Sorry for the late posting today! My son got braces yesterday and they are really causing him some problems so I’ve been trying to get him sorted with that.

OK…new week, new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches! It’s Melissa’s turn and this is her sketch!

This was my card last year:

Today I have this one!

I used some papers from XOXO and My Funny Valentine from American Crafts. I used a fun sticker from Recollections. I added some enamel dots from my stash to finish it off.

Be sure to stop by the blog to see all the great projects that the team has for you.

Hello you! Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

Debi is up next with her favorite sketch from the last year

My card from last year looked like this

For this new challenge I combined it with with a challenge I was doing for Splitcoast Stampers… I had to create a card A is for ……..

I was fishing around in my Cricut for a die cut for something else can came across this little guy! He’s an Axylotl and I thought he was adorable and makes me smile.

So that’s me for today! Head on over to the TMS blog and see the awesome cards that the rest of the team came up with for you!

TMS # 639 Debbie’s Favorite

Another favorite sketch of mine is up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog! I think this is such a great one!

I used up the last little bit of my May SCT 2019 Sampler for this card. I only had a few bits of paper left (although a lot of embellishments). It’s the Kaleidoscope collection by Vicki Boutin for American Crafts.

It’s a pretty bold pattern on the right, so I paired it with a more subtle solid on the left. The flower is from the collection as are the leaves. I added a Paper Smooches sentiment and just a few bling from my stash.

A simple card, but perfect to say hello to a friend! Come on over to the blog and see how the rest of the DT made this sketch work this time around!

Last time, I did another Doodlebug card! With I’m sure some items from a Sampler! LOL

UYS #439 Inspired by Disney

Hello one and all! I am here with our first new challenge of 2022 for Use Your Stuff. Our theme is Inspired by Disney. It might be an actual trip to the Magic Kingdom, the colors of Disney, a Character that you love…..

For me, I’m sharing a page out of my Disney Album for our 2018 trip to California. I’m still not done, not even close, but it’s coming along slowly but surely.

We can’t wait to see what you create. Head on over to the blog and see the awesome projects! We have 3 new DT members who will be introduced to everyone a little later in the week!

Happy New Year one and all!

Well, looks like this is my first post of the 2022 year! I’m hoping that there will be a lot more this year then last. I’ve stepped down from a few of my DTs as these last few months were having me feel overwhelmed. I’m hoping to play a lot of catch up this year with various subscriptions, classes, challenges etc (I’m sure that I say that every year but I’m really going to try and do more for me!)

That being said, here is my first DT assignment for 2022! Our new challenge is up and as per usual, we are highlighting the Design Team’s favorite sketches over the last year.

We are highlighting Andrea’s favorite out the gate! Sketch #612

This is a favorite of mine as well. A simple sketch that is great with some scraps and a fun focal point.

So, using up the last little bit of Doodlebug from my latest card class I created this fun winter birthday card. I did have to add in just a bit of Photoplay Paper for the inner circle as I didn’t have a piece of DB that would fit. This stamp and die set is called Deck the Halls and I think it might be an exclusive set that we got for the class (designed by the ever talented Vicki Boutin).

Funny thing, when this sketch first was posted, I used Doodlebug Hello Spring collection for my card that week! Who knew!

I hope that you will head over to the blog to play along with our sketch this week and to check out the great projects the DT has for you as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

TMS #637 Anything Goes!

Hey ! Can you believe we are in Christmas week??? Holy hannah! Are you getting excited? I know I am.

We have a special challenge for you this go round.

ANNUAL ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!

With it being the last 2 weeks of the year, my amazing team uses this time for a much needed break to get themselves ready for the Christmas and New Year holidays, spend time with their families and recharge their creative batteries.

There are rules to this challenge, though…

1.  Your project must be new, no back linking.

2.  Your project must be PG rated.

3.  It is anything goes, but must be crafty related.  Feel free to share a crocheted/knitted project, other paper craft, mixed media, art journal, even planner pages you’re particularly proud of.

4.  You may enter as many times as you’d like!We do have a prize, as usual.  This year I’m giving a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!

I’m sharing with you another card that I created during a Photoplay card class that I took recently. Firstly I love this line of paper and embellishments, and secondly I’m just amazed at how easy it is to put together a fun card using only paper, stickers and some dimension adhesive! We all know I love layers and these stickers and some embossing just makes for some great interest .

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. From my house to yours, Happy Holidays and all the best for the new year!

CCC: December

Hello! Today I bring you my final card as part of the Christmas Craft Creations Design Team. I have had such a wonderful time over the last couple of years being a part of this wonderful group of designers and I am going to miss them.

Our December challenge is in full swing and the theme is MAKE A SCENE! This is a fun challenge and so easy to do~

I did the PhotoPlay line Not a Creature was Stirring and as in yesterday’s post, it was so fun creating with just paper and stickers!

Looks like Santa was doing some holiday shopping in the city! The DT has some great projects to inspire you and so I hope you will stop by the blog and see what they have created and we can’t wait to see your own projects!

Merry Christmas everyone!

TMS #636

Hey Everyone! I know that it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. It’s just been crazy and I just haven’t had much time for crafting.

Today I have our new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and a pretty Christmas Card to share with you.

I really like this sketch! I only used 2 pieces of 6×6 paper but if you had one sheet that would totally work. I love the grey and white look of this. The cheer and the bow are from my stash but I think they are Pink Paislee. The DP is just from Michaels but it’s just so pretty!

I hope you like it and be sure to play along with us over on the blog! The rest of the DT has some amazing projects too!

Dragonfly Dreams: December

Hi everyone! Our new challenge for Dragonfly Dreams is up and it’s a lovely anything goes challenge! Show us what you are working on right now!

For my card today, I’m sharing one that I just recently made during my Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine’s Crop & Create Cardmaking event. Our host was Meghann Andrew and she designed this fun card.

This is such a simple but fabulous card that you can create using any color pallet that you want!

The stamp set is from Elle’s Studio and it’s Sincere Sentiments : Wonderful You.

This one is a rainbow card using those fun stars and that bold YOU sentiment! I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

2 Old Bats December Challenge

Hey Everyone, here is this month’s inspiration for the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge. I’m sure many of you are making Christmas cards but hey, give them a break and go for Halloween instead!

Here is mine!

I used some gold foil and ran it through the embossing folder. The die cut bats are from my stash and the sentiment is from my stash as well.

Be sure to swing by the blog and see what the DT has for you this month. We also have a prize if we get at least 50 entrants!
