Best fishes

Hi everyone! Happy April Fools Day, lol! I get a big charge out of this day every year even though I rarely play jokes on anybody anymore! A new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #120 – Male Call! We are being sponsored this month by Bugaboo Digi Stamps so be sure to come over and play – we’d love to see your masculine project! I created a masculine birthday card for an avid fisherman somewhere using the Boy Fishing  Digi Stamp. This image is so super adorable!


I dug into my stash of masculine 6×6 papers and created a background with two of them and layered the image on a third. I used graduating sizes of stitched rectangle dies and stamped a ‘best wishes’ type sentiment which I also cut with a stitched rectangle die.


I decorated the inside with a couple leftover strips of cardstock and paper from the front, and stamped another sentiment.


And one more look… so cute! I just love these greens! And can you believe NO embellishments?!

Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up thick and regular Whisper White cardstock, Stampin’ Up Garden Green cardstock, Crafter’s Companion Just For Men Brights Collection 6×6 paper pad

Hello, crafty peeps! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Your Scrapbook Place and I’m happy to share my GD inspiration project for the December with Christina Hor challenge using the Christina Hor ‘Coral Life’ image. This is my last guest design project for Your Scrapbook Place, and I’d like to thank Holley and the rest of the gang for having me along for the past several months! I’ve had a blast!


This is a fantastic image and as soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew what kind of card I wanted to create. One with an aperture to view the image through. :)


I cut a rectangle with rounded corners through the front of the card base and then a slightly larger one through the patterned paper, lined them up and trimmed the edges. I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner.


I lined the colored image up with the aperture and affixed it to the inside of the card. I’m really tickled with how this turned out. So simple but yet packs a great punch!
