Our Little Pumpkin

Hello and welcome to my blog today.  I scrapped this page of my niece. She is just so precious!  I dug deep into some old Creative Memories product. I found these great pumpkin brads in my stash. I am pretty sure I acquired those second hand.  I alternated paper buttons from the CM Cheerful Power palette and those pumpkin brads.

Here is the sketch I used from Pinterest.

Another look at this cuteness overload!

Here's the cut pieces before assembly.

Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea and Atlantic Hearts Sketch

Welcome to my latest inspiration for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I used my new Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea collection along with a sweet little mermaid image.

Here is this week's sketch.

I used sheer ribbons for the two strips on the left of the sketch.

I colored this image a while ago and when this paper collection arrived, I knew it would be perfect.

I had some real dried starfish in my stash.

Karen Burniston Tiny Gnome Birthday Card

Welcome to my blog, today's card was a birthday card for a friend's dad.  I had a lot of fun creating several different gnomes.  I still have a couple more in my stash.  The others are made with different papers.  I loved the fun dots on this little guy.  I paired him with a simple background accentuating the funky color palette. 

I used the die as a stencil to ink the details of the gnome hair.

I can't wait to do something a little more involved with these little guys.  This card did serve it's purpose and I hope brought a smile.

Graphic 45 Alice's Tea Party and Atlantic Hearts Sketch

It's time again for another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  As soon as I saw this sketch I knew the exact banner I wanted to use. These die cut banners are from Karen Burniston.  I also knew I wanted to use my brand new Graphic 45 Alice's Tea Party collection.

Here's the sketch.

I created a cluster using the coordinating Graphic 45 Alice's Tea Party Emphemera pack and Recollections stickers.  

I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  I die cut it with the longest of the Kindred Stamps Sentiment Strip dies. I added ivory pearls along the banner.
