Pemberley - Mojo Monday #234

I didn't get my card made for Mojo Monday this week until yesterday, so I'm a little late. My goal for the future is to get something up each Monday. We'll see how that goes!

Here's this week's sketch. The last week of the month is a little different because the template is normally for a round or square card.

I am used to making 4.25 x 5.5" cards, so this week was a little out of the box for me. But that's good! Here's my take on this week's sketch, using Close to My Heart's Pemberley paper and the Love Clusters stamp set. Enjoy!

Imagine Workshop

Imagine Workshop
  • Sunday, April 29th
  • 1:00-4:00
  • Cost: $35 or $15
Close to My Heart's great how-to books are being discontinued at the end of this catalog, so let's celebrate them while they're still available! In April, June, and July, I will be hosting workshops using the how-to books Imagine, Cherish, and Magic (providing the inventory lasts that long). In April we will be working from the book Imagine. All you have to do is choose the paper packet and complements that you want to work with, and I will order those and the book for you. The cost of $35 is a $7 savings over ordering them separately! If you already own the book, the cost is $15 for the paper packet and complements. All you need to bring is a paper cutter and adhesive; I will supply any necessary alphabet stamps and stamp pads. Payment is due when you sign up. The deadline to sign up is Sunday, April 15th, but there's no guarantee that the books will be around that long, so sign up soon!

Pemberley Birthday Card

My grandmother's birthday is on Sunday, so I decided to use the Mojo Monday sketch from this week again to make a birthday card for her. This time I used the Pemberley paper from Close to My Heart, which is one of my favorites. I also used the Card Word Puzzle and Hooray Bouquet stamp sets for the yellow flowers and birthday sentiment. I really like how it turned out!

Footloose - Mojo Monday #233

For those of you who don't know about Mojo Monday, it's a great website that has a new card design each Monday that you can challenge yourself with. You can link your card to their website and even win prizes for competing!

I've been following this website for quite awhile, but this is the first card that I've actually posted. I think the design is great, and I immediately knew that Close to My Heart would have the right embellishments and paper for this week's challenge.

Here is this week's sketch:

Here's the card that I made using our Footloose paper and complements. I also used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the scalloped edge. It's simple and easy, and that's how I like my cards!

Thanks for looking!

Footloose Workshop on the Go

I love the Footloose paper packet out of the new catalog, and I really love the exclusive stamp set that comes with the Workshop on the Go. That's always the main reason why I buy the kit or not. I just got done making the two layouts that come with the kit, and I really like them!

As usual, I made a few changes to the original designs in order to get a few more pictures on the layouts, but I think they turned out nicely!
