Ivy Lane Workshop On The Go Layout 2

I've gotten behind on blogging my layouts. This one was from a few months ago but better late than never I say. The Ivy Lane Workshop On The Go makes scrapbooking so quick and easy. Sometimes lifes just to busy to re-invent the wheel every time you want to scrapbook. I love that someone else has taken all the to design great layouts and all I have to do is cut and paste.




I really like the colors in the Ivy Lane papers, I love the color purple but I don't seem to scrapbook with it very much. The pink, purple and green just seem to pop on this page. I can't wait to take spring pictures to add to this layout. Outside pictures in the yard will be perfect with this color palette. The flowers are cut with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge and then stamped. Super easy!!

Happy Scrapping,

Base & Bling Jewelry

Close To My Heart has a new jewelry line and I'm in love. I don't wear alot of jewelry but I do like necklaces. And I don't like to pay a fortune for them. If their inexpensive I can have more variety and thats were CTMH necklaces come into play. And play I did! 

Watch this video for great quick tips.




This is the first necklace I made. It was quick and easy. The flower is a square sticker from the Story Teller Style Sheet and you don't have to do trim anything. You just put it into the square pendant. I covered the inside of the pendant with Liquid Glass and I added the glass cover. I wiped off the edges with a baby wipe and let it sit to dry. Picking out the charms to add to the necklace was easy and for this necklace I wanted simple and elegant. I added the "love" heart charm from the Story Teller charm set and a Rhinestone charm for a bit of bling.



My second necklace is my favorite, and I really do wish I made pretty things all day. I craft when I can but its rarely everyday. This sticker design is from the Craft Queen Style Sheet and would have been better in a square pendant but I really wanted to use the silver chain and I only had a round pendant in the silver so thats what I went with. It works and I love it but it would show more of the design if it were in a square pendant.
I added the camera and scissors from the Craft Queen charm set and a rhinestone from the Rhinestone Charms because every necklace needs a bit of bling!



You can also use 1" pictures in these pendants and I'll be ordering several of those when  I place my next Studio J order. Did you know you can use Studio J to print photos? YES you can! I'm doing a blog post soon to tell you all about it.
