Pretty in Pink...

Hi ya'll, and Happy Fall!

Brrr....a bit of chill to the air today, but I love it! Hope it's pretty where you are, too.
We're preparing for DH's 50th class reunion this weekend - fun, right?

My thoughts and prayers are with those dealing with the destruction with the hurricane.
I can't even imaging dealing with all of that mud, grime, etc.

Here's a card I made using some beautiful Stampin'Up! stamps.
Thanks, Sally for a fun morning of crafting in pink for Breast Cancer month!

This shows the pretty envelope we made to go with our cards.

Here's the card alone:

And here is what I used on the inside of the card.


I'm going to enter this in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
Here is their sketch:


Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs and smiles,

Background Check at Power Poppy Stamps

Hello!
Happy weekend, everyone!

I needed a 'just because' sort of card today, and decided to use this beautiful image 'Everything's Rosy' from Power Poppy, and play along with their 'Creative Confetti Background Check' challenge.

I don't have too much in the way of backgrounds, so I created my own, with Copic markers. I just used the colors in the card and lots of dots to make a fun background. Hope it works okay for the challenge!

Here's my card:

Have a wonderful weekend - the weather here is beautiful!

Hugs and blessings,

Fall/Harvest/Halloween at Scor-Pal!

Hi everyone!

I'm totally in shock.  It. Is. October. ???? How did that happen? It seems like I just drug my shorts out, and now I'm wondering where my boots might be packed! Lol...gotta love moving, right?

It's time for a new monthly challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - 'Fall/Harvest/Halloween'. Creations need to include more than one score line, and a 'Fall/Harvest/Halloween' theme.  

Here is my project for this month. As usual, this one goes to the wonderful Sunday School class at church that I love spoiling! One of the ladies had her 86th birthday last week!  Each little box is filled with chocolates.




View from the side

Thanks to all of you who have emailed, called, or sent cards while I've been under the weather. Each day brings improvement. Hopefully I'll be my old cantankerous self by the Christmas holidays!  I have follow-up appointment on October 15th. Curious to see what chest x-rays show.

For this project, I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, & 1/4" Scor-Tape.

Thanks for looking! 

I hope to see your summer creations in our Fall/Harvest/Halloween Scor-Pal challenge!

We also have a ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative!Challenge at Scor-Pal! 

Happy September everyone!

Life is better...

Hello!

I'm back with another fall card.  This one was made using a Power Poppy digital stamp, Olive & Oak. If you've never shopped with them, you are missing out! Marcella is uber-talented, and her flowers are so lovely!

I'm entering this in the Creative Confetti challenge at Power Poppy, using a Power Poppy image with a 'spicy' theme.  I took a bit of liberty here, thinking that olives really spice things up, right?

Here's my card:

All coloring is done with Copic Markers. The shine on the acorns and olives is Glossy accents.

Thanks for stopping by today - it's great to be back!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Crafting with Friends...

Hello out there!

Did you think I had abandoned you all?
I hope and pray that you are all well, and enjoying this beautiful, crisp fall weather!

Whew....what a summer it was here!
Hoping the fall is a bit slower, giving me a bit of time in my craft cave.

A good friend, Sally McDonald, is a Stampin'Up! demonstrator. She has a 'Card and Cuppa' workshop at our local Panera's the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. She brings 'stuff', we eat and create, and have a fun hour or two of crafting with friends.

Here is the card that I made Tuesday at Sally's workshop:


This is a fun set - so versatile!

Have a great rest of the week - will try to be back tomorrow!

Hugs and blessings,

Patti J.

September Scor-Pal Challenge - More than one score and CAS!

Hi everyone!

Where did the summer go? Seems like it flew by, doesn't it?

It's time for a new monthly challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - 'CAS' (Clean and simple). Creations need to include more than one score line, and a 'CAS' theme.  


I'm feeling a bit better, but just can't get with it some days. This CAS challenge was just what I needed this month. Between my illness, and our move from the country into the city, my mojo has been MIA!!!  Hopefully, by October, I'll be more creative! 


Here is my project for today:




This sweet card will go to one of our church friends who is not feeling well.

For this project, I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, & 1/4" Scor-Tape.

Thanks for looking! 

I hope to see your summer creations in our CAS Scor-Pal challenge!

We also have a ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative!Challenge at Scor-Pal! 

Happy September everyone!

Treat Box Tutorial


Hello friends!

I'm back with a friendly reminder that you still have a couple of weeks to participate in the challenge this month at the Scor-Pal blog... you could be our monthly winner!

This month, the challenge is 'The Heat of Summer'. As always, you must include more than one score, and follow along with our fun theme. Be sure to check out the blog to see what our talented Design Team members have shared!

My project this month was very simple. Most of you know that I've had a wicked 'bug' since the end of June. I'm beginning to feel human again, but now we are in the middle of a MOVE!  Moving is not for sissies, and move is definitely a four letter word...lol.  We've been in our beautiful home on our beautiful hillside for over 32 years. We've accumulated a lot of stuff...

Anyway!  Here's what I created for the challenge:




And here is how I did it!


You need two pieces of cardstock.

Outside Cover = 3.25” x 11”
Score with long side at top of your score board at 5.75” and 6.25”
Decorate front as desired.

Inside ‘Box’ = 3.25” x 5”
Score on all four sides at 1”
On two long sides, cut on score lines, cutting in only to the fold line.
Angle cut your box ‘tabs’ for a smoother fit.
Assemble box, adhere to bottom of cover, and fill with goodies!
Punch hole(s) in top as desired for closure.
(My punches are all packed, so I grabbed a ribbon scrap and stapled this sample closed)

For this project, I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, & 1/2" Scor-Tape.

Thanks for looking! 


I hope to see your summer creations in our Heat of Summer Scor-Pal challenge!

Happy June!
