Sketch n Scrap Layout Challenge

This year I want to participate in more blog challenges- with that in mind and a few hours the other day I set out to find some and came across the Sketch n Scrap page– they have a layout and card challenge! I liked what I saw so decided to play along!

Here is my page- the paper is from the Confetti Wishes paper pack.  I added gold sequins and some purple glitter gems left over from an old workshop kit. My title comes from the CTMH cricut Artbooking (the title says endless summer and I just cut off the endless part). I love how it documents our year-end staff party (which is an Amazing Race theme and SO MUCH FUN!)

Guest Designer on Atlantic Hearts

I was honoured to be asked to be a Guest Designer for a Sketch on the Atlantic Hearts Blog.  I received the above sketch and immediately knew I wanted to adapt this sketch to use with the new Artfully Sent cartridge from CTMH!

Here is what I came up with:

For this card I used one of the swing card cuts on the Artfully Sent- a birthday one. I added some Confetti Wishes paper and accented the cuts with paper, markers and shimmer trim (always need to add shimmer trim!)

The inside also got a bit of fun- I cut out the Happy Birthday from another piece of paper in the Confetti Wishes set.

I would love to see what you create with this sketch.  Feel free to post your finished projects in my comments!

Papercrafting Party Supplies

birthday supplies

So I have a confession to make?

I am a bit of a ‘party mama’ – I love to decorate and match things for a party, especially when it means I can paper craft my party supplies! My daughter turns 3 this month and I have SO MUCH cute stuff planned for that! For now you will have to be satisfied with a set of birthday items that you could easily create for a party in your family- birthday, baby shower, wedding shower…. the possibilities are endless!

birthday kit candy tube

These are our treat tubes- perfect for the thank you favour or birthday party take-away.  Fill with a candy {I would have preferred something in a colour that matched but don’t keep much candy in the house) add some washi tape and a banner AND voila!

birthday kit card

Any party needs a matching invite OR a matching thank you card… I pulled through the colour scheme (especially the purple) to make this card.  The paper used is from our Confetti Wishes paper.

A cupcake box (oh YES!!) and another treat bag.  You can mix these and use whatever items you like. Cupcakes make cute gifts for someone special- even more special when they come in cute packaging!

The treat bag can be tied off as in this picture or left open and folded at the top. I give our cookies every year as our party favour (my sister in law makes the best cookies) and they fit perfectly in these bags! Both have elements from the Confetti Wishes paper collection and some more purple elements.

Confetti Wishes

Confetti Wishes is a bright, colourful and beautiful paper just bursting with life!  This layout comes from the Workshop on the Go for this paper- it is the layout that my club ladies will be creating when we do this kit.

Have you ever tried our Workshop on the Go kits? They changed slightly in this new book – now they all feature cuts using our cricut cartridges (although they also show you how you can create the layout not using the cartridges).

Of course these papers are perfect for birthday photos they are also useful for a lot of other memories- I used mine for the Wishmaker walk photos from last fall. We do this every year as a family as a way to give back for the wonderful wish trip that my son had when he was four (they do an AMAZING job of their trips!).
