Challenge# 20: Cricutless/ Stamping w/ video

Time for another challenge!! This month is a little strange, since there are 3 wednesdays this month. so just wanted to let everyone know that I will not be announcing the winner until the 8th of April.

This challenge is a fun one. Cricutless/ Stamping. This is a great chance to use your pattern papers, stamps, stickers, rub ons , embossing folders  and cutting dies! Use whatever you want to create an original project, just as long as you don't use an electronic diecutter machine (cricut, pazzles, silhouette sd, craft robo, gazelle, cougar....etc) AND you must feature some sort of stamping on your card (be it a sentiment or an image, ) digital stamps are A OK :-)

Feel free to combine this challenge, with a sketch challenge, or color challenge, or anything of that sort. But you cannot combine this challenge with another "Cricutless" Challenge , because that is not a challenge at all.

Once again the prize for this month is
Mother's day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge.

If you don't have a cricut, no problem you can still enter a project for a chance to win, and I will send you another crafty prize of equal value

This week our guest designer is Priyanka from Priyanka's Creations
 and she created this Amazingly lavish and beautiful wedding stair step card. I love how she used fabric on her card. You can tell that she put ALOT of work into creating this masterpiece.
Please take the time to stop by her website and give her some love. She is one talented woman!

First up for my Design Team Ladies is Amanda

I love love love this card she made. sometimes simple and elegant is just the way to go, and I love the giant buttons inside of the flowers.
Next up is Elsa..
I am so smitten by this little honey bear, he is so sweet. you can't stay mad at him at all. The colors make this card a perfect gender neutral card great for any apology

Last but not least is Ivette

All I can say is wow. She used a jumbo fiskars bacground stamp and colored them in with her copic markers. I am sure that was time consuming but wow did that pay off! It comes across so pefectly spring!! Just in time for mother's day. Also love cards with the coordinating inside.

Episode 92: The Cutting Cafe Shaped Card w/ Make the Cut Tutorial

hey there,

Whew. Let me just tell you it was very difficult getting this video up. The first few attempts of making it the Make the cut tutorial section the sound was garbled so I ended up having to record it with NO sound and do 100% screen annotations which was very time consuming. The end result is very effective i think, and its a good tutorial.

just to let you know the first few minutes of the tutorial (for make the cut)there is no sound, but I there will be sound again when I show you how to put the card together.

I am so happy to be back in my groove making videos for you again, and I hope you enjoy this

This month for the Cutting cafe the Monthly inspiration is SHAPE CARDS.  Regina has created a plethora of ADORABLE cute shape card cutting files which in many many instances come with matching sentiments.

The shape card file that I'm using is called Candy Shaped Card. This set comes with not only 1 but 3 templates for cutting candy shaped cards  and matching sentiments. I am using the Peppermint Shaped Card template from that set.

the sentiment I am using comes from Scrappy Moms Stamps Sweet Somethings stamp set.

Hope you enjoy my card and tutorial

Craft Show Recap


What a weekend. Sorry I haven't posted the last few days I was trying to catch up on some desperately needed sleep. I had been so sleep deprived staying up late, and waking up early, or not going to bed at all, the last few days before my show. That the moment I got home after my craft show I went home and slept the sleep of the dead for over 18 hours.

Here are some pictures from my show. i apologize in advance about the quality they were taken from my cell phone because in the rush of getting things ready I left the memory card for my Camera at home in my computer.

Lots and lots of Cards, Card packs and single cards

I will be back in a few to take pictures of the individual items I have left over, and will add it to this post. I know it's hard to see what is what.. In these photos
