Creating for Scrapbook Steals: Authentique Free Bird Cardmakers Dream Bundle

     Good morning! Thank you for stopping by on this Memorial Day (in the USA, anyway :) weekend! I am so pleased to be able to show you what I was able to create for Scrapbook Steals today. It was so much fun to see what kind of cards I could come up with using the Free Bird Dream Bundle. The scrapbooking supplies provided in this bundle are so abundant! There was so much paper and so many embellishments, pretty much anything I thought of, I could make happen. Not only that, but each of the cards you see below has a twin. I made a total of 12 cards. And that was using only 1/7th of the actual kit! These scrapbook supplies are PLENTIFUL to say the least.  Scrapbook Steals Design Team member Cyndee, came up with a fun sketch for us to work with and here are some of my designs!

This one used that adorable little typewriter embellishment! I have a bunch left too so I can use them on more cards. Pop dots make the embellishments stand out so well too!

I really liked the simplicity of this one. I love that paper at the top too! 

We have many graduation parties coming up next month. I used some of the kit to make a few cards for the graduates. The phrases on the Authentique embellishments lend themselves well to cards like these!

I was able to satisfy my love affair with clouds with this one! Again, those embellishments are just perfect. 

There is no sentiment on this one for a reason :) The card is versatile enough that I thought I'd wait and see what kind of event I needed it for and add the sentiment later. 

I had fun making this one. I embossed the Free Bird papers and then sanded them to get the look I wanted. The texture and weight of the papers make it easy to emboss and play with them. 

Here is a photo of all of the cards that I made. Again, I only had 1/7 of the entire kit! Can you believe it? This bundle is LOADED! 

I am so glad that you stopped by to take a look today. If you are new reader...welcome! I'd love it if you would become a follower! Please feel free to leave a comment below. I read them all! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
