First Day of School

Today's project is a LO of our daughter's first day of school this year.  We were running late so we really didn't have alot of  time so I had to hurry to snap a few pictures.  When my daughterfirst seen the completed LO she said  "wow that's nice, I like that" so it has been teen approved!

The double sided pattern paper is Bazzill and some that I picked up a few weeks ago at Tuesday Morning.  I'm not sure whether you can see it in the picture or not but I did emboss one layer with a cuttlebug folder, not sure of the name right now but it was a gift to me.  Everything else used has been in my stash for quite sometime, I used my cameo to cut the polaroid frame.  I didn't want to overembellish the LO because of the busy paper and I only used one picture.

Wishing you and yours a great weekend, what fun Fall things do you have planned?

Friday Night Chat

Today I am sharing the cards that I  made for the challenges for the Scraps of Color Friday Night Chat.  We had a really good time hanging out Friday celebrating Vivian's retirement from the Air Force, MJ was our hostess and in addition to the challenges, we had the opportunity to win some goodies.  We always have so much fun when we get together.

Challenge #1 - We created HELLO cards that included an inside note to a hero.  I was trying to use up the last few sheets of paper from the MME Moments 6x6 paper pad, I still have enough for one more card!  The hello stamp is one from Hero Arts.  Challenge #2 - We created cards using a provided sketch along with the colors pink and brown, I used paper from a Crate Paper pad, along with my cuttlebug, slice and another hero arts stamp.  Challenge #3 - We created friendship cards that had to include the use of a border punch, flowers and bling.  I used paper from The Paper Studio So-So Sweet paper pad, stickers from Me & My Big Ideas and Recollections bling.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful week.

Hello Friday

Today's simple card was created using inspiration from sketch #307 from Clean & Simple Stamping.  This card too took many twists and turns before I decided it was done!  The flower is from Recollections, the glittered adhesive tape is from American Crafts, I used my SLICE to cut the little tag and the sentiment is from a CTMH a stamp set.  You can't get any simpler than that! Wishing you and yours a great weekend

Happy Fall

Back today to share another simple card that I finally had to throw in the towel and call it finished and done!  Originally I was trying to stamp a background but for some reason I could never get it done to my satisfaction so I just decided to use pattern paper instead.  All papers used are from the DCWV Year Round Paper Stack, I used a edge punch and added a leaf brad from my stash.  The sentiment was cut using the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge.  I'm sure I'll be sharing more Fall themed cards within the next few weeks before I pack up for my weekend retreat.

The inspiration and sketch for the card came from Clean & Simple Stamping, I am also sharing this card for the Think Fall challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room and the Fall Color challenge over at Mema's Crafts.

Stay Cool

Hello and happy Monday, today I am sharing a card that I made for one of our nephews birthday.   He turns 13 on Saturday and he thinks he is so cool so he will get a chuckle out of this card.  I cut the fan using the Suburbia cricut cartridge, cut the letters with  my sizzix sidekick and I used paper from an old DCWV paper stack called Indian Summer Fall Stack.  I am sharing this card for  Week 36: This ~or~ That. "Beat the Heat" or "Keeping Cool." blog challenge over at Scraps of Color.  Wishing you and yours a great week.

Back2School Shopping

I am back today to share a LO that I started several weeks ago and finally finished this morning, it uses pictures taken of my daughter during one of her back to school shopping trips.  We actually shop all summer but we took these pictures one weekend while we were on a little weekend getaway.  The LO actually looks better in person, I cut the title using the Designer Calendar and Wall Decor and More cartridges.  I used a TH kraft glassine pocket to hold some of the tags and the butterfly paperclip is from K&Co, the file folder is from Jo-Ann's and has been in my stash forever along with the other embellishments.

I am sharing this LO for the following challenges:
Scraps of Color - Back to School
Hiding in my Craft Room - #163 Freestyle
Scrap Our Stash- Stash Challenge #18 Back to School

Thank you for your visit, have a wonderfully blessed weekend.

Gift Bag

Today's project is an altered gift bag, my daughter will be attending another party on Saturday so I decided to alter the gift bag.  She chose some AC pattern paper ( that's the extent of her participation) and  I used the cricut Teen Scene cartridge for the first time to cut the doll.  All other embellishments used were purchased for this project or in my stash.  I now realize I should have added a mat since the paper is so busy, oh well there's always next time! I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day.
