Crafty Gals Corner- For the Boys


Hello Crafty Friends,

For the Boys is the theme of this month's challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  I was drawn to this beautiful digital stamp by Pattie's Creation Digital Images and couldn't want to color it up. 

 I colored the image with my Copics.


Flowers: Y19, Y15, Y11

Leaves: YG13, YG11

I then cut out the one side of the image and mounted the image on a piece of Authentique Classique: Elegant pattern paper and then matted that on cardstock from my stash.

I die cut the sentiment from a die in my stash (not sure where I got it) out of Black cardstock.  

To finish the card, I added some black enamel dots to the corners.

Thank you for stopping by and leave me a comment.  Then come join the challenge with us at Crafty Gals Corner.

Bitten by the Big 2- Country Fair


Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a fun new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2, the Country Fair.  I decided to create a scrapbook layout for this challenge.

I created the title with an SVG from Miss Kate's Cuttables cut with my Cricut and cardstock.  I then used pattern paper from Doodlebug's Down on the Farm as well as the icons.  The red shape was from my stash and was an old cutout from Creative Memories.

I added some yellow bakers twine and wooden star to the left hand side.   I then added my pictures.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and then create your own project and join us on the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog.

Elephant: C5, C3, C1

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop.  This month and the theme is Masculine makes. If you are following along the hop, you should have arrived from Steph Jandrow'sblog.  Make sure to read through my blog, comment below and then continue to Maureen Rauchfuss' blog.

If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each blog.

Here are the projects I created for our Masculine theme.


I created this fun box card for a very special 5 year old that loves all things Star Wars.

The box card part was cut with my Cricut from Dreaming Tree. 

I then stamped the images from Kindred Stamps and colored them with my Copics.

The unique card needed an awesome envelope to put it in, so the project is the matching envelope from the same file.


Together they look very cute together.

Bitten by The Bug 2- May Flowers


Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we start a new challenge with a "May Flowers" theme over at Bitten by the Bug 2.  I love Gerber daisies, so when I saw this cut file from Dreaming Tree, I knew I had to make it for this challenge.

 I cut the file with some cardstock from my stash and wrapped the elements around the tea light.  

 To finish it off, I added the leaves strip to the bottom.  It was really quite simple and is a free svg file from Dreaming Tree.  I could see these at a tea party or wedding as centerpieces as well. 

So, now it is time for you to create something with flowers using your Cricut and sharing it with us at Bitten by the Bug 2.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

 Hello Crafty Friends,

 I hope your May is going great so far.  We have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner and it is all about the ladies.  Our sponsor this month is Moonflower digistamps. 

I was lucky enough to get to play with this darling stamp called "Lily the White Queen".

I tried a new color combo on her dress.

Dress and Crown: R59, R56, RV34, R81

Skin: Ell, E21, E51, E50

Hair: E99, YR24, YR23

Flowers: BV34, BV31

Leaves: YG13, YG11

The pattern paper is from Frank Garcia's Wild and Free collection.  The sentiment is from Queen and Company.  When the card was all complete, I used Wink of Stella on her ruffles and crown.

Here is a closer look at her:
