Whew!  I’m half-way through a CRAZY week! I managed to make some time this morning to get to this weeks 2S4Y Card, Laura’s fabulous Sketch 9.  I have been working with some older stuff recently, and this card is made with last year’s Fancy Pants Holly Jolly line, such a vibrant holiday line!  Actually the card below it is also made with the same line and loosely based on the sketch, only turned on it’s side.

Here they are:

Also, if you’re looking for a cool little project, My friend Jess posted an awesome Scrappy Hour Class at Scrap Shotz on Sunday night.  It’s a modified flag album and is too cute!  I made one to paste our miscellaneous business cards into, rather than having them all stuck into a drawer by the phone. If you’d like to check out her class and instructions, you can find them here.

Here is my flag album/business card holder:

That’s all for today, have a good one!

I have a quickie card to share… it’s for my weekly card challenge at Scrap Shotz.  Each week members are challenged to make cards using supplies that start with a given letter… this week’s letter was “C”.  I’m down to a few scraps of the beautiful Crate Sweet Branch line so I tried to use it up.  If you’re interested in participating, you can find my weekly card challenges here.

That’s all for today.

Happy Friday everyone!

Are you aware that World Card Making Day is October 4th?

Here is a some info about this special day from the website devoted to it (and sponsored by Paper Crafts:


World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to:

  • Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family
  • Kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season
  • WHEN

    The first Saturday of each October, kicking off the holiday card-making season, the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings.


    The card-making community worldwide, including hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retail sellers of products, educators, and press are invited to come together to celebrate this holiday and creative passion.


    It is a day to connect with fellow card makers both near and far, to applaud the creativity that powers the craft, and to provide an opportunity for card makers to connect and find resources that will empower, inspire, and encourage them in their card making.

    And now for the “HOW”:

    Scrap Shotz is hosting a World Card Making Day Mini Crop!  There will be card challenges galore, both seasonal and non-seasonal  There will be prizes and the unveiling of a seasonal card kit (or two)! 😉  Please mark it on your calendars and then come on by!
    Speaking of Paper Crafts, I am excited to share that they have selected one of my cards to be published in their upcoming Stamp It! Cards, Volume 3 idea book! *TOOT*!  It will hit the stands in late February and I am tickled.  While I’ve had a couple of layouts published, this will be my first published card.
    Nothing scrappy to share at the moment, I’m hoping to be more productive this weekend.
    Have a fabulous Friday!  Cheers!

    I’m double-dipping as they say… combining my 2S4Y Card for this week with my SSZ DT Challenge!  It was too perfect an opportunity not to take.  When I saw Kazan’s Sketch 9, I figured it would be a perfect fit with my gate fold card challenge so VOILA!  This is what I came up with:

    2S4Y 09/15 Gatefold "Love"

    2S4Y 09/15 Gatefold

    Here is a little peek at the inside, nothing fancy but looks a little more finished:
