Atlantic Hearts Sketch #117










My first thought was to follow the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #117 specifically and do hexagons and then I realized how hard it is for some people to see beyond the sketch!  So I thought of the overlay on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and how perfect it would be for this sketch!  

I cut it out of the Chalk It Up paper and used the Teal Shimmer Trim cut in half to add a little sparkle!  The paper behind the overlay is Lagoon and the background color is Sorbet.

The stamp used is from the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection and is all sentiments!

I realized afterwards that my angle is the opposite direction, oops, same idea though!

Be sure and join us at Atlantic Heart Sketches and share your interpretation of the Sketch!

Leave me some love and encouragement, who can't benefit from that!?

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter O

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!


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

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


O is for Ombre!  This layout is simple and fun and the title was fast and easy! 

I just took couple of colors of ink and sponged them onto the light colored paper! I started with the Sunset and graduated to Honey blending it a little as I went!  The title was cut using Artiste and welded in Design Space!

I hope you enjoyed my O project and will continue to go on through the rest of the hop!!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #115

I went in search of flowers to put on this card and found this leftover chipboard from the retired Lucky paper.  It was perfect for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #115 and I am excited to be using it up!  

The paper used is Blossom and it is accented with a Zip Strip from Lollydoodle (retired) and Chocolate cardstock!

I was even able to use up a few more chipboard inside the card.  Using up that stash! I decided not to put a sentiment on it yet, I am thinking I will probably use it for a child's birthday card!








Be sure to join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and share your intrpretation of the sketch!

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter N



Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!


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



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

My N's are Newsworthy, Notes, Nephew and New England Ivy! 

My nephew is a band director and his band got to play at Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) as the Texas Honor Band for Middle School.  This is a huge honor that they have to audition for!  Anyway, in San Antonio they had the TMEA and I got to go see the band play, it was amazing!  My Brother-in-law arranged the music and my nephew, his college instructor and a former student now in  college played a trio during the concert!  

So I figured it was definitely Newsworthy and there were Notes, beautiful ones!  The title and music Notes and treble clef were made from the Hannah Montana Cartridge!
  
The background paper is New England Ivy and the paper under the title is from the Yuletide Carol paper pack and had music in New England Ivy on it!
The Notes were cut out of the Black, Grey and Silver Glitter Paper!  It is much prettier in person!

Hope you enjoyed my N's and enjoy hopping through to see the different N's we all came up with!
