A girl needs some bling...

Valentines Day is quickly approaching and  Valentines Day colors of pinks and gold were on my mind when I created this Scruffy Little Cat girl card. 

Supplies Used:
Scruffy Little Cat- Louise
Spectrum Noir markers: GB8, GB10, IB1, DR2, EB1, EB2, PP1, BP6, FS4

I blinged it out with glitter and Smooch. The button was created by embossing it with gold EP and then pressing a stamp into the hot embossing powder.

Jump start on Christmas Cards...

Christmas decorations are now put away, but that doesn't mean its too early to start on next years Christmas cards! Today's card features one of the newer Crafters Companion Party Paws called A Christmas Gift

Spectrum Noir Markers (DR1, DR5, BP2, IG1, IG2, IG3, IG5, IG8, PP1)

I embellished the card with a bit of Dollar Tree Washi tape. To coordinate it, I sliced a thin strip off the tape and used it as the ribbon on the present.

Clear Scraps NEW Build It Your Way 12 x 12 Binder

Have you seen the new 12 x 12 Clear Scrap Build It Your Way Binders yet?! As a 12 x 12 scrapbooker, I am LOVING these!!! 

I kept the design simple to show off the see through effect of the acrylic. Diecut a LOT of circles from pattern paper in an assortment of sizes and simply adhere them to the front of the binder with Zip Dry.  This is a great project for using up all those scraps of pattern paper we hoard.  I did not decorate the spine of the album but you definitely could. 

This would be a great project to do with your kids! 

Lots of new product from Clear Scraps! Be sure to head on over to the store and check it out....NEW Product Section
