Dream Pop Thank You Cards

For all of you who purchased the Dream Pop paper pack when it was available a few months ago here are a few cards I designed using this paper.  I realized I had used up almost all of my thank you cards so with Christmas here I knew I would need some more.  So when I was looking for inspiration the Dream Pop paper is what called to me.

For this card I used a pinwheel die to make the pinwheel.  I used the Juniper Sparkle & Shine Washi tape for the bottom.  The Thank you is from the Banner Wishes B1438 stamp set.  I also incorporated a few of the Aqua dots for some interest.

For this card I used my 2″ circle punch to make circles and then positioned those circles back through the punch to make two pedals.  Each circle will make two pedals. I then used the top strip from some of the Dream Pop papers and one of the patterns to make the strip at the bottom of the card. The thank you and circle stamp is from a retired stamp set Tag the Occasion.  Here it are some of the variations I created:

September Card Workshop

All I can say is how did it get to be September already?  Time seems to be flying by with no end in sight as the holidays will be upon us.  I am not complaining as I love this time of year but there never seems to be enough time to get all the craft projects I want to complete finished….

I have been running a bit behind on completing my September Card Workshop cards, but I have now finished them.

I decided I would challange myself this week to complete the final card for my September workshop and base it on this stamp set and use the MOJO Monday Sketch 309.

Here is my creation based on this sketch:

Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  The blogger in front of me is Melinda Everitt.   The Stampers with an Attitude are all excited to show you a little Art with an Attitude, so here we go…..

In March CTMH put out a wonderful video showing how to create a mini album.  I have been wanting to try one myself,  so I finally embarked on it.  The album I am creating is a little gift for my son’s godparents.   What I love about this album is the fact you can use all different papers.   For this album I used papers from the following collections Dream Pop, Later Sk8r, Avonlea, Stella, Dotty for you, and Footloose along with cardstock.  Although I wanted to show off the entire album I have only selected a few photos.

Mini Album- Gavin CoverFor the cover I used mostly the Later Sk8r paper with Outdoor denim.  I used the dimensional banners with blue epoxy bubbles.

Gavin mini album pg1

For this page you can see the great textured cardstock from the Dream Pop paper along wit one of the prints.   I love the Zoology stamp set and use it for my accents.

Gavin mini album pg4

For this page I used the adorable Bugs & Hugs stamp set.
Gavin mini album pg5

This page used retired papers but the blended so well with the color I was using for this album. It is paper form Stella and Footloose.  I also use the Footloose WOTG stamp set.Gavin mini album pg6

I did use solid cardstock on a couple of the pages to break up the patterns. On this layout I used Pear to complement the Later Sk8r paper. I used the Look Who’s stamp set.Gavin Mini album pg7

For the center of the album I liked the concept of creating a envelope, I will use this to include additional journaling.Gavin mini album pg9I really enjoyed creating this album and I hope you will try one too.  It was really easy to create and so much fun to mix up all the different pattern papers from retired and current papers.
