May Project Life Cards

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!
It is rainy and stormy here so I'm staying inside and getting some crafting done.
I managed to make some more Project Life cards for a future PL layout using the May sketches from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style Challenge Blog.

I pulled out some fun Polka Dot cardstock and a couple of old sticker sheets to create my cards and once again I had a blast making these cards. If you guys are into pocket style scrapbooking, you really should check out the Sketches In Thyme PL Style Challenge Blog, I love their sketches. 

Here is a look at each sketch and the pocket card I made:

Here is a look at all four cards together:


Ok so last month when I played along, I posted where I was at in each of my three PL albums. I thought it would be kinda neat if I kept myself accountable each month by posting my progress. Here are my stats that I posted last month per album (album year/month currently on):

 2015: November
2016: June
2017: March

Well, I did not work on any of my albums so I have no progress to update. I am hoping there will be a change next month. Fingers crossed!! lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Supply List:
--Cardstock: White (Georgia Pacific)
--Patterned paper: Basics (Pebbles)
--Misc.: Hello Summer Stickers (Echo Park), Black Micron Pen, Pretty Pink Posh Sequins

Supplies were the same for all cards with the exception of added patterned paper from Hello Sunshine (Pink Paislee & Sticker from Journaling Tidbits (Teresa Collins) for Sketch #70

Stick It Down May Card Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends!
 I hope your day is off to a marvelous start!
 Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the Stick It Down Challenge Blog
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog. They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right?? The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals of the design team's interpretations throughout the month. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

Here is another peek at the card sketch for May 2017:



Here is the card that I created based on the sketch:


When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a long/tall card. I created my card base out of a piece of 7.5" x 9" cardstock. Once folded my card measures, 3.75" x 9". I stamped that cute little Penny Black image onto some white cardstock and colored her with my copic markers.  I stamped my greeting with some chalk ink and drew some lines around the border with a purple micron pen. I popped up my white panel with some foam tape. 

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog & take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :)

You Are Out Of This World!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the
 Dies R Us Store

I have been seeing a lot of Galaxy type backgrounds lately and I thought it would be fun to give it a try and create a card with this technique. 

I started out by gathering all my distress inks that I wanted to use.

The colors of distress inks that I used were: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. 

Next I stamped my images from the Lawn Fawn Out Of This World stamp set and colored them in with my Copic markers. Please forgive the dark pictures, it was night when I was creating this card.


Next up, I used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Out Of This World dies to cut out my stamped images.


They line up perfectly!

Here is a look at my finished card:


To create my moon, I free hand cut a domed shape and used a hole punch to cut out some "craters". I placed some cardstock behind the moon a little bit darker so that the holes had some dimension. I popped up my astronaut and planets with some foam tape and added a bit of shimmer to my vellum for just a bit of sparkle. 

Here is a look at the Dies R US products that I used on my card today:

Hey crafty friends!

Today starts a new challenge over at the 

Our sponsor for challenge #69 is:


Here is a peek at the cookie inspiration photo for this challenge:


I used a digi stamp that was provided by My Besties for my card.


After I had my image printed out, I colored her in with my Copic markers. Once she was all colored, I used a Spellbinder frame die to cut her out. I added some ribbon and my greeting to my card front and then popped up my image with some foam tape. I added some wink of stella for a little shimmer in a few places and added some pearls and a fun little bow to finish off my card.

Flying by with a Hello

*This post contains affliate links, which means I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase using any of the links in this post (at NO additional cost to you). Thank you for your support!*

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I love sending out happy mail but have been slacking lately on actually getting cards in the mail. So I thought I would make a few Hello cards to have on hand and hopefully be better about sending out some mail! Anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me?? lol!


I made an A2 card base out of some Kraft card stock and layered some Stitched Rounded Rectangles on top. Isn't that plaid paper from the Be Brave paper pad awesome! I then added a strip of kraft cardstock and a little white scallop that I cut out using one of the borders from the Scallop Borders set. I cut out two circles using the Stitched Circle Dies. One from some blue cardstock and another from some adorable cloud paper from the Take Flight paper pad. I colored that sweet little doggy from the Plane Sweet stamp set and used the coordinating Plane Sweet dies to cut him and the banner out. I popped them both up with some foam tape and drew a little black line to connect them. I think it came out so super adorable!!

Hello Friend

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 



My card is also for the day 1's homework over at the Online Card Class Sparkle & Shine course.

Day 1 was all about glitter. I decided to do the technique that was coloring glitter cardstock with alcohol markers. 


I had some left over white glitter cardstock in my stash. I took some BIC markers and just started coloring in diagonal stripes across my paper. I took my Hello Dies and cut out the shadow from the glitter cardstock and the HELLO from some black cardstock. I used the one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies and adhered my glittery hello to the front. I used the Hello Friend stamp set to stamp the friend under the big hello. I added some polka dot vellum behind my white rectangle and popped it up with some foam tape onto my black card base. I cut a small strip from the left over colored glitter paper and added it along the bottom. I finished off my card with some sequins. I love how sparkly the card is and not a lot of glitter rubs off since I didn't use loose glitter. Win!

You're So Brilliant!

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday 😀

I am currently participating in the new class at Online Card Classes called Sparkle & Shine.

Today (day 2) was all about foiling! 
I pulled out my Mini Minc Machine and happily did my homework.


I had some Heidi Swap Minc paper 6x6 paper pads and some little embellishments that I decided to foil up for my card. I created a A2 black card base and used some gold Deco Foil to foil that fun triangle cardstock. I trimmed it down to size and added it to my base. I heat embossed my greeting with some white embossing powder onto a strip of scrap black cardstock and added that to my card. I ran that fun little light bulb through my Minc with more gold foil. I layered it on top of a black circle that was layered on top of some gold shimmery vellum and popped everything up with some foam tape. I finished it off with some sequins. 

This is a really bad picture but I wanted to take a close up to try and capture some of the shine that my card has so that you have an idea just how shiny it is. 


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Supply List;
--cardstock: Neenah & Recollections vellum
--Patterned Paper: Heidi Swapp

Pumpkin Patch Layout

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a marvelous Monday!

I was able to work on another layout today (gasp!)!
Sketch N Scrap is having a month long celebration in honor of National Scrapbook Day on Facebook and I decided to play along and make a layout based on one of their sketches.

Here is the sketch I used:


Here is a look at my layout:


I decided to finally create a layout based on some photos from last year. My beautiful daughter was visiting some friends and while she was there, they decided to go to the pumpkin patch. These are some of the photos my daughter texted to me of her. I used some wood grain paper, cream & orange cardstock. The rest of the paper that I used came from the Autumn Leaves stack from DCWV. I used my Cricut to cut out my title and some stitched circle dies to create my little pumpkin. I finished it off by adding a white doodled line along the perimeter.

I will also be entering this into the PDE Linky Party #171

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
