Saturday's Sketch Share (On Monday)!

Hello!  Did you think I forgot to show you the weekly cards?  No, just busy.  Last week we had fall cards, now we are switching to holiday ones.  I will show you my card, Debbie's card and the sketch we both used.  I also have a bonus card to show you.  It is done with similar papers and different colors, but basically the same card. Enjoy!

My Bonus Card, Same but different!
I wasn't too sure about the sketch at first, but after creating my card, I think I like it.  You do need a smaller image, however, Debbie's image was a little larger and it worked too!  So, that helps to give a couple different ideas for the same sketch, which is what our two cards every week are supposed to do!  Do you like the cards and the sketch this week?

I am done teaching for the year.  And I already have an idea about my January class but I can't think about that yet, as I have a bunch of Christmas cards to make. My plan is to design one and make several of that one and then go on to the next one, so hopefully, as that happens, I can get them on here to share. 

See you soon!
Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share (On Sunday)!

Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I have two more cards with a Thanksgiving theme to show you today with the share between Debbie and I.  Enjoy!

My Card
 

Debbie's Card
 
The Sketch
As you can see, it is one of the skinny card sketches, but I see no reason why this sketch would not work for a regular A2 size card.  Debbie and both loved the sketch, and you can see why!  So versatile!  I guess you will start seeing Christmas from both of us every week.  I am not sure what the next few week's sketches are but I hope they are good ones as I will need to be making more than one so I have enough cards to send out!  But, first, I have one last class to prep for and teach this week! 

Happy Stamping!

A Catch Up with Two Baby Cards and a Wedding Card!

Hello!  I see that I have three cards that were given or sent in the last couple of months so I have decided to show you all three in one catch up post.  I am "supposed" to be cleaning house for family coming on Thanksgiving, but anything I can do that is not that, I am on it!  Ha, Ha.  Enjoy!

First up is a card I made for my new Great Niece.  I had gotten these tiny baby icon dies that I wanted to use so I had to do another shaker card! 

 
 Can you see them?  There are rattles, pins and ducks! I added some light pink beads and sequins too!  I found out at the shower that she has some owls in the baby's room, so that is why I went with the owl theme.  I used more paper left over from when I made her baby book and I did the sentiment on the computer in the same font too!  Came out pretty cute!

Next, I have a boy baby card, that I made for a friend at church.  I made a similar one a while back and so I just cased it! 


And then last but not least, I have a wedding card that I made for Gary's grandson who got married.  I used a heart die that I got way back in the summer.  Love it ... 

 
 
It looks a little blue but really is Silver shimmer cardstock.  I did their names on the computer to personalize it.  Here it is opened ...


The heart die border creates a pocket where I added money. 

I hope you have a Great Thanksgiving with family and friends!  I will see you on Saturday for one last Thanksgiving card creation for the share.

Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share Doubled!

Hello!  Today I have both last week's share and this week's share for you!  What is interesting is one is a vertical card and one is a horizontal card.  It is if I planned it, but you know I didn't, as you know I am late only because of my crazy class last week!  So, let's do it.  I am going to show you my card, Debbie's card and the sketch and then repeat the process!  And then I'll give my two cents about all of them!  Enjoy!

The Sketch
I had received Debbie's squirrel card before I made my squirrel card, but I didn't remember she had done a squirrel, so that was not planned.  I think it is humorous though, especially since the squirrels around my house have been having a hay day way up high in the trees dropping acorns.  When the acorns hit our metal carport it sounds like the sky is falling!  As far as the sketch goes on that one, I think it is a pretty good one and you can see that anything can be substituted for the stars on the sketch.  Speaking of the stars, when I saw the stars on the sketch on Monday, I thought of the fact that I was going on Monday night to help the Blue Star Mothers pack boxes to send to the troops and usually Donna and I make cards to add to the boxes.  Donna is still with her mom at the hospital, so I thought I needed to figure out how to turn this card into a dual purpose.  I couldn't make the sketch with the stars work, the squirrel idea was better for that one.  But, I did on the second card.  It is half Christmas and half patriotic!  It worked.  This sketch both Debbie and I liked.  And of course, it being an horizontal one is good, as there are not as many of those sketch layouts.  Do you like the cards, the sketches?  What is your take?

Happy Stamping!

December Class Share!

Hello!  Did you think the crazy class got the best of me and that is why you didn't see me last week?  Well, it almost did.  I usually have both my Wed. and Sat. classes prepped  before the Wed. class, but not last week.  After teaching on Wed., I still had a bunch of die cutting and kitting to do for the Sat. class.  I think I finished and was ready for the Sat. class at 9 p.m. on Friday night!  So, needless to say, I didn't get the weekly card created.  So, this week, I played a little catch up and got both last week's share card and this week's share card done.  I think I will give you a double dose of shares on Saturday, so be sure to look for that post.  Next, was the task of getting my class samples made for my December class, which is only two weeks away!  Traditionally, for my December class I do some tags, usually three to four, a gift card holder and sometimes another something, like last year, I think we did a wine bottle tag topper.  This year, there are four projects which include a gift card holder, a treat box, and two tags.  I decided to stop at two tags because they both have a lot going on and quite a few steps for each.  I can't wait to show you them ... so let's do it!  Enjoy!

First, I found a super easy idea for a gift card holder.  Did I mention that all four projects feature Lawn Fawn stamps and dies? 

Here is the front of the gift card holder...
 

 
 And then when you open it up, the gift card pops up ...

 
Next, is the treat box with the Lawn Fawn tiny tag.  This box is a pretty good size that could hold candy or even a small gift.  The base is made from one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock and then decorated!
 
 
Here is a side view of the box ...

Now, let me show you the tags.  The first one is a  smaller, tag version of a card I taught a few months ago.  So cute ...

First, the tag closed ...


And opened ...


Last but not least, is a shaker tag ...


I love all four projects in this class.  If you do too, and would like to come to class or interested in a kit, let me know or call The Crafty Scrapper at 972-923-3151.  Here are the class details ...

Gifting with Lawn Fawn!  Wed. Nov. 30th 11:00 a.m. and Dec. 3rd 2:30 p.m. $28

In this class you will create four projects all using Lawn Fawn holiday stamps and dies.  First, there is a gift card holder that has a fun inside pop up.  Next, is a treat box with a tiny tag embellishment,  Then there are two tags, one, a fun tag version of the double z fold card we made in a recent class, and last but not least, you will create an adorable shaker tag.  Please bring adhesive to include micro glue dots, pop up dots, scor-tape in 1/8", a ruler, a bone folder and your preferred coloring medium.  (Copics I used: GC holder: E31, E35, R21, R27, G07, G12, Tag 1: B000, R27, BG75, YR14, Tag 2: B01, R24, Y15, N1, E25, E29, YG09).  All other supplies provided.

See you tomorrow for the double share!
Happy Stamping!

Saturday Sketch Share!

Hello!  I am here on time, that is a big wow, since I am in the middle of prepping for my crazy class!  My class is full which is awesome but that means that every die cut has to be cut 72 times, see why I say crazy?  Okay, let's get to the share so I can get back to the craziness!  I will show you my card, Debbie's card, and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!

The Sketch
As you can see, we have now switched to fall cards.  Love how both of them came out.  This sketch is kinda fun and always glad to have horizontal sketches in my idea box.  No, I don't actually have a box but it is a good idea.  Print off favorites and add to a box with categories like horizontal or vertical or even with circles, ovals, etc.  It is a thought, but it won't be this week!  Anyway, I hope you like the cards this week. 

I think I still have maybe two or three cards I need to get on here to show you, at some point.  The two weeks prior to this week, I have been working on the crazy class just not all day, every day.  This week I kicked it into high gear and that is pretty much all I have done for several days now.  Four more days to class.  Yikes! 

Have a great weekend!
Happy Stamping!
