If Anybody Out There Is Watching....

Tell me what you think of the new blog layout??? I'm undecided! I need opinions! I think it's super cute...but maybe a little too busy?? Tell me what you think! Pin It Now!


Challenge Time!

This card is for the Stamp Something challenge to use the sketch they provided. Visit the Stamp Something blog to see the sketch and play along. Also, it was my turn over in the Unity Stamp forum to come up with the You Shouldn't Have Left Us Alone Challenge. Not too many people play these challenges, so who knows how much longer they are going to be around?! So if you want to play, get over to the Unity forum on Splitcoast and post your card. This was my challenge:

You will be making a card using your least favorite color as the primary color (no just throwing it on in a small spot where you can barely see it!), use two embellishments that are your least favorite, and use a stamp that hasn't seen any ink yet (or if by some miracle all your stamps have been inky, use one that hasn't seen much ink).

Here's my sample card. Don't let this shock you, but I did NOT choose Stickles as my least favorite embellishment. I choose eyelets and a ribbon that I didn't care much for, but it came in the package. One of my least favorite colors is purple (don't shoot me!), and I had a few stamps from the May KOM that needed some ink still!

Supplies Used: Another Sweet Day (May KOM), Everyday Adorable, Kraft cardstock, Crate DP, Making Memories ribbon and eyelets, Word Window Punch, edge distresser Pin It Now!

Can I get a HIP HOP (hangover)?!

I DID it! I participated in a Hip Hop challenge for the first time in ages. I hope you're not tired of my layouts, because here's another! I'm not sure I'm sold on it...but it's good enough! The challenge was to use kraft or a form of kraft.

Best Friends

I did this layout for the Limelight Sketch Challenge. We had to use the sketch and also bling it up with rhinestones. I went one step further and added Stickles! This is the second time this week I've used them...See,they are growing on me!! The sketch from Limelight just screamed "LAYOUT!!!" to me, so that's what I did. These are two of my nieces -- aren't they sweet?!

Supplies Used: love, etc (Jan. KOTM), Little Me, fresh beginnings (April KOTM) -- All Stamps are from Unity Stamp Co., Coredinations Nostalgia cardstock, Basic Grey DP and chipboard stickers, rhinestones, stickles, Primas, Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing Border Punch (say THAT 10 times fast!)

Two Peas in a Pod

I made a layout just for me...it wasn't for a challenge or from a sketch. I CAN do it! The chipboard on this layout is covered with Creamy Caramel ink and then I stamped the words "Sweet Pea" and the image of the pea pod on them. You can't see it very well in the picture. I need to take a close up picture, but trust me, it's very cute! :)

Supplies Used: Little Me (Unity Stamp Co.), Basic Grey Chipboard, Bo Bunny Patterned Paper, Coredinations Nostalgia Cardstock, American Crafts Gingham Ribbon, Spare Parts Grommets, Creamy Caramel and Glorious Green Classic SU Ink.

More Clean and Simple

I needed some inspiration last night to get a scrapbook page done. Nothing was coming to me and I was getting tired of sitting and staring at an empty table. I have loved Jenn Buck's Clean and Simple scrapbook challenges, but haven't participated much, so I decided to go back and use an old sketch of hers (I had already used this week's on the last layout I shared!). Check out all of her sketches here. I used #5. Notice it's not a perfect copy, just a starting point to get me going!
Supplies Used: Sassy Alphabet (Unity Stamp Co), Vintage Coredinations Cardstock, Martha Stewart Ribbon, Bo Bunny Journaling Block and Patterned Paper, Buttons, Stickles (YUP! STICKLES!) Pin It Now!


Clean, Simple, and Monochromatic

Last night I had a bright idea about 9:00. I was going to combine two challenges -- one was a clean and simple scrapbook challenge sketch and the other was to make something monochromatic for a guest spot on the design team for Unity Stamp Co. 9:00 is really late for me to GET an idea, especially since I had to be up bright and early today! But I decided to go ahead and put my page together. As it started coming together, I LOVED it....but then, I took a wrong turn down Scrapbook Lane and bam! At 11:30 I had to call it quits and post it. I stewed about it all night though -- and maybe I'll go back and fix it.

This is my sweet nephew, William. Isn't he a cutie?! I'm also having a terrible time with my camera and Photoshop. For some reason, I edit the photo and it looks great, I upload it and it gets all distorted and blurry. I haven't figured it out yet, but I will...just not at 11:30 at night :)
Supplies Used: another sweet day (Unity May Kit of the Month) Coredinations Vintage Cardstock, American Crafts DP, Basic Grey DP, Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, Making Memories Ribbon, Brads Pin It Now!


Live All the Days of Your Life
