Seas the Day Cardmaking Workshop kit

The Seas the Day card workshop has a beach feel. The cards work well for greeting cards for men or women. They are whimsical and fun. The kit comes with thin cuts that coordinate with a stamp set. These cute cards are filled with detail and interest.






Supplies:
  1. Seas the Day Cardmaking Workshop
  2. Sapphire Ink Pad
  3. Smoothie Ink Pad
  4. Mink Ink Pad
  5. Adhesives
These cards will work well for sending to friends and relatives that you can't see during the Covid 19 times. Consider this especially for the elderly that won't be able to get out or have visitors. I'm sure there are many lonely people out there.

Thanks!

XOXO

Building a Scrapbook Page of Hubby Building a Plane









This is a 2 page layout of Jim and his friend Dick working on Jim's RV 12 tail kit. I used the discontinued papers Urban . These papers have worked perfectly for the other pages I put together of Jim and Dick. This is an ongoing album for Jim. Part 2 adds liquid glass to the foam letters because of the color not drying. The liquid glass locks the color in place. I also added some clouds and a plane as embellishment.
Supplies: Saffron ink padSaffron Ink Pad
Sapphire ink pad Dreamy Holographic paper Mix-in paper
Adhesives

We Rise By Lifting Others My Card from the Mojo Monday Sketch 534

We Rise By Lifting Others this is the sentiment I used on my card. The sentiment came from the "Love These People" stamp set that is being offered by Close To My Heart from now until April 30th. What a perfect sentiment for these tough times. The sketch comes from Mojo Monday. The colors come from Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge.

May all of you stay safe and healthy. Please heed the warnings of distancing and washing hands. The measures we are hearing now came from the 1918 flu pandemic that was probably the worst deadly episode in history. The measures did help mitigate the transmission of disease.

Julee from Mojo Monday has given us a trio of sketches to take us into April during the Corona virus Challenge. I like her challenge much better than the challenge that is facing the world. I've also combined that challenge with the Color My Heart Color Dare 386 It's good to stay busy and give yourself things to do and find a reason to laugh. For this challenge I used the Yesterday and Today papers that are perfect for a heritage/vintage feel. The stamp set is the March Stamp of the Month and is only available until March 31, 2020.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 361: A Punny Card Interpretation

This is my interpretation of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 361 for the week of March 25, 2020. I used the upcoming April Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart. It is so cute!

And, yes, I totally overdid it!!

This blog post will show all the projects and videos for Seas the Day Scrapbook Workshop kit. There are 4 projects, single and two page, and one that is shown as a single and I made it into a 2 page.

Project 1:

Project 2:

Project 3:

Project 4:

So project 1 was a 1 page layout and I changed it to a 2 page layout. I also used the Cricut cartridge You Are Here to make a palm tree and crab. On project 3 I created the "this is the Life" title from the same cartridge. I changed it from Bon Voyage. I changed the top border also. Not big changes, I just personalized it for my family. 


Videos for all 4 projects:













Supplies:


  1. Seas the Day Scrapbook Workshop Kit

Thanks!
