Mojo Monday 286 - Tommy

For this week's Mojo Monday card I decided to use the new Tommy paper packet from Close To My Heart. Although this paper packet did not initially excite me, I've grown to like it as I use it more. And since there are two different patterns on each piece of paper, it's actually pretty versatile!

I also used some of the canvas stickers from the Tommy Complements Canvas Shapes.

So here's this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

And here's my card!

I really like how it turned out, and this sketch was really easy to use. I think it would also work well with a traditional-size card instead of the round or square version too.

Thanks for looking!

Mojo 285 - Buzz and Bumble (again!)

For someone who did not initially like the Buzz and Bumble paper packet, I sure have been using it a lot! I used it on a scrapbooking layout yesterday that hopefully I will complete and share with you sometime in the next few days. And I've been creating lots of cards with this paper packet and the Quick Cards - Bumble Bee stamp set. For only $6.95, it's a great deal!

But on to this week's Mojo Monday card! Here's the sketch for this week:

It's a little more cutting and paper piecing than I normally do for a card, but I took it as a challenge this week! And here's what I came up with:

As mentioned above, I used the Buzz and Bumble paper packet and the Quick Cards - Bumble Bee stamp set. I also used Creme Brulee and Colonial White cardstock and some of our great new Slate Polka-Dot Washi tape.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a great day!

Love Studio J!

From February 1st to March 15th, all Studio J layouts were only $5.00 each! So of course, I waited until the very last day to complete mine, but here are a few of the ones I just completed. I decided to scrapbook our recent Disney trip with Studio J so it wouldn't take me years to get it in an album!

Thanks for taking a look! And if you'd like more information on how to use Studio J to make your own great scrapbooking pages, just let me know!

Mojo Monday 283 - Buzz and Bumble

I really liked the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, so I was excited to make this card. I really like simple and easy cards and this sketch would be simple to adapt for almost any type of card. Here's the sketch for this week:

Since I hadn't used all of our new paper packets yet, I decided to try Buzz and Bumble this week. It wasn't originally one of my favorites, but I'm starting to realize its versatility, and it's really quite pretty.

So here's my card for this week:

I normally don't do a lot of hand-stitching, but I decided to use some of our embroidery floss and stitch around the outside of the card. I used the Kudos stamp set from the Artiste Cricut collection and finished it off with some Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems.

Thanks for stopping by!
