DCWV Memory Tray

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!!

I bought this memory tray frame a few months and finally got around to using it!  I loved the colors in the DCWV's Honey Chic Stack paper pad and knew right away what picture I wanted to use! Earlier this year my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary. To make the day more special, we decided to renew our wedding vows with our kids in attendance. It was truly a wonderful day and deserved a wonderful crafting project!


I love how simple this frames can be to complete! Having a paper pad makes it so easy to pair up prints and patterns!  The photo layout is create with two prints/patterns under the photo. Then I fussy-cut the floral design from another print in the same paper pad. The floral cutout is placed over the corner of the photo. The reminder parts of the frame are just as easy! The paper flowers are created using a circle punch. Foam letter stickers make an easy title/sentiment of the layout.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope to see you back again!

Oh, the places you'll go Layout- DCWV

Happy Friday, all!  I know I have been slow with my postings for a few weeks, but I am back! Don't worry, I have been crafting! I just have been focusing on creating projects for contest, publications, etc! So I cannot share those projects yet!

But I have one to show you today!

How about a layout! That might be a nice change!

Here is my layout using papers from the DCWV Baby Boy Stack paper pad:


The layout started with a patterned paper with the hot air balloons. As you probably know, paper pads provide multiple pages of the same design. So I took the matching paper and cut out some of the hot air balloons and attached them with pop dots to add dimension to the layout. I Also, added a couple extra cloud die cuts to the scene. The rest of the layout is pretty simple (my kind of style)! The layout title is created with two colors of alpha letter stickers.

Thank you for stopping by! Please come back soon to see more creations!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Lawn Fawn Cuteness

Today, I am sharing a fun project using some fun Lawn Fawn cuteness! When I first saw the Milk and Cookies stamp set, I knew it was a MUST-HAVE! But in all honesty, what Lawn Fawn isn't a MUST-HAVE?
 
 
The milk and cookie jar image are just shouting to be colored. So I broke out the colored pencils and began the process!  The plate, cookies, and milk glass were stamped on cardstock or paper and cut out. I wanted to make it look like the items were placed on a table, so the kraft cardstock is embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder. The sentiment is added to a speech bubble, created by the Lawn Fawn Speech Bubble Border die.

Hello Fall with Paper Smooches!

I am so ready for FALL! So tired of the hot and muggy weather! Luckily, our first "cold front" is suppose to arrive overnight and our highs tomorrow will be in the 80's... I guess that will have to due for now!
 
So to get in the fall mood, I am bringing out the fall wreath and crafting with some fall stamps!


 
When I saw the sketch for the current Paper Smooches' SPARKS Designer Draft Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! Here is the sketch:
 


And here is my take of the sketch:

 
This card was so easy to create! If you have the patience to color. Which can be a challenge for me, but I managed:)
 
I grabbed two of the leaves images from the Paper Smooches' Gently Seasoned stamp set. Once the ink was dry, then the coloring began! To finish the leaves banners, I attached the twine (Trendy Twine's Orange Truffle). The last step was to create the simple sentiment. The sentiment was made using a stamp (also from the Gently Seasoned set) and some tiny alpha letter stickers.
 
I am entering this card in the Paper Smooches' SPARKS Designer Draft Challenge, as well as their Guest Designer search.
 
 
Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy National Coffee Day!!

Let me start with...

I am not a coffee lover...I know, I know! How can that be?!?!

However, I love the smell of it and it makes for some perfect gifts! So why not make some coffee related crafts!

Today, I am playing along with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Check out the details, HERE!
 
CoffeeLoversBloghopBadge

Here is my creation:


I used Sweet Stamp Shop's Coffee Town stamp set (along with their Around Town stamp set). To create the cup tower, I stamped the first image and then taped the bottom cup/saucer and inked the remaining image. I repeated that step a few times. The last cup was cut out and tipped over to look like a spill.

What to get more coffee inspiration? Check out the blog hop HERE to see some amazing projects!



 Thank you Chaitali and Amy for putting together a GREAT blog hop!

Thank You Butterfly Reflections, Ink!

Today is my last post for the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Design Team! Where has the time gone! Boy, did that go by fast!
 
One of my favorite things from the BRI shop has to be the awesome exclusive stamps that were released! They are still available, HERE!
 
Here is the card I created using the Over the Rainbow set:
 
 
To create the rainbow, I stamped the words in black. Then I stamped the remainder of the rainbow in a variety of colors. To create this look, I taped the sections of the image I did not want to color. Once the ink is applied, I would recover the tape and stamp the image.  To add some texture to the card, I added a couple cloud diecuts.
