Happy Sunday! It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week. I decided to use Toile Tidings DSP and the fabulous cardinal from Toile Christmas. I really do love this Cardinal and it's one of those sets that will be around in my craft room for a while! Here's my card: I hope you will join us and play along this week. We would love to see what you do with this sketch. If you are looking for some inspiration, the design team have some fabulous cards for you: Ann Claire Jaydee... Read more →


Happy Saturday! I have a card that fits two challenges... I took the sketch from AtlanticHearts and three items from the inspo list at Festive Friday.

I die-cut the rectangle from the middle and mounted it... Read more →


Happy Sunday! It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's CAS week and Claire has a very timely theme for us: I think we can all agree that this is probably not a normal back to school year! Instead of the usual route, I decided to use the Stampin' Up! Making a Difference digital set. This set was created to support the response and recovery fund for COVID-19 and has some fabulous scripty sentiments that are perfect for many occasions in the current climate. I used the "just breathe" sentiment - love the... Read more →


Happy Saturday! I got a little time in my craft cave today and played along with the fabulous new sketch at AtlanticHearts they really do have great sketches! I hope you will pop along and check out the wonderful design team and submission cards - and play along! I had this idea in my head to use some of my favorite SU DSP - Whale of a Time. I also inked up the fish stamp from the Whale Done stamp set with Night of Navy ink and stamped it multiple times to make it look like a shoal of navy... Read more →
