The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter U

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

 For this hop we will be featuring the letter U.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

I went to a retreat last month and made the perfect page for U!  It is a playing in the rain page and I used Upside down Umbrellas to make a border for my page!  I absolutely love the way it turned out too!

 The paper is all cardstock except the Underneath part of the Umbrellas are from the retired Jubilee paper.  

The Umbrellas are cut with Pacifica Paper and the underneath is Jubilee patterned paper. The Umbrellas were cut using the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. I did trim off the handles with scissors! 

 The title was cut with the New Artistry Cricut cartridge and welded together in the Cricut Design Space.

The clouds were cut with the Artiste Cricut cartridge and coordinate with the Rain or Shine stamp set that I stamped them with!  The raindrop border I made in the Design Space using a single raindrop from the Artistry Cartridge and copy and pasting it and welding it into a border.
Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Darlys Recker.

Throwback Thursday- As for Me and My House

Using my stash is a goal I set several years ago.  Dotty was a promotional paper pack from several years ago that I bought several too many of because I loved the colors!

Fast forward to now and I used it to make this page with is from our How-to book Cherish and is called Golden Section.  Changing it up by turning the circles into squares and turning them on end created a whole new look!

The font is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge and was welded in the Design Space to make it easier to adhere to the page.

The photos are of my church Life Group's kids doing a craft about the verse, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord from Joshua 24:15.  They were making their family and decorating their house.

Urban is the greatest masculine, outdoorsy, industrial paper! 

It was so fun and easy to make these fun masculine cards!  

This one is made using only the paper cut in strips and then dovetail ends and matching ends.

I also used a Durable Artisan Stud and the Crazy Good stamp set to add the sentiment and a little bling with the So Many Smiles for the circle under it.
So Many Smiles
Crazy Good
This card is one of my favorite cards because it is simple but different and fun! 

Again I used the Crazy Good stamp set and added the Enamel & Glitter Duos Blue Dots for that touch of bling! 

I can't wait to play more with this paper!  How about you?  What would you create?

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #127

I am not a big Halloween card person but this stamp spoke to me for this card!  
Trick or Treat Sweets

So with a little fiddling and a witch left on my table, this fun card was created!

It is sort of mirror image because of where the words fell from my zip strip off the Nevermore paper which is where all the paper came from!

I used the Trick or Treat Sweets stamp set and stamped it with our new Momento Black Ink which works great with our ShinHan Markers that I colored the images with!

As the final touch Green Shimmer Trim was used to make banners under the stamped images.

Please join us and share your version of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
