Hey friends! So I made this card with the Zen Florals stamp set and created a little wreath out of a few of the stamps in black. I fussy cut the wreath out and centered it on top of my Horizontal Stripes Die Cut. I added a few stamps along the top left and bottom right edges and made the sentiment flag using the Not Too Shabby stamp set. A mini clothespin and some gold string added a few finishing touches!

Hey everyone! I have a few more tags to share with you today! I absolutely love making pretty packaging and making tags are some of my favorite things to create. I put these lovely little things together using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Free Spirit Collection.

Happy Monday!! Today I have a Maggie Holmes Bloom scrapbook layout for you. I took a tip from Ali Edwards the other day and decided to make a layout from a photo that was completely random… but it was begging me to do something with it! The photo is from my daughter’s 2nd birthday (which was a few years ago) and I have always loved the expression on her little face in this photo.

I whipped out some paints for the background and matched the colors with some of the colors in the Bloom collection as well as in the photo.

Hello dear readers! Yesterday was my birthday and I had SO MUCH FUN digging into my craft room and just relaxing in my sweatpants and listening to music and creating! Basically the best birthday ever. (Shout out to my awesome hubby, kids, & friends for making the whole day extra special!! Love you!! XOXO) And as a result I have some super fun Pink Paislee C’est La Vie gift tags for you today!

I made 4 of these babies and just had a total blast with the products. This is one incredibly designed collection. It’s not my typical style either, which made for a fun challenge and interesting final product!

So apparently I gravitate towards the word “hello.” Haha. I have been patiently waiting for the gorgeous Free Spirit Collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio to arrive at my doorstep all the way from Australia and it’s FINALLY HERE!!! I haven’t stopped staring… playing… dreaming… creating… with it since it got here and let me tell you: It’s just as incredible as you would think it would be! I am in love. πŸ™‚ I have 3 “hello” cards for you today and many more to come!! The first is above, “hello you make me smile” using a cutout from one of the pattern papers. This floral paper in the background is my favorite I think. I wish I could wallpaper my whole house with this print (although hubby probably wouldn’t be down for that). πŸ˜‰

The next card is using the striped frame & floral cutout from the ephemera pack. Aren’t these colors just dreamy?

The last card is accenting another of my favorite papers from this collections and I die cut it with a die from Papertrey Ink. All of the flowers in the background of the photos are also part of the collection!! Do yourself a favor and check out this collection here.
