AHSC # 242 - Beautiful

As soon as I saw this sticker I knew I wanted to make a card with it! So for my image part of the sketch I decided to use the sticker. I've just finished and mailed my last Christmas card today and was ready to make something not holiday. I wanted my card to sparkle to I used strips of glitter paper for the horizontal pieces behind the image.

December Special - Through the Year Scrapbook Calendar

This is a very special project. Each month is a new scrapbook page created by you from a kit full of paper, embellishments and creative tips. Each month instead of just flipping to the next calendar page, you trim off the past month page and add it to an album. At the end of the year you have an album full of beautiful memories.

To purchase your kit just click here, thank you.

AHSC # 240 Joy

This sketch has so many possibilities for using the diagonal center. I kept mine simple and stretched a thin piece of ribbon across the card. Then I used some matching Cricut cuts for my corner pieces. Here is the sketch for this week, I hope you'll decide to join the AHSC.

AHSC # 238 - Joy

This week I wanted to make a holiday card with the sketch and ideas were just not coming to me until I saw this embossing folder. Then I knew exactly what I was going to do! I used the new Espresso paper for my pinecones but it just wasn't giving me the dark color I wanted so I took the ShinHan Bronze (BR99) marker and traced over the pinecone cutouts.

I hope you'll decide to join AHSC this week, here's the sketch to get you started...

AHSC #236 - Yappy Birthday!

This card was so much fun to make! I love the Punny Pals stamp set! And the sketch make this card quick to put together because all I did was cover my card base with the black check paper then add the strips of shimmer trim. I cut a pentagon for a dog house to put behind the puppy and added the sentiment.
I hope you'll join AHSC this week and submit something you create, it doesn't  have to be a card, anything the sketch inspires is welcome.

Here is this week's sketch...

AHSC #234

Sketch is a little challenging but a lot of fun! Sitting on my craft table I had some leftover vellum leaves that I decided to use for my image. Behind the leaf with the gold overlay are 2 smaller vellum leaves I decided to attach with my Xyron. I'm not sure if I would use this technique again or not. I love the new CTMH bow die cut! This has been attached with mini glue dots.
I hope you'll decide to join AHSC this week.
