School Spirit Week

It's time for another sketch reveal at My Scraps & More Sketches today. Here's the sketch we had to work with.

And here's my layout

I decided not to mat the photos but still wanted to set them apart from each other so I used twine around the edges. Used my notebook punch for the borders on the top and bottom of the page and cut the pennants with my Cricut and attached them to some thick jewelry wire. Sprayed a little mist, added some stars and arrows and slapped down some letter stickers. This came together rather quickly once I got the photos sized and printed out. Not the best photos to work with but I just couldn't resist scrapping them!

So come join us at My Scraps & More Sketches where we reveal a new sketch every Friday! Hope to see you there!!!

Thank You Cards

Here are three Thank You cards I made for a friend last week. They also fit 3 different challenges over at Turtle Soup. We are just finishing up a month long sketchathon and all 3 cards are based on sketches. If you like sketches please come and check us still have a few days left to play along.

I really enjoyed making these cards. I don't make as many cards as I used to so this was kind of a treat for me and the best part was helping a friend.

Sunday Card Challenge

I'm a little late posting this but I had a Sunday Card challenge going on at Turtle Soup this past Sunday. Since we are having a month long sketchathon we used this sketch for our card challenge.

And here's my take on it.

The papers I used are all from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection. I just love the colors....makes me think of spring!

Birthday Guy

Over at Turtle Soup we have a Round Robin challenge going on each month. This past Saturday was my reveal day. Here's the layout I did for the challenge.

I think I went a little crazy with all the circles! This also fits a challenge at My Scraps & More where you had to use green and at least 4 of any shape on your layout. I used a stencil that I just picked up at Michaels in the paint section. I think that might just be one of my favorite stencils. It's just a 6x6 stencil but it's so easy to piece it together to cover more space or even a whole 12x12 page.

Thinking of You Card

Just wanted to share this card I made today. I'll be entering it in the Cards in Envy Green challenge.

This also fits a Monday Card Sketch Challenge over at Turtle Soup where we are having a month long sketchathon. If you like sketches, come check it out!

I'm 3

Today is our weekly sketch reveal over at My Scraps & More Sketches. If you like sketches, and who doesn't, stop by and play along. This weeks sketch was so fun to work with. I broke out the gesso and a couple of mists and even did a little hand stitching, which is so unlike me.

Sketch #72

This is my granddaughter who turned 3 last year. She was so excited for her Princess themed party. As you can see, she and her big sister both dressed up as little Princess' which is exactly who they think they are.

Please come join us, play along and upload your layout. There's a prize drawing every month!

Anniversary Flowers

I've got a Thursday Scraplift  challenge up over at Turtle Soup today. I picked this layout from our amazing gallery at Turtle Soup. I fell in love with the circles and the texture on this layout.

And here is my take on it

This photo is from my anniversary back in 2008. We were on vacation in Sedona, AZ  and my husband surprised me with this beautiful bouquet of flowers. They were gorgeous!
To make the circles, I first drew the circles and then glued the thread down and added the brads.

Come join us over at Turtle Soup for all kinds of challenges and right now we're having a month long stketchathon.  Hope to see you there!

Happy St. Patty's Day

Today I have an All Sorts Challenge up over at Turtle Soup. I decided to do a home decor project for this challenge. I have a large frame that I have been making seasonal inserts for and thought it was time I made one for St. Patty's Day.

I cut all the letters and tags out with my Cricut and the shamrock stickers and gold coins I picked up at the Dollar Store. I know they're not acid free so I'm hoping they don't ruin it. If they do, I can just make another one! lol

Snowball Fight

We are having a month long sketchathon over at Turtle Soup. There will be a new sketch just about every day this month. Today was my sketch reveal and I had a fantastic sketch to work with that was designed by our own Bev Code.

And here is my take on the sketch:

I pulled out some old snowflake stencils and used red and pink ink with them. Love how they turned out. I was thinking of doing a monochromatic layout but it just wasn't working so I decided to use the blue snowflake stickers and then added more blue with the flourishes and title. I really had fun with this sketch!

So if you like sketches come join us over at Turtle Soup for our March Sketchathon!
Hope to see you there!
