I am so excited to start my month as the guest designer for 4 Crafty Chicks this week. It is going to be such fun and I know you are going to enjoy the challenges coming up
To start off, we have a color challenge for you! Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, River Rock (burgundy, dark green, pale green, dark brown )
At first I thought that these colors would be hard to work with but surprisingly it was pretty easy and they really go great together!
Here is the card I made. I got my inspiration for this card from Pinterest (which I have been spending a lot of time on lately) and I used up all the stamps in my French Foliage stamp set from Stampin Up (which is also a challenge from the Stamp It Card Challenges magazine).
I really liked how this turned out. I added some distressing as well as some twine and a clip for some dimension. I decided I didn’t want to put a sentiment on this card because I wanted to either a) add the sentiment later for whatever I wanted to use the card for or b) just send it as a blank for anything card. I hope you like it and please don’t forget to play along with us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. We would love to see what you do with these colors!
It’s snowing here. A lot. **sigh** With all of the white stuff falling down, it’s kind of hard to think of anything but Christmas but it was nice to make a change. Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week, is Butterflies!
I have this really great Stampin Up die cut that I picked up but really haven’t had a chance to use yet so it was fun to break it out.
I am mailing this out to someone special so I didn’t want to add too many embellishments to it. I just used some scraps of DP that I had on my desk and my trusty go to Stampendous stamp set for the sentiment. I added a few pearls and a little bling as well. I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the blog and play along with us this week!
So an Elf on a Shelf named Sam arrived at our house last night and my son is thrilled! He thinks that Sam is so cool because he keeps moving all over the place. I think this is just the funnest thing and can’t wait to see what kind of mischief Sam gets into as he keeps an eye on Riley for Santa.
Speaking of Santa, I have a new project for this week’s challenge at Use it Tuesday. It’s an anything goes challenge, so lots of fun to be had…just make sure you tell us about some older stash that you used for your project.
I have some pieces from my Lost and Found Christmas set from MME. I added this old vintage image that was in my embelly box as well as a bit of twine and some sequins. Not a heavily embellished card but I am on a clean and simple kick which of course for me is unusual!
I hope that you will join in our challenge this week. We look forward to seeing what you create!
Ahh another Friday. I have another craft fair tomorrow, the last one of the season for me this year. I hope it goes well.
Our challenge at Creative Corner Challenges this week is Heavy Metal…we would like to see some sort of metallic element to your project. It could be an embellishment, a technique, paper…whatever you like. We are being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments this week and they are offering some free images to the winner!
Here is my project for you this week using one of the great images from Crafty Sentiments….
The DP for today’s project is from My Mind’s Eye (12 Days of Christmas). I colored with my copics and added a little bit of stickles to the muff. I added a little bit of bling and for my metallic element I added a couple of staples in the corner. The sentiment is from Hero Arts I believe.
I hope you like it and will play along. Don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the other DT projects this week.
I am so excited to bring my first hosted challenge for Use Your Stuff! My challenge this week is SNOW! We want to see anything having to do with snow on your projects, snowflakes, snowmen, snowfall, winter fun, etc.
For my project I did a layout of a picture of my DH and I during one of his company Christmas parties.
The DP is from Echo Park (this and that) and Fancy Pants (Home for Christmas). I added in a few embellishments from My Mind’s Eye as well as Bo Bunny. I added in some wooden snowflakes that I had. Some I painted white and added some shimmery spritz, and some I just left blank. My little tree I added some glossy accents to as well.
I hope you enjoy it and please stop by the blog today to play along with us in this challenge.

Hello all! Welcome to the blog. Our new challenge is up at Use It Tuesday this week. It’s all about the stick….adhesive, stickers, tape, anything that sticks down. We want to see it.
For my project today I made this cute little pregnancy card.
For my ‘stick’ I used some good old fashioned glue, as well as some double sided tape for my rick rack. I also added in some adhesive mesh for dimension and a little Glossy Accents to stick down the stars and to add some shine to her head band. I hope you enjoy this week’s card and be sure to stop by the blog to play along with us this week. The DT has created some great projects for you to enjoy! Get your stick on!!!
Hello everyone! Welcome to Monday and a new challenge at Use Your Stuff. This week’s challenge is to use limited supplies…perhaps it is a CAS card, using some old supplies in a new way. Perhaps like me, you just want to use some little bits and bobs that are already on your desk.
For this week’s card, I used a candy cane striped embossing folder that was already on my desk from another project. So was this little piece of red cardstock, some bling, ribbon and a stamp set that I had used on another project.
A pretty basic but pretty card. I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the other DT has created and to play along with us as well.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I kid you not, we have snow here in Calgary today. It may not last long, but it is definitely here today. :(
I am excited to bring you my first project as a member of the Use Your Stuff DT. Our Challenge this week is to use eyelets on your project. I will admit. I have lots of eyelets, a crop a dile and yet, I don’t seem to be able to put them together on a regular basis. It was fun to get them out this time and use them for this Christmas card.
I picked up this great new Sizzix flip it die from Stephanie Barnard while I was at my crop on Saturday and am just loving it! The DP is from Echo Park (yes I finally broke into my EP stash. It’s A Very Merry Christmas) and the ornament is from my stash as are the buttons, eyelets and twine. I hope you like this card and be sure to stop by our blog and play along in this week’s challenge.
