Pocket Pages

It's Sharon up this week and I want to see pocket pages! I have been trying to incorporate pocket pages into my scrapbooking albums lately. I find them very challenging! I think I just need more practice.

Here is one I did recently featuring one of the pretty castles we visited in Sweden in 2013.


Pretty basic, but I like the balance and coordinating colours. And acetate photo overlays are so much fun.

I can't wait to see what pocket pages the other Party-Ers post this week for inspiration!

Inspiration-- Tropical Blues

It's Sharon this week. I gave the girls this stunning pillow image as inspiration. Seemed like a great way to generate some tropical vibes at this time of year!


I tried to replicate the look with some Hero Arts tropical foliage stamps.


I can't wait to see what the other Party-Ers create this week!

New Stamp


New year new stamp!

Time for another challenge and this week I would like to see those cards using a new stamp set.

I created this card using a Papertrey stamp set I got fairly recently.

I'm looking forward to seeing you break in those new stamp sets and the cards you create with them.

Please link your cards up below.

It's all the rage this year... PLAID!

Hi everyone!  I'm posting my challenge from a few weeks ago... as they say, better late than never!  My challenge was to use plaid in your project.  Plaid is all the rage this year and I used plaid on my tags for Party-er Rosanne's annual tag swap.

Here are my tags...

I'm also loving the old fashioned truck/car theme that is all around this year too!  Link up your Plaid project below... and take a look at what the other Party-ers have come up with!

Poinsettias or Christmas Florals!

It's Sharon and this week I want to see Christmas florals! I love poinsettias (and full disclosure I rarely have luck keeping a real one alive for long!) so I was really excited about two new(ish) things in my stash to play with.

First up is a Clearly Besotted stamp set. I embossed a poinsettia on vellum. Love how that turned out! And gold with a kraft card base just makes me happy! The sentiment is from my go-to PTI set by the lovely Maile Belles. I channeled my "inner Dee" and splatted on a bit of gold mist. :)


Second up uses my new Tim Holtz poinsettia stencil. I tinted some paste with a variety of distress inks. Love how the final result perfectly matched PTI's new pink Lovely Lady! I threw lots of glitter on the paste before it dried. 


I can't wait to see what kind of Christmasy floral goodness the other Party-Ers create this week!

Merry Christmas:

We are back with another Crazy Card Party challenge and this week I would like to see those thank you cards.

I borrowed a stamp set from Regan and coloured up some gnomes to create these fun cards:

I can't wait to see what everyone else has created.
