I decided to make a wall hanging for my mom's birthday using pictures of my 3 munchkins. I used chipboard coasters and covered them with Reece cardstock and patterned paper. I cut out my mats and pictures using my Coluzzle and coluzzle companion (love them!). I colored my images with watercolor pencils and cut out around them.
I decided after I had them togther that they still "needed" something. I decided then to add some paper piercing around the circles. I used my paper piercer with a circle piece of plastic canvas. You can see the piercing if you look carefully at the close up.
I love this first card, which uses a tag and paper from the Lilly Ana SWIC, because it takes a paper I would normally only think of for girl cards and makes a great guy card.
The other supplies on this card are, Lilly Ana cardstock, white cardstock, button, lime green Scrappers Floss, and Beaux Arts Blue Palette ink. I also used a white gel pen to add some highlighting on the whale.
This second card uses the same papers, along with my coluzzle and scalloped punch. I added the white around the scallop with a white gel pen. I used the stamp set "Running Stitches" and Lilly Ana ribbon on the patterned paper. It was a fun, quick, and easy card. Hope you enjoy!

The scrapbook page uses Lilly Ana patterned paper,
cardstock, ribbon and hardware. It also uses the White cardstock strips that I am now hooked on. The flowers were stamped in Noir Palette on white paper and then cut out, which is why the swirls that were on the original flower stems are missing.
The title is stamped in Palette Bella Rose and Chartruese using "Simple Bet" and "Swirly Bet"

This 8x8 scrapbook page was so fun to make, of course part of that is because I love scrapping my kids. The stamp sets I used are "Hello Baby" and "You Are". I colored the image with watercolor pencil and stamped the sentiment with Bella Rose. I also used the Bella Rose Palette to distress the edges of all the papers. The large scalloped strip across the top comes from the White Cardstock strips TAC sells in the back of the base catty...these were so much fun to work with that I ordered more on the last order I placed, along with some more Lilly Ana, as I have fallen in love with both. The last thing I did was place little pink buttons in the middle of each of the scallops.
This card is 4x4. Besides using Lilly Ana cardstock and paper I also used DCWV green cardstock (Apple Green I think), Lilly Ana ribbon, a circle punch and a scalloped circle punch. I then used the Extreme white gel pen around the edges of the scallop. The ink is Bella Rose Palette, and those are mini brads down in the corner.

I made this card with my Aunt Rhonda in mind (her bday is the same as my SIL Rose's) but it ended up a little more "young" looking than I had intended, so now I am not sure. Maybe I will save it for March when her daughter has a bday...she will be 13 this year, and for some reason this card looks more suitable to her.
