Emilia's "You Are My Sunshine" Initial Nursery Decor

Hello!

Today I have a fun paper mache letter to share with you. This "E" is for sweet baby Emilia's nursery, which is decorated in a "You Are My Sunshine" theme. Emilia's mom sent me a video of her room, which is bright aquas and yellows.

Do you remember this fun cloud paper from CTMH's Dotty for You paper packet a while back? It was perfect! I love the little hearts on it for an extra pop of color, so I added just a few flowers to match. I cut the flowers using my favorite cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
The lagoon and tulip paper for the flowers and yellow around the outside edges of the "E" are also from the Dotty for You kit (hence the dots). The yellow paper for the flowers has flecks of glitter in it, it's from Joann's. I inked chocolate ink around the edges of the letter with a sponge dauber and finished it off with some Sparkle Flourishes.

Tada! I love it, and so does Emilia's family :)

Thanks for visiting today!

WSU Cougars "It's a Boy" Card

One of the sweet girls my hubby used to work with at WSU had a baby a few months after Kailyn was born. (And he's SOOOOO cute...check out her Instagram feed!) When she was still pregnant we sent her a little gift and I made this card to go with it.



The cute footprints are from a retired CTMH stamp set called Baby Impressions and "It's a Boy" is from a newer set called Wild Wonders, which coordinates with the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I got the fun paper at Craft Warehouse in Washington :)

Don't forget about my giveaway! Visit my Facebook page and share this photo to be entered to win!

Hey Foxy Card With Dry Embossing + A Giveaway!

Do you ever feel like something you create has to be absolutely perfect? I feel so pressured that the opening pages of Kailyn's scrapbook need to be just right. They really are almost done, but I'm still debating over some details, so I'll share just as soon as I finally finish!

I have started some of the "non-intro" pages using CTMH's new Picture My Life kits and it's going much faster! But I want to share the opening layouts first :)

So in the meantime, I have this cute little fox card to share with you. I loved a similar card that CTMH shared on Instagram and recreated it with my own spin. Mainly I added some sparkle :) (To see my giveaway, scroll all the way down.)


CTMH used washi tape, and I used shimmer trim to look like washi tape instead. You can't really tell in the photo, but I also added some glitz with my Wink of Stella brush pen in the grass and on the fox's nose and tail. I love the subtle shimmer that it adds!
 

Do you see how deep the dry embossing is? I LOVE the new embossing folders that CTMH now offers. What a fun quatrefoil pattern, too. There are several patterns to choose from, and they just so happen to be on special when you stock up on some cardstock to use them with.

When you purchase 2 packs of cardstock (single or multi-color combo packs), you get an embossing folder for FREE! Shop cardstock >

Here's what the entire February stamp of the month looks like. Cute, right? You can get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase on my CTMH website. It even coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge!

I am super close to 500 fans on my Facebook page, so I have an awesome giveaway for you! Head on over to my page and share to win!
