Layout using Studio Calico's Scrapbook Kit

Hello Papercrafters!

So if your not familar with Studio Calico I will let you know they are papercraft company who supplies their customers with monthly kits.

I got my first kit and totally waited til the end of the month to make a layout.
I feel bad that I did not open this box sooner
Take a peek.....

The above picture has a filter and the below picture does not infact it was 3am when I finished this page!

I used a a picture that my son posted on his instagram. He works in the City and is such a hard worker.
I wanted to capture his daily life with this page and how proud I am of him.

His tag line is "You can catch me in the Bay! Workin hard everyday!" just love him and the 
hardworking person he has become.  

I used Mr. Hueys to color the letters "The Bay"

I used a project life overlay that I got from my class with Shanna Noel to go over my picture.

Above is the materials I had to work with and I used them all!

Last but not least here are some wine glasses I made last night. I blame them for getting me into this
crazy craft world!
Without that lil Cricut I would have not met so many wonderful new crafty friends!

Card Swap! Heidi Swapp!!

My goodness its been over a moth since I last blogged!
I have been so busy with my daughter's senior ball, we have a new baby in our family, cheer tryouts, National Scrapbook at Michael's and my nephew's wedding!
So many awsome things to celebrate- I truly feel so bleesed!

Enough of that lets get crafty!

So I hosted my first card exchange with some awsome ladies on Instagram.
A card swap is where you make a homemade card and you also recieve handmade cards. Its really fun and the theme was "Happy Birthday"

I decided card swap....well ofcourse I had to use some of my Heidi Swapp materials.

I really loved the way it came out!

I used a paperclip w/ adhesive to get everything layered.

The stamp "happy birthday" comes from my Stamps of life - lady bug collection.

The "girl" stamp is from the fabulous girls from Glitz Designs.

If you notice to the left that was my attempt at using colorshine and Heidi Swapp stencils.

Oh and the best news....

I am finally a lucky Studio Calico Girl!

My honey was I think as happy as I was!
He says are you in a competition with our neighbors as to who gets more packages?

Last but not least my wonderful finds at Michael's
Oh how I just love that store!

These date and phrase stamps are $4.99 and are a lot of fun! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
