Make | Card – “Dream Big”

Dream Big card | Blackbird Darlin

I don’t use foam adhesive very often, but the cloud and hot air balloon were just begging for a bit of a pop on this one. This was an easy card to put together with very minimal product!

After cutting the piece of patterned paper to fit the card base, I layered the smaller cloud sticker on top of the larger one with the pop dots, adhered pop dots to the back of the hot air balloon, and then stuck them down. The Dream Big title sticker I just placed at the bottom and then trimmed the overlapping edges. Done and done!

I have no interest in ever riding in a hot air balloon, but they sure are cute aren’t they?

Make | 12×12 Layout – Photobooth Fun

12x12 Scrapbook Layout | "Photobooth Fun" | Blackbird Darlin

The moment of discovering the woodgrain cardstock over at LCI Paper Company was a game changer for me. I. CAN’T. EVEN. It’s so great you guys, but the buying in bulk thing is the only deterrent. Unless you’re like me and all you want is woodgrain cardstock in bulk for the rest of your scrappy life.

The other things on this layout that are not woodgrain are: Film border washi tape from Michaels! Patterned paper from the 6×6 Echo Park This & That pad! Square picture prints from Persnickety!

Let’s talk about the title letters for a minute though. No, those are not Thickers. I know I’m going to get stoned by 93% of scrapbookers with broken Marvy Uchida punches for saying this, but…


I don’t get the obsession with Thickers.


Why?! Well, probably because I can cut my own by running adhesive-backed foam through my QK Revolution and not have stacks of X’s and Z’s in my stash.

So I guess I actually DO love Thickers, just the DIY version of them. (Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this) The alphabet I used was the 4×8 Chandelier die, and the foam itself is from Michael’s. The nesting circle die is also Quickutz, the big one in white cardstock, and the skinnier one in kraft. Journaling was just a black Micron pen on white cardstock scraps!

By the way, I really love those pictures. What a fun day that was!
