Thankful To Call You Friend

 

I made the following card using the sketch above from Freshly Made Sketches. The red cardstock/card base is from The Stamps of Life as is the brad on the tag, and the bling. The stamps are from Unity Stamp Company Carlee's Christmas- the sentiment, image, and inside text- and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The holly paper/patterned paper, the tag, and the paper under the sentiment are from Doodlebug Design Inc Christmas Magic 6"x6" paper pad. I colored in the image with various colors of Marvy Uchida Color In Watercolor Twist colored pencils. I adhered the tag down not only with a brad, but also with Aleene's Instant Tacky Line Runner and used it on everything else except the sentiment and the paper on the tag. I used my Xyron 150 CreateASticker maker to add the paper to the tag and the sentiment to the top of the tag.

TFL and have a great week!

Stay Strong


I haven't used this stamp set in awhile and decided to make a card with it. It's Unity Stamp Company Graciellie Design Stay Strong. I stamped the sentiment stamp with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Candied Apple and the coffee cup stamp with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Tea Dye and Candied Apple- both stamped on typing paper. I colored in the coffee cup with Color In Watercolor Pencils. The patterned paper is from Echo Park Paper Company I'd Rather Be Crafting set and the green paper is from Tim Holtz Kraft Classic pad. The tag behind the coffee is from K & Company Mega Assorted Spring Travel Tag Pad. The sequins are from Ink Road Stamps, but are no longer being given away. I'm joining Coffee Loving Card Makers blog hop with this card so please hop along and enjoy! :)

Nobody Sees The World

 
This is the first layout I have made since last year and it took me all day to plan it out and finish! The main background paper is from Simple Stories DIY Boutique No Worries (how fitting for this layout). The title- Nobody Sees the World Quite Like You is from MAMBI Sheets I heart the live we live Specialty Cardstock. The egg PP on the corners is from Colorbok Holiday Extravaganza 12in Designer Paper. The tag is from Colorbok Sweet Florals Scrap Pack and I wrote BG didn't understand he was supposed to pick up the eggs. He just wanted to enjoy the weather! I also just realized I put the wrong year- Quarantine Brain- the egg hunt was on 3-28-20. He's 22 months old. His parents- my sister, Emily, and Brian are in the bottom left corner. I chose this title and left some of the Simple Stories paper uncovered to show that BG doesn't have to worry about the coronavirus. I love being his auntie and am happy when he calls me by name every once in awhile. It's hard to believe he'll be 2 in May! I have a few more pics of him to scrap. I have to scrap to keep busy and sane. Anyone else? Have a great day and TFL!

First Valentine's Day Card of 2020

I made the following card using the above sketch from CAS(E)this Sketch!

The card base and all the paper is from The Stamps of Life. The stamped image is from Stampendous Love You Candy rubber stamp that I stamped with Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored it in with Marvy Uchida ColorIn Watercolor Twist Colored Pencils. The bling is also from The Stamps of Life.

This inside sentiment is from The Stamps of Life icecreamtruck2stamp set and I used Gina K Designs Amalgam ink to stamp it using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform as I did on the front. I'm not sure who I'm going to give this card to, but will be giving it out this Valentine's Day. I want to try to make some more cards this week. My scrap stuff is in a mess right now as I'm sorting it all to have my own scrap space. Have a great week!

I decided to make a layout of my nephew, BG. I used The Paper Studio Forest Friends Papercrafting Kit for everything except the journaling. I typed the journaling- BG playing at Main Street Park 10-19-19- on my computer. I decided to let the pictures be the focus of the layout and not add a lot to it since the paper is so busy. The park is surrounded by trees so it looks like it is in the forest. He's such a loving little 16 month old boy! I know I usually have more to say about my projects, but I'll let the layout speak for itself!
Be sure to hop over to Charlotte https://thejoyfulsoulcreates.wordpress.com/ I'm sure she has something awesome to share with us!
