Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #293

Good Morning, Stampers!


The Paper Players are back today with a simple
card sketch! Card sketches are a great way to get
started when you need a little help with design!


I love to use card sketches! They get me going, but then I tend to 
go off and do a little of my own thing to it as well. Today's sketch
was so fun though, so I kept it fairly close to the original layout.
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Awesomely Artistic
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, DSP
Accessories: Layering Oval framelits, Very Vanilla Baker's Twine, Mini Black Sequin Trim, BLender Pen, Berry Burst Enamel Dots, Lovely Floral embossing folder

We would love to have you join us in creating
with this sketch! Get the details at the Paper Craft Crew
and play along!

May Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop - Florals

Good Morning, Stampers!




This month for Scrapbook Sunday, we are focusing our 
pages on a floral theme. Flowers can be used for any
occasion, event or scene - so versatile!


My 6" x 6" page features the Share What You Love Specialty
paper. With so many gorgeous shimmery prints in this pack, 
it was easy to create this page highlighting a little bit of each one.
(Definitely lots of fussy cutting going on here!) It's simple to 
personalize with the letters for a one-of-a-kind page, too!

SU!pplies:
Paper: Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Tranquil Tide, Old Olive, Mint Macaron, 
Basic Black, Share What You Love DSP
Accessories: Layering Circles framelits, Seasonal Layers thinlits, Large Letter framelits
