It's been a nice week! Things have been rather slow at work, so I've been knocking stuff off my To Do list here at home. That's always a good thing!

I have a couple of things to share today. First up is this card.

I made it for Stamp It 3 Ways, a new Paper Crafts special issue that just came out. I used a stamp by My Cute Stamps to build the background. Then, I added some Crate Portrait goodies. I love that chipboard flower, don't you?

Next up is a layout I did for my recent American Crafts Guest DT spot. Ryan is totally into Pokemon right now, as are his closest little buddies. Here they are playing on their DSs. Listening to them talk about the characters cracks me up. I'm amazed that I actually know who Hydregon, Reshram and Kairem are...Scary...

I used papers and embellishments from the Chap line, which I absolutely adore!! The colors are so perfect for my boy pages and the designs are so fun!

I don't know if you can see, but I added some fun little paper 'shavings' to this. It happened quite accidentally. I was trimming the edges of the paper and they fell onto my page. Well, I loved how they looked when they were all curled up like that and I love how they matched the paper. So, I arranged them under the photos. They kind of remind me of thread or twine.

My final project for today is a card I made using the Amy Tangerine line. I adore the colors in this line sooooo much! I decided to create the background by cutting a bunch of strips and laying them on the card, diagonally.

Then, I added half of a doily, a cut paper frame and flowers made from fabric paper strips.

Well, that's all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day. :)
