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!
Our new monthly challenge is up at Brown Sugar Challenges. Our theme is Breast Cancer Awareness. I know last month was the actual month for this, but we are extending it one more month because it is such an important issue.
For my card I just chose to create a Christmas card but kept the pink theme for BCA.
I colored the image with my copics. The DP is from Snow Day by Crate Paper and the PEACE sentiment is from Stampin Up., I added a few sequins and a few little pearl dots from Nuvo. I hope you like it and please play along with us this month! Remember you can use anything that makes you think of BCA – the color pink, the ribbon symbol, perhaps it is an image that you found to help a friend or loved one as they battle this terrible disease.

Both companies have amazing digitals to use you can’t go wrong with either one!
This week I am using a digital stamp from Bugaboo!
This is a fabulous birthday cake stamp is handy to use for a quick birthday card and just some scraps from your basket. This week I am pairing my anything goes theme at Penny’s with the Mojo Monday sketch. Again, a really great sketch that you can use with scraps and just knock out a quick and fun card!
I just used some pieces from my scrap bucket (I even found some teal burlap in there to match my paper). I colored the image just using my Sharpies this week and I added some stickles to every other layer, to bring in the sparkle from the chevron multi colored paper. I also used my spellbinders to die cut.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out the blog for the other great projects from the DT and to play along with our anything goes challenge (it couldn’t be easier!).

Here is the card I created using a fun summer image from Bugaboo!
How fun is this guy! I paired him up with the Summer Fun collection from Fancy pants that I have been trying to use up, so it worked perfectly! I colored him with my copics and then cut him out. It’s really hard to tell from the picture but his cool shades and his floaty both have some glossy accents!
