Make Me Smile

There's a new challenge at The Kraft Journal blog.  The "Make Me Smile" Challenge inspired me to create a Kraft mini-album using Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.  To create the album I cut the 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock down the center vertically at 4 1/2.  Then I folded each piece in half and attached them back to back accordion style.  I covered the front with designer papers and coordinating stickers from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line, then tied it off with some Twill Tying Tape in white.  The inside is filled with more Kraft Outlet goodies, like the mini-clothespin and several stained grungy tags.  

Here's an overall view...
and some close-ups...

I just love the grungy tags from The Kraft Outlet.
For some more inspiration that will "Make You Smile"
visit The Kraft Journal blog.
If you like this Dear Lizzy line available through MemoryWorks,
you might want to come back tomorrow for details on a giveaway here at my blog!

Warm Wishes

I'm ending this Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line series of cards on a sweet note.
I layered some papers from the 6 x 6 pad.
Added a few stickers and some burlap string from Jody's Etsy Shop
and stamped a sentiment from
Close To My Heart "A Garden" stamp set.
Hope you enjoyed this series of cards.
I made all 10 (including the two featured on the MemoryWorks blog last Saturday)
in less than two hours.
When you have a 6 x 6 paper pad and coordinating elements right in front of you, it makes it so much easier to create.

Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line
I used the ice cream sheet of patterned paper,
layered on a tag, a scrap and a sticker topped with a chipboard ice cream cone.
How sweet and simple is that?

Time for fun...
I sure had fun making these cards with the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 
6 x 6 pad.  The journaling block with sentiment and the strip all came from one sheet of patterned paper.
The star is a chipboard shape from the coordinating line.

More Dear Lizzy...
This one has a Neapolitan Tag with an
Ephemera Flower layered on top of it.
The "hello" sentiment is from Close To My Heart.
Here is a close up of the layered flower...
I just love those flower pieces, as simple as adding a sticker but it looks like
you created it with all those layers!

For You

Here is a card made with the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Collection.
The prints and colors in this line are so sweet and perfect for summertime.
Here I used an Ephemera Flower accent.
It is basically one large, layered sticker.
So easy!

Dear Lizzy

This Saturday I am posting some card inspiration at 
the MemoryWorks blog.
I was inspired by Kelly Holbrook's card to bust into my Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6 x 6 pad.
While I was add it, I created 10 cards using this paper pad and coordinating products.
I tell ya when you have those coordinating products right there the creating is easy breezy!
Here's a sneak peek of all the cards.  

I'll post each cards separately throughout the week.
Ya'all come back now!

A Little More LB Love...

I just love LilyBee papers so I snatch up the 6 x 6 pads so I get all the lovely patterns where the scale is smaller, so perfect for card-making.

I love Kraft too, can ya tell?
All the Kraft die cuts were created using the
Art Philosophy cartridge which is exclusive to Close To My Heart.
These cards were made with the Lily Bee "Handmade" collection.
