Let's Get Hopping - Blog Hopping with Outta This Funk!

It a beautiful Saturday morning and what a great day for Outta This Funk's first blog hop! Hope you will join in the fun and hop along with us. I know you will find lots of inspiring things along the way.

I altered this notebook as my contribution to the hop today. I love to use these compostion books to hold things I find inspiring from quotes and notes to magazine clippings. They also make great gifts too! I used My Mind's Eye Bloom kit on this and I believe that MME is fast becoming one of my favorite paper companies. I have used every little scrap of that paper kit on several projects lately. I also had to play around with some more of my vintage ladies images that I've collected over the years from public domain sites on the internet.

Leave me a comment and I'll pick one name to win a small alterable notebook kit. Have fun with our hop today.

Nancy's blog is the next stop on your hop at:

You're A+

I'm always looking for things to make cards that I can use at school. Love this little apple stamp from Happy Little Stamps so much. I'm already thinking of other things to do with it.

Vintage Smarty Pants Cards

If you know much about me, then you know how much I love old vintage images. I couldn't resist having some fun with the Smarty Pants word bubbles from the Cutting Cafe...a little mix of modern fun and some vintage imagery.

Sweet Baby!

Lately it seems like so many people I know are having babies! I've needed so many baby shower gifts and cards. I created this card using cutting files from The Cutting Cafe and my Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge.

Monogram Stationery Set (some cards)

Here's a couple of the cards that I made to go with my stationery box.

Monogram Stationery Set (the box)

I so love these little card boxes from The Cutting Cafe. There's even a file in this set to make matching envelopes. I'm thinking ahead to Christmas and making these for gifts. I also used the stamped monogram file to personalize the set.

Delight in the Day

Fun little card that I put together with scraps from my previous card and a ready made embellishment that came with my paper kit.

Much Thanks

I played with this little flower set of stamps from a store at Etsy Aren't they just the cutest stamps? I also couldn't wait to try out some more of my glimmer mists. Those mists are so easy to use. I just layed some shapes on my paper and sprayed away. I think my butterfly image and circle turned out pretty much the way I had envisioned.
