I made this piece with my friend Lynnette in mind. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she loves to host an event this time of year. I thought this would be a fun display for her party. The Big Shot and our exclusive thinlits made this so easy! Our designer series paper is so useful for cards and projects, as you can see here.

August Sketch Challenge from SSInk

Happy Monday friends! I am so excited to bring you another weekly challenge from my stampin’ pals over at SSInk. This week we have a very fun sketch challenge for you.

#SSINKCS36

Here is my card

SSInkSC36

I especially love sketch challenge because for me designing a layout can be the most challenging part of putting a card together. When the layout is in front of me, it is easier to choose stamps that fit and then run with it. I hope that you will play along with us this week! You can link up to your blog or add it to our Facebook group.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I would love to here from you so please leave me a comment and be sure to subscribe to the blog so that you never miss another post!

ICS Blog Hop – Fabulous Framelits

ICSBlogHop

It’s the first Wednesday of the month so that means it’s time for the ICS Blog Hop! I am so excited that you are here.

This month we are showcasing our Fabulous Framelits! Did you know that Stampin’ Up! offers 52 different sets of framelits! That is such a huge selection to choose from! My project used 3 different sets between the gift item and the coordinating card.

Aug ICS Blog Hop

This was a wedding gift for my son’s youth group leader who got married last weekend. I used their invitation as the inspiration for patterns and colors. Their wedding was an evening filled with family, fun and faith. The bride and groom met last fall at a youth event held at church and now they are husband and wife. I love that our Large Letter Framelits and Large Number Framelits make personalized gifts so easy! The Sunshine Wishes thinlits made a coordinating card quick and easy to add!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Megan’s blog and see what she has for us. Thank you so much for hopping by tonight! I would love to know what you thought of my project! Be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post.

Monday Color Challenge

It’s Monday! That means it is time for another weekly challenge with the great team at SSInk. This week we are playing with these fun colors!

SSInk Aug Color Block

At first, I wasn’t really sure about these but once I got working with them, I fell in love! Here is my card

SSInk1Aug

This was the first time I have used the flowers from Jar of Love. I love how easy it was to cut them out with the big shot using the coordinating framelits. These colors are perfect for the time of year here in Idaho. The colors are getting richer and deeper while the dog days of summer are very much upon on.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope that you are inspired to play along with us this week and I would love to know what you think about my project! Be sure to subscribe to my site while you are here so that you never miss another post!

Join us in the color challenge! Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone. This is the greatest day in America and I hope that you will be celebrating with friends and family. We are super busy putting in a back yard – with 100 degree temps. I swear we are crazy people. But The Lord opened doors for us to do this project now so we are running with it.

This weeks challenge is a great one over at SSInkspiration.

SSINK Color Challenge July

I thought it would be fun to use these colors for something other than stars and stripes!

SSINK CS35 Card

The background was watercolored using the Dapper Denim and an Aqua Painter. I always watercolor on the Shimmery White paper because it will not pill up like our Whisper White.  All of the other elements are from the Sunshine Sayings bundle. This is such a great set with many words and adorable images that can be die cut with the big shot.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave me some blog love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!
