Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate with Stampin Up Cool Treats and Sketch N Scrap sketch

Good morning, I am still playing along with Sketch N Scrap's 7th Birthday Bash Bingo.  Here is a sweet birthday card using Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate 6x6 paper stack. I also used Stampin Up Cool Treats stamp and matching dies.  I have had this set for a couple of years and finally pulled them out.  I found the sprinkles die was very hard to line up and I ended up coloring them with a pen.  Both of the other pieces were not completely lined up but very easy to ink the edges to cover any white edges.  I tried cutting and embossing the cone, I found simply cutting is enough as this example shows.  The crosshatch is very distinct with just one pass through the die cutting machine.

Have a Righteous Day! with The ScrapRoom's Freaky Fast Formula

I just love The ScrapRoom Blog's Freaky Fast Formula's!  I find them so much fun with which to work especially when you have some great double sided papers. I used papers from a ScrapRoom kit.  And if you read yesterday's post of the corresponding page you would know the photo is of vegetarian biscuits, sausage and gravy, yum!

I cut a 2" circle from black to spruce it up I added enamel dots.  I inked all the edges with black chalking ink.

I made a pocket out of the 4x12 piece.  I then adhered the 4x4 piece on the left side. My 4x4 just happened to be the size of a journal panel.  I used the label included in the embellishment pack of the kit to designate the menu.

Get Well Soon: Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Good morning, I have been scrapping a lot lately but it is once again time for an Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and a new card.  I recently sent out a get well card and noticed my stash was very low.  I decided it was a theme of which I need more.  On top of that, I recently purchased some used craft goodies from the Nextdoor ap.  I scored this swiss dot embossing folder and the Spellbinders Label Three dies!  I literally grabbed scraps out of a nearby bin and whipped up this card.

Here is the sketch:

The sunflowers are leftover scraps from a photo I took.  I used some brown scraps to layer the photo die cut and strip. The lighter tan paper is actually an old Creative Memories 8x8 printed scraps.  I stamped and embossed my sentiment and punched it out.

Here are both cards together.  I really like to distress edges and well I like making that embossing pop!

Lukas Nelson DCWV Glam Rock layout with Cricut cuts

Good morning and welcome to the Bitten By the Bug 2 Music challenge.  You can link up any project following the theme of music and using a Cricut machine for the next two weeks.  I have created a layout for your inspiration for this challenge.  These photos are from my vacation this past January.

The Hannah Montana Rock Star font had an optional second layer which I used to fill the stars in with a white glitter paper, a great match to the glitter stars in the paper print.

Here is a close up of the guitar from 3 Birds:  Life's a Party and the black shimmer music note from Hannah Montana.

I decided to play with my HSN Crafter's Companion purchase.  I got suckered into a CC's set last year and of course, I had to get all the subscription sets.  This Tea Party Create-a-card was one of those shipments.  There products are great but I found absolutely no instructions on this particular set, so I was really winging it considering this was the first card I produced with ANY of the Create-a-card sets.  I did make mistakes but we all know how easy it is to cover those up, I hope you can't figure out my mistakes and this card looks perfect now!

The inside of the card, great pop up but NO instructions...I have created several Karen Burniston Pop-up cards so I used that knowledge to assist.

DCWV Glam Rock Concert Buddies Layout with Sketch N Scrap sketch

Here's another layout using DCWV Glam Rock stack.  The photos are not as recent as I have been scrapping lately.  These are from an outdoor festival a couple of years ago.  It was David Shaw's Big River Get Down in Hamilton, OH.  David Shaw is the lead singer in The Revivalist.  The band behind us is the Marcus King Band.

Here is the sketch I used from Sketch N Scrap:

Here's a close up.  The Jolee's Summer Concert pack was perfect for this layout!

It's hard to see but the sticer of the hands and flames were perfect for this photo.
