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

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….

Beaches_-_poster

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!

Lucky Me

Well, one of my favorite holidays will be coming up soon.  Yep, St. Patrick’s day…love me the green!! :)

It kinda ties in with our new challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week.  Our theme is The Lucky One

The_Lucky_One_Poster

the challenge is to create a project a project that signifies Luck…maybe it’s St. Patrick’s day related, or something that is lucky to you or you feel lucky to have.  Even just something green. :)

For me, I always feel that I am truly lucky and blessed to have my son.  I had a miscarriage before him, and thought for sure that I would never have another child and lo and behold, luck was on my side, or providence, God’s grace or whatever you believe…I was blessed with the most amazing little man.

Here is a layout from one our first trips to Cuba with little guy…he was small enough to fit in the suitcase (not that he travelled to Cuba that way! :) )

HPIM1262

The DP is from Cloud 9 which I think is called Travel.  All the embellishments and journal stickers are from my stash.  I’ve had them so long I don’t remember anymore where they came from :)

I hope you like the layout and please play along with us this week.  We can’t wait to see what you create!

The Journey

Happy Monday!  I’m hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff.  Anyone that knows me, knows that travelling is one of my passions.  I totally love it and that is this week’s theme.  For my project, I’ve been doing a lot of ATC’s for swap-bot, so I created some travel themed ones for the challenge.

I created these mostly with just bits and bobs from my scrap box.  That is the perfect thing about ATC’s.  It just uses up those little bits.  I hope you like them and be sure to stop by the blog to see the great layouts the ladies did this week.  Some wonderful visited cities!

And The Winner is….

Hey everyone!  It’s soon to be Oscar time. Did you know that the late Shirley Temple Black names the statue?  She said it looked like her uncle Oscar :)

Our challenge for you this week at Red Carpet Studio is to incorporate the theme of the Academy Awards into your project….is it the color gold, or perhaps a trophy that you won?  Is one of your favorite stars this year’s nominee.  So many possibilities.    Our DT has created some great projects for you this week so make sure you check out the blog.

As for me, I was inspired by the color gold.  I don’t use it a lot on my projects but I do love gold glitter paper!  It is so fun and just adds some pop to my projects.  I decided to create an anniversary card for a friend.

Since it is going to be mailed, I wanted to keep it simple.  As well, I am working on my CAS cards so this fit perfectly.  I used just some basic cardstock colors and an anniversary stamp that I’ve had for awhile.  It’s definitely my go to stamp for anniversary cards.  Just a block of gold glitter paper to set it off.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us this week.

A little bit

That is the theme of this week’s challenge at Creative Corner Challenges.  We are challenging you to use up those little bits and bobs you may have on your table and around your scrap space from other projects.  The odd embellishment, so bits of DP, ribbon, a lone button etc.

We are being sponsored by Scribbles Designs this week and here are some cards that I created just with whatever I had laying around on my table.

Love

Hey everyone!  It’s family day here in Alberta.  Just spending time with the family.    Our new challenge is up at Use Your Stuff.  Our challenge is to use Hearts on your project.  This is such an easy challenge I am sure!

So in honor of our challenge and of family day here in Alberta, I created this layout of me and my brothers.  One of my brothers lives in BC so it’s hard for the 3 of us to get to get together.  Those time are few and far between.  This one was taken about 5 years ago.

I just used some scraps from my stash to create this.    The wooden hearts, flower and the wooden butterflies I covered over with my smooch spritz.  The flowers, button and the Love die cut were also from my stash.  I also added some bling for a bit of sparkle.

Just a simple layout today but I hope you like it.  Blue and pink for boys and a girl :)

Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the rest of the projects from the DT and to play along with us this week.  We would really like to see what you create!
