W2SB June Challenge - Oh the Places You'll Go

This month's challenge over at is based on one of my favorite books - Oh, the Places You'll Go.  This Dr. Seuss book is all about the adventures life brings us, graduations, weddings, new homes, new jobs...

Here is my offering:

I got a new cutter for Mother's Day, and made a shaped card.  I burred out the school name and year (safety first!!).  I added a small brad to the middle of the mortarboard.  Not bad for my first try in Make the Cut!!!

OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge #224


Sigh.  This was the third, and "least bad" of my attempts.  It's going to join its friends in the trash.  Thought I would share that everyone makes junk sometimes.  Better luck next week...

ODBD May Challenge - Embossing

I LOVE dry embossing, and try to incorporate the technique into every card I make.  I don't always succeed, but I do make an attempt.  Texture is a wonderful addition to most cards, and adds that "something special". 

Here is my response to the Our Daily Bread Designs May Challenge to use embossing on a card:

My Favorite Things image and sentiment, Jelly Roll on her heart, I "think" all of the embossing folders are Cuttlebug. 

OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge #223

This week's challenge and my response:


Stamper's Best image, Safari patterned paper, TPC Studios sentiment, Offray ribbon.  A bit more subtle that I had intended, but I like it!!

National Scrapbooking Day REBEL!!!!

Yep.  I am a rebel.  Instead of scrapbooking, I made cards!!  I hit up a sale this morning, and bought a bunch of 6x6 paper pads from between $1.35 and $2.69 each!!!  Carta Bella, Echo Park, Paper Studio, all really good stuff.

So I went back to Katherine's 6x6 cutting formula to make some missing you cards.  

Here are a few:

Cuttlebug die cut using DCWV adhesive paper, Carts Bella Giddy Up patterned paper, Fiskars Crocodile texture plate.

Words2ScrapBy May Challenge - Bloom When You Are Planted

Sybrina has come up with a great challenge for us this month - Bloom where you are planted.  I interpreted this as we should do our best to be happy no matter what our circumstance. 

I love these tiny Close To My Heart Woodland Sentiments, but they are so hard to photograph!  It reads - "The happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery when on a detour."  Operation Write Home Sketch #171.  Flocked paper DCWV La Creme.
