Lawnscaping Challenge #30 - Enjoy Your Day

It's been some time since I participated in Lawnscaping challenges. I bought some Lawn Fawn goodies recently and there's no better time to join in the current challenge.

My card was mainly inspired by 2 crafters. Chari was one of them with her mirror image of the flamingoes and this other card with the Gnome Sweet Gnome set. Vicky also inspired me through her How-to video last Sunday and I just loved the Spring scene she created.

Here is my card:
My sister bought some liquid appliqués for me from Korea. I wanted her to get me the Korean pens but she couldn't find it and bought me an equivalent. She wanted to see the effects so I used it on the gnomes. I thought they were just so cute and their hats and beards were perfect to use appliqué on. Think I'll need to add more of the appliqué to get more poofs with the Korean ones.  I used white appliqué by Marvy for their beards. I also added glaze on their belts.

I'm also submitting this card to the Outlawz CAS March 25th Challenge. The challenge this week is to create a CAS card that uses something warm & fuzzy (Think felt, pompom trim, yarn...)

Supplies Used:
Pattern Paper - Bright Side by Lawn Fawn
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black, London Fog, Ranger Distress Inks Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Stamps - Lawn Fawn Gnome Sweet Gnome, Bannerific, Bon Voyage, Harold's ABCs
Others - Copics, Liquid Applique White by Marvy, Korean Pens, Sakura Glaze Pens, Pop Dots

PTI March 2012 & For Janelle Blog Hop

I was contemplating if I wanted to participate in the blog hop and decided to do it at the very last minute. Being a slow crafter, I barely made it to submission. Anyway the challenge for this month is based on the inspiration photo below:

Here is my take:
I thought the colors look really cheery and spring and thought to base my card on that. The dandelion stamp looks faint as it is 2nd generation stamped. I wanted it to look like it was floating around in the background.

So happens, another blog hop is also taking place. I got to read about it yesterday and it is for Janelle. I don't know her and  didn't know about her until this blog hop and got to read her story. No words can describe what she and her family is going through. I just wanted to send in my encouragement as I do understand to a certain extent. My youngest sister had brain tumor.

I just want to end with a note that God has a plan and a purpose for all of us. I'm touched with Janelle's sharing of Psalms. They truly brought my parents and I comfort and peace during those difficult times. May God bless you, Janelle & Ken as well as your family.

Supplies Used:
Paper - PTI Stamper's Select White, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist
Pattern Paper - Candy Shoppe Collection by Echo Park
Inks - PTI Smokey Shadow, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, New Leaf, JBS Lemon Tart, Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen, Vintage Photo
Stamps - PTI Daydreamer, Simple Sunflowers
Others - PTI Linen IP, Mat Stack 4 Die, Mat Stack 4 Layerz Die, Hero Arts Mixed Accents, AC Crochet Lace, Carribean Twine by The Twinery, 1/4" Scor Tape, Pop Dots

LO - Snow Fun

I've been slowly but surely working on my scrapbooking. I do enjoy it especially the documenting part. I feel that's as important as the photos in my layouts. I only hope with time, I can speed up my process as it's still taking me some time to plan and complete.

I do tend to take more photos and I don't want to be restricted to just using a few photos or have too many photos in a collage that I can't tell the details of each photo. I decided to use photo pockets for the additional photos I like to include.

This layout was inspired by a sketch from Becky Fleck and layouts from Bella Blvd's blog. The style of all my layouts are inspired by Nichol Magouirk. She is one of my favorite scrapbooker.

Supplies Used:
Paper - Echo Park Winter Park Collection, Upscale Essential Collection, Scraps
Stamps - Ali Edwards It's Ok, This One, Get Outside, Real Life
Others - Washi Tape, Ormulu Flairs, MFT Journal Tab Die, Ranger Embossing Powder Black, Zing Embossing Powder White, SC Mr Huey White, Silhouette

Sunday CAS Challenge With Outlawz Mar 11th - Just Thinking Of You

I've been following Stephanie Mino's blog and have seen her takes on the Outlawz Sunday CAS challenges. Decided to check it out and joined Outlawz a few weeks ago. This is my first participation since joining the group.

The challenge for this week:

"One of the flowers most associated with March is the narcissus (Wild Daffodil). Narcissus is also known as Lent Lily because it blooms in early spring and the blooms are usually dropping before Easter. Create any Clean And Simple project that has a floral theme this week!"

I have some PTI goodies not inked up and thought it would be a good time to do so.

Here is my take:

Supplies Used:
Paper - PTI Vintage Cream
Pattern Paper - Blush by My Mind's Eye
Stamps: PTI Framed Out #1, Tag-Its #5, Daydreamer
Ink - JBS Stick Candy, Lavender Sachet, Chicken Feed, PTI Canyon Clay, Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen
Others - PTI Framed Out Die, Hero Arts Mixed Accents, Pop Dots, WRMK 1/2" Corner Chomper
