SNS Card Sketch #170

More Pure Innocence for you today. I simply adore this little gals. This one is acutally not one that I own. It is from a pre-stamped bin that I had, and I have been trying to use up the images. I have had some of them for decades! I love that when I grab a sketch I can just make any image and any set of paper work with it. Literally endless possibilities here.

So do you know any gardeners? Have they planted their gardens yet? We have a flower garden at our new house but I have hung up my gardener gloves on the veggies. I love to plant them and watch them grow until the weeks come. Then I look up a lot or over...anywhere except those darn weeds!

I always like to decorate the insides of my cards as well here is a peek at that.

Here is the sketch that I used Sketch N Scrap #170

SNS Layout #201

Hello have you all been having fun playing along with us this month? We hope you are getting a lot done. Today I have a great layout to share with you. I have had these photos for a while and just didn't know what I wanted to do with them and then I was working with this sketch and I just could envision exactly how I wanted this page to look. I also got to use some of my older stash which I always am happy to do. Can you spot the old stuff? 

Actually I think the paper is old as well but the chipboard banner! I love banners and I love chipboard however for some reason I have never used these so on the page they went.

I used the Sketch N Scrap sketch #201 please share what you come up with.

Something a little different - Mad About Sketches

We are collaborating with Cookin up Creations where they are Mad About Sketches this month over at Sketch N Scrap!!!

We were asked to pick on our favorite sketches to be featured over there and I went with Sketch #112

I have been focusing on some stories from my 2013 album. These photos are some of the funniest I have ever taken as my middle daughter is making fun of me because I cannot peel hard boiled eggs. I had a total melt down one day when we were trying to make deviled eggs and I was in such a stressed out hurry I squeezed the eggs together and tossed them into the sink. She never lets me live it down. It has given us a million laughs and on this day she was making eggs and was struggling to peel them. She finally understood but still mocked and teased me as she pretended to be me. I caught it all on camera. For the journaling I asked her to text me what was going on in these photos so I have her version of the story.

The struggle is real folks! Can you peel eggs?

SNS Card Sketch #169

Today we have a fun card for you over at Sketch N Scrap!

Did you scrap your heart out over the weekend? I sure did. I was on crafty overload and might have even had a craft hangover on Monday. That is what I love about cards. They don't take as much time for me as a scrapbook page since I don't have to coordinate photos and journal and all that fun stuff.

Here is what I came up with today...though now that I am thinking about it I should have done something with a taco as I have a fun stamp with a taco...ok later my friends later. Until now you have ice-cream using one of my Pure Innocence girls.


Please join us all month long over at Sketch N Scrap we have a big birthday happening and all sorts of fun stuff. Hope to see you there :)

SNS NSD 2020

Whoo hooo hello everyone! Guess what day it is? You probably know it is National Scrapbook Day 2020!!!!

We have been working hard over at Sketch N Scrap this month so that we can have a wild time with all of you! This month also marks our 8th Birthday! We hope you enjoy all we have in store for you.

I was recently asked if I ever mix collections and where I fall on a scale of 1-10. Well I have to tell you I give myself a 1. I am terrible at it. However that really made me think why don't you mix and match?

I will tell you the truth, I am sensitive to color. Now that doesn't mean that I never have something look off or that I get it right every single time. I just find it easier to use the same companies line because then I don't have to worry about my colors not having the same saturation, tones, and depth.

I decided to give it a go for all of you thought! I have paper here from Close to my Heart, Bella Blvd, and a ephemera pack from Becki Adams. I went crazy! I also love how it ended up turning out.

I had some cute little candid shots of my little on reading one of her favorite books. These photos looked so cute  for this project and I love scrapping the everyday moments in life.

Well we hope that you will join us all month long for lot of fun and let us know if you like to mix manufacutres or if you stick to the same one when you scrap. Stop over at Sketch N Scrap we wil be doing fun stuff all month long!
