Documenting Life - week 3

Quick post because it is a quick project... Week 3 of my Documenting Life album.

I snapped this photo today while on a weekly walk with my grand daughter. Of course it had to make it's way into my album :) Love our runs through the woods... (kills a good hour we spend up to an hour running through the various trails).

See that stamp?! Don't you LOVE it?! It is the March SOTM... so stay tuned, you can get it in March!


Sketchy Saturday with a 6th Birthday Wiggler

For my card today, I have used the Something Fierce collection to create yet another card for a little kiddo in my class. Of course, it will be for next fall because at this time in the year they are turning 7.

Basically just some simple layering of the pattern paper in the pack and of course adding some stitching.

I cut the tree and dinosaur from the pattern paper. The dinosaur is mounted on a wiggler so that it well... wiggles. I know a little one would love that :)  I then just added a '6' from the Complements

I love Karen's take on last week's sketch:

Now I would love to see your take on this week's sketch:

Heartfelt Sympathy

I have another sympathy card to share today. I will be making a package up of maybe 5 of them for my mom, she wants to have some on hand. Honestly, not my favorite cards to make.

Once again, I have used the Feels Like Home pack.  I used the Stitched Square frames to create the frame.

I then fussy cut the flowers, leaves and heart from the pattern paper. I adhered the flower and leaves and then added the stitching. I stamped the sentiment from the Know That I Care stamp set. I mounted the heart on foam circles then added a twine bow. 

I then added a couple of Silver Glitter Gems

Inspired By... let's huddle

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create this 'cool' card which will most likely go to a little guy in my class. 

I have kept it pretty simple (have you ever seen inside a grade ones backpack? - they are not neat :) ) I love that little bear which is part of a stamp set that ONLY hostess are able to purchase! If you live in Canada... I'd be happy to do an online party for you!

Anyways, I used the striped paper from the Mix Ins.  The card base is the Sapphire Cardstock and I have used some White Daisy along with Kraft cardstock. 

The sentiment is the Card Captions - SOTM

Now here is the inspiration photo... come on over and play!

Sorry for your loss

Switching gears here a bit... my mom has requested some sympathy cards so I will be making her a set using the Feels Like Home collection - so gorgeous!

I just layered some of the papers then fussy cut the flowers and butterfly from the pattern papers. I stitched the butterfly down and then added a sentiment from the Know That I Care stamp set

As a final touch I added a ribbon bow

Caffeinated Inspiration - Chambray Dreams

I am up on the CLC blog today sharing this card for my Caffeinated Inspiration challenge. 

I have combined the Heart Happy papers with the striped paper from the Mix Ins. 

The sentiment is from last season and the donut is a die from last year. 

Here is the inspiration... come on over and play (click on photo)

Is it the weekend yet?

If you are in the Inspired By Facebook group you know that I have started to add a sketch each week for the challenge.

For this week's challenge - I used the inspiration colors once again and created this card based on the sketch.

The paper is the Something Fierce pack (a dinosaur themed pack) and I thought it would make a good 'workday/monday' type of card.  The Rawr is from the Something Fierce Complements... I'm sure some of us have felt this way before coffee. 

I then used the upcoming March SOTM for the stamped sentiment. The bubble and mugs are on foam squares. 

I used the letter stickers from the So Much Happy Complements

Now if you want to see the sketch... you have to be in the Inspired By Facebook group :)
