2 Birthday Cards for 2 Bo Bunny card sketch challenges

I’m still trying to learn how to make cards. There. I said it. lol So the way I see it, the only way for me to learn is by making more cards, right? From now on, you’ll be seeing a lot more cards from me. Some will be decent. Others will be…eh…and others, will be down right embarassing, but I have to at least try. LOL Lucky for me, Bo Bunny has Tuesday card challenges on their blog. The posts are filled with gorgeous inspiration that is totally lost on me still…but I’m trying! This post has my entry for both the January sketch which is due Feb 13 and also the Feb sketch which is due Feb 20th.

You can choose to complete 1 or all of them (one entry per sketch) and all you need to do to enter is make sure your project contains at least 70% Kaisercraft products and you upload your image to a gallery, photobucket, blog post etc. with the sketch title/name in the your title, then post the link to your project in the comments on the appropriate sketch post on their blog.

This month, I decided to go with the gorgeous sketch #2 using a photo of Madison holding Christian when he was 5 months old. I made him the subject of the layout since he’s looking at the camera, but she’s looking at her baby brother. 😀 This is my take on the fabulous Kaisercraft sketch:

Genuine Beauty – dt layout for LCTS sketch #117

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with JJ’s first sketch for the site and I had a lot of fun with it! I used Pink Paislee’s Vintage Vogue papers and let Madison pick out the bg paper she wanted. 😀 The pp, chipboard stickers, diecuts, spool tops are all from the Vintage Vogue collection. The only item I added was a few bits of twine from the Twinery. Here’s my example for the sketch:

This is the fantastic sketch JJ came up with for this week’s challenge (sketch #117):

Little Yellow Bicycle projects for Firefly Expressions

This week I got to work with the Delightful line by Little Yellow Bicycle for my dt work on fireflyexpressions.com. The first project I made was their project sheet that comes with a great assortment of diecut pieces, sentiments, a hidden tag and decorative paper strips. I added a bit of the ribbon from the Delightful line too. Everything shown is included in the kit except for the handmade flower and the ribbon which is sold separately.

The next item I made was a little bag to put it in for gift giving. All it took was a single 12×12 sheet of cardstock, matching trim, diecuts from the project sheet and an embossed cardstock sticker frame that I inked with Tim Holtz alcohol ink to match the trim and another handmade flower and it was ready to go! Love how well everything in this LYB line goes together. 😀 See how my handmade flower stays beautifully dimensional and stands w/o support? That’s all thanks to Helmar’s Liquid Scrap Dots. I don’t know how I ever crafted w/o it!
