Lady Falcons


Hello and happy rainy Thursday, its cold and windy but no snow flurries in our area for that I'm thankful!  Today's project share is another LO for my daughter's high school album, these are bittersweet as she is in her senior year.  I just used misc. pictures from some of this season's games, I still need to add the journaling on the yellow strips. Everything used has been in my stash for quite some time, the only exception is the volleyball pattern paper that I picked up in HL a few weeks ago. The dimensional stickers came from two different Me&My Big Ideas sticker packs, I cut the title using the Mickey Font and CTMH Cricut cartridges and the doll came from the Teen Scene cartridge. I'm sharing this LO for the Use Your Stuff challenge #337.

Thank you for your visit, hope you'll return soon; I'll be sharing my latest design team project tomorrow.

Saturday Musings


Good morning and happy Saturday, I am doing a quick driveby post as I need to get dressed and out the door!  Today's card share is one hot off the press and created using inspiration from Fall to Layout #96 - Take 2 over at  Palm Trees and Pogo Sticks.  I was looking for a die when I came across this scrap of  pattern paper and decided to use for this card, used more scraps for the border and added it to the card base after I sponged it with some distress ink.  I also added some wink-a-stellar to some of the trees but it's not really visible in the picture.  I am sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #73 over at Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a great day.

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy Wednesday, sunny skies today after lots of rain yesterday.  I am glad the mid-terms are over as I was getting tired of the political ads, texts and speeches!  Today I am sharing a quick drive by post of some post it note holders that I created using inspiration from a video shared by Maymay on YT a few weeks ago; this is not a new project but just one that she did from one of her viewer's suggestions!  I used 110 lb card stock for the base, misc. pattern papers and some CTMH stamps for the sentiments.  The typewriter die is from Sizzix, the stitched squares were cut using unbranded dies, added a few flowers as embellishments and this project was done! 

I hope you have a wonderful visit and that you'll stop by again soon.

Card Sharing


Hello and happy rainy Monday, it is cold too after some nice weekend temps.  Today I am sharing some super simple holiday cards that I created at the request of a card angel she is collecting cards to give to homeless  kids. I created these cards after watching Mary's video where she used one sheet of 6x6 paper to create five cards, I decided to just use her measurements but using mostly scraps from the same paper pad.  The paper that  I used  is from an older Recollections 6x6 pad, I think the name of it is Sugar Plum.  I used different stamps for the sentiments and enamel dots from Paper Studio and Recollections.  I have five more cards to make but I will use paper from a different pad. I'm sharing this post for the Anything Goes challenge #72 over at Cardz TV and  the Love to Craft Challenge Blog #28 Anything Goes.

Thank you for your visit, have a marvelous Monday!

Hello and happy Thursday, mild seasonal temps after a beautiful weather day for the Trick-or -Treaters yesterday.  We had lots of fun participating in a Trunk or Treat at the church, lots of fun in the parking lot and inside the gym! 

Today's card share is another project created after watching another project share from Tracy on YT,  I had to make a few modifications but I am please with the outcome!  The color is a little bit off because of the lighting.  I used more paper from the Love Nicole Time Machine 6x6 paper pad.  I cut the grass, sign post and the ladybug using the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge,  used a Love Nicole die for the sentiment, added a few other embellishments and the card was done.  I'm sharing this card the Anything Goes challenge #71 over at Cardz TV. and the Anything Goes challenge #393 over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

Hello and happy Friday, seasonal temps in our area today.

Today I'm back tto share my design team project for Cut it Up, the theme for challenge #159 is Just in CASE, case another crafter's project.  I had a hard time trying to decide what to do for this challenge.

Hamilton


Hello and happy warm Wednesday, more sunny skies and warm temps in today's forecast for our area.  Today I am sharing a another LO from my daughter's senior year, last month she went to Washington, DC to see Hamilton.  I was so excited that I wanted to tag along, but they didn't need any parent chaperones.  The school she attends received a grant that afforded the students taking History and or Government the opportunity to attend after they submitted a project.  Since the playbill cover and the ticket stub took up the majority of the page I didn't need to add too many other elements to the page.  A picture of baby girl, a small tag and a few wood veneer stars and this memory was documented!  I'm sharing this LO over at Cardz TV for the Anything Goes Challenge #67.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon.

Super Quick Treat Holder


Hello and happy Monday, I am doing a quick post; I meant to post this yesterday but as life would have it I didn't get to share.  The sun is shining and the forecast calls for temps in the lower 80s.  It looks like fall has taken over my blog  I was watching one of  MayMay's  older YT videos and decided to make this super quick treat holder, I did make some size adjustments to accommodate the treat that I was using.  The leaf pattern paper was some scraps from last year's Fall projects and I think I picked it up in HL so it is probably Paper Studio.  I cut the leaf using a Darice die, stamped a sentiment, used some ribbon and twine and this project was done!  I will probably make a different variation of this for my co-workers.  I'm sharing this super simple project for the Fall colors challenge # over at Die Cuttin' Divas and challenge #372 - Freestyle over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.  I will be sharing the winner of my blog candy from our Cut it Up Fall blog hop.

Paper Weaving


Hello and happy cloudy Tuesday, more rain in today's forecast but hopefully nothing like yesterday.  One death and at least five tornadoes touched down in our area yesterday, we had to shelter in place at work for almost two hours.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together after watching one of Nicole Nowoad's videos from  Scrapbook and Cards, she was creating a LO which I plan to do later but I thought I'd try the technique on a card since I had some scraps that I wasn't  ready to toss from a 6x6  paper pad.  I used some TH distress ink to color the base of the card, after I finished the weaving I added a Prima flower to the center, scattered  a few gems and stamped a sentiment.  I really like how this card came out and I hope my cousin enjoys it!  I am sharing it for the Anything Goes challenge #65 over at Cardz TV, challenge #26 over at LTCCB and the September challenge over at Always Happy Birthday.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.

Birthday Princess


Hello and happy Sunday, I started this post some time ago but for some reason I never shared it!  Happy to report we were spared by Forence but praying and thinking about others that weren't so fortunate.  Today's project share is a LO using pictures I took of baby girl the morning of her birthday as she was headed to school.  I used sketch inspiration from an online crop that I participated in last month.  The base sheet is cardstock from either a DCWV or Recollections pad and the patterns papers are from my scrap stash.  I used my Cricut to cut the crown and the word Princess, handcut and put the banner together; everything else has been in my stash for quite sometime.  School has stared and I really need to get on track with her school book.

Thank you for your visit and please come again soon.

Ki Memories Celebrate 6x6 paper pad,  the Spellbinders Celebrations pierced star die set and a few Queen & Co.  gems.  I am sharing this card for the September challenge over at Always Happy Birthday and the Anything Goes Challenge #64 over at Cardz TV.

Twinning


Hello and happy Monday and Labor Day!  Today's project share is indeed a labor of love as baby girls grows into a young woman it really tugs at my heart!  I used a picture that was taken of us in July as we had decided to dress alike at a family event.

I used sketch inspiration from a grid challenge  shared by Organized and Creative Mom.  I used mostly scraps of paper from my stash,  the Fantastic Fonts, Going Places and the 50 States Cricut cartridges.  The embellishments are from Me & My Big Ideas, Recollections, Amy Tangerine and Jillibean Soup.
 
I am sharing this LO for the Mother - Daughter  challenge#56 over at Challenge Yourself and the challenge #384 - What Makes You Happy over at  Die Cuttin' Divas.  One thing that makes me happy is documenting my family's history by scrapbooking.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hello Friday


Hello and welcome to the weekend, more seasonal temps in the forecast today with the possibility of more rain.  Yesterday we had a lightning and rain storm which resulted in outside sports events being postponed.  Today is my DH's birthday so I am sharing one of the cards that I made for him.  I used sketch inspiration from sketch #279 from Atlantic Hearts, some paper scraps that have been in my stash for years.  I think the paper may be from WeR Memory Keepers but I'm not sure, but I really like the patterns but it makes it hard to see the other layered strips!  I cut the word DAD using the Create-a-Critter 2 Cricut cartridge, added a stamped sentiment and a wood veneer heart and this card was done.  I am also sharing this card for the Anything Goes Challenge #63 over at  Cardz TV.

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday weekend and I hope you will return soon.

Back to School


Hello and happy Wednesday, less rain in today's forecast.  Where does the time go, I need more hours in my days!  Today's project share is a card that I created for my daughter as it her last year of high school so I wanted something a little more grown up for her.  These are exciting, bittersweet  and emotional times for us.  When putting the card together I looked at several different sketches but decided to just go my own way using miscellaneous papers, a Paper Studio embossing folder for the bricks, diecuts from the Teen Scene and Wild Card 2 Cricut Cartridges, stamped the sentiment and added a piece of washi tape.  I'm sharing this card for the Back to School challenges over at Die Cuttin' Divas and Bitten by the Bug2.

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back soon.
