October’s Stick It Down Card Sketch

Happy October!  Its time for another fun card sketch from Stick It Down.  One can never have too many birthday cards.  We have five family members with birthdays in the month of October alone!  As always there is a single page layout, double page layout, and the card sketch to play along with – you have until the end of the month to play along.

World Card Making Day!

In honor of World Card Making day (yesterday) I was able to make a few cards between the normal weekend business.  And of course my daughter joined it.  We both used the sketches from Jillibean Soup who had posted a color challenge along with two sketch challenges.   Here are our cards, hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Stuck?! Sketches August Sketch Challenge

I have missed Laura Whitaker’s fabulous sketches lately.  I had a bit of time the other day and I choose to do her sketch from August 1st.  These pictures are from a quick trip to Portland when we went to grab some scrapbook room goodies from Ikea.  They were taken in the car and at night so the quality is not great and you can barely see my husband photo bombing my daughter, but we had fun!  I also finally had a chance to break into my Fancy Free stash.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

Have a great rest of your week!

Summer Vacation: Kids Challenge

Simon Says Challenge Blog is hosting a kid’s challenge this month.  This year’s challenge is anything goes with glitter.  We had two of my daughter’s friends over and they were happy to play in the “deserted” pile of die cuts and stamped images that my daughter and I had not had the opportunity to use.  My daughter had previously colored the die cut animals with Copic markers and colored pencils and Gamsol.  She also had fun showing her friends how to use my Cuttelbug.  Some sequins, glitter card stock, and distressed glitter was used.  Not sure how well the photos will show them but they are there!

Simon Says: Celebrate

Good morning, I finally have some time to get on the computer and I found a few challenges to enter! Simon Says is celebrating their sixth anniversary for their Monday challenge and this week’s theme is celebrate.  Here are a few cards I made using their Sketch Ranunculus, Wild Beauty, and Birthday Flowers stamps, all stamps are available on their site.



Stick It Down’s August Card Sketch

It’s time for another great card sketch (along with a single and double page sketch) over at Stick It Down.  This month’s featured card designer is me!  I love the whole Fancy Free line by Paige Evans and had great fun using my “scraps” to make this card.  And I finally found a use for the banner/pennant stickers I have had forever.  Be sure to check out Stick It Down‘s site for more inspiration throughout the month.  Here’s my card followed by the card sketch!
