I Adore You card for My Mind’s Eye blog challenge

Each month, My Mind’s Eye posts a card and a layout challenge on their blog with a shared theme to go with the sketches by Anam Stubbington. This month, the theme is “You.” After making 3 girly cards full of pink, I wanted to create a masculine one, so I decided to make Larry a Valentine using this challenge. Here is my take on this month’s card sketch:

Materials:

MME Stella & Rose Mabel 6×6 pp, MME S&R Mabel brads
MME S&R Mabel buttons
MME S&R Mabel diecut sticker
Twine from the Twinery
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots

This month’s fab sketch:

He Just Can’t Sit Still – Layout for Pagemaps and Practical Scrappers

Last weekend, Larry and the kids went to a local mall to get some photo strips taken of them. I needed just one for a different project that will posted here late next week. That left me with 2 more strips, but I didn’t have any specific projects that required them. Rather than saving the 2 extras for a future project, I decided to use one right away. One of the two current pagemaps sketches seemed perfect. All I needed to do was turn it 90 degrees to the left.

Practical Scrappers has also been so kind as to post some of my work to their blog recently. Most recently, they posted one of my Crate Paper cards and a Bo Bunny layout (their blue post), so I decided to participate in their current Challenge Me Tuesday and combine it with this sketch. The PS challenge is to use wood grain papers. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

My Mind’s Eye Stella & Rose Hattie papers
MME Stella & Rose Mabel papers
MME Hattie trims
DMC embroidery floss
Maya Road Sheers-A year to remember
Jillibean Soup journaling sprout
October Afternoon alpha stickers
Hero Arts trims
MME Stella & Rose Mabel layered chipboard sticker
Alcohol Ink
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar adhesive runner

Tools:

Martha Stewart lace doily edge/border punch
Cutter Bee Bugs (punches holes to make hand-stitching easier)
