KL April Layout Sketch

Have I mentioned lately that I really like butterflies?!

Kiwi Lane's layout sketch for the month made me pretty happy: butterflies AND another printable title for you! Visit their blog HERE to play along!

Here is my sample:

I used Kiwi Lane's own Flutter paper! I LOVE that they have paper now!!!

The printable title fits perfectly inside a bunch of different Kiwi shapes:

Sometimes all your layout needs is a name and a date... and of course a cute butterfly quote:

It's refreshing that I don't feel the need to "over-embellish" my Kiwi layouts! Just some simple glitter pen and a few sparkles to highlight my favorite spots:

The paper does all the talking on this one!

MWM Lily #10

I HAD to do at least one of the Scrapbook Steals Lily series Mid Week Mojo on time!

My DAUGHTER'S name is Lily!!!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my of course 2-page version:

I have been waiting for an excuse to use my new train cutouts from Out On A Limb and here is it!!! I even have pictures all ready and waiting to put on!

Seriously, how cute is this title:

When I'm feeling ambitious (or guilty because I own a bazillion stamps I don't use) I like to stamp my journaling:

Yep, it takes QUITE a while! Every time I power through I end up loving the look, though, and my stamps are WAY cuter than my handwriting... so I'll keep "wasting" time doing it!

Go visit the Scrapbook Steals blog HERE to find out all about their Mid Week Mojo contests!

Then make your own!

KL April Card Sketch

Kiwi Lane is doing something FUN and different with the card sketch this month... A free printable!!!

Go to Kiwi Lane's blog HERE to see the sketch, print your own sentiment, and enter to WIN!

Here is my sample:

Not to brag, but I LOVE how this one turned out!

Cute printable:

I added just a bit of glitter pen around the white edges of my butterfly and the outside of the card base. Butterflies always look better with a little shimmer!

I popped up my flower petals and all 3 layers of butterfly wings:

It's even cuter in real life!!!

Go make your own!

April Layouts

Yep, LayoutS again!

My Close To My Heart scrapbooking group needs to double up this month so we don't miss out on any of the cute paper soon to be retiring!

First layout:

We are using the Penelope Paper Packet, matching Penelope Compliments, Silver Puffies, and Silver Shimmer Trim.

The "Spring" sticker from the Compliments was perfect for the title:

Butterflies and glitter make me happy!

Second layout:

We are using the Regatta Paper Packet and Blue Enamel & Gems Duos.

Since there are soooo many different directions you can go with this paper, I left it title-less. I'm going to put my title in the white waves paper on the left page here:

Just a few accent embellishments on this one:

I liked the cleaner look with this paper!

Scrap away!
