I just love all the lines so much! I also love how well they work together, so as my farewell to My Little Shoebox, I created a couple of mash up pages.
The first one is a two pager using some Cherry Delight, some Up in the Trees and some Coming home.
I used a sketch from Creating keepsakes. The letters and kites were created with my cricut.
This one has a mix of Secret Garden and Notebook. The background was created with a Crafter's workshop template and some modeling paste. I left it plain, without inking or misting it, so that it creates a subtle texture.
I want to share my gratitude for the chance to be on this team and work with these fabulous products. I am glad that the My Little Shoebox line will be continuing with the adorable bags and home products!
everyone has a digital calendar nowadays I still find it handy to have a “real”
calendar on my desk and so I made this one. Let me share with you how I made
Find a printable
calendar on the internet and print on a A4 sized sheet (I used the “Linen”
sheet (11859)). Make sure you choose a calendar with three rows like this one
Cut in three rows (2”
Take a piece of
cardstock (9.5” x 12”) and score in three places (every three inches), so you
have three rows of 3” x 12” and a row of 0.5” x 12”:
Cut 3 strips of
patterned paper a bit smaller than 3”x12” and adhere to cardstock.
Adhere your 3 calendar
strips on a mat, repeat this step and then adhere to the cardstock with
patterned paper base:
Choose stickers you
want to use for your calendar and make them less sticky (as you’ll be adhering
them with 3D foam adhesive). To lessen the stickiness I always stick them on my
Because the stickers
aren’t adhesive anymore you can now place and replace them on your project to
see where you want them before you adhere them with some 3D foam adhesive.
Don’t make your project too “bulky” as it will always have to stand on one of
Your final step is to place
a strip of tacky tape on the upper strip of cardstock and fold your calendar
closed like this:
Your calendar is now
ready to use on your desk at home or in the office:
I hope you'll give this a try with your MLS stash! It makes a great teacher gift too!
Mmm I so love it when we get to mix all the collections up together! It shows how easy and how all the MLS creations can compliment each other.
I have a few projects to share with you where I have done just that .....
This layout is of me enjoying a warming cup of spiced cider at the German Market over Christmas, it is seriously yummy!!
I love how the muse alphabets looked on the finished layout.
Cherry Delight - Bliss, 3D accents and flowers
Secret Garden - La Petite, Bon Bons, 3D rolled flowers and accents

Next I delved deep down into my bags of 'scraps' and create these cards ........
These cards mix and match most of the new collections that are provided to by local store.

Hello MLS friends. Today I am sharing a couple of projects I created with our Coming Home and Cherry Delight collections.
First Cherry Delight
I love everything about this collection from the colors to the designs in the doily paper. That pattern is my favorite of the collection not to mention the sweet little girls.
Supplies: Patterned Paper Bliss, Charming and Happy Times
Cardstock Stickers: Cherry Delight
Muse Cardstock Alphabet Sticker :Honey Dew
Misc: Papertrey Ink Dies, Recollections paper flowers and Queen and Co. gems
I love creating my own flowers from paper and then layering them with 3D foam squares from Therm-O-Web.
Next I created a card using my favorite sheet of patterned paper from the Coming Home collection.

I made this card for Helen. I am so excited for her new Adventure of taking MLS designs into Lifestyle products. I just know her bags are going to be a hit all over the world. Helen's beautiful designs paired with things we use everyday is a wonderful partnership!
