Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 64

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  I am sure we all have something special to share today!

I’ve had the flu since Thursday…ugh!!  I didn’t feel too crafty this weekend, I spent my whole weekend in bed trying to kick the crud 🙁  I made this cute scrapbook page last week memorializing one of our adventures during my road trip with my daughter last summer.  So fast and easy to throw this together 🙂

The page features two different leaf dies from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies cut in Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz.  These leaves poke out behind the photos that are kinda scattered on the page.  There is a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that is the same size as the photos that has been embossed with the Woodgrain TIEF carrying the woodland theme.  The sentiment is from Going Global and gold embossed on vellum, then die cut with the large heart from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  The compass from Going Global is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake and die cut with a circle die.  The gold frame around the pic is from the Memories in the Making Project Life Card Collection available for free during Sale-A-Bration!  Don’t miss this cute set of cards, I am loving them right now 🙂  The last touches are some random grungy images from Timeless Textures in Crumb Cake, a tiny gold clothespin and some gold thread twisted in behind the trees and in the leaves.

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 63

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dara Gloden’s blog.  I am sure we all have something special to share today!

It felt very springy here in Colorado today!  I hear we are due for some snow tomorrow but that’s tomorrow and today was gorgeous 🙂  The lovely weather and the hint of spring inspired me to make a card featuring spring blooms today.

This card features several flowers die cut in Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  The card base is Whisper White, next is layered a piece of Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper with a piece of vellum on top.  The super adorbs Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon is wrapped around the vellum and DSP and tied with a bow.  A tea lace doily is layered under the ribbon and flowers.  The card is finished with the Oh, Hello sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration set Honeycomb Happiness.  So bright and cheerful and springy 🙂
