iNSD (weekend) What I Created

Hello Friends!
Today I am sharing the cards and layouts I created on iNSD weekend.
First off I have to tell you all that I joined in a crop over at the Memories in Thyme FB page.
I found this crop on the Sketches in Thyme blog, if you guys haven't checked that blog out yet you really should, especially if you love sketches.

These cards were for Challenge #1, use a cake on your project.


Challenge #2 was to be inspired by the layout they showed. I was inspired by the banner flags in the original layout.

Challenge #3 was to use a wheel on your project.
I pulled out my only stamp with a wheel and then went to pinterest to find some inspiration. I found Arlene's Create Space Blog and was inspired by Arlene B. to create this card, her project was from 6.15.11. I created 2 cards that are exactly the same.


Challenge #4 was to follow a sketch, of course I had to vary the sketch to make it my own.

Challenge #5 was to use watercolors.
I'm not much of a mixed media kind of girl, but I did something I've done before...created a blue and green background.

Challenge #6 was another sketch, and again, I modified it to fit my needs.

Challenge #7 was to be inspired to create a layout with the color combo in the inspiration layout.


Challenge #8 was to create a pocket page card using a sketch. I don't do much pocket page scrapping so I opted to make a Congrats card using the sketch.


Challenge #10 was to use a banner on your layout. The layout I created is actually for a Christmas album that I will add photos to in December.

Challenge #11 was to use bling on our layout. Again this is another layout for the gift album I am creating.

This layout is a layout I created using a sketch from Sketches in Thyme Blog, it's #197

And finally the remainder of the layouts are one's I created for a Christmas gift album.






And finally here is the video of all the cards and layouts I created over this special weekend.


That's it for today!

I was inspired to create this layout using a sketch from Pagemaps march 2016.

Our Boy--March 2016 CKC

Hello Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout using my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit.

The layout is of my grandson Cameron.

I was inspired to create the layout using a Pagemaps sketch from March 2016.

I added a title spot in this corner.

I layered a project life card under the wood frame and layered both of those on a glassine bag, then I added the journaling to a tag and slipped it into the bag.

I used a square doily behind the photo.

Here's a better look at the journaling tag.

Use Your Stuff Challenge--Ink


Hello Friends!!

Today I created a layout using my May 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit for the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is to get inky. Pull out your inks and use some on a layout.
I used ink to color the butterfly at the top of the layout, inked around the edges of the pattern papers, stamped the tag with best and today and used a sharpie to write of...so I did get some use of inks with this layout...just not so creatively as some of the other designers. 

I started the layout with a sketch from the Sketches in Thyme blog.

This was the first time I made a nest under an element. I added metallic gold thread to my kit and added some here.

I used a couple of papers from the 6x6 and 4x6 pads that were in my kit.

I used several of the scraps and border strips from my kit as well.

I even used a 4x6 pocket page card that I did some additional stamping on.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!!
I hope I see your link over at the UYS challenge blog!!
