Whiteboard Calendar with Paper House Productions

I decorated this whiteboard with the Paper House Productions Project Pads. There is a frames and sentiments pad, feathers pad, butterflies pad and hearts pad. My daughter loves to dance and is always making calendars to keep track of her practice. I found this whiteboard and decided to make some decorations for it. The project pads are so easy to use. The shapes pop out and just need to be glued together. I added some magnetic tape to the back so now my daughter can place things anywhere she likes. She liked it so much she made a whole bunch of decorations herself.
Here are some close-ups:

Be-you-tiful Layout

I made a list of all the techniques I would like to try and got one done this weekend. I used my Silhouette Cameo to perforate the flower pattern on my layout. Then I painted the pattern with water colours and Color Shine. I finished it by stitching around it with four ply embroidery thread.
I painted the title pink and double-layered the letters so they would stand out. I used the packaging technique to do the background. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Sweet Hearts Layout

I made this layout just for fun. No challenges or design team work. I decided I needed a moment to just step back and do something without any restrictions and I love how it turned out. You really can't go wrong with the Cute Girl collection from Crate Paper.
I took random scraps from my 6x6 paper pad and built the layers at the top and bottom of the page. I tacked them down with some tape and then ran my sewing machine across them and left the thread hanging at both ends. I decided to do the same with all the other tags on the page. I finished it off with some thickers and enamel dots on the ice cream cones. It took me a long time to figure out what title to use and then where to put it.

Hello Baby Girl Picture Frame for PHP

Hello! Today I am on the Paper House Productions blog where we have teamed up with Pen Blades. I decided to go off the page and make a picture frame.
I'm so happy with this frame. Take a look at the before picture and you will see why!
Look at that awful frame! I'm so glad I kept it in the hopes that a better idea would come along. The Paper House Productions craft set did just the trick. The papers are actually decals and there are some 3D embellishments and alphas. All I needed to do was trim the decal with the pen blade and add embellishments.
Here you can see that I covered the front with one piece then I cut out the middle and folded it around.
Here is the finished recovering of the frame and the pen blade.
I made the fan by accordion folding a long strip of paper every quarter inch after scoring the paper. I taped the ends together in a circle and punched some circles to cover it. I used a glue gun and pop dots to hold it all together on the frame. I finished it off with some puffy stickers that can be found in the Hello Baby Papercrafting Kit or bought separately.

Your Time To Shine - Sketches In Thyme

I got to work with another great sketch this week by Bev Code at Sketches In Thyme. It had so many possibilities. I decided to use some cut files to fill the empty space and photos taken by my friend Darlene. She was able to get some pictures of my daughter at nursery school while I was at work.
Here is the sketch:
