A scrappy Card

Hey there, just wanted to show you a quick card that I made with some of the scraps from the layout for SCT.  I love using up scraps..I will try to make as many cards as I can with whatever papers I have left over!  Right down to the last scrap! LOL

This one was also fun, because I got to play with some of my embossing folders again…another tool that I’ve not used in awhile!


I hope you like it!


The Music Moves Me

Hello one and all! I have a new layout for you today to go along with our new challenge up at Use Your Stuff!  This week’s theme is border punches!

I’ve not been using mine regularly so it was nice to pull them out and play a bit.

My layout today is also the March Scrapbook & Cards Today 365 2018  class.  I must say, now that I have committed to doing these classes, I have been finding my love for scrapbooking again, and it’s a nice change from doing cards all the time.


For this layout I pulled out a kit that I had created several months ago for a crop and just never got around to using.  The papers are from Everyday Circus by Fancy Pants, as well as some Simple Stories and Heidi Swapp mixed in.  My border punch is EK Success (and I had to practically blow the dust off of it!.)

The embellishments stars are cut from the DP and I also used a few embellishement and die cut pieces from October Afternoon’s Saspirilla collection (I’ve been holding onto these for awhile now), and some recollections word chipboard as well as some Recollection word stickers.  The washi tape is just from my stash.

I hope you will play along with us on the blog! Can’t wait to see what you create!

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!

Hello, hello hello! Monday already?  Challenge day at Use Your Stuff, but you knew that right?? 🙂

Back to school is in full swing now and so that is this week’s Challenge!  We want to see some of your wonderful BTS creations.

I am happy to be getting back into layouts again.  I had forgotten how much I missed doing them.  My project this week is a layout using a Sketch from Creative Scrappers.  I have one of her AWESOME sketchbooks (Volume 1)  that I got a couple of years ago and is my go to, when I need to get started.  The sketches on her site are fabulous and such a variety!



Everything is from my stash…..The DP is from October Afternoon & Fancy Pants.  I also used a bunch of bits and bobs from my stash and the wooden stars I just inked up with some ink for color.  The crayon diecut is from Simply Charmed.  The lettering is thickers.  I hope you enjoy it and play along with us at UYS this week.

Best Teacher

Hello everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I’ve written.  I’ve had to deal with a family emergency for the last month but everything is working out now.


If you hope over to the Digital Delights blog then you will see we have a bunch of new inspiration pieces for you.  I have this great card for you.



With everyone getting back to school I thought that this would be a fun card to make to celebrate.  My little guy is starting preschool next week and I am so excited.

I used the Chillin’ Out Bookyworm and the Best Ever Teacher sentiment.

I used the Back to School paper from Fancy Pants.  All the little embellishments are from my stash.   Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the other great projects the DT has for you this week.

All About School: UIT challenge

Hello! I know it has been a dry spell on my blog.  My mom had emergency brain surgery at the end of July and I went to BC to help with things for the first couple of weeks while she started her recovery.  She is one lucky lady, lucky to be alive and she is starting the long road to recovery.  She has very little damage from the aneurysm or the surgery so that is really great!

I have been trying to play catch up this week as I have a bunch of projects that I will be showing you over the next couple of weeks, although I leave to go on my holidays August 19-29th.  Camping! Cannot wait!  Thank goodness for autoposting!


On to this weeks Use it Tuesday challenge…..ALL ABOUT SCHOOL!  The start of school is fast approaching which of course signals that summer will soon be over.  My little guy Riley starts preschool this year so I am excited and apprehensive at the same time.  Its a big thing right??? 🙂

I have a fun little card for you today.


Everything on this card is from my stash this week, nothing is new.  The paper pack is from Fancy Pants and is called Off to School.  I found a big shoebox full of ephemera which is where that flash card came from so I am not sure who makes it. The stars were cut out using an Epiphany Crafts punch that I won in a prize pack last year I think!  I believe I’ve only ever used it once before and it’s been awhile! It is a great tool and I think I need to use it more often! I also won a circle one too which I have not used yet.  The ribbon, twine and notebook punch are all from my stash.  I’ve not used them in awhile either.  I don’t think I’ve ever used that ribbon! I don’t even know where it came from..LOL

I hope you enjoyed my card and make sure you stop by the Use it Tuesday blog to see the other great projects the DT has for you this week and to enter the challenge!

Be sure to tell us in your post what you used!  Don’t forget, you have to use your hoarded supplies for each of our challenges and let us know what it was!

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge

Now GO USE IT! and I am looking forward to stopping by your blogs to comment! 🙂

Happy Crafting everyone!

Ribbon Rave Week 4 Layout

Okay..I don’t know how I feel about this layout yet.  I don’t LOVE it but who knows.   I guess you have to post the good and the bad right..otherwise how can you tell if you’ve grown and progressed.  Anyway..the challenge this week was the Power of 3.  3 photos, 3 different embellishments, 3 diff patterened paper, 3 ribbons.  The ribbon challenge was to weave ribbon into your layout.

I found it hard to even find 3 pics that I liked.  I don’t even know where I dug these ones up, I only know that they are old!  I don’t have a lot of pics of me.  I really should change that at some point.


PP: Fancy Pants, Chatterbox

Word Plate: Tim Holtz

Buttons: from my stash

Clip: from my stash

Ribbon: Savvy N Sassy

Letter Stickers: unknown

Leave me your comments..let me know if you like it or if there is something that you would change…
