A Splish Splash Layout with Queen & Company Summer Fun Collection

Today I created a layout using the Queen & Co. Summer Fun Collection.

This is the second post for today.  For a great Layout using theWe R Memory Keepers Fiesta Collection scroll down or click HERE

My daughter took my grand babies to a park in my neighborhood that has a water fountain? on the ground. Lauren said she was thirsty and waited for the water to come out to drink up some! I just love the pictures my daughter snapped of her.

I was able to use several Cricut cartridges to create this layout using my Gypsy.
H2O - Splish Splash title cut twice
Pack Your Bags - Pool like background
Speaking of School - Water Fountain (hand cut the water)
Sports Mania - Making a Splash title (hide contour - only use the water)
Wall D├ęcor and More - Water border

I used a Tim Holtz white paint dubber to highlight all around the water and added some MS glitter.


Beach Ball

30mm brads

Believe Purple Card

Welcome to HappyNScrappin'
Today I have a tutorial for the card I created for the
 Royal Purple Freedom Blog Hop
Several of you asked me to please show how I created
this card on my blog and over on Facebook.
So I will show you how with items available at the STORE you too can create this card!

Well, here it goes.  I hope I explain it well and don't confuse any.

 Items I used (I will list them at the end of this tutorial).
 Here a closer look at the stamps I purchased to create this card.
1- Cut the 12"x12" piece of purple cardstock at 5" (you are left with a 7"x12" to use for card base and a 5"x12" to use for the top front of the card and the Cricut cuts).
2- Trim 2" off longest side of the 7"x12" so that you end up with a 7"x10" - this is your card.
3- Trim the 5"x12" at 7" (to end up with a 5"x7" [the size of the card]to use as the top front of the card or the piece you will run through your embossing machine.
 This is what the 12"x12" piece of cardstock should look after making all cuts.
 4- Score the 7"x10" at 5" or half of cardstock using the longest side.
 5- Fold (this is your card base).
(ouch, too bright!)
 6- Take the 5"x7" piece of cardstock and place on the 5"x7" embossing folder.
 7- Run through your embossing machine.

 8- Use a pick to take the small tiny pieces that you might end up with (8 of them).
 9- Stamp the Believe (or front) stamp using white ink on the 3 1/2" x 5" piece of vellum.

10- Adhere the stamped piece of vellum under the top front embossed 5"x7" piece.
11- Stitch with sewing machine or my hand? around top front piece
12- Adhere to front of the card base
13-Adhere the butterflies and decorate (add pearl drops with Viva Pearl Pen-Ice White and Iridescent jewels -- You may use tiny pearls if you do not have a Viva Pearl Pen).
14-Stamp inside sentiment with white ink and adhere butterfly
15-Decorate to taste.

1- Cut 3 butterflies at 1.51", 1.27" and 1.12" using Cricut Kate's ABC's
a- Cut butterflies' base using the 2"x7" cardstock
b- Cut butterflies' layer using a piece of vellum

TIP - To give the butterflies the 3D look, adhere only the inside of the wings using a small amount of glue and lift the wings with your fingers.
