A Passion for Polka Dots


So, one of my papercrafting idols is hosting a challenge on her blog - the challenge was to create a card using polka dots, and funny thing was, I just did! I bought this paper at a new scrap store called NH Scrapbook Cabin in Amherst, - with my bestest friend and my daughter - we had a fun time shopping! I love this Imaginisce paper - it just screams "storybook" or "Hansel and Gretel" to me. So cute. My daughter loves it so much we're going to buy the whole line, including the stamps. Too cute. And here's a few other polka dot inspired cards I did for the challenge. Hope I win! :) Check it out at: Lilybeans Paperie.



Here's a picture of the newest scrap store in New Hampshire: NH Scrapbook Cabin. You should check out their web site - they have wonderful personnel and even serve coffee! Now that's what I call shopping! :)

I love your cards-especially the so tweet one. I never tire of polka dots-they go with everything. MP is inspiring. I actually purchased 3 of her cards through Etsy to give as gifts at Christmas. I wanted to see her actual work in my hand. Now I'll have to do the same with you now that you've been published in Handmade. Hope you've gotten your copy by now. I love your nest projects-both of them. The colors are so beautiful! You're so lucky to have a real store to go to-we've lost all of ours here. Sad.

Hi Lori,
Just visiting to see some of the entries in Melissa's challenge and it's so funny because I chose the same exact paper as you did in the first card, lol! Don't you LOVE that paper?! I love what you did with it :) Good luck in the contest.
