If you came here from Barb's  blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog. This bloghop is all about "Back to School" and of course it wouldn't be a PPPR bloghop without using some PPPR files. Here is my Back to School inspired project....
 Isn't my glue bottle just adorable!? I used the Primary Supplies Cutting File, to first print then cut my glue bottle I just got rid of the school glue part so I could use a Peachy Keen face instead. I then proceeded to print and cut one bottle as one layer, I then un-grouped and re-cut one so I could get all the different layers to give it some dimension. I also used some Pumpkin Orange, Timeless Twine, to spell out the word learn and made it coming out of the tip of my glue bottle.

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-32 :: Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday to all my crafty bloggy friends out there! I feel like it's been forever since I joined in on a challenge over at Peachy Keen. Hopefully this will be the first of many cards to end the somewhat dry spell for challenges. This weeks challenge is a sketch, here is the sketch we got our inspiration from.
Here is my card
For my card I used the PKSC-18 June 2013 and the SVG files that go along with them. I decided I wanted to use up some scraps of paper I had so I cut all the shapes of my images out first then stamped them. I used my white gel pen to color in their eyes and used my Spectrum Noirs on parts of all of my sea creatures. I added some stickles (Yellow, Tropical Tangerine) to the fins of my fish and I added some glossy accents to the little tentacle suckers on my octopus.
Other items used
Sentiment from Scrappy Mom Stamps (Beach Bums)
Ric-Rac ribbon from stash
Sequences from stash
Papers are from Misc. Scraps from: American Crafts & Crate Paper
I hope you all enjoy my card and I want to thank you all for stopping by. Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see my DT project for Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons!!

Make a Wish: TT DT Day

Hello Everyone, it's my day to post over at the Timeless Twine Blog, yippee. I have a birthday card to share with you today, that I made for my momma for her birthday tomorrow. I used two of the yummy new twines, from the new Sorbet Collection on my card, KeyLime Sorbet and Razzleberry Sorbet. 
This card was all made using the print and cut feature on my silhouette, I am loving this feature so much. All my elements came from the digital kit by AC called Emma's Shoppe. I added some doodling to the yellow doily, glitter to the horses mane, glossy accents to gumball machine and misc. rhinestone throughout the card. I made a sweet little tassel with the new Razzleberry twine and just sporadically laid out the Key lime & stuck down with glossy accent.
If you are interested in this yummy new twine it is available in the store just click HERE.
