Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!!!

Happy Saturday!!! You know what that means another fabulous challenge from Wee Memories!!!

The challenge is one of my favorite techniques and that is PAPER PIECING!!!!

This weeks sponsor is Tiffany Doodles and I had the pleasure of working with this gorgeous flower!!! I finally figured out on my new computer how to print out digital images which was a relief since I do have to work with them once in awhile!!!

I re sized my image and then printed it on a few different DP and cut and pieced together the flower. I used some fun colorful paper from K and Company.

Make sure to check out the Wee memories Blog for the full details on the RULES for this challenge!!! Also go check out the other fabulous Dt members the cards are amazing!!!!

I will be back tomorrow with some Unity
Also Paper Maniac has a fabulous sale going on that you don't want to miss out on!!!

Happy Monday!!!

Happy Monday!!! I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter Weekend!!! our Easter was nice and quiet it was A great day!!!!

It's a new week which means a new challenge and I have to say it was a challenge!!!

Make a card with NO SENTIMENT!!!! You know how much I love my sentiments so this was a hard one for me!!!

I decided the easiest way to go about this was make a note card set. Very CAS but love the turnout!!!

I used the Now and Always kit and again it was a great stamp to try out my new Faber Castell products this time I used the Gelatos they look like chap stick and you just rub them right onto your stamp as you can see I rubbed a couple different colors on the stamp and then you spray a little water onto the stamp after you add you color and then stamp onto your paper and dry with your craft dryer.

Make sure to check out the Ippity blog for all the ladies taking part in today little hop!!!

Get Sketchy


happy Friday it's Get Sketchy time this week we are sponsored by Hazel Olive Designs there are some amazing Digi kits over at two Peas. I had never worked with Digi kits before so I kinda took the easy way out and just worked with the papers and I love it!!! The sentiment for my card is from PTI.

Happy FRIDAY and FWF!!!!

Happy Friday wow where did the week go it went by to fast with the kids home on break!!

I have a couple butterfly cards to share with you today and Unity has an amazing variety of butterfly stamps!!!

This first card I used a Webster pages Itty Bitty. I also just recently got a little crafting money and decided instead of spending it on stamps that I have way to much of to begin with I would try some new Color mediums I am sure you have heard all the buzz about Faber Castell so I decided to buy some of their products and give it a go. I am not big on coloring things in or even that good at it but if I have a chance to try something new I will!!! For my cards today I used The Big Brush Tip markers and I love them and they work so good with the Unity stamps.

The Dp is Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden!!

This second card again I used the Brush tip markers and they way you use them is color right on the stamp the tip is nice and big and you are not going to ruin the tip when you color onto your stamp. The Dp I used for this card is Lillibee designs. the stamps are from the March KOTM fro Unity.

Make sure to make you way to the Unity blog and you can link up your creation there through the Linky tool. There is also chances to win some great Unity so check out the details!!!

have a great Friday!!!!!

Echo Park Project!!!

Happy Wednesday!!! Today I am sharing a project that a friend asked me to do as a gift for someone. I picked the Echo Park For The Record Collection I thought it would be perfect just because I could do Masculine and girly cards with this collection. When I do a project like this I really like to use these collection packs so everything matches and goes well together!!!

The box I got from Taylored Expressions store and I used various sentiment sets from Annabelle Stamps, There She Goes,Hero Arts,and Practicing Creativity. That's it it was pretty quick some of the cards I already had made and there was a couple more that I made to add to the collection.

Have a Fabulous Day and thanks for stopping by!!!!
