September VLV Sketch

 Well, I finally had a chance to use the September sketch from Viva La Verve.  I tried both horizontal and vertical options.  It's definitely a fun sketch to play with and a great way to use up more of the piles of scraps I have accumulated over the years.

Last round of August VLV cards...

I have used the August VivaLaVerve sketch for so many cards this month, but I think this will be the last of them.  I am hoping to get some scrapbook pages done, so that won't leave any time for cards.

Anniversary cards using VLV August sketch

My parents are celebrating 48 years of marriage this month.  I used the current VLV sketch to make a card to send them.  Since I had everything out, I made a second card to add to my stash. 

 Here is a blank masculine card I am adding to my stash.  I used my new tiny attacher on this one. 
Just another card for my stash using the August VLV sketch.  I like the layered flowers here.

More VLV Cards

I decided I would stick with using the August VLV sketch for most of the cards I am making this month.  However, my husband did ask me to make a masculine card for a friend and I made a couple of options for him that didn't involve the sketch. 

 This is the card my husband chose to use this time.  I am putting the other card in my stash and will add a sentiment when I need it.

More VLV August Sketch Cards

I made a few more quick cards using the August VLV sketch and some scraps of paper.  These were for some church family members.

Viva La Verve August Sketch

I've missed the Mojo Monday sketches, so it was so much fun to see a return of the Viva La Verve Sketches for August.  I had lots of cards to make for church family and several thank you cards to make last week, so I used this sketch for several of them.

Fun Scraps

I had some scraps of paper lying on my desk, so when I sat down to make cards for the week I reached for those.  I also pulled out some dies I purchased this summer at our local scrapbook store.  I find that when I am making cards, especially, I don't want to take time to cut anything with the cricut. 

The coffee cup birthday card ended up going to the mom of one of the graduates I made a card for this year.  Funny enough I used the same papers for both cards...

Busy couple of weeks.

July is a popular month for birthdays and anniversaries.  I've been enjoying the chance to create some new cards, but I am looking forward to scrapbooking some pages for my youngest daughter one of these days.

 It was fun to pull the teddy bear stamped image I've had for ages and make it into a card for a sweet little girl that turns 2.

I made this card for a gentleman in our church that has his own carpentry business.  It put some stamps to good use.

Lots of Birthdays...

 Every once in awhile there seems to be an abundance of birthday cards that need to be made for church family members.  This happened to be one of those weeks. 

I especially enjoyed making the guitar card for our song worship leader.
