MFT Sketch Challenge #294


Hey stamping friends πŸ™‚ I’m so excited to get some crafty time on a Friday afternoon! I was lucky enough to get a day off from work and I’m the only one home. The company I work for is moving to a new building and the movers and our IT department needed an extra day in addition to the weekend, so we couldn’t work today…awwww too badΒ (insert evil laugh here). I’m playing along with the MFT Sketch Challenge this week and here’s the sketch:


Can you believe I’ve had the Roughing It stamp set this long and this is the first time I’m using it?!? Silly girl. I colored this sweet little image with Copics. We love camping so this will be the perfect card for my hubby! I also used the MFT Plaid Patterns 6×6 Paper Pack.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you find some time to get crafty this weekend πŸ™‚

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 12


Hey friends πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by today! It’s time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs. I always go along with the sketch, and I try to take inspiration from the photo too, so I thought the Wine Not set was perfect for this challenge! I also used the Zig Zag Stitched Circles Dies on my card.

August 17

I colored this little cutie with Copics…oh my I can’t remember the last time I colored!! It felt so good to get a little color therapy session going, but man oh man am I out of practice!! I am going to try to remedy that since our summer of camping is over πŸ™ I’ll have lots more time in my craft room!

Thanks for joining me today!

MFT Color Challenge & Mojo Monday


Hi there πŸ™‚ Does it feel like summer is coming to a close to you? We just got back from our last camping trip of the summer on Sunday and I have to say it felt good to be home! While away (we were only home 4 days out of 3 weeks!), I often thought that I wished I had brought my coloring supplies and some stamps along with me. It’s been so long since I’ve colored anything, I was really missing it! Another thing about summer…I don’t seem to do any card making at all except for my design team obligations, so I haven’t joined in any challenges either! Today I’m joining in on two challenges, the MFT Color Challenge and Mojo Monday:



I used the MFT set called Pure Innocence Loads of Thanks, along with the matching die to save my fingers from fussy cutting this little cutie! I also used the MFT Farm Fresh Gingham 6×6 Paper PackΒ and the Stitched Circle Dienamics. I colored her with Copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to pop back tomorrow, I’ve got another card to share…more coloring!

SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 11


Hi there! Ok, I’ve got a confession to make…I feel guilty that this card was super simple to make and included no stamping or coloring!! It’s time for a new Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs!


With the new It’s A Celebration Patterned Paper Collection, all of the work was done for me! All I did was add a few streamers from the Party Banner Duo Sugar Cut and the Celebrate SugarCut and done! It just seems too easy doesn’t it?!? I love feeling like I can whip up a nice card in a snap with products like this!!

I hope you’ll join us this week, we love seeing what you create!

Crafter’s Companion – Together Forever


Can I tell you how in love I am with the new Together Forever Collection from Crafter’s Companion?!?! It may only be available on HSN right now, and if it’s sold out (like usually happens because Sara Davies demonstrates the product and she is just too fabulous and makes us want everything!!), when it comes to the Crafter’s Companion site you have got to stock up! What a quick and easy way to make elegant cards! I can’t get enough of the silver shine of the Luxury Foiled Card Pad! Here are the supplies I used for this card:

Together Forever Signature Collection Decorative Metal Die – Mr & Mrs
Together Forever Signature Collection A4 Luxury Foiled Card Pad
Together Forever Signature Collection – Luxury Matt Mirror Card
Die’sire Metal Dies – Contemporary Hearts

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Crafter’s Companion – On Your Birthday


Hi there! Oh boy, it does not get any simpler than this one folks! I was thinking of a birthday card I could make super quickly for someone and I instantly thought of all the goodies in the Just For Men Collection (which by the way, is NOT just for men!) from Crafter’s Companion and I came up with this card using the On Your Birthday Embossing Folder. I simply embossed it once on white cardstock, then used two scraps of hot pink and lime green and embossed again, then trimmed down the words to size. Added a few sequins and voila! I could make a bunch of these by just switching out the colors of card stock!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I hope you’ll make time to play along with us this week! Plus, don’t forget there’s a prize at the end of the month and you could be shopping in the SugarPea Designs store with some extra goodies in your cart for free!


SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge #9


Hey there πŸ™‚ It’s time for a new challenge at SugarPea Designs and this week’s inspiration photo had me wanting to dive into a freezer full of treats head first!

July 29th

I knew immediately I’d be breaking out one of my favorite sets from the last release, Summer Scoops! And what’s more fun than a matching die?? Yay, no fussy cutting! I added a few Stitched Flags to top it off, what a super easy card this was!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll find some time to play with us this week πŸ™‚

Crafter’s Companion ~ Together Forever Collection


Hi stamping friends πŸ™‚ I’m excited to share another project from the Together Forever Collection from Crafter’s Companion with you today! This collection was shown on HSN a week or two ago and there are only a few items left, but I’m hoping it will be available on the Crafter’s Companion site soon, because every item in this collection is so helpful in making fancy looking cards fast!

I hope you can see in the photo the rainbow look of the designer paper background, it has a wonderfully pretty look when it hits the light! This paper is from the A4 Luxury Foiled Card Pad. I also used the Celebrate and Forever in my Heart decorative metal dies to create this simple but fancy looking card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
