I made these for the scrap your stash challenge, but I just got a new camera and couldn't figure it out in time! BUt I had fun doing it. I used Free Spirit, Scholastic, and Buzz & Bumble. I used the chocolate tapestry rub ons as well. I loved mixing all the houndstooth patterns for my hound. I have been making some really cool cards and hopefully this weekend I will figure out the camera well enough to take some pictures. As usual I love them so much I don't want to send them. But like jam and love, they are enjoyed more when spread.

Dream Pop Birthday Cards with shimmer tape

I love the new dream pop papers! Especially the textured papers, which is hard to see on my pictures. These are only available through MAy 31st, so if you love bright colors and POP, use the shop with me button to the right and pick them up. I bought the shimmer tape for a Christmas card project and overestimated what I needed. I remeber thinking "what am I going to use this for?". The answer is everything! It is beautiful with the For Always papers, the dream pop and the old cruising papers I have. I have used this embellishment more than just about anything. I love a little bling! I am trying to learn how to take better pictures of my cards and these aren't great, but they give you an idea about the dream pop. I also did a fancy fold and cutting with the cricut. They are some of my favorite birthday cards I have ever done.

I love scrap lifting! I saw this card made as a birthday gift on pintrest and just changed the elements and made it a graduation card. It is so fun to see something and imagine it a different way with what you have!
