Some Kind of Wonderful Team Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Thank you for joining the Team Brea-ers blog hop. We focus on a different paper pack each month and this months paper pack is called "Some Kind of Wonderful"!

If you have come from Emilys Scrap Room Then you are in the Right place!!

For my project I made the corporate layout but I think it will be an easy layout to add pictures to. Do you ever do that? make up layouts without the pictures? I do, and when I scrapbook I go through the layouts first to see if one will "fit" my pictures.  Here is the layout....

I also made a card....my friend had the bow in her stash and I think its just so cute!!
Please continue on to Sheena's Blog to see some more artwork with this paper pack!
I hope you have enjoyed our little blog hop. Please comment you were here and enjoyed our work, or found inspiration, it helps us to continue to post.
Until we meet again

Sketch #207

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This week for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I really wanted to think out side the box. Here is the sketch we are challenged to use...

I love the flowers but I need more boy cards, so I thought

oh the flowers could be stars and I carried on from there. Here is my card.....
I also used ink blot and the Artbooking cartride for the All star sentiment which I cut out from black glitter paper. What do you think? What will you do with this sketch?

ABC Blog Hop Featuring the letter "D"

Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter D.  This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their # element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Diana's Blog then you're on the right track!
    I thought it would be fun to join this blog hop featuring a different letter each time. This one is featuring D and I decided to do a card with DISTRESSING. I made the paper rose from the new Flowermarket Cartridge and ink distressed the petals and leaves were crumpled, sanded and inked.


Here is  a closeup of the flower......
I did the rose at 2" and it was tricky to get the center but it doesn't look to bad so I'm good with it.
Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Jen's Blog

In case you get lost along the way…go to Catherine Nowak's Blog for a complete list of participants!
Thank you for joining us
Till we craft again

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #201

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Welcome back! I cant believe we are on sketch #201! at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch.....
It fits in perfect with my spring fever, although the flowers can be any shape :) And here is my take....
I couldn't find the b&t I liked so I pulled out the fundamentals and this card came together very quickly after that. I think I put the flowers to far apart though and may need to adjust it but its kinda cute so I'm happy. Hope you will get to join us this week, we love seeing your creations.

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This months featured paper pack is Hello Lovely. I just love it!! its one of those paper packs that are really easy to use! For our Team Brea-ers   blog hop we will feature projects made with this paper pack. If you have come from emilys scraproom then you are in the right place. Here is my first project: This Layout uses the compliments. I found inspiration from Monique Create's layout but I used 4x6 photos and changed the papers and added ribbon.
I also made some cards, scraplifted this card from this site http://scrapstampshare.blogspot.ca/
And this card is an original I made for my mom. The flowers are from the January stamp of the month (I still love it) and coloured with my copic markers.

I hope you have gotten some inspiration. For more inspiration please continue on to Sheena's Blog.
Would love your comments, even if I don't reply its nice to read!
Come back tomorrow for the card I made for next week's Atlantic Hearts sketch Challenge

Sketch # 195

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge they have a great sketch for you! Here is the sketch..
Image may contain: text
I have made two cards, one horizontal as the sketch suggests and then one vertical..
 I also used the January stamp of the month, some left over paper from the card kit dreaming big and white glitter paper with the hearts thin cuts and markers to colour the flowers. I think they need more texture on the back ground.
Which one do you like best?
What will you make with this sketch?
