A Special Friend…

This design was a really quick one using patterned paper…stamped on of course! I’m loving that look these days. This particular layout came from this week’s CPS sketch and I played around with it a little to create my own version. The original sketch doesn’t call for a center opening card but I thought that scalloped line would be a perfect place to split the design and use a different fold for a change. It’s just like barn doors. When folding your cardstock, instead of folding in half…fold your outer edges to the middle. I attached a little piece of Natural cardstock that I scalloped the edge on to hide the seam. 🙂

Flourished Friend


This design uses stamps from the new Rummage Bin line from Cornish Heritage Farms. Also new and to be released later this week, a wonderful new sentiments set by Lisa Strahl. I LOVE it and it is going to be my reach for set on almost every design. If you’d like to try out this sketch layout you can check it out at CPS49. 🙂

Getting Messy….

Well…I’m feeling really out on a limb with this design. It was so much fun to create but I really stepped out of my box…OK OK I’m mixing my metaphors! You get the drift. You’re either going to like this card or hate it. LOL It’s taken me almost a week to get up the guts to post it. But I am…part of the thought behind my word for this year {embrace} was to try out new things. It’s fun!

Messy Hello


A really shabby funky painted look here that I’ve seen in some scrapbooking layouts. It seemed to go well with the new Ledger Me stamp set from the Rummage Bin line by Cornish Heritage farms. I LOVE the coffee ring and splatter stamps.

Have a fabulous day and stop back in tomorrow for the Ways to Use it Challenge. It’s an easy one for all to play. 🙂
