Pretty in Pink!

I love the beautiful shade of pink on the Urban Lily Pink Flamingo paper and thought it would be a wonderful background for a photo I had of my neice. I also cut out some black flowers from the Lala Looliloo paper. To give it some dimension I added a pink paislee overlay and some buttons. And the finishing touch was this great pink chipboard circle from Urban Lily!

Gift Card Holders

Happy Sunday! It's Janet here today.
I don't know about you but I always seem to purchase at least one gift card for Christmas so
I decided to make a couple of gift card holders this year.

I whipped these 2 up very quickly but you could of course embellish them more elaborately if you wish to

Here are the insides.

I used Blizzard and Snowflake from the Oh So Merry Collection.
You can make 2 gift cards from just one sheet of paper. How awesome is that!!

Colorful Fun

This is a photo of my youngest daughter picking some late season dandelions.  This is one of her favorite things to do.  This paper is so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up.   I did add a few little details, but even though this layout is simple in creation, it is bold in visual beauty.  For this layout I used:

Happy Everything Collection: Beautiful & Celebrate
Urban Cut:  Alphabet & Mini Book
 I cute these cute little butterflies from the Celebrate paper and added some liquid pearls for the body.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA friends!!

Is it Christmas time?

Hi everyone. I know many of you think I'm crazy talking about Christmas, especially since the USA hasn't even had Thanksgiving yet. Well, today I was taking my daughter to an appointment when we encountered SNOW!!!! I know most of you would say well I had snow last month already but where I live we just don't get snow very often. So seeing that white stuff made me get into Christmas mode.
I don't normally make all of my Christmas cards just because I have way too many to make. However there are a select group that do get a special home made one.

This year I decided to go easy and clean. I used the gorgeous Mayella Petite from Urban Lily and a border punch for the tree
and for the wreath I used a Martha Stewart punch and Tim Holtz stamp.
I really love using non-themed papers for special themes such as Christmas. What will you be creating for Christmas?

The coolness factor!

My oldest son is all about rock n roll and being cool. We had fun a few weeks back with a photo shoot downtown where we live. We picked a Sunday where most things were closed and took some great shots on back streets, alleys, old store fronts, etc.. My challenge was to be able to scrap these without losing the urban why not use URBAN lily!!! I chose the polo pattern paper from the blink collection for my background. I simply cut two sheets in half and only used the dot portions for my background. I then added some black glimmer mist to hide the seams. I also cut out several different sizes of stars from Sassy from the Mayella collection and Celebrate from the Happy Everything collection. I also added an Urban Lily Answer It round chipboard embellie and a couple of rubons and journaling strips. I love the way it turned out and so does my son!

Congratulation Cards

This week I actually needed 2 Congrats cards.

What I love about Urban Lily papers is how they make it so quick and easy to pull a project together.

From just one piece of patterned paper from the Blink collection I was able to make 2 cards.
All I did was just add some matching cardstock, a couple of brads, stickers for my sentiment and some Stickles and "bam" my cards were done.

Here they are:

Thanks for joining me today!

Using those Halloween Photos

So now we have all taken these fab and striking Halloween photos and as the feast is over we have time to document and save those precious memories.
After misting some warm orange and gold on my background white card stock, I used the Urban Lily Mooch and Sugar Collection together with the Urban Cut mini book bright to cut elements in various colors of yellow, orange and red. I then outlined all elements that didn't already have a border and put them randomly under the photo. I also used black card stock to highlight the photos after sanding the edges to make a bright contrast.
Some alphas, some flowers and bling, washi tape and a clip, and finally a stamp and then I am ready - easy peasy.

Supply list Bus eller godis:

Canvas Corp White cardstock

Urban Lily Mooch Hyperactive ULP535

Urban Lily Sugar Collection Honey ULP421

Urban Lily Urban Cut Mini Bok Bright ULP341

Other: Mist, AC Dear Lizzy Alphas, BC Chipboard, paper clip, Twine, Jenni Bowlin Mini Alphas, YouDo flower collection and bling, washi tape, Stamp from Gummiapan

Thinking of You Card

I had a friend of mine that I haven't spoken to for quite some time, so I wanted to send her a card and let her know I was thinking about her.  

For this card I used May Ella Pure and Bliss papers, along with Everyday Lily Sushi Stripe paper.   I did include a little bit of personal stash items, such as the cheesecloth, flowers and chipboard chicken wire.  For the edges I used some blue distress ink and I added blue glitter glue to the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and feel free to check out my blog as well!  Blog!!

Everybody Jump Jump!

Summer lovin! I know, I know,...summer is only a memory now but I still have a ton of fun summer pictures to scrap and I don't want to wait until next year. This is where Urban Lilly's Mooch Gossip paper comes in. I love the bright, fun colors and free-styling patterns.

I made the banner at the top using Urban Lily ATC Cards Blanks. I made a triangle template and then traced them onto the colors I wanted.

The giant, pink heart with curcly Q's is from another sheet of Smooch paper which I attached to my page using a dimensional adhesive.

Happy paper crafting!

Timeless Beauty!!!

Hello everyone!!! Today I will share with you this layout I made  of my Mom, my youngest sister and her  daughters!!!   Urban Lily patterned papers are so great for embellishing a page also.  In this layout I wanted a simple pattern to go with my black and white photo. I simply cut out the print of this beautiful UL paper to create a simple page . I added ribbon and stamping to complete this page. Simple, fast and easy! :) Thanks so much for looking and being here with us at US blog.

It's me, Adora!!!!!
Until next time!!!
