May Hip 2B Square Layouts and Cards

I am so not a blogger.  I had this post done over a month ago and thought I had posted it,  yet today when I went in to update with the June layouts, I realized it was still in draft form. 

So, I hope you enjoy my May layouts.


As soon as I saw the banner from the Dear Lizzie stickers I knew it was perfect for my Mother's Day Tea pictures.  I backed most of the stickers with either white cardstock or the black paper from Crate Paper.  I added some machine stitching and hand cut some flowers from the Basic Grey PB&J patterned paper.  I also went into my stash and found some black pearls to put in the center of the flowers. 


The blues, red and golds of this months kit were perfect for my son's little league pictures.  The bracket paper in the middle was cut using a Lucky 8 punch.  If you don't have a punch or die cut machine that can do that, you can trace one out from another die cut paper you have on hand.


I am quite new to using masks and am finding them really fun.  It's taken me a few tries on practice paper to get it the way I wanted.

I love the chevron mask, so that was the inspiration for this page.  I used chevron's everywhere on this page.  I hand cut the My Minds Eye Chevron paper.  I hand cut the chevron out of the Echo Park Sweet Day plaid paper.  I used a paper punch that punches the triangle chevron edge and I used a punch that I have that punches out the rickrack. 


Using one sheet of 12X12 cardstock, you can make 8 mini 3x3 cards to give away as a give or to have on hand when you need a card.  I think I am giving these away to a friend as a gift.  I will make some little envelopes and then tie them all up in a bow.

Here is my mini collection.  I basically used up a lot of my scraps that I had left over from the kit after finishing my layouts.

Oh Snap! Card!

I really loved the little Dear Lizzie camera die cut sticker.  This was a very simple card to make.  I backed the camera and the title with the charcoal paper from Crate Paper.  I think the title is perfect for the birthday's that you are a little late on. 

Thinking of You Card

I was having a hard time deciding how to use the cute little moped die cut sticker.  I love the sweet color palette that the moped has so went off of that to determine the color of the background and banner.  I pulled a sentiment stamp out of my stash and wah lah,  a cute little card that anyone would love to receive.
