Pencil case 2

Good Morning all! 
Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend!
The card I have to share today is a little mash up/stash/scrap pile buster!
I love using up my scraps & seeing what I can come up with!

The base card is A6.
I've used the left over little circle image from the La Pashe
Pencil Case, Girl decoupage sheet.
I cut it out & inked with some liquid chalk ink.
The DP is from my stash. I was never that taken with it until
I was making this project. The flower is from the DP too.
I've cut it out & layered it a little. The little sentiment tags
are by LOTV. These were already stamped & embossed with black ep.
The ribbon is one of my little recycled bits & the lace
is from my stash!
I've added a plain paper insert.
Thanks for stopping by!

A New Home

Good Morning all!
I have a little card to share today!
This one is for a girl at work who has just bought her very first home!
Such an exciting time!

I used Tree House in Pink from the Best Of La Pashe 2014 CD Rom
The DPS are from the CD too!
You can also download this design from the website
I cut out the decoupage & layered with foam pads.
The layers are all lightly inked with a liquid chalk inkpad but 
it doesn't show up very well.

I added some sheer ribbon & some gingham ribbon from my stash
I decorated the inside too!
The sentiment was done on my PC in a sweet little font called
Vanessa Loves You which you can find here. It's free for personal use!
I used a little Spellbinders die to cut it out!
Thanks for popping in, it's always great to see you!

A New Baby

Good morning all, it's Thursday already!
I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend!
I'm off out to lunch on Sunday to celebrate a family birthday
but as it's Father's Day, I'm hoping to treat my dad to lunch on Saturday.
If not, we can make it another day!
The card I have to share today is another left-overs card!

The little image was a left over piece from the La Pashe
Decoupage sheet Baby Bath.
My card base is 6"x6" & I've added a design paper which is also from La Pashe.
I made a panel using another La Pashe design paper.
I cut out the image with a spellbinders circle die & matted on  to a scalloped circle
cut from the same CS as the base. I also cut a little frame from the same cs &
popped it up on some foam pads for dimension.
I added some ribbon & lace from my stash before I added the panel to the card 
using some foam tape for even more dimension.
The letters are die cut too.

A little side view which will hopefully show the dimension!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you like my little card!
