Relax card for Bo Bunny May Card Challenge

There’s a fabulous sketch for May on the Bo Bunny blog. It’s perfect for any style of card making, so my first instinct was to create a mixed media card for it. After a little more thought though, I decided to create one using mostly paper so that I’d be using more BB product. 😀 For my card, I went with their Barefoot and Bliss collection from a couple of years ago. I love the bright cheery colors in this line. Everything used on my card is from this one collection! Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fun, versatile sketch for the challenge:

Simply Beautiful – Layout and Card for Paper Secrets Challenges

Paper Secrets has 2 progressive challenges that I’m participating in one is a layout challenge (we’re on week 4) and the other is a card challenge (we’re on week 3). These are my takes on the 2 sketches. 😀 For the layout, I had to select 4 products and a technique from a given list to use on my project. I chose lace/trim, staples, shape punches, 3+ flowers, and distressing (ink splatters).

Merry & Bright – Creative Scrappers Sketch #187

For my take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch #187, I went with the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas and some photos of Christian from last year when he was dressed as Mickey Santa. 😀 Everything used on my page is included in the collection kit and the adhesives I used were Helmar’s Quick Fix Adhesive Runner and Premium Craft Glue. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s what I came up with:

Materials: Sassafras Mix and Mend Handmade Hobnob paper
Sassafras Mix and Mend journaling Tags
Sassafras Mix and Mend Sweet Treats (diecut stickers)
Sassafras Kelly Green Glitter Alpha stickers

Sassafras Yellow Paper Alpha stickers
