Happy Easter! Come Play with Me in April

LorisHi Everyone! Happy Easter :) One of my Designer Paper Dolls Lori made an Easter bouquet from my Peeps on a stick and Rolo Flowers. Only Lori had the idea to put the Rolo flowers on a stick too! The Rolo flowers on a stick would be so cute for Mother's Day table too. Thanks for sharing Lori!

For those wanting to play along with me (wink) in April, here are some of the items I will be using! Download April 2013createwithdee

We are making the rounds today to visit family. No one big sit down. Taking lilies with my Easter cards!

Enjoy your time with your family and faith today.

Scrappin' Saturday

Photo (5)Hi Everyone! My friend Susan and I have gone into cahoots to bring you scrapbook shares and ideas. Susan loves to scrapbook, especially of her favorite subject, daughter Jane! I asked Susan if she would be my guest scrapbook designer for a few months and she agreed....Thank you Susan!

Susan started with the 12x12 Divided Page may remember seeing my samples using these papges in a few of my Scrappin' In No Time posts.

Page dividers

The divided pages help create layouts and allow you to simply side in  your photos. Susan and I spied one of my all-time favorite designer paper packs, Sweet Shop, 125408 back from retirement on the Clearance Rack. I nabbed up a few and you will see my Chipboard Album kit (posting tomorrow) using it too!

Photo (4)

I sooo like the divider pages...look how many photos of the day Susan was able to capture on this 2 page layout! Designer Paper packs are awesome for coordinating papers. Such a fun and festive layout that you definitely know a party was going on!

Update! Stampin' UP! has extended the EXTRA 25% in product in the Starter Kit until the end of March (tomorrow). $156.24 in product for $99. Click here for more info.

Designer Paper Dolls' Team Swaps

DSCN3126Hi Everyone! Here's March's Designer Paper Dolls Team swaps. All are wonderful! Here they are up close.

DSCN3130Linda's Everybunny card - woozie! love the layering with the Label's framelits die set. So many details...lovely!













One of my newer teammate Lori's card. How did she know I loved Top Note characters? I will definitely have to try this cutie Lori!















My sweet Davette went all out and made up treat bags! Love them. I need her bag dimensions and will share with all. Davette took orders for these with her customers and friends...who wouldn't want?!







Summer's swap is sooo pretty! Love the framelit cut out layer that peek-a-boos through the designer paper. Summer's new to the team too!










Lisa's card uses a single stamp Ears to You. So cute!!! I love all the soft tones blended together for a definite springtime feel. Lisa is making me want this stamp set even more!!!











Jackie's card uses the Spring Sampler stamp set. She hand dashed with the white gel pen the stitch lines around the Top Note..omgoodness girl. Gotta say it was worth it! cute!! Another newbee to the team :)





And lastly mine. Raining Flowers is a 2-step stamp set used. I mixed bold colors with soft tones to make this contrasting color pallet. AND there is just something about adding the three pearl jewels at the bottom that just made the card.



Our new Dolls joined during Sale-a-bration and received an additional 25% in product in their customized starter kit (for $99 choose $156.25 in stampin' goodies). For those thinking about joining the Dolls, Sale-a-bration ends in just 2 days on March 22nd - midnight Mountain Time. We'd love to welcome you to our group :) Always room for more stampin' friends!
