It's Been Way Too Long's hard to believe I know, I'm actually writing a blog post! Shocker for most and especially for me. There are no excuses, just life happens. I'm still creating, but this time it's creating for me and my family, no design teams. It's nice to step back and just create without limitations or a must have project. I've been having so much fun getting back to what I love the most and that's 12x12 layouts! If you have been following me from the beginning you already know, but for those who may be new, I'm still making youtube videos. My youtube channel name is scrapsofmine and you can find the link above in the tab "find me here".
I'm still that busy mom of three. My kids are getting bigger and growing up so fast. Makes my heart sad to think they aren't those precious little babies anymore, even though I still refer to them as my babies. My oldest just registered for high school! (sigh) Seems like the older I get the faster the months go by.

I'm so glad you found your way to my blog. Here are few scrapbook layouts I've recently created, hope you find some inspiration in them. As always, thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping.

Today I'm sharing a simple card I created for Little Blue Button Stamps. I used the new digi image Smiling girl. This new image was so fun to color and would look amazing on some mix media pages or projects! I chose to create a simple card and decided to spice things up and color the image with fun non traditional colors. I love the final results! Be sure to stop on by Little Blue Button Stamps and check out all the new digi images available in the store.

Winter Wishes Card for LBBS

Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to be apart of Little Blue Button Stamps design team! It’s been an honor in the past to be a guest designer on several occasions and I’m thrilled to be sharing more of my projects with you.

Today I’m sharing a 6x6 winter wishes card with you.

I had so much fun coloring the new digi image Flora Button using a combination of my Copic Markers and my new favorite Inktense pencils. I colored Flora Button as if she was a snow princess, in shades of Blues, soft turquoises and grays. I used several winter themed papers from the Jack Frost paper collection by American Crafts for the background of my card. I used a Kiwi Lane template in the shape of a tree to create the dimensional snow frosted tree on the side of my card. I added white glitter to the shape of the tree to make it look as if it had snow on it. I finished my card off by adding a few snowflakes, some satin ribbon and a winter wishes banner.

Thanks for joining me today, I had so much fun creating this winter wishes card using Flora Button, and I look forward to sharing more of my projects with you!

Happy scrapping - Leslie
