Good morning!

 

Here is the other card I made yesterday using Foxy Friends. I really like how this one came out!

 

I used a couple papers from the Wood Textures DSP pack and embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

 

 

The images were stamped and then cut out with my Scan N Cut. Instead of adding a sentiment, I decided to add some linen thread.

 

Have a great day!

Ink: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Crumb Cake

I’m back after almost a 3 week hiatus. My lingering cough from the bronchitis is *almost* gone, but allergies have still kicked my butt on an ongoing basis. This spring/summer has been brutal for me.

 

Anyways, back to 30 in 30….no way am I going to catch up at this point! I used my last early release Friday for crafting. First time I haven’t had things to do after work all summer.

 

Since I was feeling rusty, I decided to pick something from one of my many lists, on today’s Stampin’ Up! list was Foxy Friends. This set hadn’t been inked up before today so I made 2 cards! I have plans for a couple more but stopped for dinner and now it’s baseball time!

 

I chose the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to showcase my little fox friend.

 

The color combination is also from my list: Melon Mambo, Cajun Craze and Sahara Sand. I never would have paired the Melon Mambo and Cajun Craze without my list. I really like it! The fox and tree stump were cut out with my Scan N Cut. I am trying to make better use of it since it mostly collects dust!

 

Here is the sketch~

 

Have a great night!

Hi!

 

I was up super early this morning and made this Christmas card, then I got busy with Sunday chores and came close to forgetting to blog it!

 

I was inspired by the color palette at Color Throwdown in making this card. I really like how it turned out!

 

 

When looking for paper with green in it, I came across this striped design in the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP. Then I decided to use this fun SU set I bought last year and never inked up. The NOEL is from the coordinating die set, I thought it made a good mantel for my stockings.

 

Here is the color palette used ~

 

Have a great night!

August 30 in 30 #1 – Lil Firecracker

Hello and Happy August!

 

A small group of friends is aiming for 30 projects in 30 days, not daily just at least 30 projects created by month’s end. I decided to join in since July was a bit of a letdown craft wise.

 

My first project is a layout using the new sketch from Creative Scrappers and a picture of my youngest niece. I have had a small pile of pictures sitting on my desk from last summer that I am hoping to get through this month, in addition to making cards.

 

I used one picture instead of the two shown on the sketch, most of my pile is single photos to scrapbook. I challenged myself to use some Doodlebug paper that has also been sitting around since last summer. I only had a border sticker sheet to go with them, so I pulled out a few old Creative Memories punches and some Doodlebug sprinkles to embellish my page.

 

 

I really need to work on both my niece’s and nephew’s scrapbooks since their little brother will be arriving later this month! I still haven’t scrapped their birth pictures. I tend to gravitate more towards the everyday pictures instead of the milestones. I need to change that soon!

 

Here is the sketch~

Have a great night!
