I am finally all done with the card set and now just have to get the posts done and the videos up. I used "All About Animals" from K. Andrew Designs and the "Animal Kingdom" Cricut cartridge to make this cute little missing you card. I hope you enjoy today's project and have a great day.
I am linking this card to the following challenge:
Today I have something to share with you that I've never tried before. I took a scrapbook sketch and turned into a standard A2 card sketch. I love the way it turned out and hope you will too.
I started by choosing a sketch that was originally posted on Srapbook Challenges. If you click on the sketch, you will be taken to the original sketch. They have lots of fun sketches for all you scrapbookers.
I then created my own sketch to make it fit on a standard 4.25" X 5.5" card. Each of the banner ribbons were cut at 3/8" wide.
Now it was time to create the card. I needed the following supplies to pull it off:
DCWV - The Tradewinds Matstack
Core'dinations "Timeless" Textured Cardstock (grey)
Georgia Pacific white cardstock
Stampendous "Happy Messages" stamps
Close To My Heart - Outdoor Denim ink
Fiskars "Upper Crest" border punch
EK Success 1 3/8" circle punch
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
After the video, I decided to add…
So much has happened in the last month and a half. Besides getting the craft space organized and most of our pictures hung around the house, we have made a couple of trips. I have also spent quite a bit of time sick. I'm so thankful to finally be feeling better. However, the time down was not without some good things. In fact, I had time to watch some YouTube videos, organize my planner supplies and really start using my planners again.
There is a video posted below, but there is one planner that didn't make it into the video. My work planner was sitting on my desk when I made the video so we will start with it before moving on to my personal planners. I use a Foxy Fix #5 at work and I absolutely love it. I keep a month on 2 pages calendar from the 1407 planners and then I print inserts from Etsy for the daily pages. This layout is perfect for work since it doesn't include Saturdays or Sundays. It is undated and I use it only on the days that I need it.
There are a few things that are a "must" at Christmas time and one of those things for me is the candy cane. When my children were little,we would read The Legend of the Candy Cane at Christmas time. It was one of 3 books that I loved to read every Christmas. The book talks about the Candy Cane being a reminder of Jesus and of His death for you and me.
Friend, do you know Jesus? I hope you do. If you don't, reach out to me and I will be happy to share the Good News of Jesus and how He was born as a baby so that He could die for your sins and mine. Wow! How awesome is that?
On this tag, I used a stencil and distress ink to form the candy cane background and a tiny Close to my Heart stamp for the tree. I used Prisma colored pencils and gamsol to color in the tree.
