I’m bringing you our latest sketch from the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

I think with this one, you could either make your frame like I did with washi or paper strips, or maybe you might have a die that is similar and can do it for you! I know you will want to check out the blog because the DT has some great ideas on how to do the borders!

I am playing with another card kit. I got this one from Scrap Shotz at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival back in April (and I’m just now getting to it). I’ll be posting the cards I made from it at a later date, but I’m down to my last few pieces of DP. I just used some gold glitter paper for my border and a sentiment stamp from my stash. The flowers are also from my stash as well. It’s not real fancy but I like the gold accents. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the DP has gold in it as well.

Be sure to stop by the blog to play along with us ok! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Coming to you live! No not really, this post was prepared yesterday! LOL

Today is Tuesday and you know what that means! Tuesday Morning Sketches is up and running with this week’s hot sketch!

Take a look!

Not gonna lie, this is a perfect sketch for scraps! Especially if they vary in color! This is easy to mass produce and takes no time at all.

So my friend gifted me that Annie’s Attic card kit that I highlighted a card from yesterday, remember? Well here’s another one. For this one, I used my own sentiment and a couple of crystal dots but everything else came from the kit! I love how it co-ordinates!

Now the Design Team has amazing projects for you this week, as always right! Head on over to the blog to play along and also to leave them some love. I challenge you to use just some little scraps from your craft table left over from a previous project, or if you are like me, you have a box with some paper scraps in it. Pick out some paper and build your card around that! I can’t wait to see what you do with this sketch!

Happy Monday everyone! Monday, is it ever really happy??? LOL

So on the Use Your Stuff blog today we have an Anything Goes challenge! Who doesn’t love that! We just want to see what you are working on this week.

For me, my BFF gave me one of those Annie’s Attic card kits (she got two in error). I hadn’t used them before so it was fun to give it a try. They give you a lot of stuff in the bag including paper, stencil, stamp, ink, some enamel dots and a bunch of die cuts and then the instructions to make 3 cards. I’m guessing that since they give you 2 sheets of the die cuts, you can make 2 of each card. This one was very red, white and blue! I decided to just make the 3 with the instructions and then use the rest of the supplies for a bunch more cards. I ended up getting a baker’s dozen out of the kit and I still have a bunch of the enamel dots and a shwack of the die cuts left. I really like the projects though! I needed to make birthday cards and since most of them were going to the USA it kinda worked out.

Here’s one from the batch!

The sentiment and the card base were mine but pretty much everything else was in the kit. I decided to use some of my clear bling rather than the red and blue enamel dots on this one. This was actually the last card that I made with just some scraps that I had left over.

If you want to see all the cards I made with it, pop on over to my instagram page: if_the _scrap_fits and you can see them all there.

I hope you will stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT have for you.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Here we go folks….new week, new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Great sketch right? I think this is one of my faves so far this year!

Here’s my card!

We all know I love Doodlebug! This is the Christmas Magic line from the 2019 December SCT sampler. I love the patterns in this. The stamp is just one that I had laying around. I hope you enjoy the card and don’t forget to skip on over the the TMS blog to see the rest of the DT creations!

Have a great day everyone!


Hello Friends!

Check out this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Its a really great sketch to play with!

I used some paper from a hot buy paper pack from Michaels. I’ve never used it so it’s fun to crack it open! The sentiment was from Lawn Fawn. I added a few sequins and the cut aparts from the paper pack.

Head on over to the TMS blog and see the other great projects. Be sure to play along with us as well!

Hey folks! I’m a bit behind the ball. Our new challenge went up at Tuesday Morning Sketches yesterday! Check it out!

I haven’t done a lot of shaker cards lately, so I thought that I would go for one on this card! I don’t have any arch dies, so this was as close as I could get. Great thing about sketches are that they are a jumping off point. Sometimes you have to adjust according to your vision, or in my case supplies!

I just used some stash stuff for this one. I like the colors! I hope that you will stop by the blog today and check out what the rest of the team has created for you! Some really great projects!

Thanks for hanging out with me today!

Hey there, thanks for stopping by today! Let’s check out the new sketch up at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is a great sketch for mass producing cards and it really appeals to my love of layers!

Now I totally built this card just using some items already on my desk. The DP was sent to me with a card that I got recently. Just two double sided sheets which worked perfect for this. I also had some scraps of black for the mats. The sentiment I had just bought online and cracked it open for this card, and I really like it. I think that’s gonna be on a lot of upcoming cards. The stamp set, another item on my desk is from Stampin Up. I was searching through some piles of die cuts and I thought this was a perfect size for that square. Finally to top it off, some confetti that was loose from another project.

All in all, I think it took maybe less than 10 mins to make this card. So with a great sketch to start off with and like 5 or less supplies….voila…a nice card to send to a friend!

So now that you’ve seen what I’ve done with the sketch, head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for you to be inspired by!

Hey everyone, this didn’t post when I needed it to, so I’m doing it now. Tuesday Morning Sketches

is partnering up! You still have time to get in on our collaboration with Double Trouble Challenges!

Please visit their blog for all the details. But if you’d like to play along, be sure to follow the theme of ROYGBIV – use traditional rainbow colors or change them up to pastels for Easter cards, then add in our sketch with your project for the extra challenge. Our challenge will run for two weeks so you have until 4/16 to play along with both challenges!

Here is the sketch for our portion of the challenge!

Here’s mine folks!

I used some paper from Your Next Stamp Birthday Girl set and the sentiment die is from my stash! Be sure to play along with both challenges!

Here we go folks, this week’s challenge is up and ready to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Ok, a great sketch for you to play along with!

Since we are heading into St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to dip into my green bin and came up with this little card. I used some scraps of green and I added some stickers. For the main sentiment, I put the sticker onto some black cardstock and then popped it up with pop dots.

Head on over to the blog and see the great DT projects to inspire you and don’t forget to play along with us!
