I spy with my little eye

Something wonderful in the gallery:
I confess that I am a dog lover and this project of Lisa's just made me smile. It has great pictures and a nice clean look so I decided to give her a hats off on the blog today. Congrats Lisa!

Heathers April Challenge is a . . .

sketch challenge.  Woo-hoo.  Ali MacDonald, of Sketches:Creatively Yours, gave us an exclusive sketch to play with!!! Woot!

Ali designs sketches for an amazingly creative team of ladies once a week. You are invited to play along at her site as often as you like (and simultaneously check many layouts off of your to-do list). I've never found a sketch of hers that I could resist!

You have all month to complete the challenge and post at the Scrapdango message boards. Of course, you don't have to use a Scrapdango kit, but you'll receive an extra point if you do.

And make sure you visit the board to see Heather's wonderful page using this sketch.

Hope you play along.

Sugar is so Sweet!

Sugar is sweet - and so is this kit. One of the things that I love is when paper coordinate - and this kit is just packed with it. It was a joy to work with.
it is the extras that make a page and the stickers in this kit just made this one so fun and easy. I just love the layout.
One of the great sheets of paper had the doily paper with the flower and butterflies. I juat added some stitching and a few stickers and this almost made itself.

Weaving is fun and I like the way I could coordinate the papers to give this card a great look.

These last 2 card were so easy. The stickers from the kit made it simple to made these darling gems.

Jessica's April Spice Kit Reveal

Happy Wednesday everyone. 

Being that I have a little boy and girl I love that Scrapdango offers the Sugar and Spice kit.  Did you know?  You can choose whether you want to receive the Sugar kit, Spice kit or both kits each month in our Everything Nice Combo kit membership.  Well, without further ado here are my examples for the April Spice Kit. 

Here is a close up of my single layout.  These sticker embellishments were awesome to work with. 

I love these stars that came in the kit.  The texture on them is pretty cool. 

I always want to make boy cards but tend to shy away because I just don't have the right materials.  That was so not the case for this kit.

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to come back tomorrow for another reveal.

Heather's April Sugar kit reveal

I LOVED this kit, featuring Simple Stories Fabulous line {Available April 5th)!

I remember weaving a basket as a child, so, on this layout about my niece, I decided to give it a try with paper:

I used every bit of the yarn in the kit on this layout, and I love the effect...

On this layout, I decided to only use the journaling cards in the kit as the patterned paper. The baker's twine on the second page was the actual twine from the bakery. Love that I was able to use it!

This one was simple... I only matted the picture twice and then added in lots of embellishments.

This kit just begs for cute, springy cards to be made.

I hope you enjoyed all of the eye candy. Hop over to the message boards and join in our fun!

Ana's April Sugar Reveal

Hey everyone.  Can you believe is it April already?  I can't and 2012 is flying by.  This month I was able to work with the Scrapdango April Sugar kit.  And OMG it is by far my most favorite kit I have ever gotten to play with.  (And I have been subscribing to kits for 4 or 5 years now, so that is saying something.)

The April kit is full of Fabulous from Simple Stories.  And the name is right, fabulous it is.  So without me gabbing any longer, here are my pages.  

I did a home decor project for my first one.  I found these little wooden frames buried inside a box.  I painted them pink and then dug out some super duper old chipboard alphas and painted them too.  Then I used a sheet of cardstock from the kit and mounted each letter.  I added a sticker from the sticker sheet in the kit on to each letter and tied a piece of twine.  These will go into the downstairs basement this coming week.

Next is my two pager.

Then I have this picture of my family from Thanksgiving. 

Lastly, a pict of my youngest daughter. 

Thanks for looking and have a great April.  And don't forgot to come back and see what the other designers for you and make sure you order your Sugar kit asap, they are going to go fast.
