It's a Girl

So a good friend of mine recently had a baby girl.  I haven't seen them yet, but when I do I want to be prepared!!  I saw this sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and wanted to use it to make a welcome baby card.  I dug through my scrap paper and miscellaneous stickers to make it.  So here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Everything I used was just random scraps and bits. 

Thanks for looking!!  :)

Snowflakes are kisses...

I decided to play along with another sketch challenge today!!  I haven't been doing much crafting lately, but when I saw this sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I knew I had to use it!!  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I used retired Wonderland paper from CTMH, silver shimmer trim from CTMH and the Flakey Friends stamp from CTMH for the sentiment.  The snowflakes were stickers that I found in my sticker drawer.  The sentiment says "snowflakes are kisses sent from heaven".   A simple card that took about 5 minutes to put together!!

Thanks for looking!!  :)

Masculine Cards

So hubby needed a card for a friend the other day, and while trying to find one I realized I am short on man cards!!  I have been on a roll ever since!!  I am trying to use up the little bit of paper I have from an old paper pack from CTMH called Victory.  I loved this paper, still do!!  Wish I had more of it!!  So all of these cards are made using the Victory paper.  The animal stamp is from a SU set called In Wilderness.  The other stamp set I used is from the Victory WOTG. 

Thanks for looking!!  ☺

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #15

So I have been on a mission lately to use up scraps and create some masculine cards.  Easy enough to do when you have a great sketch to follow!!  Here is the sketch, I found it here:

And here is what I did with it!  The cardstock and paper is from CTMH, a retired paper pack called Victory.  The image is from SU, one of my faves!!  :)  Perfect for those masculine cards!

Thanks for looking!!  ☺

Ayla's 1st Year Scrapbook

So I have been working on scrapbooks for my kids, and finally finished my daughters!!!  She will be 6 next month, so I am 5 years behind, but I got it done!!!  ☺  I didn't do a typical scrapbook for her.  I chose cute/funny pictures to scrapbook, and didn't really worry about recording the firsts.  I still plan on scrapbooking some of them, like the first time she crawled, etc.  I have a baby book that is half filled out with those important firsts recorded.  Maybe one day I will transfer them to a scrapbook page, but for now I am happy that I finally finished this!!  ☺

Commissioned Wedding Album Part 2

So my last post showed the progress on the wedding album.  I have finished it, and want to show you the rest!!!  :)

This is the Bridal Party page:

The Reception page:

Cake and First Dance:

Last page, Mr & Mrs:

I also took this book and had it engraved at the same place I did the baby scrapbook, but I wasn't as impressed with it this time.  Some of the lines were really hard to see making it look incomplete (to me).  But, living in a small town leaves you with limited options, and unless I wanted to drive for 2 hours, there wasn't much I could do!!  The important thing is my customer loved it!!  ☺

Commissioned Wedding Album.

So a few weeks ago, I completed my first ever commissioned scrapbook.  The customer was so happy with the result!!  She contacted me again recently and has asked for a wedding scrapbook!  So here is what I have so far:

Intro Page.  Fabulo(us).  I used For Always paper from CTMH, glitter chipboard letter, and some flowers. 

Here's the Story of Our Love. This is the For Always WOTG from CTMH.  If you have not purchased or played with a WOTG (workshop on the go) you don't know what you are missing!!  I call it "scrapbooking for dummies"!!  It's impossible to make a bad layout following their instructions!!  :)  Anyway, the only change I really made to this layout is the tag on the left page.  I added that so they would have an extra place for journaling!!

The Dress.  I used La Belle Vie papers and embellishments from CTMH for this layout


Journaling tag.

He/She Loved Me First.  Double layout for brides father and grooms mother

Heart bling!

Getting Ready double layout.  I used For Always paper from CTMH.

Embellishment I made using black tulle from CTMH and a brad from my stash.

Ceremony double layout.  Again using For Always paper and purple (wedding colours are white and purple). 


Bow using purple ribbon from my stash

Same purple ribbon around title block.

Purple shimmer trim I found at Micheal's I think!
