The Merry Christmas Challenge # 13

Hi Crafty Friends,

The Holly and Ivy team are sharing projects for TMCC #13.  Our optional theme is BELLS.

I used a file from the Silhouette Design Store and papers from Authentique.

I cut this file with my Silhouette and set the over cut option to get a clean cut.
I love how it turned out.  I think I'll be making duplicates of this one!

Just follow the link above to join in our challenge.  Remember, our them is optional.  So get going on those Christmas cards!!!


Kitty Bee Designs ~ DT Spotlight

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm back with this month's Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight Project using
Sleeping Mushroom Bun.

I love coloring Kitty Bee Designs digital stamps because they print so clearly and are just so delightful.  Of course, I colored using Copic Markers.

I have a CAS style so these are the perfect stamps for my designs.  I used some patterned paper from my stash, a hint of twine and a few sprinkles, then called it done!!!

Always Fun Challenge # 51 ~ Easter

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's been an Easter-themed crafty week!
Our Always Fun Challenge for this week is Easter.  

I found these adorable bunny dies (set of 3) at my local scrap book store.  They are so darn cute.  The grass is a die from LaLa Land Crafts and the title is a sticker from my scrap stash.  Quick and cute!!

Cut it Up Challenge # 144 ~ Easter

Hi Crafty Friends,

The Cutting Cafe provided our files for our Cut it Up Easter challenge.

I chose to use the Egg Goodie Box file.

Here's my cute treat box.

I cut out the pieces using my Silhouette and then assembled the box following the PDF directions.  The file includes a variety of tops to choose from.  Won't this be fun filled with chocolate eggs or Jelly Bellys?

Always Fun Challenge #50 ~ Cats and/or Dogs

Hi Crafty Friends,

For Always Fun Challenge #50 I did some stamping without coloring!  Can you believe it???

I've had this stamp set forever.  I'm not even sure where it came from but I think maybe it was a 
Gina K Designs monthly set.  I chose two of the many images from the set and one sentiment.  Then I created a scene, of sorts, using Jaded Blossom Stitched Rectangles and then stamped the sentiment on a JB Dimensional die.

Finally, I added a little bling just because that's what I do!!  LOL.

My Bestie International Reminder Post

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm here to remind you that there is still time to enter our March challenge at

I hope you like this sweet Easter image.

I colored using Copic Markers.  The egg die is an unbranded one I've had in my stash and I also dug out a Martha Stewart round the page die for the border.

The Merry Christmas Challenge #11

Hi Crafty Friends,

Time again for the Holly and Ivy team to post on
The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog.

Our optional theme is the Grinch Movie.

I think this Grinch is delightfully evil but I must say that the one in the movie (not the animated film) kind of scares me!!!

I purchased this cut file on Etsy.  I used my Silhouette but it was tricky finding the right paper that would cut these lines.  I used Doodlebug Designs card stock and set my Silhouette ot overcut.  Than seemed to work best.  I found the font for the sentiment on DaFont.  

Be sure to join us and keep those Christmas cards coming!

Always Fun Challenge #49 ~ Shades of Green

Hi Crafty Friends,

Sometimes it's just fun to select a set of papers and play around with an arrangement.
I love Authentique papers and have had this St. Pat's 6x6 pad for awhile.  I thought it would be the perfect paper for Always Fun's Shades of Green challenge.

The die cuts are from Jaded Blossom's St. Patrick's die set.

Come on over to Always Fun (link above) and join in the fun!

Aloha Crafty Friends,

I'm sharing my Mid-Inspiration post for Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge.
Our theme for challenge #113 is "In the Garden."
I'm using a digital stamp from one of our sponsors, Star Stamps, called
Spring Bumble Bee.

Isn't this image sweet?  I found the patterned paper in my stash.  Lord knows how long I've had it!
I colored the image using Copic Markers and added some Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.

Always Fun Challenge #48 ~ Inspired by a Movie

Hi Crafty Friends,

For my Always Fun Challenge this week, I was inspired by the movie,
Despicable Me.

My grown daughter still gets a kick out of the Minions so I made this card to send to her.

The cut file is from SVGCuttingFiles.com but, unfortunately is no longer available.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the pieces and then used some great Authentitque papers to create the card.

Follow the link above to join in this week's challenge.
What movie inspires you?

My Besties International Challenge ~ March

Hi Crafty Friends,

Is March "roaring in like a lion" at your home?  We're expecting some stormy weather here in northern California which is good since we really need the rain but not so good since most of the trees are blossoming.

Our optional theme for My Besties International Challenge is 
Girls with big hats or hair pretties! 

I'm not a hat person, big or otherwise but the image I'm using is
Fancy Pants Loves Copics and you know I'm definitely a Copic person!!!

Follow the link above to join our challenge.  You may use any image by any artist.
Thanks for stopping in and Happy March!!
