Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately. It’s been crazy in my house. Lots of home stuff going on, but here I am with the new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

So I’m a bit in the Christmas mood these days so I pulled out my Simple Stories Vintage Rustic Christmas papers and paired it with my Simple Stories Holly Jolly!

I added some green & red twine and a little bit of gold leafy die cuts! I think this turned out really really well. Come play along with us on the blog! The DT has created some awesome projects for you to check out!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Have a look on the Make the Cards Challenge blog…did you see our newest theme?

I know my friends south of us will be celebrating their Thanksgiving this month so it’s only fitting that our theme be thankful!

I’ve been playing with this Carta Bella autumn sticker book. I just love it, so I thought I would use some of the stickers along with some paper from Simple Stories’ Autumn Splendor!

I hope you like it, and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog!

We’re back with a new sketch on the TMS blog today! Check out the new one…..

Here’s mine!

I found this embossed panel first and I’ve had it for so long in my stash that I wanted to use it. I then went with some border stickers from Crate Paper’s Farm House collection. The sentiment is from a fun autumn sticker book by Carta Bella and the little owl is from Carta Bella as well. A simple but fun card.

Head on over to our blog and see the really great bird cards our team has for you this week and feel free to play along with us. What birds do you have to share???

See you on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

MTCC: Sketchy Challenge

Ohhh sketchy challenges 2 days in a row! Lucky you! This one is for Make the Cards Challenge this week.

Ok, this is what I did!

This looks like the Carta Bella collection from yesterday, but I don’t think it all is. Some may be though. I love the gold accents in this one with the sentiment and heart from my stash. I also love the vellum leaves that I added in there. A dainty little card. I hope you like it.

C’mon over to the MTCC blog and play along with us. The rest of the DT have some great projects for you to check out too!

Good Morning everyone! Welcome to this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches….ready? Here we go!

I had some fun with this one!

I was playing with the left over bits from a sampler that had been sitting on my desk. I think that this is Carta Bella Floral Market. I love this collection! It’s so pretty. I’m not sure if my big floral is part of the collection but it was in the same bag and so I fussy cut them out to make a focal point for this one. I just added some confetti from Studio Katia and enamel dots and big bold dots to finish it off.

I hope you enjoy the card and be sure to stop by the TMS blog for the great inspiration that the Design Team has come up with for this sketch! Be sure to play along!

Sorry it’s been awhile everyone. I’ve been so busy getting situated in my new job and then I took another part time job so not a whole lot of free time at the moment. I hope to settle into a routine soon and then squeeze in my crafting time on a regular basis!

Ok, so. New challenge at Use Your Stuff.theme is die cuts! I’d be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t have one or two die cuts of something in your stash…could be an image, a shape, a word sentiment ….

Now I was at a crop last month and I did a make and take with these gorgeous 3D die cuts! I’m using a autumn one but I did end up buying some Christmas ones to use on future projects. They are from Hearty Crafts and I just love them!

So the background is just some watercoloring with inks and then the sentiment is from my stash as well as the Nuevo Drops. That 3D die cut is fabulous isn’t it!

Now the DT has some great projects on the blog for you to check out and we want you to play along with us too! Show us what die cuts you have hanging around your desk right now and make something from it!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

It’s getting spooky on the Make the Cards Challenge blog today! Our new theme is up, and you guessed it —HALLOWEEN is what we are going with!

I was just using some bits and pieces from my Halloween box for this one. I knew I wanted to use that NEVERMORE tag as my focal point. So I just started grabbing bits and bobs that I thought would layer well for work with the card. I really like how this turned out!

The DT has put together some really great projects for you to see on the blog. They know how to do spooky right!

Stop by and play along with us…we can’t wait to see your spooky or cute projects

Ok folks, it’s a hop, skip and a jump over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog where you will find this week’s sketch to play with!

This is what I came up with

I dug into my die cut box for this one because I knew I had this banner from a previous project that would work well with this sketch. I used a PL card for my focal point and then just a few gold sequins to finish it off.

Be sure to head over to the blog and find out how the rest of the team did with this sketch!

Hope to see you on the blog playing along with us!

This is our new sketch on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog for you to play along with! It’s such an easy sketch and so easy to go from really simple to quite elaborate depending on your style.

I went somewhere in the middle….

I was making a flip book over the weekend using some simple stories, so I just used some of my left over pieces for this card. I thought it turned out quite cute for a holiday card. I decided to just round a couple of corners for the squares, just for a bit of added interest on it.

Be sure to head over to the blog and see the great stuff that the DT has for you!
