I've been applying for CTs again so I thought that I should update my blog. I've been doing lots of scrapping over the last two years and am really enjoying it.

I don't have any layouts yet as I need to download Eva's products first but I will be sure to post something once I've created it!
Check out her kits - they are fabulous!

A friend of mine suggested I apply for a creative team member position with Courtney Wilson at The Digi Chick and I was accepted! I am so excited about this! I've been digiscrapping a lot lately and it'll be great to have certain kits to use at certain times. It'll challenge me to get more done and move outside my comfort zone :)
Here is my first layout using one of Courtney's kits (May Grab Bag with LOTS of goodies in it!). It is such a great kit and will be used over and over, I'm sure.
If you're a scrapbooker and don't do it digitally, I would highly recommend checking it out! Even if you don't do everything digitally, it's a great option! I love it because I can close the computer and my "mess" is gone ;) I have found that making cards is how I get my "paper" fix
Have a fabulous week!

Now, on to a couple cards. I keep forgetting to take some pics, but here are a couple that I've made lately.
Both are using Magnolia stamps (apparently that is all I've been using lately). I won't put the supplies I used as I'm tired (and lazy?) but, I did stamp the main image on PTI cardstock with Memento ink.
I am still using my Copics a lot and LOVE them! I recently took a class on them and learned a lot about blending, colour choice, etc. I feel I'm missing some major colours in my collection, so I will be making a purchase sometime in the future!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

This is one of the Christmas cards that I'm sending out. I've made a bunch of different ones, but they're all very similar - simple but nice. This one uses Old Olive as a base with Real Red and DSP for layering. I can't remember the DSP off the top of my head but it's the one in the mini (frosty day?). I love it and will have to make sure I get at least one more pack before the catty ends! I used Baja Breeze ribbon around the layers. The stamp is from Cute & Curly and is punched out with the Curly Label punch. I stamped it again in Old Olive and then cut out the oval and mounted it using a dimensional.
This card uses Blue Bayou as a base (5.5 square). The patterned paper is by Basic Grey (Granola) - I LOVE it! I need to buy lots more, I think :) I did have some trouble matching the colours with my stash of solid papers but I do like how it turned out. I used Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip underneath the patterned layers. I ran Blue Bayou ribbon along the side and made a little bow for it. I'm not happy with the bow so I think I'll have to adjust that before sending this one out. There are crystal rhinestones on the bottom right corner as well. Tilda in striped tights is coloured in using Copics, of course! I have more of these on my wish list for Christmas :)
Thanks for looking, as always. I love hearing what you all have to say! Stay healthy and the countdown is on! I hope you're all more organized than I am this year. I'm not finished any of the gifts/cards I'm making. Yikes!

I submitted this card for the first Pink Cat Studios challenge. I love how it turned out, even if I deviated a little from the rules (I used 3 different types of embellishments instead of 3).
The challenge was to use:
1 ribbon (twill tape)
2 backgrounds (Basic Grey Boxer printed paper)
3 embellishments (stapes, star brads, swirl clip.
I used Cranberry Crisp for my base along with Night of Navy and River Rock (all from Stampin' Up!). I coloured in Billy with Copics, blending a red and a brown for his handkerchief and pants to make more of a "cranberry crisp" colour - it looks perfect in person). I sponged the edges of the image panel with River Rock ink and stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip on the twill.
Thanks for looking and a special thank you for all my followers!
