April Papertrey

Can't forget to put up my projects this month:

Tag It's #3: I used Zig Markers to color the flower cluster stamp. Took inspiration from Betsy's MIM video a few weeks ago. And pulled the bug trail from Boy Basics: Frog Hop for the cute bumblebee.

Floral Fusion #3: I had that Wild Hibicus flower was at the top of the wreath (Wreath for All Seasons) until I went to photograph it. Last minute change to put it in the middle. Think Big Favorites #3 and Tag It's #3 getting pulled into the party as well.

Train Tracks. Oh how I love you. You remind me of my little boy. He was psyched to see you come out of the box and has been begging to play with you ever since. 

Ad Sense. Use that die to make a medallion. Easy piesy.

Now true story. I showed Matt this card. I show Matt all my projects for his approval. He took one look at it using Background Basics: Chevron Stripe and said, "Wow, you can use that stamp set for both masculine and feminine projects". I didn't even prompt/coach him on that ladies. I was mighty impressed.

And lastly, My Father, My Hero and Grunge Me. Made for each other. Easy to pull this one together. I think the stars are a natural fit.


  1. Totally love your cards Erin, especially the train one - too cute! And I love Matt's reaction to the versatile chevrons ;)
