7/28 Lawn Fawn Watercolor Challenge

Happy Monday!

Lawnscaping has a really fun fun challenge up-Watercolors!

At first I thought I would make a card but then I really wanted to use the Hello Sunshine collection on a layout.  So I broke all my Lawn Fawn goodies out and make this layout- Oh Happy Day!


I used my watercolor paints in yellows, oranges and blue to mimic the sun peeking out of the clouds.  I really had fun making it and I so love playing with the Lawn Fawn papers.  This is my first time making a layout with the LF papers and I sooo love them!

I have a video on how I made this layout;

Thursday Lawn Fawn & Distress Inks Card

Happy Thursday!

I had time to play this week and the new challenge over at Lawnscaping was right up my alley!  The challenge was to get out and use your Distress Inks!  How fun! Right?
So I love my Distress Inks and I got them all out-- 3 shades of Blue, Orange Marmelade, and Walnut Stain and I got busy.  Here is what I came up with.

I broke out my Say Cheese stamp set and made that the focul point of my card. I then had this little set with the cutest little owl and framed him in the photo frame.  For the background I used my Distress Ink Blues and created the background using some water color paper, heat embossing the stars and then misting it with water and perfect pearls.  I really like how it turned out.

I put together a video on how this card came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  See  you soon.  Havea  wonderful and crafty day!

Thursday Lawn Fawn Background Challenge

Happy Thursday!

There is a new Lawnscaping Challenge up this week and it is a really fun one!


The challenge to create your own background using Lawn Fawn stamps was sooooo fun!  I broke out my stars stamp set and dies and got busy!  I looked around my supplies and decided to get really inky and I broke out my distress inks and mini mister as well!  I had a blast!!
Of course, I made this one for my son's lunch box.  He is so cute because he saves all of them in a shoe box and he just loved getting them.

I started my background with some watercolor paper and then stamped and heat embossed the random stars.  I then got inky with my distress ink and then misted some water on it,  I then got out my Core'djnations and created the base and star.  So  love how this turned out!

supply list
cardstock- water color paper, Core'dinations Gemstones- Glitter Silk and 110 lb smooth
stamps & dies- lawn fawn
ink- distress ink, jenni bowlin

I made a video showing the process on how I created the background.  Hope you enjoy!

Some Odd Girl and Freckled Fawn Blog Hop

Happy Wednesday!

So excited about today becuase Some Odd Girl is teaming up with Freckled Fawn!
A Freckled and Odd hop!
Fawnies and Oddies share the stage, mix up products and bring the WOW with a fun blog hop that runs now through Monday, May 5th at midnight EDT! See how cute and quirky stamps pair up with sweet and darling embellishments as you hop along, and be sure to leave a comment at each stop because there will be two winners! Each will get a fabulous prize from BOTH Some Odd Girl and Freckled Fawn!
You might have arrived here from the Freckled Fawn blog.   if so, you’re on the right track!  If not, you can get started at the Freckled Fawn blog.
For my project I used the April Oh Deer Me embellishment kit.  This kit totally rocks! There was washi tape, wood veneer, alphabet, and puffy stickers!  Yeah, I know embellie heaven!  
So now it was time to play! I decided to make a layout about my boys adventure at a local splash park.  

The washi tape had a pink/red tone combined with gold and I placed that at the top and bottom of my layout!  I LOVED the epic wood veneer banner.  For som reason my oldest says this ALL the time and thought it would be fun to add that to the title.  I then went through my stash and found some more wood veneer from Feckled Fawn and added them to tie together the embellies!  The vellum alphabet is totally amazing.  I love that teal/green color! I then added a puffy heart.

Now it was time to start adding my Some Odd Girl stamps.  I used stamps from 4 different sets (the camera, two different hearts, and 2 different sentiments) I stamped them using my Jenni Bowlin ink in red and grey to tie the colors together. I also added the yummy gold doily from the shop as well.  The Some Odd Girl stamps just rock for adding them to a scrapbook layout!

Now here is the important information you need for the HOP!
Here is your hop list… Feel free to hop at your own pace over the next few days but be sure not to miss anybody, because our winners will be randomly drawn from ANY of the blogs along the hop! Ready? Here we go!
Enjoy the hop, folks, and we sincerely hope you’re inspired by all the fun stuff you see along the way! Thank you SO MUCH to Freckled Fawn and the amazing Fawnies for joining us for this event! Happyhump day, and join us next Wednesday when we announce the winners!  Now you’re off to Jo’s blog, and remember you have until MONDAY, MAY 5th at MIDNIGHT EASTERN to leave your comments. Good luck, and have fun!

Wednesday Lawnscaping Mini Challege

Happy Wednesday

There is a Brand New Lawnscaping Challenge!  The Challenge is to create a mini card or mini card set! 
I need to make a little gift for one of my coworkers.  She does so many nice things for me and I want to give her a couple of cards for all occasions.  So I broke out my Lawn Fawn stamps and got busy!  I have two designs and I just changed the sentiments and so I will have a total of 6 cards in the set.  Each card measures 4x4. 

Here is the first design.  I love that pink flamingo.  I colored her in bright pink using my Spectrum Noir markers.


My second design used the totally cute Gnome!  I just love him.  I once again colored my image with my Spectrum Noir markers.


Here are both of them together.  I am going to make 4 more and just change the sentiments to make a complete mini card set!


I also made a quick video on how I made these little mini cards.  Hope you enjoy it!

Friday LawnScaping Challenge: Clean & Simple

Happy Friday!

So excited that it is the weekend!  We have another jammed packed weekend- I have 2 tennis matches, 1 lacrosse game and 1 practice, 1 party, 1 dinner out-- Yikes!  But I know I will find some time to relax!  Just being able to sleep in longer than 4:45 am is a treat for me!

So I had a little extra time this week and I saw this challenge over at Lawnscaping and I just knew it was one I wanted to enter.  The challenge is to create a Clean and Simple card.  Oh Yeah!  Just what I love to do!


You can Go HERE to see all the details of the challenge!

My oldest is having the Standardized testing all this week and I have been putting little treats in his lunch bag everyday.  So I needed on for today so I broke out my stars stamp set and dies.  I first die cut out my stars and backed them using the Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock.  I then heat embossed in gold the smaller stars.  I stamped my sentiment and then stamped it again on red Gemstone cardstock and fussy cut the little hear and pop dotted it the card!  I love how it turned out.  This sentiment means so much to me because when he was little I would read over and over again the Guess how much I love you? book.  He even still has a stuffed little nut brown bunny that he keeps tucked near his bed!  I hope he likes it!

Monday Gymnastics Card with Moxxie

Happy Monday!

Moxxie has several new collections coming out right now and one of them is called Gymnastics!  At first I thought that I would not be able to work with this collection becuase I don't have any girls and I don't know anyone who has kids that are involved in gymnastics.  I then started to play with it and looked at the B sides and really fell in love with this collection.  I have always loved purple and pink and this collection is full of it.

For my project I started with the the awesome chevron paper and then added a tag using Core'dinations.  I stamped and embossed it using a Lawn Fawn stamp set Reach for the Stars and then used the coordinating dies to cut the  stars.  Finally I added a doily and some fun enamel dots.  I really love how this turned out.  

I also made a video showing you the collection as well as how I made this card


supplies
paper- moxxie
cardstock- core'dinations
stamps- lawn fawn
enamel dots- glitz
twine- the twinery

I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge #75.  The challenge is to use DOTS or HEARTS and I included 3 enamel dots.

Thursday Core'dinations and Lawn Fawn Blog Swapp

Happy Thursday

Today is a really fun week over at Core'dinations because we teamed up with Lawn Fawn.  How fun is that?  Well, for me totally fun becuase it combines two of my faves- cardstock and stamping!!
For my card I used the Gnome Sweet Home set and I just fell in LOVE with this little bee.    I used some Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock  and embossed it with my honeycomb embossing folder from Darice.  I then cut the cardstock in 1/2 and pieced them together to give it a two tone look.  I then used a Smooth Core'dinations tag and stamped my sentiment and bee.  I then stamped the bee again and colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut him out and pop dotted him on the card.  Finally I added some pearls and twine from The Stringery

For my next card I used the Breakfast collection and Say Cheese collection.  I embossed some yummy Core'dinations and sanded it and t hen added some yummy twine from The Stringery!
Now if  you stop by the Core'dinations blog and leave a comment on each day you can win this FABULOUS prize package from Core'dination.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Tuesday Teacher Appreciation

Happy Tuesday!

Jack is in first grade this year and his new teacher is just wonderful.  He loved kindergarten and his teacher last year but for some reason this year is just "awesome" for him.  Every day when I pick him up he has this big smile on his face and when I ask about his day he always responds "awesome!"  So I will be sending his teacher a lot of little notes this year because she is making him just love school.  This is my first one.  I made it with the scraps from my Hall Pass from We R Memory Keepers.

First I punched my paper using the note book punch.  I just love using this punch.  I then layered some of my scraps in the center and then added on top the really adorable die cut.  I then stamped my sentiment using the Lawn Fawn stamps.  It was so easy to put together when you have awesome papers and die cuts.

Friday with the Silhouette and Jillibean Soup

Happy Friday!

Who is happy it is the weekend?  ME!!!  I just finished my first week of work and I am ready for the weekend!  We don't have any plans so I have no idea what we are doing but I am just so excited to have the first week of school done with!!  We do have Jack's open house this Sunday and that is it.  I hope to get some relaxing time in and some scrapping!  I haven't scrapped all week and I am missing it terribly!

Have you heard the news?  Two of my favorite scrapbooking companies have teamed up and I am so excited.  The Silhouette and Jillibean Soup have come together and made some awesome die cuts.  When I heard the news I rushed home and bought all the images.  You know me- I am crazy for my Jillibean.  Well, my mom needed a gift to give to one of her friends and she asked me to make her a gift card set.  My mom loves the clean and simple look of things and immediately I knew what I wanted to do.  Use my new images!  So I used the scalloped circle ( I like this scalloped circle because it is not even- some of the scallops are bigger than others) and I made this CAS card!  I used all my favorites on this card- twine- jillibean soup- lawn fawn!  It couldn't get any better (at least for me-LOL!)

Friday Moxxie Hexagons

Happy Friday!

Are you ready for the weekend?  I will be once I get through today.  My wonderful hubby is taking a 1/2 day off and we are meeting at my school and he is going to help me move the tables from my new room to my old room upstairs and then take the the desks from my old room and move them downstairs.  It is going to be a back breaking afternoon and I totally appreciate his help!  Then on Saturday we have a family get together at my mother in laws and then Sunday is a total day of relaxation!!  The weather is supposed to be perfect with cooler temps (80's) and who knows what we will do!!!

I have been on a clean and simple card kick lately! I needed to make a couple of masculine birthday cards and I needed to make them fast!  Right now I am totally addicted to the hexagon shapes so I got out my Silhouette and cute out a hexagon shape using the new Moxxie Forever Family collection,  and then made a mat for them.  I love to use my sewing machine and I quickly stitched around the card.  I then added my sentiment.  I love my set of Lawn Fawn  sentiments.  They are just perfect.  Next I randomly placed my hexagons on the card.I then pop dotted some to add some dimension and then randomly added some brown buttons.  So quick and easy and just perfect for some upcoming family birthdays!

Wednesday Kite Tails and a Sketch

Happy Wednesday!

I was up last week on the Kite Tails Designs blog with a quick and easy card sketch.  I really like the clean and simple looks to cards.  One of the reasons why I like them so is that they are usually super easy to create and I can use a bunch of my scraps!  I really do not have a lot of scraps because I always use them on my cards.  

My sketch
For this cards I used the Blue Sky Day.  I loved that this collection had the same pattern paper in different colors.  I picked 3 colors and cut a square.  I then cut out of the pattern pieces a circle to add a bit of embellishment.  I then added a touch of bling to the center of the circle.  You always need bling- right??  Finally I added a quick sentiment from my Lawn Fawn stamp set.  I love it when a card can come together in under 15 minutes!
