2 Crafty Critters

Challenge # 53 is up over on the 2 Crafty Critters blog and this month we are being sponsored by Sheepski Designs!

Something a bit different this month.  We’re partnering with Double Troubleand here’s a bit about their theme which runs from August 1 through August 19.Challenge #90 

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker – says, “Cleo, my purr-ty furbaby, is excited that August 8th is International Cat Day.  She’s “feline” that purr-haps it’s time for us to do something claw-some.  Cleo wants to celebrate all of her fur-ends by creating a project that includes any baby animal, e.g. kitten, puppy, chick, elephant.  She thinks this challenge is a paw-sibility, it’s purr-fect and will be pun for all.” 
You can paws here… OR … use Twisted Sister’s optional twist for an additional chance to our random draw.     


Thing 2:  Double Trouble
says, “Is this fur real? Let’s paws… I think I need a cat-titude adjustment. As long as mew have included a cute or baby animal, do not fur-get to enter your project HERE at 2CraftyCritterCrazies. I’m sure they will also like to see your claw-some projects.”  Don’t paws here but,  check out Cleo’s ‘Mew and Your Paw-some Pet” additional Special Random Draw located after the Design Team’s inspirational projects.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister says, “Paw-don me, are you kitten me?  This is hiss-terical!  I am purr-ple with laughter.   Let’s see if mew  can come up with a pun for your baby animal or feel free to use one of ours.  Have some pun with this optional twist.  
And you’re already entering at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies so pop on over to Double Trouble and enter their challenge, too.  If it fits ours, it will fit their theme!  😀

I’m using the SheepSki Designs Image ” Dragons Fly”. I thought it would be fun because I don’t have any dragons!

Ya, you’re not seeing things. That’s some Echo Park and Doodlebug in there. Just when you thought it was gone! I colored the image with my copics and then cut them out and popped them up . I also added some Nuevo drops and some random word stickers I had.

Come play along with us this month. You have until August 25th to enter!

Here’s our inspiration piece for you!

For my card I really liked that green/black/orange color combo so I started with that. I was also drawn to the skeleton.

Using just some scraps I decided to create this little card! I think it turned out really well. Be sure to head to our blog and check out how the rest of the DT interpreted the inspiration piece and to play along with us. Our challenge is always anything goes, you just have to be inspired by the image. Have fun!

UYS #427 Summer Fun

Hello one and all! Summer is in full swing right now and so is our new challenge at Use Your Stuff...our theme is Summer Fun!! Create a project that screams summer fun to you!

I created this fun card to celebrate a Summer birthday!~

I love pairing the Echo Park plaids and the Doodlebug stickers together as you can see and I also used a fun new die from Craft Addicts for all the squares. I replaced some of the missing black ones with the plaid paper to add some color.

So be sure to head to the blog and play along with us for our challenge!

Well I’m back in town and I got a lot done in terms of scrapbooking while at the farm. About 3 layouts and 9 cards which is the most I’ve worked on in awhile! Most of these you will see in upcoming posts once I get them photographed.

On to this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I really liked this sketch! I used one of the SCT samplers I took with me and created this fun Christmas in July card. I belive this one is from the Pinkfresh Holiday Vibes collection which was in the December 2018 sampler.

I had limited supplies at the farm so I created this card using just the papers that were in the sampler and then some enamel dots! I cut out the little houses from a sheet of the paper and also the sentiment was a paper as well. I think it turned out really well.

Head on over to the blog and see how the rest of the DT has created with this sketch this week!

Greetings from Portreeve Saskatchewan! I’m at the farm this week for some R&R with my family! I do have this week’s sketch ready to go for you from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Love this! ok, yep. Another Doodlebug Designs creation! 🙂 I promise I will have some different ones for you next week! 🙂

This one has lots of layers and that those little blocks on the bottom could be anything! The DT has some great ideas for this sketch so be sure to check them out on the blog!

Use Your Stuff # 427- Summer Fun

Hey there! So it’s been a very long time since I’ve joined in on a challenge for Use Your Stuff but I hope to be doing more of them!

This week’s challenge is Summer fun….anything really to do with summer! I’m sure many of us are enjoying the sunny days right now.

I created a fun card for a summer birthday!

I got this fun new die from Crafty Addicts and I really wanted to use it! I cut it out just in black cardstock and then placed some of the squares back in. I then added some fun Doodlebug stickers. The plaid paper is my go to from Lawn Fawn! The sentiment is from one of my SCT stamp sets. I really like this die and I think I will be using it a lot.

Come on over to the UYS blog, see what the DT has created and please play along with us!

TMS #614

Hello Friends! Here we are in mid-July and I am getting ready to head to my farm for 10 days! Super excited to relax and do nothing but scrap or read! Maybe even catch up on some of my scrappy YouTube videos on my Save to Watch Later list!

Ok, on to this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I really liked this one!

Now I’ve still been playing with some bits and bobs of Doodlebug Designs that I have because it just makes me feel all summery and happy!

Now I really love pairing my Doodlebug with my Lawn Fawn! I think that both companies blend so well together as you can see here! I used some Doodlebug stickers as well as some Lawn Fawn & Doodlebug papers. The enamel hearts are from my stash but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were from one of these 2 companies.

I also used a sentiment stamp that is a favorite of mine and I received in a SCT sampler. I’ve used those stamps sooo many times.

I hope you enjoyed my card and the DT has really outdone themselves this time so be sure to stop by to see what they have to show you!

2CCC: #52

Ok one and all! We are up and running over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies with this month’s new challenge! We are being sponsored by Jan’s Digi Stamps.

We are sponsored this month by Jan’s Digi Stamps and they generouslyprovided images to our DT use on their inspiration projects.  

I used the Merry Chris-Moose digi for my Christmas in July card. Our theme is actually ANYTHING GOES but I thought it would be fun!

I colored him just with my copics. The DP is from Miss Kate Cuttables…i thought the buffalo print went so well with his shift! I also added just a little bit of glitter paper for an added accent. Our DT has some really great projects for you to see using a variety of images from the shop so be sure to check them out!
