A fun hop in June...

I am excited to share that I will be guest designing in June for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog!
As you probably have guessed, the CKCB is one of my favorite challenges.  Whenever I scrap, it is usually with the fun kits that I have created based on the current inspiration kit.

A Bonus Kit and a Layout!

It's no secret that I just love Bethany from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  I keep trying to convince her to move to Maine, but that hasn't happened yet.  Maybe I will have to relocate to the Midwest. ;)

When she messaged me to do a bonus kit with her based on one of the challenges from CSI: Color Story Inspiration, I jumped at the chance.  I love to make my own kits, and sometimes I even use them, LOL!

This is the Case File that we were inspired by:
Here is the kit that I made:
I used a PageMaps sketch to create this layout:

Cloud/stitching detail:

I still have quite a bit left in my kit to create a couple of cards, too.  Those little owl stamps are just too cute not to use today!  (They were also a gift from Bethany, sweet girl!)  They are part of a Christmas stamp set, but as you can see, they aren't Christmas-y at all!  I think they will be adorable on cards. :)

Thanks for looking!  Happy NSD!

Echo Park NSD Challenge #1

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

I am having SO MUCH FUN doing nothing but scrapping today!  In my jammies, to boot! LOL  I am also very grateful that we have not had any company today.  If the doorbell rings, I will pretend I am not home. :)

I have been playing along with a few challenges today.  There is so much happening online today!  The first project that I am sharing is a card for Echo Park's first challenge of the day: make a summertime card.

At first, I didn't think I could play along because although I have quite a bit of Echo Park product, none of it was really summer-themed.  Then I remembered that I have the entire digital Hello Summer collection!  I always forget my digi stuff because it's not right in front of me. :)  Here's what I came up with:

I printed the window box twice on white cardstock, then fussy-cut the flowers and layered them.  I also paper-pieced the window frame and awning.  The awning paper and background are both from Echo Park's Walk in the Park collection.  The little "Thanks a Bunch" sticker is from the Country Drive collection.

Thanks for popping by today.  I have a kit and layout to post in a bit, then it's back up to the scrap room to play some more. :)
