Banner Birthday

My second week sponsoring the Creative Corner Challenge this week.  Our challenge is to use fasteners…buttons, eyelets, brads etc.

Lately I have been trying to use up my Little Sprout kit that I bought way back in 2009.  So expect to see a bunch of cards/layouts in the coming weeks using it up.  I finally got through it all. :0  This card is actually using scraps of scraps..right down to the very end. 🙂

I used a sketch from a sketch challenge at CanadianScrapSwap Chat this week.  Lots of fun banners and flags. 🙂

I used everything from my stash this week.  Buttons, bling, ribbon and paper 🙂

Make sure you stop by the blog this week to enter the challenge for a chance to win the prize I have up for grabs today.

Anything Goes with Lollipop Crafts

Hello everyone! It’s another Monday challenge at Lollipop Crafts this week.  It’s our last challenge of the month so that means it’s a just for fun anything goes challenge.  Make sure you stop by the blog to see what the rest of the design team has created for you and to link up your challenge project.


I have another layout for you.  In keeping with the Little Sprout Collection from Crate Paper I did another cute layout of Mr. Riley.

Thanks for stopping by and I love to get your comments.


Baby Tag

So last week I had posted a layout I did for a kit of the month challenge on CanadianScrapSwapChat.  That was part one.  Part two was to create another project using the same could be card, altered project, tag etc.  I really like the die cuts in this pack so I made a cute little baby tag with it.

It’s a bit fuzzy so I hope you’ll forgive that.  I basically just used up some of the scraps and then added the diecuts and popped them up.  Nothing fancy here.  Just a little ribbon to match.  Pretty clean and simple I think. I hope you like it.  I have a friend who’s newly pregnant and so I can’t wait to put this on her present for her shower!  I hope she likes it too!

I’ve entered into the following challenges:

A.muse studio: die cuts

Crafting When We Can: Animals

CASual Fridays Challenge: Hello Baby

Crafty Ann’s Challenge Blog: Anything Goes





Being Silly I had mentioned in my previous post, I’ve cracked open the Crate Paper Little Sprout set and I have been going to town creating some layouts of Riley.  So since this week’s challenge is Anything Goes at Lollipop Crafts this week, I decided to create a layout for my DT inspiration piece.

This is a picture of Riley at about 3 months old spending his first Thanksgiving in Kamloops with Grandma and Grandpa Schlinker.  Grandpa decided to get silly with Riley and well..this is the result.

I hope you like it and make sure you stop by the Lollipop blog this week to see some more great inspiration from the DT and enter this week’s challenge.  Now this week’s challenge is a non-sponsored one however, for those of my followers and friends who enter into the challenge and then come back here and let me know (so I can comment on your project 😉  I will enter you into a draw to win some fun scrappy goodies from me!

Happy Scrappin’ everyone!

Who’s the Cutie

So on the CanadianScrapSwapChat board, Rachel has started a new monthly challenge.  It’s called the Use Your Stash Kit Challenge.  The object is to make a kit using product you already have on hand and use it to create a variety of different projects.  So this is my part #1 the Layout!

I decided to crack open my Crate Paper Little Sprout set.  I have had this before Riley was born and he’s almost 3 now.  It was always my intention to use it to make layouts for his pictures I’ve just never gotten around to it…so this was the perfect time.  This was our sketch

And here is the layout I created from the kit that I put together

These are pics that were taken of Riley on his first trip to Cuba.  He is about 6 months old here.  I can’t help it..I think I have the cutest kid!.  I hope you enjoy this and if you want to, come join us on CanadianScrapSwapChat.  We are always looking for new members (free to sign up).  We have lots of challenges and prizes and lots of fun scrappy chat.  The board is open to Canadian residents only.  Let me know if you are interested and I’ll make sure you get in quickly 😉
