Bursting Window!

A friend of mine took me to a scrapbooking store in Santa Clarita recently called Scrapbooking Made Simple. We were lucky enough to go when they had a Make-n-Take table set up and got to make these beautiful cards using some Tim Holtz goodies!!
 Here's a close-up of the 'bursting window' (I don't know what it's called, but that sounds really cool!!!)
When I got home, I couldn't wait to try it on my own...
This is such an easy technique I'm sure you'll be seeing more of it on my future cards!!

Clean & Simple Monochromatic

I was Blog-hopping not too long ago during the OWH 'CAS!' BlogSkip and got a little side-tracked, but found a Blog with a beautiful monochromatic card (not from the Skip) that I just HAD to try! Unfortunately I forgot what Blog it was :( but here's what I came up with.....

I used my Cuttlebug to emboss around the edges and added some tiny pearls. The sentiment is from SU.

This card will go in a pack I'm giving away for getting 150 'LIKES' on my Rainbows N Butterflies FaceBook page!! If you haven't seen it, please click on the side link and look around!!

Back To School Cards

My cousin called me a couple weeks ago and asked if I could make some Back To School cards for her kids, one for Kindergarten, and one for 1st grade. I had just gotten some really cute digis from and couldn't wait to use them!!

Hope it helps get the kids excited for school!!!

ATC - Any Theme

This month our ATC theme is anything we want it to be!  I found this beautiful paper at Michael's and decided to try a Victorian style 'friend' card.

I went 'shopping' at my mom's house and found some paper doilies, and made the flowers with my friend's Big Shot. I also added some tiny pearls, and the sentiment and tag are from SU. Each card is just a little different because I changed the flowers up...

If you make ATC's, please leave me a link to your page... I love seeing other ideas!

Clean & Simple (CAS)

Operation Write Home is having a Blog-Skip today with a Clean and Simple theme...

Here's the card I was inspired to make after seeing all the beautiful cards. I actually made a card similar to this last year for Valentine's Day and was told it was a little too simple, so I added to that one.... but for the CAS theme, I think it's perfect!!
Hope you enjoyed the Skip!!!

My Pink High-Heel

As promised, here's an update on my scrappy happenings!

The 1st thing on my list is continued from my last post.....My pink high-heel! (Allison, you had it right!)

I made this with my Scrappinladyz MeetUp group last week and I just love it! The shoe was cut from a Cricut cartridge (I think it was the new Princess cart, but don't hold me to that!) and embellished with the Roxie CTMH paper pack and other CTMH pins, rhinestones, and flowers...

There are so many beautiful ideas you can use with this, but my favorite was to put some business cards in it for my boutique tables!

The next thing I am so excited to show you is a Recipe Book I made at a different Scrapbook Class! This was also with a MeetUp group, Stampin and Scrappin Girlz.
Most of this cute little paperbag book was embellished with Cricut images (again, I have no idea which one! But it has to do with Hawaiian/Summer stuff!). It has LOTS of pockets for recipes, which we each contributed and swapped! 

Hope you enjoy these and are able to get some crafty ideas!!
