Think Spring ATCs

I am also sending my partner this set of ATC's. I was trying to decide what kind of theme I could do and since its been so cold and snowy this month I decided I was going to think about springtime and went with it. Lets see if I can tell you what cart I used for each one LOL.

Going clockwise: Birdhouse is from Stretch Your Imagination and the butterfly is Create a Critter. On the bee ATC I used my boarder scissors (believe it or not). I think the scallops
and circle are from Mini Monograms and the bee is from Walk In My Garden. The kite is Gypsy Wanderings and I will NEVER again make knots that small again with ribbon that thick!! The tricycle and the frog are both from Boys Will Be Boys, The word "Spring "was from Gypsy Wanderings. The owl and branch were both from Create A Critter.
I think I should have made a set for myself. Oh well. If I feel the urge I will reproduce them as wanted/needed.

Journal Tags

I'm participating in a mini swap I'll call it with some of the girls from my GIBBS swap. We decide monthly if we want to participate and then put in requests for things we want sent to us. My partner asked for Journaling tags and I got a bit carried away but hey! You can never have too many right?
In the top photo all the images I cut were from Boys Will Be Boys. I can't remember how big I cut them at. I free hand cut the journal paper on the space ship and the boat. I used my creative memories circle cutter for the baseball hat. I stickled the spaceship and the flag on the sail boat. I used my white jelly pen to free hand "stitch" the baseball hat.
I used a bunch of different carts for the rest of the tags including Storybook, TBBM, Preserves. I cut the majority out at 4 inches. I inked most of them both on the journal paper and the tags themselves. I hope my partner likes what she got. (Stay tuned for my next post to see what else I made her!)

5 Month Layout

I think these pages are just really sweet. I got the paper from Michael's on Clearance over the summer. Its hard to tell in the picture but it has some sparkle to it. I used the scallop part on my corner chomper on the photo mats. I used pink lacy ribbon that I got from HL. Next to the picture with her grandparents I used a metal word that says "Precious". I cut the cute little hedgehogs at 3 inches with all their layers frome create a critter. I believe the font for this one is base camp but am not certain (what else is new). I also stickled the hedgehogs and also the letters.

2 Month Layout

So far this is my favorite! I love the shimmery ribbon on the photo mats and the boarder with the buttons too! As per usual I have no idea which font I used. That is definitely something I am working on improving so you guys know which carts I'm using. Bare with me and I'll get there.
Oh yeah don't mind the messy scrapbook table. It always looks that way lately! LOL

4 Month Layout

This is another 2 page layout for my friend. I used lots of prima flowers and pearl "ribbon" around the circle that has 3 Months on it. The font is Opposites Attract cut at 1.5 inches in upright.
