It's Thursday again and this is our last official post with Virginia... we are so sad but we are so excited about what she brought to August this month. I even tried to find my masking tape for a layout... I am feeling very inspired.
Is this not the cutest layout... WOW we love the use of paper from Imaginary Friends and All A Flutter!!
It's Thursday again and that means that we get to hang out and get a little inspiration from our guest designer Virginia. Today we are showing off a couple SPECTACULAR cards that she created using Imaginary Friends and All a Flutter!!
I want to create like Virginia when I grow up... these are too cute for words!!
Virginia Tillery is knocking it out of the park with this project. Is this not soo cute... it's a "monster be gone" spray. My kids would think this is adorable!! What a great idea. Thanks Virginia for making us think outside the box with your creativity.
Today is Memorial Day in the US and we are all enjoying a day of
reflection on our freedom and the amazing men and women who fight daily
for us. Thanks to all the families out there that sacrifice their time
with their loved ones so that we can live free.
Here is some eye candy for you today on this awesome holiday!!

Today we are taking a look at Heather's Imaginary Friends projects. She did an awesome tutorial that was published onscrapbooking.comon how to make the adorable card shown now who would've thought that on the inside is a place to hold a gift card... CUTE.

Search no further for the perfect way to showcase your love for paper crafting and giving a gift from the heart. This simple tutorial will change the way you give your gift cards. Using the latest and greatest from My Little Shoebox new CHA release you will learn how to make a unique fold card that holds a gift card in a book like fashion. This is a must recreate for any paper crafter. This tutorial has written directions and a video tutorial for every learning style. Enjoy.
You will need:
Cardstock 4.25” X 11”
ScorPal or ruler and bone folder
Tag Punch and Square Punch
Patterned Paper and accessories to embellish
1. You will want to trim your cardstock to 4.25” X 11”
2. Score your cardstock at 3”, 5.5”, and 8”
3. Fold cardstock in accordion style
4. Apply adhesive at arrow on the edge of fold. Try not to get too much adhesive on fold since this is where the gift card slides down to.
5. Use a punch to make slit for the gift card on the center fold. Make 2 punches to either edge.
6. To finish the slit in the center fold use the square punch to finish the straight edge. Clean up with scissors if necessary.
7. Now is time to embellish with your favorite papers.
I love how using the "B" side of the Imaginary Friends line changes the whole look of a layout... the difference between the 1st and 2nd layout are amazing and all you have to do is turn your paper over. GENIUS!!
Welcome home indeed... I think we all think at times we live with a bunch of Monsters... ha ha!!
