C4C January Sketch Challenge

Today is a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges.  This week, it's a sketch challenge.



Fun challenge.  I took some creative license with the banners coming from the circle.  They aren't as straight as they were.  haha


Most of the products used for this card are from Elizabeth Craft Designs and are listed below.  The flowers are colored with Copic markers R85, R83 and Y15. The leaves are colored with YG63, G46, and G84.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you join us in the challenge this week!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Valentine's Day Planner Pages

Have you seen the amazing planner products from Elizabeth Craft Designs!!?  Today, some projects are being featured that use these fun products at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  I'm using my planner to help me remember when to send out cards and to whom.  I created this fun double layout for Valentine's Day.


Isn't that pretty?!  On the left side, those tags are the place where I'll keep a list of Valentine's to be sent.  My supply list is below.  Thank you for stopping by.  I sure hope you check out the full post for crafty inspiration from my design team sisters!

Craftily yours,

Happy Birthday

I'm excited to announce that I am part of the design team for Crazy 4 Challenges.  Excited to be part of this incredibly talented group!  Today's challenge:  What is your favourite card type to make? Pop-up? Shaker? Birthday? One Layer? Make one!

My favorite card to make is a birthday card!  (Or a Christmas card, but it's too soon for that!!)  Here's what I made:


It's a super simple card, but I still like how it turned out!  I used products from Elizabeth Craft Designs (links below).  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you join us in the challenge this week!

My Planner

Happy New Year everyone!  I don't keep resolutions, so instead, I'm setting goals.  (LOL, big difference, right?!?)

One of my goals is to actually send out more of the cards that I make.  To help inpire me with this goal, I have used some of the new and fabulous planner products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I'll use my pages as reminders of important dates for sending out cards and to keep track of addresses and what I've sent and such.

Here's my cover page.


Isn't that fun!?  The "dates" is a flap to make it look more like a cover page, and beneath it is my reminders of "to do" - like sending cards and actually mailing them!  I can't wait to add more fun pages.  My supplies are below.  Thanks for stopping by!

Craftily yours,

Karen
