Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #153

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #153 immediately spoke layout to me, however I rarely have one photo.  I love this photo though it isn't the best, I love how the page turned out!

Sangria paper and Complements were used along with a little Kraft paper and the Cricut, of course!  

The title was cut with the Artbooking Cartridge. I doubled the title because it was blending with the background paper too much so I cut the exact same title out of Eggplant and offset it a little.

A cluster of the Sangria Complements were accented with the Enamel and Glitter Duos Purple Hearts for that little touch of bling! Some elements were raised with our 3-D foam tape.
  

One Wacky simple but fun thing I just learned about our  3-D foam tape is that it is tearable!  I am always snipping off little pieces with our fabulous Non-Stick Micro-tip Scissors but that is so inconvenient compared to tearing it!

I hope you will join us at Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge and share your interpretation with us soon!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #151 and Color Dare #184



This Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge sketch immediately made me think of the Feathers stamp from Close to My Heart (FYI all stamps are Buy Two get one FREE until the end of March!).  It came out and I was trying to figure out what colors to use and though of the Color My Heart Color Dare and look to see their Color Dare for this week.  

The colors were Smoothie, Sweet Leaf, Flaxen, Canary and White Daisy and you have to use all the colors and only those colors.  This is a bigger challenge than a thought but I did it!

The sentiment is from the Joyful Birthday stamp set and the first mat is from super old paper called Wings and the second mat is Canary.

Please join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and share your interpretation of the sketch!

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- LetterF

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

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

If you came from Catherine Nowak-CatScrapbooking then you're on the right track!

I saw this card on someone's blog and changed it up a little. Hers was square and I changed it to a standard A2 card and had a different sentiment.  

The thing I love about this card is that it could be recreated in any colors & with many different sentiments & could be used for any age or gender!


The stamp set is Feathers C1584 and the sentiment is from Joyful Birthday B1419. The paper is Lagoon and the Inks are Lagoon and Whisper.  The sequins are retired.

Feathers C1584


Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Lauren Moore - CTMH Craftings.

If you have any trouble on the hop you can find the list of everyone here!
