I decided to go with a different orientation for my card than the sketch! I’ve been playing with some new dies that I’ve had sitting on my desk for awhile. I believe the FRIEND is from one of my SCT samplers. The butterfly one I got recently and honestly, I thought it cut the butterflies out openly but I’m kinda glad it doesn’t. This gives you the option of leaving them closed or adjusting the wings a little bit.
The paper is just a plaid from Lawn Fawn and then the little iridescent confetti is Studio Katia. I decided to use some ribbon from my desk instead of the banner for the middle to anchor my sentiment. I’m loving this black embossed background and then these soft subtle colors.
Ok, now it’s your turn. Head over to the blog, play along with our challenge and be sure to check out the projects from the DT.
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
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!
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 .
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.
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!
