Mojo Monday #332 on Wednesday

Howdy All!
It's been a while, I know! I am so glad to be getting settled back into a routine after the holidays and with my new job. I want to get back to participating in some of the awesome card challenges that are out there in Blog Land, so today I have a card that I created for this week's Mojo Monday. Here is the Sketch:


And here is my card:

 I made this for my 2 month old granddaughter, Leila Marijayne, who was born on December 13th. I am sure she won't really care about it, but my daughter-in-law will appreciate the effort!



 All products used are Stampin' Up!, though some are retired.
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
I hope to be back on a regular basis again!
See you soon!

Hugs,
Sandy

2013 Scrapbook Club - August & September Pages

Howdy All!
I am getting caught up on posting photos of my 2013 Scrapbook Club pages. Today I have August and September. I love how these pages came out and the Designer Series Papers in the new catalog are beautiful!

For my August layout I used the I Am Me dsp which was the inspiration for my pages. I love all the cameras on the one sheet so I decided to create one using punches! Pretty darn cute, huh?

 The 'faux' washi tape is just a strip of dsp torn in pieces to look like tape. I also added some polaroid frames using the Square Framelits.

 For my September pages I used some of the Epic Day This and That dsp.
 I also used some of my new favorite stamp sets - Gorgeous Grunge and Off The Grid.
My inspiration for this layout came from here.
Well, that's all for now!
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
See you again soon.

Hugs,
Sandy

2013 Scrapbook Club - June & July Pages

Howdy All!
Not a ton of chatter today. I've got pics of my June and July 2013 Scrapbook Club pages. Just a reminder that all products used for my pages are from Stampin' Up!

 Inspiration for this layout came from here.


 Inspiration for my July layout came from here.

 The larger Night of Navy star cutout is actually a punch on MDS. I transferred the file into my Silhouette Cameo, resized it and then had the machine cut them out! Very cool! I will be playing around some more with this for sure!
Well, That's all for now.
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
See you again, soon.

Hugs,

May 2013 Scrapbook Club Pages

Howdy All!
Today I have my May 2013 Scrapbook Club pages along with my Bonus Card.
These pages were created using the Secret Garden stamp set and matching framelits.
 I pulled the colors from the Floral District DSP that now is retired.
 I love using stamp sets that have the matching Framelits, it really makes things so much easier!
 All products used are Stampin' Up! and were current in May.

Well, That's it for now. Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by.
See you again soon!

My Swaps For Convention Take Two (2 months later!)

Howdy All!
So, it's been 2 months, ha! That's kind of funny! But, I am back with some more photos of my swaps for this years Stampin' Up! Convention back in July.

 These little cuties were the first of my two 3-D swaps. Aren't they adorable? They have yummy mint patties tucked between the layers. I didn't get a good photo of the side view.
 These went together pretty fast. I punched all the whisper white 1-3/8" circles out first and then did all my stamping on them using the Snow Day stamp set from the Holiday catalog. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set. These were placed in pretzel bags that I got from Michaels. They were finished off with some current matching ribbons!
 My second 3-D swaps were these darling Chiclets holders. I saw something similar on Pinterest but I wanted to be able to maximize my card stock, so I reconfigured the dimensions. You need a piece of cardstock measuring 2-1/8" x 11'' scored at 3-3/4", 4-1/8", 7-7/8" and 8-1/4". I used the Large Oval punch to create my hole to slip the Chiclets into. I used the Afternoon Picnic DSP, which I love, and a bunch of punches/thinlits to decorate the fronts. Topped them off with some gorgeous Crushed Curry Chevron ribbon!
They were both huge hits at Convention!
As always, I have tons of projects that I have been working on and someday I will get caught up with posting photos!
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
See you again soon!

Hugs,
Sandy

My Swaps For Convention Take One

Howdy All!
I thought that I would show you some of my swaps that I made for Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary Convention that I attended last week.
 This first swap card that I created uses the lovely Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape and Tape It stamp set. It is super easy to create and would be a great Make and Take or Workshop card as nothing has to be perfectly straight!
 Here is my supply list:


Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge, Tape It, Morning Meadow(hostess)
Paper:  Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink:  Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo, Night of Navy
Accessories:  Gingham Garden Washi Tape, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Island Indigo Baker’s Twine

 My second swap is the same as my first one only I used the Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape. It works great as a masculine card, don't you think?
 Here is my supply list:


Stamps:  Tape It, Off the Grid, Morning Meadow(hostess)
Paper:  Gumball Green, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party
Accessories:  Epic Day This and That Washi Tape, Mini Brads, Calypso Coral Baker’s Twine
 

I also decided to use this card I created a couple weeks ago as one of my swap choices because it was fairly easy to recreate and I just can't get enough of that adorable baby pachyderm from the Zoo Babies stamp set!! Here is my supply list again for this card:


Stamps:  Zoo Babies, Positively Chevron, Banner Greetings(hostess)
Paper:  Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Eastern Elegance DSP
