Play all day (mosaic layout)

Here is another photo mosaic layout I did recently. I just loved these pictures of Jaxon (my LSS owner's grandson) and all his Geo-Trax, and I thought they'd make a great mosaic layout. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Kraft cardstock by Bazzill, patterned paper by Queen & Co., gingham brads by Making Memories, and Core'dinations cardstock for the title (I ran a strip through my Dymo punch label maker)
Sorry that first picture is kinda blurry. Here's a closer/clearer one:

Have a dino-mite birthday (CPS sketch 174)

Ok, so it's my second time playing along with a sketch from Card Positioning Systems, and I'm really enjoying myself. Here is my card for sketch 174, which you can see here. This sketch was a great challenge for this linear brain of mine...I never skew or offset anything, so it was great to have a reason to do so. Thanks for looking!
The kraft cardstock is Recollections, all patterned papers are KI Memories, border punches are EK Success, dinosaur stamp is Prima stamped with Staz-On Timber Brown ink, glitter glue is Stickles by Ranger, ribbon is Basic Basic from Michael's, handwriting was done with American Crafts Memory Markers, stick pin is Dritz and the stopper on the tip is an earring back, machine stitched thread is Singer, and I used Prismacolor markers to color the dinosaur's scales and limbs.

hello sweet baby

Here is a baby card I made as part of a class I'm teaching called "Strictly Business", which features cards that fit in a business-size envelope (or A10). The stamp is by Technique Tuesday and reads "hello sweet baby: the world is a bit brighter now that you are here". The elephant die cut is from the Cricut Holiday Cakes cartridge. Cardstocks are Bazzill and Georgia Pacific, patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Lush Collection, ink is Staz-On Jet Black, buttons are Creative Imaginations, floss is DMC, scallop border punch is EK Success, ribbon is American Crafts, flocking on the elephant's ear is Fun Flock by Stampendous and is adhered with Glossy Accents by Ranger, corner rounder is We-R-Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. Thanks for looking!

***Edited to add the measurements*** This card measures 9 inches long by 4 inches wide, so the base cardstock was cut at 9 x 8 and folded in half. Thanks to Victoria for the comment :)
