Day 352: AHSC So Very Special Valentine Card

There's an adorable new sketch up over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
I still had all my La Vie En Rose Complements packets out from my project last night, so I decided to do another card with only white cardstock. I layered on arrow stickers for the bottom of the card sketch. Then I layered on polka dot washi tape for the smaller panel.  
I used three of the heart bull's-eye and a sentiment banner from the La Vie stickers. Then I topped the center target with my favorite little guy from Animal Greetings. He's holding a Fundamentals glitter heart. I hope you'll pop over to AHSC to play along this week!

Day 351: Sending Love Valentine Card

I wanted to make a sweet valentine card tonight using La Vie En Rose, but I couldn't find my paper packet, just the Complements, so I had to get a little creative...
I started with the new sketch from Retro Sketches and some white cardstock. I filled in the spaces using bits of stickers from the La Vie En Rose complements packet. I used the divider pieces between the border strips to create that striped background, and the polka dot border sticker to create the pomegranate dot piece.
I stamped the plane from Lifting Spirits (which is sadly retired), then masked the seat area and added the raccoon from Animal Greetings, the Operation Smile benefit stamp set. My markers are still buried in the cardboard towers yet to be unpacked, so I did a light wash of color with my waterbrush. I did have the essentials in my travel tote, which, of course, includes wiggly eyes!

Day 350: Share the Love Blog Hop

Welcome to the Share the Love Blog Hop.  Share the Love is not only an adorable stamp set, but with $7 of each set purchased donated to Operation Smile, it's also doing good for children in need. You might be arriving here from SHEILA'S BLOG. We have dozens of consultants sharing their love for this stamp set, so let's hop!
I decided to start off with the new sketch from Mojo Monday. I filled the sketch in with Penelope papers and green washi tape. I love this delicate rainbow polka dot print!
I stamped the telephone image in Black, Canary, and Thistle, then paper pieced the image before adding details with a tiny black journaling marker. I stamped the arrow image onto the background and added the heart bubble topped with a Penelope Complements sticker. I outlined everything with the same tiny marker.

Share the Love is available through the month of February - contact your consultant or CLICK HERE to get this sweet set and help change the life of a child. Next up on the hop is VICKIE'S BLOG. Happy hopping!

Day 349: Love You Frog Card

I think I am in love with this teensy colorful polka dot print in the Penelope paper packet. And this adorable little frog in the coordinating pocket scrapbooking cards...swoon! 
This card was inspired by the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I trimmed the PML card to fit the card sketch, then matted it with the green pattern from the reverse of the polka dot print. I added a fussy cut Thistle heart onto his cute little tummy. The stamp set is called Share the Love, and it's an Operation Smile special available only this month.
I topped off my little frog with a couple of wiggly eyes. Now it's back to unpacking for me!

Day 348: Penelope WYW Pocket Scrapbook Layout

Oh my golly, I wish I had already unpacked my Shot Box. Or even knew where it was. I could not get rid of the glare on these cute Penelope pocket scrapbook pages
I love that the new Workshops Your Way kits come with these Pocket cards to cut apart - though I do often opt to use them in card making instead of the Pocket Scrapbook layouts as intended.
I think this adorable frog is my favorite of the Penelope cards. The cards are all printed with one orientation on one side, and the other orientation on the back so you can mix them and use them in any direction your pictures require.
I take a lot of square photos, so I just cheated out the rest of the 4x6 pocket using pieces of other cards, scraps of Penelope paper, and washi tape to hold it all together!
