Julie Nutting and Some Prima Goodness!!!

I attended a class at EMI Scrapbooking a while back taught by Prima Educator Delaina Burns. Check the blog, she has another really great class coming up soon! I was lucky enough to win a goodie pack and it contained a cute little Julie Nutting stamp, some paper, a mini-album a few more goodies. I finally got to play around with them and LOVE them!!!!! I wanted to share what I created!

First up I used the darling "Adara" Julie Nutting stamp set to make 3 tags. I made a pink, blue and lavendar theme. It was so much fun mixing and matching the little outfits. I chose to use one paper for the skirt and collar and another for the top! I also matched the little socks! It was fun to stamp and cut the little pieces, it was like playing paper dolls when I was little!!!

I added some bling and some mixed Prima blooms (some even very old from my stash). I also used a few miscellaneous stamps and some ribbon. Then added a chippie word for each!

This is the one that I used some blue on. I colored each little girl with my Prismacolor markers. I really want some of the Prima watercolor markers!!!!!!

The little lavendar is my favorite, since purple is my favorite color!!! I popped each little doll up with some foam dots for dimension.

Next I made a card using the cute little Christmas stamp. I stamped individual stars and candy pieces and colored them with my markers. I made a little banner with twine and pop dots. I also used a few small blooms around the little Christmas tree! I used pastel colors because that's what I think of when I think of "sugarplums"!!!!!!

Here are a couple of close ups. I did a little "faux stitching" with my markers as well for a home-made look!

I also got the little dollhouse album! This is ADORABLE!!! I covered the front with some of the Julie Nutting paper and only added a few small blooms at the windows! I also stamped a few vines randomly on the house! I haven't finished this one yet, I'm going to stamp some blank girls and cut them out, and also some mixed outfits on squares and put in the little pouches in front. Then I'm going to draw some scenes on the white pages. That way my Granddaughter can decorate the little dolls in whatever outfit she likes and place them onto the scenes! I thought this would be a fun little rainy day activity for her!!!!

 I also got this month's "Special Delivery" box and let me tell you it is crammed with goodness, gorgeous papers, beautiful blooms and more! I've had so much fun playing with this stuff!!! I've created three layouts so far!!!

This first one is pictures of the sweet little flower girls at our daughter's wedding! The papers I used are from the Anna Marie and Optimist collections. The work really well together!

I cut a couple of the little dresses from the paper and used pop dots for dimension. Added some pearl accents as well.

Here are some of the gorgeous blooms that were included! I added the little blue one and used one of the flower centers included! I also used some Alphablend alphas that I already had.

Here are a couple more of the little dresses along with one of the flair buttons.

For this one of our sweet little Granddaughter I wanted to pull a lot of the pinks! So I used a piece of the Anna Marie paper for the background. Stamped some leaves and made some little tags.

Here are some close-ups for this one. I love the flowers, the pink and aqua colors together. I also used a marker and colored the Alphablend letters for the word "precious".

I also stamped a banner from the Delivery Box with pink ink and wrote her initials with a pink marker.

These pages were so much fun, I just love these colors!!! Now I have a couple more with more of the Optimist collection papers to share!

I cut out the little frames and put the photos in them. I popped them up with foam dots. 

I did some journaling and doodling with a white gel pen and cut some of the little words from the paper and popped them up too.

A couple more close-ups!

I had so much fun creating these projects! I can't wait to see what's in the Special Delivery box for next month!!! Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your time!!!

Cest"Magnifique April Kit

 I wanted to share my projects for what will be my last post with Cest'Magnifique! I have enjoyed my time, but need to push myself to new things. This kit was however, my favorite!!! It was packed with gorgeous LemoCraft goodies and pretty pastel colors!!! I had so much fun with this one!!! I will truly miss Dana and the rest of the incredible ladies on the team!!!

Now, for the projects! This first page is our precious new Granddaughter Ava! We are blessed to have two beautiful Granddaughters now!!  

Here are some close-ups of the details! I did some faux stitching to match the look on the paper already. I love the chippie frame and wanted to keep it soft so I embossed it with a white pearl powder from WOW Embossing.

LemonCraft has some gorgeous florals as well, I just love the soft colors!!! I added some pearls for accents.

These cute little alphas are Prima Alphablends! They are really versatile!!! I just love that precious little face!!!!

This layout features a photo of me with one of our furry babies, my sweet Harley!!! I wanted to pull some of the more vibrant colors and blooms from the kit. I used blooms from the flower add-on kit as well. And some Kaisercraft die cuts. 

Some of the Prima blooms and close-ups!

Showing some of the cute die-cuts in the kit.

This is our our other precious Granddaughter Kinsey Grace!!! I wanted to do this one soft and pretty and pink also!!! I love the little cupcake wrapper used as a partial circle!! I also did a faux stitched circle around the main photo!!! 

Close-up of the little cupcake wrapper!

More faux stitching in the little corner cluster here.

This last layout is our daughter. I used more of the darker shades in the kit for this one. I love the pinks and the wood look to the paper!!!

Anna Griffin's new Cricut content!!!!!!!

Anna just had a huge Cricut show on HSN  and featured some new Cricut content. Anna's Garden, Anna's Flourishes and Anna's Monograms. These have a variety of really gorgeous images to choose from. I am going to share the projects that I created with the Anna's Garden and Anna's Flourishes.

First up for this page the pink diecut background, floral and swirl elements were done with it. Also the tag with the journaling! Yep, the journaling too!!! These were done in sets, a layout and card using the same elements.

Next up I used the gorgeous butterflies. But the diecut, flowers and vines were also cut from the content!!!!! The mat for the photo and the journaling and tag on the layout as well!!!

This one features some of the beautiful roses. The background again also!

I chose brighter colors for this set! You can see how beautiful the elements are. And they cut really easily! I love the mums and butterflies especially!!!!

This is a photo of one of the layouts and cards together!!! The set looked awesome with all of the creations from the design team! There are so many beautiful things in the content of these sets!!! Please make sure to check them out! I know you will love them!!!

This was done with more roses. I used lots of pink for this one!!! Aren't the designs gorgeous?!?!?!
