Lori Whitlock January 2017 Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today is Lori Whitlock's first blog hop of 2017!  If you just stopped by, be sure to start the hop at Lori's site so that you don't miss any of the awesome projects the creative team has to share with you!

For my project, I created two of Lori's adorable Peek a Boo cards.  She made it REALLY easy, by turning the adorable little circle icons into print & cuts.  My printer was on the fritz, however, so instead of using print & cut circles, I used a few stickers from Lori's adorable Echo Park paper collection, "Let's Be Mermaids".

How awesome are these cards!  They fold open so that you can put a sweet sentiment inside or even a gift card!  I will be using this design a ton in the coming year ... super simple  to cut and assemble and any theme can be used depending on the paper.  Love that!!  Here is the design I used .... 

Don't forget all of the other awesome goodies that Lori has:

Ladybug Mini Album

Happy Tuesday everyone!  
I'm just hopping on the blog to share a mini album I created for my new niece. Her mommy and daddy decorated her newborn nursery with a ladybug theme so a ladybug mini album seemed appropriate.   I love the colors ... red, black, and white with a touch of green and yellow ... so fun!

I used a red Simple Stories binder album and random papers from my stash.  I designed the "Our little Lady" title and cut it out with my Silhouette CAMEO.  

I added Recollections daisy stickers throughout the album for a small pop of yellow.

Some of my Doodlebug valentine paper worked perfectly for this album!

And I dug into my Doodlebug petite prints for swiss dot papers and the new gingham print. LOVE these!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Come back tomorrow and join me for the Top Ten of 2016 Blog Hop!  I'll be joining 19 other paper-crafters for this fun hop AND I'll be giving away a page kit from Artsy Albums!!  Stay tuned ....
