Color Dare 100!

Hi y'all! We are celebrating our 100th challenge at Color My Heart this week! Our colors are Barn Red, Pacifica, and Crystal Blue. I used the Dakota paper pack to make my layout:

Sorry about the bad photography! The foil complements don't lend themselves to a flash very well.

Come join us this week. We have an extra week to play along, and we are offering a PRIZE for the winner!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Barn Red, Whisper
B&Ts: Dakota

Color Dare 98 with Sweet Home

Our color dare this week at Color My Heart is Indian Corn Blue and Buttercup. I don't know that I've ever used these two colors by themselves together, but I really like the combination! I used the retired paper pack, Sweet Home, which also had Garnet in the mix, but I used the papers with just the yellow and blue. I made a layout using the right side of Designer's Eye from Cherish.

Come play along with us this week!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White, Indian Corn Blue
B&Ts: Sweet Home
Stamps: Laughing Lola Scrapbooking WOTG, Home Sweet Home
Ink: Indian Corn Blue, Buttercup, Colonial White
Other: On Target Dimensional Elements, Colonial White Buttons, Floret Paper Shapes

Father's Day Cards

I had some free time today, so I decided to participate in some challenges. I made some Father's Day cards with the Victory paper pack and Stickease, since I already had it out for my Color Dare layout. I'm also entering these cards into these challenges:

Mojo Monday
Heart to Heart - studs
The Pink Elephant - Father's Day/Masculine
Color My Heart

I used the same sketch for both cards, but made one landscape and one portrait. I used the plaid side of the paper for the first card:

And the camo side of the paper for the second one:

I will give one of these to my dad, and one to my father-in-law.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Bamboo, Chocolate
B&Ts: Victory
Stickease: Victory
Other: Durables Studs

Color Dares 96 and 97

It's been a while since I posted to this blog. I have been faithfully blogging each day at 365 No Repeats. I've been making a Crock Pot recipe a day. Needless to say, I've been eating well! But I have to feed my family. What I haven't been doing is scrapbooking. But I got some time with my friend tonight, and we each made 2 layouts! It's better than nothing. Here's my first, for Color Dare 96, Creme Brulee, Sorbet, and Crystal Blue. Balloon Ride. The layout is from Magic - One-Way Mirror:
