SBC - Sketch 490

Lots of stuff going on this month including a short vacation to San Diego. For sketch #490 from Scrapbook Challenges I wanted to highlight this photo from Cabrillo National Monument. If you're ever in the area, it's just a short drive from downtown. Hope you're having a great summer!

Golf Card

It's taken me a while to post this Father's Day card from last month but better late than never. The golfer is a cut file from Silhouette and all the other products are from SU.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2016 (Jul)

For this month's tag challenge I wanted to use patriotic colors in honor of 4th of July and I thought Tim's compass would work well while still staying true to the theme. I covered the stamped image with glue-n-seal instead of micro glaze and it seemed to be a good substitute.  In place of the word die I used flower dies to expose the watercolor paper underneath. The sentiment is from SU.

SBC - Sketch 487

This is the first summer in 11 years that we haven't vacationed with my niece and nephew from the East Coast. So I thought it would be nice to profile them in Sketch #487 from Scrapbook Challenges.

SBC - Sketch 485

As a massive heat wave rolls into Southern California I thought this baseball picture of my brother and his family attending an afternoon ballgame in DC was appropriate.  This is Sketch #485 from Scrapbook Challenges.

Happy Birthday Card

I made this quick and simple card for my BFF from high school. She always said that I had a thing for the "color" black...I have no idea what's she's talking about. Enjoy!

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2016 (Jun)

Here is this month's tag for Tim's challenge and what a challenge it turned out to be (i.e., many versions into the trash). Since I did not have the dapper design die I had to go searching my Silhouette library for something manly...a golfer. Next the plaid and what to do without the striped stencil...a ruler and markers. Definitely a dad worthy tag.

SBC - Sketch 484

Here is the last sketch of the month from Scrapbook Challenges. If you live anywhere in Southern California I would encourage you to check out the Aliso and Woods Canyon Wilderness Park in Orange County.  We went on a 26 mile bike ride over Memorial Day weekend and had a blast!

Wedding Card

I found the template for this card on Pinterest which eventually led me to The Serendipitous Stamper's website. All of the pink accents were recycled from the original wedding invitation. The sentiment, embellishments, paper and embossing are from SU.

SBC - Sketch 483

For sketch 483 from Scrapbook Challenges I used photos from a recent air show and paired them with some png files of airplanes that I found online along with some clouds that I substituted for the paint splatters.

SBC - Sketch 482

For last week's sketch from Scrapbook Challenges I substituted a painted doily as the center focal point in lieu of the real thing. The background paper is a sewing pattern which just happened to match the color of the doily. Pictured is one of my BFFs from high school that I hadn't seen in 14 years.

SBC - Sketch 481

For this sketch from Scrapbook Challenges I wanted to feature these really cool jellyfish photos taken at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. I thought the title "Wanderlust" was perfect.

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all the Mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day Mom, I'm glad you liked your card!

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2016 (May)

For this month's tag from Tim I used a Victorian era printable off of the internet as the focal point and a flower punch in lieu of the rosette die.



Another Cascading Card

As you can see I'm currently obsessed with the cascading card from Dr. Sonia. This is the card that I made for my sister-in-law.

SBC - Sketch 479

As many of you know the weather across the country has been a little crazy lately and we've had our share as well. For sketch 479 from Scrapbook Challenges I wanted to feature this snowy photo taken earlier this week.

Thank You!

I made this cascading card for Administrative Professionals Day! All supplies are from SU. I hope they like it.

For last week's sketch from Scrapbook Challenges I thought I'd use another adorable picture of Liam.

Cascading Card

We were invited to a birthday party and specifically told not to bring any gifts. ....so what's a crafty girl to do other than make a fabulous birthday card? I found the idea for this cascading card on Pinterest so I have to give a shoutout to Dr. Sonia. The only change I made was to add a solid panel to the front and back of the card. When folded flat it fits in a 6x6 envelope. All the products used are from SU.

SBC - Sketch 477

For this week's sketch from Scrapbook Challenges I wanted to scrapbook something wintry. Although we haven't had much of an El Nino winter, we did manage to get some Spring snow last week. I hope you're enjoying your Spring.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2016 (Apr)

Well this month's tag from Tim was by far the most labor intensive and time consuming tag that I've ever created. Since I did not have the pre-made mosaic pieces I created my own using magazine clippings coated with crystal effects. The rooster is from Silhouette. Of course, in the end it was all worth it.

Welcome Haddy!

Today our two girls (with 4 legs each) are going to meet their new their cousin Haddy.  She is a miniature schnauzer originally from Oregon and got to fly to California with her new mom to start her new life.  We thought it would be really cool to welcome her to the family with this dog themed card using supplies from SU.
