Photo Corners

Photo Corners seem to be in all of our stashes, but I just cleaned out a lot of things and gave my photo corners to a friend/stamp collector. I did, however, have these stickers in my stash - and, as you can imagine, I had difficulty finding after "organizing" my stash yesterday!
This is just a quick card I made also using a sentiment I found in my stash and some leftover scraps from We Are 3's HoneyComb collection....made for a nice, quick card.

Bee Happy

Today's card is a multiple shaker card. The local papercrafting group I belong to has a "Mystery Item" swap each month. A member brings an item for each of us to use in making a card. This month's item was small plastic "globes," perhaps they originally encased some OTC medication. I used them to make a shaker card. I used We Are 3's Bumble Bee papers (and a touch of HoneyComb. Inside each of the shakers is a bee image from Miss Kate Cuttables, with some seed beads. I really love the look of the bee buzzing around the shakers.

Oddball Art Stamps and Paper Ala Mode Challenge

My current go-to gift is decorated gift bags. So for my design for the current challenge at Paper Ala Mode, I created a gift bag with a "beachy" theme. Maybe it was the Beach Boys on my mind, but when I saw Oddball's Hippie VW image, my mind immediately went to the beach. So when we got the At The Beach theme for this challenge, I was just dying to color up this hippie van.

Just look at this van!  Doesn't it scream beachy?  Perhaps it needs a surfboard - LOL!  The beachy papers are from one of my favorite paper collections - At The Beach from We Are 3.  Three designs are digitally collage together for a sandy bottom, blue water, and seagull sky.  The border is Teardrop Border from My Scrap Chick.

I Love Moo with Featured Stamper

This week at Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper, I'm loving Moo! Or should I say it's a card of kindness. I made this card using a pre-colored image from I Love Moo (Kadoodle Bug). I used a computer-generated sentiment. I embellished with a couple small flowers from my stash and gems.

Get Well Gift Bag

I couldn't resist making a Get Well gift bag for this week's Festive Friday Challenge at The Outlawz, as our gift bag swap at the local scrapbooking group, SALSA, is also themed Get Well. The two sentiments are from We Are 3 - Special Wishes and All Occasion collections.

The Outlawz Progressive Freebie meets Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper

Amazingly enough, I manage to combine two challenges into one card! I decided to use the Progressive Freebie from The Outlawz on a CASE of Featured Stamper #647 at Splitcoast. The image is by Little Blue Button - Coloring Sophia. I must say, I got pretty darn excited when I got to the page Sophia's is coloring - trying to decide how to make that an actual image to color, when I had this AHA moment. I copied what I had already colored of the freebie - resized it and rotated it - and pasted it on the desk! So this is sort of a self-portrait for Sophia! I just found a scallop shape, popped the image, and added a few sequins. I thoroughly enjoy these two challenges - great inspiration and fun!

A Quicky!

Ooh, seems like I just don't have time for crafting these days. Always working around doctors' appointments - and trying to give my hubby a little extra TLC since he's not able to plat with his hobbies these days. So I like it when I can manage to make a simple layout - and I mean this is simple - using a new release from We Are 3. Cute Snow Globes background paper, sentiment, and embellishment. Of course, I had to dip into my stash as well, and found some holly I cut for a project years ago. That's it!

Vintage Carnival

The patterned papers in this layout are from the Vintage Carnival Collection (We Are 3). The title is computer generated.
The design is inspired by the Sketch Challenge at Stick It Down.  This was loads of fun - such a great opportunity to use up scraps to make the radial design.  You must stop by Stick It Down to see the beautiful entries.  Then why not have a go at it yourself?  Stick It Down also has a wonderful two-page layout sketch.  There's still time to enter this month!

Merry Christmas!

Here it is - a favorite time of year - Christmas in July! What I have to share today is an ATC made for two challenges - Power Poppy's Christmas in July and an ATC challenge for Sizzix Eclips Users.
So I chose many images to color for Christmas in July. The fireplace background is from Merry Christmas Stamps (Emily Peterson) - size adjusted to 2.5 x 3.5 for the ATC. Then I colored up some rectangles to act as my "bricks." I adorned the fireplace mantel with Hollyberries (Power Poppy) and Vintage Stockings (Miss Kate Cuttables). The stocking was pre-colored - I added some shading. I finished off the ATC with Overstuffed Santa (Dan Moose). Then everything was Print 2 Cut with my Eclips. (#eclipsecalmaker)  I love the dimension of my ATC.

We Are 3's July Release - HoneyComb

For this card, I went again to the HoneyComb collection. The Retro Phone is form SVG Cuts, and the sentiment is computer generated.
