Hello and happy Tuesday. I haven't had any time the last two weeks for any crafting but I did manage to make a graduation card. I made this card for a boy. I used a brass stencil die for the sentiment on Core'dinations Black Magic paper. Thanks for looking!

NSD & Basic Grey: Sketch Challenge

Here is yet another National Scrapbooking Day challenge layout for Basic Grey. This was a sketch challenge. I really liked the sketch and I had the perfect pictures of my older daughter doing some archery. BUT whoever took the pictures took them at such a low resolution (or maybe Facebook resized them) that they could only be print at wallet sizes. I finally found these pictures and I think it came out great. For a bonus, the layout already in the album that is next to this one is the same line of paper! I used Basic Grey Origins for this layout. Thanks for looking!

Another National Scrapbooking Day challenge with Basic Grey! This time the challenge was to use vintage Basic Grey papers I think most of my papers are now vintage. SO I need to use them up so I can buy more BG {giggle}. I used Figgy Pudding for this layout.

Scrap Book Page Swap - Part 2

Here is the single page layout I made for my secret sister over at SCS for the scrap book page swap. The theme was Happiness Is... and you had to have that phrase somewhere on the layout. Originally I was going to cut out the image from a SVG file but then after I got it all ready to go I realized how many small pieces there were. Now one or two itty bitty, microscopic pieces are ok but three or more can be pushing it! Especially if any are white. For some reason I can't seem to get teeny tiny pieces to cut properly in white no matter what brand of card stock. So after I wasted an hour getting it ready to cut, I went to the computer and printed an image! My fellow Pink Pajama Party Girl Carole had recently demonstrated how to cut a shape with the die and leave a part of the image outside of the die cut. I knew this technique would work for this! I also printed the journaling on the computer before I cut it out with the die.

Best part is the layout was received today by my secret sister and according to her son, my layout "totally rocks."
