I love the new Simple Stories Vintage Bliss line.  The colors are muted and beautiful.  I used it in the blog hop last week and I created this piece for the Memory Works April Express Kit blog post and I wanted to share it here too because I really love how it turned out.

I used my Nestabilites label dies--both the Grand Nestabilities and regular sized to create the layers.  I also added lots of ink on the edges.  I had Nestabling from Want 2 Scrap and added that as an edge for this piece.  

I used another Spellbinders die to create the rolled rose and leaves.  The dangling charm was a sticker from the embellishment sheet, covered with an idea'ology fragment.  The laser cut butterfly came with the kit, the two smaller butterflies are Recollections and the bling from my stash.  The seam binding was colored with Distress Ink.  The garden stamp I picked up at StampScrapArt from Rubbernecker stamps.  The little dangle teardrop is from Maya Road.  I love how it turned out.  Wait, I think I said that already.  Need a Memory Works consultant?  I'd be happy to show you all the great papers, embellishments, stamps, inks, tools and other supplies we carry and hook you up with Simple Stories Vintage Bliss supplies.

Be happy, get scrappy!

Spring Summer Preview Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Memory Works Spring/Summer Catalog Preview Blog Hop!

Congratulations on making it to the end!

You have arrived here from  For a complete list of participants or to start from the beginning of the hop, please visit the Memory Works blog.

I worked with the new Simple Stories Vintage Bliss line.  The colors are a tad muted which gives it a vintage look and all the flowers and butterflies put you in mind of Spring.  I created a tag and a layout using this line.

I used the beautiful distressed wood paper for the background and layered in the chevron and polka dot  papers.  I made good use of the sticker and brad embellishments and used them to create a pattern on the polka dot paper.  

This tag uses that polka dot paper again--it is definitely a fave!, along with a die cut label, butterfly and spiral-rolled rose and leaf.

So, who's ready for a prize?  Leave a comment here and I'll draw a name on Friday.  Include your email address so I can let you know you have a fun prize on it's way.
