The first page of this layout met the challenge to use 3 fonts/products in the title.
The second page met the challenge to use journaling cards for something other than journaling.
Most of the paper products on these pages are by K&Co. The cute bird and bird house stamps are by Unity.
This one used song lyrics. You may recognize the song as the first one on my blog playlist. I couldn't believe it was one of the choices for this challenge, since it is one of my favorites. It Today was Your Last Day. I didn't use the title but I chose some of the lyrics that went espcially well with these photos of my daughter living life to the fullest.

I have already pre-ordered mine. The images I have seen from the spring kit are beautiful and I don't want to miss out again. Head over to her blog by clicking on the image on the right and check it out.

This is the card Leslie designed.
This card was designed by Leslie's daughter Marissa. Laurie used it as her contribution since she hasn't been feeling very well lately.

Anyway, I have managed to get some cards made. I completed all 4 challenges for the new Verve release. Here are three of them.
This one is for the color challenge :soft blue, soft yellow, and soft brown. The stamps are Unity and the sketch is from Stamp TV.
This one uses sketch 3. The sentiment is Verve and the image is Stampendous. I used Nestabilities, copic markers,Daisy D paper, Doodlebug frills, and Stampin Up oval punches.

This one is for the Gina K stamp tv color challenge and Secret Crafter Saturday challenge to use stripes. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
This card is for the Happy something challenge at Stamp Something. It also meets challenges from both weeks 1 and 2 on the Lifetime Moments site in the stamping thread.

This card uses sketch 23 from Triple the Sketches and it meets the Whiff of Joy challenge to distress your card. I am still trying to get better at using my copic markers. I have trouble with bleeding. I think that means I'm over saturating the paper. I use good quality paper (Papertrey Ink) with them so that' s not the problem. I have learned a lot from different sites on-line and there are many people in the Magnolia-ious group that do gorgeous coloring. I guess I just need to keep studying and keep practicing.

This uses the sketch 51 at Triple the Sketches. They are celebrating their first anniversary with a blog hop and some special RAKs.
This card used stamps by Elyzabell and Verve. Dp is K&Co. , ribbon is Autumn leaves, flower is Prima, and the chipboard button is Making Memories.
At least this one meets a bunch of different challenges. I used the sketch at CPS and the recipe at Papertake Weekly. Several other sites all had challenges to make spring or Easter cards. It also meets this week's challenge at LM, to use ribbon and a journaling spot. It's an unusual size because I'm trying to use up a bunch of old Hallmark envelopes I've had laying around for years. Works perfectly with this K&Co mat pad stack. With the decorative edges, I haven't wanted to cut them down to use on regular sized cards.

This was somewhat of a challenge, since I don't have any Unity stamps that are , strictly speaking, baby stamps. But I do think the deer is adorable so I went with it.
