Something from My Little Shoebox...

They went up on the MLS blog yesterday, so it's time to show you the cards I made from the Pretty Little Things line! This is such a fun and versatile collection with it's little girls and flowers and garden images! The cards I made this month are quick, clean and simple because MLS makes it so easy to do that!
This one uses a piece from the die cut paper (Seed Packets), zigzag stitched for some fun, pop-dotted flower pot stickers and some of the glitter glazed alphabet stickers.
This get well card uses 3 journal tags for it's base, with stitching around the edges, a Cricut cut sentiment (from Beyond Birthdays) and more pop-dotted flower stickers.
These leaves are so easy to make - just hand cut some randomly shaped leaves, layer 2 or more together and stitch through all layers. Ink the edges and fold along the stitch line to create dimension.
This card has a matted journal square (Seed Packets) with some white glitter glaze alphabets (Snowflake), and a little girl sticker from the sticker sheet. Some added paper lace and you have a cute but quick card for the occasion of your choice! (The background paper is Grown With Love.)
More images from the sticker sheet! The clouds and sun are from the punch out die cut sheet and the cloud background paper is Seed Packets. The fence is pop-dotted and the whole card is stitched around and photo corner adorned.
Always love the simplicity and basic awesomeness that color blocking provides! These patterned papers are the b-sides of Just Add Water, Seed Packets and Lovely Lady. They are "joined" by zigzag stitching, with a flower sticker, some buttons and a rub-on sentiment added.
All Things Beautiful is one of my favorite patterns of this line! I made the graphics the focal point of the card by cutting the paper to include as much of the clothesline as possible, and stitching jute over the printed clothesline. Add a "punny" sentiment and some photo corners and you have a very quick and easy card!
Thanks for stopping back again, and I promise the very next post will be a CHA review! Maybe even today yet!!
