Happy Retirement card for a Sketch N Scrap challenge

Hello and welcome :) It's the weekend and locally yardsale season has begun :) I plan to get out abit and look for a few things for the apartment.

Welcome to the 2nd card sketch of April over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. A fantastic sketch from Lori 

I decided to create a retirement card for a friend of mine that is lucky enough to retire. I've got a few years before I can, so looking forward to it though. This is the card I created:

With the move last year I'm now getting to the boxes of things that I don't use often or need. I found this old dazzles kit and the papers and stickers were perfect for the card. I had fun creating this card from that sketch. 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.

Love This LO for a Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) 2nd challenge of the month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog Tara says:  I'd like to challenge you to use ABSOLUTELY NO PINK on your layouts! I know-the collection has lots of pink in it.  However, it also has blue, green, and kraft! Create a layout without using pink.

No problem!  Love this challenge as for me no pink means nature photos usually with all the green. So I focused on the greens in my kit

Chose a page maps sketch for my layout design. I had fun creating this layout with 5 photos too. The ribbon in the tag came from last month's kit that roll is still sitting on my desk.

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.

Seneca Falls LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome. Here we are in the middle of April, we have been having some wet weather, lots of rain. Seasonal temps though. We got a fun challenge layout over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. This sketch was created by Lori

This was a fun layout to play with and came together very quickly
Getting through the waterfalls at Ricketts Glen State Park is going smoothly with just a few left to do with fun sketches like this. I have a very nature/neutral kit I've been using to capture these pictures.

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.

CKC - April 2024 Kit Reveal - Spirit of Spring

Welcome to my blog and the 1st of April that means it's a new inspiration for us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge kits to challenge us to look through our own stash and choose a kit to play with. 1st you should have arrived here from Julene's Blog I'm looking forward to checking out her kit and see what inspired her. We are thrilled to have Nikki Ihus join us as Guest Forger, she is a YouTuber you can find her at Nikki's Scrapbooking Adventures

Tara is our host this month and she says:

For this month's inspiration kit, I chose a digital kit from Traci Reed's Designs!  I chose this kit because it's a little different than what we've been doing.  I also see a few items that we can counterfeit for Forgeries on the Fourth!  This will a fun kit to recreate!

Let's take a look at the main kit!  Look at all that wood veneer!

 Here's a photo of the papers individually so you can get a better view of those.  Paper is always the basis of my kits and where I typically start!

Love the colors of this kit the navy blue, corals and kelly green is a great nod to Spring green and blues skies. Here is my kit for April:

Spirit of Spring

Here are the papers I chose using some from Simple Stores, Cocoa Vanilla, PinkFresh Studio and some from some paper pads too.
The wood I chose:
Close up #1 has the embellishments that I pulled from Simple Stories
Close up #2 some PinkFresh Studios and the 3 colors of mists I want to use with this kit
Close up #3 some diecuts, chipboard and buttons
Close up #4 Lots of embellishments from PinkFresh Studios Simple the Best
Good well rounded kit for my April scrapbooking.
