Pigtails - Prima June BAP

I've been finding it quite satisfying lately to use up some of the products that I've been hoarding.  Today I completed the Prima June BAP challenge using Prima papers that are nearly two years old (yet still incredibly beautiful).  The embellishments here are all Prima as well and are a mix of older and more recent product.  Love the timeless beauty of Prima goodies!

Here's a great tip that I learned from Camilla Ekman that I've been using quite a bit lately:  If you adhere your photo to your layout using foam tape, you can easily slip your embellishments underneath the edges of the photo.  Thanks for this and for so many other great tips, Camilla!
 This was Allison's first time in pigtails :)

Play - Once Upon a Sketch

I had fun creating this layout today for the current Once Upon a Sketch challenge.  I used several punches and a bunch of goodies from my Prima stash.

Love these photos of Allison... she had a blast with the grass in her Easter basket!

Crate Paper June Sketch Challenge

Today I had a chance to participate in the June sketch challenge on the Crate Paper blog.  I used the beautiful Lillian collection and added some Bazzill cardstock, Imaginisce crystals, and twine.

I took this photo of Allison at the park yesterday.  She has this thing about wearing everyone's shoes on her hands!  She can be a real goofball.

Here's the sketch.  I followed it almost exactly.

Watch Me Grow - Mini Album!

When I found out that one of my assignments for My Little Shoebox for this month was to create a mini album, I decided to use this as an opportunity to create a nice keepsake for Allison.

My album went up on the My Little Shoebox blog the other day, so now I can share it here too.  All of the paper, letter stickers, cardstock stickers, and die cuts are from the adorable Sew Cute collection.

See the above 3 flowers?  The blue one and the white one are Primas.  The pink one was handmade.  You can find my tutorial for making those sugared mini roses here.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Little Shoebox Mix it Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the next stop on the My Little Shoebox Mix it Up blog hop.  If you have arrived here from the fabulous Vicki Boutin's blog, you're in the right place!

Here's the blog hop order:
** Kristine Berc **  You are here!

The design team loves your comments! :)

I had a lot of fun "mixing up" products from several of the current My Little Shoebox collections on this layout of Dan and Allison:

Can you believe there are four MLS collections represented on this layout?!  There are papers and/or embellishments on there from City by the Bay, Garden Party, Heartfelt, and Sew Cute!  To me it looks like everything there could be from the same collection... that's because MLS products coordinate so wonderfully with each other.  That's ideal for someone like me who has a strong preference for everything to be matchy-matchy :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a mix of My Little Shoebox goodies to send to someone... :)  If you would like to be included in my drawing, be sure to leave a comment on this post.

Now hop on over to the talented Beckie Dreyer's blog to see how she mixed it up!

I'm super excited to have been asked to create a card sample for Becky Fleck's June 2011 CardMaps and newsletter!    

I used lots of My Little Shoebox goodies (papers, diecuts, stickers, stamp) from the adorable Garden Party collection to create this 5x7 card.

Here's Becky's wonderful sketch:
