A Fresh Air Challenge for Heart 2 Heart

I love the Fresh Air papers from Close To My Heart, so doing a Fresh Air challenge was a no-brainer for me. I'm liking the starburst pattern that has been around for many years and for some reason it passed me by. Now that I know how to do it, I love it!

Here is my card using the starburst pattern with the Fresh Air papers:

Supply List:

  1. Mink Cardstock
  2. White Daisy card Value Pack
  3. Fresh Air Workshop Your Way
  4. Juniper cardstock
  5. Espresso stamp pad
  6. Bonding Memories Glue Pen
  7. 3D Foam Dots
  8. Tombow Permanent Adhesive
  9. Acyrlic Blocks
  10. My Acyrlic Stamp Scrubber
  11. My Acyrlic Spritz Cleaner
Thanks to the Heart 2 Heart consultants for the challenges. 

Thanks for stopping by!


A Card Challenge for July

This challenge is for two challenges. 
Sketch #274 for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. 
It's also using the colors from the Color my Heart Color Dare Challenge.

It's been awhile since I've done any challenges and miss the meaning and purpose they give me. Thank you to all the consultants that take their time to put these together and go over the entries. Time is time and nobody has a lot of it. So, again, thank you!!!

Here is my entry:

Supply List:
  1. Mink Cardstock
  2. White Daisy card Value Pack
  3. Bashful stripped paper from the Beautiful Friendship Workshop Your Way
  4. Bashful glitter paper
  5. Glacier cardstock
  6. Glacier stamp pad
  7. Documented Cardmaking Sentiments C1719 Stamp Set
  8. Thin Cuts-Scallop Border
  9. Thin Cuts-Basic Ovals
  10. Bonding Memories Glue Pen
  11. 3D Foam Dots
  12. Tombow Permanent Adhesive
  13. Acyrlic Blocks
  14. My Acyrlic Stamp Scrubber
  15. My Acyrlic Spritz Cleaner
FYI-Item #4 is the Bashful glitter paper. That is our Color of the Year. Our year starts September 1st so this gorgeous color will be replaced by a different color of the year. The ink, cardstock and glitter paper will disappear as the end of the year approaches. 

One thing I don't appreciate until I do a challenge and document all the items I use to do what I think is fairly simple is that I have everything at my fingertips from accumulating items over a period of time (10 years as a consultant and  more as a scrapper). I love that and I can do everything I want or need to do and never have to run out to the store that wastes so much time. WooHoo!

Thank You for Stopping by!

Documented Papers with a Cricut Bike

My pink bike found a home on the Documented papers from Close To My Heart. I love the urban side of the papers with the old distressed doors and the whitewashed brick. I thought this was a perfect backdrop for my rather old-fashion looking bicycle. I used Central Park scrapbooking stamp set "Beautiful Reasons to be Happy. How can you not be happy with a pink bike that has a flower bouquet in it? 

Supply List:
  1. 3 x 3 Acrylic block
  2. Documented Paper Pack
  3. Documented Workshop Your Way kit
  4. Eggplant Stamp Pad
  5. Central Park Scrapbooking stamp set

Here is my video showing you how I put this layout together:

Hope you enjoy it!
