I finished a LO for the sketch challenge on Creative Scrappers. Somehow I’m not happy with it, but I can’t pinpoint to what is wrong. So I’ll just be done with it and move on to the next project. I do love these pics of my hubby and son, though. They had such a sweet moment together and I managed to capture it on camera. There is so much love and tenderness there, it makes me all teary-eyed.

I love the look of journaling on dymo strips, but I’m not sure I like it on my layouts. I have used mainly Diane’s Daughters papers here, and one strip each of Bazzill and BasicGrey. The stamp is from 7Gypsies. The letters in the title are from a digi kit from Shabby Princess that I’ve printed and adhered with pop dots.

Thanks for looking! Ciao!

I played along with this week’s sketch challenge over on Splitcoast. Wednesday was an insanely busy day (check out my other blog for more details, if you’re curious! ), but all I could think about in the evening, after both kids were tucked into bed, was to sit down and make a card. This is more like an obsession than a hobby! 🙂

Anyway, here’s my friend card.

I used 29th Street Market papers for this. The matting behind the image panel is purple Bazzill, although it looks black in the picture. The stamps are from Heidi Grace. I was debating whether this needed a few brads in the top right corner, but as i couldn’t decide, I left it alone. And no inked edges in sight! That must be a first for me! 🙂

Thanks for looking!

Here are some cards I made awhile back. The first is a birthday card and in hindsight I think it’s a tad too simple. The hubby wrinkled his nose at the earthy colours and asked if I couldn’t afford to use paper that wasn’t torn at the edges. Nice.

The other card is for a friend who had a baby girl. I’m just not a “pink” person, but I tried my best.

Thanks for looking!

More blog candy

I’m normally not a gal who runs after all the blog candy out there, but I just happened upon this blog and the things this girl does with a card and some vintage images are AMAZING! Wow. Anyway, she has some great blog candy to give away and here’s a link to it.

Ciao!

It’s been a lazy weekend as far as scrapping is concerned. I’ve had an icky sore throat and a cough to boot and it has been all I could do to care for the kiddos. Anyway, feeling a little better this evening so I made this LO for the sketch challenge on Creative Scrappers. Talk about last minute, as they put up each week’s sketch on Sundays… ha, just went over there and they have already posted the next sketch. ACK, I’m always running behind! LOL!

This sketch is great and I think I will use it many more times, I think it would also look great flipped over for a landscape photo.

The title is My Girl in a Blue Dress and the journaling is about how all the dresses she gets from her aunts are in girly colours and the only two dresses I’ve bought for her have been blue. I’ve used only Crate Papers here, some Primas, brads from Reprint, lots of Color Box chestnut oan ink. All edges are distressed and inked.

This photo of my precious little girl has got to be one of my favorites right now. I love how happy and mischievous she looks… 😀

Thanks for looking!

I made this card for a friend’s baby boy, who turns one in a few days. The bear holding the arrow is hand drawn and cut out and then sponged with Ranger’s distress inks. The number 1 is also hand cut and sponged. The arrow says “Lucas is turning” . The gatefold card is made with Crate papers and the butterfly, train and teddy bear (inside the card) are from a baby stamp set from Fiskars. The balloon stamp is from Reprint. They are colored with Koh-i-Noor pencils and blended with a Dove Blender. The smudge in the upper corner inside the card is my daughter’s contribution to the card: a nice nudge at mommy’s elbow… 🙂

Thanks for looking! Ciao tutti!
