Big Smiles

Big Smiles is the first layout from the Magical Workshop.  I can’t wait to print my pictures from our vacation for these layouts.  There are certainly a lot of big smiles!

I enjoy that there is no stamping as I have several customers who prefer to not stamp.  I just realized that I have the right page turn wrong!  Too funny.  Anyway, using the Magical Compliments, you can create the title and clusters.

This is the correct orientation of the right page:

Here’s my Pinterest layout for the layout:

Aren’t the cluster of compliments great.  You can use one like the arrow above.  Or add three or more like was done with the heart, star, and speech bubble and get something cute!  Supplies used are below.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you leave with some smiles!



Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone!  What a blessing we live in the USA.  When I look at the World News, I am even more grateful.

4th of July 2

Here’s a card not celebrating the 4th per say, but the color and stars lend to the celebration of today.

After all the USA is fabulous to live in (consider your options or worst case scenerios).  It’s a fun card featuring the July SOM S1607 From the Notebook.

The stars come from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge which is retiring July 31, 2016!  I covered the stars with Stardust Stickles.

The tag and circle were cut from Cricut Artistry Collection.  I love not having to fussy cut!  I will stamp my tags and such while they are still on the Circut cutting mat.  I’ll place the mat on top of our Versamat which is flipped to the foam side for stamping.

I hope you have a safe, fun, and happy 4th of July! Thanks for stopping by creative corner of the internet!




From The Notebook

July brings us a new Stamp of the Month, S1607 From The Notebook.

From the Notebook is a great set which has many different uses.  While the initial art I’ll show you today features memory keeping, keep checking back to see the set used with cards and calendar keeping!  Here’s a great page:

This page is made with the Florence Paper Pack (see the end of the blog for materials used in these project).  Love how the tag has the notebook paper look on it for the journaling.  The file tab is added to the top of the picture with the “Date” stamp used along with one of the background stamps.  What a great way to add the date to the page.

It’s a set of 24 and the recommended My Acrylix® Blocks: 1″ × 1″ (Y1000), 1″ × 3½” (Y1002), 2″ × 3½” (Y1009), 4″ × 5″ (Y1012).  Block size is important to get the cleanest image (Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Talk to me about my Stamping 101 class.). Here is the stamp set:

My favorite part of this stamp set is that it’s Circut friendly!  It works with CTMH’s exclusive Cricut Cartridge Artistry!  The file tab can be added to anything.  The name tag used for any event and by changing the stamp pad color, you get a different look.   Tags for gifts or mixed media.  The little stamps for your calendar.  The uses are endless.  Here’s a great mini-album.

1607-sotm-01 wm

This album is personalized with the name tag and other images have been clustered together to create a dimensional, layered front to this album.  The pennant comes from the awesome Calypso Paper Pack to be featured next month!  The rose gold foil tape is awesome and looks so good along side of the white twine.

You can get this set only during July for $17.95 OR you can get it for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase!  Get your Magical WYW kit for $26.95 (you’ll get a colored copy of the WYW cutting instructions and assembly guide from me FREE as well as being able to attend the July 16, 216  CropTastic for FREE for the class from 12-3pm) and you are half way there!

Check back for more posts with this great stamp set!  Thanks for stopping by my creative corner of the world.
