Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Paisley

Hello, everyone! Today's project is for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge with Scrappy Moms Stamps. This week's challenge is to use Paisely - an old, if slightly neglected, favorite of mine. It's such a fun and playful cartridge - I hope you enjoy my little card.

First, let me share my inspiration with you - I just bought this nightgown for my daughters from Target and I thought it was too cute!! :)

Now here is my project...

I used Sugar and Spice to cut the base of the card and the Polka Dots embossing folder by Cuttlebug. The twine and stamp (Furry Friends) are from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Be sure to visit our other DT members for more Paisley project - the list is on my right side bar. :)

Cristina's Blogaversery Hop!

Hello, everyone! Thank you for joining me today to celebrate the 1 year blogaversary of Crafting with Cristina! You should have arrived from the FABULOUS Liz's Paperloft, if not and you would like to go back and start from the beginning click HERE. :)

Cristina asked us to create a project inspired by one of her creations. For me, one of the biggest things that I have gotten from Cristina is a love for Lettering Delights SVG files. So I decided to use a newly purchased file to create something for you today....

I thought this little puppy was so cute, he just "begged" me to make him! LOL I purchased these thin magnetic snaps a while back to use on boxes. I figured this little box was as good as any project to give them a try. I put one between the flap of the box and the puppy's face. The second one is covered by a small square of paper on the inside of the box. The are hidden so as not to detract from the "cuteness" of the puppy. I am quite pleased with how they work, just thought I'd share. :)

I did a little doodling, added some Diamond Glaze to his nose and stamped a cute little saying (Amusing Animals from Scrappy Moms Stamps) on his tummy.

I hope you enjoyed my little project, the next stop on the hope is the very crafty Paula!

Butterflies and Blogs Hop

Welcome, welcome! Thank you for joining me from Makin' Pretty Things for the Butterflies and Blogs Hop! Laura was so super sweet to ask me to participate in this hop! Isn't she wonderful!?!?! :)

My project today is a "Cricut-ess" card...

This card is 4" x 7" - which is NOT my usual size but I was trying to step a little outside my comfort zone! LOL I used my Fiskars Scallop Lace border punch and wired ribbon from Hobby Lobby for the bottom half of the card. The butterfly is actually an acetate cupcake pick from the dollar section at Michaels. At six for a dollar I couldn't resist! I removed the stick and used pop-dots to adhere the butterfly. I use white embossing powder and Versamark for the stamp (Designers Choice from Scrappy Moms Stamps). Can I just tell you how BAD I am at using embossing powder!! It took 3 tries to get a clear image with out too much "dandruf"! LOL

In honor of Laura's blogiversary I am giving away a Scrappy Moms Stamps Special Delivery stamp set.

DIY Menu board - So cute! :)

I saw a similar menu board somewhere on-line (sorry, I can't remember where) a while ago and have been meaning to make one for my kitchen. Well, I finally got around to it - LOL. :)

I got the square plate and the black wooden stand at Walmart. I used my MTC and a two true-type fonts ("Japan" and "Halohandletter") to cut out my words in vinyl. Joanns sells vinyl and you can use a coupon - I got black and white when they had a 50% off coupon. I will definitely get more with the next big coupon - it was a blast!

I didn't buy any transfer tape since I had read that you can use blue painter's tape for smaller cuts. I have a ton of it so I wanted to give it a try before buying the transfer tape. It worked like a charm, but the days of the week weren't as easy to lay down since they are so thin. They really wanted to stay on the tape, it took a really good bone folder and lots of elbow grease. LOL

Since the plate is ceramic I just use a dry erase marker to write in the dinner selections and it wipes right off!

I hope you enjoyed my little "non-paper crafting" project! Be sure to come back and join me on Thursday when I will be hopping with Laura from Makin' Pretty Things for a Butterflies and Blogs Hop to commemorate her blogiversary! :)

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - New Arrival

Hello, everyone! I hope you all are having a great week so far! :) My card for this weeks TTC is for an expectant mommy...

The base of the card is from Lettering Delights and cut with my MTC program and the heart if from Lacy Lables. Oh, the mommy is cut from New Arrival, I cut the different layers by having multiple copies of the same cut and hiding the ones I didn't want so I could get all the different colors. The stamp is from our brand new Special Delivery stamp set from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

I hope all of you will come and play along with us for this challenge - come by and see all the adorable projects our DT (and Guest Designer) have made for you! Have a wonderful week!

Welcome, royal subjects! I'm sure you had a courtly time with Jenny! Thank you for your presence for my newest project to help wish her majestic, the Scrapbooking Queen, a very happy birthday ....

I used my new MTC to create the card base - I welded 2 shapes together. I wanted it to imitate a princess cut stone, I'm not sure I succeed. LOL The crown is from Potpourri Basket. The stamps are SUPER sneak peek of a new Scrappy Moms Stamps set, comming soon. :)

Your next stop on this special birthday hop is the majestic Gabby!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!

Special Delivery Sneak Peek

Good Evening, everyone! Just a quick post to share a new card made with Scrappy Moms Stamps Special Delivery set...

I decided to try something new on this card - my giraffe isn't a Cricut cut, but a felt & wood piece. I got this cutie at Hobby Lobby and thought he was just too cute to pass up! For the green paper I used the Scallop border punch from EK Success - I have to admit that this is one of the easiest cards EVER! LOL Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoyed it! :)

Sneak Peek Day 2 - All in the Family

Better late than never, right? Sorry this is so late today - I can't seem to get things to work for me lately! LOL :) Todays project is made using All in the Family and Car Decals -

The base is from Lacey Labels - 2 shapes welded together and a third smaller for the heart pattern piece. I cut the mom and baby 5 times to get the layers - on my Gypsy I positioned the layer cuts as much off the mat as I could so that I minimized the waste as much as possible. :)

Here is the full set...

I hope you enjoyed my little card! Be sure to visit the rest of the Scrappy Moms DT and Guest Designer Cricut Chick so see what they have whipped up for you.

April Fools Hop has been cancelled!

Just kidding! LOL Sorry I couldn't resist.... Welcome to Cristina's April Fools Hop, I'm sure you all enjoyed Lezyle's project - isn't she great? I have a quirkly little layout for you...

The sign is from Paper Doll Dress-up, the words are from Sesame Street Font and I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the pieces of the Eye Grow. I rounded the corners of the square with my corner rounder. The leaf base of the eyes and hair are hand cut, which turned out pretty good for someone who can't cut a straight line to save her life. LOL :)

Thank you for joining me today! Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Corri.
