CAS(E) This Sketch #93

Today, I have a card to share that I made for

This card was pretty quick to make!
I used some Webster's Pages patterned paper & a Crate Paper chipboard embellishment.
I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Wet Paint) on the strip of patterned paper.
A sprinkling of tiny Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins finishes it off.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, September 25th to link up your card.

Reverse Confetti September Colour Challenge

Well, it's the 16th of the month, which means that
there is a new Colour Challenge up on the Reverse Confetti blog today! 

Here's the card I made with it:

I started with some Heidi Swapp patterned paper which I trimmed
to different widths and then die cut the ends with the largest tag from Tag Me.
I also did the same with a piece of white card stock. 
On this, I stamped a sentiment from Fresh 'n Fruity and added a die cut lemon
I added a little pink button with some twine and two rows of stitching along the top to finish it off.


Be sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog to see what
the other designers created using this colour combo!

Pages With Papertrey Sketch #37

Today, I am sharing a layout that I made using the following sketch:

Now, I'm posting this sketch for Pages With Papertrey,
but I have to admit..... the only Papertrey Ink products on my page are cardstock.
I debated on not posting the sketch, but I don't have any other layouts with a sketch
that I could share and a crazy week ahead filled with prepping for Sage's birthday party,
so I figured it was better than nothing. ;)

I used some Crate Paper The Pier patterned paper and chipboard to 
scrapbook these super fun photos of Sage and Jonah's best friend, Josh, on one of
the rides at our local Corn & Apple Festival last summer.

For my title, I used my Mama Elephant alphabet dies and some kraft card stock.

The "today was" stamp is Elle's Studio and I used my date stamp to fill it in.

So if you make a layout using the sketch, please link it up here
in the comments on my blog or here on the PTI forum --
I love to see what you made!

Thanks for looking!

Make It Monday #179

*Note: I have some stamps & dies listed for sale here
if you'd like to check them out.  :)

Well, since I had such a great time leading Sage's Sunday School group last year,
I signed up to do it again this year.

As much as I would have loved to keep my same group, because they were awesome,
the powers that be decided to change things up & I have a new group.
Three of the kids are from my group last year (including Sage!), 
but I have seven new kids.

I wanted to start off the year on a good note, so I made them all "happy hello" cards
to tell them how excited I am that they're in my group, how I'm looking forward
to getting to know them & hanging out with them on Sunday mornings
and how I think this year is going to be great. :)

I decided to use the adorable ferris wheel stamp from Betsy's MIM County Fair kit
and paired it with a Wet Paint hello and the "a happy" stamp from WW: Hello.
I used the Journaling Card 1 die to die cut my panels.

I was going to use patterned paper for my backgrounds, 
but changed my mind when I saw Laura's MIM this week for Papertrey Ink: 
Emboss Resist Using Diecuts and decided that this would create 
great backgrounds for my cards!

I used my Centre Stage cover plate for this technique.
I did half of the cards with the whole cover plate and half with just the top two thirds.
I inked them up using five colours.

Before you go, I just want to share the card that I made for Tag You're It Challenge #6
where we're being inspired by this beautiful tag by TYIC Designer Karin Åkesdotter:

I was inspired by how Karin had the butterfly and leaves extended over the edges of her tag
and decided to create a card using this technique.

I used one of my Pretty Pink Posh tag dies, which I die cut from vintage cream card stock.
I layered it over some Crate Paper patterned paper and stamped my sentiment
from Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint.
Then, I added some Crate Paper chipboard elements, as well as some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Visit the Tag You're It Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's takes 
on the challenge and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Wednesday, September 24th to link up your project.
