hiatus about a hiatus...I guess I'm due for a new post:) I recently finished quite a few scrapbooking pages, and it's about time that I post some:) I had to make some companion pages for my wedding scrapbook. I'm usually a 2-page scrapbooker and in the past have always done both pages at the same time, but lately I've been doing one page at a time with different sketches. I can't decide which routine I like better:) Anyways, here are some of my latest pages

I used sketch #35 from 52sketches52weeks for the above page (sorry for the blurriness, but I'm too lazy to take another pic). I paper pierced the green paper and connected the dots with a white gel pen for a faux stitched look. The butterflies were stamped first using my For all you do stamp set from SU! onto patterned paper and cut out. I used teeny white brads for the bodies of the butterflies (they look better in real life:) I love this grouping of photos! I made this to go along with this page I made a while back:

I made the next page as the LS to go along with this one:

I absolutely loved the rub on in the top right corner and had to use it's mirror image for this LS:
I included the vows that Jesse and I wrote for each other. I'm loving this one:) Only a few more pages until the wedding scrapbook is finally done:)

Thanks for stopping by!

Card Patterns Sketch #40

I'm getting back into the card making groove with some card sketch challenges. Here's a card I made using the most recent on from Card Patterns:

Oh how I love that Dasher stamp! I just can't get enough of him! I can't wait to start pulling out my red brads to make him Rudolph instead:) I really liked this sketch, I loved the clean lines and that I was able to use so many patterns on one card:) I didn't add any brads, buttons or eyelets in the bottom left corner because I thought it was cute the way it is:)

-Merry Moments dsp from SU!
-real red, and whisper white cs.
-real red ink
-red satin ribbon
