I'm loving this new SPRINGTIME line from MOXXIE. It is so bright and cheerful. This picture is of my dear friend Sarah with her 2 kiddos. Aren't they all just lovely. This fresh photo reminded me of a happy day, so I scrapped it in a happy way.
I used the book verse, "I'll love you forever, I'll like your for always, As long as I'm living, My baby you'll be." Perhaps it was seeing these kids who were just babies a moment ago looking so grown up that inspired that quote. I had fun mixing the MOXXIE letters with hand journaling and a cork heart for interest in the title.
Here is a close up of my blingy flower too. For a touch of fun!
Hello! Samantha here today to share a layout with you that uses a combination of new and old collections. Here's my Time Well Spent layout:
I love a good piece of wood grain paper, so I started my layout with a piece of At the Beach Surfs Up. The wood grain adds interest to the layout without being to busy and taking focus from the photo.
From there it was just a matter of choosing some of the more weathered looking solids from collections like Fun Run and Springtime.
My embellishment stickers were a combination of stickers from Fun Run and Faith. When mixing and matching collections it's more important to look at the colors and patterns on the paper than the name/theme of the collection. I finished up by creating my title with some of those awesome Moxxie alphas!
**I followed the directions on where to score and cut to create the box but did NOT begin to actually glue it all together until I had finished decorating it first!
I cut a strip of designer paper about 1/8" to a 1/4" smaller than back of the box and used my corner round edge punch and did a bit of distressing on it before I adhered it down to my box. Then I cut out a strip to wrap around the middle of the box part and distressed it a bit too. I tied together two small pieces of pink & brown bakers twine and stapled them down to the box. I punched out a cute little heart of Moxxie's Tiny Dancer line and layered on a Mambi sticker- love, using 3d-dots for dimension.
On the test tube measured around the test tube cut a strip of designer paper the length and width I needed. Leaving about 1/2" extra on the length to overlap. Before wrapping it around I found the middle of my strip punched a heart out and taped a small piece pink paper behind so the pink would peek through the punched out heart. Then I traced around it with a bronze Sharpie. Once I adhered the strip around the test tube I used some more pink & brown bakers twine to tie around.

Hi all, are you working on your valentines day cards? Don't forget to make one for your special guy too! Here is a card i made for my husband using the winery collection.
For the card base i started with the wooden look (aged to perfection) paper and cut it in half at 6 inches i then glued paper pieces back to back so i had the wood design on the inside and then folded it in half. Then i cutout the banner cut apart and layered it with the green paper . Next i grabbed a cardboard box and ripped off a piece and free hand cut a heart then ripped the top layer off to expose the currogated part of the cardboard. After that, i diecut a star flower shape and layered the button with twine ontop.
Lastly, i added the cork-look alpha,and swirl corklook stickers and corner wooden sticker with a lil popdot behind along with another piece of twine for more texture. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating! jen t.
