Another Thursday Challenge!

It's Thursday! That means it's time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog! This time we are being sponsored by Di's Digis. The prize is 5 free images! Alright the recipe for this challenge called for 2 embellishments. Here is my interpretation, I have to admit I was tempted to add more embellies but I controlled myself. The image is called Boo Bear with Balloon by Crafty Sentiments. If you entered Crafty Sentiments Digi Challenge last Thursday make sure you check out the blog to find out who the winner was!

MS word/number stamps, prisma pencils, copics, prisma markers, My Mind's Eye Paper

Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop is Here!

Good Morning everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday! As I posted in a previous post Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog is having a blog hop to celebrate it's super cute new releases!

If you are a follower of Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog, leave a comment on each blog participating on the blog hop and post about the blog hop somewhere in your blog, you will be entered in the drawing to win the whole set of new releases! How cool is that? Okay if you've been following the hop you should have just left Jac's blog.

If you didn't arrive from Jac's blog you should go to Crafty Sentiments Digi Blog to start the hop!

The theme for the hop was Sun and Sea. I did 2 projects for the hop. The first one is a flower easel card. I gotta say if you haven't made an easel card you should definitely give it a try. They're very easy and fun to make. I used the new Pat in Summer digi. Can you say bling? I used prima pearls, stickles and glimmer mist on the card. I colored Pat with my copics, prisma pencils and prisma markers.

The next project is a cute and simple gift box using Pat the Fairy. She is too cute. I used 8x8 cardstock to make the box. The paper is DCWV. I colored Pat the fairy with copics and prisma pencils.
As you can tell I had a lot of fun playing with these digis. They are so cute! Thanks for stopping by! All right your next stop is Jo's fabby blog so go and check her creations out! Don't forget to leave a comment. :) Hope you all have a happy Saturday!

Vintage Card/Photo Frame

Just wanted to show everyone a quick card I made. I just cut some 12x12 card stock, scored it two times at 3 1/2 in wide and 5 in long and then finished decorating it. I made the pockets from left over scrapping paper and covered it with DCWV Mariposa paper. The words are from Tim Holtz distressables and doo-dads and the door lock is from Melissa Frances. The lace, paper and timmy words are from my vintage swap partner Nancy. (Thanks Nancy!) I'm thinking the pockets can hold money, gift cards, tags, notes...etc. This project didn't take me that long to make so I will definitely be making more of them. :)

Princess Castle Card Template

Hello everyone! Here is a card I made for Instyle Stamps. The image I used is one of their images called Princess Clarissa. I colored her hair with prismacolor markers, her skin and dress with copics and her eyes with prisma color pencils. I then added some glitter to the white part of her dress and hat, cut her out, poofed out her dress by bending the sides and glued her down with a popdot. I cut the card and grass out with the cricut and the word celebrate and the flowers are rub ons. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder to give the front part of the castle some texture and used some Nikki Silvis patterned paper for the inside. I also colored and cut out a carriage (which is a digi freebie here) and put it inside the card.

If you want the svg file for the template you can download it here. If you don't have a cricut you can download the 2 part pdf file here and here. Then you can just cut out the templates and trace them on your cardstock. ( The file has two pieces: the whole castle and the inside part of the castle.) Thanks for stopping by! Hope you can put this card template to good use!

Exciting news and fancy shoe template...

Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted to share my news with you all. :) I am now part of Crafty Sentiments Digi Design Team! Yay! I love digital stamps, I can customize the size of the stamps and they keep my hands ink free! They will be having challenges starting next thursday on their blog so make sure you stop by and play, you might even win a prize! Go check out the blog for more details.

As a celebration I made a template for a super cute shoe. The one I made is a bit smaller than my hand but its so cute! You can use them as place settings for a girl's party or a bride's bachelorette get together. Add pearls, bling, feathers or flowers...the possibilities are endless.

I cut part of the front and back of the shoe in slits so you can glue and bend them to the shape of the shoe.

Download the file here. Enjoy!
