My Redesigned Blog Header

Do you like my blog header? I decided that I wanted to personalize it so I used Stampin' Up's! My Digital Studio to design it. I love how it turned out! It was very easy to use and is also great for designing cards and scrapbook pages.

I watched this YouTube video to help guide me through the process:

Another {Love} Card!

This card is similar to the one I posted on August 9th. It is not the traditional A2 card size. I wanted to fit the entire wheel "I {Love} Love" onto a card front, so I just made the card bigger. It is 9-1/4"x3-3/4", and fits into a standard #10 business size envelope.

Stamps: I {Love} Love jumbo wheel
Paper: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso
Accessories: Brads, scallop punch, Smooch Spritz

Fox & Friends Baby Card

I have two cards to share today. I just got the Scallop Rectangle Clearlit for the Big Shot and I thought it would look so cute on a baby card. One of my favorite sets is Fox & Friends so I used it to make two baby cards - one for a girl and one for a boy. It seems that I have several friends (and my sister!) who are due in the near future, so I will make a few of these so they are ready to go.

Stamps: Fox & Friends, Something to Celebrate
Ink: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue (boy), Pretty in Pink (girl)
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue (boy), Pretty in Pink (girl)
Accessories: Scallop rectangle clearlit, Square lattice embossing folder, striped grosgrain ribbon, staple

I {Love} this wheel!

Welcome to my blog! I've wanted to start a blog for awhile now, but I couldn't come up with a clever name for it! I finally came up with a pretty good name (if I do say so myself!) and so now my challenge will be to spruce it up and try to post regularly!

This card was made with the jumbo wheel "I {Love} Love". I really like this wheel and decided to use markers to ink it up. I love how it turned out!

Stamps: I {Love} Love jumbo wheel
Paper: Bashful Blue, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Bashful Blue, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Old Olive
Accessories: ribbon, scallop border punch
