Sketch N Scrap {friend card}

Sketch N Scrap has a new card sketch up to share with you. 

Here is my take on the sketch. I've been going through some of my old kits and trying to use them up. This old Stampin' Up! kit was one of my favorites and I had just a bunch of little bits and pieces that weren't enough for a layout but perfect for a card.

Sketch N Scrap {Happy Birthday card}

Good morning! How is your weekend going so far? Mine has been PACKED it feels like. I keep telling myself to try to enjoy it because some day I'll find that there is nothing to do and an empty home with all my girls gone and moved out! But enough of that I have a quick and simple birthday card to share with you. I created this using Sketch N Scrap's card sketch. 

 I had some scraps left from an old kit and thought they would be perfect to use up on cards. What do you do with your extra's or scraps?

Birthday Celebration

How many of you start out the month with great intentions of participating in all sorts of fun challenges that other bloggers/scrapbookers/crafters put out? I always do! But there are times more often than naught that I just don't get them blogged and submitted in time. This layout is one of those times. :) 

Senedra's 12th birthday last year! It never fails to amaze me how fast time goes by each year! I swear I just brought her home all swaddled in baby blankets from the hospital. Now before me is a beautiful young girl just entering her Tweens. She is my biggest cuddler and sweetheart. 
 I added some faux stitching around my banner to really make it "pop" and stand out against the busy background.
I really like to add some 3D foam squares to embellishments on my layouts to add a little extra dimension. I added some to the cupcake, the title and the balloons.


 I used a Martha Steward Doily punch and then inked up the edges. 

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping! :)

Sketch N Scrap {Born to Ride}

Happy February 1st! :) One month closer to summer and sunshine! Haha! I've just about had enough of the is cold. In the mean time I'll continue to keep myself busy inside my warm home, scrapbooking! My favorite is to grab a sketch and get to work! Scrap N Sketch has a great one today! 

My oldest daughter was probably about 3 years old in the is picture and we had gone out of town to visit her Great Grandma who lived about 5 hours away. Along the way we stopped at a gas station and they had these little motorcycles outside. She insisted that she needed to ride one because they "just her size"! I love my sassy little girl. We got her up there and she grabbed onto the handles like she knew exactly what to do and WINKED at me! lol Oh that girl. Love her. 
 I love adding little clusters of embellishments.
 These little tab like pieces were fun! I even used the remains of a barcode strip! Always fun to be able to use up your scraps! I bet you can't even tell which piece it was. Alright, I'll tell you it's the one with the 3 little pink & red hearts.

Good Things Come in Small Packages

DCWV had a fun sketch challenge this month. I used DCWV The Kidlet Stack. It's an older one but still very cute!
 I did some fussy cutting with the cute little flowers and used a Martha Stewart Doily punch for my strip.

 I also fussy cut this cute little sign for my title and "hung" it on a brad. Then added some faux stitching with a white pen around the border of my page.
For my journaling I just used some of the scraps I had created making my layout.

Sketch N Scrap {Fun on the Slopes}

Good morning! I'm so excited to share with you today some fun and exciting news! I have been chosen to be part of a great design team over at Sketch N Scrap! They have such fun sketches and challenges make sure to check them out! Today I share with you my first layout for Sketch N Scrap! 

Today's Sketch N Scrap sketch- 

Here is my take on the sketch-
For my title I used a mix of alpha's- some big white foam ones and some smaller, flat ones. Then I went along using some enamal dots to break up my main title from my subtitle. I also did a bit of faux stitching along the pink alpha's of my subtitle.
