I’m bringing you our latest sketch from the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

I think with this one, you could either make your frame like I did with washi or paper strips, or maybe you might have a die that is similar and can do it for you! I know you will want to check out the blog because the DT has some great ideas on how to do the borders!

I am playing with another card kit. I got this one from Scrap Shotz at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival back in April (and I’m just now getting to it). I’ll be posting the cards I made from it at a later date, but I’m down to my last few pieces of DP. I just used some gold glitter paper for my border and a sentiment stamp from my stash. The flowers are also from my stash as well. It’s not real fancy but I like the gold accents. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the DP has gold in it as well.

Be sure to stop by the blog to play along with us ok! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Coming to you live! No not really, this post was prepared yesterday! LOL

Today is Tuesday and you know what that means! Tuesday Morning Sketches is up and running with this week’s hot sketch!

Take a look!

Not gonna lie, this is a perfect sketch for scraps! Especially if they vary in color! This is easy to mass produce and takes no time at all.

So my friend gifted me that Annie’s Attic card kit that I highlighted a card from yesterday, remember? Well here’s another one. For this one, I used my own sentiment and a couple of crystal dots but everything else came from the kit! I love how it co-ordinates!

Now the Design Team has amazing projects for you this week, as always right! Head on over to the blog to play along and also to leave them some love. I challenge you to use just some little scraps from your craft table left over from a previous project, or if you are like me, you have a box with some paper scraps in it. Pick out some paper and build your card around that! I can’t wait to see what you do with this sketch!

Happy Monday everyone! Monday, is it ever really happy??? LOL

So on the Use Your Stuff blog today we have an Anything Goes challenge! Who doesn’t love that! We just want to see what you are working on this week.

For me, my BFF gave me one of those Annie’s Attic card kits (she got two in error). I hadn’t used them before so it was fun to give it a try. They give you a lot of stuff in the bag including paper, stencil, stamp, ink, some enamel dots and a bunch of die cuts and then the instructions to make 3 cards. I’m guessing that since they give you 2 sheets of the die cuts, you can make 2 of each card. This one was very red, white and blue! I decided to just make the 3 with the instructions and then use the rest of the supplies for a bunch more cards. I ended up getting a baker’s dozen out of the kit and I still have a bunch of the enamel dots and a shwack of the die cuts left. I really like the projects though! I needed to make birthday cards and since most of them were going to the USA it kinda worked out.

Here’s one from the batch!

The sentiment and the card base were mine but pretty much everything else was in the kit. I decided to use some of my clear bling rather than the red and blue enamel dots on this one. This was actually the last card that I made with just some scraps that I had left over.

If you want to see all the cards I made with it, pop on over to my instagram page: if_the _scrap_fits and you can see them all there.

I hope you will stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT have for you.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Hey there, thanks for stopping by today! Let’s check out the new sketch up at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This is a great sketch for mass producing cards and it really appeals to my love of layers!

Now I totally built this card just using some items already on my desk. The DP was sent to me with a card that I got recently. Just two double sided sheets which worked perfect for this. I also had some scraps of black for the mats. The sentiment I had just bought online and cracked it open for this card, and I really like it. I think that’s gonna be on a lot of upcoming cards. The stamp set, another item on my desk is from Stampin Up. I was searching through some piles of die cuts and I thought this was a perfect size for that square. Finally to top it off, some confetti that was loose from another project.

All in all, I think it took maybe less than 10 mins to make this card. So with a great sketch to start off with and like 5 or less supplies….voila…a nice card to send to a friend!

So now that you’ve seen what I’ve done with the sketch, head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for you to be inspired by!

Here we go folks, this week’s challenge is up and ready to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Ok, a great sketch for you to play along with!

Since we are heading into St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to dip into my green bin and came up with this little card. I used some scraps of green and I added some stickers. For the main sentiment, I put the sticker onto some black cardstock and then popped it up with pop dots.

Head on over to the blog and see the great DT projects to inspire you and don’t forget to play along with us!

#477 Use Your Stuff

Hey there! Our first challenge for February is up at Use Your Stuff and in honor of my birthday on the 11th, the theme is numbers!

Not sure why I went with a Halloween project, maybe it’s because I was getting bug-eyed creating birthday cards for a group I’m in and needed a change! I just used bits and bobs from my Halloween box for my ATC so nothing really to link to on this one! ATC’s are a great way to use up those little pieces of whatever may be on your desk and a great way to practice your layering as well!

Head on over to the UYS blog and play along with us! Don’t forget to leave some love for the DT!

It’s getting spooky on the Make the Cards Challenge blog today! Our new theme is up, and you guessed it —HALLOWEEN is what we are going with!

I was just using some bits and pieces from my Halloween box for this one. I knew I wanted to use that NEVERMORE tag as my focal point. So I just started grabbing bits and bobs that I thought would layer well for work with the card. I really like how this turned out!

The DT has put together some really great projects for you to see on the blog. They know how to do spooky right!

Stop by and play along with us…we can’t wait to see your spooky or cute projects

Hello all! It’s Tuesday Tuesday. Skip on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and you will find this week’s awesome sketch to play along with!

A great, fun sketch and easy to play along with.

Still playing with my October 2019 SCT sampler, I used papers from the Pebbles This is Family Collection. I also used the puffy sentiment sticker that came in my sample and I added some gold enamel dots from my collection. The flowers I’m sure you recognize from earlier cards. I had a lot of these flowers printed off and they make great focal points for cards!

Be sure to stop by our blog and see the rest of the great cards from the design team using this week’s sketch and I hope you will play along with us too!

Sorry everyone! My mom is getting knee surgery this week so I’m behind as we get ready for that!

We put a new sketch up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and it is my fave sketch being highlighted this week!

Here is what I have for you today!

I was working on some layouts over the last week so these are just some scraps left over from that. It was from the June 2019 SCT sampler I believe. The sentiment is from Gina K.

This is a great sketch for using up some scraps that you just aren’t ready to throw out and think you can make one more card from!

Head on over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT has for you ! Come play along with us!.
