Sassafras Layout

Happy Monday everyone! Over on the Sassafras blog, there's a sketch challenge. I LOVE the though of getting free Sassafras goodies if I win, so I participated in the challenge. The requirements were to use 90% Sassafras products on your page. The only thing I used that WASN'T Sassafras was the blue mist on the background. It's from Tattered Angels.

April 7th Sassy Lil Sketches Card

Here's another card that I've made from a Sassy Lil Sketch! I love these Echo Park kits- they're so easy to use! The colors coordinate so well!! I'm on Spring Break at my grandma's house, and I brought some EP kits along with glue, rhinestones, etc so that I could do some challenges while I'm away. And the Echo Park kits are so so convenient to use!! I used the "Sweet Summertime" line on this card.

Frosted Designs Project- Friday Challenge

The Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs last week was to use brads on a card or layout. So, I made a card using brads. I used brads for the ends of the little "hello!" banner. I used Echo Park's "A Walk in the Park" line for this.
Thanks for looking!

Blog Hop Time!!

Hi! Welcome to the Spring 2011 Blog Hop! I am so excited to be participating in the hop this time. I have just gotten my blog up and running in the past couple of months, so come by again sometime to see what I’m up to.
If you didn’t come from Mandi’s blog, go back to Amanda’s blog and start there.
Spring time is a time when flowers bloom, and you are probably scrapping spring-y things. So, I am going to share with you an awesome technique to make some flowers for your projects! I love flowers, so it wasn’t hard to think of something to do for this blog hop. A friend gave us some coffee filters a while ago, and I instantly thought “There must be some way to make flowers out of these things!” (We aren’t coffee fans in my house, so I have all the coffee filters to myself) So, today I am sharing with you a tutorial that I made on how to make your own flowers with a simple coffee filter.

1. Flatten your coffee filter and sew a zig-zag pattern along the edge of your coffee filter.
                   *this is what it should look like after you have completed this step.* 
                        2. Fold your coffee filter in half and cut along the sewed pattern.  
3. Cut your "ring".  
4. Apply glue all over a diecut circle. Then, starting in the middle, twirl the coffee filter strip into a circle. 
5. Continue twirling. 
*when you're finished with the above step, your flower should look like this* 
6. Flatten your flower a little.  
7. Cut off any excess paper showing around the flower. 
8. Tuck in the end of your coffee filter and attach a button or other embellishment to the center of your flower. 
And here are some cards that I have made with these coffee filter flowers.


Well, now you know how to create some pretty flowers out of plain ol’ coffee filters! Now it’s time for a giveaway! I love entering giveaways on blog hops, so I thought "Why not have one of my own?" All you have to do is leave a comment AND become a follower of my blog. (please tell me in the comment if you have become a follower) I will pick a winner on Monday. April 11, 2011 to receive this cute repositionable stamp from Unity Stamp Company and a buttterfly shaped chipboard album from Colorbok and announce it here on my blog.
Thank you for stopping by! Now, hop along to Melissa’s blog. She is an awesome scrapbooker, so I’m sure you will find her projects inspiring! Have fun!

Nikki Sivils Layout/Frosted Designs Friday Challenge

 On Nikki Sivils' blog, there's a challenge to make a layout with  this sketch:

and to put something you're lucky for on it. Well, I created this layout about my sister and her miniature horse. the journaling reads "Laura is very lucky to have a furry friend!"



This is also for Frosted Designs Fabuloous Friday Challenge which is to use bling on your layout or card. I added Stickles to some of the stickers to add some glitter to the layout.

Once Upon a Sketch Layout

 I just found the Once Upon a Sketch blog, and I love their sketches! I was visiting Piradee Talvanna's blog and saw her layout made from their sketch (she's the guest designer for April), and I instantly thought I HAD to participate in the challenge! So, here's what I did with the sketch.





Here's the link to the Once Upon a Sketch blog. http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/april-1st-challenge-meet-our-guest.html

Moxie Fab World Blog Card

Right now there's a challenge on the Moxie Fab World Blog here to put a hot air balloon on a project.

Here's the card I cardlifted by Kalyn:
