Squeeze A Palooza #2

I made this card for Squeeze a Palooza. Squeeze A Palooza is a challenge from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and the theme this month is Christmas. I used the Christmas Treats set for the sentiment and the little candy cane on the end. The paper and embellies are from my Paper Made Bakery Kit.

Anything But a Card Challenge 7

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing my project for the Anything But a Card challenge blog.

  We are moving to the sea for inspiration for this challenge- you can use anything sea/ocean related- colors, marine life, mermaids, beaches, sand, etc. and/or let the picture inspire you!

My project is a page from my Instagram mini Smashbook. I love Smashbooks and this book had been a fun way to share my Instagrams since they are too small for a 12x12 LO. Can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge.

Little Tangles #1

Neat and Tangled makes some super cute stamps and I recently took advantage of free shipping to treat myself to this set Little Bear. I got my stamps just in time for the new Neat and Tangled challenge blog Little Tangles. The challenge is to make a card to say hello. I created this simple scene card with stamps from Little Bear and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn. Check out the challenge blog for your chance to win!

ABAC Challenge 6: A Stitch in Time

This week the challenge at Anything But a Card is A Stitch in Time. You can use any element that represents time- watch, clock, clock parts, stopwatch, hour glass, calendar, dates, postage stamps, etc  AND/OR stitching- real or faux! I hope you will be able to join us and share your project by next Saturday.

This week I'm showcasing my album for my trip to France last spring. There are lots of elements of time in this album because there are calendars and dates to keep track of events.

My album was made with a Smash book base and which I think made the album so quick and easy. I'm not the most up to date scrapbooker so I was happy to have a simple way to make sure that this album got done. 

Everyone was asking about the trip and it was great to be able to simply hand them the scrapbook.

Paper Made Bakery October Kit

 I wanted to share all the cards I made with the October Paper Made Bakery Kit. There is enough material including cardstock to make 10 cards but there is always plenty leftover and of course the stamp set keeps giving. 

As you can tell from my cards, the bees and bird from the Fresh Squeezed The Sweet Life stamp set were my favorite.

The Bazzill Basics Avalon collection and stickers were also fun to play with.

The variety of buttons and ribbon also force me to get a little creative because I tend to stick to just patterned paper even though I own tons of fun embellies.

I packaged up most of the leftovers with some additional cardstock to pass on the my sister and I'm sure she'll get another about 8 cards out of it. Love these kits!

CAS(E) this Sketch #4

I love the sketches at CAS(E) this Sketch but I also love patterned paper so it's a bit tricky for me to be as CAS as others but I'm trying. I created this card with my Paper Made Bakery kit from October. The November kit was revealed yesterday so be sure to check it out. Can't wait for mine! Anyway those little flowers and the sentiment are from the Fresh Squeezed Stamp Sweet Life set. Check out the sketch below. Thanks for stopping by!
