Christmas in July

Today I continue to work on holiday projects for Anna Griffin's next appearance on HSN for September 9th. I look forward to sharing a bunch of those cards and scrapbook pages with you soon. Until then, I made this Anna Griffin Christmas card for you. 

Yes, I used another of the Angelic Card Topper as a focal point for this design. They're just so pretty and they capture the spirit and magic of Christmas.

The Scoop

Today I'd like to share a fun summery note card I made with Scraptastic Club's July 2015 kit called Summer Rolls. Ooh la la just look at those glittery ice cream treats included in the kit, part of the Poolside collection made by Crate Paper. 

I think the receipt accent is so clever! I love it! And those prices! Reminds me of when I was a kid and you could get three scoops of ice cream for just .35 cents at Thrify drug store! Those were the days! I even remember the flavors I always sherbet, coffee almond fudge and mint chip. What a combo! I remember the person who scooped my ice cream saying once, "If that flavor combination doesn't make you sick....!" Ha! Good memories!

Christmas - Anna Griffin Style

Hello! I've been a busy little crafter bee creating lots of projects for Anna Griffin's next appearance on HSN coming up on September 9th.

There will be spooky fun Halloween products for sale along with Christmas goodies. 

Yesterday I was working on some Christmas  projects so I thought I'd make a quick holiday card to share with you today using some of my favorite Anna Griffin supplies. 

I love her glitter paper because I can add sparkle to my projects without wearing it on my face all day! 

That little angel is one of my favorite products from last year, the Angelic Card Toppers. 

Can you believe fall and the holidays are right around the corner? I keep trying to ignore that fact. I'm a warm weather kind of gal and I've been enjoying summer so much. Ahhhh long days and watermelon! Heck, we haven't even gone on our annual family beach trip yet! Coming up!

Doughnut Cards

I love the Fun Stamper's Journey Yummy & Delicious line! All those ice creams, cupcakes and candies drive my sweet tooth wild! Would you like to add a few delicious doughnuts to the mix? 

Think of all the flavors you can make! And you can top them with sprinkles, coat them with sugar or smear them with chocolate! 

To make doughnut shaped cards you'll need the Journey Circles die set and some Oatmeal Cookie card stock.

Cut your card stock to 8" by 4" and fold in half. Then with some re-positional tape, arrange the largest and smallest Journey Circles dies to your card stock with the largest die overlapping the top in order to keep it from cutting the entire circumference .

Now cut a 4" by 4" square with the card stock you plan to use as your frosting and cut the same way you did with your doughnut base. With a pair of scissors cut a wavy outline along the outer edge. 

Inside the my doughnut cards I stamped a sentiment using the Hello Scoop stamp set. 

Yum! Doughnuts! Calorie free too!

I just had an could use Journey Glaze to add a realistic sheen to your chocolate frosting. Oh just image the many kinds of doughnuts you can make and all you can do with them! How about a doughnut garland!

Have fun!

Tequila Anyone?

For a long while, maybe even as long as it has been since Reverse Confetti released the Fresh and Fruity stamp and Confetti Cuts set last July, I've had this project idea. 

Wouldn't these make fun party favors?

Maybe a friend is going through a rough patch and you want to cheer them up? Or get them drunk? You'll probably need a bigger bottle. Ha!

Too fun, don't you think? 

See my card stock lime? I thought I'd try a Copic technique I've seen around...adding a little texture to the lime with some shadowing and dots. I need a little practice, but I like it! 

Have a great weekend!

Playing with Scraps

I'm starting another day pawing through my scraps bin to see what I can create with my leftover bits and pieces. Today it's this triangle patterned paper and sticker accents from Pebbles's Walnut Grove collection. Remember that one? An oldie, but a goody! I love those bright happy colors! 

Do you have a scrap paper bin? How about grabbing a piece of pretty paper and let it take you on a crafty adventure? Have fun!

Let's Craft!

I started the day rummaging through my scrap paper bin searching for some patterned paper to inspire a little craft session. Turns out this star paper is a Chickaniddy design that was part of a Scraptastic Club kit from a few months back.  

Then I found the pink heart print paper that's an old patterned from Pebbles' Yours Truly collection. I love the way it looks with the star paper. 

The die cut card stock stars and the cork stars are also left over accents from previous Scraptastic Club kits. And that beautiful butterfly is made by Pink Paisley, part of their Bella Rouge collection and once included in another Scraptastic Club kit. 

Then there's that darling little star charm...something I've had in my stash for years. 

Together these papers and accents came together beautifully, I think. It's an all occasion card that can be used for birthday, thinking of you or just a note. 

What a fun, relaxing way to start the day! Now I'm ready to take on some assignments. I'll be working on some more Anna Griffin HSN projects that will air on the next 24 Hour Craft event on September 9th.

Gift Giving

Hello! I have a gift giving project to share with you today using one of Fun Stampers Journey's brand new Treat Boxes. I love these little Kraft boxes with the column texture and easy assembly! They're the perfect size for a stack of cookies or candies and also great for gift cards! 

For my Treat Box I used the Animal Crackers stamp set to make this a baby girl themed gift. Inside I  would roll up a cute little onesie with a gift certificate! 

I used the Star-dom and Journey Circle die cut sets to make this sweet little layered tag for my box. 

For the bow I used two colors of satin ribbon and because I like to reuse packaging as much as possible and encourage the reuse of this box, I wrapped the bow around the lid only. That way the recipient can easily open the box without having to undo it. 

If you want to use the box for something other than a baby gift, you simply untie the twine bow to take the tag off...the ribbon will remain intact. 

And there you go...just one of many ways you can dress up these Fun Stampers Journey Treat Boxes.

Rain or Shine

Today I have a card to share with you that I made this weekend. This cloud printed paper from my stash bin caught my eye. I love the white on craft with pastels mixed in. Such a fresh look and those printed clouds reminded me of Reverse Confetti's new Weather it Together stamps and Confetti Cuts and I knew they would work perfectly together. 

How many of you think of many ways you would change your project once you're done with it? I always do! I sit back and look at my work and think of all kinds of things I could have added or done differently. If time and supplies weren't limited, I could make five versions of every card I make. This time I thought I could have added some of the heart shaped rain drops that were included in the stamps set and I thought the clouds and sun would have been even more darling had I stamped them first with white embossing powder. I never run out of ideas...a good thing in this business!
