Paper Cutz Challenge #6

I made this card for this weeks Paper cutz Challenge: Make a baby card with the colors green, yellow and orange. I really hope that was the challenge- I read the details and then lost them along with all of my emails, made the card and then started to doubt what I remembered.

I drew up this image realy quick and then just put him/her layered onto matts. The orange is glittered cardstock. I used a martha Lace punch and then added some ribbon. I wanted to add some flowers at the bottom, but my mom didn't have any so I tied ribbon along the bottom, she had the perfect colors-

Paper Cutz #5

This weeks challenge over at Paper Cutz was to make a card with something flying. I had trouble this week, with the new Digi blog getting set up and the materials here are just not what I am used to. I really want my sewing machine :) and all of my tools. I know it's stretching things, but I really didn't have time to make up another image and my mom doesn't have stamps - Sorry Mary, it's a little far reached....It's just not what I wanted it to look like :(

The image I drew and you can view on my digi blog. The paper and embellishments are from Anna Griffin (Michaels clearance.)

Crystal Embelishment Swirls

I was looking through a book and it had a great idea in it that I wanted to try. I went to show my mom and she was in the middle of taking all of her stickers off the sheat and taking her chipboard off to put it into plastic bags. What was left was the negative space and these beautiful swirls!

My mom got these at a craft warehouse. They are plastic with flat bottoms. I have some that I got at Michaels at home. When I get back I want to make this with crystals. I colored the bottoms with my bic markers to match her herritage book she is making.

I put the plastic sheet on with some temporary tape---hard to see the plastic, but it's there. You can use anything see-through.

I laid them out the way that I wanted after placing some glue down. The best glue for this is Tacky. I use Aleen's- it takes longer to dry on this material, so don't do the next step until it is completely dry.

Here it is all glued down.

Trim around the design and you are done. Use them anywhere you want a little design and texture.

I have been so busy with my new blog that I haven't been posting here like I should. It also makes it hard that I do not have my tools and room to do some of the things I like-
BUT I am making a tutorial for some textured -ummmm, not sure what to call them-(Sorry) Anyway, got it done, but have to wait for the glue to dry and I will cut it out and post the details here.

Paper Cutz Challenge #3

Another week has come and gone. I am still in Oregon and still missing my craft room, but very happy to be here with my family.

This week at Paper Cutz, the challenge was to make a Halloween card without using Orange or Black. My intention was to use Purple and green, but my mom didn't have any purple paper, so I used brown. I really should have made my image smaller. I accidentally left a large brown flower on the card while I colored and when I came back, I decided that I loved the look-very unique.

Paper Cuts #3

Time for Paper Cutz Challenge --- This week was 1-2-3: 1 Ribbon, 2 Colors and 3 Buttons...I really hope I got that right, LOL -- Make sure to hop over and check out the rest of the Designs made by the Team- They will be posted tomorrow (Friday)

My mom thought of the idea to use (Donkey) and the cactus with brown and green as my two colors. The ribbon is just a small peice on a tag- I was trying to think outside the box on that one :) I cut the cactus out and popped it up on top for more dimmension and added some liquid glaze.

I hope you enjoy the card- If you like the image, check out my other blog at
