ABC Summer Crop at My Sketch World

This is the third year I have taken part in this ABC crop over at My Sketch World and so far we have been given A and B.
A is a layout and we had the chose of a list of things beginning with the letter A.  I chose to use three of the letters on my page : August, Arrow and Animal.
This challenge gave me incentive to create another page for my album about my mother.
Here is my page:


Now today the letter B  is for Bling.  We are asked to create a card with some bling.  I went to my flower stash and straight away spotted the flower I have used because it was ready made with some bling.

Sketch-a-thon at My Sketchworld

I have not added anything to this blog since last year so I thought I would share the papercrafts I have been doing this month.
I have taken part in a Sketch-a-thon over at My Sketchworld to celebrate their 7th year.
We were given a new sketch each day for 20 days.  I have completed all the 20 pages or cards before the deadline we were given - 2nd March so I am pleased with what I achieved.  The main thing I am ever so pleased with is that this sketch-a-thon inspired me to start an album about my mother with mostly her photos from her older albums. It has been so enjoyable and I am pleased with the pages I have created.
We were given card sketches as well as page sketches. All of my pages are 8 x 8 inches in size which worked very well with the small  old  style photos.

I will now share my 20 results. Starting with Sketch #1 and ending with #20:

Week 2 Christmas in July challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

This week we are asked to make a pop-up style card for a child.
I used my KNK Maxx machine and a great set of SVG files from Sugar Gem Crafts to  make my card and I did have fun making this card. I usually am hesitant to make construction type cards but with this great file from Sugar Gem and my great cutting machine it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.
