First up, is this pretty scrapbook page,


Oh how pretty! So many lovelies here! 

Let's take a closer look...

The stamps in the Modern & Edgy release are really somethin'! 

The Dahlia Blossoms are just divine! 
So lovely for my documenting my darling daughter with! 

Happiness, indeed! 

And the Essential Black & White Enamel Dots are the perfect finishing touch! 

Next up is this sweet card, "Bloom & Grow"

Gorgeous, huh?

Simple, but so stunning! 

Ever wondered how to incorporate embossing folders into your scrapbook pages? 
Well my next project demonstrates just that! 

"Perfect" - 12 x 12inch scrapbook page

Wow! Isn't this just a bit special?!

Here's a closer look...

The Rosy 3D Embossing Folder is the perfect backdrop for my sweet girl's photo! I simply fussy cut around the edges of the embossed bloom before layering onto my page. Such a fun & inventive way to use embossing folders!

But it really is the stamps that have my heart in this month's release! 
The Fresh Bloom Stamp is just exquisite! So beautifully detailed!

Here's a few more close ups for you...


And last, but by no means least, a DIY project....

How beautiful is this personalized calico gift bag?!
Did you know that the Mixed Media Pigment Inks are suitable for use on a variety of surfaces including fabrics & textiles? Simply set the ink with a heat gun and then it's waterproof! I combined mine with the lovely Inky Lily Stamp Set to create this pretty gift bag! LOVE!

Just another reason to snap up these awesome ink pads! Get yours HERE

I really hope that my projects have inspired you today!
