It's a Kid's World


Hi Crafty Friends,
Time for our next challenge at Delightful Challenges.  Today we're asking for projects designed with a kid in mind.  I'm using Joyful Joey from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.



I just love this adorable image.  It's hard to tell but I put the image on a wobble so Joey can joyfully strut his Christmas stuff!  The papers are Recollections.  The tree border and candy cane are dies from the Jaded Blossom Christmas Die set.  Joey is colored with Copics with a touch of Wink of Stella Glitter brush and Liquid Applique for his furry hat.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

I hope you're finding a little crafty time during your Thanksgiving preparations (or are you making your Black Friday lists LOL???).


Each year I make table treats for our Thanksgiving celebration.  Turkey Poop seems to be the favorite so once again I made Turkey Poop bags using a free file released by SVG Cutting Files during the Thanksgiving Mini Hop.


I've also used the following Jaded Blossom goodies:
Scallop Slider and Topper Die
Flag Dies
3 x 4 bag
Turkey Poop stamp set

And while you're here - - -
My friend, Chriss, from Scrappin with Chriss and Lou, is having a give away.  Just click the picture on my sidebar to read her blog post and find out how to enter her give away.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Christmas - It's Coming!!

Hi Crafty Friends,
Welcome to another post as Guest Designer for Jaded Blossom.
 It's that time when I go into overdrive trying to get ready for the holidays.  I like to get my cards out early in the month and I try to make each one different.  However, when the mailing list is over 60 names long and I'm a dyed in the wool procrastinator, it's time to exercise a little crafty creativity and try to do more with less, if you know what I mean.  I got out two Jaded Blossom stamp sets, Winter Wishes, and Christ is Born and some Jaded Blossom dies, Layered Frame and Journal, Flag, and Mini Tag Dies 2 and got to work.
Here are my cards mixing and matching stamps, papers, and ribbon:




All of the images were heat embossed which I think added a special touch.
When you've got a lot to do in a short amount of time, Jaded Blossom comes to the rescue.

A Partridge in a Pear Tree


Hi Crafty Friends,
Today is my design team day at Digi My World.
I'm sharing Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas images that can be found HERE.  I think this little partridge is so darn cute!


I colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes and the die is from the Mini Tag Dies 2 set.  I also added Doodlebug gold sprinkles, some burlap and sparkly rick rack.  I hand cut the little pear and punched the leaf cluster.

A Cute Fall Treat

Hello Crafty Friends,
I'm back today with another project as Guest Designer for Jaded Blossom.
Last week was so amazing with the new release.  I made one more project with my FAVORITE sentiment from the Baked with Love set.
How perfect is this for those of us who are not bakers?! Love it!!
I heat embossed the sentiment so it would be the focal point on my project LOL.
I think this would make a cute hostess treat when visiting my friends (who totally understand my lack of baking skills) during the holidays.
I also used the Fall Dies, Mini Tag Dies 2, and a Jaded Blossom 3 x 4 inch clear bag that fits this SVG Cutting Files Fold Over Treat Holder.  Some washi tape, twine, and a gem are the finishing touches.
Thanks for stopping by to see my project.  I'll have another Jaded Blossom project next Sunday.

Hi Crafty Friends,
I'm so excited to be a part of  Jaded Blossom's November 2014 Release Blog Hop.

Here is what I made:


Annie from SVG Cutting Files created this adorable Potholder Treat Box file for me.  I decided to make it a recipe box since the Jaded Blossom Ticket Book die fit so perfectly. From the release, I used Baking Dies, Freshly Baked Stamps, and Baked with Love.



Annie also created a Potholder Pocket Card.  I used the Flag Dies for the sentiment from the Baked with Love set.

I think this will make a cute little birthday gift set, especially if accompanied by a goodie from one of the recipes shared.

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Day 5 of the release week sneak peeks.  Here is the final set AND the freebie you'll receive if your order totals $40 or more before tax and shipping.



Great way to end the week, right?

Here's my project using the Happy New Year stamp set.

I've always wanted to make a shaker card so I gave it a try using Jaded Blossom's Layered Frame and Journal Die - I just altered it slightly.  I also used Card Mat Dies and Candy Wrap Dies.
The yummy papers are from DCWV Cherry Limeade Stack.

Join the Design Team this afternoon at 4:00 PM (PST) for the Stamp Release Blog Hop.  If you've enjoyed the projects this week, you won't want to miss the hop.  All of the release items will be available for purchase at 4:00 PM.

Cute and QUICK!!!


Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for a new Delightful Challenge.  This week's challenge is
Happy Holidays and you can choose any holiday!

Every year I say I'm going to plan ahead for the holidays and get ALL my crafting done early - not gonna happen!  So today I'm sharing some cute and QUICK gift tags using images from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  What makes these so quick is that I used the colored versions and just used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette - easy peasy.


I used the Christmas Toppers Set 4 and put each one on Jaded Blossom's Treat Tag Die.  I used Kraft paper for the tag and scraps for the mats. I added some bling and tule and called it done!!!  
Cute and Quick!!

I stamped the backs using stamps from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Poop and Christmas Signs sets.

This week's challenge is being sponsored by


The Cutting Café
Prize : 3 sets from store
