Tried a sketch

This was a few weeks ago and I forgot to post them to the blog Cardpatterns, but I want show them off. The challege was And these are the cards that I came up with:

I used some stash paper, a floral, a brown, and a cream. I used the sentiment "Thinking of you" from papertrey ink borders & corners {circle} in chocolate chip from stampin' up!. The bows are Martha Stewart ombre bow stickers.

My second creation was done with my sister in law. Paper was from the stash, grey, floral, and cream. Same sentiment, but in tempting turquoise by stampin' up!. The butterfly was cut from the same floral paper with my Silhouette SD. The bow was hand tied from some ribbon in my stash.

I really like the second one better, but I guess I had some time to play with it after making the first one. It could also be because it's blue, my favorite color.

Crafted journal for class

I had to craft a journal for my class and I enjoyed personalizing it. All I used was printer paper about 6 pages. 3 were cut with a 1/2 inch wide slit down the middle vertically leaving about 1 inch at the top and bottom. The other 3 had 1/2 x 1 inch rectangles cut from the top and bottom. The pages with the notches were bent and placed into the slit of the other three. When put together they open to form a booklet.

I used elmer's and blue glitter for the name, prima flowers, random paper cut into butterflies with my Silhouette SD placed with dimensionals, and small confetti flowers glued with glitter glue in silver
