My Favorite Things, Color Challenge #68

Ohhh! Love the color combo for this week's challenge, don't you. I used it with the Up in The Air stamps and die sets by MFT for my simple "miss you" card.

I started with a light wash of light blue on watercolor paper for the sky background behind the clouds and balloons. Just enough to give it a little color and make it not so white.


This large balloon is attached with a wobble. I love using the wobbles, particularly for kids' cards, but they're not JUST for kids. They're just fun!

National Scrapbooking Day, 2017

Happy NSD crafty peeps! It's been way too long since I've been on the blog, but I am finally back. We had an awesome time spending the winter months in San Diego and - fingers crossed! - I hope we'll do it again next winter. We got home the first week of March and have been busy making lots of plans for some remodeling and upgrading here at home this spring and summer, thus my lack of paper crafting. It's been mostly planning, measuring, shopping and waiting as of now. Some of our materials are trickling in though, so it won't be much longer and I'll have a whole new bathroom. Yay!!! But I digress...this is about National Scrapbooking Day, so let's get back on track.

After being away from my favorite room in the house, as well as my all crafty toys and goodies, I finally got back to my room today and made a mother's day card. Truth be told, I was so bad at finding/making time to craft since we got home that I missed all our March birthdays (there are a lot of them, including both my parents, my daughter, and sister in law - eek) so I really would have had the guilts had I not made a card for mom's day. Which is what I am sharing today.

This gorgeous stamp is from the "Mom" set by My Creative Time. I just love the flower cluster. Isn't it so pretty in gold embossing. The mat looks almost black but it is more like a deep navy blue. The gold looks awesome on it in real life.


Mom's favorite color is blue. I used some of the lighter shades of Copics in the BG family. The 'mother' die is also included in the set. You can check them out here: My Creative Time.

Thanks for coming to the Studio today. I promise I'll be better about keeping up now that we are home and settled back into our old routines. Hope you're enjoying a crafty weekend with your favorite crafty friends!

Hugs,

My Favorite Things, Sketch #319

This week's sketch for My Favorite Things. I had to cut the circle by hand (thus, the choppy shape 😩) as I only brought with me a few versatile die sets, not including a circle.



But I'm pleased with this card, regardless. The adorable chubby chefs are some of my most faves by My Favorite Things. Isn't he adorbs!

My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge #318

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed appropriate to make another 'heart' card. Besides, I didn't bring nearly enough scrapping supplies with me so I'm having to create with what I have in my bag. LOL Hope you aren't getting tired of all them! ;)

The hearts are from the I'm Owl Yours set, sentiment from So Much Love, and the tag from Blueprints #13.


The super cute pattern papers are from the 6x6 paper pad, Kiss The Cook, by Bo Bunny. I love the colors in this collection.

You are fabulous - layout

I'm really enjoying getting back to scrapbooking! Who knew it would take a winter trip south to get going again. I'm glad I brought with me these super cute selfies of Grace for inspiration. Now, to get some pics of the other grands so I can add to their albums this year too! But for now, here is cutie patootie Grace, once again. 


Being away from my craft room, I've had to get creative with the few supplies I brought with me to San Diego. It's been fun and sometimes challenging but the results have been very satisfying. Stamps and dies are so very versatile and I think we sometimes forget how many ways they can be used in addition to card making.

My Favorite Things, Stitched Scallop Basic Edges #2 dies

Miss Grace, layout #2

Another of my fave selfies of Grace from 2016. I love her adorableness, but then I always have and she IS my own first grandgirl!


The sentiment strips are actually stickers I bought for my planner. But when you're crafting on the road/away from home you don't have your whole craftroom to choose from when selecting supplies for your projects. The trees are all from the My Favorite Things, Deer Friends stamps and dies.

Hello Sunshine


First scrapbook layout in a few years. I know!! Damn cell phone cameras, anyway -- I have to snag pics of the kids from their Instagram accounts or keep reminding them to send me some! Haha. Anyway, I LOVE this pic of Grace and decided to use it for my return to scrapbooking.
