"Inspired By" Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to Joy's Life Design Team "Inspired By" Blog Hop! 
The inspiration for my layout is this photo I found on Pinterest. I really liked all the colors and stripes so I decided to go from there. 
 I created a 6x6 layout for my Project Life album. Joy's stamps really tie everything together. I intentionally left the upper right part blank, I plan on journaling later. 
Yup, this is one of the new stamps. It's from That Tastes Punny stamp set. 
This sentiment is from the Wild Life Puns stamp set. An oldie, but a goodie!

Some Bunny loves you + Hello Sunshine ♥

Hello, hello ♥
I'm very happy to be sharing two projects over at Joy's Life Design Team blog today. I have been feeling very crafty lately :) I made a cute little treat box for Easter goodies. 
This sweet sentiment is from the Wild Life Puns stamp set. I'm telling ya, all of Joy's stamp sets are so versatile, you can use them anytime! 
 This box is from the Artiste cartridge
I couldn't find the bunny layer... to be honest, I don't even know if it exists lol so I improvised. Using my Gypsy, I copied the box twice and moved the box all the way off the mat, only leaving the bunnies. Once cut, I just trimmed the bottom and layered them onto the box. 
All of the pattern paper is from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic Kit. For the bunny's eye, I used black Enamel Accents. I faintly added blush on the bunny using blending chalk. For the glitter dots, I used Stickles in Lime Green. 
I think I mentioned this before, but on Instagram we have been having quite a few Project Life card swaps recently. With Spring already here, I couldn't think of a better sentiment for these cards! Aren't they cuuuuute?!?  You can find me here on Instagram :) 
The sentiment I used on the Project Life cards is from the Pun In the Sun stamp set. 

In case you missed it, Joy's new release is available for pre-order! *Enabler alert: Pre-order My Hero, Punny Animals, and That Tastes Punny and SAVE on the price + free shipping + 5 action wobbles!

Last thing, I swear :)

The Sky's the Limit LO

Hello everyone! I hope everybody had a fabulous weekend! 
This week's challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Spring is in the Air. All you have to do is use a kite or balloon in your project. 

I decided to make a layout for my Project Life album since I've been dying to use the page protectors with four 6x6 spots. This one was super easy because the design was a layout already, I just embellished it.  The balloons are from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge
The sentiments "The Sky's the Limit!" and "BIG {{{Hugs}}}" are from the Scrappy Moms Designer's Choice stamp set.
The face on the pink balloon is from an oldie, but goodie Peachy Keen stamp set: Everyday Character Face assortment
The face on the yellow chevron balloon is from Peachy Keen's Funshine Face assortment. This face is one of my favorites ♥
