A Scrapbook Page and a Card...

Today I'm sharing a couple of things I made recently using my new QuicKutz gift set I got on National Scrapbooking Day down at Scrapdoodles. I got Flirt and so far I'm loving it!! Here is the page I made:



Aren't these strawberries cute!



Goodies:
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock; Bo Bunny patterned paper
Letter Stickers: Basic Gray, American Crafts, Making Memories
Diecuts: QuicKutz Flirt set
Accessories: White Signo gel pen, paper piercer, Scallop Edge punch, Fire Rhinestone Brads, Build-a-brad, halfback pearls by Stampin' Up!; ribbon by American Crafts; Crepe paper strips by Amy Butler; Stickles by Ranger

So, I haven't scrapped a page since November! It has been way too long I think... I am feeling a little rusty and this page took a few days until it looked done to me. Hopefully the next one will be a little easier on me!

I added real stitching to the top of this page for a little extra detail and texture. With so much going on near the bottom, it just felt a little bare up there!

I also made a card using my friend Kristen's Relax gift set... I love the shape dies in this one!



Goodies:
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock, Pink Paislee patterned paper
Letter Stickers: Making Memories
Scallop Edge punch: Fiskars
Diecuts: QuicKutz Relax set

I cut out my diecuts first- 3 pairs in flip flops in three coordinating cardstock. I inked around the edges of the bottom pieces for a little dimension and added the stripes next. Then, I added the top pieces, curling them so they looked a little three-dimensional... I made the sand by inking and sponging a piece of cream colored cardstock. I love how it turned out!!

I wanted to thank Lisa at Allissa Designs Blog for featuring my blog this week! What a nice surprise it was to see that! Thank you Lisa!

Well, I hope you all are taking it easy! I am still working on a larger project but I am near finished now and hopefully will be able to play with my stamps again soon! I have a few that are just burning a hole in my desk!!

Have a great day!

Those projects are super cute. I chose the the Enjoy set because my grandma got the Relax set. I do love those chocolate cover strawberries though.
