Happy Friday!

Since I got my hands on the Orchard Harvest DSP, I haven't really had eyes for anything else! Not sure what it is about this color combo, but I absolutely love it!

Not sure what it is with this picture, but it looks like my photos are sliding downhill to the right! Not sure how that happened, but I guess you'll get the gist of it, anyway! I just checked, and IRL it doesn't look like this! Huh... anyways...

So these pics were taken last fall of my two youngest boys on a walk around the pond. Think it's one of our favorite things to do, considering there's always something new to see! Again, an easy to assemble layout, but using all SU!

Supplies used:
DSP - Orchard Harvest
CS - early espresso, island indigo
Ribbon - early espresso 1/4" stitched grograin, raspberry ripple 3/8" stitched satin, lucky limeade 3/8" ruffled
Ink - more mustard, old olive, early espresso, cajun craze, raspberry ripple
Stamps - Wonderfall
Accessories - Autumn Accents Bigz die, Timeless Type Alpha Junior Sizzlets (retired)

Now, since this is the first time I've actually posted something 5 days in a row, I'm pretty pleased! Leave me a message and let me know which of the last 5 days posts is your favorite! Anybody else scrapbook with SU supplies? Leave me a link, so I can come take a peek!

Have a great day!

Warm Winter Wishes

So, since I started CASEing out of the new Holiday Catalog, I had to do another one! This card originated on page 18! I love these skates, and using a blender pen to add a little color, just makes them all the more real!

Supplies used:
CS - early espresso, very vanilla
Stamps - Winter Memories
Ink - early espresso, cherry cobbler(berries), soft suede(skates)
Ribbon - cherry cobbler 31/2" scalloped tulle, gumball green 1/4" sweater trim
Accessories - snow flurry bigx die, blender pen

Enjoy your day!

Thanks A Bunch!

I love to CASE (copy and share everything)! There are just so many amazing crafters out there that showcase some pretty cool/fun/Ihave to do that kinda work! And so, I do it, too. In my own way, sometimes, and in other cases, exactly as I see it!

This is one of those cards that instantly said, "CASE me!" You'll find it on page 30 of the SU Holiday Catalog. I changes up a few things, but the look is generally the same.

So, your challenge for today, is to go and do the same! Find something you love and copy it. Item by item, or even just one thing. whatever it is, find inspiration in someone else's work and enjoy the outcome...I did!

Supplies used:

CS - island indigo, old olive, very vanilla
DSP - orchard harvest
Ribbon - early espresso 1/4" stitched grograin
Ink - early espresso, old olive, island indigo (markers)
Stamps - Sanded (retired), Friendship Preserves
Accessories - antique brads, festive paper-piercing pack, piercing mat, paper piercer

Thanks for looking!

Technique Tuesday!

 This is a card I made using a new-to-me fold! Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but the front panel is flipped over on itself, with the ribbon tied through before adhering it together. I'm not actually sure what this fold is called, but it's an easy one to do! My club girls don't know it yet, but this will be one of the cards we'll be making! I love the masculine feel to it. And that tractor is really a favorite of mine! I've put another photo here to show how the full front looks. 

Products used:
Card Stock - certainly celery, island indigo,very vanilla, basic black
DSP - first edition specialty
Ribbon - island indigo3/8" ruffled
Ink - certainly celery, basic black
Markers - real red
Stamps - Harvest Blessings
Accessories - crop-a-dile, blender pen

If you would like to know the measurements for folding, please leave me a message!

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook layout share...

Happy Monday everyone!

Thought I'd post a layout I made using all Stampin' Up! supplies... It's of my youngest son, Luke, pictures taken last fall. The papers used here are from the Orchard Harvest DSP line. I used the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, the Wonderfall Stamp set and coordinating Autumn Accents Bigz Die, and a few Naturals designer Buttons. A really fast, easy page to put that!
