scraps and spellbinders lattice die

Good Morning!

I spent some time just playing in my craft room this past weekend.  I have stuck with using only scraps, except for the lattice and these are the two I came up with.

Freshly Made!

Good Morning!

I have another card today.  I found the Freshly Made Sketches blog today and had to play along!  I love finding new sketch blogs, so if you know of a good one, please let me know.

The sketch...
My take on it, along with a close up...

Viva La Verve sketch

Good Morning!

Viva la Verve has the week 4 sketch posted and it's such a fun sketch!
Keeping with my "no full sheet" week, this one was made with all scraps also.

Most paper packs put images of the papers inside on the cover of the pack.  K&Company tends to put a strips down the front left side of the cover with a triangle of all the papers inside.  I took the cover off this pack of paper and used part of it on my card.  I added liquid pearls for the inside flowers.

Have a great week!

Tuesday Morning ~ Easter card

Good Morning!

I took a break from making cards from scrap to do the Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I'm using my new Graphic45 Sweet Sentiments collection and I haven't used it enough to have many scraps yet.  lol

The awesome sketch...

No Full Sheet Week

Good Morning!

I've taken the spring cleaning bug I've been bitten with to my craft room.  I decided to go with a NO full sheet week!  I have SOOO many scraps and I can't bring myself to throw them  (and all that money!) away.  I keep my Paper sets in large plastic bags handing in my closet.  That way I'm able to keep the books and scraps and whatever embellishments for each set together.  But the amount of scraps in most bags is amazing.  LOL  I also have 6 12x12 drawers full of scraps.  My goal for this week (at least!), is to use up those scraps and not touch a 12x12 sheet.  I'm hoping to do this until all my scraps are down to a manageable size.    :)

I found two images on Pinterest that inspired me, the first is from Rainy Day Creations.  I've been to Susan's blog, looking for the exact link to her card, but couldn't find it.  Susan's card was the inspiration for all the 4 x 5.5 sized cards.  (Her card looked way different than mine.  The inspiration I got from her card was the 3 panels and embossing them, in case you go looking for it.)

The 2nd card I found was from Verve Stamps.  I don't like to re-post someone elses work, but in this case, it's the only way to give her credit... another thing I hate to do is not give someone credit for their ideas that inspired me.  <Sigh>   I'm so glad her name is on her card!

Michele's card...

My take on this card...
I'll be back tomorrow with more cards, using the same cards as above for inspiration, but with another set of scrap papers.  No worries, I won't explain what I'm doing again tomorrow.  :)

Have an awesome week!

pink florals

Good Morning!

Viva la Verve has the week 3 sketch and inspiration posted!

Surprisingly enough, I don't have any tulips in my paper stash!  lol  I did go with the pinks and floral theme.  Of course I had to add a butterfly to it also.  :)

Mojo Monday and The Shabby Tea Room

Good Morning!

I played along with Mojo Monday again this week.  I thought this sketch was so much fun! 
Everything also fit in very well with The Shabby Tea Room.  It's been awhile since I played along there, I was so glad to be able to do so again.   This weeks theme is Spring is Near, using baby blue's, flowers and birds.
My take on it...

Viva la Verve

Good Morning,

I found a new (to me!) sketch site, Viva la Verve Sketches!

They have a sketch and color challenge posted.  As you know, I love doing sketches, but color challenges are, well... challenging for me.

My take on both...
