Bella Bling Class Tonight!

Oh, I really love teaches these classes at Urban Trends! Tonight we will enjoy Bellas & glitter!!! MM has these great "glue" stickers. It is adhesive on both sides which allow you you stick on glitter, beads, flock etc.
I ended up with extra stickers so the girls will be able to add a few more and use some of their own creativity!
Hope you all enjoy your evening!

Oooops! (Beate's Gate Card)

Of course, the last part that I colored (his face) I worked at getting a light flesh color too long and the paper started pilling which smudged some of the outline. So, I tried to use a find brown marker, but it wasn't so fine.
I just didn't have the time to re-do the whole thing so, his face is just gonna look a little funny!
Thanks for the sketch Beate! Great layout for something different!

More Card Kits

Oh My Goodness!!! I delivered 14 card kits to Urban Trends this last Wednesday afternoon and by Saturday afternoon she only had 5 left!!! So, I worked away this weekend to make more.

Keep in mind, these need to stay simple and they need to focus on the patterned paper, cardstock and flowers she sells in her shop. I just add a few stamps and ribbons and hopefully they will continue to sell.

Little tip of the day: On the first set of cards, I wanted to punch the big scallop circle out of the same paper I used for the back mat but I didn't have any more. So, I actually punched the scallop from the back mat then covered it up with my next layer of paper!!! No one will ever know!!! ;)

Super Simple

I needed some super simple, and quick cards and was drawn to my black & white stash! This first card was actually using cream and the second card is white.

The big flower is from a Bazzill Bling pack and they are FABULOUS!!! I thought they might be a wee bit big to work with but cutting them in half did the trick!

There are so many amazing pattern pappers out there that sometimes you just don't want to mess with them. So, all I did was layer some cardstock, white & black, add some ribbon and primas and its enough.
See, super simple but I love them!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Card Kits

Urban Trends Scrapbooking Shop asked me to make card kits for her to sell. Hmm, the trick is to make attractive cards with simple techniques so when someone buys them they will be able to figure out how to put them together!!!
I made 2 packs of 6 for each of these 7 designs. Each pack has 1 finished card and all the parts for 5 more. Wowzers, did I feel like I accomplished a ton today! I hope she likes them!!!
