Happy World Card Making Day!

Well I am a little late to the party, but better late than never right?  I did manage to complete two cards today in honor of WCMD. For some reason I'm in a Christmas mood. So I did two Christmas cards from Jillibean Soup products:

First a traditional Christmas card in traditional colors:


And then a non-traditional Christmas Card:
The best part is they were created from the same collection pack! Yep-Brand new Jillibean Soup- Holly Berry Borscht. So which one do you like best? hmmm I can't decide.

Card Kitchen Guest Designer & New Jillibean Projects

Here are some of my Jillibean projects from recent months. I have really loved playing with the Cool as a Cucumber collection, it is perfect for my little man layouts but versatile enough everyday cards and layouts too. Oh and by the way I am the guest designer for the month of August over at the Card Kitchen Kit Club- here is one of my favorites from those cards, love that crazy cute nerdy dog! Go to the link above and check out my other seven cards!
One of my guest designer cards for the Card Kitchen, love how the argyle turned out! I want to try some more color combos too.
This month's kit really rocks, you can get one here at the Jillibean Soup online retail store, here is what you get for $24.99:
If you are interested just go here to buy one.

Here are some of my other most recent cards and layouts:

Love this collection sooo much! Cool as a Cucumber Soup and a Hampton Art Vintologie Stamp and Stencil set.

A Lovely Day Wedding Card features new Jillibean Stamp and Stencil set Butterfly Dictionary.
Also two super cute new Halloween collections, one of which translates very well to everyday as shown above. Jillibean Soup Witches Brew.
And now for some layouts....
It's like this collection was made for my boy, love it so much! The halo over the G? Perfect for Gabriel, most days anyway ;)
The other new Jillibean Halloween collection, Owloween- how adorable are those owls! Little dinosaur is awful cute too.
And finally my first Selfie layout, I actually really love it. Made it with the new Witches Brew 6x6 pad and Jillibean Stamp and Stencil set with lots of new Jillibean embellies, including black glitter beanboard alphas!
So there you have it an update of some of my latest, let me know which collection you like best.

Layout Published in Scrapbook Generations

Just wanted to share that the Create online magazine is released for June and I was lucky enough to have a Jillibean layout chosen to be published in their "Readers Gallery". It is a fun layout titled "Silly with Sissy" with photos from a lunch with my family last October. It features the new Birthday Bisque collection and stamping. What I love most about Scrapbook Generations is their sketches, the layout I did was based on one of their sketches- it makes scrapping so quick and easy.

First I will share the sketch:


 Here is a sneak peek of the layout:

Be sure to go to their website here to see complete layout and check out the June issue of the magazine, it is full of inspiration!
