Live Beautifully - Cards, Cards, Cards

How about some close ups of some of the cards I have made using this special paper pack that is available during the month of May in honor of National Scrapbooking Month?  I will be showing you at least 10 different cards using this wonderful paper pack during this month.  Get yours now while supplies last.


For this card I adhered the paper featuring Sea Glass to front of a white card base. On top of this I added the Gold Foil Flower paper, a strip of Gold Dot paper through the middle of the card with Gold & White Twine wrapped around it. I added a second layer of the paper featuring Sea Glass , a piece of white card stock and  then a piece of the white with gold dot to make a set of mats that I then adhered to center of card using 3-D Foam Tape. For the final step I embellish card with Thin Cut “Happy Birthday” title cut from Sea Glass card stock.





For this card I adhered the Slate Striped paper to front of card. I then embossed a piece of White Daisy Cardstock with Damask (retired but you could use any folder) Embossing Folder. I stamped the flower and 3 leaves using Sea Glass Ink and cut them out.  I used 3-D foam tape to adhere them to the lower left corner of the card.  Finally I stamped ‘Be your own kind of beautiful’ using Whisper Ink on White Daisy Cardstock, dovetail right hand side, adhere to Slate Stripes and dovetail. Add title to front of card.

Live Beautiful Layout #3

I am continuing to play with the May 2017 National Scrapbook Month Specials, hop over to my website at www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com and check out these beautiful papers and amazing deals.  

Here you go, layout #3 using the Live Beautifully paper pack and stamp set which are being offered by Close to My Heart as part of the May 2017 National Scrapbook Month Specials....



I think the use of the thin cut LOVE is just great on this page.  I am also happy with the different look I got when I stamped the roses using pomegranate ink on pixie card stock, a completely different look than stamping them on white.  I also used a marker to color the white shimmer trim pink to match my paper.  I just love that I can chose to do that and make my shimmer trim any color I want.  Remember this paper pack and stamp set that I used here will only be available during the month of May 2017 so be sure to get yours now.  You can order them both from www.craftwithronnie.ctmh.com or by clicking the shopping cart at the top of this blog.  As always - Happy Crafting!!!!
