Wrapped With Love

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around blog land and I am way behind as always:)  Today I have a special preview for you from Claudia & Company .  I used this super versatile digi set by Maree Truelove called Wreath Set and it will be available on November 5th at Die Cuts R Us.

 I made my Gable Box using THIS  tutorial on SCS, it was super easy and it ended up being much larger than I thought it would be.  This Mini Wreath Set  comes with the wreath and two holly options.  I printed the wreath twice and did some paper piecing .  I LOVE this paper from The Girls' Paperie called Tinsel & Twigs and you can find it right HERE in a 6x6 sampler pack(love these).  The pine branch punch is from Martha Stewart , I added a little Diamond Stickles to the branches  and tag along with glossy accents to my berries.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs -Amy R  Stamps Autumn Sentiments.  My son has already claimed this box for his teacher so it looks like I will be making a few more:)

-Join us for the Claudia & Company Winter Blog Hop On November 5th for a chance to win some great prizes from Claudia's sister company Die Cuts R Us, more details to come very soon.

- Hop on over to the Claudia and Company Blog  to see what my super talented team mates have to show you today.
Have a fantabulous weekend and have fun taking those little ones Trick or Treating.  I am hoping I have sometime to craft this weekend, fingers crossed.

Honey for a Cure

This Honey is actually called Honey Cheerleader by C.C. Designs but for my card I wanted her to cheer for a Cure.  First things first,  today is the release of 3 new Honeys over at All That Scraps, these are just too cute not to get them all. 
 I dedicate this card to all of the breast cancer survivors including my mom who had a double Mastectomy when she was only 42 years old.  Praise to God and good doctors because of early detection she has been cancer free for over 13 years now.  I just heard a ridiculous news report the other day that they are recommending women wait until they are 50 to get mammograms instead of 40, insane!!  Please DO NOT WAIT early detection saves lives.  Due to my mom's history, last year at age 35 my doctor is now having me get my yearly mammogram to be safe.  Please take care of the Ta- Tas!!

Now on to my card I kept the lay out simple making this super cute cheerleader and the ribbon the main focus.  The paper is by Moxxie Fighting Back.  I added some Diamond Stickles to her pompoms and the sentiment was inspired by a tee shirt I saw and she was colored with Copics.
 I am going to enter her in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge # 52 Pink
Have a wonderful weekend!!

A Day for Honey

This is my second post today, I know shocking.  Today I have 2 cards to share with you using the the brand new Honey Digis by C. C. Designs available tomorrow at All That Scraps.  Christine has created 3 adorable images Skier Honey,  Angel Honey and Cheerleader Honey.

For this first card I made a double pocket card and used Skier Honey.  I love the colors in this paper from Bo Bunny called Winter Joy.  The sentiment is from Paper Pretties Snowflake Kisses and the punch is from EK Success.  I used Polar White Flower Soft  for the ground and a few soft flakes on  Honey's face.
For my next card I used Angel Honey and just kept it pretty simple with the lay out, I thought with this paper (Maya Patchwork) it didn't need much .  I would like to note that the ribbon  matches much better in real life:)

That is is it for today, I need a nap ( I wish) too many late nights.  Please go visit the ATS Blog and see the Digi Teams wonderful creations and don't forget to stop back tomorrow for a special post and release day.

Tea Party

Hi everyone, so sorry I disappeared this week.  I haven't been slacking I promise. Here is the first of four projects I have to show you and I apologize for the photography,  I just took the picture and the moon just wasn't bright enough to show the true colors.

Thursdays are Digi Creation Day at Claudia and Company so today I wanted to share with you a set called Claudia & Company Tea Party Set that was just released as a digi at Die Cuts R Us.  This is such a cute set that can be used so many ways and with the digi you can size it to fit your needs like I did.

Just a few details to share since I am about to fall asleep and probably won't make any sense once I read this in the morning.  The paper is My Minds Eye Quite Contrary/Little Miss Muffet Collection.  One of the greatest things in my opinion is buying the 6x6 Paper Samplers that Claudia offers HERE.  I just got my second big order and it gives you so many options for paper and you can't beat the prices.  I used an old layout from Taylored Expressions she has wonderful sketches BTW.

Please stop back by later today because I have another preview to show you.  Have a blessed day!!

Lost In Wonderland

I have a new Digi  image to share with you today by Chubby Pencil this cute Little Bunny is from C.C. Designs and you can get it HERE at All That Scraps tomorrow October 15th.  I haven't had the chance to work with animals lately so I had so much fun with this one.  Alice in Wonderland has been very popular around my house lately so I decided to take my card in the darker movie direction.
Please don't adjust your eyes, everything is turned to represent falling down the rabbit hole:) 

The papers are from My Minds Eye Breaking Free Collection and I used an old Close To My Heart set called Make It Count to stamp the numbers and create the clock.  Everything was distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Inks and the rabbit was colored with Copics.

 The talented ATS Digi Team has some GREAT projects to share with you on the All That Scrap Blog so please stop by and take a look..  Enjoy the rest of your day.

Bubbles and Bling

Update- My card made the Top Three at My Partner in Crafting Crime, yippee!!

I hope everyone is having a good day.  I have a card to share with you today that I made just because.  I have so many stamps that I just don't seem to have time to use, so one way or another I am going to let them see some ink.

Today I used Magnolia's Bubbling Tilda along with the sentiment from Paper Makeup which worked out perfectly. The sketch is from this Month's CLP #30 Challenge however, I did flip my sentiment and bling to opposite sides.  I am also entering it in a few other challenges listed below.  I love the flower brad that I found from Spare Parts, I was so excited to be able to use it.
CLP #30- Sketch
Color Me Copic- Coloring Clothes
Flutter By Wednesday #125- Anything Goes with Wings that is.
My Partner in Crafting Crime#13-Sparkle & Shine

 I am sorry this is so short but I have a deadline tomorrow so I have to get back to crafting.  Thank you to all of those who follow me and leave such nice comments and thanks to everyone for stopping by to visit.

Honey the Witch

We made it to another Friday, yippee!!  It was another crazy week as you can see from my lack of commenting and posting and for that I am sorry. No big plans this weekend or at least I hope not, we could use a calm one for a change.  I really want to go see that movie "Life As We Know It" hopefully before it goes to DVD.

I have a really cute Digi  to show you from C.C. Designs available now at All That Scraps .  This is Honey the Witch created by Christine Wooden, isn't she adorable?  I just love the little kitty hiding behind her and the spider dangling from her hat. 

My little treat box is decorated with Basic Grey's Eerie papers and SU card stock. Behind Honey I used the Halloween Scene (rubber) but it is also available as a digi. Once again I was able to use Autumn Sentiments from Amy R. Stamps.  The edges got a coat of orange Stickles and the fun ribbon is from the Recollections.

 Don't forget to stop by the ATS Blog to get some more great ideas from the Digi Team. There is only about a week or so left to get your Christmas Sugarplums kit and you can find it here.  One thing I have always loved about ATS aside from the great stamps is their wonderful shipping rates, they are the best so I never hesitate to order.  That is enough chatter from me, get out and enjoy your weekend:)

Hannah In The Patch

It is Thursday which means it is Digi Creation Day at Claudia& Company so be sure to stop by and take a look at all of the wonderful creations from the rest of the talented design team. Today I used Claudia & Company Lollipop Hannah Digi by Lori Boyd  along with the new Pumpkin Patch Digi by Jane's Doodles.

I decided these cute pumpkins would work perfectly as a Step Fold Card to create a Pumpkin Patch for Hannah to pick her perfect pumpkin.  We always look forward to going to the pumpkin patch every year and getting pictures of the kids where they refuse to smile or look in the same direction, hehe.   I will so miss it when they grow up and don't want to go anymore so for now I have to treasure those little moments.
The sentiment is from C.C. Designs Autumn Sentiments; this is a really great sentiment set to have BTW.  I had fun making this little card and I hope you enjoyed taking a peek. Sorry about the horrible picture I could not get good lighting no matter what I tried.   I will see you again tomorrow with a new Halloween project.

Pink Party Princess

Hello my blogging friends.  I am finally back with a short post and there will be more this week since I have some deadlines coming up.  I miss crafting but there just isn't enough time or hands to do it as often as I would like, not to mention I am the slowest card maker ever.

We had another birthday party this weekend so I had to whip up a girly card this time.  I so goofed up and forgot to add one of my boarder layer pieces before I glued it down...uugh.  I used the Lillian's Sketch  Challenge #44 at The Sugar Bowl for the most part, I couldn't fit my image into an oval so I improvised.    I used Gorjuss Party Princess these are so cute and fun to color she reminds me so much of my Riley.

Stamp- Sugar Nellies Gorjuss Party Princess
Paper- SU Raspberry Tart
Accessories- Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Copics, Spellbinders Blossom, Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, SU Scallop Edge Punch
Don't forget to stop by Claudia & Company and pick up the adorable new October Releases and then head over to ALL That Scraps and get your Sugarplums Christmas Kit available until the 15th of this month.  My husband is so going to be broke with all of the cute releases:)
