I added some tangled thread to give more texture:

I added some banners and the "Oh, Hi" diecut, which I popped up with foam tape:

She Is Eighteen!

Hey there scrappy friends!
Turtle Soup is having their monthly mini crop and I posted a challenge today. My challenge is to use lots of hearts on your project.
I used the All Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe and cut it out on white cardstock. I backed the hearts with patterned paper, I think it was from Heidi Swapp. Then I used Fancy Pants True Friend and s few Simple Stories stickers. Here is my layout:

I used a few of the hearts that were cut from the file and painted them with gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine. I used my sewing machine and added some stitching:

The alphas were cut using my Cameo as well. They are Tall Type from The Cut Shoppe:

Here is a close up of the layers:

Hope you will join us for this fun mini crop!

Tickled Pink

Hey there scrappy friends!
There is a new challenge up over at Cards In Envy today!
The challenge is to create an A2 card that is mostly pink.
I used JilliBean Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup for my card:

I used mostly pink with the exception of my border and brown for my sentiment.
I fussy cut a mason jar from an AC paper and I added some stitching.
We would love to have you join us for any or all of our challenges at Cards In Envy!

You Have

Today I am sharing another one of my layouts I created on my scrappy retreat weekend.
I used Simple Stories Smarty Pants and a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap.
I nabbed the selfie of Austin and a few friends off of Facebook. This is the only way I can get pics of him lately as he hates getting his pic taken.

Here are a few close ups:

Here is the sketch:
Enjoy your day!

Hey there scrappy friends!
Today I am sharing a layout I created on my weekend scrappy retreat. I used the February 1st sketch at Stuck?! and the February stash challenge at Scrap Our Stash  along with Simple Stories Harvest Lane for this layout of Sierra with her acceptance letter from UW Eau Claire:

I loved the wood border sticker and added that at the last minute.
I popped the ribbon sticker up with pop dots to give some dimension:

I used lots of stickers from the collection:

Here is the sketch:
and the book inspiration from Scrap Our Stash:
I used the colors red, teal and white.
Thanks for stopping by!

Turtle Soup Sketch

Hi there!
Yesterday was the design team reveal for the February 1st sketch at Turtle Soup.
I used Simple Stories Take A Hike for this page of Sierra roasting a marshmallow while camping last summer:

I flipped the sketch so I could use that fun border. It was perfect for this camping page.

I added a few stickers, some mist spatters and some stitching:

I fussy cut quit a bit on this page- the happy trails to you, discover and outdoor memories were all fussy cut:

Stop on over to the forum and check out the sketch!

Good afternoon scrappy friends,
Just wanted to let you know that I have been asked to join the Sketches In Thyme design team. I am jumping for joy and look forward to working with the talented Mavens over there!

From the Heart

Hey there!
Happy February!
There's a new challenge today at Cards In Envy: From the Heart. The challenge is to create an A2 love or Valentine card.
I used Crate Paper Love Notes collection and came up with this:

This was an easy card to make- just layers and torn edges and of coarse, stitching. The sentiment is a sticker I popped up with foam tape.
Hope you will join us for this fun challenge!
