Colorful Creations - spotlight members - DT Call

Colorful Creations hosts spotlight to member and uses sketches. 
This one happens to be mine and thought I'd share it with you and also encourage
you to stop by and maybe play along... so many amazing challenges and lots of
great sketches too.
They are also having a DT call right now for those interested.


My Scraps and More ... end of March Sketchathon

Happy Easter.. today I am privileged to share the last card sketch 
for the sketchathon that has been going on at My Scraps and More all month long.
You still have about a week to play along with us.
SRM stickers are one of my newest product lines.. and I used it in the 
sentiment on this card along with some stitches too.

The sketch is to be used along with the twist to add butterflies or flowers to your card.

All this month I have shared my sketches in black n white for the Sketchathon
and on my blog I have been posting the coloured sketch that matches it. 
\Someday maybe lots more sketch sites will welcome the coloured ones that I love to create.

SRM Products make fun Easter Treat Holders

Using SRM tubes and stickers and adding a few more accents 
made the cutest treat holders for Easter for my neighbor kids.
Using cardstock the size of tubes I then used the stickers below to accent them.
I made cardstock tags to put the kids names on and added SRM accents also.

Below are the SRM products that made making the cute treat tubes so easy to assemble.

Fabulous and easy to use stickers.

Scrapbook Steals & Studio Calico

hi.. sorry i forgot to finish this post.. hope you enjoyed the view with 
no description.........
I have been honoured to be on the DT at Scrapbook Steals and 
I normally give you a sneak peak and send you to their site.
With this being my last month I thought it would be fun
to share the full pieces of some of my projects 
because it was amazing to work with the products.

This Collection is Studio Calico - Classic Calico and  I had 
so much fun with it.

I also have to tell you that other than adding some 12x12 foundation and accents
I was using the amazing 6x6 pads. I even surprised myself with what you could
accomplish using just the smaller sheets.

And last but not least I would like to share my slide show of the mini
album I made using the same product and my old photos that are perfect in this
ancestry... family mini album.

Thanks for your support and glad you popped by.. hope you have a great day.

More Card Sketches and Cards


Hi .. here are my first 3 weeks of Sketches with Twists for 
#1 Twist is to add a punched shape.

I am going to share with you the posted sketch in black n white, the sample card I made and 
also last but not least my original coloured sketch.
I am having so much fun with sketches and do them all in colour.
I am having trouble how ever getting anyone to love the colour ones 
over standard black and white...
 so today I thought it would be interesting to at least share both for you to enjoy.

#2 Twist is to add twine.

#3 Twist is to add brads.

Thanks for stopping by .. and hope you enjoy my sketches... because I have fun
sharing them with you.. and if you are so inclined  share your opinion about the coloured sketches in the comments section... I would love to hear what you have to say.


Fun Things to share today

My Scraps and More Sunday Cards with Bev (yes that's me)... sure hope if you like cards and sketches to go with them that you'll take the time and visit and even play along and share with us... and a 
chance for the monthly prize. The twist on this one today is to add stitching.
Lots of SRM stickers on this one.

This card I made for fun.. don't get to do that often with some many challenges due but had fun with the SRM stickers.. my newest craze right now.. they are amazing and so versatile.

Really would love to get these photos sized bigger and beside each other.. 
but for now here is a double pager I made using 2 different sketches from My Scraps and More.
Used My Minds Eye - Kraft Funday.
Did I tell you they are having a sketchathon this month. It has been great fun and 
really inspirational with sketches, samples and fun twists.


Here is another double page layout using different sketchathon twist challenges.
Used Fancy Pants - to the Moon.
OMG not sure how the photos got together because I didn't do it.. and can't get the ones above 
to do this either. Would love to figure this all out some day.


Robins' Nest dew drops are a perfect accent for any water themed project.

The above are 2 more fun pages.. I enjoyed each one using different sketches and 
loved the bottom one because I used washi tape strips for background and corner.

Thanks for viewing my mix of projects today... hope your having a great weekend.
