About Me

I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

2 Sketches 4 You


Hi and Happy Wednesday. I find myself pretty tired today, I need to perk up. I have been perusing 2 Sketches 4 You's site for a while, I have just never done one of their challenges. The work people do for their sketches are amazing. I decided to give it a try this week. I wanted the illusion of snow falling. Let me know what you think. I started off with brushed silver cardstock, which is so pretty. I then covered it with glue and sprinkled (okay, poured dazzling diamonds on top of it) I used my scallop edge on the whisper white and layered it with a designer paper from gasp! Papertry. I had to do it, it just screamed snow. I then stamped the snow flakes from Snow Burst and used a glue dot to adhere it to the elastic string. I then stamped the sentiment from the Hugs & Wishes set and punched it using the oval punch. That's it, simple yet wintry. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by.

The glitter adds an extra element to your card, and your circles make it feel like its snowing.
