Awesome Time

  When you are out and about do you notice places and  think "That would make a great picture spot?"
We happened across this little door stoop on our adventures around Niagara Falls, NY this spring. Julie was more than happy to do a little pose and a smile for me.  The "Vintage Market Place" collection by Bazzill has a great combination of colors and patterns and American Craft's "WOW" embossing powders in "Cotton Candy" and "Bubble Gum" coordinate with it perfectly. I used  clear embossing ink and a dot stamp and "WOW" embossing powder to  add some POP to some plain off white Prima flowers I topped them off with one of the Bazzill clear buttons for the center.

Purrfect Paper and cupcakes!!

The Bazzill Marketplace collection lends itself to a variety of layouts themes. For this layout I caught my daughter's kit Kanae sampling a cupcake. Yes she ate most of it..of course she loves frosting it is made with real butter! This is a cat..ooops sorry this is a toddler with a sweet tooth (I am being reminded constantly NOT to use the word cat in front of the "baby"). the calico kitten sticker is actually a "Marie" from the "Aristocats" that my daughter colored to match Kanae. and look at the clear Bazzill buttons--I LOVE those!

How to Tuesday...

I had a little fun with this layout. I got to work with  WOW! Embossing Powders - Suzy West Candy Counter Collection .  Sherrie sent me the "Cotton Candy" (blue) and the "Bubble Gum" (pink).
I used  Sizzix Chandelier die-cut, I used the "WOW" embossing marker to cover first the part I wanted blue in embossing ink-- put the blue on and heat embossed. then added embossing ink to the parts I wanted added the pink poweder then heat embossed and continued on with gold embossing powder and silver Stickles!   For the "Tea Time"  I stamped the tea pot with embossing ink and wrote the title with the embossing marker. I then misted the title plaque with Glimmer Mist. I love the way this new "WOW:" embossing powder is so opaque and really ads POP to the layout.

Bazzill Vintage Marketplace

Lucky me!! For my August design team supplies I got to work with Bazzill Vintage Marketplace 12x12 Paper Pack Collection This is wonderful collection full of terrific patterns and coordinating cardstock. For my first layout using the Marketplace collection I used a photo of my daughter Julie that I took in front of Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Destination Disney!
