Happy Halloween Card for World Card Making Month October 2014


Hello Everyone and Happy World Card Making Month!
Today I'm sharing a Halloween card I created for World Card Making Month post - HALLOWEEN OR ORANGE card over at Sketch N Scrap as part of the Design Team.  I used  a retired but still one of my favourite stamp sets for the image from Stampin' Up!  I coloured the image with the New Blendabilities Alcohol Markers from Stampin' Up! I heat embossed the stars with white embossing powder and then used Tim Holtz distress inks with a Blending Applicator for the background after I had masked off the image of the girl and moon.  The stitched card stock and patterned paper are cut with the new Lawn Fawn new Large and Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle die sets.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes.






Thank you for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

Sweet Smile layout featuring flairs from The Crafty Pickle

Hello Everyone

I created this layout using some amazing flairs that I received from Taniesa Vlasak.  She was kind enough to send these (plus some others that I will use in another layout very soon) fabulous flairs from her Etsy shop - The Crafty Pickle.  My flairs that I used for this layout were all about cameras and sayings around taking pictures so I knew that I wanted to use these pics of my daughter.  All other products used are Lawn Fawn.









I want to thank Taniesa for these awesome flairs for me to use.  You can visit her Etsy Shop The Crafty Pickle and purchase some absolutely awesome Flairs to use on your next project.


thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!

They are AWESOME!!!!!  I've been using some of the great techniques I have learned taking the Copic Markers for Card Makers class from Sandy Allnock, Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.  Fabulous class for anyone wanting to learn the basics as well as more advanced techniques.

Hello Everyone and Happy World Card Making Month!
Today I'm sharing a Holiday card I created for World Card Making Month post - HOLIDAY FUN over at Sketch N Scrap as part of the Design Team.  I used Stampin' Up!'s new Photopolymer Stamp Set White Christmas.  I heat embossed the snow flakes with white embossing powder and then used a sponge wedge dipped in Pool Party Ink Pad for the sky.  I used the heat and stick powder and iridescent ice embossing powder as snow around the hills.  The stitched card stock (both the red and scene card stock) are cut with the new Lawn Fawn new Large and Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle die sets.

Sketch N Scrap October 2014 Inspired By Layout - LOVE TO SEE YOU SMILE

Hello Everyone
I'm sharing a layout I created for the Sketch N Scrap October 2014 Inspired By sketch with you today!  The layout sketch was created by Kelly Holifield one of the very talented sketch artists and co-owners at Sketch N Scrap.

I used distress paint and stencil with distress ink for my background to give it some texture without adding bulk to my page.  I used some scrap strips of patterned paper from Crate Paper.
I used a mix of stamping and thickers for my title.  The arrows at the bottom of the page is stitching using Amy Tangerine Stencils.  I finished this layout off with using Heidi Swapp hearts.

Sketch N Scrap October 5th 2014 card(s) - THINKING OF YOU & MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hello Everyone
I'm so excited to be sharing this month's second Sketch N Scrap card with you today!  This is the card sketch created by Kelly Holifield one of the very talented sketch artists and co-owners at Sketch N Scrap.  I ended up creating two cards for this sketch. One is an everyday card the other a Christmas Card. I love starting out with a sketch and then see what I can do with it. Even though I used the same sketch my cards are very different from one another. The great thing about sketches are you can use the same sketch over and over again but get a different look based on the products you end up using.

For both the cards I used Stampin' Up! Products. Some current and some retired.







Thank you for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

Hello School using Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather collection for Scrapbooks By Design

Hello Everyone
Today I'm sharing a layout I created using Lawn Fawn products.  My papers are all from the Sweater Weather collection kit and the 6x6 paper pad.  I created a grid design for this layout so that I was able to show some of the amazing patterned papers in this collection!  For my title of Hello School I used  the scripty Hello and Cole's ABCs die set for the School.  The cute books and and birdies are from the Science of Love stamp set and coordinating die set.  The sequins are from the Into The Woods sequins from last fall.  Hope this inspires you to create a layout, a project life spread or a card with some of these amazing new and older products from Lawn Fawn found in the Scrapbooks By Design store online! :)
