Whimsy & Stars First Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Whimsy and Stars Blog Hop!   You should have arrived here from the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog.  If not, you might want to start at the beginning so that you don’t miss out on anything.
Here is the complete blog hop list in case you get lost along the way.

Cheryl  (You are here!)

The Design Team has been busy  creating beautiful projects with the NEW Spring Release Sets. Make sure you stop at each blog along the way to check out all of the inspiration, and don't forget to leave a comment at each stop! Two random lucky readers will win this week's New Released Digi Stamp design!   Now if that is not enough, Mabelle released a new Digi today, be sure you check it out!   

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until summer arrives.    Floaty Girl brings to mind warm summer days spent by the pool.   With her cute little pigtails, she reminds me of my daughter when she was younger.
 

2012-05-01 WSS Floaty girl WM

I wanted to add a few freckles but I was running out of time and was afraid that I would make a mistake and “wreck” my image.   What do you think?  Does she need some freckles?


2012-05-01 WSS Floaty girl 2 WM

Today Mabelle is releasing new image in honor of the blog hop.  Meet Amelie!  Isn’t she as cute as a button and already to play on the beach?

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
