episode, so this is a series I do with my friends Sara Katlin and Sandy and our stamp theme this month was bugs, So at first I was a little intimidated. I'm going to be honest because I don't have a lot of bug stamps, but I have this stamp set from the stamp market that I hadn't used yet and it has the most adorable little bears on it, so I decided to get it out and I got it out. I have a matching outfit that goes with it that has those big hello paper

on it, so I pulled that out to see if I can incorporate that in too, but I have this photo of Parker and If you've been following and know how old Parker is, now you know this is a pretty old photo but he has a very happy expression on his face and it was actually one that was taken in I think we were at Disneyland so I decided to go with that so I'm taking paper from a bunch of collections different, which is one of my favorite ways to create, so I have something close to my heart, which is text paper, and then I back that up with a horizon ins page which is lime colored paper and then I have a canoe two dark green on the back layer and that's from the willow collection and then of course we can't have a design without taking out our Catherine Polar Ink so I used Rickey Lime to bring everything together and then I have two sheets of paper that I go to use on my layers and they are both from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, so we have made The rounds of all the collections are here in our newspapers, but the surprising thing is that all of these papers match each other very well, so try to remember when be searching through your stash.

Sometimes it's a lot of fun to create within a collection, but it's also. It's really fun to explore and find combinations of papers that you may not have thought of combining from different collections, that are completely different but can still create a very similar look to United, so as I'm putting the design together, I think that I want to use it. all these stars diagonally and then I'm trying to get the Bears in there and it just doesn't work for me so I go ahead and work backwards and get a bunch of those stars out so I really have my two types of groups and then I also have all my bears so I took some juniper mist Catherine polar ink and stamped those bears on white cardstock and then I just carefully cut them out and left a little white border.

so like I said we're really doing the rounds of collections on this design particular, so I decide that this little space at the bottom under my title would be perfect to put a little row of these bears and some of them will be glued flat and some will be glued with dimensional adhesive so that I sit along that edge and I love the way it looks, but it means I need to stamp some extra bears because I want to have a couple in different areas of my design, so while I'm putting them together and squishing them together. together a little bit.

I didn't realize this until later when I looked at the design, but it looks like the little gray scalloped one I cut out and put underneath is almost like little bodies that match perfectly, so it makes my little bears look like those you know, you can separate them and there are animals of different sizes inside the little boat, like those little toys, which kind of make it look like that and it looks really cute, but that wasn't their intention at all. look that way, so I went ahead and put two more bears at the top of my title, peeking out from behind my phone, and then I decided it would be fun to have a couple of them hanging upside down.

I stick with the same ones, like blues and greens, throughout the design. I have a bunch of these little puffy Maggie Holmes stickers, so I'm going to remove some of the stars. of that sheet because they have a perfect color to go with everything, so that's another collection that we have there. There were also a couple of little phrase signs that I thought looked really cute, placed around my barriers in my title. I added just a few little black drops of Nouveau to each of my groups just because I have the black and white image and those couple of little black signs and that's basically going to be enough for this design, so I hope you enjoyed seeing my
