I've been Tagged!!

Oh, and I've been tagged by Maisymary and Kandis Smith sooo here we go... I have to tell you 5-10 ways to come up with things to put on my blog. I've been thinking...

1.) Anything and everything that I make. I just like to see how people react to my creations.

2.) Creative websites like CPS, Caardvark, Daring Cardmakers and Di Hickman help keep the mojo juice flowing!

3.) Inspirational tips, ideas and challenges!

4.) I make my own sketches for cards and Layouts. I post these sometimes three times a week.

5.) I have several BLOGS that I love looking at to also get any kind of idea!

That's all I could come up with! I'm going to tag... Tam, Tessa, Tracey and Emeyl! Have fun!

New 6x12 or 12x6 LO Sketches

Has anyone been struck with a crazy urge to try the new "6 x 12" or '12 x 6" size in scrapping?

Link below for Becky Fleck's page maps - she's done some sketches, in this size, calling them halfmaps

So, who's having a go then?

IDEA TIP: Heard of one person sewing straight down the center of a 12 x 12 page protector to create two pockets for 6 x 12 layouts. Sounds kinda cool!

Tomorrow I will have my first sketch for this size. You can easily turn them to make them fit either a Vertical or Horizontal! Happy Scrappin'!!


I made this super fabulous card for May Card Challenge #1 using transparency on a card! I made my card out of transparency with a touch of pp! Thanks for looking! Supplies used: Magic Scraps Transparency, Colorbok pp, Zig Pen, Miss Elizabeth White Letter Stickers, Prima, SEI Rhinestone Brad

Fun way to use Business Cards

Whatever will you do with the business cards you have left over when you move on?

The quality of the cardstock is great so why not use them on scrapbook pages or cards? The backside of every card is a mini canvas ready to be embellished. Collage them with tiny bits of theme paper, put brads on them, alphabet letters (any type), set eyelets on them, or garnish them with string fibers, or ribbon. Hang charms from the eyelets with little jump rings.

Line up your business cards masterpieces along one side of your layout for a fun border. Use them to set up a color blocked area of your layout. Use one per page or cover an entire page with them. Lift them up with pop dots for that extra dimension. Cut a photo to size and mount or mat it with a business card.

This is only just scratching the surface. I'm sure you could think of a million more uses. Hope this gives you a push to try them out!
