Well, if you have been over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, then you know this week’s new sketch is up!

I was playing around with some PinkFresh flower die cuts for my card!

The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is a new one from my card class a couple of weeks ago! It’s also from PinkFresh and is from the Simplest Gestures stamp set. A little twine and some enamel dots from Your Next Stamp finish off this card!

The DT has some really great projects this week to highlight this sketch (don’t they always though!). I hope you will stop by and give them some love!

Use Your Stuff # 427- Summer Fun

Hey there! So it’s been a very long time since I’ve joined in on a challenge for Use Your Stuff but I hope to be doing more of them!

This week’s challenge is Summer fun….anything really to do with summer! I’m sure many of us are enjoying the sunny days right now.

I created a fun card for a summer birthday!

I got this fun new die from Crafty Addicts and I really wanted to use it! I cut it out just in black cardstock and then placed some of the squares back in. I then added some fun Doodlebug stickers. The plaid paper is my go to from Lawn Fawn! The sentiment is from one of my SCT stamp sets. I really like this die and I think I will be using it a lot.

Come on over to the UYS blog, see what the DT has created and please play along with us!

A new DT position

Hey Everyone! I’m really excited to be sharing my first project as part of the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Design Team! Our challenges are always anything goes as long as you use a critter in your project and it has to be prominent! We want to see that little guy!

This month the DT are using digital images graciously supplied to us by Beccy’s Place!

I chose the image from the Odd Bods collection!

I decided to go with a lot of layers for this card. I used a couple of dies from my stash and the sentiment is from a stamp/die set that I received in a SCT sampler awhile back and I use it a lot!

I colored her with my copics and I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to her fur. I added some Nuevo dots as well. The paper is just some pieces from other projects and sitting in my stash box. I was lucky to have some nice big pieces still to use!

I hope you like it and will play along with us over on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create and don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

Fun with Gina K

Today’s Crop & Create Cards started off with a really fun class with Gina K of Gina K Designs. We learned some really great layered stenciling, which is not something that I do very much of, but definitely want to in the future.

I also really like the HELLO die cut that we received with our kit as well. I think that Gina said that this stamp set will be released a bit later on, so be sure to watch for it in her store!

Hey everyone!  Time to head over to the Christmas Craft Creations  blog and play along with this month’s challenge of Christmas Trees!  

It’s our mid month reminder, so you still have some time left to play along.  You can find the challenge here!

Here’s mine for you!

I decided to do a die cut scene card.  I found these dies when I was cleaning and realized that I hadn’t even used them yet!  I have no idea who they are by or where they even came from!

The hills were done with some glitter cardstock and my trusty Lawn Fawn stitched hillside border dies and the sentiment stamp is from Lawn Fawn as well.  I like how it turned out actually 🙂

So pop out those Christmas supplies and play along with us. Head over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you!

–Happy Crafting!

Hi Everyone! I’m sorry it has been awhile since I’ve posted. I lost my dad to Alzheimer’s on the 13th of this month and there has just been a lot going on in terms of settling everything during this whole Covid thing. It’s making it a lot harder.

I think I have the jist of it under control so I am excited to get back to crafting again.

So our new sketch is up and running at Tuesday Morning Sketches…It’s a great one and the Design Team has really gone to bat to create some wonderful inspiration pieces for you.

Here’s this week’s sketch!

This is what I put together for you!

The DP is stampin up as is the sentiment I believe. I used my CC Designs die for the pink oval to back the flowers….I am not sure who the flowers are by. The twine is just from my stash.

I hope this inspires you and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog and link up your creation!

Hey there!  Still with me….  Does this quarantine feel like it’s going on forever??  I must say though, I’ve done more crafting during this quarantine than I probably have done all last year! Nuts!

OK….our Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge is up!  Here it is!

This is a nice one!  Lots to work with!  I went pretty simple for mine and just used some scraps I had in my box and a sentiment from my jar.  The flower is just from a pack of die cuts that I opened up last week and had sitting on my desk.  There is nothing fancy about this card but I love the simplicity of it and it’s a perfect sketch for feminine/masculine and any occasion.  Make it your own!  Remember a sketch is a recipe not a rule book….

The Bike

Hello and Happy Sunday!  Oh my gosh!  We finally got some sunshine today after what seems like FOREVER of snow!  I cleaned my car, I made some salads to go with the BBQ chicken tonight and we brought out the deck furniture!  I was so happy to sit on my deck and enjoy the sunshine after being cooped up in the house for soooo long.  Our winter seemed to drag on forever!

I have a card today that I really like!  It reminds me of days like today…the weather is nice and everyone is out on their bike just trying to make the best of a bad situation.

I used some die cuts from the Jillybean Soup’s Spoonful of Soul collection and paired it with some left over hillside border dies from Lawn Fawn that I had from another project.

The cloud stencil is from Stampin Up and I had bought it awhile ago and hadn’t used it yet….so not surprised  **facepalm**  I found most of my stencils (38 of them) hadn’t been used yet!  I also added a few little heart stickers from Gossamer Blue’s Gramercy Road line (let’s blow the dust off to 2014 shall we! )

Also you may have noticed that the blog name has changed….this is to co-ordinate with the new instagram page that I started for my craft projects…it’s called if_the_scrap_fits  too.  Feel free to follow along on either platform.  I would love to have you 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon!

C4G #205 – Triangles

Hello from another wintery day in Calgary folks..yep another snowfall.  This is just nuts!

I am not ready to give up on fall yet, which is why I have an autumn-y card for you for the challenge this week at Cardz4Guyz..

It’s my challenge theme this week and it’s TRIANGLES!  Let’s get some of the three sided shapes on your projects to share!

For mine, I used some old Farmhouse paper from 2012 !  I made a triangle out of it and then matted it with some brown cardstock.  I added in a layer of leaves from my stash and a hello sentiment die from SU.  I also found some little triangle enamel shapes from Heidi Swapp that went really well with the paper.

Don’t forget to play along with us this challenge, can’t wait to see what you have to show us!

Hello Walt

Hello Monday Peeps!  Have you stopped by the UYS blog today? Our new challenge is up!  This week we are using triangles!

So I decided to go with a layout today because I really wanted to try a background die cut.  I came across this one from Bits and Pieces .   which I uploaded to my Cricut Explore Air and then cut out.   I thought it would be fun to do a Disney Layout and back the pieces with my Disney papers.  The actual diecut is called Shattered Glass but it has some fun triangle pieces to it.

dav

I used DP from Simple Stories & Echo Park, as well as their embellishments.  The sentiments are die cuts from Stampin Up and the internet.

I hope you like the layout and feel free to stop by the blog and play along with this week’s challenge!
