TSR Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying the TSR Mod Squad blog hop so far. I've found a fantastic sketch from Page Maps, way back from June 2009! I have been organised enough to file the older Page Maps sketches that I have printed out but can't seem to find the ones I just printed at the beginning of September! Oh well, I really like this sketch. I think Becky Fleck designed this card to be 3x8. I did my card 4x8 so it will fit in a letter sized envelope.

I used the Fancy Pants My Family kit from The Scrap Room's September kit. I used the Bazzill Lily Pad cardstock along with the Aunt patterned paper. I cut up words from the Family Words sheet and matted them on black cardstock. I made the card from the Bazzill, added a matte of Aunt and then used some of the Fancy Pants ribbon from the kit under the matted words.

I like this style of card which I can use as a general friendship card, a thank you or even a birthday card! And I love that I can use even the smallest pieces of paper (leftovers even) from a TSR kit to make a great looking card!

For your next stop on this blog hop, please visit Rebecca at her home on the web, Pieces of Me.

Happy October everyone! And Happy World Card Making Day (2 October!)


  1. Love the card Gab and that size is great! I'll have to try making one that size.

  2. Great use of the "Cards" sheet words, and ribbon! The sketch was perfect for this line!

  3. I love how all of our cards are different. This is awesome, Gab! I may "cardlift" this one!!

  4. Gab, this is such a cute card with the word accents and love your take on that sketch!

  5. Sometimes I just don't know what to do with papers that have phrases, or in this case, just the words, but you pulled it all together in one fabulous card! Great job Gab. :-)

  6. Great card! You did a great selection of the sketch! So happy to see you, writing a blog!!

  7. Oh wow, I love the size of that card gab!
