June's SEM Sketch Challenge!

Over at the SEM blog this month, we're doing another Sketch Challenge...this month I created projects for both the Layout and the Card sketch. The "Twist" was to include a handmade flower. 

Here's the Layout Sketch by Leah Schaeffer...

And here's my take on it:
I made my flower on this layout with a "gluber" glue dot and some jute, then layered on a punched piece that I cut myself, a flair button and a My Mind's eye enamel dot. Love the way it turned out! 

And here's the Card Sketch by Leah Schaffer...

 And here's the card I created:
I started out with a basic sticker (from K & Co.) for my flower here, but added some patterned paper so it would match better and some enamel dots and bling...what I ended up with was a one of a kind "hand-made" flower! FUN!

Join us this month and you'll be entered to win an awesome prize from Citrus Twist Kits.

SEM's June Main Challenge

This month over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, design team member Christy gave us the challenge to create a project about a Husband/Wife relationship, and the scrap twist was to not use any patterned paper (ugh--that one was really tough for me!!)

Here's the project I created...
This will sit on the desk in my craft room...I love it!
Since I couldn't use any patterned paper, I used labels, tags, washi tape and stamped on a strip of card stock (the herringbone pattern) instead. 

I also did a layout...but on this one I DID use patterned paper (this was the first project I created, till I realized I'd forgotten the twist of using no patterned paper...and well, there was no going back...but I still wanted to share it with you:)).

What's really cool is that Ellie (7 years old) took these photos of Pete & me...she's a much better photographer than I am!! And this page about us will go in her scrapbook:).
