Playing with Webster's Pages

Hey there everyone, happy Friday to you. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned. I just wanted to share with you a couple layouts I created using Webster's Pages.

I really love the colors in this paper line and love the way the black & white pics go with it. The journaling cards are fabulous also!!!

Have a great day.

Basic Grey Oliver's Versatility...

So I sat down last night to make a few cards and decided to use up some of what I had left in the Basic Grey Oliver kit after having already made four 12" x 12" layouts.  I came up with a few cards, all for different occasions, just to show you how versatile this kit truly is.  For each of the cards I used a white card base that I had on hand.

The first card is for Christmas...I know, scary to think of how close it really is but we must face reality, it's just around the corner.  For this card I kept it fairly simple, using card stock, one patterned paper, ribbon, a Basic Grey stamp set, white stamp ink, my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Clear Star, and a black fine tip pen.  It's hard to tell on-line but each snowflake was stamped in white ink then traced with the Clear Star pen which gives a beautiful sparkle and makes the snowflakes come alive. 

This next card is a love card...perfect for Valentine's Day or just to let that special someone know how much you care.  Here I used some of the doillie paper, a couple of the patterned papers, and a Basic Grey stamp set.  Again a fairly simple card but so pretty.  The sentiment reads "loving you more each day..."

The last card is a birthday card.  I wanted this card to work for a boy's birthday since one of my son's has a party to go to tomorrow.  Again, I used some of the card stock, a couple sheets of patterned paper, a few of the brads from the kit, another Basic Grey stamp set, colored pencils, and a black fine tip pen. 

They are all fairly simple cards but it really shows how much you can do with one of the Queen Scraps kits...they are loaded with product and perfect for celebrating or documenting almost any occasion.

Scrapping with Scraps from the Oliver Kit!

Here is a fun LO I creatd with using some scraps from the BG Oliver kit!
I used Smooch Spritz in Spun Sugar from the Queen Scraps store!
I stamped the leaves and fussy cut them and added them to the LO.
To add some extra bling I stamp some swirls with glue and used Pink Pailsee pixee stix glitter in licorice from the QS store.
I used punches for the flowers and circles and added brads to each!
The kit come with a large variety of brads!!
I added the gorgeous velvet ribbon that also came with the kit!

I added some border strips with some scraps to add some more color, and used some scraps to frame the picture !
I completed the LO with using the beautiful BG pearls that also came with the kit!
To see more of the kit visit the Queen Scraps store its a very beautiful kit!!

A Couple of Cards with the BG Oliver Kit!

This kit made it easy to create both layouts & cards!  These are a couple of cards I created using supplies from the kit! 

For this card, I used another of the stitching templates from Bazzill (which I purchased from the Queen Scraps on-line store!)  I wanted to add some extra dimension & texture to this card, without adding a lot of extra weight, so I could easily send it through the mail! :)

And this is a very simple Christmas Card created with scraps of patterned paper & a generic stamp I had on hand in my stash!

Thanks for looking and Have A Great Day!!
