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’.

 

Riley & Company – CAS Summer

Hello! Welcome to another Riley & Company challenge.

Kendra’s our host of this weeks challenge and she’s kicking off the summer vacation months with a Clean and Simple (CAS) Summer challenge.

Here’s my card for this challenge. I love my BBQ Riley! And, I kept it clean and simple with a penned border and simple sentiment.

Want to play along with us? Then all you have to do is make a project with a Riley & Company image and then head over to the Riley & Company blog to link up your card/project so that we can see what you created. No blog? No problem! Just use the keyword RILEY1315 when uploading your card to a public gallery (such as Splitcoast Stampers).  We can’t wait to see what you create!

More Cards!

I think I’m gradually running out of post titles.

I’ve been trying to get my stash of birthday cards built up. Since I’m on the Birthday RAK Committee at SplitCoast Stampers and regularly send cards out, I need some on hand. Plus, I like them light and “lean” for cheap shipping. ;)

This style was a Pinterest find and I have done it before. It’s nice and easy and uses a variety of my favorite scraps, so it works. Here are the latest three:

And, another birthday card. I have a stack of embossed backgrounds that also needs to be used up. I wasn’t sure to do with this word background, so took to the internet once again for a few ideas and came up with this.

And, this card was supposed to turn out differently, but…creativity happens and here’s what I made! I always forget about this stamp and it’s one of my favorite “belated” birthday ones.

And, finally, here’s a “just because” card that I made…just because!

 

Crafty Friday

I was lucky enough to have an evening free to create this week. The kids have had a wonky sleep schedule due to illness, so when they both went down fairly early Friday night…time to craft!

I’m still working on getting rid of some of the scraps that I have in my room. I fall in love with patterns and just can’t get rid of even the smallest bit. Then, I go to make a card and it never gets used because it’s not big enough.

So, I’ve been working backwards. Instead of identify card idea…find appropriate scraps, I’m going with identify scrap…find appropriate card idea. Slowly I think I’m making progress.

This boot border paper has been in my stash for awhile. It was the backside to a purple piece I bought for…something. Anyway, usually I don’t use these kinds of pieces, but as I was preparing to throw it out, I remembered about my new Unity stamp that it was perfect for. I think I already know where this card is headed too.

This card is headed over to the Use Your Stash challenge at Creative Knockouts.

This card was also created from the scrap pile. I think the layout idea came from Pinterest. And, since Father’s Day is just around the corner, this one is good for a few challenges, such as the one at Crazy 4 Challenges, Little Claire’s Designs and Krafty Hands (I have to say, Krafty Hands had some really nice DT projects!).

And, last card for this post, this also was created mostly from the scrap pile. At the last minute, I even remembered those patterned brads I had and included it on the card. This one is being entered over at A Gem of a Challenge (use blue), Hiding in my Craft Room (super scraps saturday) and Scrappers Delights (anything goes).

Birthday Card

Here’s another card from my scrap clean out. The pile is slowly disappearing. Which is good, because there are plenty of other papers in my craft room ready for their turn!

Unidentified Image Swap – Jun 2015

Another two months pass and we’re here again with another post for my Unidentified Image Swap. This rounds host is the lovely Jody.

I’ll be honest, I lost the note that indicated the name of this image. So, I can’t tell you. But, it IS cute!

Looking forward to the next set of images!

Riley & Company – Kraft Color

Welcome back to the Riley & Company Challenge.

Joy’s got a color theme for us this week! Use Kraft colored paper in your project.

I love Kraft, so this is an exciting challenge for me. I ended up with this quick and simple card. Love this embossing folder and that brad! Ah! But most of all, I love the You are Fabulous sentiment. I can’t send this to myself, so will have to find someone equally as fabulous to send it to…I might have just the person in mind!
