It's almost that time again...School

This week at White Rose Crafts we have a new theme, and one that I am in denial

This week everything school related is on sale!  I used Woodware School Tots for my planner pages. Our youngest starts preschool soon and this adorable stamp set was perfect to set that week off. I also used some paper from the Simply Creative Mankind paper collection. I had to sprinkle some But First, Coffee Sparkle Blends on the top because I have a few things penciled in already and hey, school calls for coffee, right?! Anyway, here is a look at my planner. 

Aren't these guys just adorable! They sure do make going back to school fun!!

HCP It's a Paaarty

Hello, Today I am sharing a very fun shaker card. I had a lot of fun putting this one together and got to play with some different things than usual. I started by printing the heart cupcake digital stamp on the background on my card. I then used my Prismacolored pencils to color it. 

Next I die cut a border to create my shaker. I added a piece of transparency to the back of the die cut paper and then added a boder of foam tape around the inside of that. I shook out some of the Sweet Treats sparkle blends onto the cupcake and then added the frame on top to create my shaker. Next I used my Cameo 3 to cut out the speech bubble.

Once I had the speech bubble cut out, I added it to the card to finish it off. I think it turned out super cute and was fun to play with all the elements.

Little Red.....Hoodwinked!

Today I am sharing my Little Red card from HeartcraftPaper.  Ironically my older kids had introduced Makayla to Hoodwinked earlier this summer so when I saw Little Red I knew I HAD to have her to play with! I used my Cricut Explore to print and cut her out, then I colored her with my copic markers and colored pencils for shading. She was still missing something, and since I am from KS I had to make her ruby red shoes glitter and shine so I added Wink of Stella to them and her hood. Everything is better with sparkles, Right?! I finished it off with some Doodles Paper Playground Sparkles blend in But First, Coffee. They were just the right color and added the perfect finishing touch. I die cut the thanks from brown shimmer cardstock 4 times to add some dimension. Now, Little Red is ready to deliver some thankful goodness to the recipient!

It's a paper crafting world!

Hello, this week at White Rose Crafts LLC we have a new theme going on involving paper! I will warn you now, this is a very photo heavy post!

My project involved a LOT of cardstock and paper but I am truly in love with how this mini album turned out. I used Lori Whitlock's 5x5 album with box for the base of the album. It made it so much easier to cut all my pieces with my Silhouette Cameo 3 and then just assemble. The cardstock was some from my stash but the patterned paper is what really makes this project stand out. I used the new Craft O' Clock My Precious Girl 6x6 paper pad and the extra project life cards at White Rose Craft LLC. This paper is amazing! The quality is very nice and thick and the texture is very nice to work with. The patterns are just precious and very fitting for a new baby girl. (shhhh...this just might be a baby shower gift!)

The project life cards have more than just cards in them. It comes with an element sheet that I used my pix scan mat and my cameo to cut out the images. I don't fussy cut and utilizing this machine and it's capabilities allowed me to skip the fussy cutting which is GREAT! I was really bad and didn't take a lot of pictures of me assembling the album but it is pretty much self explanatory. I did add some self adhesive mini pearls and diamonds for extra bling, after all this IS for a new baby girl and bling is required! I also used some glitter washi tape and my Wink of Stella pen for extra sparkle here and there. There are some photo mats that were cut with my Cricut Explore machine and other colors of coordinating cardstock. The hardest part about this project was laying out and picking what paper and embellishments to use where but in the end I think it turned out very nice and I hope that the recipient will fall in love with it like I have!  This first picture shows the box that the actual album is held in.

This and the following pictures show the actual album itself:

This grey pocket is the only pocket page in the album. I added it right at the beginning so that they could include any memorabilia from the hospital or a letter written from mom or dad. All sorts of fun stuff could be stored there if they want and I thought it was a nice add on for something special.

As you can see, there is a lot of room for pictures and journaling. I did consider stamping the photo mats with a "photo goes here" stamp that I have but in the end I decided against it in case they wanted to write something instead. Along with this album I am including some color coordinated cardstock so that they have extra if they want to add something to it themselves. I truly had fun with this project! Thanks for stopping by and sharing some love with me today. Here's to your own crafty fun this week, and remember you can do a LOT with only some cardstock and patterned paper so get to it!

Wild Rose Studio

This week at White Rose Crafts we are showcasing the Wild Rose Studio stamps and paper, both are incredible!!

I love their cute stamps and their papers are so much fun to work with. I created a card for my first project.

I fell in love with this adorable Bella with Flowers stamp. I did a fun technique that I need to do more often and water color the background. I just used a simple pallette of green and blues. I colored Bella herself with copics and colored pencils. For the flowers I used my zig markers. I finished it off with a Heidi Swap sentiment that I heat embossed.  

My next project is a fun wintry gift bag. I love sparkle and shine and winter is one of my favorite seasons. I used the Festive Florals paper pack as the base, I added some glittery washi tape and  then I layered the stamped image on to a circle die cut. I die cut a banner and stamped the sentiment on it. I colored the Snowman Family stamp with my zig markers for a fun water colored look. I finished it off with a piece of blue vintage lace and some  Doodles Paper Playground Sparkles Blend in Star Spangled.  I hope I have inspired you to try Wild Rose Studios! They are simply fabulous and fun to play with.

HeartcraftPaper planner layout

Happy 4th of July everyone! Today I am sharing with you a new planner layout that I did using the new release from HeartcraftPaper. I started by using a stencil and some distress oxide inks to create some texture. Then I used Hogwarts, Gemma, Harold, and some Wizarding Sentiments and arranged them on the page. I colored them using my copic markers. I finished it off by adding the title which I used candied apple distress oxides on. I hope I have inspired you to make something creative today on this special Holiday!

There is also still the grand opening sale going on so hurry over and do some shopping of your own!

HeartcraftPaper Challenge Blog Hop

Hello, Today we are having our first ever HeartcraftPaper challenge blog hop to kick off our Grand Opening, and I am so excited to be a part of it!! This month's theme is Anything Goes, which means you have LOTS of options so no reason for you not to play along with us! It is a month long challenge too so you have time as well!

For my project I used this new image called Wesley from the New Release!

I have used him to make a fun back to school gift card holder. I also used a new cut file, gift card Flap, from the store as well to create the "flap and holder" part of the inside card. It is a perfect card for students to kick off a fun start! I love that the flap and holder cut file can be used for ANY occasion that you need a gift card holder for. Birthdays, weddings, thinking of you, the possibilities are endless!

For the card front featuring Wesley, I colored him with copic markers. I used the Wizarding Sentiments which I distressed with some distress oxide inks for a grunge feel. 
For the inside I did some random stamping on the plain brown cardstock that I had cut for the holder. I used some Lawn Fawn ink for that. I really like how this came out and how much fun the recipient is going to have opening and shopping with this card. (the Michaels gc shown here was for example purposes only....LOL)

Below you will find links to the whole blog hop. I encourage you to check them all out for some awesome inspiration!
