I have been having a ton of fun decorating these letters for one of my very favorite places to shop in Fishers, Best of What's Around. This set features papers from Karen Foster Design and some adorable stickers I found in a local supercenter. I love that every set of letters I make is unique!
Please send me a message if you'd like to own your very own set of decorated letters. I can create them for most holidays, sports, hobbies, or themes.

Today is the first day of school in our town, so I though today would be perfect to share Karen Foster Design's new school collection mixed with other school products they currently carry. Click on any photo to get a closer look!
I seriously can't stand how cute Matthew looks in this photo! It was taken on his first day of 4-year-old preschool. He was such a cool dude, even that young! I LOVED mixing together brand-new school KFD products with olders ones for this layout.
There are papers for preschool-5th grade this year with matching stickers. I used the notebook paper and punched a "torn" border on the left side to give it a more traditional look. The Stacked Statement makes a perfect title! I simply trimmed it in half so I could make the title fit the space that was available on my layout. I used stickers in several places and even added Rub-bits to look like doodling in the corners of the notebook paper.

I'm back today with another new scrapbook collection by Karen Foster Design. Today, it's a zoo around here! Be sure to click on any photo for a closer look!
I used several papers in this collection as well as the Zoo Stacked Statement. I just love all the texture they have! I also strung together several colors of Scrappers Spools with Crazy Coils to create a banner of sorts. The baby chimp was dangling from a net, so I carried the idea along in my scrapping products.
Next up is a thank you card with a zoo theme. I created a bit of a shadow box feel by die cutting a label-shaped hole and mounting the entire panel up on foam adhesive.
My final zoo project is a decorated gift bag. The giraffe sticker with his long neck needed a special place to hang out, so I created a die cut panel of cardstock as his home. Layered papers, a sticker title, and Scrappers Spools tied to the bag handle make this a unique gift wrapping.

Today I'm starting a series of posts that share projects I made using some of the new summer CHA lines from Karen Foster Design. Today is Christmas in July!
Please click on any photo for a closer look.
First up is this layout. I sliced and diced two different papers to make the background and featured the adorable Stacked Statement across the center.
Probably my two favorite things about Karen Foster Design products are any type of brads and their Stacked line of products. Here I added a red Birthstone Brad and one Playful Swirl Dot Brad (I call them the candy brads!) I also added the tree sticker on the end with some foam adhesive.
Next is this Christmas card. On the outside it appears to be a simple card with cardstock bands and a Sticker sentiment. But the surprise is waiting inside....
This card has a pop-up Santa and sleigh! He's loaded down with toys and has even scattered some toys on the "floor" of this card. Behind him in the distance is a forest of snowy trees cut from papers in this collection. Pop up cards are my new obsession, and I had a blast creating this little scene.
