Dreaming of Kids

... mmmm not really.

But I did want to direct your attention to Sketch Support this week!  We have some very special Guest Designers joining us. It's Kid Week! I love it that we can include children in this wonderful hobby and some of the DT (the one's with children) are sharing some fun layouts by their kiddos along with some pretty adorable interview questions.

Can you believe it's the end of March already??? I am happy for a few reasons.  Longer daylight. Weather is slowly warming up. It's closer to July and my trip to Chicago. It's almost a new month which means kit reveals, new magazine reveals and all sorts of fun things!

It also means deadlines for me which I finally got caught up to the other night. And then it starts all over again but when I catch up it means I get to play some more and use up scraps from things. So you know those journal cards/spots that come with a lot of lines? I don't always use those on my layouts and then they sit around in my stash forever because I usually forget I have them. Then I think, what in the world am I going to do with these?? And the DUH bell rang in my head - use it on a card!

I had a leftover journal card from The Classics line by American Crafts. The border of it worked way too perfect as a card border.  So I cut a base out of cardstock so it would measuer 8" x 6".  Folded in half it would measure the same dimensions as the journal card which is 4" x 6".

Supplies: Cardstock: The Paper Company, Journal Spots, Tag, Rub-on: American Crafts, Flowers: Prima Marketing, Bling: EK Success, Other: ribbon

I used another journal spot on top and tied the ribbon around it; added flowers and topped it off with the tag from Bits. I love how you can just cut off the top of the tag so it becomes a cute little title card. The sentiment was just asking to be on a card.

So how is your Wednesday going?
