Sketch Challenge

Wow, I can't believe it's been over 2 years since I last updated.  Life has picked up and my spare time scrapbooking has diminished BUT I've made it a new goal to get back into it.  And what better way to do that than complete a sketch challenge.  These sketches are from the stamping rooster, designed from a friend of mine whose style I've really become to admire.  She takes texture and embellishing to a whole new level.  My goal is to get 4 pages scrapped a month and I did 3 this weekend.  Whoohoo for me!  (photos were taken from my phone so not the best)

Just for fun

I managed to squeeze in two layouts last weekend. The photos are a year old, glad I got them scrapped. I dug out my Tim holtz flower dies for this one and grabed a mix of different scraps. Slowly making a dent.

Purse gift card holder tutorial

Hello there, been a rough busy month so going to start sharing some older projects I never got around to posting.  This tutorial was my last DT assignment for 3SB.  I've had a great time being on the design team but looking forward to the break of kit deadlines and enjoying the summer with my kids.

With the end of school year approaching along with graduations and celebrations for gift giving, I thought this quick and easy purse gift card holder would come in handy.  The best part is all it requires is a few things from your scrap pile.

3 Scrappy Boys March 2012 Trio Kit
My Minds Eye Diecut Sheet:             Notes bracket journaling box
Multi Chevron:                                   5.5”x 6”  
Nostalgia:                                           3.5”x 3.5”
Ribbon                                               10”

Cut around the MME bracket journaling diecut to use as a template.
Trace it onto the Nostalgia 3.5” x 3.5” piece and cut out. (Spellbinders Label One shapes also works well or any bracket shape from your supplies)

Next score the bracket shape at 1 ¼” on both sides and fold at score lines.

 Fold Chevron 5.5” x 6” piece in half on the longer 6” side so now your folded piece is 5.5” x 3”.
Line up the scored bracket piece which is the top of your purse onto the middle of the folded bottom half, then cut about 1.25”at a slight angle on both top sides.

With a corner rounder, punch the bottom edges of the purse.
Next adhere the top piece onto the back of the bottom piece on the scored line.
Punch two holes on the edges of the scored middle section and tie your ribbon onto it.

Add a button to the front and embellish to your desire.

To keep the purse from opening, adhere some velcrow, magnet, or foam pop dots under the flap.Adhere a gift card inside and it’s ready to go.

Round and Round we Go

Last summer we took a family trip to Seattle and stopped by this little park on the way to the waterfront. It didn't have much in there but this little merry go round. The kids loved to have their Uncle Ryan and grandpa push them round and round. They could play on it all day long.

Sweet Seven

My baby girl turned seven this weekend, where does the time go? We had a party at home and she invited all her classmates. They did potatoe sack races, egg games, silly photo booth pictures, and enjoyed the nice weather outside on the swingset. She received many toys of which her favorite was the monster high dolls....something her mother does not understand. Love you baby girl, hope your day was special!

3SB March Reveal

3 Scrappy Boy's March kits are up for sale! This month I get to play with the TRIO kit and it is fabulous! Lots of MME and LYB, and fun extras. For my first page I layered all the tags and diecuts from the kit. Aren't the row of birdies just cute?
