This week's sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge gave me many ideas for projects, but my favorite one is this sweet layout of my granddaughter sitting in our field of spring grass holding Angel Baby.

Here's the sketch this week-

And here's my layout for it-

Another week down and a new sketch up! It seems like the weeks are passing by at breakneck speed these last few months! For this sketch I did a card that will be perfect to give a friend!

Here's the sketch!

Here's my take on the sketch!

I wanted to try out a cut from some Graphic 45 Fashionista collection paper. The whole page is nothing but women from the 40's or 50's era printed on what looks like a playing card. I went for an antique, vintage look on my card by inking all the edges with walnut ink. I used a herringbone background and embossed it with a herringbone folder.
Hope you like this one! Be sure and check out the rest of the design team's designs at Have a great, crafty week!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge- June 10th

It is a fun sketch this week over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge! I love flowers and I love the pennant/banner look so this sketch hits a home run for me! Here's the sketch that we had to work with-

Isn't that a great sketch? I love how simple it is and how great it looks with cards and layouts! I did a layout for my granddaughter's album. Here it is-

My design team post for this week features the new Cricut cartridge- Chalkboard Fonts. This is by far one of my new favorites for a font cartridge. I love the way the letters look like they are intricate but it's a breeze to put together. I also used Pretty Pennants to make the banner and my Imagine with the Imagine More Cards cartridge for the Hello bubble. This page went together so easily with 2 double sided sheets of patterned paper, a Prima flower and some dark brown cardstock. I also used a white Signo uniball pen to outline the pennant to give it some pop. I used some embroidery floss to sew the banner onto the paper. An added layer was to use foam squares to pop the letters off the paper. With the layered letters, it really added some oomph!

Let it Snow- Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I loved this week's sketch challenge! It looked like falling snow to me and I need to document the only real snow that we had this year!! Here's the sketch-

There's so much that you can do with this one. I can't wait to see everyone's take on it. But here's mine-

Let It Snow!

I used my Cameo to draw the snowflakes onto a silver Bazzill Bling paper which is one of my favorite paper lines. I love the little bit of sparkle on the cardstock. I used a blue pen and then took some Stardust Stickles to fill them in to make them have the sparkle that snowflakes have. I found the let it snow in the Silhouette store and cut it out in a slate blue cardstock, along with the month and year. This layout was so easy to do and took no time- thanks to a great sketch and a great machine!
