KBD #105

Morning all!

Happy Friday and here are the deets on our new challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs!

Our sponsors this week are Fred She Said

and also Just Me Digital Stamps 

Our theme this week is : Kiddy Cards (card for a kid, image of a kid or kid’s things like toys, games, etc)

This is a pretty easy challenge, given that we have halloween coming up, who doesn’t love to see cute kids in costumes, right?  All the details are on the blog!

So I am using an adorable image from Fred She Said.   You know I love precolored digis, so this one is just adorable.  It does also come in a naked (ie b&w, or non colored) format as well.  I think it is Nolan & the Bullfrog

I just used some scraps from my bin and added just some twine and a few sequins.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple to highlight the image.  I hope you like it!

 

Please don’t forget you have until 11:55 HST tonight to get your comments in to win some digis in our New Release Blog Hop!

Hi!  Welcome to my part in the UYS summer blog hop…you should have arrived from   Christine’s blog.  If you haven’t you can go back to the start of the hop on the UYS blog so you don’t forget anyone….all the links are at the bottom of this post too, just in case you get lost!

I love summer!  Here in Calgary, in my house anyway, summer means camping and a lot of time outdoors.  We have a lot of winter here in Canada..sometimes up to 8 or 9 months of it, so when that warm weather hits, you know we are outside!

Summer always makes me think of fun, bright colors. Everything seems so much more vibrant and alive!  So for my project, I wanted to share with you some embellishments that I made in a class I took at Crop & Create with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine.   The class was hosted by one of my crafting idols Vicki Boutin!  We were using her new line of products from American Crafts and they are just so fun…there are stickers and water color stickers, die cuts, crayons and oh so much more!  These embellishments are made with fun, vibrant uses of color.  They give you the happy feeling inside and that’s what summer is all about!  Happy happy fun fun!! 🙂

We were learning to just have fun and create layers and textures to make some knock out embellishments.  Don’t throw away those scraps…instead, grab them along with some adhesive, some pop dots and whatever little bits and bobs you might have around and create some amazing embellishments while you binge watch your favorite shows!

I hope you enjoy these and I hope you will create some of your own to use on some great layouts or cards. Now you are off to Majo’s blog  to see what great summer fun she has for you but the list is below just in case you lose your way!

Lollipop Crafts 2 Year Blogaversary Hop!!

Lollipop Crafts is celebrating 2 years of challenge blogging!!!  Wow, doesn’t feel like it’s been 2 years, but it really has been according to the calendar!  Time surely flies by when you’re having fun!!  We have a special treat for you in honor of our marking.  A BLOG HOP!!!   yep, filled with lots of surprises!  The blog hop runs from today August 1st until August 4th.  So if you don’t have time to check out everyone today, you can come back tomorrow and finish the hop.

If you hopped onto my blog by chance, PLEASE head back to Lollipop Crafts blog and begin your celebrating there.  There’s so much going on you don’t want to miss out on fun and surprises.   You should have reached my blog from Juelmarie’s  blog.

In addition to our celebration and blog hopping fun, we have a SPECIAL challenge just for this celebration too.  Hurry though, this challenge ends on the 4th at Midnight PST as well.  The challenge is CELEBRATION!!  Any celebration that is, birthday, anniversary, new baby, wedding and more!  Link up your celebration creations to InLinkz on the LC blog.

Just so you know, there are hidden prizes around the DT blogs, so don’t miss out on visiting everyone and there are 2 prizes on the LC blog – one for a random hopper who leaves a comment on the LC blog and one for participating in the challenge.

As well, just for this hop we have a fabulous guest designer joining us!  It’s Barbara from Forgotten Scraps!  You are going to meet her at the end of the hop!

So I’ve got a great couple of cards for you for this Celebration!  I am not going to tell you who my sponsor is for it!  I am hoping that you can guess by looking at the image!

Leave me a comment telling me who you think my sponsor is, and after the blog hop I will announce and from all the correct guesses, will randomly pick a name to receive a small batch of goodies from me! 🙂   I am going to be away until the 13th tending to some important family matters but I will try to post my winner before then and the prize will be mailed out when I get back.

This card represented just a personal celebration! I love shopping and anytime I can have the chance to do so, works for me.  If I have to pick an obscure celebration like National Happiness Happens month (people actually celebrate this) I am all for it. Any excuse to hit the mall!

I created this one with some Basic Grey papers I had used for another project.  The image is colored with copics and my sew easy ink stitcher added a bit of faux stitching.  The sentiment is just printed out from my computer.  Ribbon and bling are from my stash.

 

and card #2

This one is just a fun birthday card.  Who doesn’t love to shop for new stuff with all the gift cards and cash for their birthday! I was working on another project and came across this kit that I had of birthday papers from Hot off the Press.  I had totally forgotten about them.  I am loving the colors so I have started to use them over again.  Again the image is colored with my copics and I have added some big brads, bling and twine from my stash.  The kit came with some word art so I thought it would be fun to add that as well.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by! and now it is time for you to hop along.  Your next stop is Mimi who has another great sponsor for you to check out!
When you’re done with the hop, make sure to stop by the LC blog again and say so.  Have Fun!!!
