Just Married and Make a Wish!

I just made this lovely card for my friend's wedding this summer, really love how it came out.  The stitching was hard to match up since I did it freehand.  My favorite part is the bling!  Gotta love bling!  The car sticker is from Stickabilities and I double backed it with white and then black cardstock.

I also made a birthday card for my darling 2 year old (his bday isn't for a few months, but I thought it was better to be prepared than forget!).

I used this new Let's Scrap sketch:

Sweet a new bed!

I used a Let's Scrap sketch for this cute page about JJ's new toddler bed.

It's pretty simple, I pulled the Disney theme from his bed covers and used a color combination that coordinated well with the stickers!  

I'm entering this in the ditzy-craftymess challenge.

I used this lovely sketch from Frosted Designs as an inspiration:

Summer Lovin'

I absolutely LOVE how this layout came out!  I had so much fun making this paper doll and all of her accessories.  The sun is so much fun!  It's just a punched circle with several layers of triangles behind it from punched stars.

I used this Let's Scrap Sketch:

Missing the Jasmine...

Here is a layout I made for a Let's Scrap Challenge:

This layout is an admiration of the lovely Jasmine that used to grow over our fence from the neighbors yard.  My daughter loved these flowers and I'm so glad that I got a few pictures before our new neighbors cut it all down.  This is the Let's Scrap sketch I used:

Baseball Star!

Here's the sketch I used for the right side of my layout, from Let's Scrap:

Here was my take on the sketch as well as including the mini poster my son's team gave them:

More Recycling, Upcycling...and Motorcycling!

I used a Let's Scrap Sketch in my latest venture to create a layout with 5 recycled elements. Here's the result:

I used the remaining pieces from this cover of the paper pack packaging to create the banners.
 I used the twine from a gift tag to hold together the banner.
 I used the remaining gold outlines from the address labels to make the center lines in the street.

I cut up a q-tip into small pieces to use as the posts for the highway signs.

I cut up the back of a paper pack packaging to create my own chipboard title.
 I'm submitting it for Frosted Designs "Banners Challenge."

Recycle and Upcycling!! Two beautiful cards made from reusable material!

I made this card mostly from the packaging found on a pack of paper by My Mind's Eye.  I cut out the house and borders from the cover of the pack.

Here's what the pack looks like now:

I went ahead and used some of what was left to make this card for my Mom for Mother's Day:
