Organize Craft Room v. Making a Card

What do you think won in this battle?  I found this little owl and then remembered this sketch from Card Patterns and the challenge from my friend Stacy! It also fits Simon Says Stamp anything goes.  How could I resist?

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday

I quickly made this card for The Paper Variety's fan fold embellishments.  I used a sketch from one of my friend Stacy's challenges

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love you Always

Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card that I made for my husband using a double box flower! I’ll show you how to make one, too! They are so fun and easy to make.  I made it for my guest design post at Crafter's Companion.  The elephant is from the Humphrey's collection. She is a birthday girl, but I've used her for Christmas and Valentine's already! :-)

 First, make 4 same-sized scallops:

Second, crumple the scallops:

Third, fold the scallops in half:

Add the glue a little off center!

Glue together in a box fashion. You are finished!

You can stack them! Here, I've stacked two flowers with a big eyelet!

I made this layout of all of the Massman boys and their wives! We had these fun photos taken when we had some group family photos taken in November.  I made it using Sketchy Thursday's LAST sketch. Boo hoo! I love their sketches! Anyway, I finished it this evening just in time to enter into The Paper Variety's challenge to use black/white and a kiss of color.  The sketch and prompt seemed to go perfectly with the photos!!!! Don't you agree?

Thanks for visiting!

Justin - Senior 2011

Here's a two-page layout that has been sitting on my "work in progress" shelf for a long time. I used a lot of CTMH products on it! These are some of our nephew Justin's senior photos. I added the dragonflies in memory of his little brother who died last year. I'm going to enter it in Simon Says....SPOTS &/or STRIPES challenge as well as my friend Stacy's challenge.  You can see spots all over if you look carefully!

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day!

Valentine's Card

Here's a little Valentine card I made for Crafter's Companion challenge this month--which is Anything Goes! I love those kinds of challenges! I used the darling little Humphrey's elephant stamp. I am guest designer over there this month, too! So, I will be making a project with a tutorial toward the end of the month!  Don't ask me what I'm going to make because I haven't decided yet! lol  I'm also entering the card in Simon Says Stamp challenge Red Letter Day--there isn't a better red letter day than Valentine's in my opinion!

Thanks for visiting!

I'll be announcing the winner of the Shabby Apple necklace tomorrow!!! So, there is still time to enter!

Christmas at Grammie and Poppy's

I made this using the sketch at Frosted Designs: Sketch Along Tuesdays Sketch #31.  We spent Christmas at my mom and dad's house this year!  I wanted to capture some of the decorations in a layout.  The little snowman quilt was made by my sister, and the polar bear hanging on it was made by my mom.  There is nothing better than being home for Christmas!

Thanks for visiting!
