Inspired by others

This is a color challenge from Diva Coffee Break Designs and the sketch is from Mojo Monday.

The colors are definitely out of my realm!

They are Basic Gray, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, and Green Galore.

I really enjoyed using sketch for inspiration instead of using my own creative abilities. (It was much easier)

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Lady bug gift

Yummy and cute.

One of my club members, Trenda Garrett, gave this to me at our February meeting. I thought I would share it with all of you also. Thank you, Trenda!!! You can never go wrong with a Chocolate and Almond candy bar!!

I love how this card came together so fast!!
The designer paper is from the Sale A Bration mini catalog. It is called Delicate Dots. It coordinates nicely with the Bashful Blue. I used Very Vanilla ribbon and it matches nicely, also. The cherish stamp is from a set called Warm Words.

Easy 6x6 pages

Aren't these adorable? I made these for a class I was doing last weekend. I was showing how easy pages can come together without a lot of time and just a few simple items. The descriptions are in the next two posts. Thank you for looking today!!

A 6x6 for Sale A Bration

This is a easy-peasy way to show off how simple it is to put together a 6x6 scrapbook page. The paper is So Saffron, Certainly Celery, and Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper (from the SAB mini) The stamp set is also from the mini, it is called Polka Dot Punches. These are nice spring pastel colors.

Friend 6x6

This is a simple 6x6 scrapbook page that I made for a class. I used the designer series paper from the Sale A Bration mini catalog. I also used Certainly Celery and Whisper White to coordinate with the paper.

Happiness Is

This is a card that I used the brayer tech for again. I versamarked the "white" flower and then brayered Baja Breeze over them. The versamark makes the glossy paper resist any color you ink over it. Then I stamped the chocolate chip flower onto the glossy paper. I found that they don't dry very fast so you can heat set them for a little faster drying. I then just made a small knot out of the choc chip gingham ribbon and used a glue dot to attach it to the card.
I stamped the happy birthday to the bottom.
The cardstock used for this is Baja Breeze and Choc Chip. I used glossy paper from Stampin' Up!
The stamp sets I used are Little Flowers and Happy Everything.
Thanks for looking today!

A little yummy for your tummy

What an easy project for my club!!

This is called a diaper fold, I need to think of a different name for this, after having a home daycare for many years that last thing I want to think of are diapers. At least this one has a good treat inside. Sorry for that visual!! Any way this is really a cute project and so simple to put together.

The fold is pretty simple, you just need a square piece of paper, I used a 8 1/2" square. I made one with a 12" square but it turned out really big and I used a 6" square and it was too small (sounds like Goldilocks, lol) anyway, fold the square into a triangle and then bring one side up to the center of the opposite side and then fold the other side over top the side you just folded. Then fold down the top piece of the triangle this will hold the two pieces you just folded. I know you are reading this and going "Huh" but once you do it you will get what I just said. If you just can't see it (I don't blame you) you can go to splitcoaststampers and they have a wonderful explanation with pictures.

After you figure out the folding then you can embellish as you like. I used the designer series paper called Sweet Always. And the stamp set is from Sale a Bration called Yummy. I filled it up with tootsie rolls and tied it with some choc chip ribbon.

Wild about you

What do you think of that adorable alligator (or crocodile) with the googlie eyeballs? I finally tried the tech of masking. I am using the brayer for my club this month and I love how this turned out with the Wild About You stamp set.

I tried to make the scrap page both girlie and boyish so I think the purple and green combo will work for that.

For this tech all you need is a brayer, glossy paper ( I love this stuff), and a piece of computer paper that is ripped. The alligator/croc is versa marked on the glossy paper and it will resist the ink that you brayer over the glossy paper. Starting with the lightest color of ink, cover the glossy paper entirely with the ink and then put the comp paper where you like on the glossy paper and choose the next color (a little darker) and roll it on the paper. Continue to do this with as many colors as you like, just get a little darker each time.

I love the way this turned out and I hope my club will also.
