Authentique and Unity Stamps

Hello and Welcome to my blog today.

To get the creativity sparkle started this week I needed some help from Authentique Paper which started a monthly  sketch challenge this month.  I am really looking forward to designing for Authentique each month for the challenges. 

 Love Love the quality of the paper collections.






Check it out....


This is the card sketch challenge.

Today I managed to create a card for Mother's Day. 
Yes you are seeing correctly, Mother's Day.  I skipped Easter designing this year.

The collection that I am featuring today is the Flourish Collection. 
This collection I believe may be retired. 
Just visit the website and check out all that is new and available here

On the inside I used a panel from the Flourish Collection.

Please visit Authentique and join in the fun of the sketch challenges.
 I hope to find some photo's that I would like to use to design a  layout from this sketch below.
 Here is what the layout sketch looks like.

Amazing Travel Adventures

Hello and Welcome to my blog today....

To-day I would like to share a layout that I designed from inspiration of several challenge blogs within the scrapbooking industry.

I enjoy supporting challenge blogs as they bring motivation and goal focused clarity 
when creating a layout.  I like to thank all those who organize and provide challenges to help motivate designers within our industry.

I am designing this layout featuring Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard.  Check out their blog for additional photo's of this layout, my post should go live on March 15th.


This layout features 4 pieces of Southern Ridge chipboard.


I also want to participate in the follow challenge blogs.


My creative Sketches has wonderful sketches and a great community which I encourage all to participate.  Here is the February sketch.

Next up is a challenge blog called Scrap Our Stash.  The March challenge is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.



I choose the center row vertically for this challenge.

Striped paper    GOLD    Flair

This challenge blog is a great motivator to dig deep into your stash!


My last motivational challenge blog is called Picture This.  




Picture This Challenge Blog has a great March mood board this month.


I got my inspiration for my layout from the Lady with the black/white spotted blouse in the mood board.  The gold and black dots also were inspiration for my designed layout.

Here is a close up of part of my layout, so be sure to visit Southern Ridge Trading Company on Wed., March 15th for all the extra photo's.
