want2scrap & SSS

HI! Hope you are all having a great week. It is HOT here!  So it's only appropriate to share with you this layout of our Chaser drinking at his water bowl. He is so funny. He makes these crazy faces, almost like he is going to say something to you so I had to document it. 

I used the Sweet Stamp Shop Buddie Bee stamp. If yo have dogs you NEED this stamp set! 
I put a pawprint on the journaling card and I used the smaller paw print along the side of the layout with the sticker phrases. All of these Prima Papers are from the the FTLOA May kit and they have that strip along the bottom. I always cut them off and never use them so this time I did and used them to frame the layout. 
That woodgrain paper is from Cosmo Cricket Core all time FAVORITE piece of cardstock. Then I just added the want2scrap  heart bling over the photo of Chase.

May Arts Design Team Call

Not sure you saw the May Arts DT call here. If you didn't you better hurry up and get your application in!!!

Not only is the ribbon just gorgeous...gorgeous....BUT they are so generous and just awesome to work with. If you want to be a part of something amazing...then PLEASE check it out and send in your app NOW!

I really hope to be able to stay on and do videos in a cameo spot. 

Today I have some projects for you using May Arts ribbon of all kinds.  The video is about weaving May Arts Twine in the Burlap. Two MUST haves if you love ribbon!

And here is a layout that I created using more May Arts twine and this time I braided them. I cannot get enough  of this twine!!!

Then I used my Tiny Attacher to make keep the ends together. I used Prima Sun Kissed for the patterned papers and letters from the FTLOA store. And the cute little be is a Sweet Stamp Shop stamp and I used my Spectrum Noir Markers.

Next up is a fun card that I created using some May Arts Burlap string and some Lawn Fawn Stamps.
Who knew flocking was so much fun!!!!!

There is a video below showing tips on how to make the flag, do the flocking on the sheep and the grass.

Last but not least.....
I used some May Arts Twine and weaved it in and out of  the May Arts Burlap Ribbon. This stuff is so FUN!!!! It is great for home decor projects but it looks fab on layouts, too!

Here is a close-up...all you need is a large needle (I call them leather needles not sure if that is accurate but they are thicker and heavy duty and they manage the thicker Baker's Twine really well).

Have a good one!

I know I said this yesterday but I can't seem to put the Black Magic cardstock down!
I crumpled it and then sanded it for the red Core to come through. The die is from Spellbinders and I weaved some May Arts trim in there.

I can't believe these Jillibean Soup tags and bits fit this card so perfectly!
For the edges of the yellow cardstock, I used my Fiskars paper about old school!

Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps

Here is the order of the hoppity hop hop! 
Sorry..silly mood today :)
Sweet Stamp Shop-

This month's sets are so much fun!!!

I used To the Moon on this layout...I used Spectrum Noir Markers for the flames and to do the red along the stamped strip along the bottom and to color in the stars.
I haven't been able to put my Black Magic down yet. I have used it on my last few layouts. It is one of my favorite Core'dinations lines. The rest of the papers are from Momenta from our swap with Sweet Stamp Shop a few weeks ago.

And I thought the Handmade with Love set would be fun on the back of the layout to 
record the date and my siggy :)

School's Out Layout

Well..technically this layout is about the First Day of school but who's keeping score right? 
That is the best thing about this stamp set is that you can use it for any time of the school year!

This is one of my favorite photo shoots with the boys (and I mean that in the most casual way, LOL). Owen's first day of 3rd grade and the fam seeing him off....

I used Core'dinations Cardstock and scor'd and then sanded the corners. The stamps are in the upper left and right corners ( and the apples). I had Owen write about his day in the lined paper. All patterned paper is Imaginisce and so are the stickers...I embossed the apple.

Used my Cricut for the large title....
