Washi Love

Happy weekend, everyone! I hope that you're having a good weekend so far! I think that I am coming down with a cold, so I am hoping that will go away soon! It would be a much better weekend without the cold, and without work this morning, but it will still be a good one! :)

I have a card to share with you for the current Moxie Fab Challenge - the stickers and tape challenge!

I made a card similar to this one before (you can see that card here), but I recently bought some new washi tape colors so I decided to make another one! I like how easy it is to make a card with washi tape, especially a colorful one! The washi tapes are from various companies (Recollections and some brand that I found at Target). The letters and hearts are from Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" stamp and die and "Trim the Tree" respectively. I'm not sure which set the small hearts are from, but it is definitely from a Lawn Fawn set. :)

Well, thanks for stopping by! I need to go finish laundry now! :)

Hello Friend!

Hi everyone! I hope that you had a good weekend! We had a very productive weekend here. Our new washer and dryer were finally delivered so we did some laundry, we reorganized a little bit in our basement, and we set up some furniture in our extra bedroom. Plus, we spent a bunch of time with family, so it was a great weekend. :)

I have a fun card to share with you this evening! I made this card over the weekend for one of the current Moxie Fab World challenges- incorporating ready-made embellishments!

This card features products from the Pebbles "Lakeside" collection. I covered the card base with a super cute patterned paper (it's so colorful!) and attached one of the journaling cards. I took the flower chipboard, tied some white ribbon around it, and attached it to the journaling card. The four paper strips are extra pieces of patterned paper from the top of the 6x6 paper pads, and they are attached with staples!

If you get a chance, you should definitely play along with this challenge! Using ready-made embellishments make for some really quick cards! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you have a great week!

Lawnscaping #66 - Monochromatic

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! It's time again for the next Lawnscaping Challenge!

This week's challenge is to create a card based on only one color. I decided to pick the color orange for my card. Here it is:

The bunny in the pumpkin from the "Critters in Costume" stamp set is adorable, so he had to be the star of this card. I also added the pumpkins and sentiment from the "So Thankful" set, as well as the speech bubble from "A Birdie Told Me." The sequins are from Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love mixed sequins set. The sequins are such a fun little accent to add to cards! :)

The winner of this week's challenge will win a stamp set of their choice from Lawn Fawn, so don't forget to play along! I can't wait to see what you create with this challenge! :)

I hope that you have a great Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

10 Minute Craft Dash #25

Hi there! I'm so glad that it is Wednesday because it means that the weekend is almost here! Woo! :)

I have a card to share with you for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash! I have not had much time to play along with challenges lately, but I was able to find some time this week!

The challenge this week is to create a card using the provided colors and to create the card in under 10 minutes! That is a challenge!

When I saw the inspiration colors, I immediately thought of sunflowers! (Can you tell that I like that new Lawn Fawn stamp set?!) :)

Here is the card that I created and it took 8 minutes 20 seconds. This card features Lawn Fawn's "Our Friendship Grows," and "Woodgrain Backdrops" (you can tell that I tried to make this quickly- I messed up the woodgrain stamp!). The hearts are from the "Stitched Journaling Card" dies and I also used the silver sparkle twine. 

If you have some time, you should definitely play along with the current 10 Minute Craft Dash! There are still a few days to play along! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Kelly's Birthday Blog Hop!!

Hi everyone! Today is a special day because it's Kelly Marie's birthday! Happy Birthday!! The Lawn Fawn girls decided to organize and surprise her with a birthday party blog hop! You should have arrived here from Paulina's blog! If you get lost at any point you can start at the beginning on Tiffany's blog!

Since Kelly Marie is a fan of sunflowers, and since Lawn Fawn just released an adorable sunflower set and die, I decided to send her some flowers on her birthday!

 This card features a few of the new Lawn Fawn products! The patterned paper is from the "Peace Joy Love" petite paper pack (who says it just has to be for Christmas!). The flowers, heart, and pot is from the "Our Friendship Grows" stamp set and the sentiment is "Riley's ABCs." I also added some silver sparkle twine around the flower stems and some stickles to the heart and center of the flowers.

Well, I hope that everyone, especially Kelly Marie, enjoyed our little blog hop! The next stop is the talented Vicki Papaioannou! :)

Wanna Sketch No. 8

Happy Saturday! Whew, we made it to the weekend! Today we are enjoying some cooler, fall weather complete with a football game and some relaxing. Plus I was able to take a nap today, so it's been a good day so far! :)

I recently came across a sketch challenge at Dahlhouse Design's blog. I thought the sketch so was cute, so I had to play along. Here is the sketch:


And here is the card that I created based on this sketch:

My husband and I are celebrating our four year anniversary later this month, so this is the card that he is giving to me (yes, he has me make my own cards.) This card features some of Lawn Fawn's new releases including "Into the Woods" stamp set and "Stitched Journaling Card" die set. It also features "Happy Everything" and "Sweet Christmas" stamp sets . I stamped the cute little foxes onto colored and white paper, and then paper pieced them together. I also had to do some mirror stamping for the girl fox. I finished the card with a cute bow tie and hair bow! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! :)

Lawnscaping #65 - My Favorite Things!

Happy Labor Day everyone!! Do you get to enjoy a day off from work today? I hope so! :)

We're back again with another Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge is to create a card using your favorite things!


 For this challenge, I created a birthday tag set! :)

 My favorite things are to use Lawn Fawn products, and especially the cute critter sets! "Critters in the Forest" is an older set, but it's a new one for me, so I am having fun playing with it! These tags also feature "Year Three" stamp set, as well as one of Lawn Fawn's new releases - "Winter Gifts" stamps and "Tag, You're It" dies. The tag dies make it so easy to create tags - perfect for Christmas!

The winner of the challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp, so don't forget to play along! :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great week! :)
