Simple Stories - Say Cheese!

Last month I got to play with the fun and magical line 'Say Cheese' from Simple Stories for my Design team at The Scrapping Nook.
I love how it has such a Disney theme, so I had to go way back to my trips to Disney World 10 years ago! It was so much fun creating these layouts!

lighting wasn't good for this one...

Father's Day Card

I'm doing a swap for masculine cards, and thought it would be perfect to do a Father's Day card. My mom found a piece of fabric so I decided to make a shirt card. I just cut the top and folder it over to make a collar. Then added some buttons and a little pocket. I stamped 'dad' with Stampin' Up's  Sweet Shoppe alphabet set. Then finished it off with a cute little 'hi' wooden pin from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Honeycomb 3x3 cards

I had some scraps left from my Mama-razzi papers, so I made up these cute little 3x3 cards using the Honeycomb embossing folder from Stampin' Up! To make the cute honeycombs on design paper, just emboss that too and cut them out...super easy and it really makes an impact.

Self Portrait - April Design Team - Day 5

Here's my fifth layout for The Scrapping Nook's Design team week. The base is Bo Bunny's Double Dot  in Decaf Vintage. All other papers are from my featured Mama-Razzi2 line from Bo Bunny.  Also from that line I used the tag from the Dimensional stickers, and the chipboard swirl.

The burlap rose is from Maya Road, as well as the mini linen tag.  The cute little paper rose was in a pack from the $1.50 section at Michaels! A great find!

Willow Layout - April Design Team - Day 2

Here's my second layout for The Scrapping Nook's Design Team, featuring Bo Bunny's Mama-razzi2 line. I couldn't wait to use this stylin' photo of my cousins 1 year old Willow. I just love her orange striped outfit, it matched the papers perfectly!  I used multiple strips of the patterned papers, along with some buttons and chipboard stickers.

CLICK! - April Design Team Day 1

My first Diva Design team week for Scrapping Nook has started! The line I was given this month is called Mama-razzi2 from Bo Bunny. I love the colours! When I saw the paper with the vintage cameras, I knew right away that I wanted to use this photo of me and my camera recently shot by my brother. 

I used the chipboard banner stickers with the coordinating buttons and strung them with some bakers twine. 

The title letters are from the dimensional stickers, along with chipboard stickers all from the Mama-razzi2 line.

Had to throw this pic in for a laugh! Of course while I was in the middle of doing this post, Sugar Cat had to plop down right in front of the computer monitor and have a bath. LOL

Check back every day this week for more projects using this line of products!

Wedding Layout - Vintage Bliss

I'm totally in love with this Vintage Bliss line from Simple Stories! All the cute little details match perfectly to the decor details at my brother's wedding, from the mason jars with flowers to the burlap and wood. That watermelon cardstock background paper is already embossed it!

The mini clothespins with sentiments are from Little Yellow Bicycle, as well as the burlap hearts.
Burlap trim available by the yard at Scrapping Nook Online store.
