Spring Is In the Air - Creative Knockouts #82

Hello and happy Thursday! I cannot believe that March is almost over! You know I did not make one St. Patrick's Day card or scrapbook page. I hope my Irish ancestors aren't rolling their eyes at me from above!

It is time for another challenge at Creative Knockouts and the theme is Spring Is In the Air. The sponsor is Art By Miran and I was given Punkette Peta to work with, thank you! It seems like most people I know pick their papers first and then color their image to match. I, however, like to live life on the edge! I like to color my image and then scramble around frantically looking through my stash for 10 minutes until I find something that inspires me. Which brought me to find this paper in an accordion file of papers I forgot about. This paper is old. The tear strip says 2006 on it! I thought these colors suited Punkette perfectly.

Scrapbook Page - 7th Grade

Hello and happy spring! Well, at least I think it is supposed to be spring but Mother Nature has other ideas. It was snowing this morning! Yep, we got at least 3-4 inches of the white, fluffy stuff. I hope where ever you are, the sun is shinning!

I have a scrapbook page to share. This is a really simple, one page layout. I used the Cricut to cut the circle and the title. No embellishments, just some simple layers of soild and  patterned paper.

Hello and happy Monday! It is another cold day, brrrrrr. I hope it is warmer where ever you are. I have a scrapbook page to share with you. I haven't been able to scrapbook as much as I want to lately. Most of the pages I have made, I haven't had time to post!

Stitching: Real or Faux - Crafting When We Can #88

Hello and happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day with their sweetie. Can you believe it is already half-way through the month? It is also time for another challenge at Crafting When We Can. The theme this go around is stitching. The sponsor is Oddball Art Co. and I was given Clara in Love to work with, thank you!

I decided to use real stitching on my card. I colored the image with Copic markers and used some Graphic 45 papers from my stash. I decided not to use traditional pinks and reds for this Valentine.

Floral Delight -Creative Knockouts #76

Hello and happy Thursday! It is time or another challenge at Creative Knockouts. The challenge is sponsored by Fred She Said and the theme is flowers.  I was given 3 Doodled Blossoms to work with, thank you! I colored the image with Copic markers and used the Cricut to cut out the flower. There is a cute phrase that goes with the flower and it says "Bunches of Love" which I cut and placed on the inside but forgot to take a picture. Whoops! I realized it after I put it into the mail.

So head on over to Creative Knockouts and show us your interpretation of Floral Delight!

Favorite Quote/Saying - Crafting When We Can #87

Hello and happy Sunday! It is snowing here today. It started last night and is expected to snow all day. We haven't had much snow this winter so this is making up for it!

I cannot believe it is already February 1st! Valentines is just around the corner. It is also time for another challenge at Crafting When We Can. This weeks challenge is sponsored by Artbymiran. I was given With  a Little Love to work with, thank you!

I colored the image with Copic markers and I used some Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens are her wings and the heart. I didn't really like how any patterned DP looked with this image so I used some Bazzil Swiss Dots paper instead.

In my usual fashion I put the sentiment inside my card and picked a simple Valentine sentiment of Be Mine.
