hop hop hop!


Can you believe that Easter is next weekend?  I can't wait!  Today I've got a quick post, a hybrid card made with the Creashens Hopalong kit.  Everything is a part of the kit except the sentiment which is computer generated using the Lunchbox font.

Thanks for stopping by.

Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Time for another Technique Tuesday Studio AE Blog Hop!

Today we're featuring the April 2014 stamp set, Good Times

I made a layout for today's hop

 I heat embossed the Today Rocks stamp from the Studio AE April set to give it a little extra pop!  I've also got stamps from Right Here Flair and the Straight Talk Hello die.  And, I used a sketch from April 2014 Pagemaps.

There are a few more stops on the hop:

And we're giving away a $25 e-card to the Technique Tuesday Store.  The winner will be drawn from comments and announced 4/15 on the Technique Tuesday blog.

April Storyteller

Happy Sunday!  Today I've got a few things made with the April Storyteller kit from Just Jaimee.  This first one, the card, you might notice has an ampersand and veneers.  This was a recent submission to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking's October call that didn't get picked up.  The ampersand and "filling" are part of an alpha set included in the kit and so it the digital painted dots, then I just computer generated the rest of the sentiment and added the veneer potty people.

And here is a digi scrapped layout.  Jaimee didn't even know that we were learning to knit with orange yarn when she designed this kit!

And this is something new, a digital magazine!  Jaimee did a great job making this and it is pure eye candy.  If you have a few minutes to take a look you won't be sorry!

And just one more thing... if you have any interest in digital or hybrid I encourage you to sign up for Jaimee's Newsletter.  She offers deep discounts and freebies to newsletter subscribers that you won't want to miss!

Like a Boss


Today I've got a card up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.  True confession, this started out as my card for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 130 which is to use ovals.  I'm not sure what happened when I was making it but it finished up not looking very CAS/clean and simple so I decided not to use it for the challenge.  But I still like it and it's always nice to have another masculine card in the stash.

I used stamps from Lotsa Links and Rad.  The labels are from Chic Tags and I think they're retired.  They came with all of the browning.  All I did was stamp the sentiments and rough up the edges.  The links are stamped with Fresh Ink Mojito and then I added a few Studio Calico veneers and some Tiny Attacher staples.

Thanks for stopping by.

CFC130: Good Egg

Can you believe it's time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge?  Yay!

For CFC130 we're challenging you to use ovals in a clean and simple way.

Here is what I came up with.

I used Lotsa Links and Rad from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, and a die from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tiny Tags die set.  The cardstock is Soft Stone from Papertrey Ink and I've got some solid blue Divine Twine and inks from Memento and Fresh Ink.

So head on over to CAS-ual Fridays and check out the rest of the DT inspiration and details on the prizes.  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Project Life Week 43

This week we're featuring photos on the Technique Tuesday blog and I am up today with a Project Life page.

This is a week from last fall where I printed my photos and for whatever reason never put the page together.

So this picture of me wearing the cape and crown :)  My daughter is a high school freshman this year.  Her school has Senior Day, where the freshmen perform skits for the seniors who get to watch while wearing capes and crowns made for them by the freshmen.  So the senior that my daughter got paired up with said that she likes pink, purple, and cheetah prints.  We went to Joanns and found this totally perfect pink and purple cheetah fleece.  Phew!

To make this page I used cards from the Becky Higgins Kraft Project Life kit and a Becky Higgins F page.

And stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday:  Cool Tab Card Die; Story Card Die; That Arrow Card Die ; Studio AE March 2014 Wow stamps; Look at This; Explore Arrows; and Take Me Away

Dream Big


Today I've got a hybrid card made with Glitz digitals.  The Wild and Free digital papers and Wild and Free Elements 2 kits are on sale today at Jessica Sprague for One Buck Wednesday.  I took the dream catcher image from the Elements kit and super sized it, then added a computer generated sentiment using the Lunchbox font and some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by.
