I am so loving my burst of creative energy lately! It's definitely been a long time since
I have had this much mojo in my Purple Palace!

My Sweetness

A stamping friend of mine hand-crocheted
this awesome purple headband flower for my niece.
When my sister took her for her 3 month pictures,
she took some special ones in just purple
(obviously, I loved them! lol)
So here is the scrapbook page with a few of them.

I used the Jasmine Cricut cartridge for the lettering.
Then I embossed them in clear embossing powder for
some added shininess to this special page.
I also clear embossed my picture mats and flowers.

Here are two more cards for my monthly Christmas card challenge
(6 a month)
no stamp, no ink Santa
I wanted to do a simple, no stamp, no ink card.
I used designer paper for the main focus of the card.
I used SU ridinghood red and wild wasabi cardstock.
I used the striped SU wild wasabi ribbon and hodgepodge hardware
for an added touch.
holly jolly reindeer
I love reindeer!!! Cute ones, fancy ones, I love them all!
This is a designeer paper from my new stash that I had to use.
I used SU chocolate chip, ridinghood red, and whisper white cardstocks.
The holly jolly sentiment is from SU's A Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.
I used SU markers to color the small stamp from SU's Season of Joy stamp set
underneath the sentiment, stamped off for faded images, then punched
it out with SU's wide oval punch.
The wide chocolate chip grosgain ribbon finished off the outside.
This card is a gate fold card, meeting in the middle. The ridinghood
red layer is only adhered to the left side of the card base.
On the right side, I adhered a cut-out reindeer image from the
designer paper, and layered it using SU's 1 3/8" circle and the scallop circle punches.
I added gold dots around this with the zig painty to help it stand out from the card base.
