A Star Is Born

Our challenge at My Sheri Crafts is to create a project with at least two stars in it for our "A Star Is Born" theme. I have been playing with the My Crush Bluebird book, so I decided to share a page. The My Crush books are Close To My Heart's answers to the popular Smash books. I have been using the My Crush album more like a simplified mini album than a junk journal, which is what it's originally meant for. The background paper is from the Skylark paper packet. I added a bird from Skylark Assortment, and punched a star border using a Martha Stewart punch. I layered a strip of Teal Shimmer trim on top of the vertical border. The "A Star Is Born" sentiment and the star arrows are from The Artbooking Cricut Bundle, stamped using Lagoon Ink.
This is the first page...I have 29 more to go.

Three In A Row Challenge

DT sister Sue gave us a tic-tac-toe theme for the biweekly challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Here's a picture of the grid:
Since the challenge name is "three in a row", I made three coordinating cards using the tic-tac-toe format. :-D Top right, top to bottom: embossed paper, pearls, flowers--
Middle row: pattern paper, image, pearls--
Bottom row: paper piecing, die cut, flowers--
For these cards, I used the Sparkling Spring and Botanical paper pack from Prima, pearl flourishes from Prima, die cut frames cut using Spellbinders dies, and the leafy flourish was cut using Cheery Lynn die. The images of the ladies are from Kanban stamps, colored using Copic markers. The white silk flowers were a "jackpot find" from Goodwill.
