The Merry Christmas Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

Woohoo, another Christmas card completed (I may not have that last minute holiday card panic this year!) for this month's The Merry Christmas Challenge.

Remember we have changed our challenge to monthly from now through December.  You'll find the design team's projects posted on the 15th.  Just follow the link above.

Here's a CAS card I designed for this month.  Right now I'm designing cards that will be easy to make multiples with changes in the background to make them different.

Just some matting and a greeting that I die cut using foiled paper makes a simple holiday card.

Thanks for stopping in.  I hope you'll join our challenge.

Always Fun Challenges #71 ~ Going Round in Circles

Hi Crafty Friends,

Wow, this challenge describes me quite well especially with our daughter's wedding only a few weeks away!  I actually made a birthday card for my sister-in-law for this challenge.

I used Jaded Blossom Stitched and Scallop Circle dies to creat this shape card.  The patterned papers and stickers are from Doodlebug Designs new Hello line - so bright and fun.
I cut the shapes using my Gemini Jr.  

I hope you'll join our Always Fun Challenge.

A New Team and a New Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

Yes, I'm designing for a new team.  I've joined my dear crafty friend, Shell Shearer Swinscoe on her challenge blog, My Time to Craft.

I'll be posting with her team every other Saturday.  
I'm beginning with Challenge #377 ~ More Than One Fold

Every year we receive a case of Walla Walla Sweet Onions from some great friends in WA.  Their daughter played for our daughter when she was coaching at Texas Tech University.  I always try to create something with an onion for the thank you card.  After 7 years it's getting difficult to find new cut files so this year I created my own patterned paper to add to this Z-fold card.  I hope they like it.

So come on over to my newest design home and join in our challenge.  Just follow the link above.

Cut it Up Challenge Blog - challenge #154~Use Your Favorite Color

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our "Use your Favorite Color" challenge has started at Cut it Up Challenge Blog.

I have lots of favorite colors but right now with my daughter's wedding coming up I'm focusing on their colors of blue and soft orange.  Awhile back I shared an adorable teapot I made using Ink on 3s Pansy Tea Party 3D SVG kit

 Today I'm adding the teacup.

Here's both projects together.

This is such a fun set.  I also includes a flowered dome lid for the teacup and an adorable purse.
I hope you'll visit our sponsor's blog to see more of her creative offerings.

I cut these projects using my Silhouette using the file as is.  They were easy to assemble as long as you have a strong, fast drying adhesive.  I used Art Glitter Adhesive and it worked very well.

Come on over to Cut it Up and share your favorite color.

I used Doodlebug Designs papers and some AC sparkly glitter tape.
The sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom, So Many Birthdays 3.

I hope you'll join in this week's fun.  We all need to add a little sparkle to our lives.

Always Fun Challenge #69 ~ Anything But a Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

We're asking for Anything But a Card on this week's Always Fun Challenge.

As I shared on another post, I'm using my challenge opportunities to create things for my duaghter's wedding.  For this challenge I made a gift box which will hold one of her bridesmaid gifts.

I used the Scalloped Caddy die from Jaded Blossom.  The flower is a die from CAS-ual Fridays with the leaves using a Martha Stewart punch (an old standby!)  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's She Said Yes stamp set.

I'll be attending a 3-day group to make even more of these cute little boxes.

Follow the link above to join in this week's challenge.

Aloha Friday Challenge for Kitty Bee Designs

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for the mid-inspiration reminder that the Aloha Friday Challenge for Kitty Bee Designs is still open so there's plenty of time for you to share your project.

I made my card using Jennifer from one of our sponsors, LeeAnn's World 101.

I colored using Copic markers and created the shape card using Jaded Blossom's new Octagon Stitched dies - love them! 
Follow the link above to join in our challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes with the option of Friendly Faces.


Cut it Up Challenge #153 ~ Christmas in July

Hi Crafty Friends,

We've gotten aboard the Christmas in July train over at Cut it Up Challenges.

Our sponsor, My Scrap Chick, provided our files.  I hope you'll visit the store ~ you'll find lots of crafty goodness.

I chose a very simple cut file for this Christmas card.  I wanted something that I could easily make multiples and only change the background paper.  The wreath cut beautifully on my Silhouette.

What a great way to use your scrap stash and get some holiday cards completed ahead of time!

I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  Be sure to follow the theme and include a die cut.

Kitty Bee Design Team Spotlight

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my turn for the Kitty Bee Designs DT Spotlight.

For this month's spotlight project I've used one of the adorable Emilee Elephant images.
You'll find them HERE.

This month I've been creating projects using my daughter's wedding colors so that she can use these designs for her thank you notes, favors, etc. For this simple design I've also used Copic markers, LLLC stitched banner die, Jaded Blossom stitched oval die, and a Darice chevron embossing folder.
After printing the image, I cut it out using my Scan N Cut2.

There is a different Spotlight project featured every day on the Kitty Bee Designs blog.  I hope you'll take a look.

Always Fun Challenge #68 ~ Color Inspiration

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today we have a Color Inspiration challenge at Always Fun.
Lucky for me, the inspiration colors just happen to be some of my favorites and also some of the accent colors in my daughter's upcoming wedding.

I've used the Altenew Halftone Thanks stamp and die set.  The mats are from Jaded Blossom's newest Octagon Die set.  I popped each layer up a little for more dimension and used my Gemini Jr. for the die cuts.

Here's the color inspiration photo.

I hope you'll join our challenge.  Just follow the link above.
