SoSS #184 - O is for Outdoors

 

Greetings and salutations snarky friends!
Hope all is well and safe in your corner of the planet.

Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers are back at ya with a new challenge, our theme is O is for Outdoors.

Of course, I had zero mojo in advance of the challenge (which started yesterday) but today I had an idea....so better later than never...but alas, no snark...

I did an 8x8 layout of our camping trip to Algonquin Park last October. Yep I am THAT nutbar who likes to camp when it's cold!!

We didn't know then, but that would also be our last outing in our tent trailer as we upgraded to a bigger trailer this spring...hopefully we will get to use it soon!

So that's me sitting by the fire and if you look in the background you can see Kevin and Joel heading off to the bathroom LOL I did not realize that then I took the picture - but it works, then all of us are in the picture LOL


Shite I used to make this layout:
  • Happy Trails design paper (Simple Stories)
  • Happy Trails Combo Cardstock Stickers (Simple Stories)
  • Happy Trails Chipboard Stickers (Simple Stories)
  • Alphabet stickers (Recollections)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along!

Greetings and salutations crafty friends!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH.

Mother's Day is quickly approaching, so we want to see what you are making for Mom (or Mum or Grandma).

I shopped my stash for some long since retired SU design papers that I have been **ahem** collecting.

This is the first time I have used a design paper in an insert card, I kinda like it!



Shite I used to make these cards:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Cricut Joy (to cut and draw images / text)
  • Design paper (SU)
As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along.

SoSS #183 - M is for Monochromatic


Greetings and salutations snarky pals!
Hope all is well and safe in your corner of the world!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.
Our challenge theme this time around is M is for Monochromatic.

I was going for a bit of a wonky look - so I cut strips of white cardstock and layered them strangely across the polka dotted cardstock. It probably would have been easier to cut strips of the polka dot paper and lay them across the card base...but meh...I never do things the easy way...


Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Polka dot cardstock (Recollections)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Say It How It Is stamp set (Dylusions)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.
