Little Red Wagon #248

Happy Wednesday!  It is my turn to post the challenge for Little Red Wagon this week and I thought it would be fun to see a camera on your card.

I created this card using an image from Sassy Cheryl called Say Cheese Please!

I used my Copic markers to color the image and the background paper on the card is Selfie from Reminisce.

I created the sentiment strip in Photoshop to combine a clip-art camera image with the word SMILE. 

If you would like to join in the challenge, stop over to Little Red Wagon and link up your card!  We always love seeing what you create :)

Little Red Wagon #247

It is that special time of year - Christmas in July! At least according to Jan! lol  She is challenging us this week at Little Red Wagon to create a Christmas card.

No problem, except it is hard to think about Christmas while enjoying the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer!

I decided to keep my card clean and simple and I just combined Kraft cardstock, white cardstock, vellum and some brown pattern paper to create a Christmas tree!

A bright red star button at the top with some twine and voila!  A Christmas card!

I do hope you will join us this week at Little Red Wagon.  Just create a Christmas card (it's never too early to get started) and link it up for us to see.  We will be sure to stop by your blog and say hello and you might even be featured next Tuesday! Have fun creating ~

Sketch and Crafty Challenge at TSF

Each month Two Scrapbook Friends issues a fun Sketch and Crafty Challenge.  If you play along with the challenge your name is entered into a draw for a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the store!

This month Christa designed this fabulous sketch...

...and the crafty challenge was to use a big number on our design.

Even though I can't win the $25.00 Gift Certificate (that would just be wrong!) I decided to play along.  This is the layout I created based on the sketch and crafty challenge.

I have to admit, that my inspiration came from a kit that Shelby designed for TSF.  After our production of the kit, we had all sorts of bits and pieces left over and they gave me the inspiration for my layout.  Thanks Shelby!

In place of the large photo on the page, I used the lighthouse.  It worked perfectly!

I incorporated the number into my title.  I dug into my alpha bin and used a mixture of fonts to create my title.

Here are a couple more close-ups.

Have you played along with the challenge yet?  If not, you really should!  Design something based on the sketch, use a big number on your layout, and link it up at Two Scrapbook Friends.  You have until July 31st, 2014 by 11:59 pm to enter your design and then you have a chance to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate!  I can't wait to see what you create :)

Little Red Wagon #246

I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous summer that we have been having!  This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is from Tracy and her theme is Vacation.  Perfect!

Since Tracy is actually on vacation as we speak, she is very flexible with our interpretation of her challenge!  We can do anything with a vacation or travel theme so I decided to use a travel image on my card.

I found this sweet image and colored it up with my Copic markers.  Then I paired it with a fun pattern paper that had a sun and clouds on it.

Be sure to stop by Little Red Wagon and see what Tracy and the other DT Girlfriends created for this challenge.  Then join in the fun!  Link up your own creation and we will be sure to visit your blog :)

Little Red Wagon #245

Hello! Our challenge this week at Little Red Wagon is from Jayne and she wants to see an Anniversary Card!

This is what I created ~

I wanted to do something different and I thought a couple of mugs with hearts would be sweet!  I cut them with my Silhouette and they are both embossed.

Then I wanted to get 'punny' with the sentiment and 'a sweet cupple' was the best I could do! lol

Now we would love to see what you create.  Make something with an Anniversary theme and then link it up over at Little Red Wagon.  We will be sure to visit your blog :)

Happy 4th of July!

I just adore the 4th of July and while I was not able to be with my family to celebrate, I did make up this fun little card for them!

This is a digi image from Sassy Cheryl and she is just a cutie, don't you think?

I colored the image with my Copic markers and then paired it with papers from Simple Stories 'Sea to Shining Sea' collection.  I just love this paper line!  It makes me feel very patriotic and a bit homesick all at the same time.

I finished off my card with a white and red ribbon and a few sequins, along with a sentiment I printed on my computer.  I did add this card to Sassy Chery's Neighborhood - Anything Goes - challenge.

I hope your 4th of July is spectacular and that no matter what country you live in you will pause and give thanks for all the blessings in your life.  Love to all ~

Little Red Wagon #244

Hello!  It's Wednesday and it's July and our theme at Little Red Wagon this week is Summer! Rosanne wants to see a Summer themed project and this is what I created.

I had some paper from BoBunny's Lemonade Stand collection and it was perfect to use for a summer card. I just love the bright, yummy colors! 

I did lots of layering and hand-cut some of the clouds to add to the card.

I really hope you will join us this week.  We love to see what you create!
