Celebrate Card with Doodlebug

March 19th, 2012

So as I noted in previous posts I have been creating cards to fill my “box”.  I happened across a sketch challenge posted on Doodlebug’s blog. Here is the sketch:

And this is what I created using an older collection “Birthday Boy”.

Thank you Doodlebug for inspiring me!

Sketch Challenge with Crafty Steals

March 18th, 2012

I guess you could say with all this spring weather we are having quite early here in WI I’m motivated to create!  Crafty Steals posted the following sketch challenge.

Recently I have been organizing all my scrapping supplies and had pulled out some older kits to play with.  I created the following card following the sketch:

This year one of my goals is to fill a box with all occasion cards, so that when I need one instead of going to the store I head over to my crafty box and pull one out.   One I save some $$ and two I use up some of my older supplies!

Think Spring

March 11th, 2012

It’s starting to get nice in Wisconsin!  Finally….  I was inspired by the sunny day and sorted through all my papers.  I found some fun papers from “My Little Shoebox” that I just adore!  Fitting name the collection is called “Garden Party”!

I had picked up this frame from of all places the dollar store and created a collage.  I’m trying to decide if I want to keep at my desk at work or put it in Makenah’s room.  I have already gotten several compliments on it!  I also think something like this makes a great gift to grandparents.

Here are a few close up:

Hope this inspires you to get out some bright colored papers and get creative!  Happy Spring!
