Heart Strings with Frosted Designs...

This week's Friday Challenge over at Frosted Designs is STRING ART...

My son LOVES to draw and I love that I can scan his artwork and have it printed along with my photos...I can scrapbook traditionally like in the layout below or in pocket-style albums!

--------------------------------------------------------------
Here's a close-up...I plan on making a 2nd layout that will include some other artwork as well as some details about my love for his drawings!
-----------------------------------------------------
Here's a close-up of the string art I chose to create...I used my Stitch Guide to punch a heart-shape then added some brads so it would be easy to weave in and out with my string.

We'd love for your to play along and link up your project...a lucky winner will win a prize from our Sponsor, Helmar Worldwide...a prize package full of Helmar Adhesives!

Totally Turtle Hello...

Hey stampers...it's my turn to post over at Craftin Desert Divas!!! I'm going with a simple card to say HELLO!!!

I used one of my favorite Craftin Desert Divas Stamps...Totally Turtle (so versatile and turtley CUTE!)

-----------------------------------------------------------
To add a little something extra to this card, I made a 3/4 fold and the "Hello" pennant hanging off the edge...
-------------------------------------------------------
I pop-dotted this cute little turtle with thin 3D Foam Tape to add a little bit of dimension...

I just can't get enough this cute little stamp set...Totally Turtle...you can see some other things I've made with it {{{here}}}

The other stamp set I used is Simply Said...I'm telling you that this "HELLO" is one of the crispest stamps I've ever inked!!!



Love You MOWER...

Katy here with a weekend share for the PPPR Blog...

When I saw this week's FREEBIE, I knew I had to use it to make a layout. I always tell my children (and my husband) "I love you more" or "I love you mostest". I decided to use this file as a play on words.


Here's the file I used and it's FREE but you'd better hurry before it gets moved to the "not free" section...
