Cocoa Daisy~ July "Bistro" Projects

Well hello there it's Friday baby!! Have you seen the July Cocoa Daisy "Bistro" Kits?! I am so blessed to be a new addition to their DT, and the kits I got to start out with just made it that much more awesome! Here let me show you what I made for this month!

This is the layout I did using the DITL kit! Ummm this kit was amazing. That pink & blue & teal together? Plus the cutest coffee cup ever? I die. 

This is the layout I contributed for this month's sketch challenge! I love creating with sketches, it makes the process so fun!

This is the mini album I created by simply adding a hole in the tops of mini pages, then adding a darling little gold ring to hold all of the pages together. These types of albums are so fun and easy to make, and awesome to flip through!  

There's more shots of the inside pages in the CD gallery

Just a couple fun cards ;) Love layering goodies! 

Seriously. The flamingo paper? The cahutest. 

It's amazing how many goodies I have left in my kits! I will definitely be making more projects with them! ;)

Thank you so much for stoppin in, have a glorious Friday!

Main Street Market

Hello there loves! On Saturday my dear friend Cheryl went for a little road trip up to Rockford to the Main Street Market! Ummm this was an AMAZING flea market, I can't even believe it. It was the most inspiring place! I left with my head spinning! It is put on by Urban Farmgirl, an awesome store in Rockford! I just wanted to share a few pics I captured, just keep in mind that most of them were while I was doing a "drive-by" so I didn't get trampled lol!

This is Cheryl isn't she the cutest?!

There was so much inspiration here I was going nuts! I'll only post a few pics at a time though so I don't flood ya lol!

I am so in love with old painted bikes!

Little treasures everywhere...

Hello eye candy...

Sorry if you hate feet lol! Had to;

Seriously. A mint green bike. I can't even handle it. We all need one of these babies in our lives. 

These pics don't even begin to cover it, I was snappin alll day loonngggg!!! So much inspiration in one place I can't even believe it! Can't wait to go again!

After the first round at the market, we hit this place for lunch! It is the coolest old place right on the water, and the food was to die. So if you're ever in Rockford, go here for lunch! 

What is your favorite girls day outing? Are there any flea markets that I must go no matter what the cost?! Do tell do tell ;)

Waffles Are Just Plain Wonderful

Well hello Happy Memorial Day! So thankful for all of the men & women that we are honoring today to make our freedom possible. We're pretty spoiled here if you think about just how good we have it in this country! It wouldn't be possible without all the brave souls that have fought and died on the battlefields. It's so important that we never take our precious freedom for granted. I thank God everyday for how immensely He has blessed the U.S.! God Bless America!!
Just wanted to share a fun layout with you today, I got to play with some of the new Dear Lizzy "Fine & Dandy" line and came up with a little something for this picture I've had staring back at me from my desk... one morning we went out to breakfast and my mom got this big luscious waffle covered in strawberries and whipped cream ohhmygoodnesss... sooo delish! Just plain wonderful..
Just some fun layering, gold foil, and of course my favorite colors , pink & mint ;)
There are some adorable banner sticker flags that you bend around gold pipe cleaners in this line, such a cute idea! Very fun and festive! The banner on the far left however is actually a 3x4 Project Life card of this collection that I cut into that shape and the second one from the left is one of the cut aparts from the 12x12 papers ;) I can be so tricky sometimes.. I stapled it right to my page using one of those snazzy far reach staplers. Sure comes in handy!

Have you seen the cute gold foil word stickers in Amy Tan's new Collection?! Love them! Such an easy way to add glam to your projects!

Lovely layering.. the gold foil scalloped square behind the photo is from the new Heidi Swapp Mixed Media Card Kit at Michael's heh heh...

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Cards, Flamingos, & Glitter Tape

Hey there paper peeps Happy Saturday! What do cards, flamingos, and glitter tape have in common? Nothing! But! I got some play time in my studio and guess what?! I found that if you use the Heidi Swapp handwriting dies together with the Marquee Love Glitter Tape, something magical happens...
You can peel the die cut word right off the strip of tape and it's sticky on the back! What?!?! Awesomeness! Just lay the word die right over the tape...

Run it through your Big Shot, and peel the word off of the clear tape backing! Then you can literally just slap it right down on your project yessssss!!!

It even worked with this cute new flamingo die from Echo Park!

Here I just water-colored right on the background and laid the new Heidi Swapp floral lace paper right over top of it! Also, I layered some of the new cards from the Heidi Swapp Mixed Media Card Set (at Michael's) behind my photo for a super easy fun background! Umm if you haven't gotten this card kit yet, you have to get one! It is soooo adorable!! The colors and patterns and shapes are to die!

The clear flamingo acetate is from the new Pink Paislee line Citrus Bliss, and it is gorgeous!!

So that's my 2 cents for today lol! Thanks for stoppin by dudes have a wonderful weekend!
