I love sketches and hope you do too. This week’s challenge will be to create a layout using the sketch below as inspiration. Use some of the elements of the sketch, copy it exact or go completely crazy and truly make it your own. That’s the joy of sketches.
Here is my version of the sketch.

Scrapals - Week 1 Challenge

This weeks challenge is to learn to make a Tri Fold Shutter Card. When I first saw this card I thought it would be difficult to make. I watched the video and realized it is only 4 scores, two cuts then decorate. Quite easy after all. You can find written instructions and a video by going to SplitCoastStampers

I first made the first card for Robert's birthday in October with the help of my Cricut and the Paper Pups cart. The second card I thew today to have something new to share. Everything on the flowered card was hand cut and inked.

This challenge is for 3 points per card (for a max of three cards to go towards challenge).

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Baby Shower Favors


Let me start by saying that I work with a great group of ladies who helped me put 24 of these cute Mini Cup Cake boxes together. A BIG Thank you to Heather, Merci, Cathy, Tram and Debbie!
The box is made in Design Studio using Plantin Schoolbook, the scallop is Mini Monograms and the Pink Elephant is from New Arrival.
Heather had the idea of using up or scraps to make Thank you cards for Shweta (the co-worker the baby shower was for). Great Idea Heather!!
