Card Making with Pink Paislee's Hey Kid Collection

hiya! Thought I'd share some fun cards I created today using the Pink Paislee Hey Kid collection; highlighting the canvas stickers and ephemera pack.

Mick celebrated his birthday recently, so I created this card for him using a clustering of the canvas stickers. 

And another birthday card for a dear friend who is turning 45 next month.
And this one is for my best friend who's birthday is next week.
I plan to add a gift certificate to this card. ;)
 This one was for a friend of mine who celebrated his birthday last week and who actually does have a mustache! ;) 
And this one is for one of my sons, for when he accomplishes a big or little goal and I want him to know how proud I am of him. I placed the vellum stars from the ephemera pack in front of and behind the vellum journaling card for added depth.
If you haven't noticed, I really adore this line! I love that it has bold graphics and lines with touches of pastels and femininity. It's a rockstar collection in my book!

Have you gotten your scrappy hands on any of this collection yet? If not, Come On Get Crafty can help you out. :) Here is the link to the collection in the COGC shop: Pink Paislee Hey Kid Collection
Happy Wednesday!

A quick and easy little treat bag-I simply stitched a bit on the hexagon tag and pop-dotted the TRick or Trick circle tag as well as cut into two parts the Happy Halloween sentiment tag and adhered to a chalkboard sticker.

Be sure to head on over to Elle's Studio and check out the Design Team Gallery for other ways to use October's kit by fellow design team members here:

Elle's Studio October Kit | I Love Fall Candy

Hi there! Back sharing with you a layout I created with Elle's Studio October Exclusive Kit! Really loved the colors of this kit as it inspired me to get into the fall spirit of things; including the annual traditional purchase of Autumn Mix candy! Anyone else love to pair it with roasted peanuts like I do? (The best! Perfect mix of sweet and salty; like a Salted Nut Roll). Here is a layout i created documenting this traditional mini event.

****Kits are on sale for $9.99 until midnight tonight (PST) and then the price increases to $11.99.

Pink Paislee Hey Kid Collection | 3 Reasons To Smile

Hi All! I am here with you today to share with you some of the newest additions to the COGC shop; thePink Paislee Hey Kid collection.
When I first saw this collection in my recent DT happy mail, I may have been just a little bit giddy! I love the bold pops of color, the graphic lines, and the cutwork on some of the patterned papers!
Here are two items from the Pink Paislee Hey Kid collection that I am showcasing today:
The Red Rover patterned cutwork paper:
As well as the Pink Paislee Hey Kid Canvas Stickers:


And here is the layout I created with these fun products:


I never tire of a circle layout and this one I think is my favorite to date because of the cutouts and the bold graphic patterns and circle clusters! So many possibilities and near instant gratification in completing a layout that packs a big punch with a little amount of time spent. I simply placed some yellow cardstock behind the star cutwork, adhered my pictures behind the circle cutouts, added my titlework with the awesome woodgrain Thickers (now in the COGC) and added clusters of the canvas PP stickers, a sentiment, some mist, some machine stitching, and I was done! 
There is so much more to this collection as well as many new additions to the shop from other manufacturers! Be sure to check them out here and remember $50 in purchased ships free in the US! 

Happy Humpday y'all!
