I am trying to catch up on my birthday cards... this is for my Mom (birthday in August). I used up some of my older Highline papers by Basic Grey---that makes this card perfect for the Sav Challenges:)  

I used simple supplies- ink from IMAGINE Crafts, Hemptique twine, and the PS Birthday Bash set and the Dainty FlowersGift Tags, and Hearts dies. This card is definitely simple but it's full of beauty and love;)

Paper Smooches SPARKS: June Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}


Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week we are sharing a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 




This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
**Sentiments can be placed anywhere on the sketch.

So... again I thought I was doing well at following sketches... but this one I might have went off track A LOT! I think next month I should challenge myself to stick to the sketch 100%! No changes what-so-ever! I'll keep you posted:) ****Honestly, I'm not sure I reeeeeeally changed much on this card---- the sentiment can go anywhere so that's ok... and then I took away that extra panel underneath it... and flipped it vertically. That makes it about 85% of this sketch! LOL! And to be reeeeeeeeeally honest... I'm just trying to justify my card! LOL! 
I created a simple Thank You card to keep in my stash. I actually might make 10 of these so I have them on hand! LOL! 
I used only PS dies for this card including the Paper Smooches Fringe, Fringe 2, and Thanks Word dies. I thought that the fringe dies worked really well with the different sized panels on the sketch! SUPER SUPER simple!  

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love


And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends July 4th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

Paper Smooches SPARKS: June Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is a Picture Perfect challenge.  







This week we are inspired by the following picture:

I think that there are lots of different things you could be inspired by from this photo. I went with the house theme (even though this is a child's bed... it looks like a house).

I created a super pretty friendship card using the Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalows stamps and matching dies. I used some new-to-me My Mind's Eye papers and pulled out my favorite Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko inks to finish this card. Simple but with lots of detail! LOVE it! 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends June 20th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I actually can't wait to see what you are inspired by in this photo!!

IMAGINE Crafts: Fabrico Marker RECAP

Hello, friends:)

Today I'm sharing a recap of my project over on the Imagine Crafts blog. Click HERE to check it out:) 




****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching this video! THANKS:)
I used the Tsukineko Fabrico Markers to create super fun sayings and words on my mug rugs. This is such an EASY project!  
Font and script from Silhouette store
Script was traced from Becky Higgins Project Life Inspired edition 6x6 paper pad.
These markers are so easy to use with fabric that I had some of my younger friends (ages 3, 4, and 15) help me out by making some more mug rugs!
Jordan, age 3
Jordan's project- lots of colored scribbles :)
Isaiah, age 4
Isaiah's mug rug had a boat, the sun, his name, and the word MOM :)
Love this photo--- Jordan's tongue is out! He was licking the marker off his fingers and the table. LOL! 
Emily, age 15
Emily's project had a beach scene. 

I hope that you will stop over on the Imagine Crafts blog HERE to check out my video or leave some love

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:)

Hello, friends:} 
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! Another Anything Goes challenge starts today!   
That's right--you get to create ANYTHING you want (as long as you use Paper Smooches stamps)!! This is the BEST challenge ever!!!

Today I created a CAS card for my dad--- for Father's Day. 
I used some super old Echo Park papers so I could join in my Sav Challenges:) I also used the PS Daddy YoAlphadot, and Spiffy Scooters stamp sets. I didn't use any dies--- although I tried! LOL! 
I really wanted to use the PS Apron die to create this chef apron... but I just couldn't get it to look right. I had probably 5 PS dies out and worked on a prototype for about an hour. After that time, I realized that I could just buy a Silhouette image and die cut it with my machine! LOL! 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love
