Scrappy Fun

Happy weekend all!  It’s a long weekend here in Canada, but unfortunately, I have to work so no camping for me. BOO!  I have been hard at work clearing off my scrap space as I am preparing to make a schwack of cards for Ronald McDonald House in BC as part of a group in Splitcoaststampers.  Anyway..I’ve had this pile of scraps and bits and bobs on my desk FOREVER because I didn’t want to throw them out until I tried to use them up a bit.

I wanted to share with you a few of the card I made with the scraps & die cuts and some inspiration from Pinterest.

Penny’s challenge # 340

Happy Wednesday!  Midweek already and heading into August! Why does the summer go by so quickly?

Our new challenge of Anything Goes is up at Penny’s Paper Crafty this week and we have 2 wonderful sponsors that have graciously supplied some fun prizes for lucky winners!

The first is Oddball Art who is giving one lucky winner 3 images from their store.

The second is Sparkle & Sprinkle and they are giving a $15 gift code to use in their store!

I am using a S&S image this week called Wilson.  Ok, I think he is adorable and this one actually comes with a couple of friends! It also comes in pre-colored and black and white.

Digital Stamp Set 746 Wilson [Digi746b]

For my card, I used the pre-colored image and paired it with the Tim Holtz Crazy birds accessories dies.  I used the little party hat and the balloons.  The DP is just some scraps left over from my stash and I used a bit of twine for the strings.  I love how it turned out

For You

Our new challenge is up at Brown Sugar Designs this week.  It’s an anything goes challenge and our great sponsor this week is

 Scrap N Dipity

I have a feeling your prize is going to have to do with getting some free images from this really great store, but you will need to stop by the blog to know for sure and to play along!

For this week’s challenge I created a tag.  I had a specific tag in mind…I am in a swap on Splitcoaststampers and it is a ‘color wheel’ swap, so my partner wanted items in a certain palette….in this case coral/grey/red/yellow/green.   So I thought it would be fun to make a tag to go with her goodies that I bought using those colors!  The image is called Scrapbooking Christine and I tried to color her in the palette colors with my copics.  I also added a few little embellishment and then colored a wood tag that I had and stamped a little FOR YOU on it.  For a finishing touch, I added some twine, a little doily on the bottom and then went over everything with a Wink of Stella clear pen.  Just for a touch of shimmer…I hope she likes it!

It’s your turn to get creating and I will be excited to see what you are working on this week!  Happy Crafting Everyone!

The Money Shot

Hey all!  I wanted to share with you a layout I created for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival hosted each fall by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  It’s actually up on their Facebook Page today!

Registration for Carnival starts August 1st for this year.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year (the first time in 7 years) as that is the week that we are at Disneyland with our son.  Check out their blog for more information.  This is such a fun time!

 

I love this layout!  The journaling reads:  : We just have to have that one shot of the singer’s butt that just makes you snap it and say, oh Yeah! That’s the Money Shot”

We can’t help it, whenever we got to a concert we have to take a pic of the singers butts..it’s like a bad habit we can’t break!

I want to say the DP is Echo Park, but it might be October Afternoon…

Some of these lovelies include Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw,  Christ Young, Rob Thomas & Keith Urban!

It’s Friday Friday….

Hello peeps! Here it is Friday and I am actually on my way to Edmonton as you read this.  I’m heading up to see one of my all time favorite bands – Matchbox 20 perform live! I am super excited as this is a bucket list concert for me!  I broke my toe last week but I am not letting that stop me! That’s why they made pain meds and air casts!

That being said, it is still a fun day here too as it is a new challenge over at Brown Sugar.  This week’s sponsor is  Sheep Ski Designs, and the winner is going to get 3 digis of the winner’s choice from the store!

This week we have a color inspired challenge for you!  So use these colors to inspire your project this week!

 

Here’s my card using the Summer digi from the store!

I mostly used some papers from the Stampin Up Moonlight DP.  The image is colored with copics and the enamel dots are just from the dollar store.  I used sketch # 311 from Sketch Saturday for this one.

I hope you have a great weekend, and don’t forget to stop by the blog to see the other DT projects and to link up yours!

Coffee

It’s Wednesday my peeps!  It’s been a bit of an issue here, as I recently broke my toe and have not had much time to get scrappy between rest and pain meds!

I did want to share with you a fun card for this week’s challenge at Penny’s.  Our sponsors this week are

Little Blue Button  ($10 gift certificate for their online store)

and

Paper Shelter Paper Shelter    ($10 gift certificate for their online store)

Today I am using some images from Little Blue Button’s Coffee Love collection.

I used one of the sentiments as well as the coffee beans which I cut out individually.  I printed out the coffee cups 2x on some kraft cardstock and then again on some Your Next Stamp DP to do the centre pieces.  The background DP is from YNS’s Crazy for Coffee collection.  I used my white gel pen to color the tops of the coffee cups and to just add some faux stitching around the card.

I hope you like it and please stop by the blog to see the other great projects the DT has created from our wonderful sponsors this week!
