Social Distancing

Who would have thought the new normal would be Zoom and Houseparty online events to celebrate birthdays? This month there have been many but here are two screenshots of online birthday parties that I hosted. The inspiration for this layout came from My Creative Scrapbook's May Sketch.

Another Bridge Card

I am totally loving this Golden Gate bridge stamp from Etsy. This time I embossed in gold and splattered inside and out with gold ink. Happy 13th Birthday Nathan!

Pandemic Layout

The inspiration for this layout came from one of the Spring 2020 sketches from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine. For those of us fortunate enough to still be  going into the office a few days a week, this is our current normal...no traffic.

Tag Birthday Card

I've had this tag sitting in my scrap pile forever and had never thought of using it on a card until recently. The butterfly was a last minute addition to what was meant to be a masculine card. Happy Birthday Chip!

Bridge Card

I purchased this stamp from Etsy for another project and thought it would make a great masculine birthday card stamp.

Anytime Card

I recently subscribed to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine and used this sketch for what I'm calling the Anytime Card. If you haven't checked out their website you're missing out. I would highly recommend subscribing to the magazine (it's so beautiful), you can also download it from their website. What?!

Random Tag

This morning I watched Tim Holtz live on FB and was inspired to create this tag. I'm not sure when or where I got this magazine photo but for reason I kept it in my stash.

Uncharted Territory

The inspiration for this page came from Wendy P Designs and her pandemic freebies. We are definitely in uncharted territory these days. Stay safe and stay home!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Tag

Happy Birthday!

For fifteen years I have been gifting a photobook to my niece. Over the years I've switched between Snapfish and Shutterfly, and have never been disappointed. This one was made with Snapfish. Happy Birthday!

Best Friend Valentine

I made this for one of my besties from high school. She is one of the best people I know and has apparently kept every card I've ever made for her.

Happy Birthday Easel Cards

Yeah, I know it's been a while. This month my mother and my best friend from college celebrated birthdays so I broke out the old easel card. Wow, did I forget how cool these were and how much the recipients love having something that they can sit on their desk or table. Most of the supplies came from my SU stash with distressing courtesy of Tim Holtz. Enjoy!

Baby Shower

I made this for my husband's niece. I actually borrowed the chalk board from our local hardware store (so awesome!). The idea was totally CASE'd from Pinterest, Jessica specifically. The flowers and the chalk paint were from Amazon.

Monster Reunion Tag - Someone Say Candy?

I haven't made tags in such a long time but I couldn't resist these stamps from Tim Holtz. Although I missed out on Monster Reunion 2 during Stamptember this set is still pretty cool and perfect for my 12 year old nephew.

Fresh Start Lettering Challenge - Days 1 and 2

Happy September! As you can tell, motivation has been lacking this summer so I decided to shift gears and join this daily lettering challenge posted by @HowToHandLetter on Instagram. Here are my first two Instagram posts created using the Procreate app on a 2018 9.7" iPad. #freshstartletteringchallenge

Stick It Down - June Layout

We are very fortunate to live in an area surrounded by National Forest with hiking trails and Forest Service roads where we can let our dogs run loose for the most part. This was taken on one of my favorite hiking roads where you can see and smell the beautiful mountain lupines. The sketch for this layout came from Stick It Down.

Congratulations Brittney and Jacob! This is a Z-Fold card inspired by Pinterest so it opens forward and stands up like an easel. #GotMeFeelinLikeTheWardAgain

Birthday Card - Boy

The sea turtles for this card came from a World Wildlife Fund (@World_Wildlife) mailer that I received with 6 complimentary cards and mailing labels. I repurposed the turtles for this card and combined it with some really old Heidi Swapp travel themed paper. Happy Birthday!

Happy Mother's Day - Pop-up 3D Card

I found the template for this card on Martha Stewart's website. The paper is from SU but really old. I would recommend using something other than cardstock for the flowers; I'm thinking origami paper would work great.

Stick It Down - May Layout

Last weekend we celebrated Joe's birthday at The State restaurant. Can you believe he rode his bike 33 miles to the restaurant and didn't even break a sweat? This inspiration for this layout came from Stick It Down's One Page Sketch.

Stick It Down - Easter Card

For this month's card sketch from Stick It Down I went a little off course and took some liberties to make the sketch my own. This adorable little rabbit was leftover from another card and I had been looking for an opportunity to use this 6x6 paper. The orange grid on the right is actually the B side.

Metal Earth Model - Peacock

This was a gift from my brother and wow, is it beautiful. This model came from Metal Earth. To assemble this peacock I used tweezers that were included in the kit and jewelry wire cutters. It was fairly time consuming and not everything went perfectly but it all worked out.

Stick It Down - March One Page

Another great bike ride to benefit the Redlands Conservancy. Tons of SAG stops including three brewery stops.  The sketch for this month's layout can be viewed at Stick It Down.
