I needed to do a schwack of birthday cards for a group that I am in, and I knew I wanted to use these square 5×5 card bases I found at the thrift store I work at. I got 15 of them for 1.50.
I found a great sketch on the Mojo Monday website
It was pretty simple and easy to mass produce. Here’s what I came up with!
I just pulled some papers out of my scrap box and the flowers you have seen before many times. I used a sentiment from a set I bought with Craft Creations Too and then added some little crystals from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. This collection was called Glamorous. Some of them also have some tiny Heidi Swapp flowered gems on them. I really love how these turned out.
This sketch is pretty layer heavy which for me is great because I love layers.
I have a big box of loose papers, some that are mine, and some that I got from swaps and such. I really wanted to start getting this box down, so I used some papers for this challenge. I don’t know where they are from as I think I got them in a swap.
I made two cards, basically the same but with a slight variation. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along!
So ya, it’s been awhile. I’m sorry about that. Just so much going on at home that I’ve not had much crafting time lately. However, I’m trying to change that so I’ve been earmarking some time for myself to play in my craft area.
It’s been a long time, but I decided to play along with Mojo Monday’s sketch this week.
Here’s my take using the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection. I also used a doily from my stash and just some sticker letters I picked up at the dollar store. I finally managed to use this line up…I’ve had it for what seems like forever so I really wanted to use it up. I will be posting some more projects that I made with it later on.
Here’s the sketch
and here’s my card
Make sure you stop by their blog and play along this week!
I am trying to get Christmas cards done for my craft fairs which are coming up in November. I really liked the sketch that Mojo Monday had this week so I decided to play with that one!
Here is my card!
I have been challenging myself to use the mounds of items all over my craft desk this week! I have a Jovial card kit from Basic Grey as well as a bunch of random stamp sets so I used them for this card. I think those penguins are adorable. The embossed background was another sheet I had lying around so decided to use that as well. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with Mojo Monday to get the creative juices flowing!
