Tuesday Template 08-31-10

On this sketch I wanted to incorporate some upcoming holiday. So, I used this sketch to create a Christmas themed card using Jingle Jolly and the Reece SWIC. My goal is to have more cards done before the season is actually here.
How many Christmas cards do you have done?

Just plain mice

I found these little findings that you can attach ribbons to your projects. I love them, and love using them too.
These cute little mice are another one of the adorable images in the mice day set.

This week's sketch is a simple and clean. I went back through some old sketches and tweaked this one to using an oval. If you can play be sure put a link in your comments so we can all see your wonderful work.

The base of this card is made with Mia's Cottage SWIC, and layered with black and white cardstock.

Scrapping Again

I had an opportunity to scrap again this weekend. Here is a weekend that we spent playing with John's new RC boat.

This is the other card that I sent for the Bling Bling contest. It did not win but that is okay since the one that did was super cute. Be sure to check out all the talented winners at http://www.theangelcompany.net/

This is a Test

I am not sure what is going on but my blog is having issues. I had scheduled three post for the next couple of days and it seems they all posted on the 17th. Well, now that really messed me up I was hoping to get ahead on posting. ARGH!
Well, maybe this one will actually post on the 19th like scheduled. LOL!

Winner July TAC Contest

I am taking this opportunity to toot my own horn. Sorry, I am just floating. I won a contest at TAC. I am very excited to share the card that I won the fabulous frames category.
I have been trying to submit at least one entry each month. I have on average done more than that since I want to increase my chances. LOL!
I used my copic's to color the ribbon and tag to match the SWIC collection. Hope you like it. I will post the non winner tomorrow.

Sweet Friend

I hope to send this little card to a friend, I have been very bad lately and not sending cards. I am on a mission to send more for the remaining of the year.

The Lord Bless You

Trying a vintage feel, did not get exactly what I wanted. This is one of those things that I struggle with is the Vintage. I will continue to work on more cards and see if I can do anything other than cutesy. ARGH! Major bummed that this did not come out as I imagined.

Polka dots

Aren't these to polka dots cute? I am lovin' this little package. It is just one of the cute images included in Jingle Jolly.

Friday, August 13, 2010

A dear friend sent me a super cute cards with bright colors and image. So, I stamplifted the design. Here is my take. I hope she does not mind.

Feeling Better

I used the an old tool for this one called the color cutter. This is a market with a little blade inside. Then you can cut a shape out lined with ink. I made this swirl with it.

Back to School

Back to School is all I can think of lately. This card was my take on back to school. I think I will create a page using this set.

Another Scrap Page

Here is another installment of my hand at doing scrap pages again. I wish there was a good way to take a picture of a 12X12 page. Sorry, the pictures came out so dark. I love this one of the kids playing on this private beach we found on Fisherman's Island. It was this tiny island located in the Chesapeake Bay, so much fun.
I am trying to get my pictures caught up to date, with the trips we have taken. I am trying to get at least one done a month, ambitious aren't I?
Please share your links to pages you have done, I would love to see them.

Bee Cause

Made this card just bee cause, I wanted a simple card to give a friend. I ended up use two colors of yellow to come up with this shade. I wanted a honey color for my bee.

Another one from Favorite Set

I was trying something new out on this card. I wanted the sentiment to look like a row of tickets. I think I need to perforate the ends and maybe use some ink too. I kind of like the way it turned out but next time I will take it a little further.
Of course this is my favorite set, I keep reaching for it. So, I am sorry but be prepared to see lots of samples with this one.

I am really sold on the new SWIC called Emma. I used the felt flowers and stitched around it for more contrast.

I added a little color to the scallop circle by masking off a circle.

Popped the cupcake and cut it out.

Alien too

Sending little birthday wishes, so a sweet little someone. Here is the card for that little person. This is a cute set and I think I have to have it for my very own. I has a few images stamped from seminar but now I am out and want to create more with him. Plus there is a cute frog, deer and hedgehog in this set. I am totally lovin it.

Scrapping Again

Okay, so I have not scrapped in a very long time. So I thought I would try my hand at it again. Well, I am not thrilled with my results.
First they no longer carry the size albums that I am used to. I have alway scrapped 9X9. Well, the store I went to said that they no longer carry that odd size. ARGH!
So this is my hand at 12X12, which I have always felt was way too big. I do not think I can go down to a 8X8 but that may be were I am headed.
Plus, I tried to hand journal not a great idea either since I hate my handwriting.

Tuesday Template 08-03-10

I hope this is not too close to any sketch I have done before, it is all starting to look alike to me. LOL!

These mice are all so very cute. I have been using them a lot lately. I used the the nesties to frame the image, and to stencil. I colored with the mouse with copics, which I am loving.

OH! Bunny

Oh, bunny! My darling hubby thinks this bunny has female parts, can you guess which? I actually like this set but my hubby might have a point.
Not really sure I know what to think.

Another SOTM

Another sample using the stamp of the month. This little girl can have any expression you desire. I really like the fact that you can draw her mouth. Leaves the options open.
I used the scor-bug to give my background texture. I added ribbon and some scrappers floss. I can not live with out scrappers floss. I love it!

Delightfully Spooky SOTM

This is from this months SOTM set, you will flip over these cuties. I just can not what to use them in my scrapbook. Check back I will have more samples for you to see.
