Clean & Simple

Today's post is another birthday card using last weeks sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, it uses the same layout as the last card I posted except with different stamps and a green color scheme. I found some cute Stampendous frog stamps over this last weekend when I popped into the Scrapbook Zone and couldn't resist. The sentiment was altered because the stamp actually reads "Hoppin' over to say Hello", but I left out the Hello so that I could stamp happy birthday inside the card.

Supplies: Fergie Leap, Hoppin' Hello - Stampendous, Copics, Nestabilities, Doodlebug designer paper, Ribbon, Brads, Crystal Effects (for the eyes), Pop dots. Colors: Garden Green, Green Galore, Whisper White.

Next is a scrapbook page layout that I did for my son's first haircut, my sister-in-law Ann cut his hair on our back patio so stickers of barber polls and booster seats didn't work for this page. My style of scrapbooking is clean and simple which I hope keeps the focus on the pictures.

Connor was not a happy camper about getting his hair cut as you can see.




















Supplies: Circle Scissors, Circut cartridges - All Mixed Up, Opposites Attract, Cinderella Disney (for scissors). Circle punch, Buttons, Silver metallic paper, Bazzil card stock.

Love your card. Your layouts rock - they are always so fresh and clean. Connor is a little darling. So cute - just like his Mom. Hope things are fine with you. Here it's been a very hectic time with the new release of Anki's Sweethearts - release date June 12th - but also a lot of fun of course. Kramisar - Anki
