La~La Land Friday Inspiration

Happy Friday! The weekend is upon us once more and I am not going away for a change! These last few weekends have seen me packing suitcases and hitting the road with my hubby and our 3 kidlets. I am hoping to have a relaxing and fun weekend at HOME!

Today I have be card for this week’s La-Land Land Crafts Inspiration Friday. Every Monday and Friday La-La Land Crafts new Design Team will be bringing you a new inspirational theme. You are more than welcome to play along as we would love to see your creations with La-La Land Craft stamps. Please link your projects to our Customer Gallery.

This week the challenge was to create your own paper or chipboard embellishments. I just bought myself a nifty paper crimper and I knew that I was going to use it for this challenge.

I was so excited when I first saw cute Genie Marci! Right away it took me back to that old, old TV show I Dream of Jeannie. It was in re-runs in the afternoon when I was little and I just loved it. Of course, since my name begins with similar letters, that was what some of my friends called me too.

The whole time I was coloring her up, I was humming the theme song. So, I just have to share this with you. I found it over on YouTube!

Okay, so now that I have made sure that this song is stuck in your head for the rest of the day, here are the rest of the details on my card.

I punched out a couple of hearts using left over DP and ran them through my new paper crimper. It was ridiculously easy and I love how they look.

The sentiment was just tucked in under the ribbon and is from Stampin’ Up. I felt the card was still missing something so I pulled out some darker pink glitter paper and used my Marianne Die to create this fun swirl.

This is adorable and really does remind me of the "I Dream of Jeanie" series. The only thing is, I watched that show when it was NEW! Great coloring and embellies here. Very fun!
