You are sweet

If you are looking for my baby layout for the SBC team, please click here

Hi, it's me again with my second post of the day. I am playing for the SOTM challenge for From The Heart Stamps. They have this cute kitty as a freebie and today, is the last day to enter for this challenge. 

The sketch has a circle for the main image but I went with a scallop rectangle instead. The scallops were done with my Cricut. I added some washi tape and colored the image with my prisma pencils. I also added some glossy accents to my red punched hearts (can't really see it here). The sentiment and the heart comes from an Avocado Arts set.

My sketch comes from I{Heart}Card Sketch

Baby layout

Hello and Happy Friday everyone. Finally the weekend is almost here and we are celebrating the lunar new year - the year of the horse today. Its my DT day at the Scrapbook blessings Club and today, I have a baby layout of my daughter when she was only a day old.

Please keep in mind that I have done this after 6 years, yes, that many. So I went with a simple layout and added some dimensional stickers from MME. Papers are from same company. I also added some handwritten journaling. The shapes were cut with my Cricut using the Elegant Edges cartridge.

So, what do you think? Please be honest.

Thanks and have a great day.

Thinking of You

Hi and welcome back to this week's challenge at Aud Sentiments. The theme is use a Valentine's sentiment of some type! . Easy Peasy right?

We got to play with some fabulous images from our fab sponsor, QKR Stampede, which by the way is offering 5 digis to the winner. 

I colored Boy with balloons with my prisma pencils, fussy cut and added some glossy accents to the balloons. I mounted him on some die cuts from my Elegant Edge cricut cartridge - love that one! I also added a border with my Fiskars punch and glued some ribbon sequins on it. 

The sentiment is from one of the Inkadinkado stamp set and I made that banner with scissors. I added some dimensional tape under the first black layer mat. 

Here's a close up

December 25...

Hello everyone and Happpppppy Monday!!! The snow and the windchill have made it impossible for me to stay outdoors...

This card is for the monthly Xmas challenge at DigiStamps4Joy. It's my first time playing over there and I was given this darling image to play with. Christmas is 11 months away but it's never too early to start right?

This card is fairly simple where I have cut the scallop edge with my Cricut and did the sentiment with the alphas stamps from the dollar bin from Michaels. Papers are from a Christmas Recollections paper pad.

Forever & Always Stuck on you

Happy Wednesday everyone and Brrr, is it a cold one here!!! It's -30 with the windchill and it will stay like this the whole week. Makes me want to stay indoors and not go out for anything...

Today, I played with one of Meljen's Designs digi, Doctor Bear, and since it will be valentine's day soon, I went with a love theme. Their challenge was to incorporate stickers and I used both epoxy and foam on my card. 

Papers come from DCWV and the shape was cut from my Cricut using the Elegant Shapes cartridge. The bear was colored with my prisma pencils and I added the shadow with my memento marker.

My sketch comes from Tuesday morning sketches.

You send me .... Stars

Hello again and I promise this is my last one for today. I wanted to try out for the Kraftin Kimmie Guest DT for the second time this month. There are so many talented people out there but I just gotta get in to at least say I tried even if I don't get it! I had to give my best shot!!!

My stamp is Patsy and she is retired but she is one of my oldies that I cannot part. I was inspired by Nicole, Sheri and Sharon  to make this card and here it is:

Hello and it's me again!!! How are you doing so far? The weather has suddenly become very cold and nasty. Snow fell again and I sure don't want to shovel anymore snow this year.

Welcome to this week's challenge from The HobbyCutz challenge where the theme is Lots of layers. Our sponsor this week is

Here's my creation

The image is Bubbly Sassy and she was colored with prismacolor pencils and memento markers. The mats were cut with my cricut each at 3 1/4" and 3 3/4" and some adhesived pearls were added. The papers are from Crate paper and the sentiment is a rub-on sticker. I had to add the "S" to complete the word since it got stuck on the non-adhesived paper.

Hi everyone and Happy Sunday!!! This week over at The Scrapbook Blessings Club, the DT was asked to make their own background paper. I was a bit scared since I usually do NOT resort to this since I hoard patterned papers...

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps

Since I had the image of a Rock Star, I knew that it had to have some pizzazz and this got me thinking on how to do I get this guy to shine?

An idea struck me when I found the Cupcake Party set. I chose the fireworks and stars, inked them with gold, brown and different shades of blues.

As you can see, I cut my background paper in 3 and mixed them to find a cohesive pattern.

Hope you have enjoyed this and should you need more inspiration, please visit us at The Scrapbook Blessings Club
