Hi everyone! You know on the 1st of the month I always have several posts – this is the second one and there will be one more after this one! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #100 – Kidz Rule! We’re being sponsored this month by Star Stampz, Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Pickled Potpourri! Come play with us for a chance to win an awesome prize!

I created a cute summer vacation card using the most adorable Knobby Knees Vacation Boy digi from Bugaboo. OMG, I just love him! Man/boy/masculine cards have always been challenging for me so I kept this fairly simple with a couple patterned papers, some torn Core’dinations paper and just a few embellishments.


Isn’t this knobby knees kid just the custest ever?! I colored him and cut him with a double-stitched die – you know how I love my stitched dies! I tore one edge of a piece of brown Core’dinations to reveal the kraft core for a little interest under the focal image. I spelled ‘vacay’ using the Newsprint Thickers down the left side and colored them with a green Spectrum Noir marker. To finish the front, I added several drops of Woodland Green Crystal Drops and a few Candi Minis.


I decorated the inside with leftover strips of the papers used on the front. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of white cardstock, punched it out with a circle punch and then punched a slightly larger circle of the Kraft cardstock used for the base. This turned out really cute! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
