Papertake Weekly - it's sketch week with a twist - plus a little give away!!!

Hey everyone!  Hope you're having an awesome start to your week! To all my friends in the states,  this will be my last post before the holiday, so wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I took tomorrow off work to get ready for Thursday, and I'll also be watching the two older grandsons as well. So it should be a pretty busy day. But at least I don't have to get up at 4am tomorrow. YAY!!!

With this being the last Thursday of the month, it's sketch week at Papertake Weekly, and we are sponsored by the awesome Heidi over at Simon Says Stamp!! Did you know Simon Says Stamp carries Art Impressions stamps? Yep, they sure do!! Now Dawny has put a new spin to our sketch week challenges. You can still do the sketch, but you also have other options as well. Check out all the details on the Papertake Weekly blog!!

For my card today, I used the Gobble Set from Art ImpressionsNow I just happen to have an extra set of this adorable stamp, so if you'd like to be in the draw for it, just leave a comment below and I'll draw a winner for it on Dec 2nd!   This was the card for my November class at Scrapbook Paradise.

Art Impressions along with Scrapbook Adhesives!

Hello AI Fans!!

Today I wanted to show you a card I created using the beautiful Caroler Girl and Lamp Post (back for a limited time) from Art Impressions.  I've had this precious caroler for a while, and knew as soon as I saw that lamp post that it would be perfect with her!! I definitely need some practice coloring a night sky though!

So have you heard that we had the privilege of doing a product swap with Scrapbook Adhesives?  We received some awesome products to play with and I used several of them on this project.

 
I used both the 3D Foam Squares and the E-Z Squares Adhesives on my project!

Papertake Weekly - Soooo Girly and an album designed by Frand Garcia!!


Hi everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week the challenge is soooooo girly!! I don't think that one needs any further explanation, does it??!  We are sponsored this week by our very own Mary and Andrea at The Ribbon Girl! So much yumminess to be had in their shop!!

Speaking of yumminess, I had the most amazing class from Frank Garcia w/Prima this month!! We made some of the most exquisite albums ever!! That man has so much talent and he is SO sweet and kind!!! We do indeed love him and I can't wait until he comes back again!! This is one of the albums we created, and if this doesn't fit our challenge, I don't know what would!!  Frank not only designed the pages in the book, but he also designed  the book itself which we built from scratch with chipboard and cardstock!!  It was a six hour class if that tells you anything! :)  Thank you Frank Garcia!!  If you click on his name, you'll go to his blog where you can see pictures of our classes here in Reno (yep----that's my clock in the picture!! can you see the grin on my face right now from where you are???)   And while you're there, don't forget to do yourself a favor and follow him!! So here's a look at the amazing cover!



Yummy, right???  Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all the wonderful projects from the design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Papertake Weekly challenge - Two or Four legs

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great start to your week! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly , and this week the challenge is Two or Four legs. That means your project has to have something that has either two or four legs. We are sponsored by the wonderful folks over at Whiff of Joy!  For my project this week, I used an adorable little lamb stamp that I had to look hard for. I received the cutest card from a friend that had this cutie pie on it, and then I had to go on a search! It took me a while, but I found the maker, and that led me to the stamp. It's by Azadi Eades, and I believe it's titled Dancing Sheep (but I'm not sure about that).








Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the gorgeous creations by the design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
