A Few Cards to Share | World Card Making Day

I have a few cards to share here today. All of them were created for World Card Making day. I enjoyed making these and perhaps you will get inspired to create some too! It's never too late ;) Christmas is coming and I know my mother loves getting a package of handmade cards.

Two of these cards were created with sketches for Jillibean Soup --

The next 3 were created using  Simple Stories - Hello Fall Collection

pick up some scraps and create a card or two ;)

Shine and Sparkle | Simple Stories

She's a cutie pie! Getting all dressed up and ready to go on her first plane ride ;) This was taken last summer before our trip to Toronto to see One Direction in concert. She was all dressed up with her little purse all dolled up ;)

This Posh collection has such a variety of pattern and one of my favorites is the one called Live Simply. 
If you take a look at this page it contains 4 colors and all match with the Posh collection obviously.  This paper is so versatile, You can cut strips, cut all 4 blocks, or perhaps like I did just sew each color.  It has so many possibilities as a full piece or a background.

I added my strips, and cluster of chipboard with Bits & Pieces from the collection. I used the gold colored chipboard pieces Shine and also Sparkle to create my title. Simple and Effective!

Every Day | Simple Stories

I created this page for Simple Stories using the new POSH collection. I love the colors in this collection and could not wait to create something. I used a black and white photo to make it easier for me to use all those gorgeous colors in the collection pack.
The photo is of my parents with my nephew. My parents are all smilies but my nephew seems to be on the tired side.  I am sure they walked around a few parks and playgrounds and Nate is pooped and ready for a nap! LOL.

I started this page with a piece of white cardstock and then used a cut file that I created for Creative Scrappers for the background details. I thought having a white background would make all these wonderful colors in this collection POP just a little more.
I cut up strips of paper with a variety in width and all measuring 12". I placed them one on top of each other and did a little bit of sewing.  

 I didn't use that many bits and pieces on this layout because my intention was to use more patterned papers. I didn't want to make the page too busy by having tons of embellishments. I did use some but I didn't over do it. At least I don't think so ;)

I added journal strips again on my layout. Those strips are kind of my easy way to add journaling and I enjoy seeing them on my pages.
