Life is Sweet

So is this little card. I needed a couple of birthday cards this month and here is one of them.

I was playing along over at Sketch N Scrap and this is what I came up with. How about you do you like sketches? How do you typically make cards?

Card Sketch #90

I also played along for Card Sketch #89 

I made that one for my sweetie. I probably should have saved it for Valentines Day but I just wanted to make his day extra special and a card is a great way to make that happen.

Supplies from CTMH unless otherwise noted:
Cardstock: Palmagranate, White Daisy
Pattern Paper -  Sugar Rush
Embellishments - Sugar Rush Complements

Other - Sugar  Rush Washi Tape

This is the year - Pocket Scrapping

For the last several years I have said I think I will try Pocket Scrapbooking. Every year I sit down plan what to scrap my first week order photos and stare blankly at the page and set it aside and go back to the traditional way I scrapbook.

This year it is a little different.

I have been trying to be more active in my scrappy groups on FB and less active in the other things you find on FB. This has been amazing! I have been scrapping more, organizing more, interacting more. I love it! So I mentioned how I had been organizing more, well I discovered I have a TON of pocket page protectors...and I am not kidding! I have like 90. That is a whole album and then some. So again this year I vowed to start pocket scrapbooking.

Here is what happened.

I did it! It went pretty smooth. I did have to figure things out and I swapped stuff around and changed out my photos a few times but I did it and I love how it came together.

I shared this on Facebook and had a lot of questions about that page protector. It says Stampin' Up! on the side so it must be from one of their value packs or something as I have only this one. I will list out the other supplies below they are from Close to my Heart.

Have you tried Pocket Scrapbooking?
