Valentine Card Recap

   Last week was Valentine's Day. I made some special cards for my family. In addition to the cards, I made each family member a special sweet treat. For dinner, I made heart-shaped pizzas and chili. 

   This was my mom's card. Her sweet treat was chocolate brownies with frosting. 
 Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), pattern paper (Pink Paislee and American Crafts), die cuts (American Crafts and Crate Paper), chipboard (Maya Road), washi tape (Scotch Expressions) and wood veneer (Crate Paper)

   This pop-up box card was my dad's. He also got lemon biscotti. 
 Supplies: cardstock (My Mind's Eye), pattern paper (Crate Paper), die cuts (Crate Paper), chipboard (Simple Stories and Maya Road), wood veneer (Crate Paper), and washi tape (Scotch Expressions)

   The last card was for my brother to go along with his oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. 
Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), pattern paper (Studio Calico and Crate Paper), die cuts (Crate Paper), chipboard (Maya Road), and Wash tape (Scotch Expressions)

Happy Wish Card

   I am back today to share a card with you that I created for the Scrapbook & Cards Today monthly sketch challenge. 

   Here is my take on it. That butterfly tag is super old, it is from American Crafts Gardenia collection. 
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Pretty Little Studio), die cuts (Pretty Little Studio), tag (American Crafts), stickers (Crate Paper), baker's twine (My Mind's Eye), border punch (EK Success), foil (Heidi Swapp) and Minc

   From an angle, you can tell the abstract line paper is foiled. I like how this card came together and it is a little different for me with so many bold patterns and colors all together.

So Stuffed

   Over the weekend, I finished scrapping my last batch of printed photos of the main 2017 events. The page I am about to share is for the Scrap Our A Stash Jan.15th-29th Blend-A-Sketch Challenge. 
   I scrapped some of the food photos of Thanksgiving. I blended the sketch by using 4 photos and the journaling area from the first sketch and the angle and title placement from the second sketch. 
 Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), pattern paper (Photo Play Paper and Fancy Pants Designs) die cuts (K&Co., Jilllibean Soup, Pretty Little Studio, My Mind's Eye, Scenic Route), stickers (Simple Stories and American Crafts), journaling spot (Making memories) , brad (My Mind's Eye), enamel embellishments (Crate Paper), rhinestones (?), embroidery floss (We R Memory Keepers), doily (DoodleBug Designs), typewriter (Typecast), stitching template (American Crafts) and washi tape (My Mind's Eye)

   I ended up using a really old journaling spot on this page, it was from Making Memories. I used a mix of stitching and Thickers for my title.
    I love the doilies peeking out from the edge and accented by the rhinestones and enamel shapes. 
    That tag is a free printable from Pretty Little Studio's collection Sweet Life. I printed it on parchment paper which gave it a softer tone.

Santa All I Want....

   I am getting closer to finishing scrappy 2017 photos. I only do one Christmas layout for my album since I do a December Daily mini album. This page was based on a Sketch Savy sketch that a scrapbook group used for their monthly scrapbook challenge. 
Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill Basics), pattern paper (Echo Park Paper Co.), die cuts (American Crafts, Pretty Little Studio) manual dies (Sizzix), stickers (Echo Park Paper Co. and Simple Stories), flair (Fancy Pants Designs), trim (American Crafts and Ladybug(?)), sequins (SpiegelMom Scraps)

   Here is a closer look at the corner cluster.

   I meant to type the journaling but remembered after I already adhered the card to the layout.

Best Wishes Card

   I am stopping by today to share a quick card that I created today for a challenge on a scrappy board. This card took only a couple of minutes to whip up. I love the 6.5" x 6.5" paper pads from KaiserCraft because they have cute element punchout embellishments. This will make a great guy birthday card. 

Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Kaiser Craft), stitching template (American Crafts), wood veneer (American Crafts), embroidery floss (DMC) 

    Here is a closer look at the stitching.

Right Now Dad Just For You

   As of now this is my last layout to share this week. I am caught up on layouts that I created this year so far. 
   Today's feature Let's Get Sketchy sketch 

   This page is page one of two (the second one is not made yet) of my Dad's birthday. If you notice the date on the page you might also realize that day was Thanksgiving in the US too. 
Supplies: pattern paper (Simple Stories), stamp (Studio Calico), flair (Pretty Little Studio), die cuts (Pretty Little Studio), foil (Heidi Swapp), mist (Tattered Angels), journaling cards(Webster's Pages and Pretty Little Studio), stamp ink (Tsukineko), stamping tool (MISTI), border punch (Fiskars) stitching template (American Crafts), pen and embroidery floss.

   The journaling card behind the cake photo is super old. I think it was like from the second collection by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages.  

   I just added foil to half of the "Right Now" die cut. I love mixing up titles. This features a die cut, stitching, and stamping.

New Year's Celebration

   Today's scrapbook page I will be sharing is based on Stuck?! Sketches 1.15.18 reveal. 

   I scrapped New Year's celebration. The after photo of the confetti fight (my parents get a little too crazy when it comes to the confetti) and the pear and/or banana crepes. 

Supplies: pattern paper (Echo Park Paper Co., The Robin's Nest and Studio Calico), marker (Design Memory Craft), typewriter (We R Memory Keepers), transparency (Studio Calico) border punch (EK Success), die cuts (Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, and Pretty Little Studio), stickers (Crate Paper and Pinkfresh) and flair (Fancy Pants Designs) 

   Here is a closer look at the title work. 

   The color transparency is a super old product from Studio Calico. I thought the different world location on them made them a great addition to use on a New Year page. 
I will be back soon to share another page.
