Bingo for Twisted Thursday at The Outlawz

Here is a card I made with some scraps for Twisted Thursday's Bingo at The Outlawz Challenges.  The patterned papers are from Sunny Days - the flowers are die cut with paper from Dandelion Wishes - all from We Are 3.  I chose the first vertical column - Yellow, Die Cut, and Flowers.

Great Fish and Paper

I really love the colors of We Are 3's Dandelion Wishes.  These great papers and a really cute fish from The Hungry JPEG made a great little card.

Let the Fun Begin

I made this layout with Vintage Carnival from We Are 3 for my grandson's scrapbook.  Can't share photos - but they are of Mommy and Son celebrating Valentine's Day with a day out bowling and McDonald's.

Happy Birthday One-Layer Card

Hope you're all having a good week!!!  I made this cute birthday card from the Once Upon a Time Collection.  It's a one-layer card  kind of a collage of three of the different patterns in the collection.  I used the new Window View and Window Layers for the focus point . . . just perfect combination with the Once Upon a Time papers, don't ya think?  I added a sentiment from the Special Birthday collection.
Hope you like it and that I've inspired you to try making a one-layer card using your photo-editing program.  It went together quickly, and I really like the end result!  Let me know what you think.

Lucky in Love

I love stamps and Hues to Use from Power Poppy.  This card uses Power Poppy's Climbing Clematis.


This is a layout I made for my wedding album.  Nothing like realizing 13 years later that your photographer missed a photo with one of the groomsmen.  The patterned paper is Burlap Beach from We Are 3.

Featured Stamper

Today's post is for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.  I love challenges - challenges to CASE are the best.  And when the Featured Stamper has a layout - and a CAS layout - even better.  
Our grandson's live 2000+ miles away.  We are fortunate to be able to video chat with our oldest grandson from time to time - but the attention span of a three-year-old to sit and talk with grandparents he really doesn't know - well there just plain isn't!  However, we can keep him interested once we start playing with the buttons to turn our faces into different characters.  I'm showing my age - I don't even know what this is called!  LOL!  Anyway, this layout will feature him as different characters during our last video chat.  For Baba's sake, I hope they change these faces often, 'cuz Baba's attention span is about that of a three-year-old during these calls!  :D

Hello, Everyone!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and getting lots of crafting done!  I have another card to share with you today.  I made this card using Framed Neutrals from We Are 3.  I used the background pattern to create a stone house. 
The house is a digital image from Pretty Grafik.  I recolored it to go with these papers I wanted to use.  If you haven't checked out We Are 3's March releases, you're missing out on some fabulous papers, images, and sentiments.

A Spring Brilliance Card

We are continuing on with a Spring theme for this weekend with projects using the beautiful Spring Brilliance.  Remember, Spring Brilliance is on sale for $1 through March 12!

Birthday Greetings

Hello, Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by - hope you're having a wonderful week.  Today I made a fairly quick card using new releases from We Are 3.  I knew when I saw the Window View printables, this would be fun.  This is what I came up with for my first card.
The background is from the new Sunny Days collection.  The cute bird is looking out a transparent window - so you can decide what the view is.  I have my bird looking out on some pine trees. I used trees from Ink and Dot.  The sentiment is from We Are 3 - Special Birthday sentiments.  Be sure to stop over at We Are 3's Facebook Page to see samples from the designers.


Just Dance

Since I'm behind in my scrapbooking, I haven't been participating in many challenges.  However, last week's sketch challenge at the Outlawz seemed perfect for a scrapbook layout.

Framed Neutrals on a Gift Bag

Hello!  Hope you all are having a great week!  I would like to share a project I made using the new Framed Neutrals from We Are 3.  I hope you are enjoying all the fun cards we are sharing using the March Release - so much inspiration!
I decorated this plain gift bag with flowers made from the Framed Neutrals collection.  I cut the flowers using ABC Flowers (Dreaming Tree).  I embellished with lace, paper roses for flower centers, sequins waste, beads, and a plastic pick from my stash.  Too cute, eh?

I'm also sharing a close up of the flower bouquet so you can see the beautiful detail in the paper.
