OK, so I have been thinking for awhile about making a kaleidoscope using patterned paper. My mom had made a baby quilt for my son using this technique, so I used that quilt for the inspiration. When the challenge was announced, I knew that this is what I had to do. The paper used here is from the 2008 DCWV Christmas Stack. HERE is the link to the challenge thread.

Here is the card that I made for the Card Sketch challenge at From C to Shining C, you can find this challenge HERE. I used Papertrey Ink paper in Lemon Tart and Ripe Avocado. I also used PTI ribbon in Lemon Tart and Spring Moss. The plaid ribbon is from Michael's $1 bin. The marigold cut is a SVG file from SVGCuts.com. I cut this on my Cricut Expression using SCAL. I really liked how this turned out, and I think I will be using this Sketch as an outline in the future!

Here is the card that I made for this challenge (From C to Shining C). It is kind of hard to see in the picture, but I embossed the entire patterned paper in a holographic embossing powder that I got at Hobby Lobby. It really makes the card shimmer. I cut the star using my Coluzzle (still upset that it was discontinued) and the stamp on the star says Imagine and have a butterfly image. Very cute, now I just have to figure out who to give it to!!
Here is the card that I made for From C to Shining C's color challenge. The colors were brown, light blue, pink, and green. I was having difficulty with this one for some reason, still not sure why, so I decided to have some fun with my Cuttlebug! I used 4 different embossing folders on the card, I think the brown is Stylized Flowers, green is Swiss Dots, the pink is Bloom Dots?, and the blue is Distressed Stripes. The stamp on the pink is a little postmark that says Thinking of You, not sure where I got that one from. I actually really like how this turned out, I typically only use one embossing folder per card, so this was a change for me. It definately added a lot of interest!

I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking for more than 10 years now, and I love it. I admit that I haven't done much in the last few years as I have been incredibly busy raising my two sons, Jared and Mason, as well as working in the family business. Recently, my husband and I converted a room in our house to be "Mommy and Daddy's Time Out Room". With this, I finally have a place to craft! Much easier than the kitchen table with the kids running around. I am going to work on getting some pictures and other info on here as soon as I can, so check back soon.
