Here are some samples of what has been done up with this kit!! All designed by Tannis D

 little bit of white paint - directly on the cardstock & the corrugated paper, little circle punche(her own)
dew drops (her own) and inked the edges of the paper and stapled the ribbon with the tiny attacher - by Tim Holtz "Slight Alterations" (I just ordered this one for the store, it is fabulous!!)

 Inked the wooden Pennants, put letter stickers on the pennant as well, twine through the button ,
title (her own) Bella Blvd
 Inked the edges of everything, words are from the Year-o-logy paper,
 butterfly punch is Martha Stewart (her own)

 another lovely & simple idea you can do, using the alphabet stickers on the tag, heart punch (Martha again, her own) and 1 dew drop, so precious!
this one is so cool!  Paint on the corrugated, a Tim Holtz border stamp called
and glimmer mists, and then stamped over the top.
 And here she made a little mini book, with that large Melissa Francis Envelope!

She used Mr. Hueys butterfly mask and sprays, then stamped that same border stamp around the outside edges.
 with the leftover paper, she made little mini pages for the envelope, the tabs on top...the Jenni Bowlin tab punch, soo great!

 don't you just love to play with paper?? I hope that these ideas inspire you today!!!
And it you want a kit, email me at the store, it's the 1st one-so there is limited quantities,  but I am already working on April's kit - yipee!!


just a little book....

the great thing about this hobby is creating for the "fun of it"  a few Friday nights ago I had the pleasure of scrapping with Tannis D at the store. It was so great to be there after hours, catch up and just create something for fun...not for the store, not for a class, but just because...and this is what I made:-)

just a little book for Dain - one day last summer he thought it would be cool to swing, and then go flying off the swing and into the pool, it was so crazy and very picture worthy:-)
