Cardz TV Crazy Crafters - Anything Goes #2

Thanks for stopping by to check out another creation I've made for the Cardz TV Crazy Crafters challenge. I usually make cards or scrapbook layouts so I thought for this challenge I'd make a tag!

For this challenge I used the Encouraging Thoughts stamp set. All of these sentiments are so perfect for just that....encoraging someone. Have fun with them! Here's the link that will get you to Mary's stamps:

Here's how I made this:
Paper: Watercolor
Embossing Folder: Paper Studio
Flowers: Prima
Tags: Tim Holtz
Distress Inks

Cardz TV Crazy Crafters - Anything Goes

Create. Inspire. Enjoy.

So happy to be back on the Cardz TV design team! You've GOT to go check out all the stamp sets. They are all so cute. Good luck trying to decided or maybe just get them all.

Here's the first challenge: "Anything Goes." I've made a Mother's Day card using both the Pretty Posey's and "Happy Days" Stamp Sets. The Mother's Day stamp set was used on the inside which I neglected to take a picture of before I mailed it out.

For this card:
Card Base: 65 lb weight white card stock
Yellow Layer: Lawn Fawn 
Cloud Layer: American Crafts #Summertime
Glitter: JoAnns
Copic markers for coloring the flowers
Black Nuvo for the middle of the flowers

Here's a process video on it. Please don't forget to subscribe to my youtube channel for more inspiration!

Have a fantastic Day!

April 2017 Calendar for Grandma

Wow! It's April already. Spring is definitely here in California. Cool mornings and evenings but sunny and warm during the day.

Here's my grandma's April calendar for her to hang on your closet at the skilled nursing home. I way far behind on this one. I'll be visiting her on the 13th so I'm sure she'll let me know about how she feels getting it late...she's so funny. Well, to make up for it I'm going to make her May calendar early and give it to her with this one.

 Here's what I used to make it:
Base: American Crafts "Pastels"
April and Numbers: Designer's Calendar
Umbrella: CTMH - Artbooking
Rain drops: CDS Free
Ducks: Silhouette Studio from Studioilustrado
Clouds: First Few Years

Here's how I made it:

Box Card - Lindsey's birthday

The first time I saw the box cards come out, at the time they were just available on the Silhouette, I thought I was just going to die from the cuteness.

Cheers to Lindsey and I hope you had a wonderful time on your special day. Hugs from California to Australia! I wish I could be there to have cake with you because I know for sure Greg's making a beautiful one.

This card is from the All Occasion Box card cartridge (CDS). I used Nuvo on the little flags. On the back of the tall layer is where I write my sentiment.

Create. Inspire. Enjoy.

Scrapbook Layout Share - 2016 Graduation

Hello crafty friends!

I haven't been doing any cards or layouts for a while. I just finished this one and wanted to share.
This is my baby's, Jordan, high school graduation layout. I took so many pictures but decided all
of them wouldn't fit. I'm sure you've experienced that

Thanks for watching.

Cricut Design Space Project - Pop Up Birthday card

Happy Birthday to my long time friend, Tanya. I've made her a pop up card that I found in the Cricut Design Space. The cartridge is Close To My Heart - Artfully Sent.

The paper is Stampin' Up but I'm not sure what paper pack it came from. To watch how I made it click on the video below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Layout Share - BBQ

We had so much fun at our very first BBQ in our new home. We did a combo of Labor day celebration and my friend's birthday.

The paper was perfect for this event. The manufacturer is Best Creations Inc. Cute, right?
I used my ribbon punch to put ribbon on the pictures and did a simple rectangle journal tag
right below. "Get Cooking" is from Cricut Design Space - Country life. I found some orange
glitter paper and used it for this title. Buttons seemed to look cute and to bring out more of the yellow from the pictures at the bottom of the page.

I used part of a cardboard box, the variegated part, and used that for the photo mats. The food and BBQ title came from Cricut Design Space - Block Party. The journal tag was from a Recollections sticker set I'd bought around the holidays. The circles were backed up by an old piece of cork that was in my scraps. I felt like there needed to be something above the cut lines of the middle piece of paper so I added brown ric rac. 

Here's how I put it all together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
