As You See It Challenge #153

Happy Canada Day to all my northern friends!  Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! 

It's time for another challenge, something about this layout really strikes it with me!  What do you think?   


Did you know that I have 6 nieces?!?!  One just turned 10 this week and she loves bright colors, all things sparkle and bright calls her name.  So this card is actually her birthday card!  


In order to follow the layout I used a framelet and then mirrored it.  This allowed me to create one piece and still have the line through the middle.  How about that glimmer paper?!?  Something about a bit of sparkle just makes this card.  

Don't forget to play along with us this week at AYSI!

As You See It Challenge # 152! 

Welcome to another challenge!  
We don't seem to do a lot of circle layouts but this challenge has a lot of them! 


Inspired by the circle designs I decided to go out on a limb and make a spinner card.  Have you ever made one?  It takes some planning but it's not hard to do. There are several tutorials online that can give you the low down.   Hope you enjoy this twist on the layout!

Here's to hoping that the video works!

AYSI 6/02

It's almost BEACH TIME!  

Okay, who lives for the beach?!?! And my beach I don't mean some pond. I mean THE beach with sun, waves, and sand!  What does your beach look like?  Here are a couple of pictures of 'my' beach that google provided me.  ;) Good 'Ole Grand Haven, Michigan on the shore of Lake Michigan and only about 1/2 hour from my house!  I grew up camping at the start of every summer here and still visit almost weekly in the summer and fall.  


  

Anyway, onto this weeks challenge! 


Don't you love that simple sketch?!  I followed my beach theme and used one of the brand spanking new stamp sets from Stampin' Up!  (Whoot NEW catalog!!!). 


New stamp set, new colors, new embossing folder, new paper!!  'Tis the season!!!  

Make sure you play along with us this week!
