Passport To Spring

I am honored to have been asked to be a Guest Designer this month for Taylormadecards4u.  I am using her new April release Passport To Spring kit that you can find HERE 

I started off by printing out the kit and following the directions I saw in one of Monica's video that you can watch HERE This link is to her Valentine kit video but she has others.  I followed her directions for the most part but also had a few ideas of my own.  This is what mine looks like...

In the front I created a tuck to hold a couple tags.  I tore the edges and inked them with Distress Ink and stamped a sentiment on it.  I also added a charm 

Using a lace edge punch I created another tuck for tags or whatever you would like to tuck in.  On the opposite page I created a pocket to hold things like ephemera, or even a photo would be perfect there.  I also added some pearls.  I die cut the vintage lady with an oval stitched die and popped it up with foam tape.

I die cut a tag from one of the ephemera pieces and on the back I stamped this sentiment


This is the card that came with the kit and I stamped "Just Because" on the front... 

...and this friendship definition on the back.  Sorry to say that stamp company is no longer in business or I would give you the link.  I love that stamp set. 

And when I was done with that beautiful passport book I had enough of the kit left over to make these 2 beautiful cards 


To get a better view of these beautiful things I made you can watch my video by clicking HERE.  I will be sharing page by page what I did in creating these.

Please check out Monica's shop on Etsy, Taylormadecards4u, and you will find this kit and many other wonderful things.

4 Cards 4 Techniques 1 Digi Stamp Set From Sparkle N Sprinkle

Some places just sell digital images that is just that...ONE digital line drawn digi to color.  But what about the times you don't have time to color?  Or maybe you would love to see what it looks like colored so you can learn to color it?  Well Sparkle N Sprinkle sells digital image sets that come uncolored for YOU to color, AND include pre-colored.  And not just that but they come with both JPG form for you to just print and use, and in PNG form if you want to use it PhotoShop or to upload to Cricut Design Space to print & cut!
