Peachy Keen and Crafty Sprouts!

I made this card to go along with the challenge over at Peachy Keen, but I couldn't resist adding a Crafty Sprouts sentiment! The challenge is sketch challenge with a twist...

So I had to use the sketch and the twist, (you have to paper piece.) I used a large snowman stamp and paper pieced  the scarf, bow and present in two different papers, the hat and trim on the hat-the holly here is a close up of the cuts...

I also used  red Stickles for the holly berries, and Crystal Stickles for the dots on the present- the ribbon is 3 girls Jam  the perfect touch for this card! The sentiment is Crafty Sprouts from the "Have a Cool Yule" set.

Calendar Blog hop!

Well good Morning all my crafty friends!! Welcome to the

Calendar Blog hop with our amazing talented hostess Zeni!!!

 Just a quick shout out to Zeni- Thank you for letting me join

 you this weekend and thank you for setting this all up!!!

You should have just come here from Sandra if not please go

 back to Zeni- I dont want you to miss a thing-There is also

 some grand prize blog candy- make sure to read the details

 with Zeni as well!

Today we are all going to be showing a calendar of some

 type. The project I made is a count down calendar for my

 little kids for Christmas. I started at 25 and will count down

 25 days to we hit the last tag, witch would be Christmas

 day- My kids are old enough to understand that there is an

 anticipation of an upcoming event but not old enough to 

count the "sleeps" (as Emma says) to reaching the day they 

are waiting for. So I hope this helps!! :) Here are a few of 

the days so far.

This paper was from the kit I received from Paper Primper Altered Art  I love this kit, the paper was so fun and perfect for so many projects! I inked all the edges, and used a Peachy keen face from Winter faces pk521.

ok off you go to Erika at Crafty Sprouts!! Im sure you will have an amazing time I can hear your ohhs and awwws already!!!

Decorate To Celebrate!

Good morning my scrappy friends, it is my guest design day over at Decorate to Celebrate! It is a birthday party all month long with both Amy and Rhonda having birthdays in November- So please come on over and join in the challenge!!! Here is my project, I made a tag tree and table decorations for my step dads birthday party. we had about 80 people there, I wanted an option for people other than the guest book. I made up a bunch of tags with a ribbon and flowers attached to match his party colors and had the guest pen a note or a birthday wish. We used red carnations for the center of each table... there were 11, and we put little birthday flags in them. He is the baby of 17 children, born in Holland- he moved here when he was just out of school. Happy Birthday Jimte! Come on over to Decorate to Celebrate and join in if you can. You still have time.. It closes on November 29th!

Crafty Sprouts blog hop release!

Happy  Friday! Today is day number 2 of Crafty Sprouts release party! Did we have some super fun stamps to work with or what? By now you have seen some really cute projects using the 2 new Crafty Sprouts sets that were released today, Feeling Icky and Fanpire.  You can pick up your very own set but you also have a smashing chance to win the entire set of 4! Head on over to Crafty Sprouts to start the hop and find out how!

You can find these stamps and the sets we shared yesterday here- I was so over the moon when I saw the Fanpire set.. I have a few teenage girls in my life that have been waiting to see the movie so I thought I would make a few little bookmarks with a pocket on the back to hold some tickets to the new movie! Here it is!
here is a close up-please be kind- its the first time I ever used Copics! I also added some MS glitter to her eyes for some eye shadow and a glaze pen to her lips, the ribbing on her top and  her boots.
Here is my second card with the Feeling Icky set- I used Create a Critter, welded the two lady bugs together with my Gypsy. Then added PK princess faces, chalk, white pen and a glaze pen. For the inside I used some spellbinders dies to make the sentiment pop a little.

Birthday Party Blog hop for Amy and Rhonda!!!

Once upon a time (okay, once upon two times nearly a decade apart), two girls were born... These girls were both visited by their fairy godmothers and granted very special talents... One was given the talent of creating the most beautiful mini scrapbook albums while the other was given the talent of creating some really amazing explosion boxes... Each of these girls would one day begin blogging, and this is how they would meet...

Somewhere over the rainbow, you'll find the lovely Rhonda... Where scrap happens and paper flies... And somewhere near the zoo, you'll find dear Amy... Where giraffes prance and frolic to her heart's content...

One day, these two lives collided and Rhonda and Amy have become forever friends!! Lovely Rhonda had this incredible idea for a new twist on a challenge blog, so she contacted dear Amy and asked her to take care of the "technical" side... For many months, they have enjoyed CELEBRATING the get-togethers and parties that make life fun by showcasing the DECORATIONS that others share... And THAT is how the Decorate to Celebrate! challenge blog began...

Today, it's time to CELEBRATE good times and good friends with this "BIRTHDAY PARTY" Blog Hop and Birthday Project Link-Up that will last all month long!! Rhonda, who is turning the big 5-0 this year deserves a month-long celebration, don't ya think??? And Amy, who will forever stay 29 (for the 12th time) has always been a BIG believer in the "Birth-month Celebration"... Soooooo... After the hop has ended, you'll be able to create a "Birthday Party" themed project and LINK IT UP at the Decorate To Celebrate! challenge blog!! Usually, your entry needs to be a decoration or party supply, but THIS MONTH (and this month only), you can link up ANY Birthday Party project (cards, layouts, 3D Art...). We'll be giving out some Birthday Presents all month long, but you'll need to enter to WIN!! You'll find more details on the challenge blog... For now, let's get hopping!! :)

Rhonda and Amy have assembled a few of their creative friends to join them on this Birthday Party Adventure through Bloggie-Land... Along the way, you'll find some incredibly creative projects to celebrate Rhonda and Amy... If you came here from AUDREY then you are in the right spot!! If you have just happened upon my blog, I'd love for you to join the PARTY so CLICK HERE to start at Rhonda's Blog (http://scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/) so you don't miss any of the FUN!!

For my project today I made....Amy a layout! I used my minds eye, and some card stock to match.

And Rhonda a little birthday present! I used my PK stamps for the face and my Crafty Sprouts "Have A Cool Yule!" for the tag.

Alright! who wants some Birthday Blog candy!!!! I have a little tag mini book kit all made up and waiting for your Halloween Pictures! Please leave a comment- if you follow make sure you leave 2!!!

Thanks for checking out my project, your next stop will be... NORMA!!!  however, before you go, be sure to leave a comment on this post so that you'll be entered to WIN the GRAND PRIZE!!

Here's the entire line-up!! You'll finish up at http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/ where you'll be able to start entering YOUR Birthday Party projects for a chance at some Birthday Prizes tomorrow!! This challenge will last ALL month long, so we hope you'll join us for the CELEBRATION!!
