It's MY DAY to be GUEST DESIGNER over at TAC's Savvy Projects blog!!!

The Angel Company did a bloghop EVERY DAY in the month of May and I was a guest designer for them on May 23rd. To check out more entries, the link is:

The week of May 22nd we used sketch 61 that was designed by my good friend and multi-talented ANGEL, Heather Scott.

The faux scallop border was made by punching four circles, cutting them in half and butting them up against the 5 1/2" strip. Adhere to back with scotch tape. It's a great way to use your left over scraps so I hope this trick comes in handy for you. If you punch holes in the scalloped border, do it before adhering panel to card front. CLICK on any card to view an enlarged version.
ALL listed supplies available through TAC via your local Angel: Caboodles Set B (cardstock & Copic markers), Flowers Impressabilities Die, 3/4" circle punch, 2 1/2" circle punch, Lil' Cuties (special edition) stamp set, scissors, adhesive

Aren't you totally amazed at how very different our cards look when we all use the same sketch to begin with? My second card uses cardstock from TAC's paper collection called EMMA. I have changed the orientation of my card from landscape to portrait. The only other liberty that I took with the sketch was to add a thin scrap of patterned cardstock on top of the green strip.

ALL listed supplies available through TAC via your local Angel: Caboodles Set C (cardstock & Copic markers), pattern cardstock from the Emma Collection, kraft cardstock, 3/4" circle punch, 2 1/2" circle punch, Rolling By stamp set, scissors, hole punch, adhesive, Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad, Desert Sand Memento inkpad, hydra sponge

another SKETCH card

All SUPPLIES used are available to order via me (or your local Angel) through The Angel Compay. For secure ordering from me, click here.
Cardstock: V-376 Limeade, V-373 Marmelade, V-381 Whimsy
Copic Markers: V15, YR68, YG09
Inkpad: Tuxedo Black Memento
Stamp Set: When Spiders Are Seen

My card is brighter than it appears here. The cardstock circle actually has a way cool texture that you can't see . . . since I made a boo boo and ended up stamping on the back side of the cardstock. The cardstock and Copic markers are from our TAC Caboodle Sets D and E.

May's been a hectic month for me!

CABOODLES (Coordinating Cardstock & Copic Marker sets)

I love that The Angel Company (TAC) has paired packs of cardstock that coordinate perfectly with the oh-so-popular Copic markers and have created 7 different sets (set A to set G) called CABOODLES! It certainly makes the whole process of matching papers to markers a breeze since it's already been done for us by TAC. If you are interested in learning more about these awesome sets, email me at
