Today I would like to share with you my projects which features the Color Your Life—April Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout April 2018 for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. 
As April is the Month that Close to My Heart features Gimme Some Sugar Scrapbooking KitI made up all the pages and with the scraps and some of the cards and then I used the design from the Kit but changed it up a little..

This is the optional cards in the kit that I got the cutting guide from.

This is the pattern using the Celebrate from the Stamp of the Month. I decorated it with the sticker from the Gimme Some Sugar Complements and the cork hearts from the Gimme Some Sugar Cork ShapesI stamped the Celebrate in Black ink.

Then I flipped the paper over (from green check to the pink flowers) and rotated it to be a landscape version. I also added some Peacock cardstock underneath. I stamped the always and put it on 3D foam tape. I also stamped the stitching looking stamp along the bottom of the celebrate and embellished with the flower sticker from Gimme Some Sugar Complements and the Pink PearlsI really loved the simple use of the pattern in different ways makes it looks so different. 

The last card I made was below, I used one of the 4x6 picture my life cards and made it into a smaller card 4 x 5.25 size by slicing it and removing a section in the middle.

I was going to make it a landscape card and then decided to do a portrait card. 
Then I added some half inch strips (one zip and one cardstock) to the top of the So Kind that I stamped with Black Memento ink. The S and O were from the Hostess Reward Stamp (featured in the Seasonal Expressions catalogue). I embellished with stickers (hearts and flowers) from the Gimme Some Sugar Complements and the Pink Pearls

    1. Thanks Shaunna, I'm glad you like that one. It wasn't my favourite but I did love all the extra bits on it, and that curly linear stamp too.
