Teddy Friend


Hello!  I'm so sorry for my lack of posts this week!  It's been busy and I've been working on some DT projects.  Last night I found some time to sit down and color up this adorable Stampavie Gillian Roberts image called Teddy and Me.  Isn't it just soooooo sweet?!  I thought I would enter it into this week's Stampavie Challenge~Summer, and I also wanted to play in this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge~Going Dotty!  I used some fun dotty dp from October Afternoon's Fly A Kite paper pad. 

I'll be back Sunday to participate in the Anni-VERVE-sary blog hop and on Monday I will have a special announcement!  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a super fabulous weekend:)

Two Final DTGD Challenge Projects!


Hello!  Well I can officially call myself a challenge Queen because I completed all the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SCS!!!  I am running short on time this week, so I had to make my final two projects pretty simple.  This first one was for the Pretty Packaging Challenge.  I used this super cute template from Perfect Presentation called Cute Carton.  This is the smaller 1 sheet version and it's just so adorable!!!  I paper pieced this gorgeous bloom from the PTI set Delightful Dahlia with some Making Memories Chloe's Closet dp. 

This was for the Just Faux You Challenge to use no patterned paper, ribbon, or other embellishments unless you made them, and for the CAS color on color challenge.  I used my new PTI School Time set which I am going to have sooooo much fun with!  I stamped the alphabet background with Real Red onto Pure poppy for the color on color part of the challenge.  The bottom is embossed with the PTI Picnic Plaid Impression Plate, and I used my new Large Scallop Border Die as well.  Very CAS:)  Well, I have a ton to do, so I'm off.  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your day!

All That Scraps Challenge and DTGD


Hello!  This week's All That Scraps Challenges is to create Anything But A Card.  I decided to work in a couple of Dare To Get Dirty Challenges as well~Birthday of All Shapes and Sizes, and Treats For All Seasons. 


I used this adorable set from C.C. Designs Called Sugarplums Party.  The box is a fabulous template from Perfect Presentation called Favor Box (available in svg,  pdf, and gsd) and the dp is My Mind's Eye Ooh La La.  I also used some gorgeous Gingham Ribbon on the handle from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Speaking of Really Reasonable Ribbon~Don't forget about the current inspiration challenge going on now!  You have until the 31st to complete your projects and be in for the chance to win a $10.00 RRR Gift Certificate!!!


The sentiment on the card comes from the Verve set Big Wish.  I just love that set:)

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Pretty in Pink!


Hello!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  This week's All That Scraps Challenge is to create a monochromatic card.  Now I have to admit, monochromatic challenges intimidate me, and I usually shy away from them.  I decided to be brave and give this one a go:)

I used this totally adorable image from C.C. Designs called Lil' Bug Emma.  I colored her with lots of different shades of pink Copic markers, and paired her with some SU Sending Love Specialty DSP.  I also used the layout from this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch~SSS65 with a spin to use a tag. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your day!

Project Featured In ScrapStreet.com Magazine!

Don't forget about the Your Next Stamp DT Call going on NOW!!!  You have until July 31st to apply!



Hello!  Well I was very excited a couple of month's ago when I was asked to create one of my gift sets for ScrapStreet.com Magazine!  It is published in this month's edition which you can see HERE

For my card, I used this adorable image from Your Next Stamp called Cupcake Cutie Fhiona and some dp from October Afternoon~Fly A Kite. 

For my box I used the awesome template from Perfect Presentation called Hey Cupcake which is available in both svg and pdf files.  I stamped some stems from the PTI set Blooming Button Bits, and punched out the flowers with my EK Success Retro Flower Punches.  The sentiment is from that set as well.

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  My daughter has spent the last week at grandma and grandpa's house, so we are heading to their house to pick her up.  I know she won't want to come home LOL!  She never does:)

Lots of Inspiration!


Hello!  It's time for another Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge and this gorgeous gift box from The Container Store is our inspiration today:)  I took the challenge quite literally this time and came up with this:



I made a little gift box:)  I was actually going to make a card too, but trying to figure out how to make that tulle bow took me FOREVAH!  It looks just like a net shower sponge doesn't it LOL?  I thought this dp from the Baisic Grey Green at Heart collection looked similar to the wrapping paper.  I didn't have any light pink tulle so I went with this fun hot pink color.  The sentiment is from the Your Next Stamp set Elegant Greetings which I just LOVE!  Make sure you check out what the other Divas created:



It's also time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge, and this time it's an inspiration challenge as well!  There are actually 3 pictures that you can choose from which you can see HERE on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  I chose this pretty lady in yellow and this is what I came up with:


I was inspired by the colors, the pleated ribbon, and those yoyo flowers, so I pleated a ribbon border using some gorgeous Yellow Stripe Grosgrain and made a yoyo flower using some Swiss Dots Grosgrain Orange.  The layout comes from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #77.  We hope you'll play along with us for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store



Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're feeling inspired:)

This month's Ribbon Club Assortment is all about black and white!  Such a fabulous collection!!!  This is what I came up with:



I thought it would be fun to stick with the black and white theme, with a pop of color:)  I stamped my background with a stamp from the PTI Text Style set, matted it with some black cs, and added some black stitching.  I used 3 of the ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment~Gingham Black, Black with White Stitches, and Swiss Dots Grosgrain Black.  I really like how the different patterns look together.  Finally I added a big bloom cut from felt with my Sizzix Bigz Die Build a Flower #2 and some butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, now head on over to Trudy's amazing blog and make sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win your very own Ribbon Club Assortment!    Oh, and don't forget about our fabulous challenges on the 1st and 15th of each month!  Play along for more chances to win!!!  Have a wonderful day:)

Please scroll down for the new Your Next Stamp Challenge!


Hello!  Well I finally had a chance to sit down and play with my other new PTI set All About You Additions!  I just fell in love with these adorable blooms, and that super cute bee:)  I decided to make this colorful and fun, so I used some fabulous dp from a new company called Echo Park Paper Co.  This line is called Sweet Summertime and I LOVE it!!!  I stamped the flower image twice so I could cut them out and pop them up for some dimension.  The layout comes from this week's Sketch Saturday sketch


My second card is much more CAS.  I made this for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS.  I used this gorgeous bloom from the PTI set A Year of Flowers: Violet.  I paper pieced it with some SEI Claire dp and the sentiment is from the PTI set Delightful Dahlia.  That's it for me!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your day:)
