I absolutely love these pinwheels! There are so many wonderful things you could do with them. I decided to create a card using the pinwheels.

May Pinwheels - Celebrate_0019_edited-1

When I was deciding on papers my mind immediate went to red and blue for colors.  I have also seen a lot of cool layouts using the wood grain paper from the Dakota paper pack.  So I know my color choices – Barn Red, Pacifica, Whisper and Dakota.  Using my Silhouette I cut the pinwheels and sentiment frame.  I used bakers twine to wrap the sticks to add dimension to the  card.

Here is a list of supplies used:

  • Dakota Paper pack  X7157B
  • Grey wool Bakers twine  Z1701
  • Pewter brads Z1366
  • Pinwheels Stamp Set S1305
  • Barn Red Stamp pad Z2104
  • Pacifica Stamp pad Z2192

This are now featuring artwork from the Spring / Sumer 2013 catalog and this month we will be showcasing the For Always Papers.

If you have come her from Stephanie’s Blog then you are in the right spot.  Unfortunately we are the only two participating this month. I hope you enjoy the creations.


For Always page kit 4 - Version 3 For this two page layout I use Ruby and Whisper cardstock in conjunction with the For Always paper.  I love the new fabrics that match this line.  I used them to create the flowers. I also love the new black assorted buttons they have a bit of glitter to them.

I also created a couple of cards using the Happy Couple stamp set

November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop!  

This month we are featuring the paper from the Dakota Paper Packet.

If you have come here from Stephanie Feist, then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Jen Patrick.

I really like this Dakota paper the first thing that came to mind was it was very boyish with all the blues. However, the more I started looking at it it is more rugged but since I am more of a tom boy at heart it could be used for a lot of different layouts.  I happen to have one we were on vacation with my nephews and we stopped to take photos and feed one of the horses.

For this layout I used the Wrangler Assortment and the grey wool bakers twine for accents.  I used the Barn Red, Pacifica, Whisper and black card stock  The “horsing around” was cut using my Cameo. I will offer this page as a page kit. The page kit will not include the Wrangler Assortment or the Bakers twine, but it will have the tittle cut out for you $7

I also made a second layout with the Dakota Paper. For this layout I used Whisper, Pacific,and Barn Red card stock. I also used the stamp set Rugged Dude as I love the denim pocket. I used Pacific and black ink.  For accents I used the Wrangler Assortment and the tiny black sparkles to make the rivets pop on the page. I am offering this layout as a page kit (it does not include the Wrangler Assortment, the tiny black sparkles or the tittle letters) the stamping will be done for you and the cost is $8

Now hop on over to Jen Patrick and check out her wonderful designs.
