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 - February Sketch

Kobi and Reggie are our two rescue dogs and as you can see they are super spoiled; I think the title says it all. All the papers are from SU. Here is the single page sketch from Stick It Down.

My Creative Scrapbook - February

We successfully completed our annual Tour de Palm Palm Springs ride. While the temps were in the 40s at the start it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. Here is the link to My Creative Scrapbook's sketch for February.

Stick It Down - January Card

Here is the card that I made for my Adopt-A-School teacher. I made another 38 cards for her to either give to her students or have them decorate for their parents. In place of the sentiment in the sketch from Stick It Down I replace it with the cute little dog from SU.

Stick It Down - January Single Page

This was our first training ride of the year. The trail was in relatively good shape and as you can see the weather was awesome for January. We are less than one month away from the Tour de Palm Springs so hopefully we get a few more rides in. For this layout I followed the single page sketch from Stick it Down.

Happy New Year!

It's been a busy few months and I haven't kept up with my scrapbooking. However I did manage to stay crafty over the holidays by making my first ever scarf which coincidentally matches one of my wool car coats perfectly. A few days ago I came across a cool video by Holly Pixels and decided to give it a try. Below are two family dog photos that I created using Procreate on an iPad.

My Creative Scrapbook - November

For this month's sketch from My Creative Scrapbook, I thought this picture from Jennifer and Tyler's wedding last month would be perfect. The frame cluster was a freebie and the background paper is from SU. Happy Thanksgiving!

Stick It Down - September 1-Page Layout

Here is my one page layout for Stick It Down's September sketch. These photos were actually taken outdoors in a cleverly designed "photo booth" using an iPad. I created the sentiment using the Procreate app on my iPad.

Sequoia 6x6 Wedding Card

A few weeks ago we had the honor of attending a wedding just outside of Sequoia National Park in Three Rivers, CA. Most of the elements from the wedding card were recycled from the wedding invitation.

Stick It Down - September 2-Page Layout

Several weeks ago we went to San Antonio, Texas for the first time. I thought these pictures would work well on a 2-page layout for Stick It Down . A good part of our trip included a 5-hour bike tour of the Missions including the Alamo. Highly recommended and super impressed with the City.
