School Colors

Yup, I am sad to say, it's back to school here for us tomorrow. It will be nice to get back into a routine, but man, I am going to miss our lazy days.

Over on the Cards In Envy Blog there is a new challenge. Use school colors on your A2 card and make sure it is flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Our school colors are black, orange and white. So I decided to use some old Echo Park Halloween papers. Here is what I came up with:
I decided to go with a graduation card since it seems I never have enough of those come June.
Stop on over to the CIE Blog and see what the rest of the DT did with this challenge.

Scrap & PLay!

Once again- hey there!
I think this is my last post for today.
It's the first of the month which means a new challenge at Scrap & Play is up!
I used Carta Bella Cool Summer and American Crafts lined paper for this layout of Austin at the lake having fun while camping:

Here are a few close ups:

I added some watercolor and string:

Make A Wish!

Happy Saturday!
It's my last day up on the Just Imagine Blog today.  With school starting on September 2, that means I head back to work:(  Where oh where did the summer go? I need to lighten my scrappy load a little and I have been with them for quite some time, so I decided to let someone else work with their fabulous punches and circle cutter.
Today I am sharing a birthday card I made. I used the Kreaxions 4 in 1 Punch #910 to punch my border and added the negative piece (pink) to the top of my border to give it more depth. I used October Afternoon Cakewalk:

Here is a close up of the border:

Here is the punch I used:
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sunday, Sunday!

Happy Sunday peeps!
Just popping in real quick to share a layout I created using a sketch from Scrap Our Stash. I have been trying to use my stash and this is the perfect place to find challenges to use it!

I used Echo Park Splash for my background paper and the rest is Woodland Park by Echo Park.
I used photos of the kids on our trip to Canada. Bev's granddaughter is in the one on the right.

I scrunched the ribbon while stitching:

I added a few butterfly stickers on pop dots:

I love the triangles on this fun sketch:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Super Saturday!

It's my day up on the Just Imagine Blog today.
I am sharing a birthday card I made for my niece. I used the fabulous circle cutter to cut a 3" circle. I used Stencil B and marked just the short lines. I then punched every other line with the Kreaxions 4 in 1 Punch # 916. I also used the same punch, with no insert, to punch a border. I added part of that border to the top of the card to make a pennant:

Here are a few close ups:

I used October Afternoon Cakewalk  collection. Isn't it fun?!
Here are the Kreaxions tools I used:
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!

Now I am off to figure out what's for dinner.....
Enjoy your weekend!


Hey there!

Got Ya!

Happy Friday!
Just wanted to share a layout I created using the August 15 sketch at Stuck?! Sketches. I used Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas along with a burlap bow from Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquet collection on this silly layout of Austin Christmas Eve. He unwrapped his gift from Connie and put the bow on his head. He saw me grabbing the camera and took it off, but not before I got a few pics:)

Here are a few close ups:

                                                   Hope you have an awesome weekend!
