Hi there. Sorry I haven't been around much in the last couple of weeks. There has been way too much going on in my crazy life to even begin to explain, so let's just say, I'M BACK! Finally had a few hours in the house alone today, and bet you can guess where I headed. Yes, the scrap room, which by the way, is one BIG mess. I would take a photo, but it is way too embarrassing to show....maybe when I've cleaned it up a little.

So, I have 2 cards to share today. The first one is WS Logan. You know how sometimes you make a card and it turns out even better than you anticipated. Well, this is one of them.

I stamped Logan onto Xpress blending card, paper-pieced his hoodie and colored him in copics. I then masked him off and added the splotchy TGF background stamp and the airbrushed background colors. I had a white doodlebug border strip, so decided to use my airbrush to make this match the background. I am really happy with the finished product. It was Father's Day here a couple of weeks ago. I have made this to give to DH (late, i know), but I like it so much i just may have to keep it, LOL.

I have followed Jen's deconstructed sketch this week. Check out her blog here. Here's her sketch, which I found really easy to follow. Think I might keep this one for future reference.



My other card is a remake of Cheeky Kitty. Sometimes I also make cards that I really am NOT happy with, and the Cheeky Kitty card from my very last post was one of these. So, today I decided to play a little, and I am much happier with the final product.

Still not my favorite card, but you'd have to agree, it is much improved.

That's all for today. Back to my scrap room for a big tidy up and hopefully a few more cards. Thanks for stopping by,

Tracey. XO.


  1. Tracey, I always ADORE your cards and this Logan card is FABULOUS! LOVE that DP, the paper-piecing on his hoodie, the die-cut stars, the stick pins, and that splotchy background stamped in black! Ok, I love EVERYTHING about this card and your Cheeky Kitty car is GORGEOUS, too...these are my two FAVOURITE stamps that have been released recently...I like them even more than, "Miss Anya Bags", *GASP*..I know...but, these two guys are right up my alley!

  2. Thanks so much Naomi. I think Logan is my favorite too!

  3. Loving the Logan card, love how you have paper pieced his jackethe looks way cool.and i just that paper.

  4. Love, love, love that Logan Tracey. Seeing that gold pin makes me so cross that I didn't buy some of them on Saturday. I picked them up and then put them down again - bad decision :)

  5. WOW! These are fantastic! I love both of these!! Your stick pins are fantastic! I love the colors on the Logan and that heart Nestie on Cheeky Kitty!! I could go on and on!!! Thanks so much for joining us for this week's Deconstructed Sketch!
