I know, no one wants to hear about Christmas at the beginning of April. Don’t worry I hope to have some fun spring like projects for you as the month progresses. In the meantime, our newest challenge is up at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and our theme is all white. It’s ok to have a smidgen of of color but try to make it as much white as possible!
Here’s my card this month. I got this gorgeous white snowflake in a swap that I have been dying to use. I paired it with a snowfall embossing folder and the peace die from the Stampin Up Christmas Greetings thinlits. I actually cut out about 5 of them and glued them together to give them a bit of dimension and texture. To finish it off, I added some Nuvo dots. I hope you like it, and please play along with us this month, to win our great prize!
Wow! Friday already! That means we have a new challenge for you at Brown Sugar!
Our sponsor this week is Morgan’s Artwork who will be giving the winner 3 digi images of their choice!
What is this week’s theme you ask?? Why MOTHER’S DAY! An easy challenge and I bet many of you are already working on projects for mom!
Using an image called Cameo 8 for my card this week. (sorry I don’t have a watermarked image for you on this one!)
I tried to give it a bit of a vintage feel…I used water color pencils and some water color paper for the image. I then went over the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink . The DP is just from my stash and I distressed it a little bit as well. To frame the image I just used a die cut that I received in a swap and some little flowers that I have had forever in my stash. A few little pearls around and we are done. The sentiment with the little hearts is from Hero Arts – Celebrate Everyday set. I hope you like it, and please stop by the blog this week and let us know what you are creating!
This sketch is pretty layer heavy which for me is great because I love layers.
I have a big box of loose papers, some that are mine, and some that I got from swaps and such. I really wanted to start getting this box down, so I used some papers for this challenge. I don’t know where they are from as I think I got them in a swap.
I made two cards, basically the same but with a slight variation. I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along!
One of the things I like to do to challenge myself is create cards for obscure holidays. So I decided to do it with a friend this month. I am waiting for hers to arrive but these are the ones that I created and sent off to her, I hope she likes them.

Happy New Year everyone! It’s all about the new at Use Your Stuff this week. Our theme is NEW BEGINNINGS! We would like to see projects that emphasize something new…a new baby, new home, new you..whatever you can think of.
I created a fun little wedding card for my project this week. I wanted to use up some items that had been hanging out on my desk for far too long.
The DP is from an old wedding stack pack by I think DCWV. The image is from my stamp box and the sentiment is stampin up. The flower is from the wedding section at Walmart.
I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us this week.
Sorry for the late posting everyone. Dealing with some health issues in my family this weekend and it has been really stressful.
We’ve got a new challenge up at Use It Tuesday this week. Our theme is Critters/Ceatures! Whether its for a special season, or just anyday we want to see those cute little creatures that you have.
I did a fun ATC for my project this week and I just love how it turned out.
All the bits and bobs were just scraps on my desk. I added a bit of glossy accents to to the bird to give it a bit more texture. I hope you like it and please stop by the blog to see our DT’s great projects and to play along this week.
I just realized it is Friday the 13th today….surprisingly, it is a good day and not a bad one. I’m excited to announce that I will be the Guest DT for 4 Crafty Chicks for the month of December!
Quite excited about that and looking forward to creating with their awesomely talented DT!
Today is our new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges…we’ve got a new DT coming up and some minor changes so watch for a posting about that.
Our theme this week is Autumn Leaves are Falling….I am not looking forward to fall in as much as it means that summer is over. The leaves have already started falling from the trees here. Our winters are always so long so I am sad about this.
I created an ATC for this challenge as I had to do it for a swap-bot swap as well. I do apologize for the picture though. It’s not that great. I’ve already mailed out the ATC so I can’t redo the pic so I do hope you will forgive me.
The DP is just from my stash. I’ve had this leaf FOREVER. It is in a chipboard set and so I spritzed it with my Clearsnap spritzes and then I stamped over it with a sentiment stamp from Pink Paislee’s Amber Road stamp set. I also had some little i-rock blings that I used as well. I also have these cute little leaf punches and I just did a few in some autumn colors to add a little tail to the atc. I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and join in on this week’s challenge.
