These wheels are turning!!


Happy Tuesday friends! We are still a little under the weather in my household, but getting better. I was able to sit down last night and create a few projects. I was completely inspired last week with a fabulous card by Cambria. As soon as I had seen this card, I wanted to make a scrapbook page with it. I will admit that I love punches and I love it when there are new ways to use punches. I had seen this flower months ago made from the oval punch and fell in love with it back then. So, the wheels have been turning. The flowers are made from the small and large oval punches by Stampin' Up! If you are a punchie type of gal, you will love this punch. I used the new designer paper in the spring mini and matted it on Cool Caribbean paper. I used a few stamp sets on this page. I love the new Office Accoutrement. Many great uses for this stamp set. I stamped the flowers in So Saffron onto So Saffron Cardstock. I took my paper piercer and added a few holes around the flowers to give them a little texture. I also added a few more of the smaller flowers in So Saffron around the page. Some I stamped off so you could barely see them. This is what I love about using stamps on scrapbook pages. You can make your own designer paper. I used my Taken with Teal marker and inked up the brackets from this same set and stamped. Then used Wonderful Words and stamped LOVE inside the brackets. Lastly, I used the Doodle This set along with the Doodle alphabet (which I ADORE!!!) and stamped around one of the doodles. I used my white gel pen to add a few accents and a black fine tip marker to add some doodles around the flowers. I really cannot get enough of the doodles. I just like the way it adds that punky flair to a page or any design.
Well, time to get back to reality. It is Tuesday. If you follow my blog you know what Tuesdays are. It is already late morning and I haven't even started. Blah Blah Blah!!!
