Little Nell Layout

This holiday season KaiserCraft continues to release must have vintage Christmas papers.  OH MY!!!  I love all of them, but this is one that is near and dear to my heart, Turtle Dove.

The photograph is of my grandmother Nell when she was a little girl.  I'm so lucky to actually have photos like this but also to have such great collections that blend perfectly.  

When I received this collection from KasierCraft it was so early they hadn't even gotten in their embellishments that coordinated, so everything on this layout was made from their paper and their paper alone plus some beautiful dies.  I precision cut, sewed, colored, die name it but a I can tell you a lot of love and work when into this piece.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

I used Cheery Lynn Dies on this layout and it qualifies for this weeks challenge: Frame It

Layered Card for Scrap-Mart

Did you know majority of this card is solid cardstock...there is just a bit of designer paper used around the base and one of the labels.  The rest is either embossed or stamped and colored, which really helped me achieve the look I was going for.  

All the stamps are from JustRite including the beautiful green and aqua fronds background that I colored in with markers.  I also finished the card off with a homemade charm of pearls. Would you expect anything else from me.  

Here is my complete list of products used and the links to where you can pick them all up at SCRAP-MART

This Card qualifies for the following challenges:

Tap, Tap, Tap

Today I wanted to share a card I created using some of Prickley Pears new Halloween stamps.  Can you believe it's already that time of the year again...time does fly.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations this week.  

Also did you know Prickley Pear is having a design team call.  Yeap that's right, my year is almost over and I've enjoyed it so much, but it's time to see some fresh faces on the team and they might just be looking for you.  Go to their blog to find out all the details.
