Mix it up

Just a reminder...Mixer #16 is up at Mix It Up!
I was very much inspired by this week’s challenge to use rub ons in a fun and unique way. I had been going through some old CK magazines and saw a fun technique that Jennifer McGuire had used and so I decided to give it a try. I cut circles out of cardstock and then took rub ons and placed them randomly on the circles. I trimmed them off around the edges with a craft knife. I then cut the circles in half and used them to make a scalloped border along the bottom of my page. It was a great way to use nearly an entire package of rub ons!
Here is my LO for this week's challenge:

Scrapbooking is pure joy to you. You are imaginative and probably don't mind getting messy in the pursuit of your art. Your pages reflect your playful personality. You enjoy celebrations and may have many photos of happy gatherings. You see inspiration everywhere you look.

Is that me?!

And another fun thing... these pretty paper roses! I saw this tutorial and just had to share it with you all. It is actually pretty easy. As soon as I saw it I had to sit down and give it a try. I definitely can't wait to play with this technique some more and add these pretties so some of my projects!


Thanks for stopping by!
