So the content this week will be light on layouts. 

Work trip is seriously interfering with creativity.

Hopefully, I'll have the weekend to be scrap happy and play with all the lovely things that I got in my SC kit this month. Horray!

I still have scraps from last month that I want to use, I just loved that kit so much, I could almost marry it! :)

Butterfly Punches!

Another post dealing with my favorite tool (Martha Stewart Bfly Punches) and the Spring...

Another great project from LollyChops, derived from the Ali Edwards Project that I posted yesterday.  Instructions for these beautiful hybrids can be found at the LollyChops link above.


The asymmetrical design is very cool as well. Hmmm, maybe I can use this sort of thing in a layout? I may try that tonight!

Scorpios and Scrap Happy

After a long and intense day at work, I got home last night to find:

(1) my sweet husband already grilling dinner
(2) my sweet puppy giving lots of licks 
(3) my new kit from Studio Calico
Doesn't that just sound perfect?

In addition to a blazingly beautiful kit this month...THIS Martha Stewart punch I ordered was also in the box!
So, on my ride into work today, I was thinking about how much I love my MS punches.  I do.  They're so feminine and girly (which is not always me) and they always help me add that dimension and little something to my pages.

I get on my page here to profess my affection and I have a comment from SC designer Sasha Farina!  I die! :)  Her blog is awesome and today she's professing her love for Martha's butterfly punches as well!  So, I'll just agree with Sasha, my fellow Scorpio!

I will leave you with this inspiration... discovered when I was looking for the photo above:

Through a bunch of different blogs, I tracked this beauty back to Ali Edwards who has an amazingly beautiful blog.  Anyway, that link takes you to her step by step directions for this really cool project.

I think I could do this... :)

February Layouts - Studio Calico Kit

 In anticipation of my new kit coming in the mail (maybe tomorrow!), I thought I would post my layouts from the Studio Calico kit from February.  Which I loved.  



I may have a couple more coming, but I'm still working on them.

(I am also practicing some blog security, so forgive the "watermark" on the layouts. )

Inspiration: Eggspiration

How 'bout them apples...errr...eggs!?

Italian Alabaster Eggs from Williams-Sonoma.  Check out the color combos in these trays!

These two crates are beautiful, although they might be a bit too basic to get good pop on a page.  But the assorted colors set of 24 eggs really has some great color combo potential.  

I am going to see what I can make with the new SC kit and these colors.  

What do you think?
