Stick It Down - July

I came across a new website with three fabulous sketch challenges posted monthly. Here is my layout for Stick It Down and their one page sketch. The photo was taken by my brother during his trip to Jamaica over the 4th of July week.

My Creative Scrapbook - June

It's been a super long time since I posted a 12x12 layout. The sketch for this page came from My Creative Scrapbook. These are our two rescue dogs patiently sitting while mom takes a million pictures.

Graduation

Tomorrow we're attending a graduation at Loma Linda University. I repurposed part of the announcement/invitation to create the card and used some really old stamps from SU.

Show Me the Money

I got the idea for this card from RobbyGurl's Creations. I obviously made a few modifications and stuffed it with $11 for my nephew's 11th Birthday!

Happy Mother's Day!

I made this card using paper left over from Cocoa Daisy's February Kit, "Shine Bright". I embossed the sentiment and added some rhinestones but otherwise used the paper as-is.

Happy Birthday - Over the Hill

I made this card for my step-father after seeing something similar on Pinterest. He's an outdoorsy kind of guy so I thought the theme was well suited for him.

I made this for my husband and for his love of the outdoors. Here's to another year of adventure.

Travelers Notebook - Cocoa Daisy

Since June of last year I've been keeping a monthly Travelers Notebook (aka Daisy Dori) which I receive monthly from Cocoa Daisy. While it can sometimes be a burden to keep up to date, the designs and the embellishments are so cute that you can't let them go to waste.

My Creative Scrapbook - April

If you've been following my blog you know that Stuck?!Sketches is no more but the good news is that Laura's sketches are being profiled over at My Creative Scrapbook. While they don't offer InLink as a sharing feature I have joined their FB Group and plan to share there.

So Sorry

The idea for this card came from Pinterest and Debby Hughes at Lime Doodle Design. Sympathy cards can be so hard to make so any inspiration is much appreciated.

Serendipity Sketch - April 2018

Last week my brother and his kids went to see the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas. As you can see they were in the splash zone and got to meet one of the performers after the show. The basis for this layout is April's sketch from Miyuchi over at Scrapbook.com.

Easter - Butterfly Variations

I made these three cards using the exact same techniques, just different colors. I started by clear embossing the flower images on water color paper. I then washed each card with a mixture of colors. The butterfly was stamped on vellum and colored on the back with markers.

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Mar) - Adventures

For this month's first layout for Stuck?!Sketches I used three more photos from our ride last month in Palm Springs. I layered five circles in the background but ultimately put a piece of vellum over them as it was too dark and distracting.

Stuck?! Layout #3 (Feb) - Le Tour

A few weeks ago we participated in the Tour de Palm Springs, an annual charity ride that we've been doing for 3 years. The weather was absolutely perfect as was the company. This is my third layout for the month for Stuck?!Sketches.

Stuck? Layout #2 (Feb) - Le Ride

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to meet Phil Keoghan from the Amazing Race after a screening of his film "Le Ride". Phil rode the 1928 route of the Tour de France on a vintage bicycle over the course of 26 days. I followed this month's second sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Feb) - Fly Eagles Fly

I deviated slightly from this month's sketch from Stuck?!Sketches by using only one photo instead of two so I could preserve the skyline in the background. The Eagles title came from PNG Clipart and the skyline came from PinArt.

Serendipity Sketch - January 2018

For Christmas we all got together and gave my niece and nephew ski lessons at Massanutten Resort in Virginia. Here they are riding up in the ski lift. For this layout I followed January's sketch from Miyuchi. The papers are from SU and called Soho Subway.

Stuck?! Layout #2 (Jan) - Besties

Over the holidays I had a chance to visit with my college roommate. We took two quick selfies in the freezing cold that I thought went perfectly with the 2nd sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. I also wanted to give a shout out to all those wonderful gals that comment on my layouts every month, thank you!

I made this card for my sister-in-law on her 60th birthday. The papers are from Cocoa Daisy and the alpha stamps are from SU. "bird-day" is my own brush lettering.
