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.
Ahh back to home. I had a wonderful time in Cuba. Sad that I am home. :(
Today is my last challenge with 4 Crafty Chicks. I have had such a wonderful time over the last 2 months as their guest designer. They are just an amazing group of girls to create along with.
Our Challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES. Who doesn’t love one of those!!!
Here is this week’s card.
I just used some scraps from my box for this one. I have lots of 6×6 paper pack scraps that I am trying to use up. The balloon is from Kaisercraft I believe and the sentiment and star are from my stash. I hope you like it and 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!
and we’re gonna get married…….well, not really. Not for a couple more years to renew my vows on the beach in Cuba anyway.
It our challenge for you at 4 Crafty Chicks this week…..WEDDING!
I love wedding cards. I can go as clean and simple or embellished as I want..lots of bows and pearls and such.
Here is my card for you today. It’s another Pinterest inspired project (man I have been spending way too much time on Pinterest lately but I just can’t help it!!!!)
I went old school with just card stock on this one. I embossed the banners for some texture and only added minimal embellishments with the cute ribbon and pearls. Some punches for a bit of layering as well. I hope you like it. I thought it turned out really well
Be sure to stop by the blog today and see all the great projects from the DT for you this week. I bet you will be inspired
So how thrilled am I, that I have joined the awesome team at Red Carpet Studio!!!! Movies and scrapbooking..can it get any better! I am so excited to join these ladies and I know you will have fun joining in the challenges we’ve got planned for you.
Our challenge this week is based on the movie:
I personally have not seen this one, but I’m sure that it is something my little guy would like! Our challenge for you is to use snow/snowflakes on your project and share it with us on the blog.
We also have a great sponsor for this challenge:
SpiegelMom Scraps is offering a gift certificate for $15 off any $20 purchase at her Etsy Shop.
Here is my layout for you!
I used some paper from my Frosted by Fancy Pants. I also used some thickers and glittered snowflake brads from my stash. The big blue snowflakes is a die in my collection. These gorgeous photos were taken at Banff when we were there in December for my staff Christmas party.
Thanks for stopping by and please check out the blog and all the great DT projects for you this week.
Happy Happy Joy Joy! Next Friday I am off to sunny Cuba for our annual trip. CANNOT wait. We still have cold and snow here, big surprise right????
Ok on to this week’s challenge for 4 Crafty Chicks. Beautiful bows! I suck, bigtime with bows! They never look right so I invested in the bowmaker and it was the best $6 I ever spent! I use it all the time.
Here is my card for you today
The DP is just some scraps left over from all the Christmas Cards that I have been making. I cut out the mittens and the scarf from my Winter Wonderland cartridge. The twine is from my stash as well as the JOY sticker. I hope you like it. Please stop by the blog and play along with us this week.
