Sketch blog hop

Welcome to the sketch blog hop!  I haven’t had one of these in a long time!  I love card sketches & find them very inspiring. I also love to see how these crafty designers take the sketch and make it their own!  I am always impressed with their talents!!!

So sit back & follow along with our hop. You are at the first stop.

I have to admit – it was an SEI card kit – but it fit the theme nicely!!!

Here’s my card:

Snowman Post

Hi Everyone!
Have you been working frantically on your Christmas cards?  Do you have a really long Christmas card list?  I think I need about 60 cards this year…. and I’m a few short… so I’ll be making some more cards this week (in addition to finishing up my Christmas shopping)… Oh well, what would I do if I wasn’t behind???

Well this year I did something different… Every year I mass produce my Christmas card – I make 60 of the same card….   This year I made a bunch of different cards.   I got an SEI card kit that was too cute not to make – so then I bought some cute papers and then some other stuff.. so I have a bunch of different cards.  I think it was more challenging to make them all but I don’t know that I will do it this way next year.

So my snowman card is one where I borrowed a stamp from a friend – I’ve been trying to do some Tim Holtz stuff since I find it very challenging….  I don’t know that I’ll want to give this card away though.. .:)

And here’s the SEI snowman card

Hope you enjoyed my Snowman cards!  Have a wonderful christmas & happy 2014!!!!


Thank you theme!

Hi!  It’s Jennifer – I haven’t posted in a long time!  I’ve been busy & haven’t had much time to craft. I’ve been very thankful for my awesome design team who has done a great job with each of the themes!

So November’s theme was to do a thank you card or thanksgiving theme. I didn’t have a thanksgiving stamp so I went with thank you…
I went to the scrapbook expo yesterday (had a great time & bought way too many  goodies to play with) so I wanted to use some of my new stuff. 
Here’s my card:

I used my new Tim Holtz leaf die on some suede paper from SEI. Then I cut some with regular paper and inked them with my new distress inks. Then layered with pop dots. Stamp is stampin up. 

I think it needs something else but I can’t quite put my finger on it. If you have ideas let me know!!
Have you been shopping lately?
Have a great rest of your weekend!
Jennifer
