Guest Blogging at Scrapbook Steals Today!

Back in December, I was asked to guest blog over at the ScrapbookSteals.com blog.  You might be familiar with them, because they have ran a couple of Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker specials.  But, if you aren't sure what ScrapbookSteals is...it's just what it says!  Scrapbook supplies at great prices....who doesn't love a bargain? 

I was super excited when I found out I was working with American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection!  This collection is their steal for this morning, so you better grab it while you can!  I only was asked to create a couple of projects.  I ended up with three and more in the works.  The colors are soft, bright and somewhat muted.  I know that probably doesn't make sense, but that is the best way I can describe it!  LOL 

Let's get to the projects I created with the collection!  I built both my layouts starting with the Phrase Garlands (SMILE AND LOVE) and went from there. These were great because you can slide the letters together and adjust them!

 LOVE LOVE LOVE these flowers!  And I had to cut that camera from a 12 x 12 sheet that is in the collection and at it to the cluster!

Next up a banner of a project!  LOL  Sorry, I just had to say that, I couldn't resist.  I like puns and I try to use them when I can. I usually think it's "punny"!  And this banner only took me about an hour!  That includes my sewing machine getting jammed up in the bobbin area and I had to get the tweezers involved!  I was kind of excited, Carleen really liked this when I showed her!  I think she may hang it in her office!

And my last project, another layout!  I think I am going to end up scrapping those puppy pictures over and over.  This one I had to blow up, it was just too cute!

String of Hearts Banner

I just added some stitching with my pen and then I popped up the faux stitched hearts to make them stand out a little more.  And if you have a die cutter that will cut Kerri's kits..go, go QUICKLY and get them.  I have some and I have used them over and over!


Font I used was Helvetica at 72pt.  I then welded the words together.  American Crafts papers cut like BUTTER in the Silhouette!  

Thanks for stopping by and I would love it if you went over to the ScrapbookSteals.com blog and left me a little love!  And you might as well pick up the steal!  It's cute and you KNOW you want it!
