Polkadot Parade

 Happy Monday!
I had a super creative weekend - got a ton of larger projects done, and enjoyed some great summer weather too!
Last week I noticed that my friend Alvina had posted the last of her cards using the Playful Polkadots Simply Scrapping Kit and was nice enough to mention my cards. So... I'm returning the cyber-love and sharing them today along with a link back to her website. Check it out! She's got some cute ideas to share!
I did all of these cards at a class Alvina had last month. The class was actually for an envelope photo album using this same Simply Scrappin kit but since I don't have any photos suited to this kit and I'm not that into scrapbooking, I went my own way and made cards instead. It had been a while since I did any squares so this was a good refresher exercise for me. 
For the most part, I just used the papers and embellishments from the kit and just added my own ribbon, rhinestones, buttons etc to dress things up a little more. Obviously there are a lot of options in this kit, but these 8 cards came together pretty quickly. There are a couple where I added a BigZ die or Spellbinders die to the mix, but stamping was pretty minimal. Anyway, I love how they all turned out, don't you?

Here's the list of stuff I used beyond the kit:

Spellbinder's Lacey Circles dies, Scallop Lace edge punch, BigZ Butterflies die, BigZ Scallop circle die, assorted ribbons, corduroy buttons, Crystal Stickers gems, Kaiser half pearls, foam dimensionals, felt buttons, Flowers Summer embossing folder (Sizzix)

 Enjoy your day!
