Another Sketch Challenge

I love using sketches. They are a great starting point and often get my creative mind going when I am feeling stumped. For this week I have chosen another great sketch from MojoMonday to use as our Creative Challenge.

When I look at this sketch I see so many possibilities. Cards, scrapbook layout and even a mini album cover. The Create With Birdsnest Creative Challenge #7 is to use this sketch in any way you like to design this week’s project. Each of you will likely interpret it differently which makes seeing all of your creations so much fun!!

Scrapbook Layouts, Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop

Scrapbooking Global June 2020 Blog Hop

Hello and welcome. Today I am pleased to share with you my scrapbook design for the June 2020 Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! blog hop. The theme for June is “Brand New” chosen by the lovely & talented Designer Sharon Dalton of Studio Shabaz.

I am so excited about the theme Sharon has chosen and to be a part of this month’s hop! The last time I was part of this great blog hop was back in May 2019 … way too long ago!

With the release of the “brand new” Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue I had so many options to choose from for my layout.

After giving it some thought I decided to use the Playful Pets Suite. By far one of the cutest suites in this catalogue and with a fur-legged friend in our house these products worked perfectly. I can certainly see myself using these fabulous products over and over as they are just adorable!

Here is my “Brand New” layout design …

Now isn’t this Suite just perfect!! I had so much fun creating this layout to showcase our loyal buddy Duke. He is the best dog a family could ever ask for and he really does make our world a better place.

I have incorporated almost all of the products from the Suite into this single page layout.

Just look at those fun patterns from the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper pack. They are absolutely fantastic for all of us pet lovers … the Designer Series Paper pack is split half dog themed and half cat!! And how about that cute little silver heart trinket? Adorable!

I love that the Designer Series Paper has these perfect little puppy images that can be fussy cut and used as super fun embellishments. The little Terrier can even be cut using the framelit from the Pets Dies. So simple!!

If you have fallen in love with these products as I have be sure to check them out on my online store and order using June’s Host Code 36A6B9ZA.

I hope that you enjoyed my take on the “Brand New” blog hop theme and that you feel inspired to do a little scrapbooking of your own.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Be sure to check out all of the other amazing creations in this month’s blog hop. Up next is the fabulous Janice Thomson.

Next blog hop participant

Have a fantastic day!! Take care, stay safe and be creative!!

Cards

Zany Zebras

Hello and welcome! I am so happy to have had some time to play with my new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue… especially these Zany Zebras!

Tell me you aren’t smiling about how super cute these little guys are!! With this stamp set you can create fun birthday cards very easily. Today I have three to share with you!

Here are my Zany Zebras creations

Zany Zebra Birthday Card

This card uses all three of the zebra images. Each of them is stamped in a 1.5″ square and matted together to look like a photo booth print. I added the different colours with the use of my Watercolor Pencils and had some fun matching the Zebras to the patterned paper. After all who says a Zebra can’t have different coloured stripes?!?

The Designer Series Paper that I used on all three of these cards is from the Playing With Patterns 6″x6″ pack. The patterns, colours and design of these papers just seem so perfect for birthday cards.

Secondly I made this card showing the zebras wearing the adorable little party hats!! Using a combination of three sentiment stamps I created a great birthday message on the front of the card. These Zebras are ready to party and send some birthday wishes to your loved ones! These little guys are coloured in using my Stampin’ Blends and this time I stayed a little more traditional with the colour.

The last card I created to share with you came together seamlessly. Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Crushed Curry make a great colour combination! I used the Tasteful Labels dies and dimensionals to layer up the Birthday Greeting. Stamped the sole Zany Zebra in Night of Navy and centered the whole thing atop of the playful DSP.

I had a blast designing these cards and can not wait to send them to family and friends!
