You’ve Got a Friend in Me – May Blog Hop

I think we are all familiar with the song from Toy Story that you are probably singing in your head right now…. and if you weren’t I likely just changed that- you are welcome!  I also welcome you to our May blog hop which will feature our stamp set of the same name and LOTS of ideas for how you can use it!   If you have come from Melinda’s Blog then you are on the right path and all you need to do is read on and click the link at the bottom of my're the best free to be card

For my card I used the National Scrapbooking month paper ‘Free to be Me’.  I added some gold shimmer trim (left over from a past project) and a green sparkle for accessories.  My centre shape was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy.  The feathers added are from the ‘Feathers’ stamp set.

Here is a similar card but more simplified- it is what my party guests will be making this month.  The biggest difference with this one is the use of the gold polka dot washi tape to adorn the card.

To start the fun I want to share a project I initially created for an upcoming blog hop- I wasn’t sure if my new site would be up and running in time so I am not participating this month but still want to share my project with you!  February’s stamp of the month is a set called Wild Thing- the moment I saw it I fell in LOVE! My kid’s did too! They have been singing ‘What does the Fox say?’ for months and this was just perfect!

With this cute stamp in hand (and a small sampling of NEW Spring/Summer Idea book papers) I set out to create a Flip Stand Album.

I used washi tape (who doesn’t love washi) to add some pizzazz to my pages and of course cricut cuts- this cartridge coordinates with our Art Philosophy cartridge.  The theme of love also allowed me to use up some of the red accessories I had leftover from all my Christmas crafting!
