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.
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.
Here you go!
I hope you like them and hope you will play along with us. Stop by the blog and show us what you create this week.
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!
Ahhh gay Paree…..one of my favorite cities in the world to visit. I’ve only been there once but would really love to go again.
Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is to create a project that represents Our Wonderful World. It could be a city that you like, or wish to visit. A culture that you are into.. something that represents this world that we live in.
As I mentioned, I love Paris. I love to travel period.
I created this fun card for you using my G45 Curtain Call line. I also added some bits and bobs from my stash like the ribbon, flower and pearls. This is the first time that I have used it and I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (what? yr suprised??) I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us on the blog. The DT has created some really great projects for you this week.
With Valentine’s day coming up so soon, you had to know that I would be posting another Love project.
Our challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week. One of my favorite movies……LOVE ACTUALLY is our theme! We would like to see a project about love, something that you love, a place you love, something that you love to do, oh the love choices are endless for interpretation!
This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls!
I’ve got a tag for you today. I love to play with layers and techniques so I thought this would be fun. I got this from a make and take class I did at a scrapbook convention one year. I just loved playing with different mediums and making them all come together.
There is some stamping and inking and modge podge (oh who doesn’t love MP). I really love that mesh overlay. I don’t play with mesh nearly enough. Paper images and some pearls and lace for that vintage feel. I wanted to give it some pop of color so I added some diecut hearts from my stash. Just a lovely vintage Parisian feel to this.
I hope you will play along with us at RCS this week for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor! Show us what you love!!!
We are back at Creative Corner Challenges! We took some time off and are now ready to get going with new challenges for the new year.
Our first one of this year in honor of Valentine’s Day and the month of February, is SEEING RED. We want to see red on your project. A nice easy challenge to start us off.
I created this card just using some bits and bobs from my scraps box and my Stampin Up Serene Silhouettes stamp.
I just wanted to make a simple any occasion card that I could use and send in the mail at the spur of the moment. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog this week. We’d love to see what you create!
We are thrilled to bring you a new challenge this week at Use Your Stuff. Our theme this week is ‘inspired by a song’. Lots of choices there!
I have chosen Brad Paisley’s Didn’t have to be, to create this Father’s Day card.
I just used some paper from my Oliver 6×6 pack from Basic Grey. I used my A Child’s Year cartridge to cut out the boy and his father. The wooden stars were spritzed with some smooch and then I had a little arrow clip. I added a bit of twine and a generic Father’s Day stamp I had. I hope you enjoy it and be sure to play along with us.
has got to be hands down, one of my fave 80′ movies EVA!!! It rocks. ’Nuff said.
That is our inspiration for the new challenge at Red Carpet Studio for the next 2 weeks.
So the idea is to create a project with breakfast in mind…your favorite food perhaps? A favorite eating place? Pancakes gone wrong??? You decide.
For me, I was excited to finally use this new stamp set from Stampin’ Up. LOVE IT!
What is breakfast without COFFEE right? Personally, I don’t know as I don’t drink coffee, but I really wanted to use this stamp set..LOL
All the items on this card are from Stampin Up. Totally love this new hexagon punch. The splatters are (I believe) from the Gorgeous Grunge set (so versatile). I added some corrugated cardboard and a little button with twine for some texture. It was also embossed. (totally can’t remember the embossing folder name, sorry ;( )
So, wipe the sleep from your eyes, brew a cup, and scuttle in your slippers over to the blog to see the other great projects from the DT this week. We can’t wait to see how you do breakfast!
As you are reading this, I am basking in the Cuban sunshine, sipping alcoholic drinks, eating lobster (well maybe not since I’m allergic) and having a grand time finishing up my holiday!
Another new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. Bring on your BLING!! Oh you know you want to do this one!! Who can resist the shiny??
I decided to go with a Valentine’s day card with the challenge. It feels like forever since I’ve made one and goodness knows I’ve got the supplies. I just decided to go with some bits and bobs from my stash. I don’t know who the DP is from but the little die cuts are all from K & Company. The doily is from the $$ store and the bling is all from my stash. I’ve got some pearls, a dainty rose and a cute bling heart in there as well. The ribbon is left over from my project last week
Have you been to the blog? The ladies have blinged it out! Go see!
