Splatter Technique

I was inspired by Mackie's card to participate in this week Freshly Made challenge and also by the technique that  Chrissie used in making her card for Take it, Make it Challenge Five.  Thank you Mackie and Chrissie for two beautiful cards.  I was able to used things I already had to create this card and that made me happy.  I used a stencil to create the background using VersaMark and clear embossing powder.  For the splattering I used my re-inkers adding some water to dilute the color and a brush.  The sentiment I tacked under the the leaves and it reminder me of the little envelope sticking out of a bouquet of flowers.  Enjoy!

Project Life Pocket

Two great challenges for my first Project Life page, Deconstructed Sketch and CAS-ual Fridays.  I added a tab where I am going to write the sweetest thing my daughter did for me on the way to the hospital for my surgery.  I took some extra pictures to share with you how I created the pocket.  I am not into sequins but I do have to admit that I like how they look on this project.  I'm happy with the way a used the two challenges.  Enjoy!

I taped only 3 sides leaving the top open to insert the tag
I cut the top red portion and adhered it to the top of the tag
Here is the tag that comes out with the top red portion.

Project Life Tittle

The sketch from Seize the Sketch is perfect for the tittle in my Project Life album.  I finally made my first page and are looking forward to adding pictures.  There are too many awesome challenges out there that I am going to be using for my pages.  Enjoy!

Project Life

I finally started my Project Life photo album and the inspiration came from a bible verse that I got via email at a perfect time.  I was having surgery and was kind of worried about it.  Most of all I was concerned about my daughter and how she was feeling.  When I read the bible verse I knew He will keep me safe.  Isaiah:4
The sketch from the Sweet Stop challenge is perfect for one my pockets. The colors from ColourQ are a bright combination and inspired me to create this pocket.  Oops! Internet was too slow and didn't get the picture on time to post it :(   Enjoy!

Repeat + Lift

A fun technique from Make it Monday and a super cute sketch from Retro Sketches.  I cut 3 of the birthday die and glued them together to add body to the word.  Enjoy!
