A Feathery Thank You

I needed to create some thank you cards for a couple guys so I found some time to create.  I decided to go with a neutral pallet and pulled a few of my retired items. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

I used the Rustic Home Fundamental for the paper on the right and the word paper if from retired Florence. The bronze glitter paper is retired as are the gems.  I found this ribbon in my stash.  The feathers are from Artisty.

Happy Crafting!

Layout 26 ~ Layout Contest 2016

I am now home from a fun filled week at the Close to My Heart Convention which was held in Disney World and trying to settle back into my normal routine.  So thankfully I had designed a layout before I left for convention, because life has been busy since coming back home.  Particularly with this weekend being the start of the July Fourth Celebrations.  Every year there is a layout contest for attending consultants.  I entered but unfortunately I was not one of the lucky ones.  I am still super pleased the way this layout did turn out.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I actually combined Sangria with Florence.  I also used the Artfully Sent Cartridge to make the overlays behind the photos.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout Left side ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe splatters are done with the watercolor paints.

Sangria ~ Florence ~ Layout Contest ~ fall layout Right side ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe leaves are done with the rock-n-roll technique using Friend Tree D1677 and then fussy cut out.

Everything ABC ~ Letter J

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter J.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DIANA SANDERS’ Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

I have to admit the letter J is one of the more challenging letters.  I chose to complete a layout a JEEP, my son loves all vehicles but particularly one of our good friends Jeep.  I love the new paper packs and although the Magical paper would work fabulously for Disney, it was perfect for my JEEP layout.  Plus this layout works for my personal challenge and is layout number #18
