Dragonfly Dreams: June

Happy Sunday one and all! Our new monthly challenge is underway over on the Dragonfly Dreams blog!

This month we are being sponsored by All Dressed Up Digital Stamps

Our theme is OUTSIDE! So let’s see the projects with an outdoor theme to them.

I’m using a digital stamp called Sight Seeing In Paris! I have been lucky enough to go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower about 20 years ago. It was an event that was on my bucket list since I was about 6 and it was everything I thought it would be. I would love to be able to go back there again one day.

I used some DP from Crate Paper called Style Board. The image was colored with copics and my sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I hope you like the card and don’t forget to head on over to the blog to see the rest of the DT creations.

We’ll always have Paris

Ahhh gay Paree…..one of my favorite cities in the world to visit.  I’ve only been there once but would really love to go again.

Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is to create a project that represents Our Wonderful World.  It could be a city that you like, or wish to visit.  A culture that you are into.. something that represents this world that we live in.

As I mentioned, I love Paris.  I love to travel period.

I created this fun card for you using my G45 Curtain Call line.  I also added some bits and bobs from my stash like the ribbon, flower and pearls.  This is the first time that I have used it and I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (what? yr suprised??)  I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us on the blog.  The DT has created some really great projects for you this week.

To Paris with Love

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  We have a lot to be thankful for.  At least I know I do and I am looking forward to some yummy dinners with family and friends.

Today our challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project that is not a card.  It could be a layout, an ATC, a bookmark, altered project, the ideas are limitless.

Lately, thanks to Swap-bot.com, I have been making a lot of ATC’s and altered envelopes (or Mail Art as the group calls them).  Today I am sharing a mail art with the theme of Paris/French.

I created this envelope with my envelope maker first of all.  It’s 5×7.  I then stamped some french script from hero arts all over the inside and out.  I then had some other french stamps from Inque Boutique that I used to stamp on it and then went through my stash looing for anything with a french feel to it.  I found some die cuts, some France stamps and some swirls.  You can’t see it, but on the back is a big postcard of Paris 🙂  I have been to Paris and absolutely love it.  I hope to go back again one day.

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of my team has created and also to play along with us.
