Hiking trip

Steve had been planning this hiking trip for a long time and the week before he left he got out the food hydrator and made some beef jerky, dried pineapples and bananas to take with him.
I used the September Take 10 kit from The Studio 29 designs I got my inspiration for the dream card from this tutorial by Technique Tuesday. I just love the colors in this months kit. With the seasons starting to change its nice to have new color pallets to work with

 
This is the September kit and you get it all for 10.00. Membership is required but you can opt out any months that you want.

Labor Day 2014

We had made a trip back home for my Niece's wedding so we spent Labor Day in Bellevue. Bob made the best BBQ Ribs and corn on the cob for dinner and Sara and Scott came over to eat as well!
I am using the Labor Day cards from Studio 29 Designs and they are still in shop and free! I also used the On the Corner stamp and die from Neat and Tangled and some stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday. I used lots of labels to tell my story with. We used Steve's cell phone to take these pictures and unfortunately didn't realize that the resolution was set really low. So there not the best pictures but I'm using them anyway.

Unscripted Sketch Challenge #1

I really cant remember the last time I played along with a Sketch challenge or any kind of challenge. Sketches are definitely a great way to get some inspiration going. On Treasa's Instagram page I came across a new site called Unscripted Sketches and it was their first challenge, and this pocket card is my take on the sketch. The cards I used are from the September Take 10 kit and I used the Going Places stamp from Technique Tuesday
 
Then I incorporated my 3x4 card onto a 4x6 card
 
This is the sketch

Week 33 - Project Life Planner

This week I met my friend Michele for dinner and she gave me a wonderful bag of Squirrel flair and she made me a Squirrel card. I scanned in the card and shrunk it down to 3x4 so that I could put it in a pocket to use in my scrapbooking. The Insta stitching is from a WeR Memory Keepers stencil and the heart is from a Amy Tangerine stencil. Michele also brought her new Instax camera with her and took the picture of Me that's on the 4x6 card. It is such a cute camera and I love the mini polaroid picture.....might have to put this on my "I need' list!

 
This is the card shrunk down and I left an edge on the left hand side of the front of the card and folded it over and then attached the inside of the card to that flap and it worked great!

Bike Ride

A bike ride we took in Duck Creek. There were so many Ducks along the whole trail and of course they all wanted to be fed. Good thing we took almost a whole loaf of bread! The 3x4 cards are from Everyday Rituals and the 4x6 cards are from the Aqua Edition. I used an Amy Tangerine stencil for the stitching and the stamps are from Technique Tuesday

Using up left over pocket cards from the May Take 10 kit. The polaroid stamp was also from the May kit but it was an add on item. The stitched house is a template from Amy Tangerine
