PPPR: Get Well Blog Hop

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! I am so excited because it's time for another blog hop using fabulous files from PPPR. This blog hop is all about getting well, I think this fits in perfectly this time a year with seasons switching over, well it does in Minnesota at least. If you came from Tanya's blog then your in the right spot.   If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog. I decided to make a 3D project for the hop, would you like to see it!?
I made a miniature little tissue box holder, I think it turned out so cute. The actual tissue box I got from the silhouette store, I got lazy and didn't want to make one from scratch. all the other elements on the box are made using files from PPPR. I used the following cutting files: Check up, Layered Labels 2 & Sentiment Spots 1.

You are my Sunshine!

Hello, I hope everyone is having a spectacular Wednesday so far!? It's my day to post over at Timeless Twine. This month we are joining up with the Robins Nest and I am here to share with you all, my second card using some yummy Timeless Twine and some dew drops from the Robins Nest.
This card was pretty simple to put together, I just used a wooden panel that had this sweet image and sentiment already printed on it by AC. my sweet little brad and glitter tape is also by AC. I added some Aqua Blue twine to frame around my dew drops.

I found the best way to add the dew drops to my project was by using my glossy accents, they hold  really well. This card was pretty quick and simple to make and I think it turned out pretty good. Be sure to head on over to the Timeless Twine Store & The Robins Nest, to see the products I used. I hope you all have a great day and happy crafting.

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!! This will be my first post for today, I will be back later with a post for Timeless Twine. Right now I am here to share with you a sweet card I made using, of course PPPR files.
For my card I used two different cutting files, I used: Valentine Kids & Layered Labels 2.
I just adore these sweet little children from this set, I think their so cute and you can mix and match them. I decided to hide her face and use some Peachy Keen stamps. My sentiment is from a Scrappy Mom's Stamp set titled: for your entertainment. My pattern paper came from a digital paper pack by, Carta Bella, true friends. I finished my card up by adding some buttons from my stash and adding some embossing to my mat and there you go, a completed card. Thank you all for stopping by, have a fantastic day!!

FCCB: Challenge #165 Wedding Days

Hello and happy Monday!! This is a bittersweet post today, this will be my last official post as a member of FCCB DT. I decided not to re-up my term as a design team member as of right now. This doesn't mean I am going away from blogging, I still have two amazing design teams I am apart of and possibly some other things in the works ;)
Well I guess you are all curious to know what this weeks challenge is, this weeks challenge is; create a wedding card or gift. I of course decided to make a card. I used my Good Old Day Cricut Imagine cartridge to make the main image on my card. Here it is....
My pattern paper is by American crafts, striped background paper is from: The Robins Nest. I added some Bubble Gum Pink & Kraft Brown, Timeless Twine. I added a couple of stick pins and a brown Prima Rose to finish it up & walla you have a wedding card. This was such a simple card to make but I think it turned out fabulous. I hope you will all find time to join in on the fun, have a fantastic day!!

10 Minute Craft Dash & Timeless Twine

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!! I am here to show you a project I made for the 10 Minute craft dash, which you can find over at, Pretty Pink Posh blog. Our very sweet Stacy is sponsoring this challenge with a fabulous twine package.
This is my very first time doing a challenge like this, and I tell you what, I do not work well under pressure!! My heart was pounding so fast by the time I was done with this card. I only had 3.5 minutes remaining by the time I finished, normally I am an hour per card kind a girl. Here is the card I made.....

It's pretty simple, but I think it turned out cute, what do you think!? All I can say is thank goodness for decorative adhesive chip board. I added some delicious Cherry Red, Timeless twine with a button for a little extra something. I got my chipboard elements from the Fine & Dandy true blue chipboard collection by My Minds Eye. The yellow paper is by Walnut Grove & the blue ticket paper is from American Crafts. I added a couple red sequences for a little bit of sparkle and badabing you have a 7 minute card. Make sure you head on over and join the challenge and you could be the lucky winner of some fabulous twine!!
Have a great day and be sure to take a peak at my earlier post to see my DT project for PPPR!!

PPPR DT Day!!!

Good Morning Everyone!! I just love Wednesdays, you know why? Its design team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I decided to create a fathers day card for my dad, at least I will have one off the list, now all I need is one for father-in-law and hubby. I used two different cutting files on my card, Boarders 4  & Baseball Jersey & Cap.

My dad is a big sports nut, so I think this fits him perfectly. These boarders are just so fun and easy to put together and I love how you can make a background out of them. My sentiment came from My Pink Stamper, Happiest moments stamp set. I added some yummy Cherry Red, Timeless Twine with a cute star button from my button stash. My big red sticker letters are by AC and to finish it up I added some sequences. I hope you all enjoy my card and thanks for stopping by!!

FCCB:Challenge #163 - Ribbons, Ruffles & Bows

Happy Monday everyone!! It's time for another challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut challenge blog. This weeks challenge is all about "ribbons, ruffles & bows" all you need to do is make a project using two types of ribbon, and of course you need to have a cricut cut somewhere on your creation. Here is the card I came up with....
Okay, I know we are still about a month away from this holiday, but I just had this card pop into my mind. For my card I used the adorable "Teddy Bear Parade" cricut cartridge. The scalloped circle in the background is a spellbinder die, I embossed it using my Darice, stars assortment embossing folder. The patterned paper I couldn't even begin to tell you the brand of it, I have had it for longer than I can remember. I added some white seam binding ribbon (crinkle ribbon) and some yummy Firecracker, Timeless twine and a button from my stash. The Sentiment comes from a, My Pink Stamper stamp set called "Happiest Moments". I hope you all enjoy my sweet Fourth of July card, I can't wait to see everyone's creations. Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!!
