I heart you

I’m a bit behind the ball here!  Our new challenge is up on the Use Your Stuff blog and Tammy C’s challenge is to use hearts on your project.

That shouldn’t be too hard considering that it is getting close to Valentine’s Day and many of us are working on VDay related projects right!

Here is a card I created! I’ve been hanging around in the Cricut Design space this last week seeing what I can play around with and this was one of the cards that we could create!

The DP in the back is from Papermania in a collection called Red Hot.  I got this as a gift years ago and have been trying to use it up!  The heart hands are from the Cricut design space (i’m not sure which cartridge it is from as it was one of those Make it Now projects)  and then I went over it all with my wink of Stella pen for a little glitz.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us!

ATC’s

I’ve got another couple ATC’s made for a challenge on Swap-bot.com.  The themes are Valentine’s Pink and Thank you.  I decided to create them with the new challenge at Use Your Stuff in mind.  Our challenge is to use Paint.  I don’t actually have a lot of paint but I did manage to find a few.

For the Thank you one, I used paint to color the bird and on the Valentine’s day one, I used some crackle paint on the heart as well as some white paint around the edges of the ATC which is a bit hard to see.  I hope you like them and don’t forget to play along this week on the blog.

Your Funny Face!

Ahh Monday!  Back to the grind after a wonderful weekend away at our farm.  Our new DT member Anne has a new challenge for you this week at Use Your Stuff.  So easy, you have to play along.  All you have to do is use some patterned paper!  You can do that right!

Here’s a layout of Riley using some old CTMH paper that I’ve had since I think I started scrappin’ years ago.  I think it is called Superstar.  I love the boy colors!

I had a few scraps of some sheets from a previous project and they were perfect to highlight as banners on the main page.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog.  We would love to see what you create!

The Journey

Happy Monday!  I’m hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff.  Anyone that knows me, knows that travelling is one of my passions.  I totally love it and that is this week’s theme.  For my project, I’ve been doing a lot of ATC’s for swap-bot, so I created some travel themed ones for the challenge.

I created these mostly with just bits and bobs from my scrap box.  That is the perfect thing about ATC’s.  It just uses up those little bits.  I hope you like them and be sure to stop by the blog to see the great layouts the ladies did this week.  Some wonderful visited cities!

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.

New Beginnings

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s all about the new at Use Your Stuff this week.  Our theme is NEW BEGINNINGS! We would like to see projects that emphasize something new…a new baby, new home, new you..whatever you can think of.

I created a fun little wedding card for my project this week.  I wanted to use up some items that had been hanging out on my desk for far too long.

The DP is from an old wedding stack pack by I think DCWV.  The image is from my stamp box and the sentiment is stampin up.  The flower is from the wedding section at Walmart.

I hope you like it and I hope you will play along with us this week.
