On this one, I just changed the lettering from clear to orangy-brown to go with the crystal strips.
So now, I have to start wishing that someone will take pity on me and help me with my blog!!! I decided that I wanted a white background and went to change it. Did I remember to save the template? NO! Gone forever! lol After the move, I'll be working on this again. I wish I knew how to do digital so that I could make cool stuff for it. For now... clean and simple is what it is!
Thanks for dropping by!

The Main Kit is gorgeous!! It features My Minds Eye Bella Bella. Such beautiful papers fresh from CHA. This kit is loaded with flowers, too!! It has a complete tin of Prima and a whole package of BoBunny flowers! Don't forget to check out the gorgeous Prima butterfly. IRL, this butterfly is so sparkly!! AND... it has brand new Zva crystals straight from CHA. You're going to love how easy these new Zva crystals are to use!!!
This is my mom (center) and her sisters when they were little girls. I wanted this one to have a bit of a heritage feel. To achieve the look on the flowers, I first inked them. I then used a watermark pad and heavily added clear embossing powder to them. After embossing with this combination, your flowers have a kind of porceline look.
The Creative Kit is just adorable this month. It features one of the new Cosmo Cricket releases, Girl Friday. So cute and the chipboard accents are really GREAT!! Pam has also added some terrific extras to this one. This kit has an entire bottle of Prima Got Prints flowers. There are so many fun possiblities with this one!!
Another picture of Jade when she was little. I just added a bit of ink and glitter to this one. The kit is so cute that you don't have to do much to end up with a sweet page!
Everything here is in the kit. Lots of great extra embellishments! Another page of Jade. She was it this month! lol
This is just a little sign that I made with the Creative Kit. I was in a terrible mood that day and this was a little reminder to me! The frame was made by using ink and more holographic embossing powder. (by Ranger) I filled in the circles with dimensional paint and the letters are a mix of the CC chipboard and ones that I cut out of the paper.
This is Jade with her Valentine's Day date. They came to a dinner that we hosted and I got this cute picture of her and Chase and thought it was perfect for this paper. I folded some of the flowers to to make them look nice along the vine ribbon. I am really in LOVE with this line of paper!! The colors are just fantastic. Check out the Woodstock Cherry flowers... yep, they're in the kit, too!!
My last project for the kits this month was this little card. I made it using a Prima Paintable from the kit. I used some extra plain tranparency to put it together. If you look closely, you can see that I painted behind the pink dimensional dots with green acrylic paint. You just need to do this on the opposite side. Then your color shows through while keeping the beautiful details visible on the front. To give yourself a place to write on the inside of the card, just add a square of paper.
Be sure to check out the kits!! Pam is now taking pre-orders for April's kits. There are so many more great things to come at MCS!
While you are there, be sure to check out the challenges! We are having a lift the design team challenge right now. The prize is terrific!! You guessed it... lots more Prima flowers. Here is a picture of the prize.
See you at My Creative Scrapbook!!

This one is of my great nephew Preston. I love this picture that his Nana sent me! He's so new that is little cord is still attached. On this one, the crystal strands, the brads and even the crystal title are from Zva Creative.
I also was so honored to be asked to be a guest designer for Webster's Pages this month! Webster's is my favorite paper line right now!! I love the gorgeous papers and the journaling cards are wonderful!!! They sent me the "Hello Beautiful" line to work with! Wow!! It's so beautiful and it really reminds me of gorgeous fabrics. Just perfect for altering as well as scrapping! They also sent me a package of their trims. Trust me, these will not disappoint either! Another beautiful product from Wester's Pages! Here are a couple of things that I did for them.
This one is a picture of my husband and my kids years ago. Everything seen here is in the Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook. LOTS of fun goodies!!
This one is a picture I took of my inlaws a few years ago. Everything here is also in the Main Kit. The only things I added were alot of ink and glimmer mist.
So, as you can see, I've been scrapping alot! This month has been a lot of fun, but very busy!! I'll be back to share more soon!! Really, I will! lol
Thanks for stopping by!
