Add-on Sketch #8

Birthday Hat card by Mary Bezdicek

Supplies used: Paper & stickers, My Minds Eye “Home”; Bazzil and Coordinations Cardstock; Versa Color Ink, Chestnut Roan; Brad, Spare Parts; Marvy Liquid Appliqué; Pink Paislee Artesian Elements, Tattered Angels Black Cherry Glimmer Mist; Straight From the Nest Cricut Cartridge.

·        For this card I used my Design Studio to weld two party hats (using the Shadow Creative Feature) together from the “Straight from the Nest Cartridge.  I cut then cut a single of the Shadow in pink and 5 of the hats (Creative Feature off) 1 in white cardstock and 4 from a different sheet of the MME paper.  If any of you would like the cut file I made for this contact me at my blog.
·        Layering all of the patterned paper together, I cut the hats in fourths so my lines would match and adhered them to the white base.
·        I cut four of the hat pom pom and layered them to create the “fluff”.  I layered the base and the pom pom on the pink Party Hat.  The “fluff” was adhered by a brad.  I then put this on top of the card.

·  The Pink Paislee Artesian Element was sprayed with the Black Cherry Glimmer Mist and adhered over the paper seam.
·  The Marvy Liquid Appliqué was applied on the hat trim and once dried I ran a heat gun over the top to create the dimension on the trim.  It was then adhered to the bottom of the card.

Two-page Sketch #18

"Anthony & Grandpa" by Mary Bezdicek

Supplies used - Paper and stickers: Bo Bunny “Block Party”; Embroidery floss: We R Memory Keepers; Stickles: Ranger, Star Dust; Cardstock: American Crafts; Ink: Color Box, Chestnut Roan; Star border punch: EK Success; Other: Cricut Tie the Knot and Don Juan Cartridges.

This page was very bittersweet to make as “Grandpa”, my husband’s father passed away June 7, 2011. These pictures were taken during our family Easter celebration this past spring, our last family celebration with Dad in attendance. It was just two weeks later that Dad starting failing…this page really brings home the reason that I scrapbook.


• I used two 6X4 vertical photos on the left side of the page.

• The title was wrapped around the photos.

• The waves were replaced with 1 ¾” X 12” red paper and I layered two 1/4” X 12” strips of striped paper on the top and bottom of the red strip. The star boarder was placed in the center of the two striped strips.

• The star boarder was punched from double sided paper, so I took the stars, flipped them so the coordinating color was face up. I then glued them down and covered them with Star Dust Stickles.

• The swirls were cut from the Cricut Tie the Knot Cartridge. I stitched on the blue swirls for an accent.

"Jenny & Andy" by Mary Bezdicek

Supplies used - Paper: Basic Grey “Bittersweet”; Cardstock: Bazzill; Border punch: EK Success; Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angels (Vintage Pink, Black Cherry, Iridescent Gold); Ink: Versa Color (Black); Crackle accents: Ranger; Tools: Sizzix Flower Layers die, Cricut George and Basic Shapes Cartridges; Crystals: Zva Creative Crystals; Brad: unknown;


• I used 9 X 5 ½” photo on the left side of the page.

• The sun embellishment was replaced with a flower on the lower right corner of the photo.
To make the flower, I soaked with Glimmer Mist three of the large flowers, two of the medium flowers and 1 small of the flower dies and crumpled them up while wet. I then flattened them and finished drying them with my heat gun. After the flowers where dry, I punched a hole in the center and added the brad.

• The waves were replaced with 2 ¾” X 12” paper and I layered one ¼ “ X 12” strips of striped paper on the bottom and one ½ “ X 12” strip of paper on the top. The heart boarder was placed in the center of the two striped strips.

• Hearts cut from the Cricut George and Basic Shapes using coordinating papers were adhered to the boarder using foam dots and covered with Ranger Crackle Accents.

• The journaling was the cover of Jenny and Andy’s wedding program.

• The waves were replaced with Zva Creative Crystals.

These were my takes on the two sketches and I hope you were inspired.
