CCC July

Christmas in July…it’s all over blogland.  That’s why it should be pretty easy for you to enter this month’s challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!

Our theme is :

I’m sure you are working on a project right now…so why not join in on the challenge this month!  While you are there, take a crack at our DT call as well.  All the information is on the blog and it’s easy to apply, no experience necessary!  It’s a great way to get started on a Design Team!

Here’s my little contribution this month!


This was fun to make!  I had the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die that I hadn’t used yet so it was fun to crack open.  The little penguins are also from Mama Elephant and I colored them with my copics.  The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn and the DP is from Photoplay.  Super easy, super fun.

Come play with us, if you do, you will be entered to win this adorable prize!

So many reasons to play along this month…see you there!

An Announcement and a Giveaway

I am very excited to announce that I am on the new DT for Sarah Hurley Designs! As you remember I was her guest designer for February and I am excited that Sarah has accepted me to her team for the current term! Thanks so much Sarah! To celebrate, I’ve got a bit of candy to giveaway!

Here’s how you can win:

1. If you aren’t already, become a follower of my blog.
2. Stop by Sarah’s store and have a look around.
3. Come back here and leave me a comment as to what products you liked in the store.

I will pick a winner on Sunday March 6th.  (Just a note, this is posted on my blogger as well so I will be combining the names between the two posts!) International participants are welcome!  Don’t forget to stop by the Sarah Hurley challenge blog to get in on this week’s round card challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don’t forget tomorrow is Thursday which means new challenges from AiF and the Crazy Challenge as well as a sponsor spotlight at Lollipop lots to watch for!  See you then!

Siphoning through the Stash challenge!

Ok..this is ridiculous!  I was just looking through my scraps bucket and I have tonz! So this is the challenge, starting tomorrow and until I get through it all as much as I can…I am going to make cards using only papers and cardstock (other than the base) that are in my stash in an effort to tame it down a bit.  I will post at least 2 cards/day for you to see.  What about you?? What can you do with your stash?

For the next week, if you post a comment with a link (cuz I don’t know how to add that Mr. Linky thingy yet) to your card or scrapbook page or project using nothing but stash papers/cardstock (it’s okay to use a clean piece for the base and to add embellishments) I will enter you to win a great prize pack from me, which I will post here later on tonite.

Tell your friends.  If you become a follower I’ll give you a bonus entry!  Remember we start tomorrow.  I look forward to seeing what you do.
