Up, Up and Away WPlus9 Card for Little Red Wagon


Hello Everyone

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for our Little Red Wagon Challenge #300 !! :)  This week Brenda is hosting our challenge and it's "Up, Up and Away!!" 
This is the card I created for the Little Red Wagon Design Team Wednesday Challenge :)!!

I love love love these adorable elephants from WPlus9!!!  I love creating cards with them!!!  This time I did colour them with some of my BG Copic markers just to change things up!!! I also used Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set for the cluster of balloons.  The grass border dies are from Mama Elephant as well as the stitched clouds and stitched background.  I finished my card off with clear wink of stella on the balloons.

Lawn Fawn Sweet Smiles M&M Shaker Card



Hello Everyone!

Happy Friday!!! :)  Today I'm sharing a shaker card I created with the new Sweet Smiles stamp and die as well as the Say Cheese stamp set and die.  I decided to use the gumball that is in the Sweet Smiles set as M&Ms!  I stamped a bunch of them and coloured them with my Copic markers in the classic M&M colours.  I then took my Lawn Fawn Smitty's lower case 'm' heat embossed each of the M&Ms with it and white embossing powder.  I used the Say Cheese polaroid stamp and coordinating die for the front of my card.  I added M&M coloured sequins inside my shaker.  I completed the card with one of the sentiments in the Sweet Smiles stamp set and added some more M&Ms sprinkled around over the front.

Hope I have inspired you to take out your stamp sets and dies and create something other than what the stamp set was created for! :)




Thank you for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

Little Red Wagon July 22 challenge - Thickers and Stickers

Hello Everyone

This Wednesday's Little Red Wagon Challenge is to use Thickers and Stickers on your project.  

For this LRW Challenge #299 I decided to create a title card for my pocket page layout,  This had been a layout that I had been wanting to create and this LRW challenge gave me the perfect chance to do it.  The pocket page layout is based on a Becky Fleck PageMaps Sketch.  I used some older Simple Stories pocket page 4x6 and 3x4 cards and embellished them.  For my Thicker/sticker title card I used Simple Stories Alphabet Stickers and American Craft foam thickers.  I also used other stickers throughout my layout as well.










We would love to see your projects linked up over at the Little Red Wagon blog based on the weekly challenges.

12th Time Scrapbooking Layout For Sketch N Scrap

************This is the 1st post of the day.  For my Little Red Wagon Post please click here************




Hello Everyone

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for the sketch Kelly Holyfield designed over at Sketch N Scrap. I love this sketch!!!! It is definitely one I can see myself using over and over again :).

I used products from Crate Paper, Maggie Holmes and Elle's Studio.  This layout came together easily and I loved the fact that I did some journaling on my layout other than the usual one liners and the date!  I also typed my journaling out on my laptop and printed it one of my Crate Paper pattern papers.  I love the took of the printing on my layout instead of my hand writing! (I know it's nice to hand write on layouts but I really don't like my hand writing and tend to want to journal more if I print it out). :)







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!

Mama Elephant Tiny Heroes Card For Sketch N Scrap

Hello Everyone
I'm so excited to be sharing my 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 created a portrait top folding card for this sketch.  I used Peek-A-Boo die from Pretty Pink Posh and the Tiny Heroes stamp set and die from Mama Elephant.  I used vellum for my die cut clouds and silver embossing powder for the sentiment and stars.  I coloured my super girl with my Copic markers.  My papers are Lawn Fawn and card stock from Stampin' Up!

Look Who's One Today - Frosted Designs Friday Challenge July 3rd - Red, White and/or Blue

Hello Everyone! :)

Today's Friday Challenge for Frosted Designs is Red, White and/or Blue plus something old and something new!

I have always grid designs.  This one is based on a PageMaps/Becky Fleck sketch.  My something old are the photos and the templates I used for the stitching. My something new are the papers and stickers from Simple Stories. I didn't use the traditional Red, White and Blue colours because my layout was a birthday layout.  I chose this Simple Stories Valentine/Love for my layout.  It worked out great even though it was meant for Love/Valentine's Day and not a Birthday Theme.  I kept it pretty simple and added some stitching for a bit of texture.  I encourage you to use some of your themed products for projects other than what their theme is.  Your products will go further!!! :)







Hop on over to checkout all the other awesome creations based on this challenge over on the Frosted Designs Blog. Don't forget to play along with us at Frosted Designs and link up your take on this 'Red, White and/or Blue' Challenge!
