ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hello, my friends!

It's Friday, which means it's Sketch-y Friday at ScrapMuch?
and I have another layout to share with you! :o)

Here's the wonderful sketch Laura created:




For this layout I've used a couple of photos of my niece Rachel.
She's the same niece from my previous "Artist" layout.
Isn't she adorable?
Again, these are older photos.
She is playing with my Mom and Dad's dog...Rascal.
I was going to crop the photo down when I realized it was my Dad's arm.
It brought a tear to my eye, and so it had to stay.


I really like the pink and grey colour combination!
Here's a closeup of one of the embellishment clusters:

Happy Easter!

Hello, friends!

I'm popping in with a quick little Easter share before my next round of DT posts begins!

A while back I won a gift certificate from Magnolia-licious Store
I got lots of great new stamps, including several sweet little mini Magnolia stamps.

These stamps are seriously mini!
I stamped them on watercolour paper, 
and had a wonderful time colouring them up with my new Tim Holtz Distress Markers. 
This is the first time I've used them...and they're fun!

To showcase the finished images, I adhered them to some die-cut matchboxes. 
Originally I had planned to fuss them all up with ribbons, lace, doilies, etc. 
Once they were on the matchbox, I decided to keep it simple with just these tiny flowers from my stash.


I stamped a lovely Amy R Easter greeting on the back.


Wouldn't these be sweet placed around the dinner table?
Of course they would have to be filled with treats!


These little matchboxes measure 2 5/8" X 2 1/8" X 7/8".



Materials Used:
Papers: Watercolour Paper, Recollections - Cardstock;
Stamps: Magnolia Stamp - Mini Bunny Tilda, Amy R - Easter Blessings;
Markers: Tim Holtz Distress Markers;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Die: Stampin' Up - Matchbox Die;
Tiny Flowers and Pearls - My Stash.

I wish you all a Very Blessed Easter! 
Enjoy the treats while we remember to Celebrate our Risen Lord! :o)

Cards and More Shop - Masculine Tags

Hello, my friends!

It's time for another project share for the Cards and More Shop.
  I have created two masculine tags using a Dutch Doobadoo template.
Both tags have kraft cardstock bases, with a layer of Maja Design paper on top.
The edges have all been distressed, with both ink and a distress tool.
Then I have added a Tim Holtz sentiment, and some fun embellishments.


Here I have added a film strip and some feather dies.
The bow is a really cool mesh ribbon.


I love this gear border die that I added to the left side!
On the top right side, I added the flag die.
Finally, I added some great metal gears and brads.


I hope you like my fun tags! :o)

These are the products I used from the Cards and More Shop:





Noor Design - Feather Die
