A SEI Card...

Hi there! I haven't gotten to scrap the past 2 days, and I'm having withdrawals!! :P So today I'm going to share with you a card I made a couple of weeks ago with some SEI Corinne supplies. Aren't those hot air balloons so cute?! They were rub-ons, but I added some Stickles to them. And those awesomely cute clouds in the background? That was part of the run-on package! I thought they were too cute not to use!

Redone Scrappy School Projects

I had some things that I wanted to "redo" for school, so I made sure I took pics to share with you here on my blog! :)

The first thing I did was cover plain composition notebooks with patterned paper. I used Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely mini stack on the left one and Echo Park's Splash mini stack for the right one.

Birthday Lunch Layout

Just sharing a layout I made the other day...

I have had this Sassafras paper for a long time (the blue paper flower and stripe) and I just haven't had any inspiration to use it! I just put it in the back of my paper file and didn't think about it. Well, we eventually found rub-ons to match the paper (We didn't even know they mathched when we bought them!) and so that kinda gave me an incentive to use the paper!

Lately, I have been being adventurous and matching the paper on my own! So I used some American Crafts and Cosmo Cricket paper along with my Sassafras paper!

I started this page with a Sketch Generations sketch. I altered it a bit to accomidate the number of pictures I wanted to use.
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Sassafras, Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts; Stickers: Jillibean Soup; Flowers: Petaloo; Brads: The Paper Studio; Letter Thickers: American Crafts; Ink: Colorbox; Pen: American Crafts

My dad's Birthday Card

This past Saturday was my dad's birthday, and so I whipped up a card for him really quickly on Saturday morning! (Hey- nothing like last minute, is there?!)

I broke out my new Nikki Sivils "Henry's Brillance" mini papers, and I really like the new "guy" look! I usually use my old faithful "Joy Ride" paper from Cosmo Cricket, but to be honest, I'm getting tired of it! (gasp! I'm getting tired of COSMO CRICKET!) There is one little Cosmo Cricket tid bit on here though- the "for my dad" sentiment is from the line called "'Lil Man."
Supplies: Card Base: The Paper Studio; Patterned Paper: Nikki Sivils; Journaling Card: Cosmo Cricket; Brads: Basic Grey; Twine: Etsy; Ink: Colorbox

If I am ever delivering a card personally, I usually put the name of the person it's going to in stickers. I love this sticker font from American Crafts...
Oh, by the way, I got the card design from the Paper Crafts Best of Card Creations 2010 book:

Welcome to the Sketch Blog Hop!

Woo hoo! Welcome to my stop on the blog hop! If you haven't come here from Shanon's blog, then go back to Amanda's blog and start hoppin' from there.

Ok- now that we've gotten that part out of the way, I get to show you my layout I made from Amanda's awesome sketch! My little sister, Laura, and I love to dress up, and we hadn't done it for a while so we did it and had a little mini photo shoot. You can totally tell Laura is more photogenic than me! Haha! (Well, I think she is anyway...) Laura's the one with the pink flowers.

For this layout, I just got some papers that I thought coordinated together, and used them! I rarely do that, so I'm very proud of myself for stretching my creativity and NOT being OCD about all the papers matching "exact!" :D Enjoy my page--



Supplies: Patterned Paper: American Crafts, Teresa Collins, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye; Mist: Tattered Angels; Letter Stickers: BoBunny; Pen: American Crafts; Other: pom pom trim, flowers, brad






And of course, this wouldn't be complete without a giveaway! I have a special CK magazine, 2 sets of AWESOME American Crafts Thickers (one chipboard, the other foam) and then a Cosmo Cricket Blackboard album. All you have to do is leave a comment and for an extra entry, become a follower of my blog! If you are already a follower, leave a comment telling me that too! :) I will draw a winner on Sunday morning August 21, 2011 and post the winner here.

And now you need to head on to Mandi's blog! I'm sure she has some awesomeness ready to show you!
