Doodle Notebook...

Here I am showing a notebook that I covered with this cute monster paper I printed using my Imagine. Emma from My Creative Time has inspired me to dust off my Imagine and put it to use. I also love this new cartridge and decided that I really needed to use it.

I used the print and cut for this paper and cut two pieces out at 7.4 to make sure that I could cover both the front and the back of the notebook. I then traced the notebook, cut where I traced, and then used my corner chomper to round the corners just like the notebook. I inked the edges using Distress Ink in Peeled Paint, wrapped the ribbon around the notebook and then tied it & used my ATG on the back of the notebook.  Since I had some paper left I used my Epiphany Crafts (round 25) to cut out a few monster faces, used the die from Build a Banner Kit to cut out the pieces behind the faces, and then hot glued them on to the ribbon. 

I am entering this into the challenge over at For Your Inspiration Challenges - Challenge 24.

 Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you like my doodle notebook.

Thank You - Inspiration Challenge card

I am entering this card into a challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks #78 Inspiration Challenge and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #99 Fancy Trims

The paper is from that I ordered and haven't had a chance to use. Since one of the challenges is color inspired so I thought lets use this new paper. I think its adorable and works perfectly for this challenge. I rounded the corners using my corner chomper, inked the edges using Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, & the ribbon was in my stash. I cut the "Thank You" from Lovely Floral Cricut cartridge and I think that was a little over 4 inches long. I think this card looks clean and simple.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

DCWV February Stack A Holic Sketch Challenge

Here is my entry for the DCWV February Stack A Holic Template Challenge. Below is a copy of the sketch that you have to follow. I actually had another layout but decided to go with this one instead. I will post that one at a later date.

I used an older stack for this challenge called The Celebration Stack that was available at Joann's. Since my husband's 40th birthday just passed I thought I have a great picture in mind to use on this layout.

This was a simple layout. I cut out everything from this stack and used it to follow this sketch except for the "Happy" chipboard letters. I love the colors in this stack and think it is a stack that I am going to dust off and use more often. 

Here is a picture of the sketch

You Make Me Smile

I recieved my order from the other day and decided that I would us it to make a card for the challenge over at Fetch A Sketch Challenge 18 and Celebrate the Occassion Challenge 51. I love the colors on this paper and the fact that it is all vintage looking including the embelishments.   I used some kraft cardstock from papertrey ink, used my 1/2" crop-a-dile corner chomper to round the corners, inked the edges with Distress Ink in Old Paper, and then cut the ribbon that came with this kit to follow the sketch.

I think I might send this to my sister so that she knows I am thinking about her. Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy my card.

My Craft Spot Challenge #45 - Birthday Shaped Card

I made this card to enter in to the birthday shaped card challenge over at My Craft Spot -  Challenge #45.  I used my Gypsy to make this shaped card and used my new cartridge Life's A Party. It has some cute images on it and even some 3D items. The paper I used is called Beach Bum from Fancy Pants that I bought from  I think it looks kinda 70's inspired because of the colors. I think I might give this to a friends son for his birthday. Thank you for taking a look at my project today.

Birthday Boots card

For this card I used some white cardstock and cute it at 5.5 by 11 inches.  I then folded the sides at about 2 3/4 inches.  I made the cute boots using my Paisley Cricut cartridge since Emma's challenge is use a bug I liked the little ladybugs on the boots although you can't really see them in the picture.  I then make the scalloped circle and circle using my Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge. I inked the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink. Simple, cute, easy card that I am going to give to a friend of mine for her birthday.  



LOVE -- Valentine's Card

Here is another Valentine card. I am really loving this time of year. Maybe because red is one of my favorite colors :)

For this card I used my Gypsy to weld the card together and then made a copy for the front of the card. I am really loving this K&Company paper I bought at Michaels that I think is called Valentine. I cute out the LOVE letters and then misted them with Perfect Pearls. I used a wobble for the heart just because I thought it would be cute instead of using pop dots. I then inked up the edges using Distress Ink in Fired Brick, put a little sheer ribbon on it and some bling. I am entering this card in My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge and Challenge #66 - Make a Valentine's Day Card over at Lollipop Crafts

Princess Valentines Card for my little princess

For this card I printed this digi (not sure from what company so if anyone knows please let me know so that I can give them props) and then colored it in using my Spectrum Noir markers. I used the Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set and die from My Creative Time. Simple Valentines card for my daughter because she is my little princess.


Valentines Challenge

I am really getting in to the Valentine spirit this year. I know this card isn't made with "traditional" colors but I am thinking I might give this to my hubby for Valentine's Day. I colored this image with my new favorite Spectrum Noir markers. I inked the edges using Distress Ink in faded jeans and spiced marmalade. I stamped the sentiment from My Creative Time More Gift Card Sentiments and then put is all together on a 5x5 kraft card from Papertrey Ink.

I am entering this card into the Valentines challenge over at Craft Room Challenge blog.
