Getting well soon with Laurel!!

Hi everyone! Today we are sharing some fabulous cards from Laurel!

Hi everyone, Laurel here.  I have some fun cards for you using the Get Well soon and My L'il Monster collections.  These were so fun to work with.
First up are the Get Well soon cards.  I thought this first one would not only make a great get well soon card, but also for that time when you need to send an apology as you may have said or done something to hurt someone.  

On this next card I used some TAWS stamps to create a cute little get well soon card.  I used some Twinery Twine to create the little pom poms on the 'bugs' antennae.  I am sure that this cute little guy is bound to make anyone feel better.

Next up are my My L'il Monster creations.  I am always in need of cute little kid cards as I make them for the grade one students in my classroom.  I am sure any little boy would love to get a monster card.
Finally, a Miss You card.  I used some Paper Smooches stamps as I thought they suited this sad little guy.  I have mounted the monster and thinking bubble on foam squares for a bit of dimension.
I just love Laurel's cards!! Thanks for stopping by!

Katrina here with some Get Well Soon and My 'Lil Monster

 Katrina here with some projects for you.  An altered project and a layout or two or three.

I have to say that My 'Lil Monster is one of my very favorite Nikki collections out of all of them.  I love the color palette, the patterns, just everything in the collection.  Plus the fact that the monsters are adorable.  

First up a two page layout using an Allison Davis sketch to go by.  I just love that striped paper!

And another two page layout.  I really couldn't decide exactly how I wanted the journaling, so until I decide, I left that area blank.

Close up of the title work.  I had a lot of fun with this title!

This is a possible reappearance on the blog for this layout, but I love how it showcases that you can change the theme to fit your pictures.  Nikki did create a monster when she introduced me to scrapping!

Below is an altered chipboard house using the collection.  Inside are cards to match made out of the pattern paper, stickers, etc.  Great for the kids to play with!  



Then the Get Well Soon collection if one of the more fun collections for me, I think!  I had a lot of fun with those little germs and baterica cutting them out and using them as embellishments on a wooden tissue box that I altered. 

And the collection doesn't have to be used just for humans!  I had fun snapping these pictures in the exam room while we were waiting for Dr. B to come in and see us.  Well, it kept me entertained anyway!

That's all from me today!  Thanks for stopping by.  If you want to stop by my blog, feel free to!

Marielle + Get Well Soon and My Lil Monster = FUN!

We are loving the projects with the older lines that the Divas have been doing.  Marielle is here today with some fun cards and layouts using the My 'Lil Monster and Get Well Soon collections.

Meeting Mike

My Lil' Monster collection....what a perfect collection for this photo of my boys meeting Mike from Monsters Inc. at Disney !!! I wanted to make the"Moon Monster" paper a little less busy by covering all of the images of the small yellow monsters by covering them with 1" circle of the red and white grid paper with pop dots. I wanted Mike and the hand trimmed green monster to be the focus of my layout. Mike is my very favorite Disney character :)

Love the raised circles on this card!

@Home sick 2-Day with the Chicken Pox
I have to admit that when I received this collection I wondered what I would create with it.....then this little cutie got the chicken pox !!! and voila ....I had an idea for this layout !!! Thanks Gabriel :) LOL!!! Love those cute little germs !

This card would make me (Katrina) better!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to visit Marielle's blog also.

Sarah is taking over the My Lil Monster collection!

Layouts and cards seem to be the theme this week!  And Sarah is here with some of each for you using My Lil Monster.

My Lil Monster is one of my favorite lines so I couldn't resist using the monster theme in both of my layouts! As you can see it works for silly happy monsters and crabby cranky monsters alike! Yep both of these layouts are of my daughter Fran. One one on a good day and one on a not so good day.

On My Crabby Cranky Little Monster I used lots of different alphas from different cardstock alpha sheets and a punchout to make my title. I love mixing alpha fonts on my titles! It was a hot day at the cherry festival and I think my girl had enough pictures for one day!

I used some more alphas on the the You are so Silly layout for my title. I also added some of the alphas to the banner to spell out my daughter's name. Some ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel completed the layout.

I love all things whimsical and these little monsters are cute! I would love getting a card like this in the mail! I used the little 6x6 sheets of paper to make my cards and some of the punchouts. I also threw in some burlap buttons!

I am in love with these cards!  And the ballerina monster is my favorite!  Be sure to visit Sarah's blog also!

I {heart} My Lil' Monsters!

Hi everyone!

Julie with you here today and I have two layouts to share with you using My Lil' Monster and Get Well Soon!

My first layout is a funny one!! When my son was younger (he is 15 now!) he decided to wear hi underwear outside his jeans and also put some on a Spongebob Squarepants doll he had!! I knew these would make great blackmailing photos someday! lol!!

My last layout today is using the Get Well Soon collection! For those that follow my personal blog - my daughter was born with a skin condition called Port Wine Stains and she has laser surgeries to remove the "stains"

Thanks so much for stopping by!
