Bright and Beautiful

Hooray for Friday! ¬†Weekend! So sad that we are down to our final weekends of the summer ūüė¶

Ok it’s my team’s week at Brown Sugar and our sponsor this week is

My Besties!

We have a really fun color challenge for you this week! Look how bright this is!! Just perfect for your summer projects!

So for my card this week, I dabbled in some watercoloring. ¬†I say dabbled because I’m not very good at it, but it was fun to play! ¬†I used my Sakura Create watercolor markers as well as some copics and a few of the distress oxide inks!

My DP is from My Minds Eye Рan older collection called Notable.  I also just added a few little sequins for that pop of red.

So for this card, I found some Stampin Up paper I received in a swap and used that for my DP.  I colored the image with my copics and also a bit of wink of stella in white and blue to add a bit of shine. The flowers and blig were from a swap and the resin flowers are just from my stash.

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!
