Easel Card with Pocket and Tags

Hi everyone! I’m back with another creation.
I call this my inspirations for 2012; well, rather than resolutions.

It will be much easier to do things I want to resolve this year 
when I’m inspired to do it.
I also love interactive cards, paper crafts or projects; 
it comes along with lots of fun.
So I called this an

Easel Card with Pocket 

and Tags of inspirations

This easel card is made of chipboard so it will stand the whole year through...
 holds 6 small tags and 6 medium tags.

The pocket is an angel hair. 
I have also die cut the flower from angel hair, added a brad and 
just I love how it turns out!

Added a secret pocket in it with a beautiful flower button

and a quote inside the pull out!

 and finished it off with grey pearls, black lace, 
ribbons,  punch butterflies and of course blings on easel and tags!!!

Single Circle Layout

Yeah! We'll keep the ball rolling!!!
and so round and round it goes...
Round 1
 A challenge given by a new scrappy friend in Dubai named Sue...
and for Scrapbook ME Dubai
do visit and like this site at Facebook
The Challenge goes:

 Any Ideas? 
It's time to create, be creative and make sure creativity comes with lots & lots of fun!
So what do I have then?
something I still considered 'new'
something new for me, I guess, as this is my first single page layout and
first circle layout (well, second if we count the small round card)

 Round 2
The steps for the layout...
As my circle dies were too small for this layout
and remembered that I have a circle cutter only after finishing my LO...
I used a scallop die cut PP which I've gotten last year (but was not the color I was looking for), trace it  from 12x12 red card stock, again trace an outer ring/circle from a vanilla card stock and cut it all manually. Then there's the matter with the lace on the scallops (originally white colored) I glimmer misted it, cut it out and glued one by one so it will not be bulky on the side. Then cut the pattern papers, matted the photos and attached.

 Cut into half and dry embossed the circular ring with my big shot then distressed the sides with ink and attached. Glimmer misted the ruffled ribbon so it will match the LO (love how the color turns up, kinda vintage), attached cream ribbon on top of it  and glued. Attached the rub ons, flowers and punched leaves from the pattern paper.


Attached titles with additional rhinestones...The word beginning was originally mint green in color but accidentally one of the 'n' was ink with red, so I colored it with red Faber-Castell  brust tip marker and applied diamond stickles. Turns out shinny and sparkle's the page LOL. Finally, Distressed a butterfly with ink added blings and attached.  That's one bling-up butterfly!!!

Round 3
So what are we waiting for...
Here's what I have created:

 Round  4
 So here it goes again , a single round page layout.
