Happy Thursday!

Good Morning!
I've been super busy at work this week but I'm still managing to make a few cards. My All That Scraps previews were done awhile ago though ;)
This set I'm previewing is called School Days and there are some super cute images in the set!
I stamped the image in Memento ink and coloured with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. I added some Crystal Effects to the apple.
The sets will all be available next Monday evening from All That Scraps.
These next two cards were made using the SCS sketch 239 from yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by and I'm sorry I can't leave details on my cards. The computer keeps acting up and to be honest, I don't have patience to fiddle around with it right now....the weekend is coming....lol
Have a GREAT day!

Fun and Funky Designer Paper Cards

Good Morning!
We have an emergency going on in my house....well craft room....I seem to be out of mono adhesive, atg tape, double sided tape....all of it...ACK! Guess that's what I get for not paying attention when I grab the last roll, eh?
I've got more cards to show you using this cool and funky designer paper! After working on the Featured Stamper card on Sunday, I didn't put it away....lol
So after dinner I went back down and stamped!
This first card is for the Weekend Sketch Challenge that is being hosted by Laurie! I used A Year of Sweets 2 and A Year of Sweet Sentiments from Taylored Expressions.
This next card is for Taylor's TECC75 sketch. This time I used a cute cupcake set called For the Love of Cupcakes from Taylored Expressions.
This last card was made for Cindy's MFT Sketch Challenge 91 in the MFT forum on SCS.
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to come back tomorrow....All That Scraps sneak peeks begin!

You're The Best!

Good Morning!
It's Wednesday! That means it is time for another All That Scraps Challenge. This week Lesa challenged the girls to make a card with no designer paper. ACK!

The image is from ATS and is a Swiss Pixie.

I've been wanting to do this ribbon treatment FOREVER and each time I see Jody Morrow do it....I think...why haven't I tried that yet? Well today I am! If you haven't been to Jody's blog...you REALLY must go....she has such a creative style that I wish I could CASE daily....lol

My Time to Create-Inspiration Challenge

Today I'm sharing my challenge card for the My Time To Create Challenge that Lauren hosts each week. This week we have an inspiration piece. Lauren took the guess work out of it for us with the colours too...love that!
I never seem to have enough Thank You cards kicking around and I've used up most of my stash for all the teacher's last week. I loved the colours but I did have a hard time making them come together. I inked up the floral image from Thoughts & Prayers with my SU! markers and the sentiment comes from Trendy Trees.

Christmas in July with Taylored Expressions!

I'm back with another little project that I'm excited to share with you!
The Baker's Dozen are celebrating Christmas in July....my favourite holiday ;)
Have you seen these super cool Perfect Packages from Taylored Expressions? Well they are a great heavy weight box that folds flat but when assembled is very sturdy. It's a snap to put together too....no glue or tape. It has a great magnetic closure on the front flap too!! I've linked to the small square box that holds 3 x 3 cards.
Here I've decorated the outside to be very similar to what my cards on the inside look like.
I've used my FAVE set from Taylored Expressions called Branching Out.
I made 8 identical cards like the one below and included 8 envelopes in the box as well. My cards have a little dimension to them but you can definitely fit more in there.
Stamps: Branching Out; Cardstock: Choice Buttercream, Dusty Durango, Old Olive, MME dp; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Mat pack and paper piercer, MM flowers, buttons, Linen thread, Dusty Durango ribbon, Scalloped edge punch, Dimensionals
How about popping by the Baker's Dozen blogs and seeing what FAB creations they have to share?!
Now for a special!
Christmas stamp sets will be 20% off July 15-25. Also Taylor will give away a set of 5 of the new Perfect Packages in a random drawing, so stop by Taylor's Blog for the details!
Thanks for stopping by...be sure to scroll down for my first post from earlier today!

It's all about friends!

Good Morning!
Wednesday's mean it's time for another All That Scraps Challenge! This week we have a sketch for you and if you stop by the ATS blog a little later today you will find all the details there. I THINK there may be a surprise there too but even I don't know what it is...lol
I'm posting early because I'll be gone to work ;)
I hadn't inked the cute Junebug image yet and really wanted to play with her. I paired her up with a sentiment from AmyR's Friends Sentiment set.
Stamps: Junebugs, AmyR Friends Sentiment; Cardstock: So saffron, Soft sky, White and DP; Inks: Memento black; Accessories: Copics, mini pearls, Buttons, linen thread, Nesties, Ribbon, Dimensionals
Now I want to show you a SUPER duper cute card I got from Denise this week!!! Adorable eh?
