It's planNERD Sunday!

Hi, everyone!  It's time for my next installment of planNERD Sunday at Timeless Twine!  Today I'm going to share with you my April cover and month-at-a-glance pages, as well as my pages for this week, and I will include links to all of the Bella Creationz and Timeless Twine supplies at the end of my post.

I started out this month by edging my monthly divider with some Key Lime Sorbet twine from Timeless Twine, outlining the Mason jar with the same twine, and adding some sequins to the jar, flowers, and the dot on the 'i.'

For my month-at-a-glance page, I used planNERD and *NEW* Church Plans stamp sets to include things I already knew were going on this month.  I really LOVE the new Church Plans set!  There are so many great images and words to choose from.

 I decided to go with a travel theme for this week and added some washi tape to the bottom of each page and a travel-themed washi tape across one of the dividers (to cover up labels I didn't want).  I added the "Hydrate" stamp from the planNERD set on each day, as I'm REALLY trying to lose weight and keep up with my water intake.  Then, I added small hearts (also from the planNERD set) I could check off for a to-do list and any other extras going on.  I included the "Project" stamp from the planNERD 2 set on Sunday, so I made sure I would check things off for my blog post when they're finished, then finished up the week by including some "Happy Anniversary" and love stamps from the Happy Days and Oh,Snap! stamp sets, since Wednesday is my tenth wedding anniversary.

Tag It with Flowers!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It's Tag It Tuesday at Timeless Twine, and this month is all about spring and the Sorbet Collection of twine, so I decided to make some cute flower tags.

I cut the flowers using my Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More Cricut cartridge.  The small flowers are cut at 3", the large pink and green flowers are cut at 4", and the large blue flower is cut at 3 1/2".  I added adhesive around the edges, then simply wound the twine around four times on the larger flowers and three times on the smaller ones.  I stamped the flower in the center of each one with an image from the "Oh, Snap!" set from Bella Creationz, then added glitter and Stickles (in Fruit Punch and Lime Green) for something extra.  I'm also entering these in PaperCrafter'sCorner.com's Magazine Mondays Week 94 challenge.  My inspiration for these from the magazine inspiration is that planting flowers is part of sprucing up for spring!

Stick It Down April reveal

Happy April Fool's Day, everyone!  If someone's played a trick on you today, I hope it was all in fun and that you took it in stride.  My husband and I don't usually play tricks on each other on April Fool's Day, so nothing major to worry about in our house. :-)

It's also time for the April sketch reveals at Stick It Down!  Here is the card sketch for this month:

I rotated the sketch to use it for a horizontal card and decided on a Christmas card.  If you're a regular visitor to my blog, you've probably seen a few Christmas cards lately.  Last year I had Christmas cards made to send out to most of my Christmas list but failed MISERABLY on getting that done, I think mainly because I was going to have to make MORE cards and just didn't find the time.  I have vowed to have MORE than enough Christmas cards made for THIS year, so I'm trying to get a couple done each month.  I thought this sketch lent itself quite well to a Christmas card.

Supplies Used

I hope you'll play along with one of our sketches this month!  Remember, you have the entire month to play along at Stick It Down, so be sure to hop over there and link up your project.  We can't WAIT to see what you create with our sketches!  Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping!

Create A Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Create A Card Blog Hop!

We are so happy you could join us today.  This is a one day blog hop, but don't worry; you have until Monday to stop by all the blogs and leave a comment to be entered into the drawing for the wonderful prize we have for you today.

Catherine Pooler, founder of Stamp Nation and Creativity Grows Here, has generously donated a trial membership to Stamp Nation to us to give away to those who hop along with us.

To be entered in the drawing, just comment and follow each of the blogs on the hop today.  That's it; it's just that easy!  Prizes will be drawn and announced on Theresa's blog on Wednesday, April 1.

If you started at the beginning of the hop, you should have arrived here from Alicia.  Now, on with the projects!

The card I'm sharing with you today is one I made last weekend for a birthday party for my youngest son's best friend.  He was having a construction-themed birthday party, so I turned to Pinterest to see what construction-themed cards I could recreate, and this is the finished product:

I colored the digi image with Crayola colored pencils then mounted it to white cardstock using Sticky Doos foam adhesive from The Paper Studio.  I thought it needed a little bling (even if it was for a boy!), so I added some yellow rhinestones for the front lights.  The sentiment is from the spinner2stamp set from The {Stamps} of Life, and the Twill Herringbone embossing folder is from Teresa Collins.  

Please be sure to hop over to all the other wonderful blogs, too.  Here is the entire line-up:

Ashley <= YOU ARE HERE!
Pamela <= GO HERE NEXT!

Your next stop is Pamela!  Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping!

Yellow, My Friend!

Happy Monday!  It's Monochrome Monday over at Timeless Twine, and I thought that since I don't use yellow very much that I'd pull out some of my yellow stuff to come up with a bright and cheerful card.  I used this sketch from the current challenge at the C.A.S. Clean & Simple Colours & Sketches blog:

and created this:

I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
