Friday DT Round-up!

Happy Friday Blogosphere!!!!

How about we kick off this Friday with some scrapbook inspiration:

This layout by Jenn leaves us all in awe of her seemless incorporation of all the Paris in Bloom kit contents! The Paris in Bloom kit is full of bright, whimsical papers and embellishments that will make any picture shine! Jenn also uses some Nerdy Bird Glitter Stickers!

BR-T's awesome photography skills go hand in hand with this fun layout based off of a Pink Elephant Sketch! BR-T uses the backside of the same paper that Jenn used for her layout. I spy a little souvenier attached to the 25 cent card!

Have a great weekend! Do any of you have fun plans in store!!!?

Hooray Hooray!!  It's Customer Project Day! 

Emily and her daughter Alex shared this adorable magnet board made with paper from the Material Girl mini deck and Earth Love chipboard. CUTE!

Michelle made this fun card using the boyfriend mini deck, chipboard and Humania Paperclips.  On her blog she said she made it for her father in law who likes to draw, so the pencil paper was a perfect match. So thoughtful and creative!

De made this sweet layout using the new "Paris in Bloom" kit and the little tree clip is from our "Modern Red" Kit.

Thank you so much for sharing!!! LOVE THESE!

Here are some projects using our current kit, Paris in Bloom:
Isn't Kelly's card SWEET!!!? I love the composition, the little banner with the twine, and the carefully cute flowers!

Here's my layout I made the other expressing my innermost excitement about being on the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design Team! It even includes a Buzz and Bloom Cloud!

Here are 2 projects from the fabulous BR-T using our item of the week, Shinzi Katoh Designs Good Luck OPP Tape which is 50% off this week:
Isn't this fun!!!? I just love all the elements and how seamlessly she's tied them together! She's a genius at her very own collage style!

For this card, she cute out those adorable little airplanes and added some thickers!!! SO CUTE! I spy the "Joy" Kit, American Crafts Chit Chat Thickers, and the Bam Pop M Stamp!!!

Last, but not least, here's a fabulous page designed by BR-T:
This is such an awesome layout!!!! I spy the Bam Pop Volume 3 Papers and Bots Like Us Stamps! The composition and balance of this page are spot-on!
