Ok, this is it for tonight.  I am really enjoying these sketches and will continue to use them but I am getting ready to start a 50 hour work week so I think it is time to call it quits.  This weekend has been great though.  Housework done early on Saturday, got the hubby to do the grocery shopping today so I stayed relaxed in my craft space making cards.

PTI 6th Anniversary Sketch Challenge - Entry 2

The next sketch that got my attention was Sketch #1


This prompted two cards - the first is below:

Papertrey Ink Supplies:

  • Vintage Cream cardstock for the card base
  • Dark Chocolate Ink
  • Heart Prints Stamp Set for the sentiment
  • Heart Prints coordinating die - medium heart
  • Autumn Rose Button
  • Rustic Cream Button Twine 

Other Supplies:

  • ATG for the adhesive
  • Recollections medium adhesive dot for the button
  • Heidi Grace Designs two sided paper; pinkish on one side printed love sayings on the other (don't know the name of the sheet - sorry) 
I flipped the sentiment and the button from the sketch because I needed the button to cover up two tiny little mishaps on the right side of the card.  Thanks for looking.

PTI 6th Anniversary Sketch Challenge - Entry 1

Happy Sunday Everyone - I got all of my typical Sunday chores done yesterday so when I read the blog post from Papertrey Ink today with a Sketch Challenge attached I was excited that I would have time to participate.  I haven't done a PTI challenge in a bit and I love when they provide a few sketches because that really gets my inspiration swirling.  
 The first sketch that caught my attention was Sketch #3... 


Here is my entry

I looked at my calendar to see what events were coming up and figured I would make an anniversary card for my parents.  Mine and my hubby's anniversary is in early March but I will use a different card for him.  I was tickled when I dumped out my PTI Dark Chocolate buttons and found the heart one buried among all of the round ones and knew it was perfect for this card.  I also was able to find a coordinating string to sew them on with.  The list of supplies is below.
Papertrey Ink Supplies:

  • Vintage Cream Cardstock for the base
  • Dark Chocolate Ink
  • Dark Chocolate Buttons
  • Sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages stamp set

Other Supplies:

  • DCWV Linen Closet Stack for the patterned paper
  • We R Memory Keepers Seweasy floss - Misty Morn
  • ATG for adhesive

Thanks for looking!  Leslie



Christmas in...February??...

Just like normal I haven't posted in a bit so none of my many Christmas projects were posted to my blog anywhere near Christmas time.  I am going to post my pictures below and will try and quickly overview the products used for each project:

The three pictures above were a gift bag I made for my Secret Santa swap at work.  I used a white lunch bag and some scrapbook paper to create the bag, the ribbon, button and glitter alphabet stickers are from Michaels and the tag is the Santa from the Papertrey Ink Winter Snow Globe stamp set and matching dies.  I colored in Santa with my Copics.

Another gift bag made with a lunch bag and scrapbook paper.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #20 Mini Set and the Holly Leaf is from their Holiday Button Bits stamp and die sets.

 This card was given to my immediate family on my Mom's side this year (6 cards).  I really liked the Snow Globe Set from Papertrey Ink and also the Think Big Favorites #20 Mini Set for the sentiment.  The ribbon is again from Michaels.

Last, but not least, are the cards that I made for my coworkers (10 cards).  I used Papertrey Ink Blueberry Sky paper and ink, with the Snowman and Globe from their Winter Snow Globe set.  The inside sentiment is from their Over Under Easy Holiday Additions set.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug but I don't recall the design name.  I purchased the Snow Globe set because our office has an annual door decorating contest and this year we made a snow globe out of a beach ball and put a snowman inside...thus the inspiration for the cards for my coworkers was born.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my Christmas projects in February.  Leslie
