Sketch Challenge SC37

Come join me over at Soul Scrappers for my latest sketch challenge SC37

Here is my page I created for the layout.

Saturday, May 7, 2011


This is a page dedicated to my sister Brenda. I'm sure when I told her that I was going to make a scrapbook page of her in her bathing suite, she had fear in her eyes! This is a photo I took of Brenda just this past December when we were in Miami.

The page I created was based on a challenge over at Soul Scrappers hosted by the wonderful Lean. The challenge is TC33 .

Mostly everything used here is stampin up. I had fun using the new doily punch featured in the summer mini catalogue.

Just Beachy

Here is my two page layout I did for my good friend Joan. I used beach sand on each of the pages as I think it gives a great effect on a summer page. Thank for looking.

Embossing folder

This was a cute card we made in stamp class. The circles are punched out of cardstock and glued to the espresso cardstock. Then you fun the whole card front thru your big shot using an embossing folder. The result looks like you have a textured dsp.

My First ATC

This is my first ever Artist Trading Card. I was in a swap over at Soul Scrappers and this was my entry. The theme was "love". At first I didn't really know what to do with the card as they are about the size of a baseball card. It was suggested to me to use them as embellishments for a full size card or for a scrapbook page so I thought perfect. I'll give it a try. The card you create is suppose to be a small piece of art that you created using whatever. It was fun to give this a go and now I am entering another swap for May. I'm looking forward to seeing what the other swapping ladies have created.

All products used here are Stampin Up, old & new

Place in the Sun pg 2

Here is my second page for "my place in the sun " online free classes. This page was to take photos of what I see out my backdoor. Well it was snowing so I thought some of the snow covers summer items looked nice with the snow. They are my chairs & flower pot. The third photo is of my dog Lulu. I often see her staring in the house when I put her out back for some fresh air.

Swap card # 1

I was in a card swap recently and this was one of the cards I received. This card was made by Kathy House. I really like the idea she had of using the embossing folder to make a design on part of the front and back. It really gives a beautiful effect.

Colours used here are so saffron, real red, marina mist & vanilla. Of course everything is from my favorite company, Stampin Up!!

Funny picture

I was outside taking some photos of my scrapbooking pages when I decided to take a photo of Lulu bathing herself in the sun. It wasn't until later that I noticed my cat peering through the door spying on us. I just thought it looked funny. Thanks for stopping by.

My Crafty Sister

This is my sister Amy. Her son Taren's binder for school fell apart and instead of buying him a new one, she decided to create a fun binder that he would love. I think it turned out very cool.

So what Amy did here was take the binder apart. She took off the front and back & kept the middle part with the metal rings and also the cardboard front and back . With the cardboard she cut out different skateboarding words & images and modgepodged them to the cardboard. One picture here shows some photos I took of Taren. My Olympus camera has a feature called drawing. It's where you take a picture of someone and it creates a drawing of them. That is what Amy used to put on the front of the binder.

After modgepodging everything, Amy used duct tape to assemble everything back together. Lucky Uncle Richard had some red duct tape which went so well with all the images.

I think this was a fun clever project Amy created and Taren loved it.
