Tis the Season for " LOVE"

Hexagon's are big, BIg, BIG this year, so I thought the adorable collection " Forget-Me-Not " from KaiserCraft would be a great way to feature some Hexagon's.  This simple card really pops and I love the way the patterned paper really shows off.

I outlined all the shapes with a Uniball white pen...that made them pop all the more.  Also the stitching around the card is faux with the Uniball pen.

December Get Away with Tropicana

My favorite new release from KasierCraft has to Tropicana.....I adore everything about it.  This is a layout I created for the Saturday Sketch.  I had snapped a picture of my feet in the surf of the beach and couldn't have chosen a better collection to feature my little piggies. LOL

Be sure to participate in KaiserCraft's Saturday Sketches...they will give away a whole collection of your choice if you win and sketches are always a good way to get those creative juices flowing.

Scor-Pal and Core'dinations Even for Layouts

I use Core'dination's Paper all the time so when I heard that Scor-Pal and Core'dinations were teaming up for a week, I was in heaven.  So I literally took it there with this prayer layout I created with a library card pocket, ready to hold my requests and thoughts.  

Other products Used: My Mind's Eye Paper, KaiserCraft paper blooms, Cheery Lynn Dies, Glitter, Card Stock, Foam Tape

Step One: Cut a piece of designer card stock 9 x 4 1/2

Step Two:  Using your Scor-Pal score paper at 1/2 inch and 4 inch . 

Step Three: Turn paper and score at the five inch mark to create your fold. 

Step Four: From the shorter side cut away the 1/2 inch scored strip to the center score line.  Also you can angle your corners on the remaining edges. 

Step Five: Apply Scor-Pal Tape to the tabs that will fold over.  Be sure to not apply the tape to far up where  it would stick out past the fold up. 

Step Six : Fold over and crease down with your Scor-Tool for a perfect finished Library Card/ Pocket.  Then just apply to your card or layout as desired. 

I must brag a bit about the Core'dinations Sand it Gadget.  I already had some sanding blocks and files but man does this little tool do the trick on Core'dinations Paper.  It was wonderful for sanding the whole page quickly and easily.  I really love it.
