Hey Everyone!

We're back with our 2nd round of DT inspirations over at the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM

Here is our challenge, brought to you by our DT Sharada...

Here is my card...

The elements I used were...

2 - Wooden plants - wooden floor
3 - red heart on card - red heart 

I used my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for the month of April!  There are so many layers to this card, because this kit is just full of possibilities.  I can probably make another dozen cards with all of the materials from this kit!

ICRSS04 - April Story Scrappers!

Hi Everyone!

We have a Scrapbook Challenge Series going on at the Indian Craft Room.  

We bring you a new storyboard/layout to follow each month, and ask you to make 1 layout per month.  We are now on month 4!  If you would like to join in, it's not too late!  The series runs through December, so you have plenty of time to create your layouts and catch up with us!

Storyboard by DT Ash

Here is my layout...

I loved Ash's storyboard, as I was able to use it to share details of my baby shower.  The theme of the shower was "April Showers Bring May Flowers," as our baby girl was due in May.  The 3 larger pics are of my family and friends, a diaper cake and framed poster for guests to sign off on, and the invite I made for the baby shower!  The three smaller pics are of one of the centerpieces, our delicious cake, and our favors. I used the circle stitched for all of the circles on the page, and zig markers to color over the "bless" wood word.

I used the clouds die from Paper Smooches for the 3-D effect over the invite.  The "WITH LOVE" is from the napkin rings we placed at each table setting. 

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect shower.  Everything from the first thoughts of the shower to the details in the food menu were perfect.  I have to thank my family and friends!  I had the shower closer to my 8th month, so they were the ones that not only helped to come up with ideas, but brought those ideas to life!

There are lots of details still to be shared, so will have to do another layout or two in order to get all of the pics in.  

I used a particular 12x12 double sided designer paper that I need to find.  It has flowers on one side and raindrops on the other. I unfortunately only bought one sheet, so will be one the hunt to get a another few sheets. 

YAY!  I'm so excited to finally see my pregnancy scrapbook come together.  Thankful to be part of the Indian Craft Room challenge, as it's encouraging me to get these layouts done!

Thanks for stopping by!

ICRCSPR02 - Elemental Inspiration + Twist

Hey Everyone!

We have a new challenge over at the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM!  This one is brought to you by our DT Sharada!  

Here is our challenge...

Cards and layouts are my thing, so this challenge was a bit different yet fun to come up with.  I kept it simple as I'd like to eventually place the tag on a card hehehehe...we'll see!

Here is my card...

I used Tim Holts Distress Inks to create the background.  I used the distress inks on Neenah white paper, cut them up into strips, and then glued them onto black cardstock.  I had a clear acetate sheet with handwriting on it, that I placed over the background.  I used foam to pop it up. The foam is hidden underneath the embellishments on top. 

The black foam circle was cut out using MFT stitched circle die.  The "cherished" sentiment is make of wooden chip, that I painted over with with zig brush markers and wink of stella brush markers.  I used glitter gem stickers to top it off!  

Hope you'll join us for this current challenge over at the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM!
