OWH - Design Boot Camp - Get to the Point (Creating a Strong Focal Point)

Hello again,

On to lesson two in the Design Boot Camp......Get to the Point (Creating a Strong Focal Point). For this card, I used stamps I purchased at Scraps of Love (LSS), the package insert has run away, so I'm not sure the who the maker was.

The pattern paper is from a Rhonna Farrer paper pack. The solid paper is from my scrap box (woot, woot using up the scraps, the Scrap Wrangler, would be proud of me).

I also used some Washi tape on the card. The finished card size is A2.

I encourage you to take a look at the boot camp lessons and enhance your card making.

OWH Design Bootcamp - Monochromatic

Hey everyone,

I am working my way through the Operation Write Home Design Boot camp (Boot camp page). The first lesson is 'The ABCs of Color (Basic Color Theory). I approached this lesson and chose to try out a card with the Monochromatic theme.

The pattern paper is from Colorbok, a Wal-Mart brand, and the solid paper is something I had in my scrap basket.

I can't remember where the brads are from they were in my stash. Finished card size is A2.

Go take a look at the design boot camp lessons, there is something for everyone.

Here a pic of the finished card, please ignore the blue clamps. :-)

Cute Dragon card

I stopped at my Local Craft store, Scraps of Love to do some retail therapy and found the cutest stamp that I just had to play with.

The finished card size is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Background paper is Now & Then by Teresa Collins. Sentiment stamp is by Fiskars 'All Year Cheer' and the background for the sentiment is from a decorative tape set by My Mind's Eye.

The dragon is Daisy Dragon by Talkabout Impressions and colored with copics. Colors used were W6, W5,W4, R22, R21, R20, G19, and YR04.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a safe and enjoyable celebration.

We just got a Cricut Imagine so I will get to play with that in my card making. I have to work in getting the new machine in to the craft room.

I'll be making something crafty later this week.

See you all later!

New Years Resolution - just a little early

My blog ran into some scheduling hiccups in 2011 and I haven't been able to get them resolved, until now.

My New Years resolution is to post a project once a week starting in January.

My hopeful goal is that by getting in a routine and posting once a week, I can be ready for some design team calls that will happen towards the end of 2013.

I look forward to reading your comments and having some crafting time for my soul.

OWH - Sketch Challenge # 80

Happy Sunday!

I finally got some crafting time and made a card using the Operation Write Home Sketch 80. They post a weekly challenge with a sketch to get you started, see here to get you started.

Here's my flavor of the sketch:

The finished size of the card is A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4). The background paper and two solid pieces are from a coordinating set of 8 1/2 x 11 paper that I got for Christmas in an exchange and I can't remember who it's by.

The sentiment comes from the Discover Palette title stickers and the flower is from Reminisce paper flowers and both are from Creative Memories.

I gave the flower some dimension by using a pop-up dot.

Hope you all enjoy your upcoming week! Be safe!

Good evening,
