LCOM Sketch 123

It's time again, for a Let's Capture Our Memories sketch challenge. I found some old vintage cards that my Mom had saved so many years ago. As a little girl, I remember my Mother and her friend sitting at the table cutting apart cards like these and then paper piecing certain parts back together for a 2D effect. They would then frame the card and hang them on the wall for decoration. I thought that it would be fun to create a Mother's Day card using a few of them. At 92 years young, I wonder if my Mom will remember that this was one of  her cards from her craft stash. It will be interesting to see. 


Here is Shirley's fun card sketch 123.
 The May's prize is a $10.00 Let's Capture Our Memories store gift certificate. 


Product List:
Quality Crest: Vintage Cards
Stampin' Up!: Cardstock
Martha Stewart: Butterfly punch
Misc: Bling from my stash.

LGS Team B April Week 2

I love my fun loving boys. I smile every time that I look at these playful photos. When I saw Shirley's sketch at Let's Get Sketchy, I knew right away that I needed to set aside some scrappy time today, I grabbed some cool Echo Park stickers and papers and started creating.


Here is a side view of my embellishments.


I also embossed some thin steel and then cut it apart and added some of the pieces to my page. I really like the cool effect.


 I glued the smaller steel pieces to the paper and stapled the larger ones in place.


Here is the great sketch created by Shirley if you would like to play along.

LGS Week 3

I had some time today to play with this great sketch that can be found at Let's Get Sketchy for the Team A Week 3 challenge. I always wanted to do a layout with a rainbow of color. I am loving the look so much, do not be surprised if  that is all you will see on my blog for a while. My paper collection is Beautiful Life by Echo Park and my butterflies were punched from a Martha Stewart punch.


Here is the great sketch by Laura Whitaker.
