Stampin Up Grateful Bunch with Melody Ross Homespun collection

Hello today and welcome to my blog.  Anyday is a good day to tell someone they are awesome!  I pulled this awesome little card together from scraps out of my stash and a versatile stamp set.

Here's the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I found the background die cuts in my stash of unused cuts.  So that's where I began.  I then searched my stash for something that complimented the pink and silver.  That's when I ran across some scraps of Melody Ross Homespun collection. I used pieces of paper, packaging and chipboard embellishments.

To finish up the card, I stamped and punched some flowers from Stampin Up Grateful Bunch.  Finally, I added sequins and twine to the tag.

Negril Beach layout for Sketches in Thyme

While I have tons of old photos to scrap, I decided to continue with the current year photos.  These are from our January trip to Jamaica.  This was our first trip to Negril.  We spent a lot of time chilling on the beach. 

Here is the sketch for this week.  You can now find our challenge on Facebook.

Here's a close up of the cool photos and title.  I haven't used my Cricut in months but I turned it on to cut the circle loop.  It is actually not a perfect circle.  I tucked the wonky edge under the cluster so it's hard to see.

A close up of the transparent cluster.  I really like the feeling I get when I use up old product.  I have had these transparent embellishments for many years. Finally the perfect layout for some of them, I still have many more images.

Stampin Up Sweet as a Peach with Quick Quotes Farmhouse papers

Hello and welcome to my blog today. I have my latest inspiration for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I recently aquired this Stampin Up Sweet as a Peach stamp and die set.  I had worked with it at a Stamp a Stack event and fell in love.  My love for peaches is two fold.  I am a Georgia native and a big Allman Brothers Band fan.

Here's the sketch, it was so versatile, I created a stack of cards.

Personally, I can't stand the texture of peaches, I know, I know...while I can enjoy a nectarine.  I am crazy. But I know my fellow crazy ABB friends will enjoy these cards.

I really thought these Quick Quotes papers paired well with the them and colors of the peaches.  It is called Farmhouse.  I don't think it is available any longer.

Both these sentiments are from the stamp set and just perfect!
