Creatively Me

Just another day in my life

Just catching up

It’s been a bit busy for me this week with work and a sick household so I don’t have any projects for you, however there is still lots of fun to be had.

Use your Stuff has a fun new sketch challenge to play along with and Red Carpet Studio is celebrating the Oscars.

Come check them out and play along!  Get those creative juices flowing

Just a note as well….the new issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine comes out this week and if you are flipping through the pages, you will see that I was published not once, not twice but three times with some cute Riley layouts!  I’d love for you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of them!

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.

Double Love

I am late..so late with this post.  As you saw in my previous post, I did a double easel card that I learned while in my Stampin Up class. (I forgot to put up the little easel with the birds on it when I took the picture, but that is where your sentiment goes.)

I have another one to share with you.  This is the actual card that we did in class!

I’m showing you this for our challenge this week at Use Your Stuff….the theme…LOVE of course!  It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s day, but whatever love means to you!  The DT has some really awesome projects on the blog for you to check out.

The heart die is from stampin up and the rest of the product especially the DP came from Michaels.   I hope you like it and there are still a few days left to play along in our challenge.

Double Easel

So I went to my Stampin UP card class on Tuesday and Susan had this great double easel card that we made.  I just love learning new fancy folds and techniques.  Totally fun!  Here is one that I created for the Stuck On U Sketches challenge this month.  It’s all about the key to your heart, so keys, locks and hearts!

The Happy Couple

Hi Everyone!  Tammy here and I am really excited to be a part of the Sunsational Stamps team and to bring you my first project as a DT member.  I saw the Bluebird of Happiness on the Scrapping with Lisa site and thought it would make such a cute wedding card.  Soon it will be the season for those pretty weddings, and it’s always great to have cards on hand.

The DP is from October Afternoon, and unfortunately I can’t remember the line it is.  I used my Spellbinders dies to cut out the scalloped and regular squares.  The image is colored with my copics and then I went over just a few areas with my Wink of Stella clear marker to give it a bit of sparkle.  (It doesn’t seem to show well in the photo though).  The sentiment is from Stampin Up (Labels of Love) and the little sparkly hearts are just from my stash.  I hope you enjoy this card and don’t forget to stop by the store and see what inspires your next project!

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.

download

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!
