Case This Sketch 207

This was such a fun sketch and when I saw it I knew that I would have to use the starburst out of the perpetual birthday stamp set. I wanted this to really pop off the page and I think I achieved that.

Here is the sketch:

And then here is my card:

Happy Thanks

To give it that brushed water colored look I took a sponge and sponged on the blue. Again this was super simple and would make a great card to send to someone to brighten their day.

Plan with Me Feb 5 2017

I have now 2 plan with me video’s up on Youtube and they are also below.
One planner that I am using is my inkWell Press planner (where if you follow my referral link you can get $10 off) and then I am using a Me and My Big Ideas planner to just memory keep. I also used some of our stamps and washi tape to create these layouts. It truly shows how great our products match with other products on the market. I loved how well they coordinated with stickers that I had.

Global Design Project 072: Valentines

Valentines stack

Can you believe that this lovely holiday is next week?? I sat down this weekend to create all these beautiful cards to send out to my favorite girlfriends to just let them know that I am thinking on them on Valentines day. This is also one of my favorite holidays.. not because I love getting things from my husband (but I also love that) but because it just seems so happy. It is a time to share love with everyone and I am totally digging the pink and red every where.

So this card was created by CASING the Global Design Project 072:

So here are my creations. I made 12 cards that are all unique but have the same throughout them:

I also had to learn to perfect my bow making skills. Even being in a sorority for a few years I was never really great at making bows but I think that these turned out pretty well.

Below I did a close up of both my Hello Love and Happy Valentines Day cards
