Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge at Cut It Up Challenge Blog

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time for another Cut It Up Challenge.  Our theme for this challenge is Breast Cancer Awareness or Use Pink (and don't forget a die cut.)  Our sponsor is Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  Wendy provided the team with some adorable images and I chose Thinking Pink Lara.

The BCA papers are from American Crafts.  I used Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies, Scallop Square Dies, and Stitched Square Dies.  I also used CC Designs flag dies.  The sequins are from Doodlebug Designs and Lara was colored using Copic Markers.

I hope you'll join in this challenge.  One random entry will receive a gift voucher from

A Little Coloring Fun

Hi Crafty Friends,

I was at an all-day crop at my LCC and spent most of my time coloring.  I'm "training" for some marathon coloring so that I'll be in shape for Jennifer Dove's Copic Boot Camp in November.  That will be 4 straight days of coloring, coloring, coloring.  For Boot Camp we can reserve times with a masseuse - what does that tell you???  I can't wait.

Anyway, here are two projects I created using CC Designs/DoveArt stamps which were designed by Jennifer Dove.

This stamp is Making a List.  I just love this traditional style Santa.

This is Cardinal Birdhouse.  
Since I took the pictures with my phone during the crop and didn't edit, you might not notice that I used Stardust Stickles for the snow.  When I color this image again, I'll used Frosted Lace instead.  Jennifer's stamps are so much fun to color.  I'm so excited for Boot Camp and can't wait to meet her in person and learn firsthand her amazing coloring techniques.

Cut it Up Challenge #105

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's time to have some fun with our Cut It Up Challenge.  We're playing a name game!!
The challenge is to use something on your project that begins with the first letter of your first name - fun, huh?
My name is Larelyn so I'm using Leaves.  This cute wreathe was a freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables.  
I love this woodgrain paper from Authentique.  The sentiment is from the new Hero Arts September monthly kit which I heat embossed.  The svg is actually 4 separate cuts with some very fine branches.  My Silhouette cut them perfectly AFTER I selected the right papers (struggled with some white core paper but Doodlebug Designs and CTMH cut perfectly).  I added some epoxy dots and twine and called done.
I hope you'll join in our fun GAME/CHALLENGE.  Remember to use something that starts with the first letter of your name and include a die cut (which might be your "name" piece).

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing a card I made for Cut It Challenge Blog challenge #104.
Our theme is Water Color-so add some water colored element along with your die cut.

I created this simple Thank You card.  The water colored background was made by brushing water across a piece of Ranger water color card stock and then adding Tim Holtz Water Color Crayons and brushing again with more water.  When dry, I cut the mat using a Jaded Blossom stitched rectangle die.  The sentiment is a die cut from Altenew that is a companion piece to the Thanks stamp set.

I added some organza ribbon and Doodlebug Designs sequins - quick and simple.

I hope you'll join in our challenge.  Just link your project HERE.
