More Than Chocolate by Kim

Hi everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards here to share another card with you.  This time I used the Bears Sweetheart Cut File with Printables. I wanted to use all the goodies provided in this cut file; but there are so many goodies in this file, I didn't have enough card!  So I decided I would make a tri-fold card and do a triple-play!

Here's the front of my card:
 
 Here's the center panel:


And here's the inside: 


If you'd like to know more about how the card came together, please come visit me at my blog.  If you do, please be sure to say, "hello".

DCWV Cartographer Paper Stack
I used the new DCWV Cartographer Paper Stack. 
DCWV Cartographer Stack Card Melinda Beltran
I have to say that I wasn’t so enthused with stack when I first saw it. BUT once I opened it up and looked through, I was inspired. The challenge is to use the sketch they provided.

Here is the sketch.

Here is a closer look at the sentiment. I designed the card with my Pazzles and cut out all the papers. I then embossed the sentiment.

PCW and Paper House Productions Layout

Hello crafty friends!
Today I am sharing my second post for the  Paper House Productions design team. I got the opportunity to work with the fantastic Southwest Adventure Paper Crafting Kit.  I decided to create scrapbook layout.  It showcases my beautiful niece Taylor. Here is what I came up with.

Here’s a closer look at the pretty Mosaic Butterfly stickers. I adhered them to some Kraft cardstock. I fussy cut them out of the Kraft cardstock and then used some foam tape to give them some lift. I sprinkled a few sequins around them for a little extra touch.

Here are the feathers I created and cut out. I dipped the tips in some gold glitter. I added one of the colored feathers from the cardstock sticker set included in the kit. I will be uploading the newest feather collection cutting file set to PCW very soon!

Here’s a closer look at one of the cardstock sticker sayings. I love all the different stickers and sentiments on the sheet.

I used one of the journal cards that is on one side of printed paper. I cut the sentiment out and used some foam tape to give it a little lift.

Here’s a closer look at one of the journaling cardstock stickers. I left it blank so my niece could write her thoughts.

One last look at the completed layout. This layout features a picture of my beautiful niece Taylor. She is such a free spirit and marches to the beat of her own drum. This kit was the perfect choice to compliment her picture.
