Mojo 119 sketch challenge

I must admit, I love the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Sometimes I will sit down to my table in my craft room and I have a hard time deciding what to do and sometimes I just don't feel that creative. Mojo Monday makes it easy for me to create a card. They give me a sketch and all I have to do is come up with a stamp and paper.

Here I have created some baby cards. I don't specifically have a baby stamp set but I do love this deer so I thought I could use it. Enjoy your day.

Paper: Pretty in Pink, or Bashful Blue, vanilla and choc. chip
Ink: Choc. Chip, Pretty in Pink or Bashful Blue
Stamps: Little Angel & Four friends (I think it's called)
Punches: none
Misc: circle scissor cutter, big shot, scallop die, texturz plates and vanilla ribbon

Scrapbooking from Christmas' Past

These are two scrapbooking pages I did years ago but I thought I would share them since the theme is Christmas. It's fun to look at our pages and see the old memories. I wish I could scrapbook all of life's memories but I guess that's not possible so I will just have to settle for a few.

Merry Christmas everyone.

My Digital Studio

These are my first attempts at the Digital Studio that Stampin Up offers. It was fun to create my own pages. Honestly it did take me awhile to get going and get use to the system. I plan to spend more time creating with it.

The pages are both of my neice Elizabeth. I enjoy her coming over to visit as we get to do "girl stuff". Making the dog biscuits for Christmas was a fun time. Elizabeth loved mixing and cutting the shapes out. The results, Lulu and her dog friends loved them!

Cookies in a Jar

These are my cookies in a jar I made this year. I think they make a quick & easy gift. We all have those people in our lives that we would like to get a little something but not sure what to get so these cookies in a jar are great for those people. I got this recipe from the bakerella website. It's the cowboy cookies. I just changed the pink M&M's to Christmas ones instead.

Bride Speciality Paper technique

I cannot take credit for the design of this card. I found it on Stampin Up but I recreated it as I wanted to show you a cool technique using the Bride Speciality Paper. All you need is an ink colour and a sponge dauber. Just rub the inked up dauber over the paper and done!! Simple and easy. You can use any colour so ideas are endless. Hope you have some fun trying this out!

Up Up and Away

this was a card that I made for my stamp class in Sept. I saw the concept of the circle pattern paper on another blog so I thought I would give it a try. I punched out 5 circles, folded each circle in half and layered them on top of each other, then glued them to my stamped balloon image. I also sanded my old olive card front once I ran it through the big shot. Just makes the impression stand out more. All products are stampin up

Ink: rich razzelberry, black
Stamps: sweet centers, tiny tiny verses

Ok so I have been away for a bit because I was enjoying the sun and surf in Oregon. It's such a beautiful part of the world and I had a great time camping and enjoying the sites. Now I am back and need to get stamping!
