Art Impressions Showered With Love Week Two!!

Hello AI Fans!!

It's week two of the Showered With Love challenge over at Art Impressions!! I used three of the four  Zoo Babies line and created an adorable Mom/Grandma brag book. These Zoo Babies are so cute and perfect for baby projects! The book is a Silhouette cut file created by Lori Whitlock, and I just created an internal offset so I could cut the patterned paper and have it fit perfectly.  I then mirrored the internal pieces so I could make use of the back sides of the pages as well!  My apologies as there are LOTS of pictures, so grab a cuppa and get ready!  I had so much fun creating this and  I honestly do love how this book turned out!  For the front page I used #4531 Bananas Set. Isn't he so adorable? 




For the 2nd page, I just added a photo mat with a cute May Arts bow. 


Next page in, I created a pocket on the left to hold either photos or some wonderful keepsakes. There's another photo mat and May Arts bow on the right. 


Next set of pages I used one of my favorites, #4534 Wildly Cute Set on the left.  The sentiment with another photo mat and bow on the right. Everything is popped up for dimension and interest. 


A close up of this super cute giraffe! 




Just photo mats with bows and some Nuvo Crystal drops on the next pages. 






And the last pages feature #4533 Dream Big Set on the left with another photo mat and the sentiment on the right.  I made a bow with some May Arts Twine and put a green button in the center of it. 







A look at the book. It does NOT lie flat! LOL


And another look at it standing as a whole

Happy Birthday Chick with Art Impressions

Hello AI Fans!!

Todays card features the fun and fabulous AICS40 Spring Chicken Set from the Art Impressions line Funny Farm!  They make such fun Birthday cards I think!! Have you colored them up yet? I would love to see your creations if you  have. So be sure and leave a link for me in the comments so I can go take a peek!  I colored them up twice, so went ahead and made two cards with the same layout but different colors. Oops!! I actually forgot to stamp the sentiment before I put the mounting tape on the back to pop up the image, so I ended up having to put it on a separate piece of paper. Oh well...just gives even more dimension as I popped the sentiment up too! :) 







Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today! Hope to see you again soon, and until then - stay crafty!

Art Impressions Elephant PopCard


Hello AI Fans!!! 

My card today features the fun and adorable Elephant PopCard! Have you tried these yet?  Kate just recently posted a PopCard Quick Tips Video for you to watch if you've been intimidated by them at all! It's a must see if you haven't put one of these together yet! And have you seen the NEW ones that were revealed last week? Oh my gosh!! I am so in love with them!! Bonnie took the PopCards to a completely different level with this new release!! I have no idea which one is my favorite. I will have to have every one of them!!   I am teaching this card at our local scrapbook store Scrapbook Paradise.  I think everyone will LOVE putting it together!! I stamped and cut him out on watercolor paper and used my Marvy Markers to color right on the paper instead of using a pallet and brush. 



I just love him so much!!  Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope to see you back again soon! Until then - stay crafty!!
