You Inspire Me CC69

Loving getting all these challenges done today! Sitting and watching the snow (again) come down is so peaceful while crafting.  I created this card for the sketch challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

The sketch was a lot of fun and the card came together really quickly.

I did move a few things a bit but all in all I stuck to the original design.  The funny thing is, is that once I had the card put together I realized that I put the elements on backwards.  So my fold is on the wrong side of the card lol.  I'm left handed so I'm going to use that as my excuse and move on.

I used my Jillibean soup kit again to create this card.  It was out on my desk after making a layout so I figured I'd just keep going.  

Love Dream "Pick 3 Feb 2019"

I am loving this picture of my husband and I from our trip to Mexico.  This was our first ever "BIG" trip together as well as our first one out of the country.  I was so nervous to get on a plane and leave my kiddos home.

It was well worth the nerves though.  We had such a great time just relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the ocean and the free drinks lol.  Coming home was so hard! I took this pic on our second to last day out by the ocean.  I knew I wanted to get a larger size so I could scrap it!

I used the Pick 3 challenge for Feb over at Soul Scrappers.  I've really enjoying "re-finding" this great site.

There was a list of 7 different items to choose from.  I decided on the 3 different patterned papers, sequins, glitter paper and die cut letters. I did use several different Kiwi Lane templates to create the background and accents.  I love this paper kit by Jillibean Soup! Everything came together really easily and I'm now going to find a frame and hang this up in my house.

Stencil Blending Fun

Good morning everyone! I watched a fun tutorial over at Stampnation about stencil blending and couldn't wait to give it a try.  She shows using the same colors on white and dark cardstock.

I do have to say that with the colors I chose I like the white better. I'm just not to fond of the dark one that I made.  I'm going to give it another try with different colors and see how I like it.

Beautiful Smile

I found this beautiful pictures of my niece from when she had her senior pictures taken.  I totally forgot I even had copies of these.  I was trying to find some photos to do this sketch and these were perfect.  This weeks sketch for Sketch~N~Scrap is a great challenge.  I have several more photos so there will be a second page coming.

Sometimes I still can't believe she's already out of school.  She's an adult and even has children. I love this young lady so much! I couldn't think of a better title that the one I have on here.  It says it all. 

I pulled out my Kiwi Lane templates again for this layout.  I recently got some new ones and this was the perfect layout to give them a try.

Happy Anniversary! TSOT #395

Hi everyone and welcome to another challenge at Try Stampin' On Tuesday! This weeks sketch is a fun one and have a great optional theme that everyone can do.

Optional theme: ribbon or twine

I really had a lot of fun making this card.  When I saw the sketch I knew exactly what stamp set I was going to use!

I love this stamp set from Catherine Pooler.  This came out in her recent SOA box and it's really a versatile stamp set.  I used light blue ink and a sponge to create the sky background.

I recently joined a scrapbook kit club and am loving the amazing samplings of products you get each month.  I created this layout below using The Scraproom's January Jillibean soup You make miso happy collection and The Scraproom's February jump start layout.

Here is my finished layout. I have these old pics of the day my daughter got her braces off.  She was so happy to be done with them! I just wish these photos would have turned out a bit better.
