A Scrapbook Page

I have been taking a Big Picture class called Stashbuster Anonymous.  So I have been trying to scrap some pictures I had lying around that are of my 24 YO daughter when she was one!  I found these in my Dad's stash of photos after he passed on.  My first layout for the class.

You are My Happy by Donna Nuce
I used the Close to My Heart Buzz & Bumble DP and stamp set to make this.  I am only two weeks behind in class because of vacation so I need to get caught up.  

Happy Crafting!

House of Cards Classic and Elegant August Challenge

This is the week at House of Cards Challenge Blog for Classic & Elegant Cards and my week to post as part of that Design Team!  This month it is a sketch challenge all month.

My Classic & Elegant Card for the Challenge

I made this card while I was camping out at my Brother and SIL's place.  The background on it has been changed three times!  I didn't like what I did the first time.  The second time we were working in my SIL's craft room late at night and the lighting wasn't so good.  I thought I had mounted the bee and senitment on cream Cardstock.  Instead it was white.  My SIL and I got a good laugh about it!  When I got home I took it apart one more time and mounted them on cream cardstock.  I think I need to buy my SIL an OTT light for her birthday to put in her craft room.  (Pati don't read this part!)

Products used:
Close to My Heart Bumble Bee Quick Card
Close to My Heart Buzz & Bumble Scrapbooking Workshop (retired) for Wonderful Stamp, DSP, cardstock and bling.
Ribbon from my SIL's stash
Spellbinders Parisien Accents Dies
Tim Holtz Distressed ink "Gathered Twigs"

Happy Crafting!

Inkspirational Challenge #33

I am back from a nice camping trip to Blue Mesa Reservoir just outside of Gunnison Colorado.  Weather was a little cold and rainy but still a beautiful place to camp.

I had time to put together a card for the Inkspirational Challenge Blog.

This weeks challenge was a photo challenge.  I used Graphic 45 's papers from ABC Primer and A Place in Time September for the card.  It is a CASE of a tag on Pinterest by Wendy Jannusch.  

Here's the photo inspiration from Inkspirational if you would like to play along.

Happy Crafting!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 171

The challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut blog this week is a shaped card.  I really wanted to make a castle shaped card to use my little unicorn from the Law Fawn Critters Ever After stamp set.

The inside:

The castle is from the DoodleCharms Cartridge.  I embossed the front of the castle with a Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder. The roof is embossed with a Tim Holtz Dot Matrix embossing folder.  I highlighted the embossing with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed ink.  The banner is a Lawn Fawn Lawn cuts die.  The sentiments are from the same Critters Ever After stamp set.  

I am also entering this in the Inkspirational Challenge #31 Anything Goes

Happy Crafting!
