Paying It Forward






 Hello Everyone,

This is for my blogger friend Amanda. She was on the first person to make a comment on my pay it forward post about 6 week ago. I am suppose to make something handmade for the first five people that leave a comment and accept the challenge to do the same.  They are to then post the "Pay It Forward " information on their blog and do the same. I still have 4 spots available lady and it is really not that hard. So hurry up and leave a comment, so that I can make you something. I have linked the information in this post so that you can ready the instruction before leaving a comment. So that you can decide if this is something you might want to do. So until next time....

CTO Challenge #23




Hello Everyone,
Welcome to the CTO Challenge #23. My project for this week is a napkin fold card. The requirements for this week challenge is something blue and white. This is my first time making this type of card and since we are celebrating Christmas in July, I felt this card would be great for this week's challenge. I have to admit that I struggled a bit with the color scheme. But I feel like it eventually came together....well enough about that.  Please join me and the CTO Design Team on this week challenge and let us see what you can do. Remember to use only blue and white. But you can make what ever you like. So until next time....

Welcome to the "Christmas in July" Blog Hop hosted by Jazzy from Jazzy's Cards. If you are coming from Vicki then you are in the right place, but if you are just checking on my blog and stumbled across this, go start at the beginning. This is Jazzy's first time hosting a hop, and I know she would appreciate the love.
The theme for the hop was something Christmas related that included the colors green and red. This is what I came up with...

Sweet & Sassy




Hello Everyone,

I have another project were I actually used another one of my circuit cartridges that I have never used before. I really think I am going to like my cartridge exploration. This came form Elegant Edges. I really like this one. It could potentially save you  and me a lot of money. Instead of buying all those  punch and nestability for basic shapes and curves, this on has everything including borders. How awesome is that.  But back to the layout, it  is my daughter when she was 4 years old. She at very young age (3) starting with her sassiness and has been doing every since.  So I think this title was fitting for her. Because she can be the sweetness thing (sometimes) but sassy too!! So until next time.....

Hey You Guys, 
I have two quick cards that I made for a card swap that I am doing next week. I really didn't do anything fancy but I still like the way they turned out. And since the swap is  a Christmas theme, I thought the paper was perfect for that. I have a few more to make and I want them all to be different.  Also I would like to thank Pam & Amanda for my "Stinkin' Cute and Sweet Blog awards. You ladies rock.!  If you guys get chance please check out their blogs, they really are very talented.  So until next time....

I"m on M.A.G Design Team



Hello Everyone, 
I have some great news to share. I was chosen to be apart of the M.A. G. Design Team. I couldn't believe it. I was in disbelief but I pinched myself and it was real. I am so excited and hope you guys stop by and participant in our weekly challenges. What makes M.A.G. Challenge by Page so awesome is that you are given an specific  page number from a Cricut cartridge handbook.   You are to use that as your design inspiration.  You are free to create anything. So the sky is the limit ladies.  BUT you can only use the die cuts from that particular page. You can embellish you project with other embellishment in your stash. BUT no other die cut from any other Circut cartridge pages. Enough about this stuff and on to my latest creation.  So in this card, I used Simply Charmed page 39. 

My Recipe:
Simply Charm Cricut Cartridge pg 39
Moss Green Cardstock ( I can't remember the brand name)
White Texturized Cardstock ( Paper Studio)
Hot Pink Cardstock
Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder
Pink Bling
White Gel Pen
Red Pattern Paper
Ribbon ( Hobby Lobby)
Dolly ( Wilton's)
3-D Pop dots
Adhesive

So please join in on the fun challenges and don't worry if you don't have the Cricut cartridge for this weeks challenge, check back next week for another great challenge. So until next time....

Have A Scrappy Day!!
