OWH has a fun sketch challenge this week.
Even though I usually struggle with sketches, I found this one rather inspiring. I even got brave enough to switch it up a bit. I made 3 cards from it today!
Supplies used: Paper-All My Memories, Image-Milk Coffee Stamps, Sentiment-Desert Diva
My mom has a Provo Craft mini sewing machine that's sat unopened for months. I borrowed it and tried it out. It's not the simplest machine nor does it give the best results, but maybe I just need practice. Any tips? Reading Simple Scrapbooks by Cathy Zielske. She encourages relaxing on crafts and to remember that imperfections add whimsy and character. I'm trying it out, so my crooked stitches are staying put! Linking up to Milk Coffee Stamps Challenge-Use Purples and Greens.
My second card is by far my favorite.
Supplies Used: Stamps by Eat Cake Graphics and Hero Arts, Paper by We R, Ribbon by Offay, Clothespins by Provo Craft
The ribbon actually is really wide, I cut it in half to make it fit. Then I decided to fray the ends for a more folksy look. Linking up to: Simon Says Stamp and Show-use a bit of brown, Crafts and Me-Anything Goes, Crazy Amigo-Warm Colors, Make It Monday, and Forever Friends-feature and animal.
My last card turned out nice too. This week's midweek throwdown is cards that use blue and yellow. The cute flower is actually three brads-how fun is that!
Supplies: Paper-Target, Ribbon-Offay, Brads-Making Memories, Image-Doodle Pantry
Linking up: OWH-midweek throwdown, The Cheerful Stamp Pad-in the garden, and Doodle Pantry-use a DP image.
It's been a rather accomplishing day.
