Welcome Back to School!

August 25, 2014 New Releases

I don't have any kids in school anymore, just grandkids, but I still cannot believe how quickly the summer has past and it is already back to school time (in most places).  

Today I have three different images to showcase for you from My Whimsical Little World.  They are fun and fun to design with as well. 

The first I have is a simple layout, using Cole to create a quick layout.  I am a simple girl, so my layouts are going to be simple.  I will have to be honest though, This layout started from a make-n-take at a crop over the weekend.  We made the banner and the pencil. I added to it from there. 

Next, I have two cards for you, first I have the alarm clock then I have the mug of school supplies

Be sure to visit this blogs to see other awesome designs created with these same digis and more.

Fancy Pants Call Me

Call Me . . . another one of  the adorable besties (Fancy Pants Call Me)  in the Bestie Collection. I have to also say this one of my favorite cards as well.  I am really pleased with the colors used and the awesome papers I found to match her super cute yellow and orange outfit.   I have not had much opportunity to work with burlap, and when my friend had this great orange burlap I could not pass up using it. Add a nice orange and yellow flower with a pearl center, and you have a completed card. 

I would love it if you would tell me what you think.

Thank You Card

Here is another fun card to share with you today.  This card is a duo effort between a friend and I.  Again, we used the Cameo and the SIL software to cut this card.  This card is a special Thank You card for my friends sister.  She sent my friend a beautiful gift for her birthday. 

I love these cut out cards, and using the cameo to cut them makes it so much faster and easier than using a die.  The hardest part for me is finding the right paper to use. 

We embellished the card with some beautiful paper flowers, a great 3 Girl Jam bow, and a wonderful Angel Stick Pin from Pinque Peacok

My Whimsical Little World Birthday Celebrations

August 4, 2014 New Releases

Here I am back again today with some more great digital images from My Whimsical Little World. 

Astrid, Belle Christopher, and Belle all combined together to make a nice layout for a birthday celebration. 

I am not the greatest at doing layouts, but I a working on it.  I have not really gotten the hang of how to properly embellish a page.  then I ask myself, "is there really a right way or a wrong way when you scrapbook"? Make it look good for your tastes and move forward. 

I have however decided that I need to bling these two pages up a little bit more.  I am thinking maybe some gems on the picture corners? I also think the digital images should be a little larger for a layout.  I am generally a card maker, so I cut them to size for cards.

It takes time and practice to get it right, at any rate, I hope you like it. 

 Angie Ha Marilyn and Martha  also have great designs you should look at as well.

Birthday Wishes

How does one chose between the hundreds of awesome bestiees that are created in the besties studio every day.  they are all so adorable, they make you smile from ear to ear. 

Since it is gardening season, I thought this was a perfect image for a Birthday Card. 

Do you ever have one of those days when nothing goes your way?  And when I say nothing, I mean nothing in relation to the project you are working on at the time. 

While creating this card, I had so many great ideas I wanted to try and use, and one by one by one, they all went by the way side.  Nothing, nada, zippo, seemed to go right for me while creating this card.  

A few little mistakes in coloring can be easily covered up, right?  But it seems like it is the embellishments that always cause problems for me.  I tried multiple different flourishes, I tried swirls, I even dug out the pretty lace doilies and I could not get anything to work my way. 

This is the result of a day full of struggles . . . I hope you like it!

Great Achievements ~ My Whimsical Little World Design Team

July 28, 2014 New Releases

Here are more awesome digital works from My Whimsical Little World Design
First is  Eloise, a cute little lady.  Then next is Max, a handsome looking young man. Both cards are great for encouraging students to the next level.   Both of these images were colored using my Photoshop Program. While i have always used Photoshop to color my images, this time I played with some of the filters to change up the effects.  One Eloise, I used one of the charcoal pencil effects, and with Max I used the gradient effect.  


Please make sure you take the time to stop in check out the other great digital images Paola has for sale in her shop Paola's Papers

Here are other great designs you can view from these images.

Happy Birthday Card

I am always looking for fun new cuts to turn into cards.  This week I found these fun cuts for my cameo.  They are fast and easy and there are so many things you could do with the cut.  

Using simple Kraft Stock paper, I cut out the flower card.  I tried a few different things with it before I was happy with it.  I tried to ink just the inside edges of the flower, (epic fail), I tried to ink just the outside edges of the flower, (epic fail) and in the end, I liked it just plain.  

I layered the cut card over a piece of brown card stock.  I used the offset feature in my cameo software to get the same exact rounded corners as the flower.  I think it would look really cute with a patterned paper underneath as well.  

I tied the whole card together with a fabric covered Pinque Peacock button and a 3 Girl Jam bow to match the button. 

What do you think for a fast and easy card? 

Thanks for stopping by.
