Imaginisce: Welcome Spring, and Case Study #185



I had another birthday card to make, and am once again linking up with Case Study.  Here is the inspiration from their April muse, Jaclyn Miller...


Here is my take on it...

To You From Me

Supply List
Imaginisce: Welcome Spring (Pinwheels&Banners, Acrylic Flower Stamp); My Baby (Girl Plastic Buttons); 
i-Rock Tool and Gems
American Crafts: Baker's Twine
Stampin' Up! - White Cardstock, Chalk Talk die, Vintage Wallpaper EmbossingFolder, Taupe Grosgrain Ribbon, White Organdy Ribbon, Ink (Rose Romance, Night of Navy), Sentiment (Best Yet)


The flower/vase image on Jaclyn's card made me think of this cute little stamp from Imaginice's Welcome Spring collection....I also took inspiration from the two-toned sentiment. The result is a very spring-y card, perfect for an April birthday...don't you think?

Imaginisce: My Baby



I'm using up some more of Imaginisce's My Baby collection, I really love the blues together with the soft brown...

Hello

I had some of these banner scraps left over from the last time I fussy-cut them for a layout...so I decided to use them up, by sort of clustering them together and stitching them down. They kind of make the layout I think...well, and that super cute baby, of course :)

Bella Blvd: What's New Wednesday


Today, we're sharing projects made with the newest collections over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog.  I chose to mix and match a little...

Picture Perfect

Supplies:Molly: Selfie, Treasures & Text, Paper Pieces; Family Forever: Family Rules, Treasures & Text; Lucky Starz: Treasures & Text; Button Market: Pickle Squares; Flags: Floral, Spring Flings & Easter Things; Designer Tape: Cotton Candy Chevron; High Five Alphas: Green, Piggy-Punch


I had fun mixing elements from 3 of the newest collections. I pulled from Molly, Family Forever, and Lucky Starz to match the colors from my girls' ll year photos.  I chose gray for the background paper to match the pavement, pink to match their shirts, turquoise to match the bridge beams, and green for the trees in the background. I also threw a little yellow in there, just because I like it :)

Bella Blvd + April PageMaps


I am super excited to have the opportunity to Guest Design for PageMaps. 10 of  us from the Bella Blvd Design Team participated, you can see all of the April sketches, and our pages here.

Here is the sketch that Becky sent me...



Water Balloon Fight

Supply List:
Sand&Surf - Flying High, GPS, Alpha+Bits, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Miniatures, Ciao Chip, Stamps (Hampton Art)
Freestyle Sophisticates - Freestyle Cotton Candy
Lucky Starz - Color Wheel High Five Alpha



I loved this sketch...an instagram photo worked perfectly for the design, I just trimmed a little off of the top. I had fun with the stitching, and spatters of ink...which are both things that I've just started adding to projects recently. The Sand&Surf collection had flower elements that matched so perfectly to the sketch, everything just came together so easily. 
You won't want to miss seeing the rest of the April sketches, and the amazing projects. Also, be sure to check out the PageMaps blog, as Bella Blvd will be hosting a giveaway!

Imaginisce, Case Study #184, and Hebrews 11:6


I have some birthday cards to make, and decided to link up with Case Study...I fell in love with this card by their March Muse, Noni Nina Andaya, isn't it lovely?


Here is my take on it...

There's Only One You

Supply List:
Imaginisce: My Baby (Girl), Welcome Spring, i-Rock tool and gems
American Crafts: Baker's Twine
Stampin' Up!: Dies (leaves, apothecary label), stamp (Vintage Verses), ink (Basic Black)
Cuttlebug: embossing folder (Cane Back Chair)


Clearly, I was inspired by the pink leaves...but instead of the stitching, I decided to use one of my apothecary die labels. I have had them for a few months now, and haven't even touched them yet! I also added a few gems to the leaves that I cut from vellum. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest awhile back, which I think I also pinned.

Now, I don't claim to be a Bible scholar by any means..but recently I was reading Hebrews 11, and I was in tears by the time I finished. So much Faith! But verse 6 really stayed with me...

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6

I think that I like it so much because it was key for me. We can not come to Him, and be accepted if we doubt His existence.  Not just His existence, but in who He is, and what He did for us...and it's equally important that we believe He hears and will answer our prayers. That's it, I don't have any long devotion or anything...I just want to encourage you to read the whole chapter if it's been awhile :)

Imaginisce: Spring Themed Projects


This week we're showing off spring themed projects over at Imaginisce. I chose to use the Welcome Spring collection...

A Day in May

Supply List:
Imaginisce: Welcome Spring (Flying Colors, Hello Spring, Hop to it, Die Cut Tags, Butterfly Clear Acrylic Stamp, i-rock tool, i-top tool, 22 mm brad)
American Crafts: White Cardstock, Baker's Twine, Glitter Tape, Knock-Out Border Punch, Aqua Goodness Thickers


I love the bright and happy colors of the Welcome Spring collection!  I started this layout by matting a 4x6 photo on a 6x6 piece of cardstock, and topped it with my title. I then tucked a few different shaped tags/die cuts underneath for a little interest, and to hold my journaling. I used the clear acrylic butterfly stamp and the i-rock tool to make custom embellishments, along wtih the i-top tool for the brad.


Check out the Imaginisce blog all this week to see all of the inspiring spring themed projects!
