Stinkin' Inkers April Challenge

The theme for the April Challenge at Stinkin' Inkers is Simply Made.  We want to see projects that are simple with not a lot of "fluff" or projects that are only one layer.  I think of a "Simply Made" project as something like a clean and simple card.  My project is a card that I only used one stamp set to create.



I left the inside of this card blank so it could be personalized for whatever occasion I needed, but my initial thought was that it would be a belated birthday card.


You have until 7 pm on Friday, April 27 to get your Simply Made project linked up on the Stinkin' Inkers blog, and there is a limit of three entries per person.  Head over to the blog, too, to see some inspiration from the Design Team.  We can't wait to see your projects!  Happy scrapping, everyone!

Stinkin' Inkers March Challenge

The theme for the March Challenge at Stinkin' Inkers is Wishy Washi.  Simple!  We want you to use washi tape on your project.  I'm a big planner freak, so I thought I would share with you how I decorate my planner using washi tape!


I love using washi tape on my planner, because I think it makes it fun and more attractive to look at.  You can see how by using just a few different washis that I made my March monthly page look so fun!


You have until 7 pm on Friday, March 30 to get your Wishy Washi project linked up on the Stinkin' Inkers blog, and there is a limit of three entries per person.  Head over to the blog, too, to see some inspiration from the Design Team.  We can't wait to see your projects!  Happy scrapping, everyone!

We love bacon and eggs at our house, so this will be perfect for him!

Today I'm sharing with you a card I made this year for a Christmas in July challenge.  I LOVE the stamp, which I got from Deep Red Stamps.  The edges of the scallop hang over the card just a little bit, but I still really love the look of this card.

Stinkin' Inkers December Challenge

The theme for the December Challenge at Stinkin' Inkers is Christmas Joys.  We want you to create a project showcasing anything that celebrates the holiday.  I thought I would share with you one of the non-traditional Christmas cards I made this year.


I really LOVE the way this turned out and how well the colors go together!  They're not typical colors for a Christmas card, and I think that's what makes it so much fun.

You have until 7 pm on Friday, December 29 to get your Christmas Joys project linked up on the Stinkin' Inkers blog.  Head over to the blog, too, to see some inspiration from the Design Team.  We can't wait to see your projects!  Happy scrapping, everyone!

I have two separate Thank You cards to show you today.  I made these as part of a card collection which was donated to our local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Silent Auction this year, which benefited our program allowing us to continue to advocate in the court system for abused and neglected children in foster care. 



The lady who purchased the card collection was absolutely in LOVE with the cards!  I was so happy!!!

Now please hop on over to Alicia next!  Here's our lineup in case you get lost along the way:
