Hey everyone! I’ve not fallen off the face of the earth! Summer is busy for me with my son and family time so I’ve not been doing a lot of crafting. I’ve got a few projects that I will share soon that I have been working on. Challenges will be starting up soon at Use Your Stuff so stay tuned for more news!
Ok..so has it really been 2 months since I’ve posted. That tells you how much time I’ve had for scrapping/cardmaking lately! It seems everything gets busier and busier and yet, I wonder where the heck all my time goes!
Our new challenge is up at Use Your Stuff, our last one for the summer! It is an anything goes challenges with prizes being given out at the end of the summer, so join in!
While I was at the scrapshotz crop in May, I made this layout of my son in the leaves. I had realized that I didn’t have any fall pictures of Riley to use up with the tonz of autumn stash I had, so I purposely took pics. I couldn’t even begin to imagine who made the supplies I’ve used, that tells you how long I’ve had it.
I hope you like it! I’m hoping to post more over the summer as well!
It is our 100th challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week! Woohoo!!! We are very excited!
Our challenge this week is based on the movie The Iron Giant

Here is my Project for the hop I was given the FLOWER POWER SET
which can be found in the store here
I created a cute little wall hanging for my project today. I started out with a upcycled cardbaord piece from some flowers I bought at michaels. I inked it with some spritzes and inked the edges with a little Walnut Stain from Ranger.
I then ran it through one of my cuttlebug folders for a bit more texture. I glued on a doily and then started layering my flower pieces. I added some glitter and stickles for a bit more shine and then a couple of little beads for that cute butterfly.
I used my crop a dile to pop a couple of holes in it and then threaded some ribbon in order for it to hang. I hope you like it!
Here is the line up for today’s Hop :

Hey Everyone! Another start to a wonderful weekend. My turn to post on the Sunsational Stamps Blog today!
I have another lovely digi image for you. I think she is just so cute!
This is the image I used from the store and it can be found here!
I adjusted mine a bit in my program so it’s not exactly the same but that is such a great thing about digi’s….you can adjust them to how you need them!
I colored the image in with my Copics and then added some pretty Easter paper for a background. Some borders with punched cardstock and ribbon as well as a diecut butterfly finish it off. I hope you like it and stop by the store and see all the fabulous Easter images that are there…they are just too darn cute!
Top o’ the morning to ya!
We have a great new challenge for you on the Red Carpet Studio blog today. Using The Lucky One as your inspiration (just in time for St. Patrick’s day).
Hello everyone!. Can you believe it is Daylight Savings this weekend? Then right around the corner is Spring! Weeeee!! The DT at Sunsational Stamps is going to be highlighting some of our fun Easter and Spring Stamps for you over the next week or so, to get you into the mood for nicer weather and all the buds and flowers blooming…Saying goodbye to winter for yet another year.
Happy Sunday and the first day of March if you can believe it! Wow, it feels like February flew by! We have a new challenge at Red Carpet Studio today! Yay!
Our inspiration this week is from Public Enemies (I must admit, this is one of the few movies I’ve not seen yet…surprisingly)
The Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s.
THE CHALLENGE: The Good Old Days….Use a distress technique on your project.
(Please click HERE for our 2015 challenge guidelines)
So I have a fun vacation layout for you today….
Anyone who knows me, knows that I hoard paper like you wouldn’t believe. I always find it is so hard to use the cute stuff because you don’t want to cut it apart! So I hunkered down and got too it. I used the On the Boardwalk Collection from Graphic 45 which I thought would go great for this beach photo. The orange dinghy I just cut out with my cricut and for some fun I added some burlap! I distressed the edges of my pages and inked them up with my distress ink. All the bits and bobs are just from my stash. I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and see the rest of the great projects we have for you, as well as to enter to win a fabulous prize for this week’s challenge. I look forward to stopping by your blogs to check out what you create!
