Clearly the Best: The Magic of Monograms (S01E09)

It's time to be Flirty...Blog Hop


If you came from Traci Williams at Paper Crafting 101, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

This month we used the Flirty paper pack. This is one of my favorites. I love paper that uses flowers as well as the stamp set that matches. The stamp set I used is Love Blooms and our alcohol marker set to color in the roses. I used 3 different marker sets for the roses which are Twilight, Hollyhock and Smokey Plum. The edge of the roses are Smokey Plum as well. I layered the 3 white circles then stamped and colored the roses. After that I put orange circles between the white paper and it gave it a nice layered look. If your interested in what I used take a look at the Flirty Workshop on the go and make yours too. I hope you like this design and it inspires you to make something similar to this. 

The next blog on the list is Cydney Fowler at Cydney Fowler Creations. Hope you have a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using Flirty paper pack. If you get lost, just hop on over to Damask Divas blog for the full list.

Studio J Layouts I made







Mojo Monday #265


Hello my friends...We survived Hurricane Sandy.  I thought it was going to be a lot worse then what it was but we were still prepared.  I was excited about making this card today.  I looked at the layout and I really wanted to do something different with the shape.  I am in need of masculine cards so I thought this would be perfect.  I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to make the shirt and tie for the card.  If you look in the manual it's on page 75.  I cut it out at 4.5" since the card is roughly 6x6.  I hope that this inspires you to make a craft of some kind like this and I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a message.  Be sure to stop by Mojo Monday and check out all the other entries.....Until next time

Candy filled coffins


I had fun making these today.  I made about 25 candy filled coffins for the trunk or treaters at my church.  I hope they like them cause it took me quite some time.  I used the coffin design from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  It's on page 76 3D object and I cut it at 4 inches.  I hope this inspires you to make something for your trick or treaters...until next time my friends

Mojo Monday #264

Hello my friends...Here is my Mojo Monday card for this week.  I had a fun time making this card.  I used the La Belle Vie workshop on the go kit.  This kit has beautiful paper and comes with a fun stamp set.  The stamp set goes great with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  All the measurements are on the stamp holder so you can cut the paper on the Cricut and stamp it perfectly onto the paper. I used liquid glass on the image as well to give it some different texture.  I hope that this inspires you to make a card today.  Be sure to stop by Mojo Monday and see the different enteries.  Until next time......

Fun card using Avonlea

Hello my friends.  I had a rough day so I am glad that I got to get to at least make one card today.  I made this card with the Avonlea paper pack which is simply beautiful. The card is a 6x5 and I also used the paper crimper which I haven't used in awhile.  Also remember that the stamp of the month is only available until the 31st.  Be sure to get your before the end of the month.  Keeping it short tonight because my bed is calling....actually screaming for me...Until next time.....

Mojo Monday #263

Hello my friends.  Hope your all having a good day.  The paper pack that I used for Mojo Monday is Dakota    .  At first I thought that I wasn't such a fan of it but as I was making this card it grew on my.  I love all the versatility that this design gave me.  I used some embellishments on the card that I thought went great with the themed paper.  Burlap is something that I am using with my paper projects and I think that it gives it a great look.  I embossed the top circle with silver embossing powder and then used the Artiste kudos stamp set (D1530) as the stamped image.  Then I used the image "Love u" from the Artiste word ballon stamp set (D1531) in the middle.  I hope that you enjoyed this card and be sure to stop by Mojo Monday and check out all the other fabulous enteries.  Until next time...

Clearly the Best: Coordinate With Cricut® Cuts (S01E06)

H2H Birthday by the Numbers

Hello my friends !!!  Hope you all are having a wonderful and creative day today.  This weeks Heart2Heart Challenge was to make a birthday card and incorporate numbers.  So my Grandmas' birthday is in November (shhhhhh it's a surprise) and she was the first one to come to my mind.  I used the Avonlea paper pack  to make her card and stamped the images using Smokey Plum ink which is my most favorite color and the SOTM Baroque Boarders (which not available anymore...sorry).  The Smokey Plum is dark enough to see on just about anything but not to dark to where it covers the paper that you stamp on.  I cut out the 3 flowers using the Cricut Artiste cartridge page 54.  I added some bling on the top corner and bottom corner and the happy birthday stamp is from the Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday D1529 which can only be received from buying the Artiste cartridge.  Be sure to stop by Heart2Heart and check out all the other enteries.....Until next time
