Graduation card for a seamstress...

I took some extra time to create this card for a young lady we have known for about 13 years.  It's hard to believe she is graduating from high school this year.

Stash busting for my boy...

I finally used a K&Company kit that I have had FOREVER!  I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

Mojo Monday 498 and Using Up My Stash

Here is what else I was able to use with the papers I started with for my last post--4 more pages and 6 cards!  I loved this My Mind's Eye paper and can't wait to add pictures to these layouts.  I've also been asked to hold on to a couple of the birthday cards to use for my girls next year.

Challenge Sketch

Here is the sketch I used for the layout below. 

                                       I love how it turned out!

Here are the 3 sets of 2-page layouts I made using some My Mind's Eye papers I picked up at a thrift sale at our LSS.  There were 6 full sheets and 1 sheet of cutouts.  I used some K& Company stickers, CTMH wooden shapes, and enamel dots from Michaels.

Graduation 2017

This is the second graduation card I have created this year.  With graduation cards I like to try to make the card "feel" like the graduate.  This card is for a musical, theatrical, traveling guy.  While I didn't get any musical elements in there, I think it fits him.

BTW...  The time on the clock is the same time his graduation ceremony started.

Sweet 16

I had the opportunity to make this special card for a lovely young lady that recently turned 16.  She is beautiful inside and out.

Cards to complete sympathy card order...

 Here are the final 11 cards for the 20 sympathy card order I had a few weeks ago.  I've already posted the first three; however, I wanted all these cards in one post so I can refer back to it if need be.  You can find the other 9 cards here.

I have a sweet friend that is recovering from surgery, so I wanted to make her a card to encourage her while she heals.

Scraptastic Thank You Cards

There were several ladies that worked to make the ladies event at church such a success.  I wanted to acknowledge their efforts, so I found a design and used my scraps to create them.

More Mojo 496

 I used the current Mojo Monday sketch to make another group of cards--a couple graduation cards and some thank you cards.  The thank you cards are for some of the men of our church that worked so hard to prepare a beautiful breakfast feast for our ladies event today.

Mojo 496

I am slacking a bit on the card making this week.  The only cards I've made are these, using the Mojo Monday Sketch 496.  I made these cards as thank you cards for some teachers my kids have once a month.  I started with finding the largest piece of paper in my pre-cut scraps and then went from there looking in appropriately sized scrap pieces.  Organizing my scrap pieces by size has been so useful in using them up!

Twenty something gals...

There are a couple of young women that are leaders for a group two of our children participate in.  They love the Lord and use their gifts for His glory.  I made these cards to encourage them in their callings...

Using some CTMH sketches...

I have all the CTMH how-to books, so I used one of the Make it From Your Heart books to make some of these cards.  This time I was using up some more precut images--circles, squares, flowers...

Back to the circles....

Getting closer to using up all the precut circles I had in my stash...
