Hi Everyone!

Jinger Adams is having a design team call for a her new line of Scrapbooking/Card Products. I am excited to see what Jinger comes out with and I want to be a part of the excitement! So I am trying out.

If you would like to try out for the the team also you can find all the information HERE. The deadline to enter is March 31st, so you need to hurry! I was busy finishing up some submissions for Cricut Magazine so I could not complete this till now.

The card I am posting today was fun to make. I broke out the glitter again. I had so much fun using glitter for the card I made for the Typecast Creative Challenge that I decided to use some again. My inspiration for this project started with a new package of Inkadinkado Thank You Stamps and a new roll of sparkly ribbon. I had to find a way to use them. I decided The black and white papers from the Black and White Cricut Imagine cartridge by Teresa Collins was a good choice.

The card is an A7 size card. I matted the card with white cardstock that I inked it with a turquoise blue ink pad and glued an edge of iridescent glitter all around. I then matted the card with a piece of black cardstock and attached a shape that comes on your Imagine and filled it with a print from the Black and White cartridge. I then stitched the two pieces of paper . Then I cut a piece of pink paper that was printed on the Imagine with the Black and White cartridge and matted it with a black piece of paper and stitched them together.

The flowers were all made from the Flower Shoppe cartridge and filled with colors from my Imagine. I inked the edges of the flowers with black ink before I rolled them. Then I attached some rhinestone and pearls to the center of the flowers.

The scallop is created with the both Elegant Edges and Lovely Floral Cricut Cartridges.
The Thank You stamp just fitted perfectly in the center. I added some Broken China Ranger stickles to the scallop to make it shine. On the scallop shape on the back I edged with more iridescent glitter. I made a bow from a few pieces of Trendy Twine and Twinery Twine.

My Memories Suite Review and a Giveaway & Discount Code

Hi everyone! I received an email a few months ago about doing a review and a giveaway for the MyMemories Suites 3V Scrapbooking Software and I am really excited with how easy it is to use and how the software functions. I do love to use paper and all that but I can see so many great possibilities for this software. I had so much fun playing with this software and it would be great for traditional scrapbooking. You can use it to do sketches for your scrapbook pages. It would be great to make several of the same scrapbooks for your family as gifts. I could see a new bride making memory books of her special day for her parents, in-laws, and Grandparents. She would only have to make the book once and just print as many copies as she wants.
I decided to make two different pages with the same pictures to show you how different you can make your layouts. Also all the pages and the elements came with the software. There are so many options for embellishments, you can keep yourself very busy. The good thing is you never run out of the embellishments or have to store them. I made these pages in a matter of minutes. It is an easy program to use.

These pages are of the guinea pigs we babysat during Christmas. They were so cute!

They have a great collection of digital scrapbook kits available at great prices and free ones. Also for my readers, My Memories Suite has offered to give you all a discount code for $10 off the MyMemories Suite Digital scrapbooking Software plus a $10 coupon for the MyMemories Suite store.

I decided to make a card for Curt Jensen's Baby Cartridges Challenge. He is a designer for ProvoCraft. Check out his Blog, Typecast Creative. Check out the contest HERE. The only problem is I don't have any of his Baby Cartridges (Word Collage (baby sign and embossing folder) and Stork's Delivery (Sugar & Spice font). Well that actually made me want to try this challenge. lol It's a bigger challenge and I love that. I do have Art Nouveau , Heirloom, and Fathers Day. I decided to go with Art Nouveau and Heirloom. I flipped through my booklets and put on my thinking cap. Below you will see what I came up with. I actually even have an idea of how to use the Fathers Day cartridge but I decided to save that idea for later. I jotted that one down in my sketch book. I wanted to showcase Curts cartridge art like suggested, so I limited all my cuts to his cartridge designs. You really can find the shapes you need in a cartridge if you look hard enough. (This time anyways.) I do have my go to cartridges for tags, labels, squares and such. I decided to make a Girl baby card. I love an excuse to make something Girly. I have three boys so to make something sparkly and pink is a treat for me.

I used tinsel glitter for the green frame.
I think it gives the card a mossy look .

I turned the card here so you can see how it sparkles when you look at it from a different angle.
I used iridescent glitter for the letters (BABY)

I cut out this butterfly from some of the paper found the Heirloom cartridge and placed a few rhinestones in the middle.

This tag was also made with the Art Nouveau Cartridge. I inked the edges with green and then I glittered it. I pop dotted it on there.

These were the cuts for my card:

All the cuts were made from Art Nouveau Cartridge and the printed paper is from the Heirloom cartridge. The card base is the only paper I did not run trough my Imagine.
I filled in the letters, tag, Square layers, frame and flowers with colors and prints found on Heirloom. I just printed a sheet of the butterfly paper out and cut out some butterflies by hand to get the butterflies accents and added some rhinestones. I inked all the leaves and flowers with a light brown ink pad.

- card was cut from a green cardstock I had on hand.
It measures 7.75 x 5.25. Its a A8 size card.
- cut at 4" filled with dark green
-cut Layer 1 at 4" (relative size) filled with light green
-cut Layer 1 shift at 4" (relative size) filled with dark pink
-cut Layer 2 at 4" (relative size) filled with light pink
-cut the letters (BABY) from Font 2 at 1" and fill with dark pink
-cut Font2 Layer for (BABY) at 1" (relative size) filled with dark green
-cut the Font2 Layer shift for (BABY) at 1" (relative size) filled with light green

For the Background:
- cut pg. 64 Font 2 shift at 3" true size and 2.5" rel filled with dark green (this is your frame)
- cut pg. 64 Font 2 Layer at 3.1 true and 2.5" rel filled with light green damask print
-cut pg. 64 Font 2 Layer at 3.5" true filled with the pink stripe paper

The for Label:
cut 1 pg. 66 Font 2 Layer shift at 1" true
(Flip it upside down.)

The Inside:
cut pg. 64 Font 2 Layer at 2.5" true filled with light green damask print

The flower on the inside was from a duplicate cut of the flower you see on the front of the card. Part of it did not turn out the first time I cut it.
I decided to add this good part to the inside of the card. lol

Stamps Used:
I used stamps from The Paper Studios / Stampabilities set called Everyday Expressions.
I also added three little pearls to the bottom right hand corner. It just needed something there.
You should be able to recreate this card with these instructions if you want.

Wish me luck!

UPDATE: My card won!!!
