saturday special - may 26

"Is it summer yet?" my son asked. My answer: "It feels like summer so let's enjoy it!"

We have been enjoying beautiful sunny days that I wish could go on forever. It does mean there's a little less time for scrapbooking -- but I always find time!

The blogosphere was a little quiet, but I found some really beautiful projects online that I think you'll just love.

1. Julia Stainton from Belle Papier made a beautiful card using layers and what she calls "seamless stamping." Wow!

2. Irene Tan altered a dollhouse stove with Bo Bunny's Country Garden collection. Absolutely amazingly beautiful.

3. Jennifer McGuire used Copics to colour my new favourite -- wood veneer embellies. These embellishments also take Glimmer Mists, Distress Ink, stamping, Smooch and anything you throw at them. Jennifer used her embellies on some great cards. I love this one.

4. Rose from Mokacrafts posted this super cute 3D paper apple she found on Krafting Kreations. I have to make this!!!

5. I was super lucky to take a class with Cari Fennell on National Scrapbook Day. Instead of coming back to Canada, Cari made a few really beautiful tags. ;-) Miss you Cari!! This one is my fave.

6. Emily Pitts from Scrapbook and Cards Today has a good post on understanding different mists. She does focus more on Maya Road Mists -- which I LOVE. 

7. Mandysea from A Teacup of Scrapisms made a mini-album which really grabbed me (and in the right way). Love these colours and the landscape orientation.

8. Heidi Van Laar made some lovely blue flowers using watercolours. The flowers are part of this stunning card.
