Welcome to the July 15th Blog Hop!

If you "hopped" over here from Morgan's TweetSCRAPS Blog, I'm sure you saw some amazing artwork and you are on the right track. 

Magical is absolutely it's name..."MAGICAL" .  Such adorable paper which can be used for many different projects...not just Disney related.  The complements are just perfect to pull everything together.


This layout was designed for my June Class and the girls loved it.  Izzy, Tyson and Vincent had such a great time along with Mom & Dad.  Swimming, boating, tubing, fun on the sand bar, grilling, smores....the whole works. They even saw a Momma Turtle lay eggs and bury them in the sand...right on our campsite.  We marked the spot so we are very careful to step around that area.

This next layout is a continuation of our fun family weekend at the lake.   Lot's of white space with a few water color splats are a great combination with this adorable paper.  The Cricut Artbooking cartridge was used to make the "fun & sun" title.

Here's an extra little card made with this amazing paper and a PML card to make it quick and easy. Added white twine & a couple embellishments and there you go.
Supplies Used:
Magical Paper Pack
Magical Complements
Poppy Thick Twine
White Twine
Calypso Sequins
Beautiful You PML
Watercolor Paints
Paintbrush set
Cranberry, Honey and White Daisy Cardstock
Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Many of these items will be going away soon.  Don't miss can order by clicking on the "Shop with Me" tab on the right, or clicking on this LINK .
The next stop on the HOP is Brenda's Rose Blossom Legacies  Blog. You will love Brenda's artwork.  Always a treat to see what she has created.

HURRY - Seasonal Expressions 1 About to End

Did you know that our awesome Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog is due to end on April 30th?   What does this mean??  This means that most items in this catalog will no longer be available after April 30th.  Here are a few of the items that will carry over.

If you haven't already met Charlotte, here she is and she's absolutely beautiful paper! 

This is a layout using Charlotte & Charlotte Complements
This is our newest Granddaughter Charlee.  Her newborn pictures were a perfect match with this lovely paper. 
These are the actual close ups of the paper pack and complements.

 Here is a wedding card using a Fold Design

Used a Zip strip from the top of a B&D Duos paper to create a "Mini" Belly Band.  Each B&D Duos paper has these strips in a variety of coordinating colors and sentiments.  They add so much accent to your layouts and projects.

Included in each paper pack are 2 - 12 x 12 pages of Picture My Life cards that can be cut out and used on your pages or projects.  I took advantage of them with this card. 


Card fully opened

Love card and a lined card to write the sentiment
