My Favorite Things: Sketch #258

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #258 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Happy Wednesday! 🙂

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_258Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_freaking_wmThis new Stitched Hexagon STAX is crazy versatile and crazy cool! I could tinker around for a long while with these! I off centered the sketch, but I like the way the whole thing still reads. At first, I had it in the center. But in the end, I guess I just like things a little off kilter. Ha!

hawkins_jill_freaking_00_wmAnd that sentiment. Freaking love! 😉

In messing around with the new MFT Hexagons, I made this card too:

hawkins_jill_sending love_wmLet’s see…on this one I cut the Hexagons, then die cut those hexagons. Then I glued them all together and decided it was TOO much hexagon, so I  trimmed them all down to get this. Ah, geometric fun! 🙂hawkins_jill_sending love_00_wmThis shape laid around my desk for a couple weeks, and then hopped on this card last night.

MFT Sketch #250 AND Holiday Tag!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #250 begins on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_250Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_elfie_wmI sort of stretched the center panels wider and shifted the feature element (in this case, the Elf’s selfie) to the side. I then used the letters for the banner element. Just a little creative interpretation right? 🙂

*elfie! I still giggle.

hawkins_jill_elfie_00_wmThis week is also an exciting, fun-filled Handmade Holiday celebration on the MFT Blog!

PrintBe sure to hop over there and catch up! Today, there are Tags-O-Plenty from several members of the Design Teams. I love tags! Here is my contribution:

hawkins_jill_joy tag_reWMOh my word–How much do I love the way the Four Way Chevron die cut with the Snow Drifts Cover Up and then with the Stitched Tag. I pulled it out of my machine after all the cutting, and just sort of gasped! LOL 🙂 Be sure to go join in the fun!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_249Here are my takes this week:

hawkins_jill_boo_wmBoo!! 🙂 Being our first sketch of October, I chose to go Halloween-y! 🙂 I layered in an Orange Zest frame here for interest. It seems to appear more in person. Weird. 🙂

MFT Sketch #248

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #248 rolls out today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_248Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_thank you really_wmKeeping it simple and bold. I enjoy using simply detailed supplies in different ways. The MFT Stitched STAX are really the best dies one can invest in. The possibilities!! 🙂 AND this sentiment is one of my all time favorites. PerfectO! The stitching is the nod to the stars in the sketch.

hawkins_jill_thank you really_00_wmIn my continuing effort to create cards faster (Never fear…I’ll always be very slow too!), I made this second card:

hawkins_jill_fella_wmI’m really enjoy the buildings and little scene pieces in the London Mouse set. But I was neglecting these cute little fellas! Awww…and they are cute! 🙂 Errr, I mean, handsome. 😉

hawkins_jill_fella_00_wmHope you’ll join us on the MFT Challenges! And be sure to check out the MFT Blog today to see the results of the Superstar Card Contest!! I can’t WAIT myself!! 🙂

MFT Sketch #247 + treats!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #247 begins its reign on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_247Here is my take this week: I rotated and flipped the banner a bit 😉

hawkins_jill_just because_wmThis New York die is awesome. 🙂 I’m pining for a Chicago one now. LOL 🙂 I also dig this sketch!

hawkins_jill_just because_00_wmI die cut the skyline and then used the positive and negative cuts as a stencil to spray with Copic markers. Something different. Fun fun! 🙂

I didn’t get my second sketch card made yet this week (September is a bit cookoo around here!), but I thought I’d share these cute little treats.

hawkins_jill_treats_wmQuick and simple. I thought I’d attach all the clothespins differently, to illustrate the options.

hawkins_jill_batty treats_wmI think this bat one is my fave! 🙂 But these ghosts below are my favorite images in this set. So cute!

hawkins_jill_boo treats_wmIt would be really easy to take these to the next level and add some twine and coloring. I also think some sparkle would be fun! But I knew the sparkle wouldn’t photograph well. 😉 I wanted to keep mine quick, simple and oh so fun! 🙂

hawkins_jill_meow treats_wmI do love fall and all it brings! Treats! 🙂
