About the Celebrating Ordinary Moments Blog

Mission Statement
Thank you for checking out my blog. I started this blog to create a place where people are able to find inspiration and share ideas. I find myself surfing the web looking for inspiration that is unique and different. If I find an interesting tutorial I'll share it with you. I will include a "live" link back to the original blog, store or web site so that you may have the option to visit and learn more about the designer and other services, class or kits they may offer. By posting tutorials I am hoping to help inspire people that are interested in creating something fresh and new.

The Beary Scrap Guest Designer Call Count Your Blessings

By Corrine Paul

I created this page from a sketch the Beary Scrap DT Guest Designer Call sketch challenge above. Now that I see it on my laptop I think I will need to change the title color from pink to the same green that I used for the flower stems and leaves. I think that will balance out the colors and make the title stick out a little more.
Materials Used: Creative Memories Jumbo Circle, Creative Memories 12 x 12 Mat & Blade Set, Creative Memories Corner Rounder, Fiskars Softouch scissors, Fiskars Paper Trimmer, Fiskars Flowers Stencil and cutting blade, Jim Holtz Distress Ink, Stampendous Class a' Peel stickers, Elmer's glue pen, Peer tweezers, alligator clip, brown chalk, My Mind's Eye Simply Delightful paper stack.
