Divalicious crop

Hi all. The Divalicious crop has started over at Savvy'n'Sassy. There are some amazing challenges. And the prizes, oh my. Every challenge has a prize and the grand prize is valued at $275. Head over there and play around. There will be something to inspire you. Here are a few challenges I did for the crop.

This is a double diagonal card. You can find the instructions here. I used Dream street paper on this one and Cornish heritage farms stamps.

This one is a Diva's favorite things. I used some of the new Daisy bucket paper on this. Love this stuff.

Oh the places I'll go. I used Pink Paislee. I put the transparency over some of my elements and wrote my words on top of the transparency with American Crafts slick writers.

The next 2 are LO's I did for challenges some of the other ladies came up with.

This one was a challenge to come up with some heartfelt journaling about yourself. Pieces of a Diva. I used Pink Paislee on this one. I cut the flowers from the paper.

And this one is based on a sketch. Love this sketch that Dalis did. October afternoon on this one with some Bazzill Blossoms

Well that's it for now. We have a busy day ahead of us. I'm hoping to get some scrapbooking in today in between it all. Have a great day!

2 Sketches 4 You Card ~ September 15

Hello everyone, I've got my 2 Sketches 4 you card. I missed last week, just too busy. I decided to try out one of Alicia's new clear cards over a SheetLoad Short cuts. I must say I love this product. It's nice and thick and fingerprint resistant. Perfect for transparency cards. I definitely have to get more of these. I also used some Heidi Grace on this card. Love her products too. And to round it out some Kaiser bling, Hero Arts stamps, Stickles and of course my sewing machine.

Well, quick post today. Have a great one!

September SheetLoad Mini

Good morning. The September mini issue is available for download at SheetLoad. I got to create the issue this month. This is Skinny Mini. I did a card that fits a letter sized envelope. I had fun with these cards.

Also SheetLoad's sister blog, Shortcuts has their frosted and clear cards for sale today. They are nice and thick and great for cards. I have a couple here I'll show you when I get a chance.

Well that's it for today. Busy one ahead here.

Sisterhood of Scrap

Good Saturday morning. I know I've been MIA all week. It's been a busy one. Settling the kids into school has made it busy. I have been creating but that's for later *wink*

So this weekend I'm very pleased to be the Saturday Sketch Artist over at Sisterhood of Scrap. I found this site over the summer and there are some very talented ladies there and I'm so honored to be a Saturday Sketch artist this week. You can see the post here. And here is the layout I did with the sketch.

You can go to their site to see my original sketch. I'd love to see it if you do a layout with it.

So are you Divalicious? Would you like to do some layouts about you or women in your life? Would you like to scrap girly colors and add some bling? Then I have the place for you! Savvy'n'Sassy is running a crop from September 26 - October 5. We will have some great challenges and some amazing prizes. Come and check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Well I'm off. I have some more news to share, but that will have to wait! Have a great Saturday.

The September cardmaps are out at Pagemaps. I was lucky enough to be asked to do a sample with one of Becky Flecks card sketches. Here is the sketch I received and the card I did with it. You can also download it with the other cards at Pagemaps. I was very excited to do this.

I used the Chatterbox Happy paper on this card. I just love this paper!

Also, check out this Halloween kit at Savvy'n'Sassy

It's amazing!! It includes the brand new Pink Paislee - Vintage Moon paper. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. You can find out more information here
including pictures of all of the individual pieces in this kit. You can't see everything in this picture. I can't figure out how to size it correctly to do that. I'm a little technically challenged, LOL!!

Oh and are you "Divalicious"?? More details on that later this week *wink*
