The π (Pi) sign was perfect for this challenge!  I have wanted to try string art for a while.  I have seen amazing layouts and projects with it.  This layout came together very easily.

3 Today - Using The Number "3" On A Layout or Card Celebrating Sketch N Scrap's 3rd Birthday!


************This is 1 of 2 posts today************



Hello Everyone

I am super excited to be sharing my second challenge in honour of Sketch N Scrap's 3rd Birthday!  It's to use the number "3" on a layout or card.

For my layout I used a combination of die cutting and stamping to get the desired results!! I stamped the number "3" all over the pink card stock.  I used the same ink colour as card stock to give it a tone on tone look. I also die cut the number "3" using Lawn Fawn number set Louis' 123s as part of my title.
Can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge!








I used this Sketch N Scrap from March 2015 as my inspiration

Sending Smiles Card - Sketch N Scrap May 20th Card Sketch



Hello Everyone
The card I created is based on today's Sketch N Scrap card sketch.  This is the card sketch was created by Lisa Hidy one of the very talented sketch artists and co-owners at Sketch N Scrap.

I used Lawn Fawn papers and dies and WPlus 9 stamp set (Unforgettable) and matching dies to create this frame card.  I coloured these absolutely adorable elephants with warm grey Copic markers.  The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant's Up and Away stamp set.




Remember to play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap.
We would love to see your cards and layouts based on the amazing sketches Lisa and Kelly create!

And remember that we are celebrating Sketch N Scrap's 3rd Birthday all month long.  My second challenge will be here on my blog on the 22nd (Friday) and I will have another prize pack for those who play along!!!

Happy On The Go! Layout for Sketch N Scrap May 2015 Twistback Thursday

Hello EveryoneI created this layout for the Sketch N Scrap Twistback Thursday!  The layout sketch was created by one of the very talented sketch artists at Sketch N Scrap. This month's Twistback Thursday is "The Great Outdoors" - using photos taken outside.

I have been wanting to get more use out of my Amy Tangerine Plus One products and decided to use them for this layout!  I used mostly papers that were neutral in colour except for some pops of pink!  I used a combination of a word sticker and sticker letters for my title.  A little stitching, a little washi tape and a couple of cardstock stickers and this layout was compete!








Remember to play along with us all month over at Sketch N Scrap as we celebrate our 3rd Birthday!!!  We will continue to have challenges daily from each of the Design Team.

Dreams Do Come True...Layout for Frosted Designs Friday Challenge "Mothers"

************This is 2 of 2 posts today************



Hello Everyone! :)

Today's Friday Challenge for Frosted Designs is all about "Mother(s)"!  It could be a tribute to your Mother or MIL, a Mother's Day Card, a Hen and her chicks... 

I decided to create a layout of my first Mother's Day as a mom.  I printed my photos in black and white and cropped them down to 3x4.  I misted the white background cardstock with a heart stencil. I love Dear Lizzy products and the softness to them and thought they would be very fitting for my page with my daughter!

A BOO-TIFUL Birthday Card using Lawn Fawn Products

************This is 1 of 2 posts today************



Hello Everyone

Today I created a birthday card using Lawn Fawn products!  The papers are from the Pint-Sized Patterns Beachside Collection Pack.  I used the Large and Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies for my layers. The three balloons were die cut using the Party Balloons die set. The sentiment was stamped with the Black Licorice ink pad on white cardstock die cut with the Stitched Labels die set.  I love the fact that Lawn Fawn has coordinating die sets for most of their stamp sets!  I stamped the cute monster with Monster Mash stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating Monster Mash die set.  I coloured the monster with Copic Markers.  
Hope I have inspired you to create cards with the amazing products from Lawn Fawn!



Thank you for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!
