Today we have:

Britt Bass (You Are Here!)
Don't forget to visit:

I'm excited to show you what I came up with!  

I love it when non-traditional and traditional things are mixed together. The Jolly Whimsy Stack is the perfect example of that!  There is traditional red and shiny gold paired with trendy, fun pink and aqua.  The icons are just off-traditional and drawn in a cute, cartoon style.

I got to work with the Wave Album by Clearsnap and I love this shape!  This bubbly shape was just right for these papers!  I wanted to keep some of the album clear, so I made this porthole page, which allows you to see a SNEAK peek of the pages before and after it.  VERY easy to make with two piece of paper and a circle cutter. :) 

This stack came with TONS of cut-out embellishments!  It is NO secret that I love these cut-out pages and the ones in this stack are stellar.  I was an especially big fan of the pages of large numbers and letters.  I used the candy striped letters to show the year in a big, bold statement.

I Used some dies and punches to add a little dimension to the next pages.  A little pinwheel die makes a darling focal and I used some DCWV glitter paper and a stocking punch to complete this page.

I wanted to show a little more of the clear acrylic on this page and I love the way it looks when a portion of the page  is left uncovered, so that's what I did here.  You can see the next page showing through in the close up above.

I plan on using this book for the pictures of this coming Christmas Eve.  I'm not much of a journaler, but I did mount a journaling card on the back of the book so I can include a thought or two.

Feeling inspired?

Did we mention we also have amazing giveaways?
BOTH companies have incredible prize packages that are sure to get you and your craft on.

Oh Snap Birthday Card - DCWV "The Chalk Art Stack"

Good day to you! I'm making up for some lost time by spamming you with some of my latest and greatest projects.

I'm IN LOVE with this new Chalk Art Stack from DCWV.  It is a trendy, doodle-filled masterpiece and, even better, it is actually printed on DCWV's chalk paper, so you can use real chalk on your projects!

The colors in this stack are so fun and vibrant and there are lots of trendy icons like cameras, insta-frames and curly banners.

I found that white ink looks amazing on this paper, so that's what I used to make my card.

Doesn't that white ink look AMAZING!!?

Mile High Apple Pie Layout -DCWV

Hello!!I know I've been gone for a long time but I've had some bad luck with computers lately and that put me JUST a little bit behind.  But I'm making do right now and I hope to be completely back up and running with everything soon.

BUT, I have been crafting my little behind off!  Today I want to share a layout I made featuring a new fall stack from DCWV called Spiced Cider.

There is a restaurant here where I live called The Blue Owl that is famous for their pies.  Last year at thanksgiving we had one of their most delicious pies: the Mile High Apple Pie. Sounds awesome, right?  Wait till you see it!

I loooove the cut-out ephemera from this stack!  The patterns on this stack are so pretty and many have glitter treatments and, though I'm not always a big fan of the photo-real papers, this stack DOES have some really nice ones.
