Book Club – My Fabulous Literary Lushes

I am part of an absolutely fabulous book club (appropriately named) “Literary Lushes”.
We meet about once a month to discuss amazing books and drink high-end wine.
I love it.  These ladies are some of the most wonderful women that I’ve ever met (including my dear mother-in-law).
When I found this paper in one of the new DCWV stacks, I knew it was perfect for my book club photos.

The paper was pretty perfect on its own, but I jazzed it up a bit with pearl earrings and bling-dazzling jewelery.  I also matted the page with black and pink glitter card stock.  I topped the layout off with some retro-inspired crystal brads.

Birthday Girl

I recently made this birthday card for a very special 4-yr-old.  I thought the image looked just like her, so I was excited to make this unique greeting for her. 
I was also in the middle of moving, so I only had about 1/2 my scrapbook supplies on hand (how did I make it through without my goodies, you ask?  It wasn’t easy!)
I had no access to buttons, brads or ribbon, so I had to be a bit creative.  🙂 
I went a little Stickles crazy here and then embellished the card with tons of flowers and rhinestones.  The scalloped ovals and swirls in the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.

Pop-Up Graduation Card

I caught up with my music teacher from jr. high on Facebook (don’t you just love it there?!) and she asked me to make a special card for her son’s high school graduation.  She said he loves guitars and his favorite color is red.  She also sent a picture of him playing a guitar from his music video.
What a fun project!  I knew I wanted to go 3D in some way to make all the elements fit.  Here’s how it turned out…
I hand-cut this hat and used the tassel from the Wild Card Cricut cartridge.
I found this guitar image online and then cut it out by hand (using VERY small scissors and watching my favorite reality TV show).  I also used a needle and thread to add strings and finished it off with brads.
I had a lot of fun with this piece and am really happy with the way it turned out.
My teacher and her son loved the card and that is the best part of doing any project!!

DCWV = OMG!

For those of you who have not been to your neighborhood Michaels recently ~ you should probably print this entry so you can read it on the way before it’s too late.

Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) has released what I can only assume to be a private Michaels line (I have searched the Internet frantically for these page pads to no avail). They have about 4 or 5 lines of fabulous new paper packs! I was there the other day and went NUTS! I literally bought one of everything (I’m glad I did, too, since the store by my house is now out of stock!)

I remember sitting at every red light on the way home, flipping through each stack. Glittery pages beaming off the car beside me. Drivers looking confused and blinded by the brilliance.

The layout above is one of the new lines (The Family Collection). I really wanted to use this paper, so I had my son and his faithful side-kick pose on the couch (don’t act like I’m the only one here who takes pictures based on what paper/embellishments I want to use!) 

I simply added my photos and some Prima bling ~ easy as pie!

Here are some of my favorite pieces so far:
