Boys to Men

Happy July everyone! Wow, did that ever sneak up fast! Where did June go? Becky here with my first DT post, and I couldn't be more excited!
I thought I'd start out by introducing myself telling you a little bit about me. I live in Cranbrook BC with my partner Trevor and our two children. Olivia is 9 and Sullivan is 1. We have a little Shih Tzu named Ruby and a new kitten named Paisley. I am an Elementary School Teacher by trade but I am taking some time off to stay home with Sullivan right now, and while we are at home I also look after two other little boys the same age. I have been papercrafting for about 10 years now, since I was pregnant with my daughter. I love everything about this hobby and I so excited to be a part of this team so that I can share my love of all things papercrafting with you! Anyways, enough about me, lets get to the scrappy stuff...

I ordered a bunch of fun goodies from the Scrapbooking Cafe Online store and waited patiently for them to arrive so I could play! Unfortunately Canada Post wasn't quite as eager I was and my parcel still hadn't arrived by the end of last week. Luckily for me I already own some product from SCO and so I was able to create a project for this post. Hopefully my new goodies arrive early this week so I can show them off to you in my next post.

First off, I made a simple little card for new baby boy. I used the This & That Charming line from Echo park and it made it so easy to put this together quite quickly.
Supplies used:
Echo Park Collection Kit This & That Charming Products used from the kit: Border Strips, Yardsticks, Dots & Plaid, Swirls, Instamatic, Element Stickers.
Bakers Twine
Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Antique Linen
Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares
Scrapbook Adhesives RunnerCombo
1/4" Scor tape
1/2" Scor tape
Misc supplies: buttons, white cardstock cardbase, embroidery floss, scalloped edge punch

For my second card I decided to make a Graduation card. This past weekend was graduation in my town and it was great to see all the young people all dressed up for Grad as well as for the Prom the following day.
Supplies used:
Echo Park Collection Kit This & That Charming Products used from the kit: Border Strips, Yardsticks, Dots & Plaid, Swirls, Primer, Journaling Cards, Element Stickers.
Echo Park This & That Charming Brads
Bakers Twine
Scrapbook Adhesives3D Foam Squares
Scrapbook Adhesives RunnerCombo
1/4" Scor tape
1/2" Scor tape
Computer generated sentiment: Font-Vintage Typewriter
Misc supplies: photo corners, buttons, white cardstock cardbase, embroidery floss, tab punch

I attached a sticker from the Echo Park kit to a piece of paper and ran it through my printer to get my sentiment. I used dimensional adhesives and popped up the journaling card to give the card some dimention, and also popped up the globe sticker so that it wasn't laying flat on the card.
On the inside of the card I continued with the Dr. Seuss quote from the sentiment on the front and printed out the poem. I added a few flags made from left over scraps to fancy up the inside a bit.

Well, there you have it, I've finished my first post! I hope you will stop by my blog Scrap Circus and say hello.
Have a great week!
