Sharing my latest projects & a little Heidi Swapp...

Hi there! It's Nathalie hosting today and I hope to brighten your Monday a bit by sharing with you a few new projects I created with Nikki's papers. I have actually been busy playing with 3 different collections this month!

It is almost the end of the school year (no, I can not believe that either!) so I got ready by making these bright and fun tags for my teachers' gifts (you could follow the same designs to make bookmarks). I love the look of the bright colors contrasting with the black:


This was my first time playing with Bella Blue and Oscar Too and I discovered how versatile it really is! I am also a big fan of the Pockets of Stickers where I found the pink scallop border, the heart and the little flower over the i. I hope your LSS carries them!


I created this little ornament by recycling the packaging of a pack of brads. I placed a photo and paper from the 6X6 Mini Pad inside the packaging and then added the scallop stickers all around on the outside. I then embellished with other paper elements from the same collection. It is hard to see on my photo but it has a lot of dimension!

Last but not least, I made this very feminine birthday card using Ellie's Day Out collection, some Ellie's Cutie cut-ups and a breadless tab to embellish:


That's it for now! I have a couple more things in the works but that will have to wait. I hope that I have given you some ideas that make you want to go and scrap something!
Have a great week!
