"Hope You're Better Soon" Card

A simple "Get well soon" card for a friend.
My inspiration for this card came from my friend Karen who made a similar card with little bandaid stamps.
I don't think that particular card is on her blog, but you can check out her other great creations {here}!

Explore {Amethyst 5}

 Here is the sketch for Amethyst 5 by Kristy Lee for Scrapbook Steals.

I have been wanting to try out several "new" products and techniques that I've seen around. I decided to just go for it and I tried a bunch of them all on one page! It was a lot of fun!

I used quite a few stamps on this page (something I have been a little afraid to try on a layout!) I also used washi tape for the first time. I am usually not a huge fan of chevron stripes, but I really don't mind them in this Amy Tangerine kit.

Doily Stamp Card

This card started off pretty similar (almost identical!) to the one in my last post, but ended up looking quite a bit different!

Girly Easter Card

Here is an Easter card I made this week.
 I used some stamps with black ink and then used my watercolour pencils to add colour to them. I fussy cut them out and used foam squares to pop them up. The background stamp is stamped with watermark ink and the sun is also watercoloured.

Cards {MCM 75}

Here are some cards I made this week using Echo Park's This & That - Charming 6x6 pad.

Here is Kristy Lee's sketch for Scrapbook Steals' MCM #75

Here is my card

And one more card made with the same collection.

This is a birthday card made with Stampin' Up! product. I am loving their stamps and inks, and that all the embellishments match perfectly!

Scrapbook Retreat (& Amethyst 2)

I was able to go to a great scrapbooking retreat this past weekend with my mom and a group of awesome ladies that I have met a few times before.
We had a lot of fun over the three days we were together, and got a lot of scrapping done! (Although I didn't get anywhere near the 22 pages that one friend finished!)
Here are three of the pages I did. I'll post another three tomorrow, and the last one when I get it finished!
 I will probably add some journalling to this page, but I can't decide where. The first picture is our family pic from '96, then we re-created it in 2011- second pic (that would be why my dad is holding my "little" brother!) And the bottom pic is the "real" family picture from 2011 :)

Here is Kristy Lee's sketch for Amethyst 2 for Scrapbook Steals

Link With Love Blog Hop {Giveaway Closed}

Thanks for playing along! This giveaway is now closed!
***If you came here from Carolina's blog, you are on the right track. If not, please go to Practical Scrappers for the hop instructions and start from there!***

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers "Linking with Love" Blog Hop!  We believe it is important to always give credit when it is due to another crafter.  For this unique hop all of our design team members used the same inspiration piece to create their project.  Each of them will make an example of themselves as to how to properly "Link with Love" and credit the inspiration.  We'll be running the hop thru Noon EST on Sunday - so you have plenty of time to get thru it!

Liz Qualman created this beautiful layout and we have all used it for inspiration.  Each of us will tell what part we took our inspiration from.  The whole hop will culminate at Liz's blog where she'll provide us with a new sketch for inspiration.

Here is my page. I used a sketch of Liz's layout for my inspiration. I loved the bright, fun colours and the border of circles, so I included them on my page as well.

Many of the designers are providing prizes at their stop and Practical Scrappers is providing a prize for one person who becomes a follower at each stop (for all the details head over to Practical Scrappers). 
Blog Hop List 
Brettaney Quinton - You are here!

To enter to win the prize here on my blog, please leave me a comment.
I will choose a winner via random.org and announce it here on Monday, March 5th. Winner will be contacted via email, so make sure you leave your email address for me!
That's it, and you're on your way to Jayma's Blog!
