I heart you

I’m a bit behind the ball here!  Our new challenge is up on the Use Your Stuff blog and Tammy C’s challenge is to use hearts on your project.

That shouldn’t be too hard considering that it is getting close to Valentine’s Day and many of us are working on VDay related projects right!

Here is a card I created! I’ve been hanging around in the Cricut Design space this last week seeing what I can play around with and this was one of the cards that we could create!

The DP in the back is from Papermania in a collection called Red Hot.  I got this as a gift years ago and have been trying to use it up!  The heart hands are from the Cricut design space (i’m not sure which cartridge it is from as it was one of those Make it Now projects)  and then I went over it all with my wink of Stella pen for a little glitz.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us!

A wee Valentine

So today I am playing along with the Paper Play Sketches for this week.

sketch

 

I have a bunch of Valentine’s stuff that I haven’t used since well last Valentine’s day so i thought I would break it out.  I used the Love Me Do collection from My Mind’s Eye from a few years ago.

I used my Cricut to cut out the Cupid Bear from Teddy Bear Parade.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.

Just for some extra texture and dimension I used some glitter paper for his little toga and stickles for his nose and the bow & arrow.

I hope you like it and you still have some time to play along with the sketch!

Fall Fun

It is another challenge up at the Use Your Stuff blog today!  It’s Fall Y’all…although here in Calgary, it’s more wintery than fall-y 🙂

I created this layout using some old Hot off The Press papers that I wanted to use up.  I’ve had them forever!  The title is printed off of the internet and the leaves were done with my  EK Success maple leaf punch! (this is one of my favorite punches).   All the rest of the little embellies are from my stash!  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog this week!20161104_085802

UYS Challenge # 239 – Heritage

Ok, so it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on a challenge at UYS..ack!  Life does seem to feel busy and yet not….until it’s time for things like this and I have nothing prepared because I was doing so much other stuff!

Anyway, our challenge on the blog today is the theme Heritage…it could mean some old papers and supplies you have yet to use, or perhaps an old photo that you found, maybe it is some vintage looking ephemera that would look great on a card….what does it mean to you!

For me, I found some crazy old paper from over 20 years ago that I have been hoarding obvously!  So I finally decided to use it with some old pics from my 3rd trip to the UK back in 2000!

The British paper is so old I can’t even remember who makes it anymore!  The dots and stripes I believe is from Simple Stories…

The die cuts are from Miss Kate Cuttables, thickers for the alphas and then some internet fonts for the journalling.

Make sure you stop by the blog to play along with our challenge this week and to see what the other DT have created for you!

World Card Making Day!

So this is the first time in a long time where I am able to participate in World Card Making Day!  I am going to be surfing around blog land trying to find challenges to do!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps has a weekly challenge to help celebrate…it’s holidays! Create a card for any holiday and bonus if you use their sketch of the month (which I did of course!)

 

 

So I decided to do a Halloween card!

Zelda the Zombie!

I have a lot of Halloween supplies but don’t do near enough layouts or cards with them!  I used the KKS stamp Zelda Zombie for mine…the paper and embellishments I don’t know the manufacturer for as I just have bits and bobs in my folder!  The die cut is Taylored Expressions though!  It’s a fun little die and this is the first time I’ve used it!  Crazy!

I colored with my copics of course!  I’m still learning coloring so pardon the not so smooth look!  LOL

I hope you like it and I hope you are playing along with challenges today!
