TMS #637 Anything Goes!

Hey ! Can you believe we are in Christmas week??? Holy hannah! Are you getting excited? I know I am.

We have a special challenge for you this go round.

ANNUAL ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!

With it being the last 2 weeks of the year, my amazing team uses this time for a much needed break to get themselves ready for the Christmas and New Year holidays, spend time with their families and recharge their creative batteries.

There are rules to this challenge, though…

1.  Your project must be new, no back linking.

2.  Your project must be PG rated.

3.  It is anything goes, but must be crafty related.  Feel free to share a crocheted/knitted project, other paper craft, mixed media, art journal, even planner pages you’re particularly proud of.

4.  You may enter as many times as you’d like!We do have a prize, as usual.  This year I’m giving a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp!

I’m sharing with you another card that I created during a Photoplay card class that I took recently. Firstly I love this line of paper and embellishments, and secondly I’m just amazed at how easy it is to put together a fun card using only paper, stickers and some dimension adhesive! We all know I love layers and these stickers and some embossing just makes for some great interest .

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. From my house to yours, Happy Holidays and all the best for the new year!

CCC: December

Hello! Today I bring you my final card as part of the Christmas Craft Creations Design Team. I have had such a wonderful time over the last couple of years being a part of this wonderful group of designers and I am going to miss them.

Our December challenge is in full swing and the theme is MAKE A SCENE! This is a fun challenge and so easy to do~

I did the PhotoPlay line Not a Creature was Stirring and as in yesterday’s post, it was so fun creating with just paper and stickers!

Looks like Santa was doing some holiday shopping in the city! The DT has some great projects to inspire you and so I hope you will stop by the blog and see what they have created and we can’t wait to see your own projects!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Hey Everyone! I know that it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. It’s just been crazy and I just haven’t had much time for crafting.

Today I have our new sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and a pretty Christmas Card to share with you.

I really like this sketch! I only used 2 pieces of 6×6 paper but if you had one sheet that would totally work. I love the grey and white look of this. The cheer and the bow are from my stash but I think they are Pink Paislee. The DP is just from Michaels but it’s just so pretty!

I hope you like it and be sure to play along with us over on the blog! The rest of the DT has some amazing projects too!

CCC: November

Hey there! I’m here with your mid month reminder for the Christmas Craft Creations blog!

Our theme this month is to make a fun fold project! Now I will be the first to admit that fun folds are not my forte! I do however, have a couple of Sizzix die sets that do the job for me, as is the case with this card!

I paired it with some Simple Stories Christmas paper from 2014 called Snow Fun! Yikes! I’ve got so much Christmas stuff, I forget sometimes how long I’ve had it! I don’t use this die set that much, and I have another similar but it is kind of fun! You just cut out all the pieces and put them together…easy peasy!

Make sure you stop by the blog and enter into this month’s challenge! The DT has some great projects for you too!

The little sticker was just from my stash but it fit perfectly for this card and those fun snowflakes.

CCC: September

Hey everyone! I’m here to remind you that our sketch challenge at Christmas Craft Creations is going strong and you still have time to enter!

I’ve had this owl paper for a long time and I had these little winter owl stickers and I thought they would pair so well together!

Well I’m back in town and I got a lot done in terms of scrapbooking while at the farm. About 3 layouts and 9 cards which is the most I’ve worked on in awhile! Most of these you will see in upcoming posts once I get them photographed.

On to this week’s challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

I really liked this sketch! I used one of the SCT samplers I took with me and created this fun Christmas in July card. I belive this one is from the Pinkfresh Holiday Vibes collection which was in the December 2018 sampler.

I had limited supplies at the farm so I created this card using just the papers that were in the sampler and then some enamel dots! I cut out the little houses from a sheet of the paper and also the sentiment was a paper as well. I think it turned out really well.

Head on over to the blog and see how the rest of the DT has created with this sketch this week!

Ok one and all! We are up and running over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies with this month’s new challenge! We are being sponsored by Jan’s Digi Stamps.

We are sponsored this month by Jan’s Digi Stamps and they generouslyprovided images to our DT use on their inspiration projects.  

I used the Merry Chris-Moose digi for my Christmas in July card. Our theme is actually ANYTHING GOES but I thought it would be fun!

I colored him just with my copics. The DP is from Miss Kate Cuttables…i thought the buffalo print went so well with his shift! I also added just a little bit of glitter paper for an added accent. Our DT has some really great projects for you to see using a variety of images from the shop so be sure to check them out!

CCC: Tag or ATC

Wow! Last week of May! This year is flying by isn’t it! OK…I’m here to give you your reminder for our May challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!

This month it is tags and ATCs! A nice little change right? They still have to have a Christmas theme to them of course.

I created this cute little ATC coin! It’s the same size as an ATC but in a rounded shape and oh so easy to make!

The DP is from Miss Kate Cuttables! She doesn’t just have these amazing die cuts you can buy but papers as well!

After cutting out the circles about 6 times I glued them all together to make them nice and thick . I then cut out the DP and added it to the top layer. I wanted a bit of a buffer between the DP and my sentiment die cut so I just added a nice red piece of cardstock. The die was one I picked up a long time ago so I don’t even remember who it is by.

I hope you enjoy it and come by the blog and enter our challenge with your ATC or tag. We are looking forward to see what you create!

CCC: April

Hello you! Glad to see you again for another great challenge over at Christmas Craft Creations! Our theme this month is No Stamping! Now some of you may find this challenging, but if you concentrate on layers and stickers like I did, you can put together a pretty nice card!

Here’s what I have for you today!

With this card I used only paper, a 3×4 & 4×6 cards and stickers! I put the sentiment sticker onto some black cardstock to give it a bit more definitiion and popped up some of the embellishment stickers with foam dots. These cards were part of a Stampin Up set I bought years ago and am still working my way through them!

I hope you will play along with us and stretch your imagination to create with stamps…use 3×4 journalling/project life cards, stickers, thickers, and layers to help create your project. You will be surprised how easy it really is!

Don’t forget, since this is our birthday month, we are giving away a bunch of prizes as well to some lucky winners. The blog has all the details and pictures of what you can win, as well as the rules for entry for the challenge.
