Moxxie {Happy Spring}

Good morning! I love the beauty of spring! Everything is just so beautiful. I especially love the tulips. I found a couple of pictures where my two beautiful little girls when they were 4 and 2 years old. I had found them outside smelling and playing with the tulips.
This layout is great for using all those spare scraps! I started out with my base with a sheet from the football line Grid Iron. Then as I was digging through my Springtime line I started to notice I had a bunch of little spare scraps, I decided to try to incorporate them. It was a lot of fun piecing it all together. I even used some of the Moxxie Alphas for the date.
I even loved adding little extra's here and there such as enamel dots, stickers & brads. My favorite was stitching the word Love on.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Moxxie {Happy Easter Cards}

Good Morning! Today I've got two very cute and fun cards to share with you! I paired two unlikely new Moxxie lines together for these cards.... Grid Iron & Tiny Dancer.
Pairing these two lines together made the cutest Easter cards! Here's the first one...
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the little bunny that I downloaded from Miss Kate Cuttables out of a sheet from Grid Iron, love the richness of that brown. Then I used a sheet from Tiny dancer to cut out the intricate egg. I tied a know in some ribbon and trimmed the ends and adhered it with a glue dot to the bunny. For the sentiment I used a stamp from a Stampin' Up! Stamp set- Just So Sayings and stamped it on a small piece of white cardstock that I cut the corners on to shape into a tag, punched a hole and threaded some linen thread through it then tied it onto the pink bow.

Want to see the next one? Ok, I won't tease you anymore. ;) Here's my 2nd card.
I used the scrap left behind from cutting out the bunny for the previous card to create this one. I layered it the pink cardstock that I used for my base and traced the bunny out and cut the shape out. I then adhered the brown layer on top of the pink, now my card front has a bunny shaped hole! ;) For the inside of the card I added a cute polka doted sheet from Tiny Dancer. Next, I added a little white pom-pom for the tail and tied a mini bow adhering it about where it's neck should be. Then I added 3 little enamel dots on the outside. Here's a look of the inside.
Just a little different but I love how cute and simple it turned out.

Moxxie {Easter Basket with Treat & Blog Hop}

I have a fun little project to share with you that's perfect for Easter! I used the beautiful new Springtime line from Moxxie aaaand it's the line you can win on our Moxxie blog hop! More details on how to enter at the end.
The colors are gorgeous and perfect for this project! I had so much fun creating this cute little basket and the adorable little treat that sits in it.
I started out with a full 12x12 sheet and scored in 3 inches from all sides. By doing that it should create squares in all four corners, I then went around and only cut one side of each square. Then you should be able to fold along the scored lines and have it start looking like a basket. I added adhesive to those squares and stuck all the sides together. Then to create the handle I cut two 1 inch strips adhered them together and onto the basket. Then added a brad on each side for additional support. 
For the front I took three different colored strips and used a Martha Stewart punch. I then added the swirly and tag from an older Moxxie line called Spring has Sprung.
Now for that adorable little "carrot" that is sitting in the basket. 
I followed an excellent tutorial HERE. On how to create this cute little "carrots". For a few extra details I used some green staples to hold the top and used a tag from the Spring has Sprung line and tied it on with some yellow twine.
Isn't that the sweetest bunny!? Here's a shot of the whole basket.

Scrap It Girl {My Girls & Color Challenge}

Good morning! Is everyone having a fun April Fools day!? My kids have a full day of pranks planned out! I'm not sure I'm going to survive this day! lol  Well something that is sure to help is this new fun challenge over at Scrap It Girl! This months challenge is a color challenge- black, white and any other color! I have to admit I was really struggling with this one when I first started out but it slowly started coming together. Here is my layout for the challenge.
I use a sheet of cardstock for my base and then lined the edges with some black & white washi tape. I cut out a 9" circle to put behind my pictures along with a white piece of cardstock. Then added some fun washi tape, enamel dots and cute little butterflies. Here's some fun close ups.

Hope you come and join us with this fun challenge and link it up over at Scrap It Girl and show us what you've created! 
Thanks for stopping by! :)
