One of life's most important treasures. Friends. Someone that is always there for you. A shoulder to cry on. Someone to laugh with, someone to vent to. Some of the strongest bonds in my life have been made through my craft of scrapbooking. There is a bond so strong. We know each other through our pages, and in turn that makes us friends.

So with friends on my mind, I went to my Design Studio. What I came up with is something entirely new for me. There are no pictures involved. LOL I made a template for this cute little gift bag.
Would you like to try your hand at making this? If you would like the template please leave a comment telling me how you and your BFF met and your email and I will email you the link.

Carts used: George, Storybook, Graphically Speaking
12x12 mat needed

Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge

The newest challenge over at Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge Blog is a color challenge. Usually color challenges are pretty easy for me, but this one had me stumped. The colors are BROWN, RED & ORANGE.

I was not sure where to go on this one. All the DT's had posted really cute fall ones, and I decided to head in the same direction and looked through my folder of Dustin Pike Digi Stamps, and came across 2. The pumpkin bear, and the spider balloon.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Design Studio Collage Template **FREEBIE**

Hello friends! Been awhile since I have posted anything with any real substance. Life just gets in the way at times.

Anyway last night I was playing around with Design Studio and worked up this cute little collage template. The whole template is made with the George Cartridge on a 12x12 mat.
I cut the template out on this wonderful metallic black card stock, then I added a background and photos that would really make the template shine. The template is perfect for 2 4x6 photos and 3 2x3 photos in the circles. There are so many ways that this could be used....just use your imagination!
So do you like prizes? Sure you do. I am headed to the Portland Scrap Expo this weekend and will be looking for a fabulous prize. What would I like you to do?

2. Create a layout using this template and post it below using Mr. Linky
3. Follow this blog.

Have Your Way With Paper Scrappy Summer Send off!!!

Come join us this Labor Day weekend for some scrappy fun! Plenty of challenges to keep you busy this long weekend!

Have Your Way With Paper

5 Cards, 2 Sheets of Card Stock

Using just 2 sheets of double-sided card stock, I challenged myself to create 4 cards. I managed to make five. I chose to use these 2 sheets of card stock from My Mind's Eye, Penny Lane-Tiny Dancer-Jazz Collection:

Front and Back

Front and Back

By adding a little embossing, some ink, and a little creativity I made 5 completely different cards.

Birthday Card with Butterflies:
I cut out the Happy Birthday Sentiment from the Stamping Solutions Cartridge. The butterflies were then stamped and applied with pop dots.

Thanks Flower Card:
Flower made from card stock and applied button. Tutorial for flower can be found here. Then "thanks" sentiment was stamped.
All My Love:
I punched the border on the green using a Martha Stewart border punch, then added a ribbon bow, and some bling.
Make a Wish Card:
I embossed the green card stock with the Cuttlebug buttons embossing border folder. Then punched circles and added the stamped images using pop dots.
Baby Carriage Card:
I used the Cuttlebug stitched embossing border folder as well as the Stamp Die and Baby Carriage embossing folder. I also used the Swirls background folder which I went over with blue ink for definition.
