Patriotic Shadow Box - Carta Bella Design Team Project

Hi everyone!  Here's my Carta Bella Design Team project that's up on their blog today, a patriotic shadow box.  I used the Ahoy There paper collection, this was definitely a fun project to make, I love this paper!!

I used the 5 x 7 shadow box by Lori Whitlock; she has an assembly video here. The Good Times sheet from the collection makes a perfect American flag, I just cut out a 4” x 5.25” piece and a 2.5” x 2.75” for the smaller rectangle.

The new matching dies are so fun to use I cut the ship’s wheel from some thin cork. For the anchor I used the 6 x 6 paper pad, I wanted a smaller pattern for it.

Supplies Used
Ahoy There Patterned Paper Anchors Away
Ahoy There Patterned Paper Waves
Ahoy There Patterned Paper Good Times
Ahoy There Patterned Paper My Anchor
Ahoy There Patterned Paper Ship Flags

Happy Birthday To You!!

I'm laughing here, I made this card the other day and I'm just getting around to posting it and it's my birthday so it kind of looks like I've made it for myself, lol!!

These stamps are from Peachy Keen's June stamp club release PKSC-30, they're all so cute, who doesn't love a carnaval!!  For the front white layer I used one of the dies from Jaded Blossom's Card Mat Dies set, these are so perfect for layering and having the stitching which I love!

You're Flocking Fantastic! - PKS Trendspotting Project

Hi Everyone, it's my turn over at the Peachy Keen Stamps blog today!  I have a trendspotting project to share with you, this cute flamingo gift bag.

I used the flamingo from the PKSC-28 April 2014 set and a sentiment from the PK-1382 Flamingo Phrases.  The paper collection is Carta Bella's Summer Lovin' with some dark blue cardstock.  I used the We R Memory Keepers gift bag punch board to make the bag and just added a flap at the top.

Here's a photo of my inspiration these cute chic summer bags from the Pottery Barn.  I love fashionable travel bags and these are so adorable with the flamingo pattern and strips on the larger weekender.  They have a fresh clean look, perfect for a summer vacation.

Hope you like this project and find some inspiration from it!!

Hi everyone! It's Brigit here sharing this pretty butterfly stand up card and matching envelope. These cards are so adorable, Lori has a couple of different designs in her store just click on related projects under the butterfly card on her site to see the other stand up cards.
