Sunshine Layout

Hi Everyone! It's official...I'm finally sharing one of my scrapbook layouts on my blog! I created my first scrapbook page a long long time ago in high school. The love of scrapbooking lead me down the paper crafting road and eventually I found stamping and card making. It feels great to finally come full circle. :) My page is also being featured on the Penny Black blog today!

This is a page of my daughter when she turned 11 months old. I did a photo shoot of her every month from birth to a year old. I generally take a lot of pictures of my kids but I'm glad I have these milestones along with journaling to keep in her memory book. Now I just need to finish scrapping all of them!

I love this butterfly from Penny Black. I colored it with Copics then added Glossy Accents to the large circles. I also cut between the wings and added a pop dot under the largest wing for added dimension.

I stamped these sweet flowers to complete my outdoor scene. I used the same colors as the butterfly to balance the colors across the page. As you can see I stamped the largest flower twice and offset it slightly. Glossy Accents were added to the red flowers.
Oh and how could I forget. Penny Black has a great alpabet set called Kate Text. I used the lower case set to stamp "you are my" and the date.

So do you want to see more layouts? I'd love to hear from you!

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !

Mama Elephant March Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! I am so excited to share the new stamp set Ella & Friends with you! There are so many fun images to choose from in this set that all centers around the BEST elephant stamp ever. ;) I started my scene by stamping the elephant, then I masked in the bunny and bubble blower. Finally, I stamped the bubbles, puddle and splashes. I was SO fun to create. I colored the images with Copics and added a little ink to complete my scene. I trimmed it down to fit inside of the Instalove Creative Cuts and stamped the sentiment. I know you'll agree that stamping this set is super fun but first... To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede.
