Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

challenge

Here’s a card that can be used for a couple different occasions. With the church, it could be for a wedding, Christening, engagement, First Communion or Confirmation. I’m sure there are more that I haven’t listed here, but you get the gist.

This card uses a lot of scraps that I had around from the SEI Collection, Jolie Chocolat which was wildly popular for it’s pink and brown tones. The added glitter and foil accents in the patterns made the paper that much more appealing.

Last year was a great year for lots of ice in Western Massachusetts according to my Aunt. She loved sending pictures from outside her window and around her house. This was one such incident that caused a major crippling for moving around the town and for going to work. I think she even lost power for a short time with the ice build-up on the power lines.

If there was a question on why I moved to Florida, take a gander at the pictures and put it together. 🙂

It’s a week away from Mother’s Day here in the U.S. so for all of you Moms out there, hopefully you’ll be enjoying a day of relaxation and love from your family.

Almost 8 years have gone by since my Mom’s passing, so I’ve made this card for her. She loved bright colors and the sunshine. This digital stamp is just so pretty for the card! Hope you like it.

MAY11VSNMINI4 challenge at Splitcoaststampers

Hello to my blog readers. I’ve been a little busy this week – ok, yes, but I haven’t felt like blogging! Maybe because my creativity has been a bit low this week or just maybe I needed a short break.

I’m back creating this weekend and have some projects to share with you.

You may remember me mentioning it before, but there’s a weekly challenge over at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. The challenges are due Monday afternoons, so you have the weekend to work on your project in case your week is full of regular stuff to do. 🙂

This week’s challenge is to use Turquoise and Brown PLUS an image from Michelle Perkett. I also took advantage of a challenge offered at last night’s Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers. Fun stuff and I hope you find the time to enter both challenges before Monday!

Using digital stamps is quite easy to use for scrapbook pages as well as cards. For the layout below, I printed the images on white paper and colored them with Copic markers. I then trimmed them out so that they were more of an embellishment for the page rather than a main focus. If you’ve ever heard of a “hybrid” project, this can be considered one as it combines both traditional scrapbooking with digital elements.

Today’s project also works for The Stamping Boutique’s Digi Day challenge on Scrapbook News & Review! The super cute Bride Audrey digital stamp coupled with AJ Wedding meets the “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” challenge. The “old” item is the paper that I’ve had for years, the “new” item is the sheer butterfly embellishment, the “borrowed” item was the Sizzix alpha to cut the letters with, and the “blue” items are the sheer flowers.

Join in on the fun at SNR with TSB!

There are so many great Easter stamps out there now in rubber, clear and digital. I’ve combined 2 of them with this card – clear and digital. The bunny is colored with Copic markers and the greeting is stamped with Memento dye ink and colored with a Sakura Glaze pen. Fun, cheery and bright for such a Spring-y holiday!

Are you wondering why I’ve been showing more digital stamps from The Stamping Boutique? I was a Guest Designer there for March and they asked me to stay on in the regular Team! I really appreciate the Team’s creativity, so it’s a great fit!
