Anyway, at first I was pretty skeptical about why this paper was such a "must have". Well, it didn't take long for me to realize why I MUST HAVE this paper and that it did not come in near enough colors. If you like to do a lot of layering using your Cricut (and don't have a bunch of mats to keep single sheets of paper on), then this paper is for YOU! Each paper features 9 coordinating squares colored paper (some pattern, some solid). Using this paper, you'll eliminate the need to constantly change your paper on your mat and also the massive overload of scraps that are always leftover! If memory serves me correctly, I think there are around 5 different styles you can choose from. Hope on over to Easy As Cat Soup to see the entire line!

Want the details? Well, it's pretty simple! The cardstock is by American Crafts and Coredination. The designer paper is by Graphic 45. It's actually a Christmas paper line but this design can easily be used for non-christmasy projects. I used a flower embossing folder by Sizzix on the designer paper. The twine is by Jillibean Soup and the little leaf punch is by EK Success. I paper pieced the red sash on the little girl. The little pearls are by Queen & Co and finished off this card perfectly!
That's it! Not too hard of a project and didn't take me forever to do. I don't typically cut stamps out so this was definitely a challenge for me. Hope you've enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my take on her sketch this month. It's pretty simple to put together. My designer paper is by GCD Studios. The flowers were cut out of paper included in the same line. The paper is absolutely gorgeous and features a very subtle design of sheet music. I used my fiskars border punch for the scalloped edges around my photos. The title was made using my cricut but I can't remember which cartridge. The cute pup is our youngest one, Sadie. She is only a couple of months old in theses photos. She's almost 8 months now and is quite the handful!
Well, I hope you've enjoyed this post today. This layout is also being featured at one of our local scrapbook stores, Easy As Cat Soup. They have everything you'll need to duplicate this layout if you'd like. Happy crafting!

As one of my first projects for Whimsy, I worked with the Garden Vistas Autumn Silhouettes acrylic stamps by Kanban to create this card. This stamp set offers a wide variety of images and also comes with 3 coordinating sentiments that are perfect for making quick cards.
The details of this card are pretty simple. Since I'm not teaching this as a class, I can share everything with you. The base of the card and the matt of the stamped image was made using Bitter Chocolate from Bazzill. The designer paper is from a collection by Melissa Francis (Brady). Once I cut the designer paper, I embossed it using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (name unknown). I cut a smaller piece of that same paper to make the small rosette. For the stamped image, I used plain white cardstock and stamped one of the tree stamps in this set with Tim Holtz's Walnut Stain ink. I sponged the edges of the image with this same ink to give it a little umph. I found the little pieces of light pink grosgain ribbon in my stash. For the rosette, I cut a 6 inch piece of paper and scored it at approximately every quarter inch. If you're going to make your own rosette, I suggest using a longer strip of paper as this was quite a challenge to get to lay flat. I finished it off with a little button for the center.
I hope you've enjoyed my little card. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy crafting :).
