No Sweeter Kisses

No Sweeter Kisses:

I recently got some family shots done by CaptureMePhotos.  This particular photo was one of my favorites and just couldn't wait to scrap it.  I'm usually at least a year behind when it comes to scrapping events.

I followed a sketch by Sketch n Scrap that I pinned on Pinterest.  The PP are from Jillibean Soup.  The embellishment in the lower right corner is a verve stamp although the "I love you" is from another set of stamps that I have.  The flowers were all handmade by me.

Nothin' SweetEr than this boys Kiss

This flower was handmade by me and inspired from morepaperthanshoes.blogspot.com

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to a special little girl!!  I made this card for my coworker's daughter who is celebrating her first birthday today!!!  I really enjoyed getting out my peachy keen stamps to make this card.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot.  I followed a sketch by Mojo Monday.  Because this card is going to a toddler, I kept it really simple.

All little kids like balloons right??

Die Cut bear and balloon are both from Cricut: Create a Critter.

SOUS DT Card Sketch

Hello and welcome to September's second card sketch design for SOUS.  This sketch was designed by Leah Schaeffer.

I have three coworkers this year who have had or are having a baby girl!! That's a lot of pinkness!!  I made this card with my coworker in mind.

The diecut bear and clouds was a weekly freebie by treasureboxdesigns.com  The "welcome baby" stamp is a new stamp from a set I purchased from vervestamps.com

I inked the clouds with chalk ink.  I also inked the bear with chalk ink and followed that with chalk for dimension.  The eyes were done with white gel roll pen, chalk, and micron pen.

Thank you for stopping by today!!

Acres of Fun!!

This LO goes along with the story of the previous LO.  Same place and same time.  A while back I made the barn for a swap and this is first time I felt I could use it.  It describes the day perfectly and is really a simply die cut from svgcuts.com

I also just kind of made up the LO as I went along.  I was anxious just to be done with it.  LOL - can't be "in love" with them all.

Thanks for looking!!

Happy Fall!

Fall is nearly here everyone!! My favorite season simply cause it's cooler and lovelier.  How about I keep my allergies out of this though, huh?

This session I want to start with a trip I took last year with my son's daycare.  It was so much fun and I'm so very glad I was able to go.  My next blog will continue the story even though it is not "technically" a two page layout.  I REALLY don't do two page layouts.  *shrugs*

Sometimes it is difficult to blend the "old" with the "new".  Old meaning die cuts, and new meaning distressing, inking etc etc and also explains why this LO looks so very different from others I've done.  But I love die cuts and will continue to use them where ever I can.

I used a combination of papers from Imaginesce line and others I randomly had.
Here is the sketch I loosely followed from studiocalico.typepad.com:

The scarecrow and pumpkins are from myscrapchick.com The leaves are from a punch.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

SOUS Project

It's that time of month again.  SOUS has a new card sketch challenge this week.  Here's what I came up with.

Happy Belated Birthday Mom!!

Yep, this card is for my mom and I'm VERY LATE getting it to her.  Invested in some Verve Stamps and Dies last week and am happy with their service and products.  I thought it was about time I had some sentiment stamps to work with on my cards.  Better late than never right??  Thank you for visiting!

Flowers are handmade using SCAL file.  Sentiment and die is a Verve stamp.  Embossing done with my cuttlebug.
