I have two projects to share with you, both use Lori's Echo Park The Story of Christmas collection.
First up, one of Lori's new 3D frame cards...super fun.  A little piece of art, attached to a card and the file comes complete with a little gift box.  This one is the 3D Frame Snowflake Joy card.  I added the garland sticker, enamel dots, present sticker and the brad...all from The Story of Christmas collection.




My second card is one of my very favorite files from Lori.  She has four of these chalkboard easel cards, I love using them as my card base and then just adding fun bits from her collections to embellish.
This is just one of her Chalkboard Easel Cards.
I just cut the basic shape and used all the embellishments from The Story of Christmas collection.


Enjoy the hop!

Simple Stories So Rad

Just finally taking the time to share a layout created with Simple Stories So Rad!  A perfect boy collection, so easy to create with and Simple Stories always has the greatest embellishments.  They think over every little detail that you are going to need, so you can create a great pages in no time at all.  I love that, 
thank you Simple Stories.  And getting this little guy to even sit still for a picture is almost impossible.  A photographer at a fundraising event took these pictures, I tried and tried to get him to take some pictures with her...no way!  But a couple hours later, all by himself, he wandered over and told her he wanted to take the pictures...his only request was that she not show them to Grandma...geesh, lol!  Little does he know, that she sent them to me right away.  So surprise Mr. G, Grandma scrapped your So Rad Super Hero poses!
