Hello one and all! I have a new layout for you today to go along with our new challenge up at Use Your Stuff! This week’s theme is border punches!
I’ve not been using mine regularly so it was nice to pull them out and play a bit.
My layout today is also the March Scrapbook & Cards Today 365 2018 class. I must say, now that I have committed to doing these classes, I have been finding my love for scrapbooking again, and it’s a nice change from doing cards all the time.
For this layout I pulled out a kit that I had created several months ago for a crop and just never got around to using. The papers are from Everyday Circus by Fancy Pants, as well as some Simple Stories and Heidi Swapp mixed in. My border punch is EK Success (and I had to practically blow the dust off of it!.)
The embellishments stars are cut from the DP and I also used a few pieces from October Afternoon’s Saspirilla collection (I’ve been holding onto these for awhile now), and some recollections word chipboard.
I hope you will play along with us on the blog! Can’t wait to see what you create!
Can you believe it is March already? One quarter through 2018! Wow! I know we just had Christmas not too long ago, but the beginning of the month marks a new challenge for Christmas Crafts All Year Long. Since I work on my cards for craft fairs all year long, I have a new card for you!
Our theme this month is Flowers! You can create any Christmas project you wish, as long as you have flowers on it.
For my card I used just things that I’ve had in my stash. I’m slowly getting it down, and I find I have more Christmas stuff than anything else. I’m not sure where the DP is from since it was part of a swap from SplitCoast Stampers, but the rub on (yes! I said rub on, does anyone else still use these?? ) is from Making Memories. The flowers are Prima. The small bling are just from the $$ store. It’s just a simple card with a great design and easy to duplicate or mass produce.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the team has going for you this month!
Hey you! Thanks for stopping by! Today I’ve got a fun card for you for my guest spot on the Color Crazy Challenge Blog. I’m using an image from Lemon Shortbread called Hot Cuppa Girl. I just colored her with some basic markers. I wasn’t really going for any shading or definition. My DP is just random sheets from swaps that I have done recently. I paired it with a sentiment from the Cup of Tea set from My Favorite Things. A few Nuvo dots to finish it off and voila! I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!
Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve not been on much, lots going on behind the scenes in my house that I’ve had to deal with.
Today is a new challenge on the Color Crazy Challenge Blog on which I am pleased to be a guest designer.
Our challenge this week is sponsored by Creatful Heart Stamps
I used the poppy digi stamp for my card this week, but I really wanted to play around with colors so I added some blue to the red (yes in my world poppies are blue!). I just used some DP that I’ve had in my stash, little bits and pieces that I’ve received from swaps. I’ve added some Wink of Stella to give a bit of sparkle to the flowers and then some Nuvo drops. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp.
I hope you like it and feel free to play along. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you!
I don’t usually make resolutions but this year, the only one I made was to actually do some of the online classes that I had purchased over the last year or so. I have 6 from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!
The newest one – SCT-365 2018 is a monthly class where you can do a 2 pg layout as well as a card, designed by some of the biggest and best in the Papercrafting world!
I am so happy to be on track for this year…I’ve done both January and now February! I’m slowly working through a bunch of photos and kits, the majority of which are from trips so you are going to see a lot of those in the upcoming months!
These classes are super easy to do – with pictures, detailed instructions, free cut files and exclusive sketches! You can find all the details here! Give one a try! You won’t be disappointed and you will be pushing through layouts and cards in no time!
Hello my darlings! It’s my challenge up on the Use Your Stuff blog today. It’s all about weather! We are looking to see what your weather related projects are this week, it could be a layout or card about weather, some weather embellishments, like clouds, raindrops, sunshine or yes, even snow.
Today I am using a stamp & sentiment from Kraftin Kimmie called Look for Rainbows. I have had this for a bit and finally cracked it open. It’s such a cute little stamp! I colored her with my copics and then I used some fun cloud DP from Little Yellow Bicycle called The Escape. A titch of cord and some bling to finish it off. I also gave the umbrella a kiss of Wink of Stella.
I hope you will play along with us on the blog today! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Happy Friday one and all! Today is a new challenge on the Kitty Bee Designs blog! Our theme this week is a really fun one – SAFARI ANIMALS! Lions and Tigers and Bears oh my!
I’m using a fun image from our sponsor The Paper Shelter. It’s Giraffes on Holiday and it’s these really adorable giraffes during different holidays in the year.
I know it’s early but I really wanted to do the St. Patrick’s day one… Eventually I will have to jump on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon, but not quite yet. I chose to go with a pre-colored one for my card and just added a few items from my stash. I don’t have a lot of St. Patrick’s day stuff so I just pulled a few things from a bag that I add to throughout the year that I think might work.
I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us this week. We can’t see what wild safari animals you find in your stash!
