Happy Wishes - BTF

Hello! Today I have a fun challenge for you from the Between the Folds Challenge and it is all about PML or Picture my Life cards or if you do not have those in ever CTMH paper pack there is one page that has PML type cards you can cut up, those will work too!

I used the Dream Big paper pack on this card and the PML or paper like PML is actually the layer with the stamped sentiment on it. I trimmed it down a bit to fit the card and the sentiment. I do apologize that the stamped image is a bit crooked, my 7 year old loves helping mommy with her projects and she had a bit of a rough day so I told her she could help. When she saw it crooked she was so sad, tears welled in her eyes and I knew it would just be to much to tell her it was not straight, she already felt like she let me down so I gasped and said I love it on the angle like that, such a great choice to do it that way and with that her spirits were right back up and she was flying high again.

Products used:

Paper:
- Dreamin Big
- Black, White Daisy, and Poppy card stock

Ink:
- Pomegranate

Stamp:
- Sending Smiles

Embellishments:
- Black and White Dots

Thanks for stopping in and checking out my work. I would love to see your take on the BTF challenge!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Paper Hug - BTF Challenge

Time for a card....I made this one for the Some Kinda Wonderful card workshop. I love the stamp set I used for this one, I will admit, I was on the fence about ordering, I wanted it but would I really use it. The fact that it is the Operation Smile set (portion of proceeds goes to Operation Smile) made it easier but would I really use it? Oh my I am using it, this is just the fist of many projects with it, a great investment for a great cause!

Stamp:

Thanks for checking me out today, I do appreciate all feedback. Please check out the rest of the design team projects over at Between the Folds and we would love for you to play along....if you do not have the paper pack you can use the colour palette of Black, White Daisy, Lemon, Glacier, Pacifica, Willow, Whisper and Raspberry.

Crazy, Silly, Fun - BTF challenge

Hello!

This week / month is all about Some Kinda Wonderful as that is the paper pack we used for this months workshops. Today I have a layout that is inspired by one of my customers sons. He is a cutie pie but he is crazy, silly and oh so much fun and always keeps her on her toes so this one is for you little buddy! I really do try to customize my layouts to my customers / friends so that they are usable immediately where possible and the pictures are in their scrapbooks on pages and not a pile of pictures and a pile of unused layouts.
