Erik's Birthday Pages

I'm absolutely loving on the new planner system at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I have one "planner" for special moment scrapbook pages and another to remember birthdays.  At Crazy4Challenges, it's a sketch challenge this week that I used for inspiration for a birthday page for my oldest son (as if I could forget the day he was born!).  Here's the sketch:



And the right side is the page inspired by the sketch:


Fun!  The paper is from Heartfelt Creations (All Geared Up), and I am listing all of the Elizabeth Craft Designs products below.

I hope you decide to join us in the challenge!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Happy Momma's Day

Happy Mother's Day!  I have the best mom!  She's also an amazing grandma and friend!  Today, my design team sisters and I are creating presents for Mother's Day!

I made my mom a mini-album.  The two pics on the front of the album are the reason my mom is a mom - my brother and me.  The bottom row of pictures are several of my fave family pics that are a bit more recent :)


The products I used are listed below.  Thanks for stopping by.

Craftily yours,

It's the Simple Things

Fun happening over at Dare 2B Artzy today.  I'm posting!  (haha)  Here's what I made using the Take Time Stamp Set and the beautiful Summertime Petals Collection Paper:


Pretty!  I made this card for a co-worker who is retiring in a month or so.  I'm SO jealous!! <3

Scraps Fun

There's a new challenge at Crazy4Challenges.  This time, we are challenged to use our scraps in cardmaking.  I used scraps instead for these scrapbook/planner pages using products from the Elizabeth Craft Designs planner line.  Here's what I made:



The paper is scraps I had left from a old Graphic 45 line.    Here's a fun close-up of the tags.


And here's another close-up of my girlfriends and me.


Thanks for stopping by.  I do hope you join in the fun of the challenge and use up some of those scraps.  The products I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are below.

Craftily yours,

Karen

Foiling

If you've seen my last several posts, you'd realize how addicted I am to foiling.  Just in time because this week's challenge at Crazy4Challenges is about foiling.  I made this card as part of a class with my crafty mentor Sharon and thought it was super cute.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you join our challenge!

Craftily yours,

Artzy Get Well

I'm posting today over at Dare 2B Artzy!  Here's what I made:



I'm addicted to foiling.  The fish is from Dare 2B Artzy's Restore the Soul set.  Perfect for a card for a co-worker who has been sick.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanksgiving

I finally got a chance to do a bit of scrapbooking from my Thanksgiving trip, inspired by a sketch over at Crazy4Challenges.

Here's the sketch:



Very very loosely, the bottom half of this page was inspired by the sketch:


And here's the double-page lay-out:


I had such a good time with my parents at Thanksgiving.  My job was closed because of bad smoke in California, so I took the opportunity to drive the 14 hours to see my parents in Yuma, AZ.  We had a great meal, did some geo-caching and literally howled at the moon!

These pages were created with some wonderful products from Elizabeth Craft Designs (listed below).  They are part of their planner line.  What I love about this system is that it all goes together so seamlessly.  The pages are cut with the dies and fit perfectly into the planner binders.  :)

Craftily yours,

Karen
