Love is in the Air

With Valentine’s day coming up so soon, you had to know that I would be posting another Love project.

Our challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.  One of my favorite movies……LOVE ACTUALLY  is our theme!  We would like to see a project about love, something that you love, a place you love, something that you love to do, oh the love choices are endless for interpretation!

love, actually


This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls! 

The Paper Nest Dolls


I’ve got a tag for you today.  I love to play with layers and techniques so I thought this would be fun.  I got this from a make and take class I did at a scrapbook convention one year.  I just loved playing with different mediums  and making them all come together.


There is some stamping and inking and modge podge (oh who doesn’t love MP).  I really love that mesh overlay.  I don’t play with mesh nearly enough.  Paper images and some pearls and lace for that vintage feel.  I wanted to give it some pop of color so I added some diecut hearts from my stash.  Just a lovely vintage Parisian feel to this.

I hope you will play along with us at RCS this week for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor!  Show us what you love!!!


Hello everyone! Welcome to my crazy life.  Sorry I’ve not posted for a little bit.  I’ve been crafting but not had a chance to upload anything for you.  I hope to take care of that this week, as my schedule winds down a bit. 🙂  I’ve been working on some ATC’s for a swap that I am excited to share with you.

Now onto this week’s challenge for Use It Tuesday….it’s all about Friends!  We want to see your friendship can be about friendship, it can be of your friends, whatever that means to you.

I have a layout to share with you of me and my BFF Kathy…this was taken 2 yrs ago when we attended the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival put on by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  A 2 day crop that is just the most fun.  Lots of sponsors, lots of prizes and most importantly, LOTS OF FUN…as you can see, we love to ham it up!   (My lighting is bad, but the sign says We heart Canadian Scrapbooker) The DP I have had for awhile and it is called Poppy from SEI as are the coordinating embellishments including die cuts, pearls, gemstones and stickers.  The flowers are coordinating from my stash.

I hope you like it.  Please stop by the blog as the DT has some great projects (as always 🙂 ) for you to see.546950_10151847091575412_1609912549_n

With Sympathy

Happy Friday all and welcome to this week’s installment of Digi Haven’s next challenge.  This week we are featuring freebie flowers!

Here is what you need to know:

June 15, 2012 – Free Floral Digi Challenge.  Use any FREE digital Flower/Floral image you wish. Pair it up with another Free digital image (i.e. add a toad, fairy, butterfly etc.) if you wish. The image(s) can be a forever freebie, limited time freebie or freebie of the month as long as it’s free for the duration of this challenge.  Please be sure to link back to the original artist or website on your blog.  This Challenge ends on Thursday, June 21st.

This is what I’ve created this week.

You can’t tell from the outside but inside there is a sympathy sentiment.  The digi can be found here from Making Our Mark.  I wanted a simple elegant card for this one so I colored the rose with Copics and cut it out with my Spellbinders.  A little embossing with the cuttlebug, some lace and a few pearls and there you have it.   Make sure you stop by the blog to check out the rest of the DT inspiration for you and some great new links to freebies!

1+2+3 Crazy Style

So on our blog at the Crazy Challenge this week, it’s a 1, 2, 3 recipe challenge and the crazy part is, you can pick your own 1,2,3! Our sponsor this week, is Sassy Studios!
For my card, I picked 1 image, 2 DP’s and 3 embellishments. I have stickles, brads and lace. Make sure you check out the blog to enter and to check out the other DT inspiration for you this week.

As you can see, I’ve used again the left overs from the Prima paper from my circle journal.  I added some lace that I inked to match the colors for my card.  I added just a few stickles to give her crown some shine and a few brads in the corner.  It’s been awhile since I used brads on anything!  Colored with Copics and then chalked around.  A simple card that I can use for pretty much anything.  I like that.

Lots of Love

That is our theme for this week’s challenge on the Crazy Challenge.  I’m sure many of you are still doing Valentines so this is a perfect challenge for you.  You can find the deets here.

Now I loved those Vintage Valentine tags that I was doing and posted about yesterday, that I decided to incorporate one into a card for this challenge.  The valentine part is the same as the rest in that it is cut with the cricut, heat embossed with a script stamp altho it’s hard to see on this one, and then the cliparts are distressed and given that vintage feel.  The embellies are just lots of little bits from my stash.  I adhered it to a simple Kraft cardstock and then I added some glimmer mist to the bast to vintage it up a bit.  I also added some bling and ribbon to the base as well. Enjoy and don’t forget to enter our challenge by clicking the link above.  You have a chance to win some fun images from Hobbismo!
