Stepping into Spring with Clear Scraps!

Hello Clear Scraps fans! Aren't you so excited it is April and warming up? Today and I would love to share with you a couple of projects.  

I am areally loving the latest releases and I got so excited when I saw the new Baketball Chipboard Album.  It was absolutely perfect for my daughter...the star basketball player.  I decided I wanted to give her something to look at and keep of her first year playing high school basketball.  Let's have look!

Basketball album1
I decided to add all kids of different patterned paper to the front of this album, just for fun.  I also traced and cut out, in black cardstock, the front of the mini album and glued it on.  I found this title at my local scrapbooking store, which has a lot of scrapbooking supplies for our local high schools.  

Basketball album2
With the rest of the pages, I simply traced the chipboard pages onto patterned paper and adhered them.  Then I added embellishments.  I love how I can customize these albums!

I love how this turned out and now my daughter has an album to treasure.  It's true...basketball is her life, she love it and it is her game!  
Now, for a Send it Clear Card!  I used the Fancy Send it Clear Card.  I wanted this one to have a Spring look and feel to it, so I added lots of flowers.

Easter Banner with Imaginisce's Welcome Spring!

Good morning Imaginisce fans.  Today I would like to share with you another Imaginisce project using Welcome Spring!   

I really don't have much in the way of Easter decor for my home, so I decided to make a cute banner, but instead of just one, I did three.



This cute banner is so fun because it has the "Happy Easter" as well as some adorable cut out eggs.  


I simply cut out my eggs using my Silhouette Cameo and used a little bit of tape to adhere them to some twine.  It was so simple and easy and a fun way to add a little bit of Easter decor with not too much work.  I know for me, I am always looking for easy and adorable and this is it.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you are checking out the Imaginisce Blog for all of the amazing projects by the Imaginisce DT.

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce Patterned Paper (Welcome Spring)
American Crafts (Twine)

Stamping with Imaginisce!

Stamping always seems to be my weak spot, but when I say weak, I mean I am not very good at it.  When it comes to Imaginisce's Stamps...I think I do pretty good.  I love the deep impressions, making it hard to for me to mess it up. 



I decided to heat emboss my images using American Crafts Embossing Powder.  I love how my stamped images turned out.  


I love the butterfly stamp from the Welcome Spring Collection and decided I wanted it all over my page, resulting in what you see here.


Thanks for stopping by.  Stop by the Imaginisce Blog to see how the DT is using Imaginisce Stamps and please share with us on Facebook how you use Imaginisce's Stamps!

Summer...Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock and Sketch Pens!

Well...this is my final project for Silhouette and I have really enjoyed my time being on the Silhouette Design Team. What a fantastic opportunity this has been.  I have learned a lot while on this team especially from the other amazing design team members.  Thank you Silhouette and Silhouette fans for all of the sweet comments and support.
Now, for my last project.  I never know what I am going to create until I sit down and start.  All I have to do is take a look at all of my Silhouette goodies and it always inspires me.  I made this fun layout using the Silhouette Sketch Pens and Adhesive Backed Cardstock.

I sketched out the title and then cut it out.  I love the looked of this, specially with the white cardstock...it just pops!

Like those cute clouds in the background?  It is a Cloud Mask Shape that I cut out using Adhesive Backed Cardstock and then I simply stuck patterned paper to the back to get various colored clouds.  So, easy to do and such fun effect.
