Magnolia LO for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

With mother's day coming up I wanted to make a LO of an old photo from just Mother's day.

I've used a mix of products from the store. The Magnolia paper is fabulous on it's own, but I stamped some Magnolia Love background and added some cracks with Kaierscraft clear stamp and the paper took a whole new dimension.

There is a lot of layering going on and lots of different shapes to look at. But the LO is still very plain and simple.

Products used from the store:
12x12 paper Magnolia ROSE PATH
12x12 cut-apart sheet, May from Place in time by Graphic 45
Divine paper pad 6x6, prima marketing
Kaisercraft clear stamp CRACKLE
Kaisercraft clear stamp DREAM BIG
Magnolia rubber stamp LOVE BACKGROUND
Magnolia die SCALLOPED TAG (similar)

DIY Project life kit from The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Today I'm here showing you how you can make your own pocket scrapbooking cards.
You might have seen my other post on this subject (HERE and HERE) or if you're like me you cut up your 6x6 paper pads.

Well, now I have another angle on the matter :)
The scrap (2x6) piece will with a littte bit of help make a wonderful accent on a simple background. Here I used a die cut shape from Spellbinders. I also made a see through shape in one of the cards.
The rubber buggy also has stamps for both background and sentiments, here I have used both from Kaisercraft. I've also put a belly band from G45 cut-apart sheet. I hope you find some of this useful. I will mix both of these techniques in my pocketed scrapbooking using this for journaling and background for large photos and use previous tech for filler cards. 

Example of products from the store that you can use:
6x6 paper pad (used on this post Prima marketing divine)
Washi tape (love my tape red/green/yellow stripe)
Stamps (dream big & tiny dots) 
Die cuts (spellbinders label one & MFT leafy flourish large)

Thanks for visiting!!!

Don't forget to pop by the store - Kellie has stocked lots of new goodies recently!!
