SNS Card Sketch #162

Hello everyone!

Today I have a card using some very old product from 2017, I have stuff that is much older that hopefully I will use up soon. I went to a crop recently and got a bunch of stuff done. It was a struggle to pack for it because I am trying to catalog my stamps before I settle into my room and put everything away. I am finding that I have hundreds of stamps and I hardly use them. So I am cataloging them so that I can put them to use in my scrapbooking. I already do use them for cards, just not nearly enough. I have always loved this set from CTMH called Brushed. The paper line is also called Brushed as this came from a Workshop on the Go Kit.

I made a card with the Sketch N Scrap card sketch #162.  We would love to see what you come up with. Be sure to link up with us over at the blog.

SNS Layout # 193

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

We finally made our big move a couple of weeks before Christmas so we are still getting settled in. This has made it a little challenging to be creative however I have been taking loads of photos. I will have some fun pages to share with all of you in the near future.

I did manage to find super sweet photos of all of our grandchildren this Christmas. I sat with this sketch for a while and things just all sort of came together. I don't use circles much and I don't use gold much but I used both on this one and just fell in love with the result. I also am happy that I did a page on something that happened less than a month ago.

SNS Layout #191

I decided to work with some photos from a gorgeous day last winter. I have a love hate relationship with winter. I really love it as it is so pretty and I feel like if it has to be cold it may as well be pretty. However winter seems to last forever and ever.   

On this day last December I woke up in a winter wonderland. I think it had warmed up a little and made a fog from the mix of warm air and the cold ground. Then the temperatures dropped overnight and the fog froze and this was the result. I wish you could have seen it in real life because these photos just do not do it justice.

SNS Card Sketch #159

Hello everyone! Are you ready for the end of the year to happen? 

We had an exciting thing happen. My husband and I bought our first home. We have been working on getting everything packed and ready to go for quite some time. We both have moved a lot in the past so this time I thought I would be strategic and keep out a couple of cards I needed to mail as well as a few items to be able to make some cards or scrapbook pages if I wanted to. 

I was so proud of myself and then I needed one of the said cards....wouldn't you know I couldn't find it anywhere! It is ok right? I have a few inks out and some of my favorite stamps most of which have cute matching dies. Did I also mention they need to be colored. Ok, welp I packed up my die machine as well as my markers, colored pencils and brushes (if I wanted to use an ink pool from a pad). 

Hahaha oh my. So I started digging around my stash and found this cute little Snoopy that I was given this summer at the Expo (they had a snoopy theme night) and wouldn't you know Snoopy is holding a gift. Awww Snoopy to the rescue! 

So I made this cute card and I was ready to assemble. Adhesive check, pop dots....hmmm nope. Ok I dig around and then I dig around some more and finally I just dig for something anything I can pop this up with. Since I apparently packed my pop dots I moved on to my glue dots while i try to figure something out. I am sure you have guessed by now I can't find them either and I am pretty sure they are packed at the bottom of a stack of heavy boxes. So I found some chipboard and picked out a couple that I have had forever and still have not used and popped up Snoopy. made my regular adhesive work where I needed the glue dots and wala birthday card ready to go.

Yay I was able to make a card. I used card sketch #159. I was able to use this cute die circle Planner Pocket - 2 Die  from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

My MIL loved the card and when I find the one I was planning on sending her. I will set it aside for next year.

Here is the adorable card sketch #159 we would love to see what you come up with. Be sure to link up with us over at the blog.

SNS Card Sketch #158

I am not sure what exactly it is about this sketch but when I saw it I totally fell in love with it. I can just envision using it time and time again. I came up with a set of cards within minutes. I used up a bunch of old stash (flowers from a PersonalScrapper Kit) and scraps. Here is the first one I came up with.

I love to also add some banners or some other simple thing to bring some color to the inside of the card as well. This card seriously came together in no time and I already know who I am going to send it to.

SNS Layout # 188

Hello everyone - I hope you are having a nice fall.  The leaves in the Midwest have been beautiful this year. 

I decided to work a little bit more on some photos from 2014 when I made my first trip down to Mississippi. I am normally so on top of photos but didn't think of any group shots until we were about to make the long drive home. An early morning photo shoot is probably not one of my best ideas and even though we all look a little rough this page still just makes me smile.
