Some Sweet Inspiration and Loolah

Remember how I had said on an earlier post that I had "tons" of product in my MPTH July Kit? Well I do, and as I was playing with my paper again, I started to get hungry for something sweet. Which led me to this.....

I found this website called "Ming Makes Cupcakes" and she has great receipes if you feel like baking

Well after eating my cupcake I went back to my pretty paper and made this...........

I made this out of a paper mache box I had left over from Christmas.

I had left over flowers, so I used one on top along with my prima leaves, and I used my IOD paper as a rim on my gift box. I thought I could give this cute gift box to my girfriend for her birthday with a gift card inside. Cute right? I hope I inspired you to use your July kit.

Here is some more cupcake inspiration I found.

These are made with baby Onesies and bibs -

PFOP Christmas in July Challenge!!

Join the PFOP design team when we highlight our Christmas in July Challenge.

Here is one of the things I made for this challenge - it is called Winter Wonderland and is made with the Tattered Angels gatefold album.  I placed "snow" on the gate of the album and used candy cane and marshallow glimmer mist for the covers.  I also used the tattered angels swirl screen; and then used a silver leaf ink pen to pronounce the feeling of snow and winter. 

Come see what the Pocket Full of Paper Design tream is up to.

Another Reveal for the MPTH July Kit with Loolah

I gotta tell you, I have had so much fun with the JULY kit. I love everything about it and this kit has really brought out the "artist" in me. It felt so good to bring out my paints and brushes and just start painting on canvas. The inspiration of course came from the Loolah line of IOD. I love, love, love the daisies and ladybugs from this line.

The first thing I did was paint my whole canvas in a citron green. Then I took the chipboard template I made for the "designer add-on" which is a sketch of a daisy and painted the surface with white acrylic paint. I "stamped" it on my canvas and then went back and filled in the spaces with white paint in order to bring out the daisy print. After it was dry and I went over the flower with a black zig pen. Then I drew in some leaves and painted those green.

When my canvas was dry I added the other embellies I had in my kit and voila, this little piece of inspiration will be mounted in my scrap room.

What Inspires Me ?


I was playing with my MPTH July Kit and wanted to share what inspired me to make this card. First and foremost it is COLOR. I love the yummy reds from the IOD Loolah Paper and the pretty flowers and adorable lady bugs. SO this is my card ....

I decided to use a sketch from my new Paper Crafts Mag "Go To Sketches".  The sketches and cards in this mag are all so cute.

I chose the sketch from Teri Anderson

I changed up my card to fit my vision of the sketch and my inspiration from the IOD paper I used. I want to emphasize that you can use a sketch as a starting point and not necessarily copy the sketch exactly. Enjoy!

Dolphin Encounter

We just got back from an awesome 4th of July week at Bonita Beach.  I just love the gulf - its like one giant swimming pool. 

We had the best time with awesome friends and we had a very special encounter with nature.

There was of pod of 3 dolphins and this one was after a very large snook fish that was near shore.  See how close I got to the dolphin.  It was such a great experience.
