I got a Cricut for my birthday, and I am having so much fun learning how to use it! Check out this cute pillow box I made using a digital kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I love how the layered paper flower turned out. I found some tutorials on YouTube that show how to make all kinds of paper flowers with a personal die cut machine. I can't wait to try out more of them!

That's it for now, have a great week!

April Showers

I have a fun little card to share today. I used the latest image from Faith Skrdla called "April Showers", available at Designed2Delight digital stamps. I love this cute image! I tried something different with this card... I colored the image digitally in PSE (Photoshop Elements). That is AKA "the lazy crafter's coloring method"... hehe

The papers are from a grab bag by Plum Dumpling Designs that will be released tomorrow at ScrapMatters, and the sentiment is from Krisi's Kreations. It is also being released tomorrow at SM.


I am heading off to a field trip to see the movie "Oceans" with my twins and their 4th grade classes. They both made the honor roll, and their school does an honor roll field trip every quarter. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by... have a great day!

Beary cute card...

I just finished up another card for the latest challenge on the Designed2Delight blog. This image is called "Bunches", and it is available at Designed2Delight digital stamps. The papers are from a digital kit called Sunday Afternoon by Trixie Scraps and Sarah Bennett.

I had to laugh when I came upstairs with this card to photograph it. I was in a hurry to finish it up before the deadline, and I colored it downstairs where the lighting is not very good. I thought I could see okay at the time, but when I saw my card in good light, I realized the bear looks pretty bad! lol Oh well, if you squint he looks okay. I will have to try to do a touch up later...


Thanks for checking out my card.... have a great day!

Spring Peep

Hey there! Just stopping by to share my latest creation...

I really LOVE this adorable image by Faith Skrdla called "Spring Peep"! You can find this image and more at Designed2Delight digital stamps. I colored the image with a blender pen and the following Stampin' Up ink colors: So Saffron, Old Olive, Pink Passion, Soft Sky and Bashful Blue.

I also used the following digital supplies... Sunshine and Daffodils (elements), Sunshine and Daffodils (papers), Watercolor Papers and Snipettes: Springtime, all by Sahlin Studio. If you are into digital scrapbooking or hybrid papercrafting, you have got to check out Krista's store. She has so many gorgeous digital goodies!


Only a few more days left of Spring Break. The kids have enjoyed their time off school, but we sure have had some strange weather in the past week! Last Thursday and Friday, the temp got up into the 80's... highly unusual for Michigan in April. Then on Tuesday morning we had pouring rain and a thunderstorm with marble sized hail! There was flooding all over the place. Now today as I sit here and type this post, it has started snowing twice... but it only lasted a minute or two each time. Talk about strange! But that's Michigan for ya!

Have a great day!

Spring Break is here...

Just a quick post today.... my kids are all home for Spring Break this week, so it is very busy around here! I managed to get this card done for the latest challenge at Designed2Delight. This image by Faith Skrdla is called Light of Life, and you can find it at Designed2Delight digital stamps.

I colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils and sponged in the sky with Soft Sky ink. Unfortunately, the colors look a bit washed out in the photo.

The digital papers I used are all from the Enchanted Sea kit by A+ Designs and Pixie Perfect Designs.



It is fairly simple, but I think it makes a nice masculine birthday card. So that's all for now... hope you have a great week!

I love digital stamps!

It has been a couple of years now since I switched my focus from stamping to digital scrapbooking. My stamps have been sitting neglected for quite some time and I have even sold many of my sets. But I still enjoy making cards with my digital supplies, and digital stamps are a great new addition to my stash.

Here is the most recent card I made. I love how this turned out! The image (called Garden Fairy) is by Faith Skrdla from Designed2Delight digital stamps. She has tons of adorable images available in her shop... I was so excited to discover them recently!

I also used papers and elements from the Sisterly Love digital kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow and Meghan Mullens.



What do you think... isn't it sweet? Thanks for stopping by, and have a fantastic day!

Sweet baby buggy...

Hey there, crafters! I finished up a fun project today for a baby shower I will be attending this weekend... It turned out so cute, if I do say so myself! :) I made it with the Bouncing Baby Buggy template by Lauren Meader from My Time Made Easy. The template was so easy to use, and I love the results!

Another reason I love this template is because of it's versatility. You aren't limited to just a baby buggy. I have seen several different projects made using this same template... a boat, an easter basket, and a wheelbarrow. How cool is that!? I know I will get a ton of use from this template!

I used digital papers from Kristin Cronin-Barrows' Goody Two Shoes kit to decorate the buggy. I love the soft colors in this kit, so I knew it would be just right for my girly baby buggy.

*
For the finishing touches, I added satin ribbon around the middle of the buggy, white buttons on the wheels, and finally ric rac, brads, a paper flower and dew drop center to the buggy shade.

Here is a better view of the pretty little bow on the back...



Now I just have to find the perfect little gift to tuck inside and I will be ready for the baby shower. I think this will make the mom-to-be smile!

Thanks for stopping by my blog... have a great week!
