White Christmas

I know, no one wants to hear about Christmas at the beginning of April.  Don’t worry I hope to have some fun spring like projects for you as the month progresses.  In the meantime, our newest challenge is up at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and our theme is all white.  It’s ok to have a smidgen of of color but try to make it as much white as possible!

Here’s my card this month.  I got this gorgeous white snowflake in a swap that I have been dying to use.  I paired it with a snowfall embossing folder and the peace die from the Stampin Up Christmas Greetings thinlits.  I actually cut out about 5 of them and glued them together to give them a bit of dimension and texture.  To finish it off, I added some Nuvo dots.  I hope you like it, and please play along with us this month, to win our great prize!

The Music Moves Me

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 embellishement and die cut pieces from October Afternoon’s Saspirilla collection (I’ve been holding onto these for awhile now), and some recollections word chipboard as well as some Recollection word stickers.  The washi tape is just from my stash.

I hope you will play along with us on the blog! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Confetti

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.

Giraffe in Green

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!

 

Holidays in Red

It’s February!  I love February mainly because it is my birthday month!

Here is a quick little card for our Christmas Crafts All Year Round challenge for the month.  Our theme is RED.  Your project should show red as the predominant color.

All the elements for this card are just from my Christmas stash.  I used a project life card as the focal point and then just built around that using some DP, twine, a red doily and some bling.  Nothing fancy but definitely screams RED!  I hope you like it and please play along with us this month and show us your red creations!

 

KBD- Spotlight

Happy Sunday everyone!  We are well in January now and I hope that it is starting off great for you.

It’s my spotlight day on the Kitty Bee Designs blog, and I decided to make a fun Valentine’s day card with the cute Sushi Buddies, which can be found in the store here.

I used the papers from a couple of DP’s I got last year in a swap – Pebbles My Funny Valentine and also My American Crafts xoxo.  I also pulled out a fun heart doily from my stash.

I colored the images with my copics, and the sentiment I just printed out on my computer.  I also added a simple heart brad and few small gems to finish it off.  I hope you like it!  Don’t forget to stop by the Kitty Bee blog to play along in our current challenge.

 

 

 

CCAYR- A Wintery Thanks

Here we are! Our first challenge of 2018 on the Christmas Cards All Year Round blog!  Our theme is THANKS!  In keeping with our challenge, it has to have a Christmasy/winter theme to it.

I had fun creating this card – I used some left over pieces from a card kit that I got from Scrapshotz.  The die cut deer I received in a swap and I love it!  I added some glittered accents in red for a pop of color.  Also, the thanks is from Stampin -up I believe. A few little gems to finish it off.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and play along with us! We can’t wait to see what you create!
