Die Cuttin Divas ~ Guest Designer


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have the privilege of Guest Designing for the Die Cuttin Divas.
The theme for this week is (my favorite!) LOTS of LAYERS!!


I had so much fun designing this card using the LaLa Land Crafts May Club kit along with other LLLC dies.  Isn't Gnome Marci a sweetie?  She's colored with Copic markers but her dress was paper pieced first using one of the patterned papers from the Authentique set, Cheerful.  

I selected a lot of dies and started cutting then, after playing around with the patterned papers, I started layering.  I love the way it turned out.  I cut the mushroom house out of Copic friendly card stock and colored it just like I added Copic marker to Marci's dress after paper piecing.

Thank you so much, Georgiana, for allowing me to be a guest designer for this fun challenge.

You can join in the fun by following the link above and also checking out the Die Cuttin' Divas on Facebook.

Always Fun Challenge # 67 ~ Paper Piecing


Hi Crafty Friends,

Always Fun Challenge #67 is paper piecing.

I just received some fabulous new Jaded Blossom dies and I wanted to use them to create this masculine card.


The die set is Diamonds and I used the three smallest for this card.  I just went to my patterned paper scrap box and selected all different papers to cut and then arrange in an interesting pattern.
The stamp is from Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays 3.
This is a great way to use scraps and add to my masculine card stash.

Just follow the link above to play along with this week's challenge.

The Merry Christmas Challenge #27

Hi Crafty Friends,
Here's my project for The Merry Christmas Challenge this month.  From now through December our challenges will be posted on the 15th of each month and will be open until the 14th of the next month.  Hopefully you've been keeping up with your holiday card making so this reduction of challenges will give you more crafty time because YOU'RE AHEAD with your Christmas cards, right?  LOL.  The remainder of my designs will be those with which I can make easily make multiples so I'll have plenty come mail time.
I used one of Authentique's paper lines from last year to create this card.
The tree is washi tape wrapped around a triangle.  I added some Recollections sparkly dots to mimic the tree lights in the patterned paper.  This was a quick and easy card to design and assemble.
Just follow the link above and show us how you're doing with your Christmas cards.

Cut it Up Challenge #152 ~ Under the Sea


Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our Cut it Up Challenges Under the Sea theme.

Our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.  Regina has such wonderful and is always so generous to our team.
For this challenge, I took her Under the Sea PDF file, imported it into Silhouette studio and converted to a vector (svg) file.  I think this is the first time I've tried doing this.  After playing around with some of the file images I decided on three to use.  Since I wanted to color them with Copics and didn't want to use the print and cut option, I just sent them to the printer, colored them and cut them out with my Scan N Cut2.  Probably the long way round but it worked for me LOL.


I embellished with die cuts from LaLa Land Crafts and added a sentiment for Jaded Blossom's Make Waves stamp set.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge.  Follow the Cut it Up link above.

Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge #121


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge mid-inspiration post for challenge #121.

Our theme is Under the Sea.
I've used an image from our sponsor, Kinda Cute by Patricia, called Jellyfish.


I'm still using supplies from kits I collected during a shop hop many years ago so I can't really share where the die cuts/punches came from but I think they are perfect to create this under the sea design.
I did use Copic markers on the image and cut it out using my Scan N Cut2.

Mid-inspiration means you still have time to enter our challenge.
Just follow the Aloha Challenge link above.

Cut It Up Challenge #151 ~ TAG, you're it!


Hi Crafty Friends,

I love making tags! 

 Our challenge at Cut it Up is to make a tag and we were gifted a great tag die set from our generous sponsor, CAS-UAL FRIDAYS along with a sweet flower die.

With her wedding coming up, I thought I'd make a tag using my daughter's wedding colors and theme (rustic/lace/burlap.)


The tag and flowers are dies from our sponsor.  I used a well-loved Martha Stewart die for the "leaves."  The sentiment is heat embossed using a stamp from Jaded Blossom's Fancy Wedding set.  I added Stickles to the flower centers.  Easy peasy but follows her wedding theme perfectly.

Follow the Cut it Up link above to join in our TAG challenge.
