September Card Challenge is Up

Happy September! You know what the first of the month brings... a new card challenge. I have a new one up at Scrapping the Moments. They had a blog hop with the theme being "Back to School." So make a card for that special kid or youth wishing them a great year as they get back to school. Come on over to see more information about the challenge.

Also, we have lots of other fun challenges over at Scrapping The Moments. Our design team produces some amazing work each month.

Here is the card I made for this challenge. I had a little hard time making a card for a child but I had fun and stretched my skills. This is the first card I ever made for a little girl and the first card I made using a stamped and colored image. Plus, this was the first time I used a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 size card. So I was really getting out of the box. You should try it out.

Used yellow cs, Echo Park pp, yellow ribbon, red flowers, owl stamp, colored pencils and pop dots on the owl.

So, join us in making cards for those special children and youth in your world. They will be so surprised to receive a "Back to School" card from you. Thanks for looking!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
