Basic Grey Curio Album

Today I wanted to share a 6x12 album that I made using Basic Grey's Curio line.   I love this line - it is so vintage and so botanical (working at a nursery on the weekends gives me a great appreciation for nature!).  Below is the cover of my album - I love all the layers :-) 

Have a great weekend :-)

Congrats on your Wedding!

Just wanted to take a quick minute to share a card I did last summer - and just now realized I never posted (oops!).  I did this card for my cousin's wedding - using the colors from her wedding - and "upcycling" parts of her invitation :-)  The heart was punched out from the design on the front of her invite.  I also used this piece to color match the rest of the card.  Their names also came from the invite.  The colors seemed bright and cheery today - a nice break from the gloomy and cold weather we still have here in Chicago!

Wow. I did not realize that it has been 2 weeks since my last post! apparently I have been spending too much time surfing OTHER people's blogs! :-)

Tonight, I'll share some random cards I have made - but didn't get around to posting.... I was playing with my just-arrived PTI set (a few months ago now) and trying out the new stamp and die cut combo - which I LOVE - and have been using in a ton of different ways --- as you can see :-) Also trying to use up a bunch of that purple paper I have. LOL.

Hoping to be more "regular" on here... Have a great weekend!

Well, my cards did NOT get picked for the latest Papercrafts submissions call - but I decided to play along with all of the other people that got the same (or lack of) news...  Amber is sponsoring a Reject Blog Hop and I am participating!  Here are my 2 rejects:

Have a great weekend!
