Sew Together Challenge #2

I'm a little late getting this entry posted. My kids and I caught a bug , thankfully not H1N1, and now I'm running so far behind I don't think I'll ever get caught up again. So here's the details on this week's challenge -- make a Halloween project using the following colors: yellow, purple, neutrals (white, not black), red and pink. You can use as many or as few as you choose. You have until midnight on Monday, Sept 7, to post your entry here. The winner will get 5 free Sewn Together digital stamps. Angela even has a free Halloween stamp available thru Thursday. Be sure and check out all the super cute projects from the design team and then get busy creating your own. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Have a great day. God bless you.

Paper Cutz Challenge #6

Hi everyone. This week's Paper Cutz Challenge is too make a baby card, project, or layout using yellow, green and orange? Yikes!! I was really stuck on this one until I found a few scraps of stripe paper from the HOTP Citrus pack (I love the paper in this pack!). The yellow paper is from the same pack. The green card stock came from my stash and was embossed using my Cuttlebug. I used the 20 Blossoms template from HOTP for the flowers.

Be sure and check out all the great projects from the rest of the design team at PPC, and then join the fun by entering a project of your own. Good luck! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend. God bless!

Sewn Together Challenge #1

Hi everyone. I hope you're having a great week. It's time for the very first challenge over at Sewn Together Digital Stamps. The challenge is to make a card, layout, or other paper craft using your favorite Sewn Together design. I couldn't decide which stamp was my favorite, but this one of Miki is one of them. This card was so much fun to make. The stamp was colored with Bic markers. The paper is from the HOTP Citrus pack. The ovals and tags were cut with my Cricut using the George and Basic Shape cartridge. I made the little envelope using a template I found on the internet a while ago. I used my Cuttlebug to cut the letters and flowers, and everything was inked using Tim Holtz Black Distress Ink. Be sure to check out all the design team's projects and then join the fun by submitting one of your own. Angela has 2 Christmas stamps you can download for free, and this week's challenge winner gets 3 free stamps, so get busy everyone. Thanks for stopping by. God bless you!

Paper Cutz Challenge #5

It's time again for another great challenge at Paper Cutz. This week's challenge is to make a card, layout, or other paper craft using something that flies -- butterflies, birds, etc. My lo is a little different. I hope Mary doesn't mind. I've been working on scrapping last summer's Disney vacation, so this is what I came up with. It looks better irl. There's pixie dust (white glitter) on some of the words and the picture on the right that really doesn't show up well in the picture.

It didn't turn out exactly as I had planned, but my projects rarely do. Let me know what you think, and be sure to check out all the great projects from the other design team members. Mary is giving away a set of Spring and Summer Brad Buddies from HOTP to the winner of this week's challenge, so be sure to submitted your entry by midnight (eastern time) Thursday. Thanks for stopping by.

Paper Cutz Challenge -- Week # 4

I am a design team member for a great blog -- Paper Cutz Challenge. PPC has weekly challenges with great prizes. I wanted to share with you my take on this week's challenge -- design a Halloween card, lo, or project without using black or orange. This was my first attempt at iris folding, and I really enjoyed it. I can't wait to try again with patterned paper. I used the "fork" method on my bow. The cs, ribbon, and brads were all from my stash. The iris folding pattern came from here. This site has several free patterns available.
Check out the Paper Cutz Challenge blog to see the awesome projects created by the rest of the design team.


Hello and welcome to my blog. I am a part-time SAHM and part-time accountant. I started scrapping right after my oldest daughter was born 12 years ago. For the next 11 years, demands from my family and work really limited my crafting time. During the last few months, I've had more time to scrap and I've also gotten into making cards. I love trying new techniques and projects. I look forward to meeting you and sharing ideas. Thanks for stopping by. God bless you.
