You may be saying those colors remind me of something… Well  you are right it is the Wanderful paper pack.  When I sat down to design, I thought about using the paper pack but then decided to go a different route.  I decided to use Artfully Sent (as I have not played with it in a while) and go with an Easter theme.

Color Dare #133 ~ catscrapbooking.comI had so much fun mixing papers and colors that I got a little carried away and created three cards total.  Here are the other two.

More Lollydoodle…

I know you may think Easter is behind us but I have been wanting to finish one more Easter layout.  I finally had the chance this past week, so I could finish 2012’s Easter festivities.   Since I designed the Easter Day layout with Lollydoodle I figured it would only be fitting that the MOMS Club Easter Egg Hunt should be done in the same paper.

Egg Hunt

I have to say that this is one of my favorite paper packs from this Idea Book.  Make sure you get yours if you have not  already as they may run out before this Idea Book ends in July 31st.

Easter Pop-up Card

I am really loving the Lollydoodle paper pack.  It is so bright and colorful and perfect for spring.  Since I have been in a Easter crafting roll how about an adorable pop-up card?  What about two???

Now for the cards..

I am just so happy with the way these turned out, and they are so much fun to make.  I may even have to try a third using the third B&T paper in this pack so I have a complete trio.  Stay tuned as I may just have to do that 🙂

Lollydoodle Easter

I really can not believe Easter is just a little over three weeks away.   When I was looking through the paper packs, Lollydoodle just called out to me for an Easter layout.  I just love all the bright colors and fun patterns.  Here is what I came up with.

Easter Layout

I used my Silhouette to cut all the designs most I had to modify to fit my needs.  Here is a close up of the title.

I used this layout for my 2013 Easter photos.  I actually had more photos then the layout shows so I incorporated two flip flaps.  One is a 4×4 flip flap and the other is a 4×6 flip flap.  Unfortunately I have not mastered photographing layouts in the page protectors,  I cannot eliminate the glare.  I apologize for the not so great photos but you will get the idea.

March Card Workshop

Every month I hold a workshop where you can come complete a scrapbook layout which is usually the layout I feature on the Roxybond Scrapper Team Blog Hop. But I also have a card workshop that same night.  I really had no idea I would enjoy making cards as much as I have.  I keep finding all these cool techniques.  So my challenge to myself is to try at least one new technique for the workshop.  This way I learn something new and so do the participants.  This months new technique is Iris Fold Card.  I have been seeing them all over Pinterest, so I took the plunge.

Since Easter is just around the corner and CTMH has a very cute Easter Wishes stamp set, I could not resist.  I actually thought this stamp set would work as a slider style card.  Here is the end result:

For this next card I was also inspired by Pinterest.  I had seen these woven cards and realized it was actually a die by Simon Says Stamp.

And my last workshop card was also Pinterest inspired (HaightMark Scrapbooking) using the Later Sk8r paper and Perfect fit birthday stamp set.
