Power Poppy Hues to Use

Hello, Everyone!  Power Poppy has a wonderful weekly challenge called Hues to Use where wonderful colors are given to inspire.  There are so many beautiful color combinations they share.  Please be sure to check it out and join in!  

I have decided to stretch a little and go with a person, rather than flowers for a change.  I chose Miss Typewriter - since I, myself, used to be Miss Typewriter!  Other than that, I decided to go quick and simple.
I started out with a black base, adding some "Be Bold, Be Bright" paper designs I purchased at Hobby Lobby before I retired three years ago!  I found the image from Mari Digis and thought it would be something different for me to try.

Pick up the Pink!

Hi, Everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  Haven't abandoned anything in a while, so finally took some time to make something to let go.  Not sure where yet, but planning to abandon this gift pack of six cards.

Don't ya just love these colors?  I used papers from the Sweetheart Collection from We Are 3.  The sentiments are from the Little Things Sentiments.  I embossed some of the cards with Buttons folder from Darice.  On some I attached a flower or butterfly to finish the cards up.  I love pink and grey together!

Have you abandoned your papercrafts yet?  Please be sure to stop over to the Art Abandonment Facebook Page and let's see if someone enjoyed finding my card pack.

Family Goodness

Hello, Everyone!  Wow, can you believe this weather???  It's 25 years ago today that I visited the Southwest and fell in love with the weather. It's so beautiful this time of year - great time for the Midwesterners to get out of that cold and come visit.

I'm finishing up scrapbooks for my hubby's siblings.  Here's the latest.

Hello, Everyone!  My layout that I would like to share with you today is using Vintage Carnival from We Are 3.  I just love the colors in this collection.  The photo will be of my grandson riding a plane ride.

Enjoy the Simple Things

Over at Kerst Christmas, the challenge is Anything Goes.  I decided to go quick and easy - again.  After all, I've got loads of scraps to use, have I not?  I do like my poinsettias and find a tone-on-tone card to be so simply elegant!
My card uses one of my favorite papers - Christmas Tree, and I've also thrown in a bit of Storybook Christmas for a touch of contrast.  Pointy Poinsettia is the flower - I love it, is so elegant printed with a gold outline.

Day Filled with Music

Hello, Everyone!  Hope you're all have a good week!!  I would like to share this simple layout that I made for my grandson's scrapbook - a photo sharing his talents as a new drummer.
The adorable papers are from We Are 3's Little Star collection enlarged for larger stars.  This collections has a fun color combination - I just love it!  The QR code when scanned takes you to a video of my grandson playing drums for the first time.  Pretty quick layout - which I love!

Valentine Treat Bag

Hello, Everyone!  I hope you're ready for Valentine's Day.  It's hard to believe we are celebrating another holiday already.  Where does the time go?  This passage of time brings us to the monsoon season here - guess our beautiful winter weather will be leaving us for a while - not my favorite time of year.  This evening I wanted to share a fairly quick treat bag.  It has many possibilities - I made a rather generic bag, but plan to use it for some Valentine treats.

This little treat bag comes from SVG Cuts - Spring Pals Treat Sack.  I topped it off with Josephine Clematis from Doodle Pantry.  The paper comes form Digital Scrapbooking Experts - Blessings and Baptism.  I did recolor the houndstooth pattern inspired by this week's Hues to Use at Power Poppy.  These colors are soooooo elegant!!!!!

Woodland Christmas with an Owl

Woodland Christmas digital papers make a great background to this Owl Doodle.

Grandson - Hanging Out at the Mall

Hello, Everyone!  I hope you're enjoying your Monday.  I would like to share a layout I did for a picture of my grandson riding a truck at the mall.  Of course, as you know, I can't share photos of the grands.
I cut - I mean tore - the left two panels from We Are 3's Vintage Carnival.  Very quick and simple layout - that's what I've been shooting for lately as I am so behind in my scrapbooking.

Featured Stamper Challenge

Hello, Everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying the weather wherever you are!  We are having great weather -as usual.  Today I found a little time to squeeze in a Christmas card for the fun challenge at Splitcoast Stampers - Featured Stamper #575.  Check out  their Featured Stamper challenge - one member picked weekly and you can choose one of their cards to case.  No prizes - but I love seeing everyone's interpretation.  Here is my card.
I cut these lovely poinsettias from Pointy Poinsettias by Fred She Said.  The background is from the Outer Space collection by We Are 3.

Wedding Album

My project today is another layout for my wedding album.
I used DSE Neapolitan digital paper for the background.  I cut flowers from the Josephine Clematis collection from Doodle Pantry.

Happy, Happy Christmas!

Hello, Everyone!  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!  Can you believe it....2nd post today?  I wanted to share samples using more of the Celebrate collection - remember the sale price is 80 cents - good only through the 15th!  So I had this idea in my head of coloring snowflakes using the metallic pattern to give kind of an embossed effect.  After paper piecing those snowflakes digitally, they were more beautiful than even in my head.  I then layered those metallic snowflakes over ... wait for it! Paper from the OUTER SPACE collection.  Yes, my background is full of craters.  I added Stickles to most of the craters - and voila!  A shimmery fun Christmas card!  I finished it off with some glittered matting and one last metallic snowflake.
Then I got to wondering...what would the same snowflakes look like if I used a Confetti pattern.  So I paper pieced digitally the snowflakes with the green confetti.  OMG - I'm telling you the photo does not do these snowflakes justice!  But they have an almost holographic look!  I used the Galaxy pattern from the same - wait for it!  OUTERSPACE collection.  The results look like small snowflakes among the holographic snowflakes.


Happy Birthday!

Hello, Everyone!  Hope you're having a fantastic week!  Beautiful weather here in Sunny Arizona!  Here is a card I made using We Are 3 papers.  The center panel is from a new paper collection called Celebrate - all kinds of "confetti" printed papers - FUN!  And the price is only 80 cents until the 15th!  In fact - all We Are 3 digitals are 20% off until the 15th! The design is inspired by Featured Stamper #574 at Splitcoast Stampers.
I started with a white base.  The pink mats are from We Are 3's Back to Basics Collection.  The top panel is from the Bird's View Collection.  The Pink dotted border is from the Exotic Seaside Collection, and the center panel is from the new Celebrate Collection.  I added a fun digital image - Beachball Bear from Kadoodle Bug, along with a sentiment from We Are 3's Birthday Wishes Sentiment Collection.
