Traveler's Journal

Hello! Today I have a fun project to share created with some new products from Momenta's Explorer Journal line.  I will be using my journal as a traveler's journal for documentation.  I love the fun, sparkly cover with the functionality of the inserts.
I used the DCWV Stateside stack to cover the insert pockets and die cut a banner with a Momenta die and layered it with some Momenta stickers which were also used on the tags inside the insert.  All of the tags are from the DCWV Maps, Text, Ledgers stack and were tucked in place with some Momenta Star Clips. This insert will be so perfect for keeping all of my travel mementos organized.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Celebrate Card

Hello!  Today I have a fun and festive card to share created with some dies from Gina Marie Designs.  I used the hexagon dies to cut out the design on solid white card stock and then placed the patterned hexagons into the solid frame.
The sentiment is from a stamp set I picked up at Joann craft store in the $2 product section.  The font is so fun I couldn't resist it.  The finishing accent on my card was a few coordinating enamel dots.

Happy Day Tags

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a set of yummy tags created with the new Momenta Junk Food Cutting Template.  I must admit ice cream is one of my favorites so I was immediately inspired to use this fun die.
I used the Art-C Adhesive Stencil along with some Oxide Inks to create the background of my tag.  Next I used the Art-C Love, Hello, Thanks Die & Stamp Combo for the sentiment and tag.  The ice cream cones were popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  I finished off my tags with some Black Licorice Trendy Twine.

Hope Layout

Hello! Today I have another layout page to share which was created with the DCWV Rose Quartz stack. This 12x12 page is essentially my second page to another layout I had created.  I am loving the subtle colors in this stack and have used it for a few projects.
I used several different dies to cut out the various flowers, tags, banners and doily for my layout page.   The photo corners were punched with a Fiskars punch.  The arrow word title is a SVG file which was cut with my Cricut Explore.  A few scattered sequins and a bit of Totally White Trendy Twine were the finishing touches on my layout page.

Thank You Card

Hello and happy Monday!  Over the weekend, I gave my blog an updated look with cleaner lines.  I was trying to achieve a more sophisticated and easy to read style.  Please let me know what you think.  I'm sure it will be a work in progress.
For today's project, I used the Momenta "So Sweet" stamp set and some Tsukineko inks to stamp the images for the background of my card.  I did a bit of masking so the images could be layered in the different colors. Once I had my background created, I simply stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set.  A Momenta die was used to cut out the banner shape of the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Seagulls Card

Hello! Today I have a card to share which is definitely out of my comfort zone with all of the different inks I used.  I used the Seagulls Variety Die Set, Nested - Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies and Nested - Scalloped Stitched Rectangles all from Gina Marie Designs.
I created the background using lots of different Distress Inks watercoloring and blending until I achieved the look I wanted.  I layered the background with the sweet seagulls and stamped some cattails along the edges.  A few Sophisticated Gloss enamel dots were the finishing accents on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Smile Card

Hello!  Even though we have had a very mild Winter in California, I am more than ready for Spring which was the inspiration for this card.  I used the Momenta Flower Punch and Stamp set for the flowers on my card.  Two layers of flowers were used to create the dimensional flowers with a single layer flower tucked in behind.
A few bling stickers were added to the center of the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Momenta Best Friends stamp set.

Hello Darling Layout

Hello crafty friends, today I'm playing along with the DCWV Stack-a-holic challenge over on their Facebook page.  When I saw the sketch I was completely inspired to whip out a layout page.  I used the DCWV Hello Darlin' stack to create my 12x12 page.  I just love the adorable designs in this stack. It's definitely one of the stacks I've been hoarding.
I changed up the sketch just a bit to use the cut out tag for the title of my page.  I also fussy cut the typewriter and tiny envelopes and added them on some pop dots for dimension.  All of the flags were hand cut and layered with some punched flowers using 2 different Fiskars punches.  I accented my photo mat with a bit of Totally Lemon Trendy Twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

So Sweet Card

Happy Monday!  I have a bright and cheery card to share today created with the Momenta So Sweet stamp set.  The pineapples are just one of the fruit stamps on this stamp set.  I used 2 different colors of ink for each of the pineapples and then fussy cut them.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
The pineapples were slightly layered with the top pineapple popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  A few enamel dots and some Black Licorice Trendy Twine were the finishing touches on my card.

XOXO Treat Box

Hello crafty friends!  I am happy to be joining Die Cuttin' Divas as their guest designer this week! The challenge for this week is Valentine's Day.  I created a fun treat box for my project using the Momenta 12x12 Super Pad for the paper.  I love the festive design of the paper in the non-traditional colors.
 I started my project with the Momenta (Art-C) Gable Box Die & Stamp and cut out 2 pieces which were adhered with the Glue Dots Super Strength Adhesive.  This is my absolute favorite adhesive for my crafty projects.
Once my treat box was created, I die cut a couple of embellishments from the Momenta Cut & Emboss Arrows and Momenta Romance Cutting Templates.  The arrows were inked on the edges for a bit of dimension.
Grape Fizz Trendy Twine was the perfect coordinating color to tie a die cut key to the top of the box.  A bit more Glue Dots Super Strength Adhesive was used to add the arrow to the front of my treat box.
Head on over to Die Cuttin' Divas to join this weeks Valentine's Day challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderfully crafty day!
