April Paper Crafters Library Projects

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was lovely and the weather was perfect! Can you believe we are in the third week of April already? That's why I have some fun beach projects to share with you today. Summer will be here before you know it!

This Discover New Horizons card takes a clean and simple approach to paper crafting. It's amazing what a bright colored ribbon can do for a project. Little splashes of color here and there make a dramatic effect when doing this type of card.

Plan on having a beach party? What a clever little take home bag this makes. Best part is, it takes very little time to put together.

We will all be taking summer pictures at some point. Why not begin making some tags for scrapbook pages now? Or even summer birthday tags for gift bags & boxes. This tag is sure to delight with it's whimsical waves. Learn how to make all three of these projects with a how to video and PDF for you to print out in the Paper Crafter's Library member's area.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today and I hope I have been able to give you some great ideas for your summer paper crafting projects. Till next time... happy crafting!

Hi everyone! Happy Easter!! I hope you woke up to a beautiful day. We sure did. Our weather is perfect today. Sun Shiny, upper 60's with a slight breeze. Ahhhh perfection! Great day for an Easter Egg Hunt. Which is what my family will be doing later today along with eating way too much food. heehee I am lucky that my family live close. All the cousins hang out, the adults drink and play games. Fun, fun, fun!

The card I have to share with you today is a card of friendship. It really came together pretty quick. But when you're using product like Webster's Pages it isn't hard. I love using the Martha Stewart leaf punch when using Prima flowers. It fills in all the open spots.

Welp I hope you all have a fabulous Easter and I hope that the bunny was good to you! Thanks for joining me today! Wishes for a great day!

Supply List:

Vanilla CS, Stamps, Ink: Stampin Up!; Patterned Papers, Stick Pin: Webster's Pages; Flowers, Brad: Prima; Pearls: Melissa Frances; Other: Ribbon, Martha Stewart leaf punch

Life is Bliss

Hey Guys!
How's everyone's weekend going? I hope well. I have a card to share with you all today. This card was showcased in Scrapbook News and Review for their Jan issue. I love how the paint on the edges adds such texture. The challenge was to use K&Co. products. The paper, lace, and buttons are K&Co.

I am in the process of closing down my other blog (Lilsweetpea's place) and starting to post over here. It doesn't quite feel like home yet. But it's getting there. Thanks everyone for following me over here. Wishes for a great day!
