A Sketch & Color Challenge!!

Hello Peeps!!

I'm so glad you stopped by to see my card today! It's for a Sketch & Color Challenge! I must say both of these challenges are pretty awesome! Just look at the sketch, perfection! The colors and classy pic for inspiration, lovely!

The sketch is from Mojo Monday and the color inspirational pic is from Moxie Fab Worlds Tuesday Trigger called Autumn Awaits. This will be my first time entering both of these challenges. As you can see I turned the sketch. Links to these challenges are on the pics and the recipe for this card is at the end of this post.  

I used Recollections white cardstock for the base of this card, My Minds Eye patterned papers from the Lost & Found Rosy and Vanity Fair collection, Stampin Up Just Believe stamp set, Close To My Heart Outdoor Denim and Black ink, American Crafts Ribbon, Recollections Faux Pearls.

Have a SWEET day!!

Love Cards Using a Echo Park Sketch

I have two cards to share! Both were made for Echo Park, using Kandis Smith's cute and simple sketch! I used EP - This n That Graceful, Hello Summer and Dots&Stripes patterned papers.

EP - This and That Graceful papers, KI Memories stamps, buttons and teal twine!

EP - Dots&Stripes, Hello Summer patterned papers, Stampin Up button, pink twine,
heart chipboard shapes that I embossed with Sizzix's folders and painted with Plaid Acrylic paints!
It was really fun to take my chipboard shapes and emboss them with different patterns. I finally got
to use some here with this card. Oh wait I did use one on baby card, it was tag with swiss dots. Something you should try doing, once you start embossing them you'll be grabbing more shapes to transform into something unique!! Have fun playing!!

Missing You Card using a Freshly Made Sketch

OOPSIE!! I totally forgot to submit this card for last weeks Freshly Made Sketch. I had it ready to go, just procrastinated on getting its picture taken. Oh well, whatcha gonna do! I guess go ahead and share it anyway ;)

I used Cosmo Crickets patterned papers, Close To My Heart stamps, a few diecut shapes from Cricut and punches, a precut embossed bird.

Celebrate Every Moment Mini Scrapbook

Aaww, celebrate every moment!! Such a great feeling of happiness to cherish our lifes moments, even if its in a little mini scrapbook.

While perusing the aisles of Jo-Anns, what do I see Basic Grey!?! What BG is at Jo's, suuwweet!! I fell in love with this little Serendipity & Shine On printed chipboard album. It came with 5 boards, of course I had get the most out of it so I split it up to make two mini's. Also, got the two matching 6x6 paper pads. I didn't like that the one mini would have three boards and the other one only two boards. So, being super crafty I cut a chipboard peice to match and put paper on it and wha-la an embellished album! The other one is going to be a "birthday" mini scrapbook. This one was made with Basic Grey Serendipity patterned papers, a peice of Bazzill cardstock, Heidi Grace metal accents, brads by American Crafts and K&Co., Pebbles ribbon, twine, Spellbinders diecuts, Martha Stewart border punches, Cricut diecuts, CK rub-ons.  

This Mini Scrapbook is available in my Etsy Shop!

Have a SWEET day!!
