I am so excited to share some sneak peeks of what I have been working on for A Walk Down Memory Lane! This month's featured manufacturer has been awesome to work with! Come back and visit on September 1st to see the full reveal!! And, you should definitely check out the blogs of the other AWDML DT members to see their sneaks, too!!
I have been having a great time making cards that don't open in the traditional way. I found the idea for this one on YouTube in a tutorial by Dawn. She has tons of fabulous ideas and it's super fun to tweak them and make them your own.
Check this one out! It looks like a "regular" card, but rather than open the traditional way, the top swings open (thanks to a brad) and it reveals your message underneath! Give it a try and share it with us in the AWDML Gallery.
Here is the card closed: And, this is how it opens! Cute, huh?!
Thanks for checking it out! I would love to see what you do with this idea!
This week has been so much fun!! I got to hang with Lucy and Suzann, and we even got to meet up with Lynn!! We chatted, went scrappy shopping, chatted, ate, went to the lake and chatted some more. As my daughter would say, "We definitely maxxed out the Fun-o-meter"!!!
And to top off this fun week, I get to share my scrappy fun with you!! Here's what I have been working on for A Walk Down Memory Lane!!
This first LO was inspired by a LO I saw on THIS BLOG. And, it uses mostly the title strips of the Daisy Bucket paper! I LOVE how it came out!! Here's my (not-so) little man when we went apple picking last fall. This features Fancy Pants paper and a sketch by Lucy Chesna!
So, I opened up my email today and got a fun suprise!! Check out what I got!!! :

Thanks to Lucy and the folks at SNR for checking out my blog and BIG congrats to all of the other recipients of this fun award!!!
I couldn't beleive it when POP! Out came the tooth! My daughter is a really light sleeper so we had to come up with another plan for the toothfairy. So, when I saw the mailboxes at Target, I knew just what to do. I did Elizabeth's box a while ago, and I got Colby's done just in the nick of time. If I were able to take a picture of the box, you would see a little tooth inside it! He popped it out while I was taking a photo!
Oh, yeah, baby!!! My Sketch World is the place to be for the month of August! We just kicked off the month long ABC Crop this morning with the first challenge! And, our sponsor, I Am A Scrapaholic, has provided three yummy kits for the grand prizes!!!
Since it is the first of the month, we also get to reveal the new sketch!! Check out the sketch here: My Sketch World Blog.
Here is my take on it: Have a great day!! Can't wait to see you at the crop!! :)
I am LOVING the 1st of the month when I get to share some of the scrappy goodness that I have been working on! This month at A Walk Down Memory Lane, the featured manufacturer is Daisy Bucket! I adore these papers! They are easy to work with and have a unique texture that makes them extra fun to work with.
This card is super cool and actually opens in the middle by pulling on the outer edges. Check out the DT blog for a tutorial on how to make it!
This is a fun card that opens a little differently, too! I am realy enjoying making cards that don't open the traditional way!
Here is my son at Wells Harbor Beach this summer. I really liked using the Bazzill InStitch'z Templates to do the title. I paper pieced the sun and my son even helped me stitch it!
Here we are picking strawberries this past june! I cut out a strawberry shape from one paper, and the leaves from another piece to make the strawberry! I was really happy with how it came out! The sketch from Becky Fleck was just the right fit for this LO, too!!
Thanks for looking!! Have a great day! And, don't forget to visit the AWDML store to pick up som yummy Daisy Bucket papers! The featured manufacturer is always 25% off for the whole month!!!
