Oh Scrap : Sisterhood Challenge

Well it's been a while since I posted (lots of personal stuff going on), but I wanted to at least be sure to post the latest 'scrap' card that I made. Another card for one of our newly broke out trainees.
I often use layers with paper that's been repurposed...this was no exception. Every one of my layers was a repurpose! I've taken a pic of the back of the first layer to show you what I mean. Do you make the most of your scraps?

Let us see your scrap creations over at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

It's All About The Boys : Sisterhood Challenge

This week's challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters is a male specific card. You know...Father's Day coming up and all :)

This was the card I made for MrP for his birthday at the end of May. He said he thought it was the nicest card I'd ever made. Can't remember if that was qualified with "for me" or not, but I definitely didn't think it was as spectacular as he did. I guess he's even more simple when it comes to CAS cards.

My second card was a baby card for some friends who had their first child at the end of May. He's already got more hair than his Daddy! I included a little gift card for them to find something they need, as they're a three hour drive to get to, but I hope to visit soon.

Finally, my last card was yet another card for one of my latest trainees who's now all 'growed up', as I tease them. Looks like I have another two of these cards to make. Maybe I'll have an evening of just card making coming up!

Thanks for stopping by - and be sure to check out what the other Sisters have been up to. I know Dar, Lisa and Micki have got some beauties. Lisa's creation in particular.....can I just say....WOW! Beerlicious :)

Congrats You Did It!

Well in another attempt at the Sisterhood's challenge this week, I checked out the Mojo Monday Sketch 294 for inspiration and created this orange-filled card for my second trainee to break out, which happened on Saturday. He's a favorite, as well, so I was eager to create the card in his favorite color, orange. I kept the girly stuff to a minimum, as the sentiment is a little on the swirly side. 

A very CAS card - and I can't wait to present it tomorrow. It must be similar to the feelings parents have - I'm very proud. :)

Say It Loud : Sisterhood Challenge

Wow! I just realized that I didn't actually post this...and I am the one hosting this challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters. Make a card or project using only a sentiment, no images or pictures. At first, I thought this wasn't going to be too hard because I had great sentiments that I absolutely adore. Turns out, using NO other images or pictures was tough. I'd have a great background in my head, then realize that was stamping images and redouble my efforts. I guess even with that in mind, I cheated a bit because I had two sentiments.

What do you think?

Flower Power : Sisterhood Challenge

This time around, the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters happens to be Flower Power - use at least one flower on your creation. Well, I've used a that's dimensional and more of the same that aren't, plus a wrapped bundle of beauties from the Verve One Person set.
I went with one of my mom's favorite color combinations...which I think I use for pretty well every card I make for her. The green this time was mellow moss (it's often certainly celery), plus perfect plum, which is her favorite color.
The sketch was inspired by the Mojo Monday 292 sketch, which I think is pretty obvious. LOL
Let's see your flower-filled creations :)
Head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters & share your floral beauties!

Happy Easter : Sisterhood Challenge

Well this is waaaaay late now, but this was my Easter creation for The Sisterhood of Crafters' Spring and Easter Challenge.
The image was a QKR Stampede called Happy Duckling. Isn't it the cutest?!

Thanks for stopping by!

Anything Goes : Sisterhood Challenge

The challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters this week is.....anything goes! Should make for a fun assortment of creations for our viewing pleasure.

For me, I needed a card for one of the guys at my office who was my first trainee to break out (he's now able to work by himself on job sites). I was like a proud parent that day! This was the card I created for him...pretty clean and simple with just a ribbon and some glitter along the edges of the medium stars.

Not sure what has happened to my brain lately, as I keep forgetting to actually post my pics, despite having completed them quite a while ago.

Anyways, the challenge is up until Sunday, so head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters for some Anything Goes fun :)
