I made two projects a scrapbook page featuring my mom and my daughter Josephine and our new blossom paper & a mothers Day card with the stamp of the month. 

 I used the artist Cricut Cartridgeto cut the white pieces seen on page 71.  The layout was inspired by our idea books.

I used the Chevron Punch to add a little something bellow this photo and backed it with the teal shimmer trim.  I backed the Carnival washi tape with white card-stock so that it popped

Here is my card.  I used the April Stamp of the Month in the Smoothie ink.  I twisted the paper befor i stamped it to give dimension and then used the 3D foam tape to pop it up.
