My Niece’s Baptism Card

My niece was baptized on Sunday and I made this customized card for her.

 

2016 Card 59 - Madelyn baptism card

 

It took me awhile to put it together as I don’t typically make religious cards.  I found a cross in a Verve Christmas stamp set and I made the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Milo ABC’s stamp set. I think I did pretty good!  The embossed background is from an old Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Decorative Tile set.

 

Here is a picture of my beautiful niece 🙂  She is 5 months old now.

LOAD14 – Valentine’s Day 2016

We had a nice quiet Valentine’s Day at home and since today’s prompt is food, I decided to scrapbook our day. Not sure when I’ve scrapbooked pictures so quickly!

 

I used the February Sketch from Paper Issues and it’s my second entry for my group’s Old/New challenge. I mixed Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush from 2009 and J’Adore from a year or two ago.

I added hearts using an MFT stencil and distress inks in the upper left corner. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with tiny hearts on the bottom right.

 

Here is the sketch~

Have a great night!

 

 

LOAD8 – New Toy

Today was a color prompt – red & white from the Canadian flag. 

I came across these pictures from my stepdad’s birthday and I had the Carta Bella It’s a Celebration set aside to use with them. I added in a few pops of color with the balloons to keep it fun. 
  

Page design is all mine. I am trying to challenge myself to not use a sketch once in awhile. 

Fun fact: I have scrapped 33 photos this month and I am only 8 days into this challenge. Hoping to at least double that number by month’s end. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Warming up for LOAD

I did a silly thing last week…I signed up for LOAD216. The goal is to make one layout a day. There are daily prompts but they don’t have to be used. I’m hoping to use some though since the theme is Around the World in 29 days and I have oodles of vacation pictures to scrapbook!

 

Today I made this layout of my nieces. I’ve had these pictures and papers set aside for a least a year and a half. I still have plenty of the paper left. Glad to have the pictures glued down to paper now.  I used a sketch from one of my scrappy groups, it was a fun one. I liked adding all the little bits down the right hand side.
