DOTTY and DREAM POP reborn

So, here I am again, posting months after my last blog. I don't know why this is so hard for me.  as much as I talk, you'd think I would be able to hammer these posts out in a heart beat.  Oh well, I guess we'll just see you when I see you.  I am continuing to try and make time to post here.

This month my club members couldn't do the BUZZ and BUMBLE paper pack like we had planned (I don't want to talk about it!) so, we resurrected the last two NSD special papers and made pages and cards with them. We'll start with the fun, pastel, summery DOTTY paper pack.

Now, before we go much further, I have to add a disclaimer.  I LOVE PINTEREST!!  and I stalk it and CASe (copy and steal) from PINTEREST all the time.  This is one of those instances.  I didn't design this page.  I found it, and the cards, on PINTEREST and CASed them.  I guessed at the dimensions and put the pages together so they would look like the pages I fell in love with.  If you want to see the original designer, please refer to my PINTEREST/CTMH.

So, now that that is out of the way, on to the pages!
Isn't this a great page?  I love the banners in the left hand corner, all the bright colors on the KRAFT CS. and the double layering of the pictures on the left page appeals to me too. I don't have my journaling in there yet, I'm not sure which boys album this is going to end up in, but I think I am going to put my journaling on the right hand page below the 3 pictures on the top.
I love this card.  It is a design from the MAKE IT FROM YOUR HEART design book by CTMH.  I use this design book so often.  I don't care what papers you use, you just can't go wrong when you pull your design from one of CTMH's design books.  The inspiration for this was also found on PINTEREST, but the design is #19 from the MIFYH book.
Isn't this card great?  I love the new M sized 'THANK YOU' stamp!  and I think that this design really sets it off well.  I used double sided paper for my card base, the inside is a pale grey dotty pattern.
Again, PINTEREST inspired.  I was going to use a different pattern, but this is so simple and fun.  I love the banners and the one brad.  Oh!  I just realized that the brad is supposed to have a bow tied around it with BAKERS TWINE.  Some one dropped the ball!  (**blush**)
And here are the same designs only with the DREAM POP paper pack.  the only difference is the third card.  I repeated the #1 design and changed the sentiment.  I really enjoyed working with these 2 papers and I am thrilled to have more pages done for the 2009 album.  I am really hoping to get close to caught up soon so I can concentrate on making some fun mini albums and trying some different scrapping techniques.  Well, that is it for now.  I will be adding some catch up pages soon.  But, today, it's time to shower and get ready to go out on the bike.  What a gorgeous day!!  Hope you enjoy these last days of summer!  C
