I love the cute clear stamp's from Darcie's Heart and Home. I went a little crazy at her booth at a stamping expo, and I am excited to share my first creation with her stamps.
I am playing along today with Retro Sketches #123. I am a big fan of sketches, because they give me a jumping off point - I know sometimes the end product does not always match the sketch to a "T" but I think this one is pretty close. I was using up some scraps of my Chantilly paper pack from Close to My Heart. Typically I am not a pastel person, but for some reason the soft colors of this paper pack drew me. I especially love how they pop off the kraft cardstock, which is one of my favorite types of card bases!
I am also playing along with Cards Galore blog, use a stamp. :)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE hexagons. I am addicted. I have dies, punches and stamps in hexagon shapes. Just my fave right now!! So, I wanted to make a card using my latest hex-y purchase, the Epiphany Crafts hexagon punch and the epoxy shapes. The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use summer colors. Love it! CAS #133. The epoxys also count towards the Let's Be Clear challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
Here it is:
And... I used one of my super cute sentiment sets from Paper Smooches - my favorite!
Whew! I think things are settling down for us (again!)
I found this great kit club, Back Porch Memories Kit Club. They are hosting a guest designer call for August, and I thought I'd throw my hat in.
I decided to make a layout about Archery. I really fell in love with this sport after trying it at my son's Cub Scout camp. :) I actually ended up being the Archery Range Master at Day Camp this year, since I love it so much!
Hi friends! I'm back with lots of fun to share!! This is my first post in a long time - we had a lot of excitement last year and now things are getting back on track! Evan is in 4th grade and just was nominated for the Citizen of the Year at school. We couldn't be prouder!
I am hard at work on our Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet planning, which will be at the end of February. I am also jump starting my blog posts with inspiration from several online challenges. It's been a while, but I am excited to play!
