A little bit Patriotic

We R Memory Keepers had a tutorial for an adorable banner on their blog.  This is my patriotic Twist on it.  I have the banner punch board so I used it for the banner pieces.  I used this tutorial to make the pinwheels.  The circles I cut with my good old coluzzle templates and knife.


June counterfeit kit layouts

I have made 4 layouts using my June kit. Hoping to do a few more.


June 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge

  I have not done a counterfeit kit challenge for a long time. But with summer here I want to scrap and use up some of my supplies.  This months challenge was to pick one of Basic Grey's new lines and create a kit based on it.  I chose the Barista Line.  Love the freshness of it.  Here is what it looks like.

Here is the kit I created from my stash.  So many lovely things.  I may have gone overboard on the alphas :D

I am also doing a summer scrapbook challenge on a Facebook group I am on so I hope to use this kit for many of those challenges.


Christmas Cards Day 2

Today's card is inspired by this pin - Snow globe card.

I used a cute file by Samantha Walker Designs and My Silhouette Cameo.

This is how it turned out - pretty adorable.

   The pattern papers are from an older Cricut paper pad. The acetate sheet is from product packaging and there are little gems in the center of the snowflakes that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.


Christmas Cards

It's Christmas card making time around here. This year I have decided to make an eclectic mix of cards rather than the same card multiple times.  I have so many ideas saved on my Christmas Card Pinterest board that I want to give a try.  I am going to be doing themes for each week  - this week is snowmen.  I have 8 snowmen cards pinned to be inspired by.

Here are the cards I made today.

Here are the cards that I pretty much flat out copied.

They turned out way cute and I am excited to make more cards.


OWH - Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Happy Memorial Day weekend Crafty friends.  This weekend Operation Write Home is having a patriotic blog hop! If you do not know about this organization go check it out!  I made a birthday card for the challenge using  OWH sketch #169.  I used an adorable stamp from Inky Impressions called Independence Day Lili.  Please be sure to click on the OWH blog hop banner below to hop along!


Operation Write Home cards.

One of my goals for this year is to make and ship cards to OWH - this is a great organization that provides cards to deployed soldiers so they can send them to their loved ones with personal notes. 

The Disney cards below I made using the sketch from this week on the OWH blog.

The mug of hugs cards I made for a clean and simple challenge on 2peas. I made 4 of these cards to send to OWH.   It feels good to have gotten off to a good start on these. I am waiting for my OWH logo stamps to arrive so I can stamp the back of these.
