I used this fun Adornments die in my project. This die is designed to decorate straws and pencils and they are just perfect for creating these fun decorations for parties and gifts.

Paper Smooches -  Adornments Die

I coloured the bunny and little chick from Spring Fling and adhered it to the adornment die cut that was already wrapped around the pencil. There is a little flag die and I stamped a simple sentiment on there to complete this trio of decorations.

Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve got a fun card to share that combines Simon Says Stamp‘s Hop to It! release with stamp sets from Mama Elephant and Paper Smooches for a simple Thank You card.

I stamped the flowers from Watercolour Friendly Flowers on vellum and heat embossed it with some white EP. I cut them out and sewed them directly onto my cardbase. This is my favourite way to adhere vellum :)

I stamped the little chick from Spring Fling and adhered it in the middle finished off with a simple sentiment from Bear Hugs.

Release - Hop To It

Thank you Simon Says Stamp and Heidi for inviting me to participate in this awesome release!

Hello and welcome back to Day 2 of Mama Elephant‘s February release highlight! The team is sharing our projects using the new stamp set Zenith Borders that’s great for creating some fun borders and backgrounds.

I stamped the overlapping triangles on just the top part of the card base and painted some gold paint in some of the empty spaces. I coloured the little kitty from Three Amigos and applied some tissue paper underneath to soften up the black background.

Hello and welcome back to Day 2 of Mama Elephant‘s February release highlight! We have another cute set called Three Amigos that’s perfect for those “from all of us” cards.

I created a very simple card by stamping out Mr. Fox and colouring him with my copics. I stamped a couple of those crumpled up paper balls and stuffed it around him. Looks like he made some mistakes before getting the sentiment correct :)

Stamp Highlight – Bear Hugs

February 17, 2015

Good morning everyone! Today, we’ve got some major cuteness overload as we focus on the Bear Hugs stamp set from Mama Elephant‘s February release.

This is definitely my favourite card from this series and I’m excited to show it to you on our first day of the stamp highlights!

Instead of a traditional blending for a starry sky, I decided to create a geometric pattern on the top half of the card base and blended in some solid colours in shades of blue and purple.

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!  Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

For my card, I used the adorable Bear Hugs along with its coordinating creative cuts. I cut a frame out using Polaroid Fun and layered it over each photo. I stamped the two words from Three Amigos under the frame for a simple comment.

I finished the card off with a sentiment from Bear Hugs for a fun Mother’s day card :)

February with Citrus Twist

February 13, 2015

Good morning! I’ve got some project life and scrapbook layouts to share this morning. It’s been a long time since I last posted!

I’ve made some thought on my project life pages this year and I will be recording my stories in a mixture of pocket life and scrapbook pages. The scrapbook page is usually an “addition” to one of the photos during that week.

So here is my full spread for week 6.

Week 6

Here is my traditional pocket life page on the left side. Since I don’t take enough photos during the week, 1 page was good enough for me.


I layered the colour cardstock underneath a star die cut background for a colourful background before adhering a gold label on top.


Here is the right side for a traditional scrapbook page. I expanded on my “starbucks collection” story and took a few shots of my favourite cards.


I began by cutting up the coloured cardstock in tiny squares. The gold squares? I cut down the gold heart stickers from the PL main kit :) I laid them out on a piece of 12×12 paper and stitched them in place.


Here is a close up of the stitching, the photos and the journaling. The word snippet stickers were just perfect for this!


Thanks for looking!
