Come Join Us At LCOM.

It's time to play with another wonderful sketch from LCOM. When I saw this sketch, I envisioned a spring themed card. Going through my stash. I found the perfect collection that totally screamed spring from BasicGray. This collection has an awesome color palette. I created each square to represent springtime....birds nesting, butterflies flying, flowers blooming and don't forget about the sweet Easter bunny, 

Here is my reveal:

A Fun Magnetic Box Tutorial

I don't know about you, but I just love decorating for the holidays and seasons. With that being said, I came up with creating a changeable magnetic box. The fact that I change the look completely by using different photos, papers and embellishment makes this project a winner in my book.


First, you need to measure your box and cut the steel to fit. You need to be careful with the steel because the edges can be sharp and you can cut yourself. I embossed the top just for fun just to see what my steel would look like. 


The next step is to glue your steel into place. I used some hot glue and it worked just fine.


I then cut my cardstock to fit the box, made my embellishments and glued magnets to the back. 


I also added some magnets to the sides of my box to hold some of my embellishments in place. 


I can't wait for next month to show you what I have planned for my box.

I am entering my project in S.W.A.T. Drill #50 Love Mood Board. My inspiration was the color red,  the hearts and flowers.




Supply List:
Wooden Box
Steel and Magnets
Stampin' Up!: embossing folder and twine

Simple and Sweet!

Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch #44 has a great card sketch to play with. Wanting to keep it simple and to keep the focus on the center design, I just skipped all the paper background layering and replaced it with some line art. I really liked how this card turned out. 


Here is what the sketch looks like:

That Boy can SING!

Being in a scrappy mood, I decided to take on a Feb. double pager sketch challenge at ScrapMuch?

Here is my take:


and here is a closer view of each page. 
I decided to get a little messy with this one. My papers and stickers are from Echo Park. My ink, stamp and punches are from Stampin' Up! My bling is from Daiso. I had such a blast playing with this sketch that I ended up with blue inky fingers.



Here is Laura's sketch if you would like to join in the fun!

Made With Love.

I can not believe that this is my first layout of the month. I found this sweet photo of my son sitting between these handmade dolls that his Great Grandmother made for him. That was an amazing amount of work.....and it was all made with love. My printed cardstock along with all of the embellishments are from Echo Park. The little bling red hearts came for Michael's dollar bin


Here is the My Scraps & More Sketch #99 that I played with.

Happy Heart Day!

Hi Everyone! Let's Capture our Memories has a new sketch today. We were asked to create a project using a Love theme.
 I used these gorgeous papers by Recollections to create my Love card. I made my own embellishments by cutting out some of the images that were printed on the cardstock. I added some pop-up dots to the backs of the embellishments and some bling to the fronts to give the card more dimension. I just love this great color combo. It's one of my favorites to scrap with. My only wish is that the color black would an easier color to photograph. 


Here is the Emma Stafrace sketch if you would like to play along:


I am going to enter this card into two different challenges.

Product List:
Recollections: printed and red cardstock
Stampin' Up!: heart die, white cardstock, ink and clear bling
Misc: vintage heart doily and red heart bling

I can't wait to see what you will create!
Thanks for looking!

Just Us

For my Design Team reveal at Let's Capture Our Memories, I made this adorable Valentine's card for my hubby. It was so much fun to make using my Stampin' Up! punches along with some great papers from K&Company. I am also entering my card in the Paper Issue challenge "The Perfect Pairing". My owls do make a perfect pair if I do say so myself.


Look how cute my owls came out! I love how the owls and all of the embellishments were made using the same owl punch, minus the flower on the top of her head. The rose was a print on my paper that I fussy cut. To create the boy, I punched two hearts for the bow tie the three little circles for his buttons. For the girl, I wanted her to be all dressed up, so I added some punched circles and hearts to the bottom of her dress to make it fancy. 


Here is the sketch created by the talented Shirley Mijares Mascarina:


I hope that I you will be able to join us and play along with this great sketch challenge. I would love to see what you create!
