Craft Time Challenges with Rick St. Dennis

The first of the month means it’s time for a new challenge to begin over at Crafty Time challenges. Our challenges last all month, so you have at least 28 days to show us your fabulous work.

Our wonderfully creative theme this month is:It’s easy! All you have to do is take inspiration from a movie a book or a song with your project. Tell us what you picked so that we can ooh and ahh over your great interpretation.

The wonderfully talented Rick St. Dennis is our image sponsor this month. He has such an amazing variety of images in his store, you need to check it out. His digital stamp images can be found on Zibbet or Etsy.

The image I used is called 20 winks and is available in the Rick St. Dennis Zibbet shop. My daughter, Claire, is big into fairies right now. Books and movies featuring Tinkerbell and the rest of the fairies from Pixie Hollow are read and re-read. I selected this image thinking of her, but then also found this quote that reminded me of Claire. Books, movies and song feed her imagination. I love this age and the creativity that she shares with us.

This project is being entered in a couple of challenges as well:

New Creations

I’m still busy trying to work through some of my scraps. Some days I can’t wait to move onto other things, other days I like the fact that maybe (finally) I’m making a dent in some of the things that are slowing me down. Here are a couple of birthday cards and a “just for you” card that I made while cleaning up some of the odds and ends. I just love this Lotus Blossom set from SU. It’s so much fun to create with!

Mystery Image Swap – Jul 2015

Here we go again. Another month passes. Can you believe we’re half way through 2015 already?? Unbelievable.

Tracie is the one celebrating the halfway mark with her image. She actually sent a collection of images from a set from Two Paper Divas called “On the Road Again”. I admit, this presented a challenge for me at first. A collection of images placed just right so they belong? Oh, help me.

Halfway through the card, I looked at my work and thought “this is NOT going to turn out”.

Then, I FINISHED the card and thought…hmmm, NOT BAD! I decided to use my Silhouette for the sentiment. I had a bit of problem getting the curly image to cute just right in the size I chose, but I don’t think it’s that bad.

Thanks for the fun image, Tracie!

Riley & Company – Sun, Fun & the Beach

Feel the breeze, the sand, the beautiful water! This week at Riley & Company we’re going to the beach with Jackie’s Beach or Fun in the Sun themed project!

I love how this one turned out! Isn’t that sunburst background terrific? And, I’ve used my very versatile Hammock Riley with the “It’s All Good” sentiment.

Crafty Time with Sherri Baldy

Hello everyone! Crafty Time challenges is back for another month of fun! Our monthly challenges run on the 1st of every month, so there’s plenty of time for you to play with us.

This month, our challenge is to use:Go to town with lots of punch outs or die cuts, electronic cuts are allowed. Or, create something using just one punch out or one die. The choice is yours!!

This month, the Design Team is once again working with the lovely images of Sherri Baldy Designs.

My creation for you this month is using an image from Sherri Baldy called “Your Guardian Angel”. I had fun coloring this little lady and even more fun decorating her with my punches and dies! I used my Spellbinders for the lacy circle and deckled rectangle background. I also pulled out a few of my label punches and used my brand new embossed hearts die too.

Head on over to the Craft Time Challenges blog to link up your creation. While you’re there, take a hop through the Design Team members blogs and leave them a bit of lovin’.
