Oh, My Minds Eye.....

So, I am completely in {LOVE} with the Miss Caroline collection by My Minds Eye! A few weeks ago I went to my LSS and picked up some of these gorgeous papers, buttons, brads, and embellishments! I am not usually one for only putting 1 picture on an entire 12 x 12 page, but this memory was worth it! I just love the colors, papers, and how it turned out!
 I cut strips of the papers at different widths and lengths in order to show off the beautiful colors and designs. For the pink paper I used one of my Kiwi Lane Designs scallop border templates. I also used some fun little doilies to mimic the background paper. The little flower below was made using two small punches and adding a little brad from this collection.
 I wanted to add twine to this layout, but wanted something with a solid color so I used some crochet thread added a button and some cute pins from this collection.
 For the title I cut a circle, typed up the words "Starbucks" (using appleberry font) and "with Aunt Christie & Stayzia (using American typewriter font), and ran it through my printer. Then, I used a notebook punch for the top, a strip of pink pattern paper and some Making Memory stickers for the word "First." I also added some doodling and some more brads.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hoping to get another layout done using these fabulous papers! ♥Kristy

At the Park lo...

Here's a quick layout I did of Little Stinkerbella, and one of my best friend's kiddos playing at the park. We even ran into another friend and his daughter while we were there! I used some of my favorite Echo Park papers and Kiwi Lane Design templates to put this layout together.

Thanks for stopping by today! ♥Kristy

Card Club update...

Today's my day to be the guest designer over at She's a Sassy Lady. If you have a moment please hop on over and leave me a comment. Here's my post:

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts!

This month has been super crazy! So today I simply have some fun pictures to show you, that I hope will bring you all a little inspiration! I was so excited when Sheila introduced her card party. HERE is the link for Sheila's party.  Here are some pictures of our cards from the last couple of months. The first group of cards are birthday and the next group are thank yous! Everyone made a card that went along with our theme and then brought the supplies for 5 of us to make the same card. Here are the cards:

Each month we look forward to getting together, enjoying some yummy food, and having time to chat and create with each other! This month's theme is "sympathy or thinking of you!" I hope these pictures will inspire you in either your card making, party planning, or just crafting! Thanks for stopping by today! ♥Kristy
