Hi Honey!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's challenge day over at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create a Summer Bugs project. Here is what I created.


I seem to be in a tag frame of mind these days...  This little tag is one of my favorites in my tag collection.  It is from Jaded Blossom.  The cute little bee, which I painted with watercolours, is from Craftin Desert Divas, and the sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps.  I decided to jazz up the background a little, by flicking some Tim Holtz Distress Ink om it.  I think she's pretty cute!




I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to join us every week!

Hi Friend

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's challenge day over at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create an EMBOSSING project. Here is what I created.


I used both dry and wet embossing.  The frog was embossed before I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils.  Then I used an embossing folder to do the layer underneath the frog.  I think this frog is the CUTEST!!  It is from Your Next Stamp's "Froggie Friend."

Die Cuttin Divas - Spa Time

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  Today's challenge is SPA TIME.  I can't wait to show you what I created.


I am a huge Hello Kitty fan, and my favorite way to relax, is with a book or a movie in a bubble bath.  I decided to combine both of these loves in this challenge, because for me the idea of spa time, is all about relaxation.  I converted a coloring page into a cutting file in my Silhouette Studio.  I offset it and then created a shape card with it.  I think the end result is SO fun!

The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps "It's All Good" stamp set.  I love all of Mary's stamps.  I can always find the perfect sentiment among my collection.

Die Cuttin Divas - July Sketch

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas!  Today's challenge is a SKETCH challenge.  I can't wait to show you what I created.
 Isn't today's sketch fun?  I took a few liberties with it.  I turned it on it's side, and squashed the purple pieces a bit closer than they are in the original sketch.  Half the fun of sketches is making them your own.


I LOVE this adorable unicorn!  It is from SVG Cutting Files, and she is SO cute!!  I cut the oval out on my Silhouette, just creating the oval in Silhouette Studio.  The patterned paper is from a Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper pad.


The sentiment is from Magical Unicorns from Craftin Desert Divas.  You can find it HERE.  The sentiment is sitting on a flag from Your Next Stamp's Cool Tag Three die set.

Tri-fold Double Waterfall Folio

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create an ANYTHING BUT A CARD project. Here is what I created.



I made a video, to show you the whole thing.  I am pretty proud of the photo folio and I hope you check it out.

  

The paper is from Photo Play Paper's "Rhapsody" collection.  The "trifold" portion is based on a My Sister's Scrapper folio tutorial.  I tweaked it a bit to fit my plan. You can find her original tutorial HERE.  

The double waterfall is based on a style by LMs Crafty Creations.  Her tutorial for the waterfall is HERE.

The way the waterfalls are decorated is how Kathy Orta King decorated some of her pages in her Mr Grant/ Mr Benjamin albums.  That tutorial is HERE.

Toucan Do It!

Ooops...  I posted this a day early...  It was meant to post on Friday ;)

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create a TAG project. Here is what I created.




I am in love with this little Toucan!!  Sadly, I smeared the sentiment... GRRR!  I blame the textured cardstock - I don't stamp on it much...  But I still love this tag.  I coloured the Toucan with my Prismacolor Pencils. The stamp set is from Your Next Stamp.  You can find it HERE

The tag is one of my FAVORITES!!  It is from Jaded Blossom, and everyone needs to add it to their collection.  You can find it HERE.
