Templates from Crafter's Workshop

Thanks Scrapdoodles for giving me the opportunity to play around with some new 12x12 templates from The Crafter's Workshop . Here are some of the layouts I designed using the "Flower Shower" template. I used my stamping ink for each, but in different ways. I think the "Oh So Pretty" layout is my favorite - I used a makeup sponge with the inks. I put the template on white cardstock when I wiped it off using a baby wipe to see what kind of water-color type effect I could get, and that resulted in the background for the "Friends" layout. The winter layout was made with my white opaque ink and a dauber. The templates are fun to experiment with - see lots more ideas on The Crafter's Workshop website.

Spring Has Sprung!

I picked up some beautiful new papers at my LSS, Scrapdoodles, this past week with these photos of Hannah enjoying a beautiful spring day in mind. Scrapdoodles also happens to have a blog challenge going - to use a banner on a layout. I think banners are so fun! I've actually used them on 3 layouts since I saw the challenge last week, but this one is by far my favorite. I can't show the others yet because they are for a "super secret" project I'm working on - let's just say that project is 44 pages and counting! The papers I used here are from BasicGrey - the line is called "green at heart." I love the purple/green combination. The new Cricut cart "Tie the Knot" has this layered, scallop banner. Too Cute~

Scrapdoodles Layouts

I am excited to be a new Design Team member at Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg! I went in to the store on Friday to pick out some of their new papers to play with. I chose the Dear Lizzy "Spring" line and some fun SEI "Happy" papers. I was also able to pick up a keychain chipboard album from Maya Road. I used the chipboard separately on a couple of the pages below. It was lots of fun to play with these new lines. Be sure to stop by Scrapdoodles if you live locally and see all the new products coming in.
