Graduation Greeting Card *by me*

While I love digital scrapping, I still love playing with paper & tape, and I still love sending handmade cards to my friends and family. This week I created a fun card to send to my brother, Jesse, who will be graduating college. I used my digiscrap kit, Hike & Seek, to create the graphics, then printed & cut them out in order to create a hybrid greeting:

I really like how this turned out – especially how I was able to make a “masculine” card, as that can sometimes be a challenge for us ladies to pull off! :)
Hope this might inspire some of you to give hybrid creations a try, or give you some ideas for making cards for the men in your life! :D

Blessings & happy scrapping y’all! :D

A Whole Lot of Peeking Going On!

2010-06-05 07-12-17_DSC00869_Vga

That’s Turkey Lurkey. He’s a wild turkey who hangs around our place every day lately. For some reason he is strictly a loner… well, almost. One day I saw him get all puffed up & make funny barking noises (these were a little different than the usual gobble sound they make) … the rest of that day TL had a *girl* keeping him company all around the place! :) Yesterday morning I snapped this pick of him right up on the back porch, peeking in at us. :D

Speaking of peeking … I have a sneak peek for you of the fantastic digiscrap kit I just uploaded to my SUN Shoppe! It will be released in the store this coming Saturday, June 12th!

Now isn’t that just yummy?? :D

Blessings & happy scrapping y’all! :D

NEW::Artist Trading Card Templates

I love scrapping in “miniature” and ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) are perfect for that! They also make fantastic hybrid projects as they can be printed out, adhered to cardstock, and made into mini albums that you can carry with you and show off to friends!

TST::ScrapIt ATC #1-4 {template} – Price: $2.25 on sale now for $1.58!!

I had so much fun whipping up this 2-page mini album with my templates & I think I will add 2 more pages with the other templates really soon! After that, I plan to make an accordion album with the printed layouts!

By the way, the SUN birthday celebration is still in full party mode, so be sure to check out all the challenges, sales, & more this weekend!

Just a reminder that my Creative Team Call is still open for a few more days! I am looking for truly *enthusiastic* CT members who will help tell the digiscrap world about my designs! :D


Blessings & happy scrapping y’all! :D
