Make it Monday #99

Today I'm sharing two cards that I made for this week's "Make it Monday" challenge. The challenge is "Repeats and Rainbows", using a rainbow color scheme on a white card base to create some really beautiful cards. Click here to see the post from Papertrey Ink.

I chose color scheme #6. 

I used the "Embroidered Blooms Stamp Set".

 Same sentiment from "Embroidered Blooms Stamp Set".
I also used "Happy Hexagons Mini Stamp Set".

I liked using these unique and beautiful rainbow colors schemes. And I love how all the cards have a simple elegance.

"Hello Honey Love" card

With Valentine's Day coming up next month and my sweet little package from Shop Pumpkin Spice full of Valentine's Day goodies, I was so inspired to make this card. First of all, the stamps from Paper Smooches are just too adorable. I needed to play with them right away.

And of course everything looks a little better with a pinch of Stickles.

"Shop Pumpkin Spice" January Blog Hop

Hello hoppers!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013 for the amazing Pumpkin Spice Blog.

Challenge: New Years! Make something that makes you think of New Years! Be creative and have fun!

For this challenge I created a 2013 Pocket Calender.

I am SUPER particular when it comes to calendars. I mean super!! I have bought and thrown out so many over the years cause they didn't work right. Weird huh. So this year I made my own.

I created the calendar layouts on a Word document. Then I printed them on white cardstock. The best thing is I made them fit perfectly on a 6x6 piece of paper. I used some chipboard for the covers to give it some strength. Then I covered that with cardstock as well. I bound it all together using my Cinch.

 I used washi tape and come banner stickers for the front cover. 

 Of course I  have a pen Velcro-ed on the inside. 
Plenty of room to write in each square. 

See my cute little twine bookmark.
Gotta love the paper too!
