Little Red Wagon #300 - Up, Up and Away!

Welcome to our 300th challenge at Little Red Wagon!  Brenda is our host this week and she wants to see anything that flies on our card.  Lots of possibilities with this challenge, but I chose an airplane.

I did a print and cut using my Silhouette and a clip-art airplane and then I cut some clouds in the front of my card.  I then added a bit of layering with patterned paper and cardstock and a fun sentiment.

I also dug deep into my wagon and found my Liquid Pearls to add some detailing around the clouds.

I REALLY hope you decide to join in on the challenge this week!  Just fly on over to Little Red Wagon and link up your design.  Be sure to stop by the Girlfriends blogs for some great inspiration.  Have a blessed week ~

Little Red Wagon #299 - Thickers/Stickers

Welcome to another fun challenge at Little Red Wagon! This week Jan wants us to use Thickers or stickers on our project.

I created this card using some alpha Thickers stickers that have been in my wagon for a very loooooooonnnnnnnnggggggg time!  I paired them up with some pretty patterned paper, flowers and ribbon.

Now it is your turn!  I am sure you have some Thickers and/or stickers in your stash that are just waiting to be used!  Pop over to Little Red Wagon, check out what the other Girlfriends have created and then link up your own design!  We would love to see what you create :)

Little Red Wagon #298 - Beach Theme

It is my turn to host this week's challenge at Little Red Wagon and since we are in the middle of summer, I decided to go with a beach theme!

How cute is this?  I used a couple of cut files from Miss Kate Cuttables to create this beach house scene.  

I am sure we all agree that life is better at the beach and I hope you decide to join in the fun.  Grab a beach chair, pull up your wagon and create a beach-themed card.  Then link it up at Little Red Wagon.  See you there :)

Little Red Wagon #297 - Birthday

Heather is hosting the Little Red Wagon challenge this week and she chose Birthday as her theme.  That is because she is celebrating a birthday this week - so HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATHER!

Here is the card I designed using a digital image from A Day for Daisies.

I went simple, sweet and elegant for my card this week.  I paper-pieced the chair and used my Copic markers for the birds and chair legs.

I thought the sentiment "It's Your Day!" was perfect, because on your birthday you should just be able to sit somewhere pretty and relax and be treated with special love.  All of my birthday's are like that!  Aren't yours?  lol

I would love for you to join us at Little Red Wagon and link up your own Birthday card!  And while you are there, be sure to wish Heather a Happy Birthday.  She deserves it!!

So Many Reasons To Be Happy

I wanted to share another layout that I did while I was away for a weekend crop recently.  I was inspired by a sketch I found on Pinterest and I 'borrowed' a photo from my son's Facebook page :)  This photo of S & H was taken in Toronto as they were enjoying a special evening that included a dinner cruise! I just couldn't resist putting it on a scrapbook page.

The background is white cardstock that I spritzed with Prima's Color Bloom Spray Mist in a soft teal.  Then I worked with a monochromatic color scheme as I wanted the photo to be the focus of my design.

I found a couple of quotes/sentiments from a sticker sheet in my stash that were perfect for my layout.  I used them to create a frame along the left side.

Then I used arrows on the right side of the page to balance out the frame.

A couple more stickers, a doily, some sequins and a bit of stitching added the finished touches!

I was so happy with the finished result, that I actually ended up framing this layout as a gift for my son.  It will be perfect in his new apartment.  Thanks for looking ~

Little Red Wagon #296 - Red & White

It is Little Red Wagon time again!  To start off we would like to welcome three new members to our team; Brenda, Donna and Mandy!  The have great creative talent and we are thrilled to add them to our roster.  We are sad to say good-bye to Tracy, Collette and Susie.  It was wonderful having them on our team and they will each be missed.    

Now for this week's challenge.  Carolyn is up as hostess this week and in honor of Canada Day she wants to see Red and White on our project.  Easy enough!

I thought this sweet digi, from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, was perfect for this challenge. I colored it up using my Copic markers and kept the mouse grey (a neutral color) and pink (a shade of red) and, of course, a red and white baseball was perfect!

Then I dug through my wagon of goodies and found some papers that would work.  I created the sentiment on my computer using Varsity font.  I think this card would be perfect for either of my great-nephews, Nolan or Jack :)

I hope you decide to play along with our Red and White challenge this week. Be sure to visit all the Girlfriends on our DT for more great inspiration and then link up your own creation.  Have a great week!
