Hello all!

I’m here with today’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is a great sketch if you like shaker cards or just doing an image on top of an image.

For my card I used a fun die set from LDRS Creative. I got this as part of my Crop & Create Cardmaking online class that I did this past weekend, hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. We also were given a fun matching stamp set as well. I used some paper from my stash to go with this. The background under the sentiment was ink blended with a variety of inks from Stampin Up, Kraftin Kimmie and Lawn Fawn.

I also added a couple of clear Nuevo dots to it.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to head over to the blog to play along and also to see the rest of the great creations from the DT!

Yikes! Sorry this is late everyone! I didn’t even realize I had the date wrong in the scheduling.

You still have time to get in on this week’s sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Patti is highlighting her favorite this week!

Here is my card from last year!

Looks like I was playing with some lawn fawn and a new rainbow die that I just got, I believe from an online card class!

This is my new one!

Yep, you guessed it! That’s Doodlebug right there….Using my December 2019 SCT sampler pieces!

Now head on over to the blog and see the great projects from the DT!

TMS # 639 Debbie’s Favorite

Another favorite sketch of mine is up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog! I think this is such a great one!

I used up the last little bit of my May SCT 2019 Sampler for this card. I only had a few bits of paper left (although a lot of embellishments). It’s the Kaleidoscope collection by Vicki Boutin for American Crafts.

It’s a pretty bold pattern on the right, so I paired it with a more subtle solid on the left. The flower is from the collection as are the leaves. I added a Paper Smooches sentiment and just a few bling from my stash.

A simple card, but perfect to say hello to a friend! Come on over to the blog and see how the rest of the DT made this sketch work this time around!

Last time, I did another Doodlebug card! With I’m sure some items from a Sampler! LOL

UYS/ Double Trouble Collaboration

Hi all!

We are a week early with the Use Your Stuff challenge as we are collaborating with Double Trouble Challenges as well! Our theme at Use Your Stuff is Fall/Autumn and it falls right in line with their challenges, so if you are entering ours, be sure to enter theirs too!

This is a card that I created as part of my Crop & Create Cardmaking weekend hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine. The leaves and pumpkin are dies from Simon Says Stamp and I created them using some tear tape from ThermoWeb and some glitter. I covered the cardstock with the tear tap and then spread the glitter on it and then die cut! I can’t even remember the last time I used glitter. I used a leafy embossing folder from I believe Cuttlebug and then just some enamel dots from my stash. The THANKS sentiment die is a tried and true one from I believe Scrapbook.com and you have seen me use it many times before.

We hope to see you play along with both Use Your Stuff and Double Trouble for this challenge!

If you have been over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, you will see that our new sketch is up for you to enjoy!

I really like this one.

Here is my card!

This is from the My Mind’s Eye Splendor Collection, a part of the February 2018 SCT sampler. I really love this collection. The sentiment was from an early sampler, and one that I use often.

I cut out some of the flowers from one of the sheets to use for my embellishment and then added some black Nuvo drops as well.

Be sure to stop by the blog and leave some love for the rest of the DT as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!

WCD 2017 Week 3

Here we are on week 3 from the 2017 World Cardmaking Day Online Class with Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.

I went with the inspiration from Cathy Zielske’s card for mine.

This was Cathy’s card

This is the one that I made

I used the Vicki Boutin Wildflower and Honey collection from my August 2017 SCT Sampler. I used a Mama Elephant sentiment on the focal point, which I cut out of a 3×4 card. I also added a little Nuvo drops .

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

WCD 2017

So I’m super behind on this class for World Cardmaking Day 2017 from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine.

I am determined to finish it this week! There are 6 cards to be made and I”m done 2! Woohoo

This is the second card. I chose to go with Nicole Nowasad’s example and tweaked it a little bit.

I used the Photoplay Paper O Canada collection. I have the paper pack, embellishments as well as the stamp/die set.

I stamped, cut and colored the beaver, the heart and the sentiment out, as well as die cut the maple leaves. This is a 4.25 x 4.25 card.

Entered into these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp: Add a Sentiment

Aud Sentiments Challenge: Anything goes with a Sentiment

Allison Davis 6×6 Paper Class

OK…

So I’ve done up to week 6 of Allison Davis’ 6×6 Paper Class, which for me is pretty significant. LOL Going by past experience, I’ve bought lots of classes and not even started them yet.

Here is week #4

I did this while vacationing at the farm, so I think that this is using one of my samplers. I’m not sure which one it was. I didn’t have a lot of embellishments with this one left so I like to cut out parts of the papers to use as embellies.

Week #5

This is week #5 using the O Canada collection from Photoplay Paper. Now for this one, I decided to use full sheets of paper and cut them down to the 6×6 size because I really wanted to use this paper line for these pictures. I used embellishments from the collection on this and some of my own mini alphas and thickers.

And finally sketch #6

I like this sketch and it is using the February SCT sampler from 2018 and the My Mind’s Eye Splendor Collection and probably some of the Color Fresh collection from Heidi Swapp in the same sampler.

I love these samplers, and look, you can do some great layouts with just the few pieces that you get in the sampler. I added some of my own embellishments and my own thickers, but I am a big fan of using some of the papers to cut out the images and use them as embellishments as well.

Well I’m back in town and I got a lot done in terms of scrapbooking while at the farm. About 3 layouts and 9 cards which is the most I’ve worked on in awhile! Most of these you will see in upcoming posts once I get them photographed.

On to this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I really liked this sketch! I used one of the SCT samplers I took with me and created this fun Christmas in July card. I belive this one is from the Pinkfresh Holiday Vibes collection which was in the December 2018 sampler.

I had limited supplies at the farm so I created this card using just the papers that were in the sampler and then some enamel dots! I cut out the little houses from a sheet of the paper and also the sentiment was a paper as well. I think it turned out really well.

Head on over to the blog and see how the rest of the DT has created with this sketch this week!

2018 …that’s a wrap ( I think)

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!
