Welcome to 2015!! Ok….I am a little late to tell you Happy New Year but I hope that your year has started off well. I am returning from my hiatus to bring you this fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. It is no surprise that it is awesome since it is from the creative mind of the oh-so-talented Amy O’Neill. The color queen has come up with this fun and cool sketch….perfect for your new year inspiration!
I thought this sketch would be super fun with the cards from Project Life. I know these are meant for memory keeping but they are also so great as elements on cards. I thumbed through my Playground set and found three that I thought worked really well together. I really loved the heart page and chose it to be the focal panel. I pulled out a mini clothespin that I had from a tag kit and added a little bit of Epic Day Washi Tape to the top to make it coordinate with the cards. I thought the background needed a little something too so I embosses the Whisper White panel with the Large Polka Dots embossing folder. Finally, I cut out the sentiment with my retired Expressions Thinlits.
While this word thinlit isn’t available anymore, there is a new set that would be tons of fun for a card like this. The thinlits are called Hello You and they have a coordinating stamp set called Crazy About You. Think of all the quick and fun little cards you can make just like this one for various occasions. Just change up the PL cards and sentiments. And just in case you missed the sounds of happiness all over, the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog is now live. My order is going in today and you can be it will be expedited.
During the holidays I made exactly one card. This one. I was gone for much of my boys’ break and spent some serious time on the road with United. The highlight of all my travels was a visit with my Freshly Made Sketches friend Linda Callahan! She is such everything you expect from her blog and cards! Funny, sweet and such a joy to spend time with! I have a few more days of busy stuff with United and then some serious crafting time! Every nine months, pilots have a check ride and mine is next Monday and Tuesday. Lots of studying to do and then time at our training center. Hoping my Occasions order will be waiting when I get home from that!!!
I know you are going to have fun with our sketch this week. The design team certainly did and their work is what you have come to expect….awesome! Thanks so much for stopping in today. I’ll see you again soon!
