Double Pocket Card Challenge at MemasCrafts

Designed this holiday card for MemasCrafts Challenge.  She provided a tutorial and it was fun to make.  I used DCWV Black Currant Stack.  LOVE the purple.  I used a dress form I received in a swap at SOC.  The tab punch is by McGill.  Added some flowers and pearls from Michaels and black feathers from Joann's.
Front cover

This is the inside.  The tags are from a Sizzix die cut. Added a dress form from Forever Young Cricut cartridge which is double matted on a Spellbinder die.  I cut one in two to add a little color on the black inside panels and put some cream fiber on the edges. Stamp is from Michael's dollar bin. "Share the moments that bring you joy."

Sure thank you for looking and welcome your comment!

SOC 7th Anniversary

Scraps of Color is celebrating 7 years.  We were asked to celebrate with a card challenge as to what SOC mean to us. 

It's a group of ladies and a gentleman that truly shares everything from Papercrafting techniques to recipes &  cares about each other.  The word has got to be spreading because we are over 1,400 members!

There is a lot of 'RAKing' going on. Since I misspelled it and caught it after I posted I thought I would just add my touch on the definition.  It's Random Acts of Caring & Kindness.  How about that? That's what we do.

I get so excited about Friday Nite Challenge.  It's fun hosting and playing along.  You're guaranteed to have a fun evening whether you do the 30 minute challenges or chat. 

I have great memories of dear friends I've met, chatted, and texted over the years.  It's been a wonderful journey and I look forward to many more years!

Breast Cancer Awareness month

Have you done your monthly exam?  I have several friends, aunt and church members who are survivors.  GOD is good and I’m so glad I contribute to the cause.  I use to walk faithfully until I hurt my ankle, but I do donate $$$$!   Since this is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month I created a pin to wear instead of the ribbon.  I colored the stamp, added a few embellishments and mod podged it to keep it from getting damaged. Then I cut some cardboard to keep it firm and added a bar pin on the back.

This is my favorite card.  Found the digital images from Loo-Loo Designs.  They are so beautiful together with the messages used for the card.  I am loving this  gateway design. 

Supplies Used:

Mamatine's Sewing Machine

Clementine pronounced ( klem-uhn-teen) is my aunt affectionately called Mamatine.  She is an awesome seamstress.   Each time I visit I love to see what new things she’s added to her sewing room.  One year for Christmas I made all my aunt’s shadowboxes and her title was I love you ‘Sew’ much.   I used the photo of her receiving the shadowbox in the layout. 

This week on Platinumscraps we were asked to create a layout using the Pagemap sketch above.  When I saw the dressform I knew exactly what photos I was going to use.  It was fun using some old buttons from my stash.  I wish I would have used some floss in a few of the buttons.  The dress form was from the SOC dress form swap and of course I had to embellish it.  The paper is from SEI I found in a Kreatorville Kit and the titleframe is from Crate paper.  The animal print is from Me & My Big Ideas.  I used Martha Stewart edge punch under the journaling.  TFL and I welcome your comments
