Happy Birthday Apron Strings Day #15 & The Paper Variety

I created a Wedding themed card for the challenge over at The Paper Variety and I added some "bling" which counts as my "sprinkles" for the Apron Strings Birthday Challenge #15.

I used Stampin' Up supplies and created a punch art wedding couple. I got the tutorial for the couple on You Tube. To give it a twist, I made the rose on the lapel with the tiny flower from the Itty Bitty punch pack (2 of them crinkled up). The stamp set is Word Play. I added lots of bling with the pearls and the rhinestone. I love the pearl neckline!

Hope you like my card! I'll probably be making it again for my punch art class. I have 3 weddings to go to this year so I'll need more of these cards!

Happy Birthday Apron Strings Day #14 & Page Maps Challenge

Here's a layout I did for Apron Strings Day #14 Birthday challenge and the challenge over at Page Maps, the Webster's Pages Sketch contest. I must say I don't feel like it's one of my better pages. =( I used 3 pieces of chipboard per the Apron Strings challenge ingredient, which was Fondant! ...And the sketch from Page Maps.
I hope to do better on my next layout... :) I stayed up waaaaay to late tonight! =(

Happy Birthday Apron Strings Day #13

I created this layout for the day 13 Apron Strings Birthday celebration. I had to get in on the fun when Lori said pick five of these:
  • Layer Cake
  • Cupcakes
  • Sheet Cake
  • Fruit Filling
  • Frosting
  • Fondant
  • Sprinkles
  • Candles

So I picked 5 and today she said to pick 1 and create a layout each day using the corresponding items:

  • Layer Cake = Use three sheets of patterned paper
  • Cupcakes = Use at least six Buttons
  • Sheet Cake = Use Cardstock only
  • Fruit Filling = Use Stickers
  • Frosting = Use two different kinds of ribbon
  • Fondant = Use three pieces of chipboard
  • Sprinkles = Use bling
  • Candles = Use rub-ons

Today I created a layout using Cupcakes or 6 buttons for my baby boy's scrapbook album. Oh yes! We are having a BOY! :) Already picked a name, Wyatt Christiaan. Here's a picture of our little guy and my layout.

I love this love love it. I bought the whole kit because it has the cutest owls on it. You'll for sure be seeing more of it :) Oh and here's a picture of my little baby bump at 19 weeks! We already felt him kick this past week - what an amazing little miracle!! We also started the room...will post a before and after picture soon!
