Product Review-Viva 3D stamp paint

I reviewed Viva's 3D Stamp Paint on the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today. On this finished project I used it with a stencil to make the border and I mixed some with a bit of water and used it as a mist to get the light blue tint on the white cardstock. You should try some.
This LO documents the home arrival of my garage sale recliner. DD and SIL are so awesome.

DT card for Scrapbook Blessings Club

The card challenge today is called "Say It With Words". You are to use a sentiment on the front of your card. For my card I fussy cut the hot air balloon and mounted it with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock 4.5 inches by 1.5 inches. Then I inked the edges. I also used a border to put on both sides of the sentiment to further call attention to it. The PP and stamps are CTMH. Here it is:
Thanks for looking. Have a blessed day.

Border Layers with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea

This is a LO of my friend Jenise using Graphic 45's new line called Botanical Tea. Beautiful colors from them as usual. I cut some templates for border layers with my cricut and traced them on the back of the PP and cut them out. Easy as pie. I got the idea for the border layers from Kiwi Designs that sells templates to make these kinds of LO's. You could even do the layers without templates, just cut. Hope this inspires you to try your own border layers.
Thanks for looking. comments are always appreciated. 

Layout for Scrapbook Joey Challenge

This is the Layout I did for the recipe challenge over at Scrapbook Joey. This company is in the process of producing a scrapbooking game. The recipe challenge called for hexagons, chevrons, one enlarged photo, ribbon, and something more than a year old from your stash. The number card is many years old, probably at least 7. This is my DS at just a few months old. Isn't he adorable?
