Lovely Ombre Backgrounds

Super Easy Ombre Technique!

It's Ombre day over at Practical Scrappers and I created this layout to showcase the technique I used for the background.
The background is made up of 3 layered pieces of white metallic card stock.  I rubbed an ink pad on the card stock to create the ombre look. More ink at the top, and less at the bottom created the desired look. 

After I created the background I added some fun dimensional touches.  

And a title on this wooden banner!  

p.s. Simple technique=Simple yet beautiful layout!

Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop!!

We are having another super fun 

You should have arrived here from the great project shared by Heather Sweet. If not, go back and check it out, or go back to the very beginning of our hop at Practical Scrappers

Today I have quite a few SUPER simple cards to share with you that used only my stash! You see, we have had a cold winter for us North Carolinian's and the first beautiful day we had, I took my scrap paper bin and a couple of essentials outside and I spent a couple of hours putting together some pretty cute cards!

Here was my little work area and the only things I had to work with. 
 Here are all of the the cards I created! 
And a close up of each one:

Not too shabby right!?!  Its was a lot of fun to limit my supplies and be able to create these fun, cute and simple cards!  Nothing fancy but still super cute and made with some of my favorite papers from the past!!

After you follow me here, hop along to Majken Pullin who has another great project idea for you!

On Cloud 9!

I often scrapbook about my kiddos and not very often about my hubby and I.
 Today I am sharing a layout I created about my Dear Husband and I.  

 This flower was one of my daughter's broken hair clips!
He holds the key to my heart!  

A little bit of paint around the edges and what layout is complete without some sparkle! And I love these colorful burlap sheets!  

Cloud 9 is a Great place to be!  

p.s. scrap abpout something new!
