I am so excited to be a part of Trendy Twine's challenge this month. When I found out that I would be a guest designer for Trendy Twine and that the challenge this month was "Just another day at the beach" themed I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I have been dying to try to crochet a starfish. So I grabbed TT's Krazy for Kraft twine and 10 minutes later I had this:
We went to our friend's wedding on Saturday and these sand dollars were part of their theme. I was totally inspired to use them.
I think they add the perfect balance to my card.
Thanks for visiting my blog and don't forget to go over to Trendy Twine's blog and leave the DT some love.
Their projects rock!
I am finally back in the blog world. When my computer died in April I had to stop all blogging and drop from all of my Design Teams. :( Then my husband and I recently moved so all crafting was put on hold. Now that we are settled into the new house and my new computer has been installed I can finally start crafting again. YEA!!!
I hope to have many wonderful projects for you soon.
In the spirit of the season I wanted to make an Easter card.
I recently purchased the Hello Spring Stamp and Die set from Emma at My Creative Time and saved it for this challenge. Emma is our sponsor this week, make sure you check out all of her amazing stamps and dies.
Here is my card:
This is the stamp set you could win this week. Join us for our PASTELS color challenge over at Die Cuttin' Diva's.
When I was in grade school I was lucky to go to a school that had a pretty cool music program. We got to play all sorts of instruments that you just don't see anymore. I took piano lessons on and off throughout grade school and high school until I joined the hand bell choir and a vocal group in high school. Not to mention plays, musicals, and performances. Needless to say I loved all of the experiences I had because of music in my schools.
I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder and the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge for this card. The stamp is a dollar find from Michael's.
It is March already (can you believe it!) and I wanted to make a St. Patty's Day card.
I used Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge for the shamrock, Trendy Twine for the bow, and the trim if from Hobby Lobby.the sentiment is from my favorite stamp creator, Emma at My Creative Time. I know I didn't follow the theme of the sketch as most of the DT did, but I do love how different all of their cards turned out as well.
Head on over to the Die Cuttin Diva's sketch challenge and enter to win our blog candy. I am sponsoring the challenge this week. I wanted to stock you up for St. Patty's Day!
I found the background fabric at Joann's and decided to find a die cut that went with it. The Florals Embellished Cricut Cartridge had this die cut that matches pretty well with the fabric. I used Fun Fur yarn because is reminded me of a feather boa and the flowers are rhinestones I found in the clearance bin at Michael's. I purposely did not put a sentiment on this card beacuse I haven't decided what to use it for.
Head on over to the DCD blog and show us your recipe card/project. Don't forget to tell us which die cut you used.
I used the Rock Princess Cricut Cartridge, The large heart was cut at 2.5" and the three smaller hearts were cut at 5". The button is from my stash. The ribbon was a Michael's find. The stamps are from My Creative Time.
As promised, My sister and I are having a special blog post for our birthday.
We searched the blog world and found an amazing project for all of you... The Never Ending Card!
This is the first time my sister and I have made this card. You can literally flip and flip and keep flipping the card over and over forever. Here are the pictures of my never ending card.
All of the paper is from DCWV's Lemon Flower Stack. I have been waiting to use this paper and I absolutely love how it looks on the never ending card.
I used 3 different embossing folders, chip board embellishments, paper and mulberry flowers, buttons, and various stamps. I do have a few blank areas on the card that I am not sure what to put, but I think I will wait and see what I come up with.
This past Monday at CHA I had the pleasure of meeting Emma from My Creative Time. She is amazing and so are her products. Emma gave me and my sister this stamp set for blog candy for our Birthday Celebration Post. All you have to do is become a follower and leave me a comment. I would also love it if you visited Emma's blog and told her that we sent you.
All of the designers have found the cutest squirrel die cuts to use on their projects.
I pulled out my Stretch your Imagination cartridge and with the help of my niece, Casey, came up with this altered notebook.
The squirrel was cut at 3.5" and the tree at 6". The background paper is from DCWV's Animal Cracker stack and the twine is from Trendy Twine. I am still looking for the perfect sentiment for this notebook. So if you can think of something or know of someone who makes really cute sentiments I would be very appreciative.
Whoo hooo, we
are in our two weekend count down to our 100th blog post. I hope you are
anticipating it as much as we are and are making plans to join us.
weeks challenge is a sketch challenged hosted by Robyn's Fetish.
I decided to use the Frosty Friends Digi from Robyn's Fetish on my card.
The paper is from DCWV Sweet Stack and already had the white and pink stripes at the bottom. All I added was the cardstock, Trendy Twine, and a button from my stash. On the image I used glitter glue to enhance the hearts and snow.
Thanks for visiting my blog and we hope to see you over at Critter Sketch.
