This months Blog Hop features the Make Waves paper package.
These bright playful papers make me smile. If you are visiting from Brittany Allreds blog then you are on the right track.

I created a 2 page layout using the paper package, the complements, and some bashful glitter paper.  I also used the darling Picture My Life cards from the paper package.  A pretty plain and simple layout but sometimes less is more.  Now head over to see what Shirley Ross has created.

I am in love with the new Seasonal Expressions
January - April 2018

I have been playing with the Stargazer papers that are in this book.  I love the bright vibrant colors and the versatility of the papers.  Although it is shown as a space theme, it can be used for so many other events.  I hope you enjoy the pages and cards that I created!!!!

These Basic Fundamentals are absolutely to die for.  They are for sure my favorite fundamental package.  I love that you can create with the different tones and shades or add a pop of color to them.  I have created two cards.  The first one  using the browns which I only used the browns, spiced it up with our Bronze Sequins, and one with the greys where I added a splash of Bashful Cardstock, glitter paper,  and pearls to perk it up.  I used the sentiments from the Hunting For Words stamp set, B1571.  You may also notice that the card designs are new. ( Hint hint) there might be something new to look forward to in January!!!!!
