SNS Card Sketch #154

Happy Happy Birthday to my first baby girl. I wanted to make my oldest daughter a card for her 29th birthday and so I again grabbed this fun paper from American Crafts called Along the Way. It is just so playful and sweet. I also used it here and here. When I saw the sketches for this month I knew I wanted to do something with it because it has one of my go to styles of one paper on the bottom and another on the top. I also just adore anything with banners.

I did minimal stamping on this card as I wanted to keep it sweet and simple. I fussy cut one of the girls out and popped her up with pop dots and added some little gold balls.

Here is the card from another angle

SNS Card Sketch #153

We have this fun bonus card using this sketch from the beginning of the month. Again I love all things banners so this was a quick and simple card for me to put together.

I think I will do another version of this one in the near future. It is a great sketch. Lots of possibilities with different paper and sentiments. 

We would love to see what you come up with! Come and join us at Sketch N Scrap.

SNS Layout #184

I have a very special page for you today about a special lady. My grandma was to turn 100 years old in a few days on September 5th. Sadly she passed away a few weeks ago in late July. I knew when I saw this sketch I would want to feature her. I took a copy of this photo a while ago of her and her mom on the side of the mountain and she told me about this car and retold me the story of getting her license by sending just $1.00 to Nashville, no test or anything. 

I am looking forward to savoring my many many memories that I have of my grandma and putting them down on paper while they are still relatively fresh in my memories. I should have done better recording them. 

I cut the journaling into strips and added little metallic pearls to the flowers. I also fussy cut several sets of flowers and popped them up.

I also used a doily which I love but never ever use. So happy to try new thing in my pages. 

I used paper from Photo Play from the Free Bird line. It is so pretty and vintage but also very bright and cheerful. Perfect for older photos. We hope you can join us over at Sketch N Scrap.
