Let’s Play BINGO

Hello all!

I am hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff and we are playing BINGO!  I’ve created a fun bingo card to use on your project (a great way to get the MOJO going as well if you are stuck!).  Here’s the card , there are lots of fun items to play with.

Here is the card I created using the horizontal line of red, die cuts/cut aparts, hearts and doily

The DP is from American Crafts XOXO collection. The doily, die cuts and white foam heart are from recollections and the glittered hearts I cut using some Recollections glitter paper and my little $$ store heart punch.  I hope you like it and hop on over to the blog to play along and to see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

A Blessing

Hi Everyone!  I’m back from my annual Cuba vacation, which was perfect of course! Amazing weather and lots of fun!

Time to get busy creating again!  Our challenge this week at Use Your Stuff is to create a project using 3 different patterned papers.  It’s for challenges like this that I love co-ordinating paper from manufactures, and when they are double sided- even better!

As I was doing a monthly challenge on the Scrap Shotz site as well which was to use a themed paper for a non-themed project, I chose some Valentine’s Day papers from My Mind’s Eye.

I’ve had these papers for years and it was finally nice to get them open and used.  I chose them for a new baby layout instead!  I hope you like it and I hope you will join us on the blog and play along.

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!

Bling it on Baby

As you are reading this, I am basking in the Cuban sunshine, sipping alcoholic drinks, eating lobster (well maybe not since I’m allergic) and having a grand time finishing up my holiday!

Another new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.  Bring on your BLING!!  Oh you know you want to do this one!!  Who can resist the shiny??

I decided to go with a Valentine’s day card with the challenge.  It feels like forever since I’ve made one and goodness knows I’ve got the supplies.  I just decided to go with some bits and bobs from my stash.  I don’t know who the DP is from but the little die cuts are all from K & Company.  The doily is from the $$ store and the bling is all from my stash.   I’ve got some pearls, a dainty rose and a cute bling heart in there as well.  The ribbon is left over from my project last week 🙂

Have you been to the blog?  The ladies have blinged it out!  Go see! 🙂

Love Tag

Hey everyone!  It’s a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges for you this week.

This week our challenge is Love and Hearts.  Create any project that has hearts or has a love subject and link it up for us to see.

For my project this week, it’s a shared collaboration really.  I received this tag as a note for a swap.  I liked the look of it, but I really wanted to build on it, so I just started adding more embellishments to it.  Nothing like layers and layers right.

I started adding some charms, and flowers and bling and ribbon and I think it just looks adorable.  I hope you enjoy it and please stop by the blog and join our challenge this week as well as to see the other great creations by the DT for you this week.

With Love

I do apologize everyone.  This post should have been up yesterday but somehow I managed to screw that up.  We have a new challenge for you at Lollipop Crafts.  Our theme is With Love…..your challenge..a love inspired project that is not a card.  It could be a 3D project like a bag or box or perhaps a tag or a frame.  We are being sponsored by Karber this week

 

and on Thursday, Alanna and her team will have a lot of information and new inspiration pieces for you.

My project this week is a Vintage Valentine Tag.  I don’t know what it is about these, but I just love making them.  For something totally different, instead of just the traditional pink or red, I opted for blue in there as well. The image is printed off of the internet. I cut the heart out using my Cricut and did some inking and misting for a bit of texture.  Then I just added some fun elements, vintage music sheet, there’s a doily hiding out in there , bling, flowers, some lace and distressing.  I hope you enjoy it.

Make sure you stop by the Lollipop blog to enter this week’s challenge!
