Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #279

I love changing the card sketches to layouts!  To me it shows that you can get ideas from anywhere!  
The only big change I made to the sketch was to add the base color, Peacock, to make it square rather than rectangle! Just a side note, there are 10 colors from Close to My Heart retiring this Friday and the cardstock packs are changing size and price!  

A retired paper pack, Swan Lake, seemed to work well for my photo and this layout used up almost all the leftovers from that paper pack and the Love, Heart and We are Family were from the same paper pack's complements!

The picture is one of my favorites from our Disneyland trip!  It is my niece, Casey, and all 4 of our kids hugging her goodbye!  Casey was sweet enough to fly out from Florida to help my husband with the kids at Disneyland while I went to the Close to My Heart convention.

Join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to challenge yourself with Sketch #279 or future sketch!  We look forward to seeing your projects!

Lots of things are retiring Friday, August 31!  Here is a link to check out what is going away!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #277

This card was super simple to make!  Grabbing my sample pack of papers from the current Seasonal Expressions 2 (which is ending this MONTH and is while supplies last).  

I just picked three papers I felt went well together, that all happened to be from the Documented paper pack and cut them in varying lengths an angled the end.

Because I was in a bit of a hurry I looked through the rest of my paper samples and found a banner on one of the Picture My Life cards from Central Park paper pack and trimmed it out to be my sentiment! Viola!  a finished card in 5 minutes!  Digging in my stash of bling I found Epoxy Bubbles that are retired and put the finishing touch on!  I love that is a somewhat masculine card too!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #275

I used leftovers from Fresh Air paper pack to create this card, this paper pack is available until the end of August while supplies last.  It is actually one of my favorites from the Close to My Heart Seasonal catalog this time!

To make the card I cut two rectangles the size of my base and then cut then diagonally both directions.  This left me with 4 triangles from each paper!  I actually have another card started but my crazy four children and high school band life kept me from finishing it.

The Sentiment in the middle is from a Picture My Life Card included in the Documented paper pack which is also available until the end of August while supplies last.

The sequins are retired from a couple of years ago!  Using my stash!  Join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and show us your interpretation of Sketch #275 or a future sketch!  It is a great way to challenge yourself to do something different or to help use your stash and maybe bless someone with a handmade card!
