Today I am using the Alphalicious Cartridge, the April Showers Cartridge and the Inspired Heart Cartridge.
My first project is a scrapbook layout I made for a friend and her special little boy Ethan.  They have been through so much recently and I wanted to let her know I was thinking of her. 

I took a sheet of paper from the DCWV Safari Kids Paper and then I cut the faith and love from Inspired Heart Cart. This is such a beautiful cartridge with wonderful sayings. 
I wanted to keep it pretty simple so I just added a pinwheel I made using a Martha Stewart punch and added a little ribbon I had as well as cut another strip of the Safari Kids paper to add to the bottom. I then used my fabulous i-top and added a medium size brad. This is rapidly becoming my new favorite tool! 

Add a little bit of stickles, (Distressed Vintage Photo and Rangers Lime Green) and I hope she likes it! 
You can read more about Ethan on facebook in the Prayers for Ethan group.




My second project started out as a different card that when finished, I was not happy with. It was my first try at a slider card so maybe next time. :)

Anyhow, this is Imaginesce Hippity Hop paper and I can't tell you how beautiful it is. I purchased this from Erica and I believe it will be available in her store soon. 

I cut a strip of 2 3/4 of one side and 1 3/4 of the other side and after inking, placed them on my card. Using the April Showers card, I cut the umbrella and rain boots at 2.5 inches. Added April cut at 1.5 and used the I-top to add a little extra. Some stickles, liquid pearls - my favorite new product and a spritz of glimmer, here it is. 
I know it is not quite April yet, but we have had no snow and lots of rain, so I am just jumping ahead.


Thanks for looking and if you get lost, I will have the lineup at the bottom. You next stop is Yvette and I can't wait for you to see her wonderful creations!
