scrappy thursday

I was just looking back on my blog to see what the last projects I posted were and it was awhile ago! So here's to catch you up on what I have been creating.
This was for a sketch challenge on the Crate Paper blog a couple weeks ago.
That hexagon paper seemed like a perfect match to do a soccer page;)
Some close-ups:

I participated in a card kit swap over on the Nook, where we sent someone a kit made from our stash and then they had to make cards with it. This is the lovely kit I received from Brianne:
Full of yummy Pink Paislee Soiree.
I was able to get 3 cards out of this kit, only adding my own sentiment stickers and cardstock:

A couple of cards from challenges on the Nook:
This challenge was to use up scraps, and I used scraps from my April kit.
This was a challenge to be inspired by the posted member card. I soooo love how this card came out:) I used scraps from my March kit for this.
This was based on the 6/6 card sketch. I really love how this came out too! This was my first time playing with product from Pebbles Inc, and I love it! The patterned paper is textured, kinda like Bazzill. Fun stuff!
This was for a challenge to make a card for a family member, so since Father's Day is coming up, I made a card from Kieran to Shaun. This was my first time adding pictures to a card and I like it;) I used the yummy June kit for this.
I have also created some other things with the June kit:
some details:
I really love the colors in the Lily Bee Picket Fence fresh and new to me!
some detailed shots:

I was trying to not use kraft for a page;) This was for the June Sketch Challenge.
Some details:

And finally, I participated in a photo swap challenge on the Nook. I got to swap photos with Kari, one of my pals on and she was on my design team for Kraft Girl Kits. Since she has all girls, I sent her some pictures of K. I really love what she did with them:
I adore that banner she did!!! She made it with fabric scraps. Pretty cool, huh?
I was lucky to get some fall-ish pictures since here in FL we don't get those pretty color changes...And here is what I created with Kari's pictures:
It was such a fun challenge!! I used the new Pebbles Inc. line for this page, soooo pretty!
I do have another card made, but haven't had time to photograph it yet. I received my papers to work with for the Echo Park Fresh Face month and let me tell will NEED Country Drive. Oh do I love it! I have pictures already to go for my projects, just need to pick up some more printer ink to print them out, ha!

Those cards are unbelievable. Have you thought about setting up an etsy shop and selling your handmade cards? I bet you'd make a ton of $$$!

WOW! did I miss this POST? I came back to drool over stitched banners and scrappy goodness.

I am in love with the deep BUT BRIGHT colors and of course those infectiously cute KIDS!
