One-Layer Wednesday...It's All About The Size

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Welcome to One-Layer Wednesday [OLW 94].

This weeks challenge is all about the size.  Create a different size card other than an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).   Below are a few ideas, but feel free to make any size you you wish.

Here are a couple of  3 x 3's.  I just love this sweet size.  They make the perfect gift enclosure card or  love note, tucked inside a briefcase or backpack. 

Now, if you are wondering about an envelope for your card, here is an easy tutorial for any size card.

OLW94 Rules
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!
2. Create a different size card other than an A2 (4 ¼ x 5 ½) size.
3. Post your creation online and link to it using the InLinkz button below. Please link to the individual post on your blog rather than your blog’s main page.
I can't wait to see what you create.

ROTC Scrapbook Lay-Out

Friday, June 22, 2012

Today's scrapbook layout features the ROTC title from P.S. I Love Scrapbooking.  With just two photos, a few military style embellishments and the perfect title, this lay-out came together in no time.  For added interest, I punched a few gold stars and adhered them to the title.    

This handsome young man is Chandler.  He is also a member of the Allatoona High School Air Rifle Team with my daughter, Sarah.

Paper: Bazzill, Designer Paper (unknown)
Accessories: Scrapbook Title - P.S. I Love Scrapbooking, Cricut, Star Punch, Button, Twine

Less is More... and Another Sketch Challenge!

Thursday, June 7, 2012

The Less is More challenge this week is Red, White and Blue. As an Air Force wife, red, white and blue just screams the United States of America, our military, and patriotism to me!  I knew I had to make time to play along.

I also wanted to share a new challenge I found.  While commenting on a blog posts this morning, I discovered a new sketch challenge, retro sketches (where every sketch is a blast from our past...).  Many of the sketches have a clean and simple feel to them and their blog is adorable!  If you enjoy sketch challenges, you'll have to check them out (disclaimer - this is not a paid advertisement)!

And here's my card: red, white, and blue with lots of white space for the gals at Less is More.

I just love to make those shabby chic ribbon flowers...

Stamps: Retired (Sorry, I really need to stop using this stamp ) A Muse
Ink: Memento Nautical Blue (New 2012 color)
Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White (card base), Canvas Corp Designer Paper, Bazzill
Accessories: Handmade Ribbon Flower, Reflections Brad (Flower Center), Sizzlet Die (Leaf)

You can find this weeks One-Layer Wednesday challenge at Susan's this week. I hope you'll play along.

In this picture you can see where I added "salt" to the rim!

Stamps: A Muse
Ink: Memento Tuexedo Black
Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White
Accessories: Twine, Glue Pen, Stamp Positioner, Martha Stewart's Crystal Tinsel Glitter (salt), and Copics
