Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

Vaycay fun!

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)

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!

Boys and their Toys

Friday is here again, and I’m posting on the Sunsational Stamps blog today with my inspiration piece.

Today I am using the image from the Scrapping with Lisa designs called Jimmy.  I thought he was a fun masculine image to play with.

Rather than coloring with my copics like I normally do, I decided to go with some watercoloring today, just because I’ve not done it in awhile.  So as you can see, like a watercolor painting, some of the areas are darker and some have varying degrees of lighter color.  It was fun to get back into it.

I went with lots of layers and just a few embellishments with this one today.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the store and shop around!  Remember, tomorrow is our blog hop so pop by and see what I have for you then!

Get Well Soon

Another Friday is here and Tammy here with another card design for you.  If you hop over to the Sunsational Stamps blog, I have my post on.   I am using the Hopping you Get Better Soon Frog. He is just adorable!

I used some Origami paper that a friend sent to me from Japan. I loved the flowers!  I colored him with my copics and then went over the lily pad with some glossy accents (to make it look wet  :)  ).  I added a bit of ribbon and some sequins for a bit of dimension.  I used my Sizzix to cut him out.

I hope that you enjoy  him and don’t forget to stop by the store and check out all the great images that we have for you!

Besties!

It’s a new challenge day at Red Carpet Studio and I am hosting this week~  My Challenge is based on a movie that I love

MV5BMjA5MTEzMzE4MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDAzMTUyMg@@._V1_SY317_CR6,0,214,317_AL_

In this 1964 beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond — one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor (Jeremy Brett).
THE CHALLENGE: CREATE A “GIRLY” PROJECT WITH LOTS OF LAYERS.

I still have a lot of product left from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan set that I won a long time ago.  I thought that it would be a great set to use for this challenge.  It has all kinds of fun embellishments and paper.  I also really love the colors.  I used a sketch that I found on Pinterest.  It’s from Scrap Paper Scissors!  A great little sketch!

No Lion, I love you

Happy Friday…day before Valentine’s Day!  Tammy here with another fun image for you.  I picked this No Lion, I love you from the store because I thought it would make an adorable Valentine’s Day card!  I love the store example which is in pink and red (perfect for Valentine’s) but I needed mine to match my DP so I went with some yellow.

The flowers are from Walmart and the little pearl dots were in my stash.  I colored him with my Copics and the DP is from My Mind’s Eye. I just cut the hearts out using some of the left over paper.  I added just a bit of glossy accents on his heart as well.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out this adorable image in the store here.

Beautiful Boy

It’s our first post with our new DT at Use Your Stuff this week!  We are so excited to feature some of our new designers.  I am hosting the challenge this week.  Inspired by a Song.

For my challenge I chose Beautiful Boy by John Lennon.  I am a proud mama.  I love my little guy to death so it’s no wonder that a lot of my layouts feature him.

20150130_154441

This layout I used a new technique that was featured on the Cardmaker blog.  A starburst.  It was super easy to do and I thought it turned out really well on my layout.  The DP is from October Afternoon.   The ribbon and wood veneer as well as the thickers are all from my stash.

I hope you will stop by the blog and play along with us!

Snowflake

Welcome to February!  Already can you believe it?  Soon it will be my birthday :)

We begin a new challenge on the Red Carpet Studio blog this week.  Our theme comes from the movie A Winter’s Tale. I actually won an advanced screening to see this movie.  It was ok but not necessarily one of my favorites.  I did enjoy it though.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. (Official Movie Site)

THE CHALLENGE: Use some snowflakes and white paint.  Gesso or molding/modeling paste will also work just as long as its white.

I have started creating Christmas cards again as I start getting ready for the new craft season towards the end of the year.

Here is the card that I created

20150130_154407

Isn’t he cute?  He’s called snowflake and he is from Sunsational Stamps .  I had some white puffy paint which I used on my bigger snowflake and then some adirondak paint on the littler ones.  The DP is from my stash as is the Merry Christmas peel and stick.  The image is colored with my copics. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us at Red Carpet Studio this week.  We have a wonderful prize up for grabs!

RCS #85 New Years Eve

Welcome to the first post of 2015!  I want to wish you and yours a very wonderful New Year!

As we start off the new year, we have a new challenge at Red Carpet Studio, along with some new faces in our Design Team.

Our challenge this week is based on the movie New Years Eve

New_Year's_Eve_Poster

Intertwining stories promise love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and more for a number of New Yorkers on the celebrated night. A rock star (Jon Bon Jovi) and his ex-lover (Katherine Heigl) clash at an exclusive party; a singer (Lea Michele) becomes stranded with a killjoy (Ashton Kutcher) on the way to a New Year’s gig; a nurse (Halle Berry) stays with a dying patient (Robert De Niro) as he tries to hang on long enough to see the ball drop in Times Square one last time.

 THE CHALLENGE: USE SOME STARS AND SOMETHING NEW

I created a card for this challenge using some new DP that I picked up (yeah! Like I need more) and a new image that was sent to me in a swap.  I hope that you like it and please play along with us this week.  We’ve got great inspiration and a sponsor for this week’s challenge! You need to play! :)

The Cake.

Been to the Red Carpet Studio blog yet?  You might get hungry if you do!  Our challenge this week is Food!  We are basing our theme this go round on the movie Julie & Julia!

julie and julia

I did a wedding layout this week.  This was our wedding cake.  I had originally wanted it to be blue & green, our colors but Neil disagreed.  So, we went with an all white cake and decorated the table instead.  It turned out great and the cake was delish!!!!20141115_1604031

I hope you will join our challenge this week as we have a prize sponsored by Jack Bear Stamps which is pretty darn cool!
