I am so very excited to share that I've been asked to return for a second term on the Spellbinders Design Team !!!

My style tends to be fun, clean with lots of layers! My current addiction are enamel dots....I get the urge to put them on everything I create ! I also love sewing on most of my projects .

This layout was the first one I designed for Spellbinders last Fall, it was published in the Scrapbooking and Beyond magazine. It will always be my favorite :)

My little Men
The boy in blue is Gabriel and in orange is Felix. xox , love them !!

These next 2 Spellbinders projects are in the current issue (September) of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine. It is my first time being published by this amazing magazine !

Hello and welcome blog friends ! I'm here today to share the project I created with the BRAND NEW Spellbinders In'Spire dies for the June Jamboree.

                You Make Me happy When Skies Are Grey

Here are the dies I used for my layout. I was inspired by the rain drop paper from Basic Grey, the My Mind's Eye title card and of course the super cute dies for my layout of Gabriel.

Umbrella Trio


To create this layout, prepare background layout as shown, 
then create title block as follows:

     Step one: Cut/emboss In'Spire Wellies in light blue paper.

    Step two: Cut/emboss Wellies "insert" in same paper.
                    Use Tool in One to separate paper from the die piece.

               Step three: Assemble Wellies.

Step four: Cut/emboss Umbrella in red/white patterned paper.

Step Five: Cut/Emboss one of the 3 Umbrella inserts in white cardstock and adhere with glue ,as shown.

Step six: Adhere Wellies and Umbrella to 3X4 (title) card.
Finish by adding embellishments.
