Breakfast Pizza

I received some product from Scrapbook Memories and More to play with and here is my first project. Make sure you go and check out the store. So proud to say they are Canadian. I wish I lived close enough to visit their brick and mortar store. Maybe my friends in Alberta could go and tell them I said "Hi"!

Eventually there will be a tutorial on how to re-create it for yourself and I will let you know when it is up on their blog.

I used the latest sketch from Inspired Blueprints. Check it out for some inspiration!
Some close-ups for you.

I am entering this layout in Catered Crop's Mellow Yellow challenge.

Dynamic Duos Challenge # 53

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Dyanmic Duos. I think it's a great vibrant colour duo and you will also notice that there is a "Dessert Option" which is a kid themed card.

As you can see I kept my project "kid" themed but it's not a card. I made these cute little lollipop covers. Wouldn't they be great as party favours?

Ink: Memento, Versafine, ColorBox
Punch: SU
Dies: Your Next Stamp, Wplus9
Stamps: The AlleyWay, myStampBOX

Here is a closeup. Of course I had to use some googly eyes!! HaHa!!
And a side view so you can see the lollipop.
I hope you will stop by Dynamic Duos and join us for this weeks challenge. You have until noon (PDT) on Thursday May 23rd to join in.
You should go and check out the blogs of the rest of the DT members and see their awesome projects in detail.

Monday Monday

Merry Monday that is!

Once again I played along with the latest sketch challenge # 61. I used my Cameo to cut the image out of some glittery paper.

Now after I made this card I wondered how it would look with the beautiful glittered paper as my base and the image in white.

And then I saw the negative image sitting on my desk and another card was born!
Cardstock: Neenah, A.C.
PP: A.C. Pow glitter paper
Pearls: Kaisercraft, Prima

With a minimum amount of supplies I have 3 more Christmas cards ready to go. Yay!!
Which one do you like best?

Dynamic Duos # 52

It's a new week at Dynamic Duos and this week the challenge is to use any past Dynamic Duo challenge. Cool!

It's a celebration week too. Dynamic Duos is having their One Year Anniversary! Huge Congrats!!!

I chose Real Red and Island Indigo as my past Duo.
I recently purchased some of the Uncharted Waters collection from Glitz and thought that the paper I used for my background was perfect for the Indigo colour.
I added just a pop of Red by using the twine and the heart that is coming from the whale's spout.
Cardstock: Wplus9
Stamps: Wplus9
PP& Rhinestone: Glitz
Ink: Versafine, Memento, SU, SEI
