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.

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.

She's That Girl


Hello and happy Tuesday, it is going to be another really hot day outside so that means staying inside until I leave for the day. It won't be much cooler when I leave either but it is suppose to be a few degrees cooler today than yesterday!

Today's project share is a LO that I worked on while I was at the crop on Saturday, for some reason I can't ever really complete a project while I'm at the crop always need to add something else when I get home.  When putting this LO, I really just used mostly scraps of paper, the two pattern pieces came from the DCWV Homeroom Stack., tag was leftover from another project and the wooden veneers are from American Crafts.  I cut the title using the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge and the car is from the Locker Talk cartridge.

Wednesday Wanderings


Hello and happy Wednesday, warm temps and more rain in the forecast this evening.  Today I am sharing a card that I put together for the June Stash Challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, the stash item is a wood background.  I used paper from the Love Nicole time machine 6x6 paper pad, a Spellbinders die, an unbranded stitched circle die and a few rhinestone stars, I think I may need to add a few more!   I'm also sharing this card for the any holiday challenge #358 over at Hiding in my Craft Room and challenge # 42 - Make it Masculine over at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful Wednesday.

Lego Card


Hello and happy Tuesday, seasonal temps in the forecast for today and hopefully no rain.  Today I am sharing a card that I have been wanting to try for a while and was super excited when Tracey from Gift Basket Appeal  shared one recently.  A great way to use scraps and it came together rather quickly with the only exception of cutting the adhesive tape, I'll use pop dots the next time!  The sentiment came from the Stampabilities card phrases set.   Now I just have to wait for the perfect opportunity to give this card to a lego enthusiast.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #53 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Happy 100th


Good evening, I am back today for another post to share a card that I finished while I was at the crop today.  I used sketch inspiration from challenge #269 from  Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge more paper from my scrap stash, the banner and balloon were cut with my Crafter's Companion Diamond Press machine, heat embossed the sentiment and added a few Nicole adhesive nail heads.  I am sharing this card for the embossing challenge #374 over at DIie Cuttin' Divas.  Take care and come back soon.

Happy Anniversary


Hello and happy start to a new week, seasonal weather in the forecast today that includes heat, humidity and rain.  I am headed to a crop today and of course I am not ready!  Today's project share was put together using sketch inspiration from challenge #368 over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.   It is a shaker card, I used paper from one of the DCWV cutting machine cardstock pads, the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut set  and the shaker mix is from Recollections.  This is one of those cards that looks better in person!  Than you for your visit,  hope you will return soon.

Happy 4th


Hello and happy Saturday, more cloudiness and rain in today's forecast.  My plan today is to clean and do some organizing and planning since I am going to a crop tomorrow.  I sure hope I get more done than I did the last time!  Today's card share is one that I made using inspiration from Fall to Layout 76 Take Two from Palm Trees & Pogo Sticks, which is the new home for Clean & Simple Stamping sketches.  I loved this sketch and I like my finished card, used more scraps of paper, twine, a star punch and lots of dimensional tape!  Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Friday Musings


Hello and happy Friday, cloudy and humid in our area with calls for showers on and off most of the day.  This rain has been furious with major flooding causing the airport to shut down this morning and people having to be rescued from cars.  Today's card share is one that I put together using sketch inspiration from #458 over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The pattern paper is from Studio G, old misc. paper that has been in my stash for a long time, some Paper Studio ribbon that I picked up during HL's clearance sales, some unbranded stitched oval dies and a stamp from Cardz TV.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #53 over at Cardz TV.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend.

Minimester


Hello and happy Thursday, hot and rain showers this evening in our area again today.  Today's project share is another LO for baby girl's high school album.  I sure hope I can catch up this summer so when school starts in September I won't be stressing!  I created the LO using inspiration from sketch #155 over at Sketch N Scrap.  I used papers from the Authentique  Curiosity collection, some DCWV High School themed brads that have been in my stash forever, Me & My Big Ideas stickers,  and Jillibean chipboard letters for the title.  I am sharing this LO for the Shopping Our Stash challenge #359 - She's a Craftin' Machine.  I used my SLICE to cut the SC die and my Cuttlebug to cut the circle using the WeR Memory Keepers circle die set.  Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll come back again soon.

Father's Day


Hello and happy Sunday,  it's going to be hot today; baby girl and I are taking a little road trip.  We are going to see my parents and hopefully we will make it in time for church.  Today I am sharing a tile that I did after watching a video from Gift Basket Appeal , I really enjoy watching her YT videos.   I created the card using a Unity stamp (baby girl did the coloring),  and more paper from the Bella Blvd paper pad.  The card and tile both were created as part of the FNCC on Scraps of Color. Take care, enjoy your day and come back again soon.
