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!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I created two patriotic cards to share today. I’ve had these Taylored Expressions stamps in my stash for awhile now. I finally dusted them off yesterday and inked them up for the first time using Tim Holtz distress markers.

 

 

 

I hope everyone celebrating today has a safe and fun day!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I made two cards on Friday to share today using Taylored Expressions stamps.

 

Here is the first one using Light Up the Night.  Do you see Mickey?  I didn’t even notice at first but there is a Mickey head out of the 3 big fireworks! I colored the fireworks using several Stampin’ Up! markers – Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Island Indigo and Lost Lagoon.

The plaid paper was cut using an MFT Cover Up die – the Stitched Cover Up companion – Vertical. I added a few star brads from my stash to complete the card.

 

Here is the second card using the 4th of July Wreath.  I stamped it on a tag cut from Build a Tag #1 and colored it with copics. I added twine and a star brad from my stash to finish it off.

Happy 4th of July!

Just popping in with a quick card to celebrate the 4th of July!

 

I used another old stamp from my stash, Stampendous Biker Bee, along with this week’s SCS sketch and more of the Americana paper that I used the other day.

 

2015 Card 58 - Stampendous Biker Bee

 

I added some sparkle to his wings and his little antennae but it’s not showing up too well.  It’s still wet and didn’t photograph well.

 

Here is the sketch~

Have a great day! I’ll be back much later with a Christmas card 🙂
