Paper Variety Tic Tac Toe Challenge

30 Mar

The Paper Variety challenge was to pick 3 things from a tic tac toe board to create your project.  I chose: 2+ flowers, a baby theme, and creating a layout.  Here it is:

Supplies: Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate Paper, Jenni Bowlin; Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Metal Charms: Making Memories; Butterfly Punches: Martha Stewart (just wasn’t done using them with this paper after my last card!); Edge Distresser: Heidi Swapp

LOVE this LYB paper.  It feels like fabric, and looks so cool distressed and layered!  The flowers were made by freehand cutting circles, distressing the edges, folding up the edges, and adding them all together to make one bigger flower (I decided this counts for my 2+ flowers.)  I also like that I played around with some different color combos here.  Makes for a unique effect, I think.

I love this picture of my mom with The Weebo, and as I had already scrapped it for her, I decided to do a whole new take on one to keep for me!  Enjoy!

Paper Variety Get Well Challenge

16 Mar

The challenge was to create a get well/recovery card.  I was also playing along with the color challenge at Crate Paper to use the colors yellow and gray.  Here is my card:

OK, yes I know I went crazy with the pearls, but that’s half the fun, right?  🙂  Supplies: Letter stickers: Making Memories, American Crafts; Paper and Diecuts: Crate Paper; Pearls: Prima, Basic Grey, and Recollections; Ribbon: My Mind’s Eye.  Both butterfly punches are Martha Stewart (LOVE them with this paper!), and I used a Jenni Bowlin mini album to create my bracket shape.  This is a very different card for me, but that’s what makes it FUN-trying new things!  Have a great day! 🙂

Jenni Bowlin Challenge Card

9 Mar

I made this card last weekend for two different challenges.  Jenni Bowlin was having a blog hop, and the challenge was to create a card in an hour that had a dangling object on it.  Good thing I started right away, as it took me the entire hour to finish!  I also used a sketch from a challenge by Tifanie DeGough at an online crop at A Walk Down Memory Lane. Everything is Jenni Bowlin except the twine (from Studio Calico) and the letter stickers (Cosmo Cricket.)  I also used a Heidi Swapp edge distresser and a square punch. Absolutely LOVE the final result!

Paper Variety Green Challenge

6 Mar

At the Paper Variety, this week’s challenge was to create a project using the color green.  Here is my card:

Thinking of You Card

The patterned paper is Girls’ Paperie, green cardstock is Bo Bunny, flower is Maya Road, brown ink is Stampa Rosa, and the stamp is Savvy Stamps.  I used malted milk Jenni Bowlin on the patterned paper to get more of a soft yellow tone.

Not too late to play along at!

Also, there is an online crop going on at A Walk Down Memory Lane this weekend.  Come join the fun at:

Reject Blog Hop

5 Mar

For all those that submitted to Paper Crafts but didn’t make the cut-we are having our very own blog hop!

This was the first time I had ever submitted to Paper Crafts.  They were looking for projects based off of certain sketches, and I had fun playing along!

Here are my three projects:

Sketch 12-You’re Fabulous

I made the flower out of Girls’ Paperie paper and added Stickles to the edges of every other layer.  The card base is made from some gorgeous Bo Bunny glitter paper.  The stickers are Girls’ Paperie.

Sketch 7-Deepest Sympathies

The patterned paper is Making Memories, letter stickers are October Afternoon, and I used Studio Calico Lunch Tray Mr. Huey for the circle and on the letters.

Sketch 22-Wishing You The Hairy Best

I used a Hambly rubon and Cosmo Cricket letter stickers on this one.

I enjoyed making these cards, and I hope you enjoy them too!
