Thank You and Fly Away Cards by DeeDee

I wanted to share a couple of cards I made using some of my favorites from the store!!

First off I needed a thank you card, I started with a kraft base and used some KnCompany paper.. I embellished with a Cosmo Cricket paper pack that is currently sold out, but my favorite part of this card is the giant scripty T that comes from the Art Blanche Script Chipboard Set - There's also a swirl flower and some tulle, a Martha Stewart half pearl and some distress ink.

This next card was for a secret sister card swap - I used a kraft base again.. but picked out a gorgeous green paper from the Crate Paper Lemongrass Kit (whole kit for only $6.99!!!) and some other random patterned paper I had. I used a butterfly from Angel Company, some distressing ink and distressing powder, and a stamp from Chatter Box Botanico Set. I finished off with a little raffia!

For adhering both cards I two of my favorite products are straight from BSD - the EK Success Permanent Adhesive Dispenser and the EK Success 2Way Glue Pen!!

Hope you enjoy! -DeeDee

Work by Dawn - Art Journal and Baby book pages!

Here is some work by Designer: Dawn!! Super fun and cute and and and just look for yourself!!

Art Journal:

Dawn says her son does TONS of drawing and she thought this would be the perfect way to preserve it. She started with the 12x12 Composition book by Art Blanche(3 sizes offered of a great sturdy chipboard start) and then added papers, brads, letters, stamps etc. etc!!

Baby Journal Irish Pages:

This is such a fantastic gift idea.. Dawn's sister had twins, a boy and a girl, and she wanted to send over a couple of cute journals that her sister could just add photos into.. Here are 2 of my favorite pages for the wee ones. She started with the Cardstock of the Month Kit(all Bazzil all the time!!) Added a gorgeous Irish themed paper as an accent, and then she used the Alpha Mishmash Rubons from CratePaper(a gorgeous brown of random alphas) to title her page! Dawn says "very versatile and can be used almost anywhere... don't have to be specific on placement because the differences in size and design are very forgiving and kind of shabby chic feel."

Hope you enjoy these designs as much as I did -DeeDee
