Project One Hundred Thirteen


So today I am showing you a piece I did for a design team try out.
I didn't make it but that's ok. This was one of three pieces I submitted.
The first piece was a project I already posted Project One Hundred Six.

SO here is the layout I made.

The pictures are way over due to be scrapbooked.

All the paper is DCWV.
The stack was the Princess stack.

I hand cut all the frames and strips. The flowers were cut from Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe.
I inked the edges with Stampin Up Ink!

Have a Magical Day!

OK So here are the basic on this cute card.
Base- 4.25 x 5.5 Stampin Up Melon Mambo
Pattern Paper is from DCWV. I used Cricut Cartridge Craft Room Basics for the rounded rectangle
cut at 4 x 5.25 inches. To get the sizes I had to unlock the size buttons.
All the rest of the paper is DCWV also!
Blue Flourish is Cricut Cartridge Ashlyn's Alphabet
The next two layers purple and green are also from the same cartridge, Ashlyn's Alphabet.
The butterfly is from Cricut Cartridge Live Simply.

Project One Hundred Ten

Welcome Back!!

I always love a challenge to get me out of a crafting funk. So I went to a great site
Bitten by the Bug 2 to check out their latest challenge. They are always fun .... well normally.
This latest challenge is a football challenge. I hate football. My husband hates football. The only one who likes football is my dad, and he doesn't just like it he loves it. So I told him I would have a Super Bowl party for him so he could watch the game on our big screen. So I thought I would get ahead of the game for once and create a little treat box for the kids.

The treat box is from Cricut Cartridge Life's A Party. The pattern paper is DCWV.

The footballs are cut at 1.5 inches and are also from Life's a Party Cartridge.

The tag is from Cricut Cartridge Baby Shower cut at 2 inches. It may be a tag big.
The sentiment is from Cartridge Extreme Fonts. I used my Cri-Kit Silver Metallic pen to write the phrase.

I used Stampin Up for the footballs and the tag

Hope you enjoyed
Have a Magical Day

I bought this adorable image from her Etsy shop. I loved him.

All the papers are DCWV.
The image is from All Dressed Up Stamps Store
I added some simple brads and some green stickles.
I had a great time coloring the bat. He reminds me of the Bat from Ferngully, the movie!

Project One Hundred Eight

Welcome Back!! I love Halloween .... so I am getting sad.
My Halloween cards are coming to an end. It will soon be time to 
start working on my Christmas cards.

SO today's project is from a challenge over at Jaded Blossom Blog.
They have some really great favor ideas and stamps to get creative.
I am working on party favors for my kids to give to their coop friends
Halloween day. I am using there great stamps for that project too.

OK on to today's card.

I think it is super cute. I loved this one!

OK so I used the ghost image from Cricut Cartridge Paper Dolls Dress Up. Welded them together
     in Cricut Craft Room.
I then layered a smaller version of the same ghost using DCWV Halloween and Fall Stack.
The mini-monsters are from Cricut Cartridge Bump in the Night
The label I can not remember for the life of me, sorry.

Then sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Stamp Store. It is part of the BFF Bundle.

OK so my yellow gal, I had to flock her. I love flocking.
And of course I glittered her friend.

Thanks for stopping by and
Have a Magical Day

Project One Hundred Seven

Welcome Back.
I am having so much fun learning how to use my Copic Markers.
My biggest fear with them is hair and skin. I was really excited
that the blog hop - challenge was an image with both hair and skin.

All Dressed Up Challenge Blog had a blog hop back on October 7th.
Once the hop was over we were given a free image to use to create a project
for the challenge portion. She was a super cute little girl.

Well just my luck. I finished my project last night. I decided not to work on this last night but do it this morning. I went to their page to get the url
for you to see there great pieces and the challenge ended 11 minutes ago. WAAAAA

Well here is my project anyways ...
So I like how I did her skin. I still need a few more markers then I think I would have loved it.
Not sure how I feel about the hair. I used 4 different colors. I think they were not the right colors plus I think I got really heavy handed with the hair. Well it is a work in progress. I need more colors LOL my hubby is going to love to read that.
The papers pattern and solids are all DCWV. The pattern is from The Girl Power Stack.
