Love Birds and Mojo Mondays

It’s been snowing here in the South and let me tell you, we have no idea what to do with ourselves!  The news here shows people sledding in canoes, skating on roads, etc.  We are meant to be a sunny and warm place, I am sure!  I spent my time freezing and stamping!  Today’s post is all about using up the extra pieces from the Love Birds Simply Scrappin Kit that I used for my Scrapbook Class this month. 

You can still order the Scrapbook Class kit to be completed at home and have enough stickers and DSP to make these cards too!

The first card is a 5-1/4” square Certainly Celery card with accents of Basic Pearls, a sentiment from the set, Full of Life, stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink, a  leftover button from the Holiday mini catalog and a length of So Saffron ribbon.  The bird and circles and designer paper squares are all from the Simply Scrappin Kit.  This card was based on a Mojo Monday sketch.  I LOVE to use sketches when I just can’t get going!

Okay, on to the next card!  This card is a standard size card made from an Early Espresso card stock base.  The scallop circle and the oval mat for the sentiment were punched from Certainly Celery card stock.  The Basic Pearls add a fun touch! 

Again, the designer papers, the sentiment and owl circle were from the Love Birds Simply Scrappin Kit.  This card was created using yet another Mojo Monday Sketch!

I didn’t even need a stamp to create this card!  And I think it’s just as cute as it can be and would make the perfect Valentine’s Day card.  What do you think?

Okay, one more card for you!  This next card was also made using the Love Birds Simply Scrappin Kit.

This one might be my favorite.  It is a standard size card made with the Blushing Bride cardstock.  It has lots of interest including the flower brads, taffeta ribbon and a sentiment from the Full of Life stamp set punched out with the Decorative Label punch.  The little hearts were punched out using the Two-Step Owl punch and the gorgeous border on the bottom was punched using the Eyelet Border punch.

I was on a “Mojo” roll so this card was also based on a Mojo Monday sketch.  It’s a great way to create a pretty card without so much WORK!  Try it out for yourself…

I hope you got some inspiration today and that you, too, will make use of the extra supplies you have after completing your Love Birds Scrapbook pages.  Happy SLEDDING!
