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

Happy New Year one and all!

Well, looks like this is my first post of the 2022 year! I’m hoping that there will be a lot more this year then last. I’ve stepped down from a few of my DTs as these last few months were having me feel overwhelmed. I’m hoping to play a lot of catch up this year with various subscriptions, classes, challenges etc (I’m sure that I say that every year but I’m really going to try and do more for me!)

That being said, here is my first DT assignment for 2022! Our new challenge is up and as per usual, we are highlighting the Design Team’s favorite sketches over the last year.

We are highlighting Andrea’s favorite out the gate! Sketch #612

This is a favorite of mine as well. A simple sketch that is great with some scraps and a fun focal point.

So, using up the last little bit of Doodlebug from my latest card class I created this fun winter birthday card. I did have to add in just a bit of Photoplay Paper for the inner circle as I didn’t have a piece of DB that would fit. This stamp and die set is called Deck the Halls and I think it might be an exclusive set that we got for the class (designed by the ever talented Vicki Boutin).

Funny thing, when this sketch first was posted, I used Doodlebug Hello Spring collection for my card that week! Who knew!

I hope that you will head over to the blog to play along with our sketch this week and to check out the great projects the DT has for you as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Everyone! I know that it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. It’s just been crazy and I just haven’t had much time for crafting.

Today I have our new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and a pretty Christmas Card to share with you.

I really like this sketch! I only used 2 pieces of 6×6 paper but if you had one sheet that would totally work. I love the grey and white look of this. The cheer and the bow are from my stash but I think they are Pink Paislee. The DP is just from Michaels but it’s just so pretty!

I hope you like it and be sure to play along with us over on the blog! The rest of the DT has some amazing projects too!

It’s Tuesday so you have got to be here for this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

It’s a great sketch for quick and easy cards that you can do in no time at all and with minimal supplies!

I did a Doodlebug class with Vicki Boutin last weekend for my Crop & Create event and I had some pieces left over. This card sketch is perfect for little bits! If you had one piece of double sided paper and some cardstock, a couple of embellishments and you could make a lovely card.

Grab what’s on your table, head over to the blog and show us what you can create!

Hello all! Here we go with our last sketch of September 2021, over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I was in my die box and looking for one die when I came across this Spellbinders Build a Wreath die that I think I may have used 1 time several years ago and so I really wanted to give it another shot!

I just diecut the leaves out of a bunch of autumn colors and then just started building it up. Some I popped up using dimensionals and then added a few little enamel dots around. The grateful sentiment is from I think Scrapbook.com I believe the background paper is from Doodlebug and then I went over it with some ground espresso distress ink and distressed the edges.

C’mon over to the blog and join in this fun sketch with us!

We are on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog today with a fun new sketch for you!

The Design Team really had fun with this one and so did I….It’s been awhile since I’ve done a slimline card!

I used Doodlebug bits and pieces that I’ve had left over from the Spring Garden collection to do this card and the sentiment that I put in the middle is a die from Crafty Addicts. I cut it out 3x from card stock and then layered them one on top of the other so that it would give me a bit of dimension against the background. I just added a few enamel dots to finish it off.

Be sure to stop by the blog and give the rest of the DT some love and be sure to play along with us too!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Our first one in September at Tuesday Morning Sketches and we have a great sketch for you this week.

Here we go with my card!

I used some of the last bits of my Wildflower and Honey Collection from my August 2019 sampler. You can see for my card rather than going with a circular centre image, I went with a tag. I added some white wink of stella on the flower to add a bit more interest. Some Neuvo drops for those corners.

Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the DT has created.

Hey everyone. Happy Tuesday. Head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches Blog and see our new sketch and the DT inspiration for you!

This is a great sketch if you need a quick and simple card and yet has the option to really embellish it up if you want to.

I used the last of my Splendor collection by My Mind’s Eye. I just really love this stuff! Rather than splitting the paper and using to separate ones as the sketch shows, I decided to just keep it as one, and then I added my ribbon and bow to separate them. The HUGS die I’ve used before and it is one of my favorites and I believe it came in my last online class with SCT Magazine. Then I just added some sequins and a little fishtailed piece to complete.

Be sure to stop by our blog and see the great designs the rest of the DT has made with this awesome sketch!

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!
