Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #26: Announcing ...

Hello and welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  The sketch for this week is a fun one.

Here is what I created with it:

This little guy is my friend's nephew.  Isn't he just adorable?  I used Babycakes paper packet and Stickese, as well as some Chocolate Baker's Twine, and ink.  The Sparkle Flourish was clear, but I coloured it with a Sharpie.  The word is stamped with the Trinity alphabet.  Here's a close up of the bottom:

Now, create your own piece of artwork using this week's sketch.  Be sure to link it up here and say in your post that I sent you!

Happy Creating!

Cross Canada Hop: It's All About the Bling!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!  I'm typing this up just after arriving home from visiting with family.  Our first turkey dinner is sitting quite comfortably in my belly. :)

Welcome to our October Blog Hop featuring the NEW Base and Bling line. If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada, you can pop on over to Michelle's blog and start at the beginning. If you came from Michelle's blog, then you are in the right place!

Here is my project:

As soon as I saw the Base and Bling introduced at convention in June, I knew I had to make a blue (her absolute favourite colour!) hair clip for my daughter.  She loved it!  I used the Sparkle & Shine and Sarita textiles as well as a floral accent.  I popped the clear sparkle out of the flower and substituted a sparkle leftover from the necklace kit.

The flowers are made of circles, cut at various sizes and then folded in half twice.  Each layer has four circles.  I used the Base and Bling adhesive.  Boy, that stuff is fantastic!

Arianna is now asking for another one!  Better get busy.

Now, hop on over to Sheri's blog and check out what she's created.   If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, as she has the complete blog list.

Join us again on November 15 when we will be featuring the projects from the new Mini Holiday Gift Guide.  Happy Creating!

Hello and welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  This week's sketch is so fun and has lots of potential.  Here's the sketch:

Are your creative wheels turning?  Here is my card:

The Babycakes paper was perfect for this sketch.  This card is actually going in my Creative Card Club set for this month. Here's a close up of the embellishment cluster.  The flowers and ticket were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  

I hope you'll join us this week.  You can create any kind of project using this sketch.  Don't forget to link it up here and you could earn a top three award!
