{ I stay up late....}

...and make cards. I should probably go to bed when Alex goes to bed. This is the only, uninterrupted, time I have to create and I am doing what I love.
It was National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday and I got a ton of stuff done. Create My Keepsake has the best crops and prizes. Here are some of the things I made on Saturday and Sunday.
This first card is all Tinkering Ink patterned paper from their Al Fresco collection. I love those colors. The little bird stamp is from Imaginisce. I found it at my LSS for $0.99!

I am in love with Kraft paper. I picked up a pack at Hobby Lobby the other day. Jennifer McGuire mentioned on her blog that she loves using colored pencils on Kraft paper, so I had to try. I used Prismacolor pencils and I have to tell you that I love it, too. That tree is a template from The Crafters Workshop. The little house is Jenni Bowlin journaling card, Heidi Grace stamp and the little butterflies are Martha Stewart punch. Here is a little layout I did. They take a little longer, but I have so many photos now, that I want to do more. I started a little journal with ideas, sketches and notes. It's just a plain notebook that I want to alter. If I ever do I will show you. I used Making Memories Chelsea's Place patterned paper. I think you can only get it at Michaels. The green patterned paper is Scenic Route. I added DCWV flowers and Creative Cafe buttons.
