Sketchy Saturday on 2 Peas Refugees

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Today I'm hosting Sketchy Saturday on 2 Peas Refugees.  Here is my spin on a Page Maps sketch from August of 2019, by Becky Fleck.  I hope it inspires you!

Here's the sketch:

And here's what I did with it:

I moved a few things around, and I changed the size of the photos.  I also added some embellishments (enamel dots, die cuts, and stickers).  The patterned papers are from Doodlebug.  I stamped some pawprints on the brown cardstock base to make my own patterned paper.  I cut the dinosaur, balloons, party hat, and title using my Cricut Maker machine.

Please leave a comment if you'd like to see me create a video showing these techniques for my YouTube channel.  Thanks for visiting My Crafty Life!

Shaker Cards with Crafter's Companion and My Favorite Things

Hi there!  I wanted to share some of the shaker cards that I've been making with some dies and stamps by Crafter's Companion (Edge'ables Word Stamps & Dies, Gemini Window Arches) and My Favorite Things (Hog Heaven).  These were so much fun to make!

Here's a link to a video with Sara Davies (owner of Crafter's Companion) demonstrating the dies on HSN.

Sharing Some Valentine's Day Cards

Happy Valentine's Day - a little early!  I wanted to share a few cards that I made this week, in addition to the ones that are already in  my Etsy shop.  A list of the supplies, with affiliate links, will be below each photo.  Thanks for visiting!  If you'd like me to do a tutorial/video on how to make any of the cards, please leave a comment.  Happy crafting!


I used the punched-out negative cardstock to stencil the envelope using a Kaleidacolor Desert Heat inkpad by Tsukineko.

For this card, I used my Cricut Explore Air.
