIN about driver’s safety and no taking pictures while driving, but I am happy to have the shot, since I didn’t know he was taking it at the time.) Luckily we were the only ones on that stretch of road at the time!
I adore this Bo Bunny Apple Cider 12×12 paper pad! It is SO gorgeous for fall scrapbook pages or projects! It also comes in 6×6 which is great for those fall invitations and cards.

S5-120 Spellbinders Fall Foliage
The little card cutouts are actually from one of the sheets. It has a lot of different images that you either have little sayings on the block or can be used for journaling.
Included in this pad are eighteen 12×12″ sheets of double sided designer paper including journaling card paper and one sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers in warm fall colors of red, orange, green and brown.
Have you been out yet to see the changes in the leaves in your surrounding area? It is a great time to get some fresh air and relax. Don’t forget your camera!
I have found a passion in working with Cut, Fold and Tuck dies (See HERE), so this Spellbinders Diamond Strip and Accents baby card was a blast to make! I am quite content to sit and fold over the flaps to create a cool woven embellishment. It’s rather relaxing and I totally love the effect. I am so happy that Spellbinders came out with some new designs in the CFT line. They are SO cool!
I showed my dad how cool these were and he took one look at it and said it looked pretty complicated. HA! Little does he know!
The My Mind’s Eye Gnome Sweet Gnome paper pad is the perfect combination of cute and fun for a bow organizer.Gnome Sweet Gnome…isn’t that what all of our homes are some days? Little rascals running around. Flowers blooming in the sun. Colorful personalities popping up out of nowhere. I think everyone has a little bit of this in their lives. That’s why I love this paper pad so much! It’s is so incredibly adorable and colorful. It has personality. It has pizzaz. And most importantly….it has mushrooms! New fact to know about me, I LOVE cartoon mushrooms. I think they are adorable. Anyway, moving on.
I had these frames lying around and I’ve wanted to do this project for weeks! So glad I did it! It’s so cute and I love organizing. I used a white frame (I previously spray painted it white when I purchased it from the thrift store. It was a horrible brown.) I got my Mod Podge out and got all wonderfully sticky. I used the Gnome Sweet Gnome paper pad because it fit with the jungle theme in my kids’ room, but there are so many My Mind’s Eyepaper pads you could use to fit your style. Just cut the paper to fit your frame and Mod Podge it on. When it’s dry, Mod Podge over the paper as well. It will dry clear, so don’t panic!
Here is step one:
Next, you’re going to create your background. Remember how I am “Use what you have lying around your house, Stacy?” Well, I did just that. I used some foam board for the sturdy backing, added some batting, added my yellow fabric and ribbon. You can probable secure it with staples, but I used packaging tape because, well, it’s what I have. There’s so many layers to it, that it’s pretty wedged into the frame anyway and I probably wouldn’t have had to secure it with anything at all.
Now just add your goodies to it! Now I’ll know which bows are missing and which ones the little bow thief didn’t take down for the day! I’ve seen people do a much larger frame and use it for pictures too. Such cute ideas to accent a room!

I’ll see you next Monday for some fun, new HALLOWEEN ideas!!
Okay, so I have been anxiously waiting all week to share with you the Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters Collection Debut! I received my designer samples last week and literally rushed home to create a video and layout to share last week, but then realized the release wasn’t until today! I was SO disappointed because I just couldn’t wait to show you all how gorgeous this collection is. I am not particularly a purple person, but oh, do I LOVE the colors in this collection! See HERE to view this collection.
Heartfelt Creations created this masterpiece collection with beautiful elegant petals and Monarch butterflies. The typography makes speaking from your heart quick and easy. Their paper is a great value for those looking to get their money’s worth on materials. Since there are two different designs on the paper’s front and back, you get 24 different designs in one package and the stamps coordinate beautifully with the paper as usual!
The detail on this paper makes it extremely easy to create amazing layouts with little effort, like the one below.

The only flower I stamped and cut is in the upper right hand corner of the photo. The lower flower is part of the design. It is really hard to tell in the picture which is the cut flower! The detail in the design is incredible!
In the following video I will show you page by page through this collection as well as the stamps and die. I am all over this collection and seriously encourage you to add it to your own supplies. You can’t go wrong with this one! It is wonderful for wedding, romance, anniversary, teen, girl, spring or summer, garden layouts, etc. It is a classic!
Hey Everybody, It’s september and that means we’re all in a School Daze! With all the hustle and bustling of getting back to school, buying books, making lunches, and the works, it’s a good idea to get your craft on and make those little students of yours a back to school card. My mom used to surprise us with a card/note and treat in our lunch boxes and I’ve been so excited to carry on that tradition!
My Mind’s Eye School Daze paper pad is P-E-R-F-E-C-T for all things school! I didn’t even have to flip through the paper to realize that I HAD to have this one! It’s one of those paper products that you really don’t need anything else to make something completely adorable! The paper does all the work for you! There are several sheets that you can use as cut-outs (which I’ve demonstrated for you) so all you have to do is cut and paste.

These cards were, no joke, SO EASY! If you’re one of those mom’s (like me) who feels that they have a brilliant idea and only a few minutes to make it before the kids are off to school, then you’ll totally be able to do it! Remember that your kids will LOVE having a little “mom” in their day at school. I still like getting surprise notes from my mom! They’ll think that after all that mom/kid summer time you miss them just that much more! You can feel happy knowing that they miss you back while you’re sitting in silence, reading a book, and enjoying your ice cream! Happy back-to-school September!
We are anxiously awaiting our shipment of the new releases, but I just can’t wait any longer to have you take a look at the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares! They are absolutely one of the most gorgeous dies I have ever laid my hands on!
These aren’t like most dies either. Beautiful intricate edged squares of six offer different cuts and designs. No one square is the same.The beauty of these Majestic Elements is that you can use the negative and positive pieces of these die cuts more creative options! Includes piercing holes, score lines, cutting lines and embossing. There are at least 20 different designs you can get from this one itty-bitty set! Now, I say that is an amazing deal!
I made this card in no time at all using only 3 ingredients in my product recipe!
And that is all there is to it! Okay, so I did use adhesive, and my Big Shot machine to cut the dies, but those are staples and don’t count in the recipe as far as I’m concerned. They are a must have for any and all projects and ALWAYS stay on my craft table!
We are expecting our Spellbinders shipment with the new summer 2012 releases in this week, so we will begin shipping Pre-Orders as soon as it arrives!

Today I am thrilled to show you Teresa Collins paper collections from CHA 2012! Teresa was busy with other people in her booth when I got there, so I was not able to get a photo with her, but she is very possibly the sweetest person at the show! I was rather disappointed to come away without a picture of her, but I did get some of her new lines that were displayed in her booth. Her booth is always lovely. Like her paper and herself. They say that beauty comes from within, and that is true enough. Teresa is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the surface and just as talented! I’d give anything to have hair like hers!
Her latest releases come in double sided card stock 6×6 Paper Pads and 12×12 Paper Packs. They are as follows:
Vintage Finds -In antique colors of black, grey and tan you receive all you need for a truly vintage design.

My Mind’s Eye has some of the cutest 6×6 paper pads for cards! To start off, I used the On the Bright Side paper pad for my card. I love that this pad can be feminine or masculine so it adds a nice, well-r0unded touch to your paper repertoire.
For these cards, I kept the paper unfolded to give it your untraditional front and back look. I love this idea because you can tie this card to a bag with a simple hole punch and ribbon. That way it’s not lost amidst the tissue paper! I know I’m not the only one who has that problem! Use any stamp you want and change the meaning of the card.

For this second card, I used the Be Happy 6×6 paper pad. It is GORGEOUS and also very versatile! I have also completely fallen in love with the QuicKutz DR0313 Medallions! You could use three of the larger medallion punches to fit on this card, or four of the smaller ones like I have done here:
FYH143 Follow Your Heart 6×6 paper pad

MC-1 Want2Scrap Multi-colored Bling Clear, Pink, and Purple Rhinestones
Something else that I also love about this card is that the back is already decorated for me AND has lines for me to write straight! I really would LOVE to know what you think of the 6×6 layout for a card!
