leftovers...

When I was doing a little bit of cleaning up I noticed these two pieces of paper on my table and thought I can use those! Here's what I've done....
I now have the base of a scrapbook layout! By trimming the piece the leaves were cut from and backing it with the glitter paper, then scallop punching the borders I was able to create this border accent. Now all I need to do is print a family picture taken yesterday and add my journaling block and my layout is complete.
TIP:  When you've enjoyed any event, large or small, that you know you are going to scrapbook, type out your story while you are waiting to print your pictures. The story of your day and the people you spent it with is really the most important part of your beautiful artwork.

AHSC # 135 - Congratulations Card

This past Saturday I attended the Southern California High School Band Competition and watched my nephew's school take 1st place! It was very exciting to watch their flawless performance on the field and I'm so glad I made the 2 hour drive to be with my family. This card is what I'm sending my nephew to remind him just how awesome I think he is! Congrats to Tommy and the Buena Ventura High School Band!

My inspiration for this card is from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge # 135...

Thanksgiving...

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! I love the fall colors!

This framed piece was easy to create. Everything was cut on the Cricut and attached to the wire part of the frame with foam tape. That gives the leaves the appearance of floating & will make it easy to remove them when I get ready to create my next project in this frame.
TIP: If you are creating a cluster of flowers cut out a circle of cardstock to use as your base and glue the flowers to the base with Liquid Glass
This frame is available on my website.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge # 131

I want to start by saying I love this weeks sketch - but when I started to create my card I realized I needed to use less pieces! I hope you like what I've made, it truly was inspired by this week's Atlantic Hearts sketch...
Now go take a look at what everyone else has created this week!
