Sweet Memories

I got the PRETTIEST papers from ATD, Momenta last month and couldn't WAIT to play with them BUT I couldn't find a way to make them work on a LO for me. Luckily, I have a few friends who will oblige me and lend me pics of their adorable daughters to scrap- and this little angel belongs to a good friend of mine. Thanks H!!!!

These 2 projects were made using the Wonderland & Earthtones cardstock paper pads from Momenta. To get the die cut effect, I traced die cut pattern papers that I had in my stash (Bazzill for the scalloped circle & Pink Paislee for the Artisan border piece). I then cut and outlined in black to give them definition. It's a great way to add interest to plain colored cardstock. The chipboard pieces (clouds, hearts and bumble bees) are from  'Baby' line of chipboard icon stickers from Momenta but as you can see, they work quite well on a little girl page.

All supplies from ATD, Momenta EXCEPT Gingham paper (Pink Paislee),
lace ($1 store), kraft envelope (7 Gypsies), white cardstock (Bazzill)

This is a small gift bag made from the scraps I had left over from my LO. To get the shape of the bag, I traced a pasta box on the WRONG side of my paper, scored my lines and then folded around the box and adhered (I used the box to wrap the paer around and then removed it once I had my paper stuck well. I then continued by adding paper layers , chipboard flowers abd alphas. I finished it off with my Crop a Dile and punched 2 holes, threaded ribbon through and tied.

Thanks for stopping by today!
