hey Buddy

Hi everyone! Top of the morning to you – I hope you have a fantastic week coming up! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m delighted to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #134 – For The Boys! I dug into my stash of digis and came up with this adorable digi set from The Paper Shelter for my boy card. Isn’t this guy just the cutest?!


I printed the pre-colored boy on the background paper and then printed him two more times on cardstock. I fussy cut both cardstock images and adhered them together, then ran a Memento Rich Cocoa marker around the edges of them for a more finished look. I layered them on top of the boy on the background paper which gave him some awesome dimension, and then layered the panel on light blue cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed the Paper Smooches sentiment and cut it with a stitched circle die.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the cardstock used on the front, and cut the Stamp On It sentiment with a double-stitched rectangle die.


One more look… super happy with how this turned out! LOVE the digi sets from The Paper Shelter! And it doesn’t hurt to have some awesome sentiments stashed away to use with them! ;)

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
