My Final Projects for The Sampler Kit

I am sad to announced that my 1 year term as a Design Team member  for The Sampler Kit will be over at the end of the month. ;(   I am sad to go... but I knwo the ladies will continue to give you great inspiration from their kits! 

I was able to create two more layouts and a card with my December kit and wanted to share them with you all.  This layout here --->

is from the December Sketch challenge for The Sampler Kit Club.  You can find how to submit your layout HERE. I also used it for a "NO Challenge" Challenge that I am hosting over at Colorful Creations.

Here is another layout I created -->

I just fell in love with these hand made tags that came in the kit when I first saw then! Great job Holly!

Lastly a card  that I made with a Hambly transparency-- >

I hope you were inspired by my project throughout the year and try out their monthly kits.  You can get more info on their monthly kits HERE.

Happy Scrappin'!

Girls Weekend Mini Book Done!

Using not only the November Samper Kit, but leftovers from other Sampler Kits, I have completed my Girls Weekend "Amy Tangerine's" Mini Book!  I am so excited because it has been a while since I made a mini book and I really love how this came out.  It is kind of hard to see it since the album doesn't quite lay flat, but here are the photos:

Thanks for looking! :)
