With the formalities taken care of, here are my projects - there are quite a few of them, so I'll keep the write up short and just share lots of pics to inspire you with. Enjoy! 

For my first project I wanted to share how I have used the mini Bright Bouquet Decal Set...

Oh how sweet is this?!
Such a beautiful adornment to my Watercolor 36 Pan Set & handmade journal!

Let's take a better look...

So very beautiful! The Altenew Decals are always so good! Not only do they remove and reseal easily but they also feature such gorgeous florals! LOVE them!

Next up is this sweet scrapbook page of my darling boy...

Oh so awesome! 
The Painted Hummingbirds Stamp & Die were perfect for documenting my son's attempts to 'fly' off the boardwalk steps and into the beach below. 

There are so many beautiful details to this page...

That embellishment cluster beneath his photograph is simply stunning! It's a mix of the Painted Hummingbirds Stamp & Die cut birds, Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection: Floral Ephemera, Classy Stripes stenciling and a good scatter of Sea Shore Enamel Dots.  So impressive!

Those hummingbirds are really amazing, aren't they?

SO cool! 

Next is another pretty scrapbook page, this time highlighting the stunning Queen Anemone Stamp And Die Set...

Oh, isn't this sooooo pretty?!!
That layered stamp is beyond words gorgeous!

You'll also spy those sweet Painted Hummingbirds - but this time instead of stamping them, I cut them out from the Pink Watercolor Washi Tape.  Here's some more pics for you...

Gosh, that  Queen Anemone Stamp is somethin'! So beautifully detailed!

You'll also spy more of the beautiful Enjoy The Ride Scrapbook Collection here too!


Time for some card love!

Oh my goodness, does it get any sweeter than this?!!
The new Sweet Love Layering Stamp And Die Set is perfect for creating Valentine's and romantic notelets for your beloved!

Seriously sweet!

Such a delicious lil set! 

And last, but by no means least, a CAS slimline card featuring the new Washi Tape releases...

Oh just look at that Foiled Marble Washi Tape!!! I.can't.even!!! SO Gorgeous!!!

Clean and Simple, and oh-so-pretty!


I really hope you liked my projects today & feel inspired to get creating!
