Thank you card for Sketch N Scrap card sketch #100

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a card inspired by Sketch N Scrap card sketch #100.  This is the sketch designed by Lisa:

june20th card sketch #100

I was just so inspired by the flowers so I had to make another floral themed card with my layering stamps. I created a clean and simple thank you card. I seemed to need ‘thank you cards’ more than anything so it’s good to keep a few in my stash.

I stamped the images and then cut them out with my scissors and adhered them onto the card. I did stamped the sentiment directly onto the peach textured cardstock.

Hop over to Sketch N Scrap for more inspiration from the design team members. We hope you will join us with our sketch challenges! We would love to see your creations. This post will be my last post as part of the design team for Sketch N Scrap. It had been a wonderful journey being part of Sketch N Scrap. Thank you so much!

‘Love’ Scrapbook layout

Hello! I haven’t post much this month as it’s getting busier around here in the summer. Today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you with Sketch N Scrap layout sketch. It’s a lovely sketch designed by Heather.

SNS june 15th Sketch layout

For my layout,  I flipped the sketch horizontally because my photo’s focal point was on the right side.

I started with splattering some watercolor droplets that matched my papers on my white cardstock. I used supplies from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit. I love fussy cutting the flowers from the patterned paper as embellishments. I added the rose gold alphabet thickers as my title to my layout. Honestly, I really need to be more creative with my title lol

XOXO (all occasion) card for Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #99

I think it can be an all occasion card.  It is really quick and easy because I just took everything from my scrap stash. I probably spend the most time trying to tie that ribbon to the way I like it lol

Hello everyone! Today I have a simple card to share with you. It’s inspired by a card sketch up on Sketch N Scrap for our 5th birthday bash crop  is that is still going on over at Facebook.

Here is my card:

Thank you card

I thought it would be fun to hand stitch the edge of the banner so I just poke holes with a paper piercer and use a peach embroidery floss  that matched my patterned paper. Then I diecut the sentiment using a similar peach textured cardstock as well. It was really quick and easy to make actually.

Love – wedding card

Hello! Yesterday I created a “Love” floral themed scrapbook layout. I used my floral stamps and of course I stamped extra to make cards. So today I want to share a card using a technique I saw on a  Youtube  video a while back by Yana Smakula. She shared this “perfect cardmaking formula” for CAS cards. I have been wanting to try it and finally did it. Sometimes I feel that I have so many ideas I want to try that I see on social media but just so little time!

The card I created is for a wedding, but I think it can be used for whatever occasion and for  the loved ones.

I diecut the crisscross background from Paper Issues with my Cameo. (They have so many awesome cutfiles for free) I wanted to have a textured background for extra interest but yet subtle, so I cut it in white.

Then I diecut and emboss the frame with a Spellbinders die with a piece of gold cardstock.  The flower is with Altenew Beautiful Day stamp and the smaller ones are from Garden Treasure stamp set. I colored in the smaller flowers with my Prismacolors.

I will definitely make more of these CAS cards. I love this “perfect cardmaking formula for CAS”! Next time I probably will try diecutting some frames with the Cameo or even trying it with some similar stamps and heat embossed it with gold. And maybe I should also make my cards by gauging the size of frames with the size of flowers. In this card, the flower seems a little too big for my little frame lol but it still turned out well I think.

“Love”- travel Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! I want to share a layout that involves again lots of stamping and detailed cutting of those stamped images.

Few years ago my husband and I traveled to Bali and had a photo shoot. The photographer used a different lens that captured this photo – it made us look like we were standing on top on the world. It was so pretty and pretty cool!

"Love" travel Scrapbook layout

I used a free cutfile from Paper Issues and cut out the love script heart with my Cameo. I used some papers and embellishments from Altenew Reflection Scrapbooking Kit. I would say I had a blast stamping all those flowers and leaves and then cut them out with my scissors. I probably could have used my PicScan to cut them out but I was worried I might ruined them if I made a mistake with the cutlines.  The flowers are from Altenew Beautiful Day and Garden Treasure stamp sets.

My layout was inspired by Altenew Sketch Challenge :

Sketch N Scrap: Scenic Trail Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! It’s another sketch layout day with Sketch N Scrap. Today I am sharing another outdoor scrapbook layout inspired by the sketch Heather designed on the blog today!

May 15th SNS

I loved the interest of the sketch that it is offset to an angle so in my layout, the placement can be a little wonky and offset. I do loved how the layout turned out.

Scenic Trail Scrapbook Layout

I decided to use a cutfile for my background. It is called ‘Going in circles’ (it’s a free cutfile from Paper Issues) which I thought was fitting for our outdoor trip although we did not go in circles that much – maybe just a little! I diecut it with a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper Hello Love. I wanted to adhere it to a white cardstock but thought it was too plain, so I added some watercolors with some Distress Inks. After I adhered the die cut, I adhered my photo, and decided to embellish it with fussy cut flowers from a floral patterned paper from Dear Lizzy Documentary.  I may have gone overboard with the florals (lol) Then I finished my layout with my title that I cut with my Cameo.

Hop over to Sketch N Scrap and check out more inspiration from the design team members. I hope you will join us this month with our sketches and I do hope you are joining our Facebook event for Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash crop! We would love to see your creations!

“Warsaw Caves” Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Today I have a two-page scrapbook layout to share with you. This layout was inspired by a sketch on Scrapbook & Cards Today during the (inter) National Scrapbook Day.

I want to share another outdoor layout today and I am glad I can put it in a double page layout.

It was definitely a fun trip to the caves and walking along the hiking trail. I have to say we were pretty adventurous in this trip.

I used papers from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection, and used journaling cards from Simple Stories. I diecut the leaves in white as subtle embellishments because I did not want the layout to get too busy. I also added other bits and pieces of emphera to complete the layout.  I was most excited to use my new gel pens for journaling. I had forgotten my love for metallic and glitter gel pens.

Fringed card – thank you card

Hello! It’s the second sketch for Sketch N Scrap birthday bash crop today on the blog. It’s a cute sketch designed by Lisa and it’s versatile for any occasion.

May9th Birthday challenge 2

I created a fringed card. It is so fun because it is a little bit 3D. I have seen these cards and always wanted to try it. When I saw the sketch, I was inspired to create the little fringes!

Fringed card thank you card

I used my Cameo to create the 5 strips of fringes. I probably could have use scissors and it would have been faster but I was diecutting something else anyway, might as well let the machine do the work. I adhered the fringes onto a card panel that I diecut with a stitched rectangle die. I adhered a strip of gold on the side that I punched with a border punch for a little bit more interest. I decided to cut off the the edge of the border to let the border strip pop out more. I made the fringe all the way to the top of the card and stamped my thank you sentiment onto my card.

The dimensional of the fringed card is so fun!

Traditional Scrapbook Layout on (inter)National Scrapbook Day

Hello and Happy (i) National Scrapbook Day! Every year in May, National Scrapbook Day falls on the first Saturday. So I hope you are having a fabulous day scrapping away! I want to share a layout with you inspired by a sketch layout designed by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap.

NSD may 6th

I created a traditional scrapbook layout. I personally called it traditional because it’s a simple layout where I just cut and paste things down without doing any techniques. Fearless Scrapbook LayoutThe photos are from last summer where we took a hike along a trail. It was a little dark in some area or a little too bright in some area of the woods so that’s why the photos are not too great. Perhaps I should have edited the photos before printing them out but it’s okay – I don’t need perfection lol

I printed the photos 3×4 size and followed the sketch as I create this layout. I chose papers and embellishments that are warmer colors since it seems like a good theme for the outdoors in the summer. Then I added a few stickers with the outdoorsy theme from Shimelle Go Now Go collection. Then it’s done.

Some close up of the cute embellishments –
