Swirly Bird Disney Scrapbook Pages

Hello Everyone!  I am super excited to share these adorable scrapbook pages we made at my Scrapbooking Club this month featuring the Swirly Bird Stamp Set and the coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies (available as a bundle - SAVE 10%). 

I had so much fun designing these pages!  I picked the following colors from the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper:  Real Red, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Whisper White.  I chose to use Kraft Cardstock (133674) for the base.  I think it goes great with these bright colors. 

So much fun to make an element using the Swirly die-cuts!  I added two big heart die-cuts from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the smaller ones from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits

I really like the new Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper!  It's so colorful and so festive!!!  

How about the new Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and the coordinating Duet Banner Punch?  The stamp set has 53 Photopolymer stamps in the set.  Amazing!!!  Another new item Sprinkles Punch is so fun to add decorative pieces to anywhere:)

Shine On DSP Owl Graduation Card & June Events

Hello Everyone!  Here is an adorable graduation card we made at my Big Shot class last month.  This is another way to use the Shine On DSP.  The clouds pattern and the Sunburst die came together in a fun way to show off this multipurpose paper!!! 

Isn't he so cute???  I chose to use purple and gold (yellow) for my owl because they are the school colors for my son's high school.  I am happy to say we have survived this busy season having my oldest son graduate from high school.  Ever since we came home from the incentive trip to Europe, we had been non-stop! 

Not to worry - Port Angeles fans!!!  I did make this one for you.
