My LAST Digital Delights Post :(

I should clarify...it probably won't be my last ever post using Digital Delights by Louby Loo images...but it is my last post as a member of Wendy's Design Team! I cannot believe my term is up...how quickly time flies when you have great images to work with. So I thought I'd create a cheerful goodbye card today using one of my favorite images Laid Back Lucy. I added the sentiment in Word... "CHEERS" to Wendy and the Digital Delights team. Thanks for having me on board :)

As a side note...would you believe I bought this Echo Park designer paper TODAY? I mean really...I don't think I've ever used any supply quite that fast (unless it was adhesive and I'd run out LOL).

Birthday Fishes



Here's the card I was SUPPOSED to feature during the PMS Blog Hop for the July release... This is Jill, one of the new Beautiful Day Fairies. I've been holding on to this one little piece of plaid paper for a while...I just knew the perfect card was coming along and I finally found it. This blue & yellow combo just looks so summery to me. I love that Jill comes with a matching sentiment...and it's placed right where you see it here, so you can use them together AS IS, or cut it out and use it elsewhere.

Magical Mermaid

Yes, yes, I know....two weeks in a row with the mermaid...but I just have soooo many ideas for her! Isn't she lovely with her little happy fish friends? The mermaid, happy fish and sentiment are all from the Under the Sea set at Digital Delights by Louby Loo and the frame is from the Postage Stamps and Postcards set. Don't forget to check out this week's Delightful Challenge, too!

If you're already starting to get antsy about your Christmas cards, you've come to the right blog today! Paper Makeup Stamps is sponsoring the Christmas Card Challenge this week. Make a Christmas card and play along for your chance to win a $15 shopping spree at the PMS Store! Maybe you'll pick up this fabulous Moody for Holly?

My papers today are from the BG Jovial line...I FINALLY got some...on clearance LOL. I can't just buy stuff when it's new I have to wait until it practically out of date and on sale! And of course the image is stamped on Paper Temptress' Cryogen White...I've run out and just had to order more! The layout is for Sweet Sunday Sketch 126.

Digital Delights Day

I just love these Free Standing Pop Up Cards. Once you start making them, you just can't stop! This one features stamps from the Under the Sea digital stamp set from Digital Delights by Louby Loo. To give it extra dimension, I cut the leaves of the seaweed apart and curled them, and I added some extra seaweed from the background image, too. 

You MUST see my inspiration for this project... THIS amazing project on the Digital Delights Blog.

All papers are from Paper Temptress: Poison Ivory Iridescent for the images, and Pool Treasures for the base.

PMS Sneak Peek Day 4


It's another day full of sneak peeks at the July release for Paper Makeup Stamps...are you LOVIN' it so far? Today we have something a little different to share with you. Katie has designed some frames to go with our fabulous wordart.

I've paired one of the new frames from "Framed" with the Be Counted word art. You might recognize this one as a Friday Freebie from a couple of weeks ago...well now it is available in rubber for those who prefer that. There are two other frames included in this set, so make sure you check it out when it's released! Don't forget to check out what the other Makeup Artists have done with this set...head on over to the blog to see.

My layout today is for the Mojo Monday challenge. All the papers except the flower print are from Paper Temptress: Amethyst Mica/Metallic, Double Duty Lilac (the base), Vintage Silver Lustre for the sentiment. The Silver Lustre actually looks more pearl than silver and it takes printer ink absolutely perfectly...dried instantly! The dark purple ribbon is also from Paper Temptress (not just for papers you know!) 3/8 inch reversible satin

PMS Sneak Peek DAY 2


Can YOU BELIEVE it is July 4th already??? I am stunned, actually. I don't know where the Spring went...I don't think we actually had one here. This weekend was the first time we've had two days of nice, sunny weather in a row since last fall! Since it's now July, the PMS team is celebrating a new release with a week of festivities on our blogs. This is day 2 of the sneak peeks, so if you missed yesterday, make sure you check out the PMS Blog!


My project today features wordart from the Be Still sentiment set. I wanted to keep the card fairly simple to focus on the message, so not a lot of bells & whistles here, but I think the flowers (from Recollections) and the swirlies (from Heartfelt Creations) behind the sentiment just set it off. 

Ok...enjoy your July 4th if you're in the USA... and have a good day back to work if you're in Canada LOL.

Paper Temptress Fancy Folds


I have two fancy fold cards to share today featuring Paper Temptress cardstocks and papers. First up is a swing card:


This card base is made with Double Thick Crystal Clear and stamped with Stazon Black. The inside panel uses Cryogen White and Eclipse Black. You can find a tutorial for this card at Splitcoaststampers.com here. These images are from Inkadinkado & TPC Studio.


Here is my Standing Pop-up Card. This one features Stardreams Punch as the base, Cryogen White for the image & sentiment, and Gold Sparkle (I know it just looks yellow in the picture but the sparkle on this card is amazing!) for accents. I made this one for here, but also for the Gallery Idol competition at Paper Crafts Connection...so wish me luck! you can find a tutorial for this card at Splitcoaststampers.com here. The lovely Maya Fairy, sentiments & flowers are from Paper Makeup Stamps.
