- colors - red, blue, yellow with a bit of green thrown in for good measure
- a bit of vintage perhaps?
- buzzing like the bees of summertime

I love to read and look at books for inspiration. I am at my local library at least once a week with my kiddos. Our library has an online request department so I am constantly ordering new books to read. Here are a few of my favorites for 2010...

They are all the rage it seems lately when it comes to scrapbooking and cardmaking! I've seen them as stamp-sets, patterned papers, canvas and chipboard embellishments and yes, fun cardstock stickers! Such as those adorable ones by Sassafrass Lass that just so happen to be in this months kit!
Check out all the fun ways that the Mosh Posh design team used different banner stickers from this month's kit below:
Are you inspired to jump in on the banner trend with your crafting? Be sure to share any creations with us that you come up with using banners! We would love to see them!

Cindy Tobey - she is my favorite scrapbooker right now. I look forward to seeing her layouts and techniques in CK each month.
Free actions for Photoshop at Deviant Art.
Custom printed Binders from Zazzle. How great would these be for a vacation or memory album?
Lego Art from the Muji Store. How much is shipping from Japan? I need to figure out how to make these little kits on my own. See it here too.
Jones Soda. Always a treat for the mouth and eyes.

Here is the sketch that Laina shared with us this month for one of our design team uploads...
Laina's layout based on the April sketch:
Sometimes starting off with a sketch is just what I need to get my creative juices flowing. If you decide to whip up a layout using this month's Mosh Posh sketch be sure to share a link to it here in the comments as we would love to check it out!

And my layout based on this month's sketch:
Hope you are finding some creative time this weekend!

I was scrapbooking with a friend this past weekend who told me that she has a hard time finding cardstock to match her patterened paper. I was surprised that she had never heard of the Bazzill Matchmaker site. It's such a great tool when you are stumped to find the right color. I stopped by the site this month to check out color selections to match my Basic Grey Koshi add-on kit.
Do you see #5-510 Parakeet? My favorite Bazzill color of all time.
Don't forget...Kristen offers a cardstock add-on here at Mosh Posh every month (which I always order!). She picks fabulous cardstock colors that I cannot find at my LSS. I hope you find this tool handy too.

Check out the gallery for April here. This month we were so happy to have Guest Designer Jing Jing Nickel join us...I've always admired her work and am so in awe of what she came up with using this month's kit. Here is one favorite of mine, be sure to check them all out in the gallery!
I always enjoy what Laina comes up with...and this month was of course no different. Check out all that's going on here on her layout titled "First Lost Tooth." There are so many techniques and lots of product on the page but it totally works and I love it! Thanks Laina for sharing all your beautiful work with us each and every month.
Amy's pages are just a delight this month (and every month!). I love how she scrapped so many of her Disney photos using this month's kit. The bright colors and fun patterns were a perfect fit for them. I love how she adds inks and sprays to her work too...I see a request for a tutorial on how she uses them!
I, of course enjoyed playing with this month's kit as well and have nothing but scraps left to show for it! =) That's always a good sign!

So I was spending way too much time in my google reader, and came accross this project over at the Tatertots and Jello (which is one of my favorite crafty blogs). I really want to try this project out. How cute is this? It just screams spring to me.
Take a look here for the details. Have a great Thursday!!
