Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #28

Hello again!

The second challenge I participated in today was from Birthday Sundaes. I love this site because it's always about birthday cards - and who isn't almost always in need of a birthday card???

This week's challenge was to create a birthday card and incorporate buttons.  You can find all the details here: Birthday Sundaes - Challenge 28

All card stock and printed paper are from SEI (Birdie Brunch collection). The ribbon and buttons are from my general embellishment stash. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo.

 I enjoyed making this one because it got me out of my comfort zone with patterned paper. I have a hard time mixing patterns!

Play Date Cafe Challenge #100


So I was able to get two more challenges done today....between naps and such!  :D

This challenge is from Play Date Cafe

We're still playing with the fall colors, but I wanted to keep it bright because I am still in denial that summer is gone.  I do love fall, but winter is not my favorite season by any stretch.

So, fall colors it is - with a bit of sunshine!!

Yes, it's simple, but besides trying to follow the challenge, I wanted to make a cute card to send to someone extremely dear to me who is recovering from a recent surgery.

The card stock is a mix of Bazzill and Stampin Up. The sun and smile were cut from Create A Critter, and the face of the sun is a stamp from PKS.  I am not normally a fan of orange, but I fell in love with the Stickles color Paprika!!  Unfortunately, the picture does not do it justice.  It's a very deep, shiny, rich color. I used it to add color to three clear buttons.  Simple, but fun!

Halloween Challenge

I don't usually make cards for Halloween despite the fact that I really enjoy the holiday. ...if you can call it a holiday?  I like the crisp feeling in the air leading up to it, the colors, the sound of the leaves crunching....and let's not forget the candy!  :)

The next challenge today was to make a Halloween card.  I had fun with this one!

Recipe-  Stampin Up! Eggplant card stock, white basic card stock, ribbon from SEI, lots of pop dots! remnant of spider webbing from Walmart, and Midnight Stickles.  The house and all accents were cut from Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge.

I am entering this card in two challenges:

Paper Playtime - Challenge #56 Halloween Projects

Hiding in My Craft Room - Challenge #13 Halloween Card

Fall Colors Challenge


I love having days off from work with no obligations. My house is clean, laundry is done and I got to spend the day watching "guilty pleasure" TV and working in my craft room. I was able to finish two cards. Funny how fast the day goes when you're doing what you love! Hopefully tomorrow I'll get more done - but the rule of the day is.... Do whatever you want, whenever you want, for Wednesday you go back to work.  ha ha...

So the first challenge is from Whimsical Wednesdays  - Create a card or project inspired by fall colors. Must include a hand made embellishment.

I knew immediately what my hand made embellishment would be. Over the weekend, I took a trip out to Archivers and found these glue disks for making rolled ribbon flowers. I couldn't wait to try one. It just so happened that the only wide ribbon I had on hand was brown, so it worked for the fall colors challenge.

Now that I've tried it, I can't wait to do it again!  It was super easy!

Recipe: scrap Bazzill card stock, printed orange on the Imagine. Leaves/acorn/branch cut from Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge. Yellow grogain ribbon and brown satin ribbon from Offray, bling from Want to Scrap. Sentiment from "Thanks" collection by Fiskars. The glue disk for the ribbon flower is Glubers from Cosmo Cricket.

My Guest Designer!

I know I need to get better at posting more often. Time just gets away from me so quickly these days!

The Scrapbook Expo this year was a lot of fun (as always!), and I came home with TONS of bling, lots of clear stamp sets (for $2.00 each!), and lots more.

Introducing my Guest Designer (and baby sister) - Kristi Wonders!  What I always enjoy most at the Expo are the crops. Each year Kristi participates in the layout contests, and every year she wins or comes in second. This year, she did both!  For the contests, participants are given a set of materials and either 30 or 60 minutes to complete a layout or card. Nothing can be added outside of the products you're given, and you cannot use anything other than scissors and adhesive. So, no die cuts, no Stickles.....only that which you are given.

For the contest she won, she had 2 piece of plain card stock, two full sheets of pattern paper, and one "scrap" of double sided pattern paper; three "crown" brads, and a piece of ribbon (maybe a yard in length?).  Here is her product pile......

And here is the finished product 30 minutes later....

It's a bit hard to see in the picture, but the flower is two pieces of card stock crumpled, wadded up, and then shaped.  That was the element that put her in first place.  Great job!

Here is the project from the night before where she took second place.  The rules for this one were a bit different. She was given the ribbon and the "candy" brads and had 30 minutes to come up with a layout.

Great job Kristi, and congratulations for 1st place third year running!!

 Now back to my projects already in progress.........

Bridal Shower Invitations

I completely forgot that I hadn't posted this yet!  I was asked to make invitations for a bridal shower (fall wedding).  I must admit these were colors I had never associated with a wedding before, but they turned out very nice!

The orange and brown card stock is from Bazzill, and the cream from PTI.  The ribbon is Offray, and the bling is from Want 2 Scrap.  The sentiment was printed from my computer.  The dress is from the Wedding solutions cartridge.  It seems it's always the bling that makes the card!!

Take care!

Expo Time!

Hi there!

I look forward to the Scrapbook Expo here every year.  I start thinking about my layouts and what to pack months in advance.  I even count down the days to registration.  Then a week before the event I realize I still have dozens of pictures to print, paper to choose and embellishments to pick out.  Two days before the event I just start throwing everything into my totes and hope for the best.  Depsite the stress before the event, I still always have  great time.  I can't wait to see what I end up coming home with this year!

I've been busy cranking out cards lately, and I haven't have much time to post.  So, before I go load up the car in preparation for the early crop tomorrow morning, here are a couple of cards I've done lately....

This was the card I made for my mom for her birthday.  I love how this card looked "live". The plain and patterned pink papers were printed from the Blossom cartridge on the Imagine. I wasn't much of a fan of the background papers on the Imagine before, but I'm growing to love them.  The scalloped oval came from one of the many cartridges I have, but now I can't remember!  :-)  The ice cream cone was from Sweet Treats. The sentiment is from Birthday Bash from PTI.  The bling is from Want 2 Scrap.

Want 2 Scrap is my favorite vendor at the Expo!  They sell packets of bling for $1.00 so this is usually my first stop.  Can't wait to see them tomorrow!!!

This next card started as a happy accident.  I was cutting the candy image from the Yummy cartridge and didn't realize I had the sizing wrong.  It was supposed to be 1.5 inches.  But, I liked it and decided I would use it eventually.  Days later I had a bunch of scraps sitting on the corner of my desk, and was inspired to put it all together.  I love the card!  For now it's sitting on my display shelf until I am ready to part with it.

It was cute enough -  but when I added the Stickles, it just made me happy!!

Well - I'm off to pack the car.  See ya soon!

Take Care,

Wedding Bells...

It's been a long time since the last wedding in my family. We like weddings. It's the one time where we're all together and everyone seems to be a bit carefree. I'll do myself and the rest of my family a favor by not sharing some of the stories - but we're looking forward to my cousin's wedding in September. I just love her wedding date!  09-10-11   Cool huh?

Several of us got together to make her wedding invitations, so I cannot claim this as my own by any stretch. The inspiration for the invitation actually came from a card I saw in the gallery on the Splitcoast Stampers website. We changed the colors, the embellishment, and the water-color stamp design. We also chose not to use a pocket inside and instead use the notch tool I bought long ago and used just one time.

The blue card stock is from Hobby Lobby, the white from Papertrey Ink.  The ribbon is Offray. The watermark stamp is from an unknown source, using VersaMark. We embossed the hearts using the swirl/heart Cuttlebug folder. 

I think they turned out really cute!!  Plus, we all had fun working on them together. Can't wait for the wedding reception!!

Whimsical Wednesday - Use your scraps!


I know - I know.... it's not Wednesday!  Whimsical Wednesday's is a challenge site that I just found recently and fell in love with!

This week, the challenge is to use your scraps to make a card or project. Now there's a challenge I could get behind since I have a huge collection of scraps and I'm starting to feel guilty about not using them more. You can find out the rules and more information at the Whimsical Wednesday site HERE.

So here we go...

All of the paper scraps and various embellishments (even the rub-on sentiment) came from leftovers from an old Club SEI monthly kit. I was glad I was finally able to use up some of these as I usually end up with lots of scraps from the kits but can't quite bring myself to get rid of them. It's a bit hard to tell, but the cake was cut out of the white card stock (using Sweet Treat) and then the pattern paper layered behind it.  Hope you like it!

Take Care!

Play Date Cafe Challenge #91

Hi Everyone!  Miss me?  ha ha ha....

I've been away for a while for several reasons. I've been working on a couple invitation orders that took some time, I've been ill, and ... most of all... I needed a short break.  Seems my creativity needed a short vacation.  But - now it's time to get back into the swing of things; try some new challenges, and get ready for this year's Scrapbook Expo crop nights in August. Two days of cropping from 8:00 am to Midnight! Of course, with some shopping at the vendor hall mixed in!

So, I worked on a few challenges today, and I'll be posting them over the next few days. The first one is from The Play Date Cafe. The challenge is to make a card using only black/white and one additional color. Funny how something that would normally seem so simple gets challenging when you're forced to work within certain parameters! :)  You can find more on this challenge (and their other challenges) HERE.

Here is my take on the challenge!

Recipe: Black&White background from American Crafts; all other card stock from my scrap stash; piano, flourishes, sentiment cut from Quarter Note cartridge; ribbon from scrap stash; black pearl from unknown manufacturer. Finished card is 5x5.

Take Care!

Birthday Bonanza

Hi Again Everyone!

LOT'S of birthdays this time of year!! I used to make a bunch of birthday cards a few times a year and send them out as a birthday rolled around. This year my interest in cards has really taken off so I wanted to start making cards that suit the individual wherever I could. I have two that I want to share. The first is for my husband who turned 40 today!

Most of the card stock on this card is from Stampin' Up and my scrap stash. The golfer was done on the Imagine using the All Sports cartridge.  The curvy background behind the golfer is from the Nifty Fifties cartridge (part of the Flamingo cut) and then run through the Swiss Dots Cuttle Bug folder.  The pattern layer is actually left over wrapping paper from his present!  I just loved the texture of this particular wrapping paper.

The second card is one of the most fun cards I ever made. Might be a bit, uh, "riske" for some, but I knew when I came across the picture on the front that I had the inspiration for this card for my friend Brandy. The card stock is from Stampin Up. The picture is from the Internet. There is another color photo on the inside of the card. I do not know the manufacturer of the bling on both sides of this center step card. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash. The layers behind the photo are from the stock shapes on the Imagine.  In case it is not obvious, the man on the front is Jon Bon Jovi.

Hope you enjoyed these!

Take Care!

Time Flies!

WOW!  It's almost the end of June!!  Happy Sunday Everyone!
I have a few things to post, and I'm so far behind!  I finished a major project today (with a lot of help from my mom, sister and cousins) - so I should be able to get to some challenges over the next week or two.

The first card is - believe it or not - a wedding invitation! I got a call from a woman I met at a birthday party for a friend of the family asking if I could put together something for her and her new husband's upcoming wedding. Actually, it was a blessing of the vows as they had a small ceremony earlier in the year. The event was to be for their immediate families and would include an afternoon at a water park. They wanted the invites to be something light an fun with a "join us for a big splash" type theme. This was a challenge for me because I had about a week and a half to design, get approval, and make the invites!  I like this one as it could easily be used for a birthday pool party too!

The card stock is all Stampin' Up and Bazill.  The waves, sun, and diver are from the Life's A Beach Cricut Cartridge.  The sentiment is printed directly on the card stock from my computer. Of course, the face on the sun is from PKS.

The next card was for my friend's baby shower.  The same friend whose invites, favors, and banner were posted last month. Her colors were pink, ivory, and chocolate, so I wanted to continue that theme. I am SO in love with silver mirror paper!! This paper is from World View - and it cuts like butter on the Cricut. The cuts on this card are from the New Arrival cartridge. The rest of the paper is from my scrap stash.  The pink ribbon is from a "by the yard" roll at my favorite local craft store (Memories and Beyond).

Thanks for joining me!

Shiny Happy Birthday!


Can you believe it's June already?  I can't believe how fast time goes now. It's also hard to believe it's been half a month since my last post!

My God Daughter Taylor turned 14 over the weekend, and I knew I wanted to once again use her favorite colors in her card. I started to use the Forever Young cartridge as it has so many cool cuts for girls and women of all ages - but going through a paper storage folder I forgot I had, I found this great blue mirror paper. It reminded me of the guitar of one of my favorite musicians (story for another time). So I pulled out the HM cartridge and paired the blue with a silver mirror kalidoscope paper to make the guitar.  So shiny I almost made one to keep!  I just LOVE shiny things!!  LOL!

I also found this small collection of colored wire that I forgot I had. Ribbon didn't seem to cut it here, so I twisted the blue and green wire together to add in place of ribbon. I like the texture it added.  Once again, I don't really know the manufacturers of the supplies - except the sentiment which is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Bash collection, and the border punch is from Fiskars.

It's A Baby Shower!


I've been having fun creating the invitations, favor boxes and banner for my friend's baby shower coming up very soon!  I really like how everything turned out (hopefully she does too!).

Cartridges used:  New Arrival; Tags, Bags, Boxes & More; and Making the Grade.
Card stock is all Bazzill on the favor boxes and banner.  Invitation card stock is from Papertrey Ink
Ribbon is from Michael's
Sentiment on favor box is from Papertrey Ink
Face stamp on flower is from PKS


Favor Boxes

  Half of the favor boxes!

 The Mom's last name is Flowers -  Isn't she clever!?

The loops to hang the banner are slip knots so that they can be adjusted as needed.

NSD - Challenge #12

Challenge #12--Make a Scrapbook Page, Card, or other with a Kid's theme!  
I am now officially in a creative coma. My husband found me pouting in front of my closet because I couldn't think of anything with a kid theme.. ha ha.  But then I remembered this paper I bought at my local craft store that basically had all the work done for me.  I pulled out two pictures of my nephew from his first communion, added a big flower and a button, did some journaling and added a metal cross accent and three gold brads.  Fastest page EVER!
There is no manufacturer listed on the paper, so I don't know who makes it. Even the brown ribbon accent is part of the paper. The rest was from my various accent stashes. I know I need to get better and keeping track of the manufacturers. The problem is, unless I bought it within the last six months, it's been removed from the packaging for organization/storage purposes.
I hope you all had fun today!  Don't forget you can still do the challenges if you'd like - and make sure to join Robyn at www.mypinkstamper.com at 10:00 CST for her live webcast.
Kim G.

NSD - Challenge #11

Challenge #11--Make a project and use Pink, Green and Black in it!
I just love that Robyn chose my favorite colors to work with! Though if I hadn't been running a bit behind in trying to stick with one hour, I probably would have done more with this card. I want to give props to my sister Kristi for the idea of the fibers to outline one of the layers. I've seen her do it a few times on some of her projects and loved the results.
I used Nifty Fifties (my new favorite), and the paper, of course, is from the scrap bin. The pink fibers are from EK Success, and the pink pearls from want2scrap.
ONE MORE TO GO!! If you haven't already, come join Robyn and her design team at www.mypinkstamper.com.  Don't forget her live webcast at 10:00 CST.
Kim G

NSD - Challenge #10

Challenge #10--Make a layout or card with a pet in it!
Stop by www.mypinkstamper.com and join in! Lots of prizes!! Robyn has outdone herself!
I'm not a pet person. There, I said it. I've had pets before and I loved them, but as I got older I realized I don't want the responsibility of a pet. Though, if I had a ton of land and a great deal of free time, I would get a border collie. They're SO cute!  The pet theme wasn't my favorite - but I grabbed the Create-a-Critter cartridge and remembered when I once was obsessed with koala bears. I know as pets they're illegal - but the challenge didn't say it had to be a REAL pet!  Pets are supposed to be lovable right? And how lovable is this little guy?
The papers again, are from my scrap bin. The silver ribbon is from Offray, and the sentiment...you guess it...Papertrey Ink.
Off to Challenge #11!
Kim G.

NSD - Challenge #9

Challenge #9--Use Glitz, Glam and Glitter in your project!
I am all about glitz! If in doubt, bling it out!! And what's more worthy of bling than Vegas? There's more bling and glam on this page than...well...there's a lot!  ha ha ha!!
I don't think the red card stock was captured in the photo to show how red it really is. Think patent leather red - with the same texture! I love, love, love this paper. Unfortunately, there is no manufacturer listed on the back. I just remember buying it at the last Scrapbook Expo. All of the gems around the pictures and ticket stub are from want2scrap. The silver star mirror card stock is from Worldwin.
Three more challenges to go! Come join us at www.mypinkstamper.com!
Kim G

NSD - Challenge #8

Challenge #8--Make a summer themed project!
Summer! Now that's a theme I can get behind! There isn't too much I don't like about summer - except maybe the fact that I don't get three months off like we did when we were kids....
Don't forget to take a look at all the challenges and join in the fun!  www.mypinkstamer.com.  Robyn has a live broadcast tonight at 10:00 CST too.
I was starting to get a creative block, so thinking "summer", I grabbed the Life's a Beach cartridge and randomly chose a cut and stuck with it.  This card is 6" x 4.5". The papers again are all from the scrap bin, and the face on the sun is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used my Gypsy to hide the face cuts on the image so I could use the stamp. The new face is so much cuter! The image was cut twice so I could layer the two colors together.
On to Challenge #9...  Enjoy!
Kim G

NSD - Challenge #7

Challenge #7--Make a Scrapbook Page!

Whew - 7 down, 5 more to go!  I hope I make it! Once again - if you want to join in the fun, check out http://www.mypinkstamper.com/!  There's still plenty of time!
My page is unique for me in that it's from 2010.  Only one year ago. Amazing since I'm still working on 2007! I recently received the Nifty Fifties cartridge, and when I saw the martini glass, I knew I would eventually use it when I scrapped this event.
The papers are from DCWV and various scraps. The martini glass was cut on velum from the Nifty Fifties cartridge, and the title was cut from Cuttin' Up. The red bling was from an unmarked package (I'm sure it was marked once upon a time). I have the journaling tucked behind the main picture.
The party? Well, the official name was the Wii-tini and Lounge Pant Extravaganza. It started out as a martini tasting party and wii-bowling tournament. Somehow we ended up adding the lounge pant aspect. Everyone had to wear their loudest lounge pants. We want to do this again with a different tasting, but so far no names have been mentioned that rival Wii-tini.   ..... I'm open to suggestions!  :-)
Kim G

NSD - Challenge #6

Challenge #6--Incorporate a TAG into your project!

Okay - so I really challenged myself this time. I have always wanted to try a step card, and the one you can see HERE convinced me that today was the day. It's a challenge day after all!  Don't forget to check out Robyn's National Scrapbook Day celebration at www.mypinkstamper.com!

All of the papers used are from SEI's Chocolat collection.  It's a few years old, but even though I use the kit quite a bit, I never seem to run out of the papers in it.  The mirror card stock is from Worldwin papers. And, of course, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. All of the cuts are from the Forever Young cartridge.


Kim G

NSD - Challenge #5

Challenge #5- Any 3-D item OR if that is too much of a challenge then add a 3-D item on your scrapbook page or card!
Yikes! I'm getting a little behind in the photos.  Sure wish time at work went by this fast!!!  If you haven't joined in the fun yet, you need to!  Go to www.mypinkstamper.com to see what's next. Missed a challenge or want to try one of the previous ones? You can find them all on her website.
This is a little gift basket for a friend of mine (so if you're watching this -you-know-who-you-are- this isn't your entire gift!  ha ha ha.  It will eventually hold little travel-sized bottles of baby lotions and such, but since I don't have any of that around my house, I just grabbed what I had to show the idea. 
Papers are all from Stampin Up!, gems are from want2scrap, sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and the adorable stamped face is from Peachy Keen Stamps. The template for the box was copied from a magazine quite some time ago and I no longer remember which one, but it most likely was Paper Crafts.


Kim G

NSD - Challenge #4

Challenge #4:  Make something with a Mother's Day Theme!

I was hoping this would be one of the challenges today since I had yet to make cards for my mom and mother-in-law. I had an idea in my head last night of what I wanted to do, so I saved some time by not having to spend the bulk of this hour coming up with something. My sister is the one who got the instant creativity gene. Good thing I had a plan, because it took a few tries on the cage as the paper ripped on me twice!

All scraps! I didn't have the label for the roses anymore, but they have been with me for years and years waiting for the right project. The cage is from the Sentimentals cartridge and the sentiments are from Papertrey Ink. (There's that Martha Stewart lace punch again!)


Kim G

NDS Challenge #3

Challenge #3--Make a card, scrapbook page, or 3-D item with a breast cancer theme.  You can use a ribbon, make it pink, whatever you'd like.
Join the fun on http://www.mypinkstamper.com/ !

So once again, my scrap bin to the rescue. I started out wanting to make one of those rosettes with a flower in the middle.  After I made the first half I realized I liked the fan too much to continue making the other half of the rosette!  Don't you just love "happy accidents"? They tend to make up A LOT of my projects lately.
I don't have any of Robyn's stamp sets (YET), so I took two Papertrey Ink sets to make the Celebrate You sentiment. The punch is one of Martha Stewart's. I resisted buying her stuff initially, but now I am hooked on her around the page punches.

Kim G

NDS - Challenge #2

Whew! This day is going to go by SO fast!!  I needed to do something quick since I spent too much time last hour trying to figure out what to do. I had this layout in mind, so it was easy to pick papers based on the challenge requirements.  Want to play along?  Go to www.mypinkstamper.com  Robyn has a new challenge every hour today - and you could win some great prizes!!

Challenge #2 was to make a project using Kraft card stock.  I've had a couple pieces of this for quite some time but didn't know what to do with it. A piece of the checkerboard patterned paper fell out of my scrap box when I was looking for something entirely different - and wah-la! an idea was born.  Umm....this also shows you how far behind I am in my scrapping......four years!!!!  I tend to focus on my travel scrapbooks a lot and my normal life photos suffer in limbo.  But hey - at least my vacations are up to date!


Kim G

National Scrapbook Day - Challenge #1

Good Morning!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!!  I am so excited as this is my first time participating with My Pink Stamper's all day challenge event - I hope I can make it through all 12 hourly challenges.  I started a few minutes late, so I'm already stressed - but it's a fun stress! 

Want to play along?  Go to www.mypinkstamper.com . You'll find a new challenge every hour - and each entry to her challenges gives you a chance to win a Cricut Imagine!  WOW!  Plus, there are hourly prizes as well.

The first challenge is to make anything with a cupcake.  This was right up my ally since I LOVE CUPCAKES!!!  :-)

I used the Sweet Treats and Create-A-Critter cartridges as well as scraps from my scrap pile. I hope to use up a lot of my scraps today. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  (The inside says...Let's Pig Out)

Paper Doll House - You've Gotta Go!

Hi there!

This weekend, my sister Kristi and I went to the Paper Doll House in Sycamore, Illinois. The PDH is a super wonderful scrapbook retreat that I couldn't recommend more if I were a paid spokesperson! If you're looking for a great, relaxing place to get away and enjoy some uninterrupted crafting time, this is the place you need to go. From the moment I walked into the House, I felt welcomed and right at home. Actually better than "right at home" because I never had to cook, do dishes, or even pick up after myself. My car was unloaded and my stuff waiting at my workstation before the super-sweet owner Mary Kim finished giving us the tour.

The house itself has a rich and interesting history, which Mary Kim and Sheila were sweet enough to explain to us before we left. There is so much detail and many beautiful antiques that something new always catches your eye.

The large craftroom offers tons of space for each crafter and plenty of room for you to get organized so you don't waste time searching for things in your bags all weekend. Oh! And tons of extra lighting so even at 1:00 in the morning, you can still tell blush pink cardstock from barely pink cardstock. Plus, you have use of all their punches, scissors, cutting machines and more! It seems no detail is overlooked.

Food is always important when you're power crafting.  And Mary Kim has you covered here too. Each meal is home cooked right there on sight - and it is Fantastic!!!  I'm really going to miss the food tomorrow when I have to resume cooking at my house.

If you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable and welcoming place to craft and be pampered - book your stay now!!!  Click here to go to the Paper Doll Website.
