Nikki Sivils & Basically Bare Team Up

Hey there everyone, so today I have a super fun layout to share with you.  Basically Bare shared some  fabulous goodies with us and I had so much fun creating with them.

Last summer was my first CHA experience and I had the chance to meet Nikki Sivils and Katrina those girls!  I couldn't think of a better layout to share then one with these Divas!

On this layout I used Nikki Sivils Messages line and cute little burlap buttons, Xyron adhesive, and Basically Bare Blossoms.  Here are a couple of closeup photos.

On a couple of the blossoms I altered them with pattern paper, then on the blossom on the top I stained it with Ranger distress stain, then stamped over it with a Wendy Vecchi stamp.

Thank you to Basically Bare for sharing some goodies with us and thanks to all of you for stopping by today.

Messages & A Little Mixing } Nikki Sivils

Hey there everyone, happy Monday!!  I hope you have all had a good weekend.  Today I want to share a couple of projects I created with Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker Messages line & a mixture of lines.

Up first is a fun little altered fram to hang in my scraproom using the Messages line.  They saying in the center is simply perfect....You can't have everything where would you put it!

On this project I used a fun little wooden frame from Hobby Lobby, Nikki Sivils Messages line & Brown burlap buttons, The Twinery (Cappuccino), Sizzix mini tattered floral die, Ranger Dylusions stamp set The Right Words, Xyron adhesive.

Up next is a card I created using a mixture of lines.  For those of you who know me know that this was a tough one for me as I usually don't mix lines.

For this card I used Nikki Sivils lines Messages, Exit Here, Noah & Audrey, Xyron adhesive, Basically Bare Lovely Locket Set, and I created this from a layout sketch from Sketch Support.

Thanks fo stopping by today, hope you all have a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of your fabulous mothers visiting my blog today!!  I hope you have a day filled with rest, relaxation, and spending time with your family!

Up today is a card that I created using some totally fabulous Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker paper (the Audrey line), along with some fun Basically Bare goodies they gave all of the Divas to play with.

I love the fun little dress form from Basically Bare which went simply perfect with the dress cut from Nikki's Audrey line.  I added a little bling from Want 2 Scrap, and some yummy Cappucino twine from The Twinery. I of course put it all together with my Xyron adhesive, now to sign it and give it to my mom.

Playing Along With Sketch Support

Today the Divas over at Nikki Sivils are playing along with Sketch Support.  I simply loved the card sketch that Allison created for this challenge....not to mention the super cool layout sketch book she sent us :):). 

Now for my take on the sketch...I used Nikki's Noah line.

I love this line and thought that the stars would be super cute for this one.  I also used some of the fabulous burlap buttons on the card as well.

Thanks again Allison from Sketch Support for letting us play along!  Make sure you stop over and check out what all of the Divas created on the Nikki Sivils blog.
