Echo Park It's Your Birthday Layout

       I put a Jolee's flamingo sticker over where the Echo Park flamingo already was, making it a 3D!!

I used Echo Park It's Your Birthday collection, and Bo Bunny Green dot paper as part of the sketch, Jolee's Flamingo stickers, and pink doilies. I just LOVE how it came out!!! This was my birthday for 2020 and we attended a Stampfest here in Orlando. Hardly any venders came but we had a blast and then ate a little restaurant here called Melao Bakery. I recommend it for their fabulous desserts, and delicious food. 

 This is an old Page Maps sketch for a single layout from

Christmas Party Sketches in Thyme #494 Layout

                                             Sketches In Thyme #494 November Week 4 Sketch

Using My Minds Eye Christmas papers, and other odd papers and cardstocks, I used the sketch to commemorate this awesome party in 2019. My friend Lynnette, had it at her mom's house, with the tallest tree I have ever seen totally decorated!! She said over 2000 ornaments!!! So as a tribute to her and the tree, I did NOT cut the photo down as the sketch showed. Also, gold twine was used at the top of this layout and for the bow and on the ornament from Prima Marketing. Poinsettia is from Petaloo.

Happy Christmas Sketches In Thyme Layout

                             Fussy cut and layered to make the left side stand out like the sketch.
                              Doubled up on adhesive squares to make the title stand out more.

Using the sketch and My Minds Eye Christmas papers, Pink Paislee Luxe Stars Placemat in gold, lots of 3D foam squares and Krylon Spray Tack to adhere that, I put this layout together. Bazzill cardstock in Ponderosa and off white to mat the photos. Charcoal cardstock to fussy cut around the Santa after fussy cutting him out of the paper. I guess you can see that I used the "Star Placemat" as the large circle on the page.

Christmas House Mouse Mass Cardmaking

I needed to do some mass Christmas Cardmaking and this was what I decided to make. I custom cut the red fronts so as to make A-2 size cards. I started with a set of pre-made card fronts but they were not that size I has wanted so I used that as a template. I loved this Impression Obsession Ornament die and began cutting through a ton of Bazzill gold foil cardstock. Needless to say, I ran out fast!! I bought more and used some Recollections gold as well, except that it has a duller finish. The House Mouse Bow single stamp was a gift from Bunny Here's a previous post of the same card. I am trying to have 40 done by the time I send them out!!! It keeps me busy!
Items used: MISTI, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Copics, Bazzill Gold Foil, Platinum 6 Die Cut machine, Spellbinders All In One Tool, Impression Obsession Ornament die, Red cardstock, A2 size premade cards, Magic Mat, Offray gold and red ribbon, Adhesive dots, Fiskars 12" trimmer and clear adhesive.

Fancy Pants Reindeer Games Layout

                                                        Sketch In Thyme November #492 Week 2

Loved these pictures and found this Fancy Pants Wish Seasons with the funny deer pattern paper, and then found these Paper Bliss Reindeer sticker packs from Hobby Lobby, (older stash I've had). This took me so long to complete because I kept having trouble with the sticker pieces falling apart! So re-glued the reindeer and the bells. It worked out in the end since the deer on the circle had been attached to the rectangle "banner" at the bottom! Sometimes it is just meant to be... The cardstocks are all from Bazzill: Raspberry Parfait embossed dots, Diamond (sparkly white). The felt ribbon (stash) doesn't want to stay glued and had just a little bit of it but "made it work"!! LOVE the way it came out for a double layout with all my pictures!! Realized I should of taken time to have a group pic!! Well, who knows the next time we will get a big party together! Hope to again soon!!
