Trick or Treat

Sep 30, 2010

I'm using this card for three challenges.

The first challenge is at Made by Momo. This weeks Tuesday challenge is to use Green, Yellow, and Orange and you have to do some kind of faux stitching or Doodling. I thought it would be alright to use some black since other people used another base color on their cards.

At Cricut Cardz Challenge, you have to make an S-Fold or Z-Fold card for Halloween, using any cartridges and any colors you'd like.

And finally, at My Pink Stamper, you have to make a project that is a Halloween or Fall theme.

The little monsters came from Mini Monsters and I used the pumpkin costume and bee costume from Paper Doll Dress Up. I went a little crazy on the buttons but I bought a ton of them and need to start using them :)   

3 Challenges...

Sep 28, 2010

Semi- Open
 Open all the way
 Closed card
I'm entering this project into 3 challenges. At Techniques by Trish, there is a creative scraps Sunday challenge. The challenge is to use Paper Doll Dress Up and ribbon. At 4 Crafty Chicks, the challenge is to complete a fall related project. And finally, at Fantabulous Cricut, they are celebrating national sewing month. The challenge is to create a project using some type of stitching, hand, machine or faux stitching. 

It's a Boy!

Sep 25, 2010

My good friend Maria (Nena) is having a baby boy. Her baby shower is tomorrow and I made this super cute diaper cake and baby wipe case for her. I was completely inspired by Erin Lee Creative. I used Simply Charmed on the cake and the "BABY" letters on the wipe case are from target $1.

I still need to sew her a matching nursing cover and make a card to pull it all together. So check back for that soon ;)

Over at Hear 2 Heart, the challenge is to follow this sketch.

 I also wanted to enter this card in a Peachy Keen Challenge... but I was to late. 
My baby girls didn't want to let me do to much crafting this week =[  

Chill Out!!!

This card is for My Pink Stamper's 5 Million Celebration. The challenge is to make a card with a bird in it. I recently got Simply Charmed in the mail and I've been itching to use it.

I'm thinking I need to give this card to one of my students who has had trouble managing his anger. He's gotten into several physical altercations with other students and as a result, he's probably thinking I don't like him. On the contrary, I'm just trying to get him to "Chill Out" and find other ways to deal with his anger. I think this card will send him the message that I still care about him as a student but he needs to... Chill Out!

Challenge Time

Sep 19, 2010

I'm using this card for two challenges. At Made By Momo, the Tuesday Challenge is a "just because" kind of card. So I made this cute little card that I will most likely give to one of my many awesome co-workers :) The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms. At Practical Scrapers, the challenge is to use Ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge

Sep 16, 2010

It's time for another Throwback Thursday Challenge! The theme is personal choice with an older cartridge.  I've been meaning to start my second daughter's scrapbook and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. If you lift the dress, you can see Leilani's ultrasound picture.

Wacky Wednesday Challenge #7

Sep 8, 2010

I'm entering in my first Wacky Wednesday Challenge. The challenge is to make anything inspired by a baby. So I made another baby wipe case. This one will be a baby shower gift for a co-worker. I'm thinking I'll make her a matching nursing cover to go with it. I found the letters at Target in the scrapbook area for 25 cents (so I bought a few). 

I made other baby wipe cases last month so click here for that link. 

labor Day Layout

Sep 7, 2010

Here's a quick little layout I made just before dinner for Erin's labor day layout challenge. I'm thinking it needs a little something... ribbon, buttons, bling, or something... but I just had to walk away from it for a bit. Have you ever had one of those days??? If you have any suggestions... I would love some input. Maybe I'll post a revised page tomorrow.  

Trying something new... my first mini-book

Sep 6, 2010

I'm having so much fun playing with my Gypsy this weekend. I decided to try a mini-book to go along with the shutter fold card I made yesterday (I got super inspired by Emma).  It was so much easier than I thought it would be. Now I really want a Bind-It-All so I can make some more books. 

I used Plantin Schoolbook, and Nana's Nursery - Baby Boy from DCWV

Trying something new... my first shutter fold card

Sep 5, 2010

My first attempt at a shutter fold card. 
There's a lot of cutting involved but I had fun. 

Supporting My Girl... and Challenge.

Sep 4, 2010

I wanted to make this card for one of my co-workers. She's been having a rough time and I wanted to give her some encouragement. I think she'll get a kick out of it (lord knows she needs a lil laugh). But I'm also using it for a challenge. So I hope I win ;)

I used Forever Young, swirls (cuttlebug), prima flowers, and of course... a white gel pen.
