Home is where the Heart is. OUAS April sketch challenge.


I made this layout for the Once Upon A Sketch April 15th sketch.


It is titles Home is Where the Heart is. The theme was to make a layout of home. Here is my hidden journaling. I put it in a tiny glassine bag with a tiny paper clip attached to it. You can find the bags here.


I used Prima Botanical paper. One of my Favorites. I kept the tones more shabby in this layout. I used crackle paint on a lot of the paper and embellishments to tone them down a bit. I used a lot of Wild Orchid Craft flowers and some lace i found at the craft store.






This layout was a lot of fun. If you have any questions please ask me!

Mother Day cards.

I had a chance to make a couple Mother's day cards.

The first card I made is for my mom. I used the Glitz Design French Kiss 6x6 paper pad. I also used on of the cards from the collection. I cut out the bird cage and layered some lace I found at the thrift store. I layered on top of that a gorgeous petaloo flower. I also used some burlap for some added texture and interest.

The next card I made is for my MIL. I used one of my favorite Websters Pages collections. I used the Ladies and Gents paper. I used a canvas tag form the collection. I also used some gorgeous lace I found at the craft store. and layered some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I cut out one of the images from the paper as well.

I am hoping I can get a few more done for my Grandma and sisters.

Thank you card.

I have another project. This one is for MB's Treasurista. I made a card this month. I used the recent sketch from this months sketch challenge. I used Pink Paislee London Market paper which i absolutely love. I used 3 different gorgeous trims from the store. I also used my lacey circle Spellbinder die and layered a chipboard piece from Prima on top of that. I used a old Anna Griffin stamp to stamp the Thank You. The gorgeous flower is from Petaloo.

Prima April BAP challenge.

It has been a while since I have posted a project. But I have a few other projects coming shortly! I have been busy moving from sunny San Diego to hot dry Nevada. We are moved in our house and trying to get back to our routine. enough of that lets get to the layout.
I made this layout for the Prima BAP challenge. I used my Swirlydoos kit to make this layout. I can't keep my hands off this paper. It is so gorgeous. Most everything I used was in my April kit. The sketch was so fun but of course I changed it up a teeny bit... and of course there is no journaling on the front. I am going to be adding some journaling on the back. I used some GORGEOUS trims from TPBP. You can find the trims and other goodies here.
I also have been dying to do a layout with this picture. I recently got a Canon 60D DSLR. I was attempting to take some Easter pictures.... well my kids hate taking pictures. LOL. This photo is a pure example. Most of the time Mateo is making a funny face and Abby is crying... so this one is actually one of the "good" ones haha!
I really enjoyed making this layout. This one I am going to be getting a shadow frame for and putting it on the wall.
