a little craftiness

so....  husband home for christmas break + sick kids + lots (& lots & lots) of rain have allowed me to spend a little crafty time this week.  i am truly grateful for that! (not the sick kid part though....)    i have a card and a layout that i can't share yet, but will give a little sneaky peeky of another day.  :) 

  i seriously am in love with this card.  it's the colors.  i used the studio calico exclusives from december + a sheet from glitz + those awesome ki memories scribbles stickers.  i love, love, love the way it turned out.  to make the "banner" i simply cut out a couple of  rows from the sassafras lass/ sc paper, attached a strip from the herringbone paper & accordion folded it.  Love the way it turned out & you will actually see the same thing on several of my layouts & cards coming up!  :)  

i made this one with a sheet from the glitz hoopla paper, my mind's eye crepe ribbon & some pearls.  love the way that cake looks.  i think i need a couple more sheets; so, i can make some birthday ones too! 
another one made from glitz pp.  i used this paper and the one in the top card.   i used the real state punch and the coordinating stamp from studio calico (in the holiday lights add on)  
this lo is from studio calico's december kit, metropolitan.  (i think they still have some.  if you don't have it, you should snatch it up.  it is that fabulous.)  this is my girl + my friend's girl + the other "belle" from our church christmas play last weekend. they were the "belles of the nile"   

to make this little flower center, i used the stamp from the main kit.  i first stamped it one kraft cardstock & then stamped it on 4 different patterns. then,  i cut out bits from the patterns & glue dotted them on!  love the colorful, mosaic look! 
i think i mentioned this in another post, but i am also in love with the new ki memories calendar pages.  i think i am going to make a month in review page each month.  i've started on december's using the teal one.  i'll share it after the month is over & i've finished it!  :) 
(and a side note: if the dates look "off," it's because i accidentally put june.  it should be july!  eek!)

  2. Lovely work...as always...

    I missed saying "hi" to you at Scrap Again a couple of weeks ago...so..."Hi!"...

    I'm loving all this rain, but unfortunately I'm in the 'sick' category and haven't been able to get any crafty stuff done...but you are inspiring me!
