Cardabilities Sketch #102 - Learn, Live, Hope for Today Card using SinCity Stamps and WRMK

Today there is Sketch #102 on Carabilities and it is fabulous....I just love Karan Gerber fabulous versatile and so easy to implement on your cards or other projects.
So here is the sketch....and my take on it.  I started by using a 4 1/2" card white Card base that I added a piece of diagonal stripe paper from WeR Memory Keepers Notable Collection to the top.
I embossed a piece of white card stock using Couture Creations Vintage Girl Embossing Folder twice. One for the card front the other to cut the center out of for a mask when I applied my Broken China Distress Ink over the top of the embossing. (This will keep the oval white so you will be able to stamp your image). stamp the Daisy Bouquet from the Sin City Stamps Memories Set with Black Memento ink twice, once directly on to the oval the second on to a piece of white scrap paper, color using your favorite markers, fussy cut out two of the daisies from the scrap paper and apply to the top of the colored daisies on the oval, this will give you dimension. Place on card base with pop dots.
Stamp the sentiment from the Sin City Stamps Memories Set with Black ink and place it on the card front with pop dots. Add leaves, bow and butter fly that you have made to the top. The butterfly is stamped twice and fussy cut, colored and layer to make it look like it is flying. 
On the inside of the card I place a stamped honeycomb piece to the top of a piece of the diagonal Notable Paper. Love to finish the inside of my cards. So make sure to check out the challenge on the Carabilites site and link up your projects using Sketch 102. Hugs Pammejo

"Win" I Grow Up....with Craftwell and Avery Elle Stamps

Today I am sharing with you my layout using Avery Elle Bottle It Up Stamp with the Bottle It Up Elle-ments Die. We were asked to look at the Avery Elle Blog and find a card that inspired is the card I selected.
You Make the World Better Card by Heather. I selected Heathers card because I loved the sentiment "You Make the World a Better Place", as soon as I seen it  I remember my grand daughters paper she wrote about "Win" She Grows Up She Wants to be a seemed so appropriate  because teachers make the world a better place.
I hope you enjoy Annie journal, if you can get through all the miss spelled words but it is the thought of a second grader that counts.
I used the Bottle It Up bottles as my embellishments. I stamped them with black ink on WeR Memory Keepers Inked Rose and using my Craftwell eBosser die cut them out using the matching Bottle It Up Elle-ment Die. I love to make my own embellishments so the Bottle It Up Elle-ments die was perfect.
I inked the circle stencil prior to placing the journal page onto my white background paper to give a bit of the look Heather achieved on her card along with randomly stamping a few of the small flowers from the Bottle It Up Stamp Set.  I hope I inspired you to check out the Avery Elle Blog as well as the Craftwell Blog to see how the designers inspire you each day... never know what will inspired to create something fabulous.

Project Life Pages with WeR Memory Keepers Jet Set Collection

I have just started doing a bit of project life pages and just love that I can get multiple photos, mementos, etc on two pages and when you have as many photos as I do from our trip to Alaska this helps a lot.
I found this sketch from Sketchabilities on Pinterest and though it would work perfect from layout page using We R Memory Keepers Jet Set Collection.
 I did a bit of stamping using SinCity Stamps Art Journaling and if you can believe it my coffee cup that was sitting on my desk while I was creating. I think it gave my layout a nice affect since it mimic the sketch a bit.
Here it the pocket page...with some of our memorabilia and a photo of friends we traveled with. 
 I used the same stamp on a couple of the journal pieces so there would be consistence in my pages....
 I love how I used the smaller journal piece to make it look like a gate to store our tickets behind.
Here is another pocket that I made from the smaller 6x6 paper, cutting just the Alaska half off to form the pocket. 
I saved everything so I would have it if I decided to use it in my Alaska Album....better to have then not have is my motto. 
Again some of the fun use of stamps from SinCity Stamps. I hope you check out both SinCity Stamp store where I have my own collections of stamps, chipboard books, chipboard, stencils and mask available and as always you have to check out WeR Memory Keepers Store for all of the latest products.

 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!
Today is the last day of the Blog Hop for Stencil Girl Products and Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Kathy, Tammi and I are sharing out projects with you but remember to visit the rest of the blogs to see all the fabulous inspiration and enter to win some wonderful prizes. Challenge #10 for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog is Show us your inner mixed media diva!

There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play! So come play along with us!!! I made a layout for the challenge using a photo of my youngest son and his beautiful bride of two years.
I started by spraying my WeR Memoy Keepers Farmers Market paper with three different colors of Dylusion Sprays, once dried layed my Stencil Girl Circle Stencil down and applied modeling paste. I repeated it with my tag I die cut out of World Win Ultimate Cream Card Stock. 
After the modeling paste dried you can see how the mist came trough the paste, pretty cool right. I stamped my paper and tag randomly with my SinCity Stamps honeycomb stamp and black ink.
With the left over paper I punched a bunch of little flowers out and I mean a bunch, layered them....
and created all these fun little flowers...of course I had to add a gemstone in the center of each.
Placing an inked double mat that I made using World Win Paper to the top of my paper I placed my photo on the top.
Finally I added my tag I made from World Win Ultimate Cream Card Stock using WeR Memory Keepers Farmers Market to the top of my layout. Adding a few metals and some ribbon. Well I hope you enjoyed my inked up, sprayed up, paste up layout and try your hand at making something fun using your hoards of products and remember to enter it in the challenge on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.

Today I want to remind you to Be Yourself...I am hoping that my card makes you feel like summer time.
I made my 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square card base using white card stock, layering my light blue corrugated paper to the front using Xyron Tape Runner
I ran all my pieces I cut out through the Xyron Sticker I layered my pieces on top of the corrugated blue paper.
 Die cut out the largest of the Nesting Flowers from Lifestyle Crafts through your eBosser.
 and ran it and half of the Loop Mini 8 paper I had punched out through the Xyron Sticker Maker.
Of course I need to share this photo again in case you missed it...not only can you run paper but you can run ribbon through the Xyron Sticker Maker.
So I finished my card by adding the Loop paper 
 piece and scallop flower paper to the top of the card before I placed the scallop and ribbon. Don't forget to add your sentiment and bling
and of course a beautiful screams summertime.

Day Three Craftwell and Xyron Summer Blog

If you are looking for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge and Stencil Girl Blog Hop click HERE!!! 
Here is my Hello Card for the hop... 
I made my card using Avery Elle Bottle It Up Stamp along with matching die. I love how clean the eBosser from Craftwell cuts dies but the embossing is out of this world the depth it achieves when used with your embossing folders.
Here is a closer look at the Faded Crackle Embossing Folder, just amazing is all I can say. I stamped the largest of the bottles from the Bottle It Up Stamp Set and filled it up with the pretty little flower from the set using different colors of Memento Inks and added it to the top of the card with pop dots. Don't you love how I tilted the bottle to let the flowers flow out onto the card, smiling...
Make sure to stamp your sentiment prior to embossing, it will give you a cleaner look. I added my borders to the top of the card using Xyron Sticker Maker, love how easy it is to use and it adheres to your project so wonderfully, added some gemstones and wrapped a bow around the top of the bottle with a bow. Hope you loved my Hello Card and hop along with us at Craftwell and Xyron... see how to play along by just clicking HERE!!! Hugs Pammejo

Summer Fun Blog Hop with Xyron and Craftwell Day Two...

If you are looking for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge and Stencil Girl Blog Hop click HERE!!!
 Here is my Thanks Card using Xyron and Craftwell eBosser...
I started my card by first making my 5" x 6 1/2" card base with white card stock. I added the swirl pattern paper from Echo Park Hello Summer Collection to the front using Xyron Tape Runner. 
Running my green Kraft Cordinations paper through the eBosser using Teresa Collins Damask Embossing Folder. 
 Along with a bit of the yellow pattern paper.
 Placing both pieces on to the swirl paper with my Xyron Tape Roller.
 Placing the Nesting Doily Dies on the eBosser Magnetic Mat I was able to run three different size dies through the eBosser at the same time...I love that the platform is large enough to do multiple dies.
Here is a closer look at the Doily pieces once they were layered together using my Xyron Tape Roller...I added the top one with the Thanks sticker to the top with a pop dot, finishing the front with a pretty bow, a bit of machine sewing and a small enamel dot.
And a closer look at the inside of my Thanks Card, love how the Xyron Sticker Maker makes adding borders to my projects so easy.
