More Snow..

It is my turn to post a sketch this week at 2 Sketches 4 You and this is the card I created for it. I looove this paper with the leaf cut-outs :). It would be so nice if you could play along so head on over to 2S4Y and get creative!
.
I would like to say that I will be cozy and warm indoors being creative myself but we have a few appointments this morning on our to-do list. Hope your 1st day of the week is a good one and perhaps a little warmer and dryer than Denver today ;)

Toot x2

This is my card based on Laura's sketch 2 in the February issue of Ett trykk magazine. This magazine is published by our friend Aashild in Norway. You can see Laura's card & sketch on her blog: A Day in the Life of the Paper Poppy.
.
I have a card in the April issue of Cards Magazine. It was such a pleasure last night to tuck the girls in bed and relax reading my latest issue of Cards. There are so many gorgeous works in there from fellow card designers that we all know - including Julie, Dawne and Lulu from the 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team - way to go girls - love your work!

Have an awesome weekend Hugs Kazan

DeNami Design

This is the card I made for Laura's sketch this week at 2 Sketches 4 You. The whole design team were lucky enough to work with the gorgeous stamps from DeNami Design. I love Nami's stamps and her work is beyond gorgeous. For this particular card I used her Love Script Stamp. She is also offering a 10% discount to all 2S4Y players so head on over there and check out her products - you are going to love what you see. Another fun product on this card is the awesome butterfly dies from Spellbinders. I think I have used them on almost every card I have made over the past few weeks - I love how defined and versatile they are. You can find the Butterfly Dies here: Spellbinders (and they are on sale too!) Happy Wednesday :) Kazan

Spring

Spring is in full force here in Colorado, including topsy-turvy weather. Here just South of Denver we are experiencing very mild to warm weather (I am in a t-shirt) and just North of Denver they are not seeing anything - because of blizzards! I love this time of year - my windows are open and I am so energized to create - just have to complete a few little chores before I get to play.
.
Regina is also in the mood for Spring and had her Design Team use the word Spring from the Stretch your Imagination cartridge to create projects for Bitten by they Bug this week! I made this Seed Gift Bag..which is funny because I have never planted anything in my life that has survived. My friend, Sonia, belongs to a Garden club so perhaps I have planted an idea for her to use as favors ;)

Happy Monday

2nd Sketch for Ett trykk

Happy Spring
This is my sketch #2 that I did for the 2S4Y article in the Norwegian Magazine, Ett trykk. Laura also made a card based on my sketch and you can see it on her blog: A Day in the Life of the Paper Poppy. I also wanted to share that the Love script stamp is from DeNami Design
.
I admit that I am heading into the weekend with a bit of trepedation - you see this is round two of trying to potty train Alex. She is ready but totally on her terms! It is going to be a long 3 days..wish me luck or survival ;)

We are enjoying the fabulous Spring weather by spending some play time outdoors.

Youth Art Month

This week at 2 Sketches 4 You it is my turn to post a sketch and we have a special event to go along with it. March is Youth Art Month and we are giving away prizes for the junior cardmaker too. My oldest daughter, Ashton, made a card for this occasion too. I was beaming with pride because at 4 1/2 I think she did a fabulous job. I know it looks more like a medieval structure but she actually drew a birthday cake and colored it with Sakura Markers. The papers, embellishments and design are all her own doing - I helped adhere ;). The Design Team also participated with their children - all tooo cute for words. Hope you can join us this week..

A few Pictures of our Trip

We really did have a lovely mini-vacation to St. George, Utah. The drive there and back is 10 hours and that can be challenging with two little girls but we did survive and came home with amazing photographs and video of spectacular scenery. While Kev attended a conference I was very fortunate to meet up with Cheryl who lives in St. George. We had such an awesome visit at a local scrapbooking store called: Pebbles in My Pocket (where I shopped to my hearts content! with Cheryl's help). If you have not visited Cheryl's blog, Cheryl June Girl, please do - her work is as gorgeous as she is (on the inside and out). Hope we get to do this really soon again Cheryl but this time the "treats" are on me - thank you ;)

Laura's Sketch for our Norwegian Pub

This is my interpretation of Laura's sketch 1 for the article in the Norwegian magazine Ett trykk. Laura and I each provided sketches and interpretations of those sketches for a 2 Sketches 4 You feature. This was the Magazine's anniversary issue and they boasted a gorgeous new chic look. You can see part of the fab new issues here: Ett trykk. Laura has posted her interpretation of her sketch on her blog: A Day in the Life of the Paper Poppy - it is a gorgeous card!
.
Happy Friday - I have a ton of catching up to do including getting my pictures off my camera from our fantastic Utah trip.

Celebrate

Good Wednesday Morning from St. George, Utah. We have had such a fun vacation so far and today, our last day, we will explore another beautiful canyon. I can't wait to share some pictures with you all. The girls and I also got to meet Cheryl yesterday. She is a very talented scrapbooker and cardmaker and happens to live in the area. I will post more about our visit and pictures after we return to Denver.
This week at Bitten by the Bug the team got to work with the Highway Sign from the Cartridge: Going Places. I loved this cut but most of all I loved the pieces produced by the Design Team - super cute and all so original. See for yourself here: BBTB

Yummy New Product

I was so excited to work with the gorgeous Paper from We R Memory Keepers as well as super cute matching embellies put together by Ali. This range is so fun and cheerful and perfect for so many occasions. All this and more can be found at Embellished Scrapbook Shoppe.
.
Tomorrow Kev and I are taking the girls on their first real road trip. We have driven with them to Nebraska which is only 4 hours away but now we are off to Utah and the trip should take between 8-10 hours. I am a little apprehensive driving such a far way with a 2.5 and 4.5 year old but I think we are loaded with all the goodies imaginable to keep them busy for the trip. I hope to arrive in St. George tomorrow night somewhat conscious to be able to do some updates on 2S4Y. If I am MIA you all know why ;)

Happy Friday

Card reveal for our Norwegian Pub!

Recently 2 Sketches 4 You was featured in the Norwegian scrapbooking magazine Ett trykk. Laura and I were asked to create 3 sketches each and then make cards based on not only our own sketches but each others too. Aashild & Annie did a fantastic job showcasing the cards and sketches - I really hope this magazine hits American shores one day soon - it is gorgeous!
.
This is my Sketch 1 and my card for it. Laura's interpretation of this sketch is on her blog: A Day in the Life of the Paper Poppy. We will be posting more sketches and cards in the weeks to come.

2 Sketches 4 You & Scor-it

This week it is my turn to post as sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. The whole Design Team each got to work with their very own Scor-it and Teresa Collins Paper. The makers of Scor-it have teamed with Teresa Collins and produced a fun product that all levels of cardmakers are going to love. The Die-cuts are so easy to use: just pop them out the sheet of paper, use your Scor-it to score along the marked sides, fold and voila! you have an instant card with fun paper embellies included to decorate as you please. There is a wonderful variety of styles and designs to choose from - the best part: You can win a Scor-it Mini and a set of Teresa Collins Die-cut Paper by playing along with us this week.

Have a wonderful Monday - Spring is certainly in the air
