Today is a Good Day (SGC)

As you are reading this, I am in deep preparation for my weekend crop with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine…although it is actually called the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival, we just call it Carnival!  It’s on Friday & Saturday this week.  My two friends and I have been going for several years and it is one of the 5 crops that we attend yearly!  It’s a big deal! 🙂

Southern Girls Challenge is new today….Team Trace is wanting to see spots!  Spots & Dots is our theme this week!

Our sponsors are


My image is from Paper Shelter called Hammock Days.  I colored her with my copics and then fussy cut and laid her out against my embossed dot background.  I added a few banners from some scraps in my stash that had some small dots on them, and then a cute little word tag from Tim Holtz.




A sweet little card for a sweet image.  I hope you will stop by the blog and play along with us this week!

Talk to you soon, and happy crafting!



Color Crazy #36

Hello lovlies!  Welcome to this week’s installment of the color crazy challenge!  As always our theme is anything goes!

This week our sponsor is the awesome Knitty Kitty!~

I’m using an image called Build a  Snow Scene Quintuplet.  I think this little flamingo is awesome!


The DP is from Michaels called Ice Crystals and also Gingerbread Cottage.  I colored the image with my copics and then added some Wink of Stella to the skates and the hat.  I added just a few sequins and a brad from my stash to finish it off.

Be sure to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you and I hope you will play along with us!


You are my sunshine

Hello all!

Just a fun card today…I am in a swap on a FB group called Canadians Crafting with Paper.  Our theme is BEACH.

So, here’s the card I created for my partner.  I did a little bit of mixed media for the background using some of the Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then cut a circle out with my sizzix die and added some sequins, pearls and glitter to create a shaker.  I put a little bit of the turquoise cardstock behind the shakers so it blended a bit better.   I colored my image from CC Designs (DUDE – I actually cracked this one open for the first time although I think I’ve had it for at least 2 or 3 years in my stash!) with my copics and stamped the sentiment from Hello Bluebird.  A few enamel dots from Michael’s and voila!  I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I hope my partner likes it!




See you soon!

C4G -Bugz!

Hello one and all!  Did you head on over to the Cardz 4 Guyz blog yet!  It’s a great challenge…It’s all about the bugs!

Get out those images or pics of your favorite creepy crawlies and let us see them!  Absolutely any insect ( sometimes even non-insects like slugs, snails and spiders).

I know it’s still August, but I just felt like making a Halloween card!  So I created this fun little guy using an image from my Cricut Air


The DP is just from my halloween stash and then the little sentiment is a rub on from Tim Holtz.  I added some glitter to his hat buckle and then a few enamel dots to finish it off.  I think he looks more cute than creepy but it totally makes me smile.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with this week!


80s Lady – Southern Girls Challenge

Hey everyone! I’m happy to be doing my first post for the Southern Girls Challenge! I recently made the Design Team and am super excited to be a part of such a wonderful group.

Our Sponsor this week is

Our challenge for you this week is called ” We All Love a Little Metal Now and Then”.  In case you didn’t guess, the challenge is to use metal on your project!

Here’s mine


These photos were from the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival from 2016.  It’s was an 80s theme – right up my alley!  I used a bunch of different papers from my stash, as well as a ticket that I created at Crop & Create 3 years ago from Vicki Boutins Layers class! I thought the colors worked with this layout!.  My metal component are some metal brads in my clusters, as well as a cute little metal clip!  I’ve not used brads in awhile, so it was nice to break them out again!

This layout was also created for my August SCT 365 Class!  I’ve missed a few months so I’m going to be working  backward a bit to catch up!

I hope you like the layout.  Don’t forget to stop by the blog here to play along with this week’s challenge.

CCCC – Be a Unicorn

Good Morning!  It’s still crazy smoky here in Calgary due to the BC wildfires.  We have an air advisory warning and its like giant campfire cloud over the city.

Our new anything goes challenge is up at Color Crazy Craft Challenge today.  This week’s sponsor is Oddball Stamps!

Visit our lovely Sponsor

I’m using this adorable stamp called Magical Pile of Cute!  It most certainly is!  My goal was to make this a simple card as I am sending it to my Baker’s Dozen partner, so it can’t be too thick.  I colored the image with my copics.  I then took my glossy accents to all of my unicorns and added Wink of Stella to the horns.  I also added some Nuvo dots to the pom poms of the sprites.  The DP is just from my stash and I thought it was fun and whimsical to go with the stamp.   I hope you like it and drop by the blog to see the rest of the DT projects and to play along with us.



Perk Up! C4G challenge

Morning Everyone!  We just got back yesterday from a week of camping out at Big Knife Provincial Park which was great fun – except for the wasps!  My poor son got stung 3x!

That fits right into this week’s challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz – Get Well Soon!  I’m sure my son could use a Get Well Card!



Today’s card pairs an image from Kraftin Kimmie designs with some Stampin Up Designer Paper.  I have just a bit of this coffee paper left and I think I am going to make up a batch of cards to get it finished.  The stamp is called One Cup at A Time, and I use it a lot!  The sentiment I printed off of the internet and then added some hearts with my little heart punch.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to join us for this week’s challenge! Can’t wait to see what you create!
