Sketch N Stash

Sketch N Stash Challenge #54
Click HERE to see their website.
here is this weeks (2) Challenge:
This is my take on the sketch:
The background stripes are from an old 8x8 paper pack, the Heart charm is left over from my In-Laws 40th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal Invitations, the embossed white paper is a new technique (I used my sister's new cuttlebug machine she got for Christmas), the "Love" stamp is TPC, and the Digi is MelJen's.

I just found this blog and have instantly become a fan. Last week I made over 35 cards using up my scraps. I hope to make a lot more with the scraps I still have.

Scrappily Ever After

The Scrappily Ever After blog posted a birthday challenge. See it HERE.The inspiration was a photograph:
and this is what I was inspired to make:
Such a fun challenge.
I am especially in the birthday mood since my birthday is this week as well. :D

Sweet Stampin' Challenge Sketch

This is the sketch I followed. Check it out.

Saturday Seminar at OWH

Yesterday on the Stars & Stamps blog was the first Saturday Seminar. I really enjoyed reading all of the tips and advice giving to us by Paula. I am going to participart in the seminar but I made a card this morning utilizing the tips giving in the seminar. (I don't know why my black ink looks blue)

Organization is Key!

Over the holiday season my craft room became the dumping ground for all sorts of things.
I decided to start organizing it.
Such a mess! I cleared out the room and went shopping at Ikea.
My husband took on the task of building all of the shelving units.

They turned out excellent.

Now remember this is a work in progress, but this is what my craft room looks like today:
Now it's time to make it look "pretty"!

Happy Birthday!

I was looking through all of the free digital stamps that I have acquired, over the last six months, and was inspired by two that I found from Dustin Pike.
I thought that if I layered these images it would make a great scene for my next card.
So I took out my colored pencils and got to work.

I stamped the standard with Hero Arts "Happy Birthday" stamp and the shield with a star that is either TPC Studio or Hampton Art. I can't remember which. With the help of some foam adhesive squares I assembled the card. This is how it turned out:

Thank you Dustin Pike for your inspirational Digital art!!!

Midweek Throwdown

This week for OWH's Midweek Throwdown we were asked to make: Cards 4 kids.
I decided to used Elizabeth O. Dulemba Free Robot Digi.
The "Thinking of you" stamp is from Hero arts.

I just wish my flash wouldn't dull the colors of my cards.
Any tips would be appreciated.

More New Cards

I am loving that I have more time to make cards for OWH these days.

Featured Cardmaker

I really liked all of the cards made by Ann K. Who is this week's Featured cardmaker on OWH.
I CASE'd one of her cards, and here it is:

Double Display Card

My sister shared a blog post with me that gave a tutorial for making the double display card. This site is Sweet as a gumdrop: http://sweetasagumdrop.blogspot.com/2010/02/birthday-card-template.html#comment-form 
click on the link above.
Here is my version of the card:

I have entered this card in My pink stamper's birthday challenge.

I wanted to make another card using this fold technique so I made my In-laws an Anniversary card.

Operation write home has another great sketch for us to try:


I choose to use Pink, Black and White. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

New Cards


Last night I got a little creative a made 20 of these cards (4 to 6 of each). I love the first two cards but I think the other two need something. What do you think? Let me know.

Swedish Birthday Card!

My friend's birthday is coming up and since she is Swedish I thought it would be fun to make a birthday card in Swedish. Hopefully the translation is correct. 

The cover says "Happy Birthday" in Swedish.

The inside message says "I wish you a day full of surprises"
