Hay There...


YAY! it is Friday and I am so ready for the weekend. The weather has been amazing and I am ready for some weekend fun. I don't know what we will do but my husband and I always seem to have fun... which is a good thing.

Today I am creating with all sorts of fun Lawn Fawn. I am mixing it all up, so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the Peekaboo Backdrop frame only on a piece of designer paper. I die cut the frame on a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes papers and I die cut again on LF Stripes 'n Sprinkles paper. 

Adhere the die cut frame to the card base using liquid glue and the negative parts from the other designer paper to the card using liquid glue. 

Stamp out all your fun images from the Hay There, Hayriders, Carrot Bout You and Veggie Happy stamp sets on white cardstock using black ink. Color the images using your favorite medium and die cut or fussy cut the images out. 

Create all your little scenes using liquid glue and foam tape. 

To finish stamp the sentiment on the card from the Hay There, Hayriders using black ink. 


Lots of stamping, coloring and fussy cutting because I did not have any of the coordinating dies. LOL With a pair of good little scissors and my reading glasses... I am good. 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and the sun is shinning.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Beach time….



Happy Wednesday blog friends.. It is already the 15th of May and I bet you all are getting ready for your summer vacations. This year is flying by so fast. But first let's enjoy the fun of summer. Today I am getting crafty with Waffle Flower Postage Collage Beach Days stencil. It just released and I snagged it up. I am all things beach, so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the Avery Elle Postage die on designer paper. This die cuts just the frame but hold on to it because that is what you see behind our scene. Set this part aside and let's move on.

Die cut the Waffle Flower Postage Collage Die on white cardstock and stencil the Postage Collage Beach Days stencil on the die cut. It lines up perfectly, all you have to do is to pick your colors and blend away. I then stamped one of the sentiments from the new Beach Tote Sentiments directly onto the background using black ink. I will list the colors below. 

Let's now adhere the die cut frame on the designer paper to the stenciled background using liquid glue. Because the large die is just a frame you will have to line it up where it can touch and glue those edges. Now add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to your card. 


That is it... so easy, right?  I just LOVE this stencil set. 

That is all for today.

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Pick one of the Just Because Daily Details sentiments and cut apart. This page has many tags, sentiments and fun designs to choose from. I added some foam tape to the back and added it to the left side of the card. 


Let's add some of the Just Because Ephemera Icons Butterflies. I picked three of them and added them to my card using foam dots just in the center, so you can fluff the wings. 


Such an easy card to create but so full of love with this sentiment and well who doesn't love butterflies... Right? 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 rectangle of the Dancin' Daisies backer yellow striped paper and add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to the center of the card. 

Pick another one of those Just Because Daily Details sentiments and trim it down to fit the center of the square we just added. Put more foam tape to the back and adhere it to the center of the square. 


To finish, let's add one of those pretty Just Because Puffy Stickers flowers to the O on the You. Don't you just love the shine? I do!

So many fun ways to use the Daily Details if you are creating Scrapbook pages or if you are a card creator like me... it is fun for all.

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a panel on white cardstock A2 size and stencil the new Pretty Pink Posh: Baby Words stencil. I used two blue inks for the stencil. Adhere your panel to your card base using liquid glue.

Die cut the large Eyelet Circles die on white cardstock. Leave the die in place after you die cut and add a little green and blue ink LIGHTLY on the lower half of the circle. Remove the die and see how fun the ink looks. Add your circle to the card using foam tape. 
 
Die cut the new Pretty Pink Posh Baby Rattle Shaker die on white cardstock. Use your inks to add the color to the handle. Die cut the large circle die again on white cardstock and then again with the small circle in the center. This will create the frame for the shaker. Add some ink to the circle frame. 

Die cut the large circle again on acetate and adhere it to the back of the circle frame. Now add some foam tape to the back of the circle frame but make sure you can not see the foam from the front so use thin foam tape. Now let's add some of those fun new Sweet Dream Shaker Beads and then adhere the white circle to close the shaker back. 

Add the handle and the decorative rattle scalloped border. Stencil the word BABY from the Baby Words stencil on the decorative part using blue ink. Add a few of those fun beads from the Sweet Dream Shaker Beads. Die cut the bow and adhere it to the handle and add more of those beads in the center of the bow. 

Stamp out these adorable images from the new Baby Basics stamp set on white cardstock using black ink and color them using your favorite medium. When it comes to the onesie I just stamped the strips using blue ink and then die cut all the images using the coordinating Baby Basics coordinating dies.  Add all your images to the scalloped circle. 

Finishing with the sentiment stamped from the new Sentiment Strips Occasions Stamp Set on white cardstock using black ink. Die cut the sentiment using the Pretty Pink Posh Sentiment Strips dies.

Hello Beach Time...


Welcome friends.. YES, I am ready for some beach time and I love watching the sunsets. These two sets went together perfectly.... so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a panel on kraft cardstock 4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to the center of the card base using liquid glue.

cut a white panel measuring 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 and stencil the Lawn Fawn Beach Sunset Stencils. I did not use the palm tree stencil just the sunset theme. It lines up perfectly so pick your sunset colors and stencil this fun designs. 

Die cut the Spellbinders Day at the Beach dies on colored cardstock and piece together your fun scene. I used foam tape here and there for little dimension when adding this scene to my card sunset background. Adhere this panel to the center of your card. 


I love that the sentiment is on the hat... what a fun set. I just got it but this set is older and I got it in the clearance event they had going on last month. I think you can still get it.

Bella Blvd Celebrates iNSD 2024....


Welcome friends... today is iNSD 2024 and Bella Blvd is celebrating with lots of Scrapbook fun.... plus a fun card by ME. Today I am showing you how to use your scraps when creating a card. 

BUT FIRST...
Head on over to Instagram and hop along... 
there is a prize that you will not want to miss your chance to win. 


YAY! for cards even when we are celebrating Scrapbooking. When scrapbooking you always have scraps and we can find ways to create with them so they do not go to waste. So of course I have created a Bella card using the New Let's Scrapbook collection. 

My challenge for you today is to use those Stripes and Polka Dots scraps you have let over. 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

You can trim down to whatever size fits your left overs. I trimmed these Let's Scrapbook papers to 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 on the top and the bottom measures 3 4 1/4. For the top I used Paper Party backer paper and added the Clear Cuts Be Happy right on top. I love layering the Clear Cuts on the designer paper. For the bottom I used Scrappy Talk backer colorful stripes. 

Adhere these papers to your card using liquid glue. When you layer the Clear Cut using a clear tape runner that goes on clear. I used the Thermoweb tape runner. 


To hind that seam in the middle I cut one of the Borders and trimmed off the heart design. You can really use any of these borders. I would use whatever you have left over. It measures 1 x 4 1/4, so you really do not need a big piece.

I also fussy cut one of the hearts and popped it up in the center. You do not have to do this. I just love dimension. 


Using the Let's Scrapbook Ciao Chip board I added this sentiment. It is already sticky on the back but I added some foam tape to give it a little more dimension. 

To finish I added those fun Scissors also from the Ciao Chip board. 


That is always enough to create a card. 
You can even create a card to coordinating with your scrapbook page.. why not... Right?

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful iNSD celebration.
