Hello there! Thank's for joining me today, I have a fun challenge to share with you. The Pals Paper Arts are hosting a sketch challenge this week. It's a great CAS sketch, so there is no reason not to play along. Link up your creation and you could be our next pick!
The new Amazing Birthday stamp set is, ok I am going to say it, AMAZING! I love the variety of images, they work together so well. Check out the die cut banner stamped in real red on vellum, fabulous!
This color palette of the Flashback DSP is fresh and fun. Since I needed a masculine card, I chose the more manly of the patterns. Some wonky sewing (on purpose!) helps to add interest without being feminine.
This whole paper pack is just a little bit distressed but not "dingy" which is a nice effect.
A matching envelope is in order. I always use the crumb cake medium envelopes, they are super sturdy and can hold up to even the roughest mailing.
It's back to school time! Mackie started her junior year of high school on Monday. I have a picture of her standing by the door with her backpack ever since kindergarten. One day (hopefully soon) I will gather them all up and do something with them.
I also used the Amazing Birthday stamp set to make Mackie a little bookmark note for her first day of school. I used the colors of her backpack for inspiration. Hello honey, rich razzleberry, and night of navy, they all matched very well.
We also celebrated my husband Chris' birthday, it's been a very busy week. Check out Mackie's smile, she got her braces off a few weeks ago, we are all very happy with the results.
