I usually don't participate in challenges, but this one really appealed to me.  The challenge was to MAKE A CARD USING A LAYOUT DESIGN FROM ONE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE BOOKS (Magic, Imagine, or Reflections).  Also using items from the current Idea Book.  My 6x6 card was from Magic:  Deck of Cards.  I used Florentine paper pack.  Also on the layout are Flutter Shapes, Durables Round Studs , and of course I used Art Philosphy Cricut Cartridge.

So I CHALLENGE you to do the same!  See how creative you can be!

My name is Melissa and I am a scrapbook supplies HOARDER.  There I said it.  I have recently decided that it is time to USE it or LOSE it.   Are you with me? 
I am seriously going to try to use up some of my partial paper packs.  It's ridiculous how many paper packs I have that retired YEARS ago.  This layout is very uber fact I did it late late at night and didn't do much at all to it.  BUT, the pics ARE on a page ready to be put in an album. So, Ta-da!  The paper pack is from CTMH--Stardust.  It was a really cute pic.  I used the little accessories and stickease that went with it.

My latest favorite thing

I am totally in love with one of our new paper packs--Stella.  It is so gorgeous.  I scraplifted this from Amanda Canale.  I saw it at retreat a few weeks ago and KNEW I would make several.  This is my first attempt.  I really like how it came out.  I know I will be making a lot more.  I'm thinking teacher appreciation, birthday gifts, etc.  I made this one for my sweet friend, Chandra.  Chandra...if you see this act surprised when you open it.  HAHA!  I put this in a 12x12 frame.
