Oh Snap

Hello all!  It’s my turn to host the challenge at Use Your Stuff this week and of course I chose At the Movies!  We all know how much of a movie fan I am!

The challenge is to create a project using a film for inspiration…it could be the theme, an actor, a line from the movie, the title, so many possibilities.

Although I’ve not yet seen it, I used the Veronica Mars movie as inspiration for using my DP.  Film and cameras!  I used the Oh Snap Echo Park paper that I won last year.

I hope you enjoy the layout (been awhile hasn’t it!) and be sure to stop by the blog and see the other great projects from the DT and to play along.

Hopping down the Bunny Trail

Hello!  It’s almost that time can you believe it??? Easter will soon be here.  I need to start thinking of what the Easter bunny is going to bring my little guy :)

Our challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week is inspired by the film HOP



The theme, is Easter.  What does it make you think of?  Chocolate, cute chicks and bunnies? Eggs or just pretty pastel colors. Whatever it is, we want to see it.  Besides some great DT inspiration for you this week, we have a wonderful sponsor for this week’s challenge so you definitely want to check out the blog for this one!

Here’s my card for this week.  I really loved this House Mouse image that I’ve had for awhile.  It was nice to pick up my Copics again for some fun coloring and I’m just thrilled with the Taylored Expression Dies…love em!



I hope you like it and please come play with us!


Snow.  We still have it and want it to go away!  We are hopefully **fingers crossed** going to have some better weather here this weekend.

Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenge this week is April Showers bring May Flowers.  We would like to see projects with flowers, water, rain, anything along those lines.

I have been creating a lot of ATC’s lately for some Swap-bot challenges.  So I decided to do one that would work with our challenge this week as well.





To create this ATC I used a book page that was sent to me in a swap.  I inked it with some distress ink and then stamped the flower (Stampin Up) over top.  I added a sticker that I had in my stash and washed it all down with some Modge Podge.  I then added a little bit of twine to finish it off.  I hope you like it.

Be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us.

Wishing for Spring

It’s snowing here.  Again.  Still.  **sigh**

I am so tired of winter and am just praying that spring comes soon.  I had that in mind when I created my card for this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff.  The challenge is die cuts.  Everyone has them and there are so many ways to use them!

I decided to use my butterfly die from stampin up.  It’s really cute and so versatile.  I’ve had this DP for a long time…not sure who it is by but I just love those flowers.



I had a little piece of a doily left over from another project that I wanted to add to this as well.  A bit of bling and some colored twine and you have a bit of spring :)  The hello sentiment is also from Stampin Up.

Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the amazing! projects the girls have for you this week.


Vacation Paradise

Happy Sunday everyone!  Another snowy day here in Calgary.  Yes, you read right.  Snow.. already spring and it is still snowing..  Ugh!  I will be so glad when spring will actually make an appearance.

In honor of the nice weather that is supposed to be here we have a new challenge for you at Red Carpet Studio this week.  Using the awesome movie (and my #2 favorite) Beaches….


Spring having sprung, vacations being planned, & relaxing times on the horizon, create a project inspired by a beach.  Do you have vacation pictures that need scrapped?  Are you partial to beach colors?  We can’t see how you are inspired!

As many of you know, we regularly hit Cuba each year for our family vacation.  I decided to do a layout with that in mind.  On cold yukky days like this, I go back to those warm tropical breezes, the ocean and gorgeous beaches  that I love so much.



I used an old cloud 9 set that I’ve had for a very very long time.  LOL.  It had co-ordinating embellishments which were perfect for this layout.  I hope you will stop by the blog and check out the great beach inspiration from the DT and play along with us.

Happy Easter

Head on over to the Creative Corner Challenges blog for our new challenge this week.  We want to see texture.  I love layers of texture on cards.  I think it just really makes them..lots of touchy feely! :)  The DT has created some gorgeous cards for you to check out.

Mine is from my Stampin Up card class that I just did recently.  We made this adorable Easter card.  I have some dry embossing, as well as some glossy accents on my eggs which are popped up with foam dots,  a few little pearls.  A fun little border punch and some great layers.  All the products are Stampin Up of course.

I hope you like it and come play along with us!


Luck of the Irish

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  One of my favorite holidays because, as you all know, GREEN is my favorite color.  That’s why I was super excited for our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week.  It’s all about the green!!  We want to see any all green on your project this week, as many layers of it as you can put on there.  The DT has some wicked projects for you to check out.

As for me, I created this monochromatic green card.


I made this card using the Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy set.  The rub on is from my stash as are the pearls.  I used a star punch from Martha Stewart as well as a spellbinders die cut.  Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to stop by the blog to play along.
