Mid Week Mojo - Citrine #2

Hello there!

I created this fun little layout using the Scrapbook Steals Citrine #2 challenge sketch.

For this I used Huckleberry Pond papers from The Paper Loft and a couple rub-ons from an old Close to My Heart kit. I loved how simple this came together!

Here is the original sketch:

Mid Week Mojo Citrine #1

Happy end of September! I seriously can't believe that October is just around the corner. Time really has been speeding by lately.

It felt so good to scrapbook again...printing pictures and getting a little crafty just made my heart happy!

I was inspired to start the next series of sketch challenges on They just started their new 10-week series, Citrine. So, with any luck I can keep up and play along this time!

Here is my take on last weeks sketch:
I used the Huckleberry Pond and Hooked on Fishing collections from the Paperloft - I really love the rustic and outdoorsy themed papers...and these papers are perfect for all our camping and canoeing trips! The wooden buttons and wood veneer arrows are from Close to My Heart.

Here is the actual Citrine #1 sketch:

Guest Designer at Paper Loft

Today I'm featured on the Paper Loft blog as a guest designer from winning the August sketch contest! This is super exciting since I have never been a guest designer before!

These are the cards that sent using Paper Loft papers:
This birthday card was created with Huckleberry Pond papers, which have a more outdoorsy and masculine feel to them. The stamp is from the Everyday Button Bits stamp from Papertrey Ink.
This birthday card was made with papers from the Serendipity line (which is an older line, so it is no longer posted on their website for sale...but is by far one of my favorite collections). I fussy cut the flowers from one of the floral papers and the sentiments are from a coordinating word puzzle sheet.

This cute little card was not posted on the blog, but I made this for my aunt who just got a new nursing job. I really like this card, so I wanted to share it :) I used papers from Grandma's House (which is also another older line that doesn't look like all the papers are available any more through the Paper Loft website). But, the colors are are rich and pretty in person...this picture doesn't do much justice. The adorable Cheeky Nurse stamp is from the Greeting Farm. I colored her with a combo of copics and a CTMH white pigment ink marker (because I used the tan Paper Loft paper as my base to stamp on).
