added some more doodling, twine and fun layers.

Colorful Creations + Twist

Colorful Creations is sharing my sketch today with a twist "Paint". The cute page above is my sample using Momenta Product.  I popped up lots of sticker accents, added some doodled lines and stitches and the base was started with 3 colours of paint splatter.

I love doodling with sketches and for those that know me.. I love the coloured sketches.
I think  that the seasoned scrapper will ignore the colours and step out of their box to make and create whatever they want.. BUT the beginner who is intimated by sketches might not only grab the sketch but maybe be influenced to by the colouring and maybe even the accents... and this is all good in the learning process. A sketch is anything you want and need it to be.. so have fun and create.


Let's Get Sketchy

Let's Get Sketchy is sharing this amazing sketch this week by Tabitha.
Family get togethers to celebrate anything are my favourite thing to do.

Supply List:
My Minds Eye - sweetest thing lavender, twine, inking and
 the handmade chevron border.

Lots of fabulous kit accents and the added touch of twine.

More amazing kit accents and the homemade chevron border.

My Scraps and More and Card Sunday

Today at My Scraps and More we are celebrating the men in our lives by
getting some Father's Day cards ready.
This really easy but cute design is perfect for those guys in your life.
I used a 4x8" cardstock base... and folded it down to 4x4".
On the top left and right side you cut to centre about 1/2" at about the
1/2" down from the top of fold.
You then fold the outer corner on a slight slant down until the peaks touch.
I added brad accents to the corner of the collar part.
Next is the tie and pocket which I actually just winged it for shape and size.
On the top of the tie and pocket I had them a bit long so folded
them down to leave a nice layered look.
Finishes on the card are SRM Sticker sentiment and corner accent.
I used Basic Grey 6x6" pad of paper to decorate the base.

Here are a few sites that gave me some inspiration and help creating this card.

On the inside I added some matching coloured layers and border and
 then matted a mix of SRM Stickers and misc other to 
say Happy Father's Day and cute flower trim.
Join us and play along.. I'd love to see what you make.

Practical Scrappers and a Card Sketch

Today I join the Practical Scrappers using the great card sketch below.
With all the guys in my family and Father's Day coming up
I thought I'd make a masculine card.
I used fun papers, some kites and paper with a bike on it. 
It was perfect. Following the sketch I blocked the front piece and 
added the kites.

On these 2 other photos you can see the different sections of the
card .. I love playing with many styles when making cards.
Lots of fun sections to decorate.. and I used SRM Stickers 
outside and inside.


Just Imagine Crafts and Love is....

Hi Bev here again. I am filling in whenever needed and I 
am totalling enjoying this opportunity to share with you
With this card I thought I would experiment with some different shapes 
and see what I could do with them.
With all the fun curves it was possible to punch a whole 
section of the punch but by turning it up side down to punch 
I could see (within reason) where to punch a partial.
I used  Kreaxions #310 around the fun shaped outer 
border for the copic coloured floral.
The sentiments are SRM Stickers which are one of my 
new favourite things to use all the time.

Thanks for popping in.. and hope to see you again soon...

Just Imagine and a True Love Card


Hi Bev here today with this fun True Love card.

When you have even a single floral punch there is so much you can still do with it. I used Kreaxions Punch #603 multiple times to go around the circular Kreaxions cut centre  and then did more punches in the corners too. I added a thin circular ring accent, matted the centre circle and added SRM Stickers and sentiments. Matting in print around the centre circle and a different dot paper on the outer corners was perfect. I used My Minds Eye Collection.

Here is a close up of the back of the paper with the centre circle to start... lines to section off and space placement of the punching .. and the corner markes also. This is really easy and there are stencils to help with this.

Thanks for stopping by today.. we would love for you to like us on Facebook and when we hit 275 we will have a single winner.

Let's Get Sketchy

Let's Get Sketchy this week is using the fabulous sketch below from Ashley.
My page is celebrating myself and the 2 youngest Grand kids.
Fabulous My Minds Eye - the sweetest thing collection is used with adorable
and fun accents... a handmade chevron border, twine and brads.

This close up details some of the fun accents.
Be sure to visit the LGS blog and see what other creative pieces the 
rest of the DT have to share with you.


Robin's Nest DT Call

The Robin's Nest is having a DT Call and
I am excited to be submitting. At this time the only real
product of theirs I have is the clear dew drops but OMG I use them
all the time. They are so versatile on so many different themes and projects.
Today I am using them as an accent to some vellum fussy cut
floral accents and also for the centres of some stamped accents.

These are my grand kids and they make me smile... and
they are so precious to me. I love our sleep over
weekends with movies and popcorn.. and all
around fun time. The 4 of them get along really well
and enjoy spending time together.
This is one of those times that I had them all together and
made them pose for a group photo.
On this page I use Momenta Collection PA 0659.

To highlight some of my way to use dew drops ..
on this close up I stamped the images and put dew drops
in the centres and in the outer ring of the one stamped image.
Also notice the fun corner stitching.

This close up showcases the vellum fussy cut floral that I added  clear dew drop
 accents to .Behind it I had misted, added a stitched accent in corner
and doodled the flight path of the butterflies.

Some other fun things I added are a larger Martha Stewart butterfly
that I added stickles to. The smaller butter fly punch is Kreaxions #604
 and the circular rings are cut with Kreaxions Circle Cutter.
I added a cute twine tied bow done in double colours.

The title Grandchildren are Precious is stickers and on this close up you can also 
see some of the machine stitching and the piece of twine added to the side of the photo.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you enjoyed 
my Robin's Nest DT Call page that 
I shared with you because I had fun creating it.

My Scraps and More Card Sunday

Sunday Cards at My Scraps and More
are really fun to share with you. It makes me look around for
some fun ways to share easy to make cards with you.

This card is an Origami Shadow Box and OMG it's so easy.
Here is the link I used to see how to make it,

The only part I followed was the main section.

Use a 4x4" square and fold into 4 sections.
Fold into the centre on all sides.
Now bring the tip to the outer edge. 
Press down firmly on all the folds.
I used SRM Stickers for accent, border  and sentiments.
I embossed the lighter coloured mat and added stitching.
I used stash from my Authentique collection.

This is another close up so you can see the folds.
Sure hope you'll stop by My Scraps and More and share your card with me too.
