Happy Friday everyone. Thank you for joining me for another inspiration. We had a 5th birthday to attend and I chose to make a card rather than by one. I know making cards doesn’t always take ten minutes, but when cards have reached $4.99 to $8.99 I certainly try to fit making one in.
This was the first time I tried to make my own background out of stamps. I chose the tire tracks, and the yellow washi reminded me of yellow road lines. The tracks also match the distressed shutter lines in the inspiration photo at the Pink Elephant challenge.
A dump truck, some dirt and the birthday number and I was ready to go. This card actually took only about 20 minutes to make, and I was really pleased with how it came it. It was a big hit at the party too.
Until next time…Keep Scrappin’

Welcome to another reveal for Paper Crafter Anonymous. I am playing with the papers from my recent haul. This is the Pathfinding paper as well as a few chipboard stickers and accessories. The banner and words are from Simple Stories.
I loved this photo of my mom and son when he was about ten months old, but I didn’t want to overwhelm it with patterns since the background was busy. The orange leaf paper from the Pathfinding collection was just interesting enough.
The heart banner behind the photo was actually the strip of paper you cut off the bottom of a 12×12 sheet. If you’ve followed my blog lately I’ve been loving finding ways to use these in layouts to extend the paper pack.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what I’ve done with the paper. I’d love to see what you’ve done with the collection if you purchased it. Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
Welcome to another fun reveal for Child’s Play Challenge. We were asked this time to create layouts with the book Cat In The Hat as inspiration.
We don’t read a lot of Dr. Suess around here for some reason so it took me a while to find my inspiration. It was only after I realized the my nephew A’s favorite movie was The Lorax that it came together for me. After that this layout only took about an hour to complete.
I used the Hey Baby collection by Simple Stories for all the paper since they matched A’s shirt so well, but kept the look soft.
The layout of the photo and embellishments was inspired by one of Stacia Brandt’s Queen & Co guest layouts. She used circles, but otherwise the placement is very similar.
I love how this came out and I placed it in a memory tray for my SIL to hang in her office. I hope she love it too. Come over and join our challenge with how this theme inspires you. Until next…Keep Scrapping!
Welcome to another Friday reveal for Paper Craft Anonymous. This week I made a clean and simple Halloween card. I used the bird from the Believe in Yourself set, heat embossed him in black and fussy cut.
I used the front and back of one of the designer papers from the collection Scaredy Cat as my card bases. I like using both the front and back since they are designed to match each other.
Lastly I dry embossed some matching purple paper with a diagonal stripe. I felt the dry embossing added interest, but didn’t overwhelm the patterns.
I used this bird for Halloween since he looked a little creepy to me, but I could definitely see him also being used for more steampunk cards or even a mixed media canvas. What would you use him for?
Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
