Cupcake Celebrations

Hello Everyone,
I just love the sketch from Mojo Monday so much that I had to make another card. And this time everything on this card comes from my long lost bottom of the pile stash. You know that place where stuff goes and you don’t see it so you don’t use it. Well, I got sick of having all of this stuff that I had purchased but haven’t used yet. And this is the card that I made using the sketch.

Here is also the Mojo Monday #519 for you to look at.

This sketch is so much fun to play along with. I know that it won’t be the last time that I use this one. I didn’t do anything this time with the stars because I just couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash – yes I know I was shocked as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I hope that you will stop by another time; please consider leaving a like or/and a comment I really appreciate those. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Moon Monsters?

Hello Everyone,
The card today is inspired by a card challenge and a world event. When I saw this sketch from Mojo Monday #519

I was watching a TV Documentary called “Chasing The Moon” about the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing. The round element and the stars started the creation of this card.

The wonderful cute monsters are from the set “Out of this World” by Uniquely Creative. I had them already sitting in my coloured image pile and knew that they were what this card needed to finish it off. These images were coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I embossed the background with a star folder from Craft Concepts. The papers used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “Stargazer”, I think that I will be getting a 2nd pack of this paper pack I love using it.

I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. Please consider leaving a comment or a like before you go. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Now before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.

10 Cards from Odds and Ends

Card Set.jpg

Hello everyone, today I am bringing you 10 cards that came out of my Odds and Ends drawer.

This is the drawer that I have put cutoffs of various sizes over the years. When I shifted my craft space to a bigger area I remembered this drawer and instead of dumping its contents I decided to start making cards out of its contents. Otherwise I was going to dump the contents in the bin.

To make things a little easier on myself I decided to use card sketches to make this set. Below I am going to share both the sketch and card together. I have worked out the sketches for metric measurements instead of imperial because that is the measurements that we use in Australia.

MOJO 361.jpg

Mojo Monday 361 was first publish in September 2014
Both of these cards started with their smallest element. I thought the Dog and the Life parts of other pages were too cute not to make them a main element on a card.

Thanks for sticking with this post if you made it this far. It was so good to make some cards from stuff that I had just kept for some reason. And to make so many from the same sort of paper – had a lot of fun! And before you go I would love to leave you with this final thought:

This is definitely me! I seem to have been this way all of my life. I used to train in the rain when I was younger. I am so more active on days of rainy weather. But I do like to see the sun after a while – but hate the steamy weather that can follow rain!!

Have a Happy Crafty Rainy Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
