I did a wedding layout this week.  This was our wedding cake.  I had originally wanted it to be blue & green, our colors but Neil disagreed.  So, we went with an all white cake and decorated the table instead.  It turned out great and the cake was delish!!!!20141115_1604031

I hope you will join our challenge this week as we have a prize sponsored by Jack Bear Stamps which is pretty darn cool!

Oh Baby

Hey Everyone! I’m late in posting this challenge today.  Sorry about that.  Our new one is up at Red Carpet Studio and..WE HAVE A PRIZE AS WELL!!!

Our challenge is based on the movie MARLEY AND ME.  We would like to see you create a project that features an animal!

MARLEY AND ME

Here is a baby card I created.  I love how this turned out.

The image is Stampin Up and the DP is from my stash.  I really like the colors for this and the fact that this card can be used if one does not know if the baby is a boy or girl :).  I hope you will stop by the blog and play along with us for a chance to win a really great prize pack.

My Pumpkin

Sunday!  The start of another week.  We’ve been busy over here, as I am getting ready for my craft fairs coming up next month.

We are wanting to see your Hallowe’en themed projects this week.  Here is a layout I created about my little munchkin in his very first Hallowe’en costume.  I loved this costume.  I thought it was just adorable on him.

Most of this was created from just bits and bobs out of my stash.  I don’t make a lot of Hallowe’en projects so I tend to have a lot of left over paper.  The jack o’lanterns are just some dollar store stickers I had and the pumpkin in the corner is made from my cuttlebug die.  Some thickers finish it off.  Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to drop by the blog.

Captain America

is in the house…well kind of.  Our theme this week at RCS is to use superheroes!  We are supporting breast cancer month and all of those real live superheros that battle a disease or personal hardship each and every day!  We salute you.  We want to see your projects that salute the superheros you love, fictional or real!

I had a bit of a struggle with this challenge until I went to trusty ol Pinterest and found a great source of inspiration.  I found a great card to case, and I of course cannot find where it was I got it from, so if it looks familiar and you know who the source is, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!

In a unique step for me, almost my whole card was made using just cardstock.  Only a small strip of DP was used.   I hope you like it and please, come and play along with us!

Bring on the Heat!

Hello all!  Happy Easter!  We had a big dinner at my house yesterday so today is a scrappy day for me!  Woohooo!

Our challenge at Red Carpet Studios is up this week.  Our theme movie:  The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.

the heat

 

For this challenge, you can interpret heat any way you wish, could be heat embossing, summer fun (when it’s nice and warm), the warm colors of fire,  show us how it speaks to you!

I decided for this challenge to pull out my heat embossing tool.  It seems like awhile since I’ve used it.  I inked a panel with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.  I then used versamark to put on the stamped flower design and heat embossed it.  I then added the ribbon, flowers and sentiment (Stampin Up) to the panel. The leaves I cut out of some scraps of green cardstock using a sizzix die that I have.  The little orange bead Imade by melting down some pony beads in the oven (as I’m just too cheap to pay for the dots full price) I think it turned out rather well with some lovely colors and nice textures.

Vacation Paradise

Happy Sunday everyone!  Another snowy day here in Calgary.  Yes, you read right.  Snow.. already spring and it is still snowing..  Ugh!  I will be so glad when spring will actually make an appearance.

In honor of the nice weather that is supposed to be here we have a new challenge for you at Red Carpet Studio this week.  Using the awesome movie (and my #2 favorite) Beaches….

Beaches_-_poster

Spring having sprung, vacations being planned, & relaxing times on the horizon, create a project inspired by a beach.  Do you have vacation pictures that need scrapped?  Are you partial to beach colors?  We can’t see how you are inspired!

As many of you know, we regularly hit Cuba each year for our family vacation.  I decided to do a layout with that in mind.  On cold yukky days like this, I go back to those warm tropical breezes, the ocean and gorgeous beaches  that I love so much.

I used an old cloud 9 set that I’ve had for a very very long time.  LOL.  It had co-ordinating embellishments which were perfect for this layout.  I hope you will stop by the blog and check out the great beach inspiration from the DT and play along with us.

And The Winner is….

Hey everyone!  It’s soon to be Oscar time. Did you know that the late Shirley Temple Black names the statue?  She said it looked like her uncle Oscar 🙂

Our challenge for you this week at Red Carpet Studio is to incorporate the theme of the Academy Awards into your project….is it the color gold, or perhaps a trophy that you won?  Is one of your favorite stars this year’s nominee.  So many possibilities.    Our DT has created some great projects for you this week so make sure you check out the blog.

As for me, I was inspired by the color gold.  I don’t use it a lot on my projects but I do love gold glitter paper!  It is so fun and just adds some pop to my projects.  I decided to create an anniversary card for a friend.

Since it is going to be mailed, I wanted to keep it simple.  As well, I am working on my CAS cards so this fit perfectly.  I used just some basic cardstock colors and an anniversary stamp that I’ve had for awhile.  It’s definitely my go to stamp for anniversary cards.  Just a block of gold glitter paper to set it off.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us this week.
