mSB - Pair up Project!

During the month of March we paired up for projects over at myStampBox.  I was paired up with the lovely and talented Ally.  For our projects, and since it was on St. Patrick's day, we decided to use that as our theme for the post.  I created a glass using the mini alphas set and the Lots of Dots alphabets.
Close up....

Ally created a gorgeous St. Patrick's day themed watering can, be sure to check out our blog post here to see her beautiful creation!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  May the luck of the irish be with you!!

Once you have visited and commented on each person’s blog you can return to the myStamp BOX blog and leave one final comment to let us know what your favourite stop along your train trip was.

I have created some valentines for my little girls that I teach tap to.  They are very simple but I was able to use 3 of myStampBox sets on them.  For the letters I used the Lots of Dots set, the heart is from the Bits and Pieces set and the lace looking border is from the new Graphic Borders set.

To give the tag some extra sparkle I added some bling to the border and some stickles to the edge of the heart and the edge of one of the blue flowers.  I know blue is not a traditional valentines colour but I thought it was fun to add this colour to help break up the pink.

Thanks for stopping on your journey. Don’t forget to leave a comment below to be eligible for a prize! Now on to the next station…. Your next stop is the very talented Stephanie Ackermann .

Photo Inspiration!

Project Day at My StampBox!

Tuesday is project day over at myStampBox and it was my day to post!  I decided to create a LO for my project using papers from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anothology and My Minds Eye lines.  These papers and embellishments are from the monthly Scrap That Kits, I love these kits!  This was a dance photo of me that was done a year ago.
 I stamped the butterflies using the colourful companions set and the word love using the sigh gush gasp set.  If you would like to see detail shots of the LO be sure to check out my blog post over at myStampBox!  Thanks for stopping by!
