Yes! You are seeing correctly!
I have not forgotten how to sew! I know I've been all paper lately, but I dug out my sewing machine recently to get back to my primitive crafting. I have some new designs I'm working on at the moment. Here is a box of items just waiting to be painted...
And a tray of items waiting to be sanded and finished...
Stay tuned for some finished photos!

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #37

Here we go again to day with another wonderful sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap. I just love this one and I had a lot of fun putting my layout together. As I did in the July 1st layout, I dug through my Christmas photos. I even used the same main paper for my layout. Make sure you upload your layout to the SNS site!
For this layout I chose 3 photos of Brileigh opening her Christmas presents. She is such a little diva and was excited to get some new princess things! There are a handful of different companies represented in this layout just like the July 1st.
My title piece, (okay are you tired of hearing this?) was cut out with my cricut. Once I typed the words out in Adobe Illustrator, I tweaked them a bit so it came on in one piece. I covered the letters with Glossy Accents to give it shine.
Products I used in this layout:
Echo Park • Seasons Greetings • Ornaments
Fancy Pants • Saint Nick • Tinsel
Fancy Pants • Saint Nick • Sugar Plum
Fancy Pants • Saint Nick • Noel
Cosmo Cricut • Jolly by Golly • Elements
Bo Bunny • Blitzen • Noteworthy

Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch Challenge

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! We had a couple parties and the kids did pretty well. The first party they were a little scared of the fireworks but the second one they were pro's!

I had some time to get a card done for the Sketch-N-Scrap card challenge today. Stop over at the SNS blog to check out the card and layout sketches for July and upload your take on them for a chance to win great prizes!

Don't forget we also have a search going on for Guest Designers and you have until July 10 to get that info to me. Check down a couple posts for that information or get a hold of me.

Here is the Card Sketch for today. How fun does that look with all of the pennants?
 Here is the card I made based on the sketch:
My nephew had a birthday so this is just perfect for him!
Just for fun I made a pocket in the middle with the little car tag. Head on over to SNS to upload your take! Have Fun!

Sketch N Scrap Challenge #36

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... Well, at least in my craft room! What better way to cool off on a July afternoon, than to dig out some Christmas photos that need scraping?  I used this awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap to base my layout on. Make sure you head over to the SNS blog to upload your take on the sketch and get in on the chance to win prizes!
The kids really got the hang of the present thing this last Christmas and it was fun to watch their reactions as they opened their presents. I used a lot of different brands to put this layout together, it's always fun to dig through a stash and mix and match papers and elements.
For my journal spot I used a Noteworthy die cut from Bo Bunny and added a little bakers twine for dimension.
My title piece was cut out with my cricut and I kept it small and simple as the rest of the layout has a lot of layers and color.
Last, I added some stickles to a snowflake chipboard piece to give it some extra pazazz. When using your embellishments don't be afraid to change them up a bit with glitter and inks!
Products I used in this layout:
Echo Park • Seasons Greetings • Ornaments
Echo Park • Seasons Greetings • Chipboard Accents
Crate Paper • Peppermint Collection • Candy Cane
Crate Paper • Snow Day Collection • Festive
Bo Bunny • Blitzen • Noteworthy
Glitz • Teeny Alpha • Rose Grunge
