Ok so many of you know that I am a big fan of the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine SCT Samplers. Each month you get a little bit of happiness in an envelope with some of the latest and greatest from some of your favorite companies. Slowly but surely, I have been trying to work my way through. I first started in 2018 and here we are in 2021 …one each month, you can imagine how many are in my drawer!
I think I finally used up the last one from 2018! The August collection gave us treats from Pebbles -My Bright Life collection as well as Amy Tangerine’s Shine On Collection. It also had some Kelly Creates stamps, some AC rhinestones and an awesome slick writer from Scrapbook.com. As you can tell by these names, no slouches right?!
These are the cards that I created for a swap on Swap-Bot.com that I am doing and I paired it with this month’s sheetload of cards from Call Me Crafty Al. I added in some enamel dots from my stash as well a punch for some of the leafy bits.
I’ve added the links below to get this great sketch from Call me Crafty Al, as well as a link to the SCT Sampler both of which really you should look into! There is some amazing stuff in each month’s sunshine of happiness subscription and some of the very best sketches for mass producing cards to build your stash!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am doing the SCT Online Crop & Create Cardmaking event this weekend, so expect a lot of posts with some of the great projects we are doing!
I didn’t want to do a flower for my card, and that’s the great thing about a sketch..you can interpret it the way that you want that fits your style. I’ve had this Doodlebug Doodlepop sitting on my desk forever and I finally wanted to use it!
So I pulled out some random coffee papers from my stash…i think there is mostly Echo Park and some Stampin Up in there. I added the doodlepops and then the sentiment is from Ink Road Stamps
Head on over to the blog and see what the other DT have created. Don’t forget to leave them some love!
This is what they gave us to work with and the challenge is to use any three on your project!
Here’s my card, using this month’s Sheetload of Cards from Call Me Crafty Al. You can find the link here, to see how you too can get these really fun monthly sketches!
Here is my card!
I managed to incorporate quite a few of the suggestions in this card! I used some pieces from my October 2018 SCT Sampler…
The DP is from Bella Blvd’s Sweet & Spooky Collection (flowers and polkadots). The stamped image (green) and sentiment (friendship sentiment) is from Stampin Up as are the inks. I did emboss the sentiment using some Stampendous embossing powder (embossing). The die cut is also from Stampin up and the vellum is my last of the Doodlebug! (I got a lot of projects out of that 12×12 sheet!). To finish it off, just some bling from my stash (sparkle).
If you want a fun challenge the Festive Friday blog has some great ones and this one is open until the 30th.
