Featured at Color Throwdown

How excited was I to be featured as the Guest Star Stamper at Color Throwdown! When I saw the color scheme I thought about water coloring, which I haven't done in a while.  Don't you just love challenges?  They allow me to reach in to products I haven't used in a while or try a different technique.  The stamps used are by Rubber Stamper (image) and Lizzie Anne (sentiment).

Hope you take time and play at Color Throwdown!

Shaker Crazy

Just call me 'Shaker Crazy', but at least I'm using my crafty goodies!!!  I had fun in the craft studio.  My mother requested some thank you notes for those who blessed her during her sisters death.  I realized after making the first batch of six cards that the scripture missed the word  'your' between into and lap.  Don't you hate when that happens?   Well you know I had to correct them right?   The overlay of the butterfly is vellum.     It's a simple card, but I love the design. Embossing powder was used for the sentiment.

This graduation card was filled with confetti and sequins.  I used hot glue to hold the Congratulations confetti in place.

Photo Selfie Frames

Graduation Season has come and gone and it's time for trunk parties. TeTe Princess had a request for selfie frames!  
Hali is a graduate of The Central High and on her way to Clark Atlanta University. She is my motivational speaker headed for law school.  The board was painted black and paste was used to add templates for texture. 

Phillip didn't want the girlie look so I had to keep his clean.  I took out my markers to draw musical notes.  My crafty friend Samantha made the tuba using her Silhouette. Phillip is a graduate of Houston High and is on his way to Tennessee State University.  If you ever watch the band at halftime, he'll be playing the tuba in the Aristocrat band. He is my gifted musician.

They make me proud....from babies to college graduates.  The sky is the limit for these two!!!!

Embellishment Box Swap

It's a Parade of Embellishment Boxes at Scraps of Color.  This box was made for my partner Christa Stokes.  She creates the cutest layouts! Along with the Embellishment box, we had to make two handmade embellishments and mine were altered paper clips and an envelope with a few goodies.  Well since I couldn't put all the goodies in the envelope, I just added them to her box to mail.  Have you made an embellishment box lately?


Just a few things for her passion to scrapbook and paint

A Mother

This card was made for my mother on Mothers Day.  It was inspired by Viva La Verve May sketch.  DCWV The Gilded Paper stack was used to create this card. The stamp is 'A Mother Is' by Stampabilities.  I added the gold Recollection doily and Ranger embossing powder was used for the sentiment.  

I made a little pocket page to enclosed the sentiment that is actually detached with a note at the bottom and a little cash to spoil herself.  : )

Prima Doll Swap With A Twist

Scraps of Color had a swap "Prima Doll With a Twist!"   You could create a tag, pocket letter or journal or all three.  Below are my creations for my partners.  As you can tell, Nedine was my partner for the journal.  I wanted to create something inspirational for her.  The black die cut is actually a typewriter, but it's hard to see with the note 'Count it all Joy'. All papers are from Simple Stories Faith paper stack and the quotes and phrases are from Create 365 The Happy Planner Faith sticker sheet.  Stickers are all in the journal so when she turns a page, she will have an instant smile and a reminder of the goodness of God.

This Prima Doll Taylor was used for this Pocket Letter that was created for Walena using Me and My Big Ideas paper stack and other embellies.

This Prima Doll Chiara was created for Tracy using Simple Stories Life in Color paper stack and other embellies.

 This Prima Doll Keira tag was created for Gloria using Our Daily Bread paper stack and other embellies.

Crafty weekend

It was a busy weekend, but you better believe I made time to play in the craft room.  Let me share three projects I worked on.  They are all challenges going on at Scraps of Color.  The first one is to use a Robert Jackson digital.  The theme is "It's In the Song".  Let me tell you when I first purchased this digital, the song that came to my mind was "Standing in the Need of Prayer" by John P Kee.  You can listen to it here.  I'm a witness God does hear and answer prayers.
