A Card and a Layout.

Blah... what a boring title. lol. I couldn't come up with anything snazzier, though. I have two things to share today, but I have to make this quick as "Movie Night" is about to commence! hehe.

First off is a card. I was trying to make it out of scraps for the Studio Calico: Scraps Card Challenge, but I didn't really have all that many scraps [only paper scraps, no embellie scraps] so that's not exactly what I came up with. I'll just try to come up with another for the challenge. Anywho... here's the card!

The card was made from pink paper scraps [the butterflies], gold/tan ribbon, and a Dear Lizzy rub-on.
I got the rub-on and ribbon from the March Studio Calico kit, Quilting Bee.
The box is my own writing and I punched the butterflies with my MS Butterfly punch.

Rub-on: MiniMarks Phrases - Pounce (American Crafts)
Ribbon: Satin Ribbon, Yellow (American Crafts)

The next is a layout I made today, using the Quilting Bee kit from Studio Calico. I scrap-lifted a member of Studio Calico, bluestardesign. I fell in love with her original layout, which can be found here. It's so simple, but so gorgeous and powerful! It's definitely a favorite of mine!

Again, I used the Studio Calico March Kit... Quilting Bee. I am so in love with this kit!
Journaling reads: This little ball of fluff is my sunshine. I love her so much! I am so lucky to have her! -April 2010
Wood Veneer: Veneer Circle Shapes (Studio Calico)
Red Patterned Paper: Tailor Made (Cosmo Cricket)
Yellow Flower Paper: Calico (Cosmo Cricket)
Blue Flower Paper: Sapphire (Sassafras)
Yellow Cherry Paper: Cherry on Top (Jenny Bowlin)
Red Cherry Paper: Sweet Strawberry (American Crafts)
Orange/Yellow Stripe Paper: Tea (Studio Calico)
Yellow Cardstock: Sunflower (American Crafts)
Cherry Stamp: Cherries Mini Stamp (Studio Calico)
Rub-on: Minimarks Phrases - Pounce (American Crafts)
Bee Sticker: (Jolee's Boutique)

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my creations!
Hope ya'll had a wonderful Friday!

  1. Hi Kasey,

    First off I love your new blog. We are always on the same wave length. I was just on Shabby Blogs today and noticing all the new backgrounds. I want to change mine again. This is why I can't put up wallpaper. I want to change it too often!

    Your card is so sweet and I love that MS punch. I have been giving mine a workout lately!! The Dear Lizzy rub on is great. I love that whimsical line!

    Your LO is terrific and what a great scraplift. Isn't it great when you see a LO that just catches your eye and you can use it as a blue print. I did all my scrapping that way until I discovered sketches! Love these vibrant patterns and your pup is so sweet!

    Have a great weekend. :)

  2. Hi Kasey, Yes, they are!!! I LOVE them too although I usually have problems with the stems drooping by the second day. But... the triple vase that these came in, is so short that it really supports the stems! I'll be keeping this vase for future use!! Hope you have a fun weekend planned. :) Jen :)
