Family Time LO for a Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) The middle of January already and man it's cold here in PA, best time of the year to be scrapping. Now on to the Sketch N Scrap challenge for the day. A wonderful sketch from Heather to play with today.

Such a fun grid style sketch today to play with and this is what I created with it:
Still playing with my 2021 pictures this was from March when we had our annual Easter Egg hunt and who says your to old to hunt! Not in our household everyone gets to play. Definitely good quality Family Time here. I used my current counterfeit kit: A New Beginning for everything but the Easter Eggs embellishments. I love to use scraps of papers for my creating.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

The Mountain LO for CKC challenge

 Good Morning and welcome to the 1st challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host is Cindy

Cindy has challenged us to Use Your Tools. You may have received a tool or two for Christmas. Wells let's put it to use and let no dust collect on it. So, pull out your punches or dies, that stamp set, your embossing folders or that new cut file and make a project with it. 

So I decided to use a few punches on my layout

This is the layout I created using the punches above for my embellishing.
Using my kit A New Beginning, I pulled the papers that I wanted to use and some scraps too and just punched away :)

Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

Joy Christmas Card for Sketch N Scrap challenge

 Good morning and welcome to a new year and to the 1st card sketch in 2022 over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. I love this card sketch that Lisa created, here's the sketch: 

I used it to make a Christmas card that I already gave out :) As it was going out in the mail I kept it pretty simple and flat. This one is cute for Christmas cards.

CKC - January 2022 Kit Reveal - A New Beginning

Happy New Year! and a new year of wonderful scrappy kits from Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog :) First you should have arrived here from Misty's blog  I'm excited to see what she has put together this month. Cindy is our host this month and she chose: 

a digital kit from Traci Reed Designs called On the Go and Going Slow.She says: I love the colors, the large variety of elements, the variety of three sets of alphabets and of course there is the "busy as a bee" and a "snail, slug life" side. I still have the pictures to scrap of 2021 that are not all about Christmas and this will be perfect for both Christmas, Travel, birthdays or celebrations - just all-around scrapbooking. I have to agree love the inspiration cause I have lost of photos from 2021 I'm still scrapping that aren't just Christmas.

Here is the kit I put together:

A New Beginning

 Yes isn't that what January is about? We make those new goals for the year, Spring is about the same thing new beginnings. Sp my kit has a taste of Spring in it loving the colors of the kit and ready to play. I brought in some old with some new in the kit. Stampin Up, Webster Pages, Basic Grey, CTMH and a few papers from some paper pads I have and want to get used up.

The papers:

I've got a total of 29 papers in my kit and with a challenge in one of the face groups I belong to this will be easy to get used up this month. I'm itching to be scrapping.
Got some enamel dots, die cuts and I'll add some sequins to the kit
One of my goals this year is to do some pocket pages too, so I added some pocket cards that can either be used for pages or for a layout.
Alphas and words that I want to use this month, I've got a well used alpha in it that I will be playing scrabble with to get the letters used up and out of my stash. You'll see one this each month as I try to use up some well loved alpha sheets
A nod to the bees with this photo play collection that doesn't have much left to it other than the sticker sheet and frames plus some cork I found that has some bees on it too
Finally a few new sticker sheets that I got this past week. The colors match well to the colors of the kit. I think it's going to be a fun month to scrap. First I need to see what the other girls have pulled together and a good place to start is over at Tara's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list

Here’s the full hop

CKC Advent Calendar Kit

 Good Morning! I want to let you know about this fun thing we are doing this month in the process of making a kit for December, a daily kit over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I'm planning to play along and hopefully post here daily too. Today is basically the details of what we are doing and if you want to play along then the you'll find all the info over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog

 

Counterfeit Kit Challenge is all about shopping our own stash & creating a personally curated kit. 

Today is the beginning of “the most wonderful time of the year” but that often means our crafty time gets pushed aside. The LAST thing you need is another item on your To-Do list, BUT we still need a little craftiness in our days – and we’re here to help. How about working on a holiday gift to yourself?

We will have a quick daily prompt to hunt & gather a box of goodies for Christmas by spending 1-5 minutes each day tossing a prescribed item into a kit box for a project of your choosing to be tackled in January, or even between Christmas & New Year’s Eve! Easy-peasy.


It's A Dog's Life LO for a Sketch N Scrap challenge

 Good Morning and welcome :) Wow are we really into December! 2021 just flew by and I think this month is going to also. Now on to the Sketch N Scrap challenge for the day. A wonderful sketch from Heather to play with today.

This is the layout I created with it

That background paper that looks like hair I think fits well for Buddy's hair coloring and it came from my 100 Pattern Paper Pile 2021 challenge :) a good handful yet to use up before the months out :) The rest of the papers for the layout came from my Dog theme drawer :) I love the addition of the pocket card next to the photo. Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.
