I gathered my materials and cut my card bases. I made the cards a standard 4.25x5.5 size when folded and cut the white cardstock slightly smaller to fit on the card front.It was this white cardstock that I embossed in the next step.
To emboss, simply place your cardstock in the embossing folder and run through the Evolution machine.
Here is what the cardstock looks like after being run through the machine:
After embossing the white cardstock I added an embossed pattern to each of my card bases, added some cards from the Tangerine Albums Made Easy kit and the diecut pieces I made from the Adhesive Cork. I added some enamel shapes and my cards were just about done.

If you want to play along all you have to do is check the blog posts from this week, use the clues given for each day, find all 5 numbered eggs and re-post them in your Facebook or Instagram feed with the tag #noelmignon. One lucky person will win a free May kit!
One of our favorite family traditions at Easter time is dyeing eggs. Each year we each get to do a few and the girls love it- and the bonus is they will actually EAT the eggs after they are done so they don't just go to waste. This particular year Sarah was so excited to try her egg (she can't be more than 3 years old here) that she tried to eat it right through the shell. We coached her a bit and helped her to know what to do. It's hard to remember when it was just these two little girls!
I am excited to share that I am now a part of the Noel Mignon kit club design team.
I've been a fan of Noel's kits for years and had the chance to guest design a couple of months ago and was invited to join the team.
With the uncertainty of our upcoming adoption, not knowing how long we will have to wait for a referral, I find myself saying YES to opportunities now since I know that I will soon have to say no to many of them.
Anyway, I have created a layout for today using the April kit, Social Butterfly, which you can find at the Noel Mignon store. I think there are still two left!
I used the circle hearts cut file from Loni Stevens only I duplicated it to create the background.
Oh, since you probably can't read the journaling very well I will share the story behind the title. One day I was tucking Lily in for a nap and told her that I loved her. She said, "I love you, too. You're my sweetie cake." I knew it would be perfect for a page and it was something I wanted to remember about her so this was perfect! I love the sweet little things that kids say.
The paper background is from the Basic Grey Spice Market collection and I used embellishments from Jillibean Soup (orange alpha stickers, Sprinkles wood dots), October Afternoon (journal spot, heart, love stickers), Basic Grey (metal shape), Studio Calico (fabric bow) and American Crafts (cork arrows). The cord and orange fabric tape are from Maya Road.
Our oldest daughter started piano lessons last Fall and has come such a long way from not knowing the notes to being able to play songs with both hands. She plays better than I can, but I never had lessons. I am so proud of her for her hard work, for not complaining about practicing and for LOVING to work in her theory book. I don't know many kids who enjoy theory as much as she does.

Have a great day!
I have a sick little one so we are taking it easy today.
Maybe I will get some scrappy time :)
Come back tomorrow for some more quick card ideas using Pebbles Special Delivery.
