The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Challenge#321-Paper Piecing

Our current challenge at The Cat's Pajamas is a fun one that I haven't done in a CRAZY long time! We are doing a PAPER PIECING challenge!!

For my challenge card, I used the SUPER cute Constellation Prize! I decided to pair it with some super cute Doodlebug paper, that I THINK was meant for mermaid cards or something, but I do what I want, ok??? I used the awesome 3x3 Star CutUps and the Stitched Cloud CutUps as well to decorate my card. Because I was having a super hard time trying to decide what to do with my sentiment, I decided to stamp it on the cloud...and omg...it worked, and I really loved it. What do you think?

Here are the products from The Cat's Pajamas that I have used:

Here are the details to the challenge!:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.

So, that is it for me for now!! I sure hope you had a chance to play along with this awesome challenge, and if you haven't what are you waiting for!??! 
Get on it!!!

CYCI#134-Pet Challenge

Hey there, and welcome to this week's Can You Case It? Challenge!! This week's challenge is all about PETS!! Now, I personally don't have a pet any longer...sniff sniff, but I used to have the cutest little dog name Sophie, so I decided to put a cute little doggie on my card today!

My image is from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set called Totally Paw-some! I paired him with the Doodlebug Puppy Love paper pad, and I even used the matching Puppy Love Sprinkles that go along with it! I of course had to add some gingham ribbon, brads, and a spiral clip to hold my sentiment on! My balls....hehehehhee, she said balls.....were colored and cut out seperately. 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you all  joining me and the amazing crew at Can You Case It!!  
You can stop by the CYCI website to get all the details! 
Til next time, have a STAMPY day!!

Crazy 4 Magic Sketches

Hey there party people, and welcome to this week's Saturday challenge from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! This week's theme is MAGIC, so of course I had to use the new Make Your Own Magic set!

I also paired it with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges sketch challenge. I'm hosting the challenges this month, so I am super in love with this sketch!

For my card, I used the Make Your Own Magic set paired with some Echo Park paper. For my main image, I cut it out using MFT Die-namics. I used buttons from different makers(MFT and Recollections), gingham ruffled ribbon, brads, black twine, spiral clips, and some MFT Sno Cone grosgrain.

C4C-Back to School

This week's challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog is a fun back to school challenge. With the kids headed back to school, the challenge was to make any card, scrapbook page, or item that had a back to school theme. I decided to make an altered notebook....yeah, I promise I wasn't sick when this happened.

I took a normal composition notebook and covered it with Martha Stewart paper. I used the MFT Apple Die-namics to make my apple, and a sentiment from the Happiness is Reading set  from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps set for my sentiment. I would have LOVED to have a notebook like this for my journal when I was in school. How about you??

My letters and numbers are thickers, and I used some May Arts Twill, and buttons from various manufacturers. 

Well, that is it for me for now...my craft area looks like a bomb dropped on it, and it isn't going to clean itself, apparently.
Be sure to check out the Crazy 4 Challenges blog for more details and to see the amazing work my teammates have done.

The colors we are using are Greens, Yellows, and Neutrals!

At first, I had no clue which way I was going to go with this challenge, and then things just started happening in my brain.

This is from the The Cat's Pajamas set, Space Cadet. I paired it with paper from two different Doodlebug paper pads, one from Carta Bella(the b&w stripes) and lots of fun embellishments.
