Imaginisce Release: Hippity Hoppity

Hard to think about Easter/Spring when it is a week before Christmas, but what the heck!

This line has some cute stamps, and titles to make completing your pages fast... and the bird prints and bird cages die cuts was my favorite, apparently. But I will say I am disappointed that there is nothing in the line that says "Easter".

So here is what I did:
I got my orange and purple mist out and pulled the sprayer out of the bottle and then spattered the paper.
And I love to use journaling as a aspect of the "design triangle" that stands along... plus I love to journal.

This is just a simple LO I put together. I did add some foam dots to the patterned paper and flowers to add some dimension.

And lastly-this little kite stamp was screaming out to me to have some simple paper piecing added to it. I am not one for fussy, and this is a simple card with a simple sentiment.
Now head on over to the Imaginisce blog for a chance to win some free Hippity Hop for yourself!

Scrapbook Circle December: Note to Self

I know I have said it before, but I LOVE this kit! I really feel like there is SOOO much to work with! I am not done with these three layouts! Not by a long shot!

Watch for my features on the Scrapbook Circle blog-and GET yourself a kit!
Local girls-get the kit, crop with me, and you can have my layouts to use for inspo just like the "old" days. (It hasn't even been a month, and us Scrapaganza croppers are lost with out Scrapaganza to gather to!!)

The paper from October Afternoon with the circles, was screaming to me it needed punched out and sewn into a banner. :) Sewing it down, instead of just adhering it allowed me to then bent the little banners up for dimension... Banners. They are still going strong. And I can't say I don't like 'em.
Now for this 8 1/2 x 11, I used the paper strip I had left from punching out the banners, and I backed it with another pattern. I LOVE this picture of us from vacation last year. So us. It was taken last minute on our last day, because I almost forgot to take a family shot of us together on the beach.
LOVED the addition of the corrugated cardboard in the kit! I used it in the circle.
And the last one for today-I just LOVE the pieces of the Chaps line from American Crafts. The chevron is wonderful, I think!
More cardboard, and I outlined each patterned paper with gray...
Don't these tags work wonderfully with the paper?? :)
Alright! Thanks for stoppin' by! Be sure to hit the Scrapbook Circle website to get your kit and the blog for daily ideas!!
