Dreamin’ Big Layout

I can honestly say it has been a while since I have been able to find time to scrapbook.  I decided I needed to make the time so I did.  I am in love with the Dreamin’ Big paper pack and it worked perfectly with my photos.

I had fun with these cute dragon flies, here is a closer look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #235 ~ Dreamin’ Big

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #235 we are challenging you to combine to use the Dreamin’ Big Color pallet.  Our usual challenge is to use “all and only” the featured colors, however, ten colors to combine are quite a challenge! So, for this challenge we are asking you to use at least 4 of the colors (excluding the neutrals) without adding new colors from the Dreamin’ Big Color palette.

I love this paper pack as it will be perfect for so many projects.  Today I am sharing a birthday card I created using the cut bugs.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #235 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday March 23, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Since we are approaching spring break for a lot of people and many will head to the beach, I was inspired to use the Swirly Shells.

For this card I used Colonial White cardstock for the background.  I then took Sea Glass, Chrystal Blue and Glacier to make the water side.  I created the sand look with Dessert Sands, Champagne and Cashmere using a sponge.  I then watercolored the shells.  I used Sea Glass glitter paper and Kraft cardstock.
