Stay A Little Bit Wild


I followed the above sketch from Paper Issues to complete my layout. The main patterned paper is from Pink Paislee Wild Child 08 and the title- Stay A Little Bit Wild is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio Bohemian Dream Journal sheet. I purchased both from Paper Issues, but the Wild Child set is no longer available. The photo mats and date strip are from Scrapbooking Memories Reversible Cardstock Borders & Accents. I used Studio Calico Dear Lizzy roller stamp and Versa Fine Onyx Black pigment ink to stamp the date- Sep 17, 2017. The heart sticker is from Glitter Foam Stickers Collection from Dollar Tree. The picture is of me at the Grand Canyon for the first time and that's what the journaling states that I typed on my computer. I made this layout as simple as possible since the background paper is so busy. You still have until March 4 to enter a layout in with the sketch if you are a member of the Paper Issues Facebook group. TFL and have a great weekend!

I decided to make a Valentine's Day card for this hop since Valentine's Day is coming up. My sweet item is a cupcake stamp from Unity Stamp Company glad you were born February Unity Sentiment Kit 2016. I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink on typing paper and colored it in with various sets of colored pencils. The card base is Recollections 4 in x 5.5 in Value Pack Cards & Envelopes. The patterned paper is from Recollections 6 in x 6 in Home Basics Paper Pad that I trimmed down to fit the card. The Happy Valentine's Day stamp is a Craft Smart stamp that I also stamped with the same VersaFine ink on typing paper and colored with some of the same colored pencils. The heart sticker duo is from a Paper House Productions 3D sticker set. I wanted to keep the card CAS (Clean And Simple) since the paper is kinda busy. That's all I have for you today. Have a great weekend and Valentine's Day!!

Next head on over to (REBECCA I'm sure she has something sweet and awesome to share!
