Well Christa put the pressure on for me to finish the Wild Card Wednesdays with yesterdays post. UGH!! LOL
I found this sketch on a new to me sketch site and thought it would be quick and easy to do. 

Sorry the photo is dark but the colors look amazing in better light. :)

Totally Tuesday

Well as some of you may or may not have noticed, I have fallen down on the job, or maybe I have just lost my scrappy mojo. Thankfully Chelle has not or you would have nothing to look at here at Scraptures. SO here is an update on the latest at Scraptures. Besides being steady busy with my other business, and having no time or mojo to scrap when I do have free time (I spend it in the pool or doing puzzles lately) I have decided to close the kit club. August first kits were the last kits for the club members. I should have had some Tuesdays Temptations and Finally Friday stuff done in advance but alas, I did not. I am really hoping to find some time and inspiration to create soon. I am also hoping to participate as my last event in Scrapfest Kitchener. I have enjoyed every kit I have put together and all the Scrapping events I have participated in, but I believe the tine has come to say good by. I hope you have enjoyed the scrappy goodness we have posted here in the last 5 years. Thanks for all your support.

WCW August 10th

A really quick card today. I found a cute sketch on Case this Sketch and then looked at my kit.
I was going to use all chipboard pieces but then realized that the front of the card would be too heavy and it would just fall down..not good. So I used the sentiment from the chipboard stickers and added ribbon to it. Then instead of using stamps, because that wouldn't have been enough dimension (although the stamp set in last months kit would have worked perfectly) I used the little enamel dots.

Sorry it's so dark..not much light this morning.


Items used:
Chipboard Sticker:My Mind's Eye "Kate and Co"
Enamel dots: My Mind's Eye "Kate and Co"
ribbon/cardstock unknown

WCW Aug 3rd

Just a quick card using this months kit. I used 2 different patterned papers (each is the opposite side of another one). The arrow is a sticker and then I stamped the cupcake, cut it out and pop dotted. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz one. 

Sketch is Mojo Monday 459

Finally Friday

Justnick @ The Nook - Happy Day: Well July has come and gone. This is the last Friday in July, which makes me sad.... have not had a lot of time to scrap (enjoying the pool and yard this summer) so instead of sharing some of my work, I will show some summer inspiration. Enjoy  Love me some Simple Stories!!!!

WCW July 27th

This card came together quickly the other day. I was pulling out the papers and scanning some sketch sites and found the perfect sketch on Freshly Made Sketches
The patterned paper is all scraps left over from other cards this month, the doillie is from the kit and then added the chipboard shape. Easy Peasy.

Tuesdays Temptations

This weeks layout was easy but a but more time consuming. I love love love all the little words and embellishments. There were only a couple pieces of pp added and the rest were embellishments. I was happy to find this layout as I added the doilies to the kit last minute.  Super cute layout and I think I am going to use a picture of my sweetheart on this one!
