Cutting it Close!

Welcome to 2020 and the challenges that H2H are doing! I missed last week’s challenge, but I’m back in the saddle with this one! This week’s challenge is all about cutting things close! You can fussy cut, cricut cut, or like me, use some die cuts!

This was the fun candy treat that my crop ladies got at the last crop. They were super simple to put together, some random stamping, and coloring!

I just cut my paper to be the same width as my cello bag, and created a bottom and backing for it. Then used some B&T to make the top pretty too!

I die cut and stamped my images. Then I used our water colors to paint each of the flowers. Then some of the flowers were colored again with a shimmer brush. Then, I stamped each of the die cuts again, so that the outlines were nice and brisk!

Isn’t it so pretty?? I love how it turned out!

Here are the things that I used:
White Daisy Cardstock
Spruced Up Cardmaking Workshop stamp & Die
Mix In Paper Packet
Water brush
Archival Black Ink
Canary Ink
Eggplant Ink
Charcoal Ink

Thanks for stopping by! Now, head over to the H2H challenge blog and see what some of the other ladies have got to show you, and maybe even consider playing along!

Let’s Make a Box!

Danielle and I are at it again! Today’s challenge is to make a box! We decided to go with the same tutorial, and see how it comes out! So, we are using this tutorial.

This creates a box that is 6 inches by 6 inches! (Well, on the outside!) The inside box is 4 inches square and 3 inches tall. You can fit quite a things into this not so little box! Now, there is one correction to the video that I found when I was making mine. The first measurement that she gives is that you need two sheets of card(stock) that are 6 x 3. However, that measurement should be 6 x 9.

This box does use 2 sheets of cardstock (before decorating), and 2 sheets of B & T paper. If you also do the inside of the box, you will use a bit more than that. I did choose to not cover the inside of the box. I used Celebrate Today and the Mix In paper packets for this fun box! Don’t you just love how well the paper packets go together?

If you use liquid glass instead of a tape runner, you will have a bit more of a sturdy box. I ran out of the bottle that I was using when I was putting the box together!

I decided to top the box with a fun title and some flowers. Then I added some greenery and flowers along the front inside right corner. I used colors from the paper packet, Raspberry, Lagoon, Nectarine, Evergreen, and Mink.

Here is the design space link for the flowers and title for this box! You will need to have these cartridges to cut for free, or you can purchase the individual files through your design space: Flower Market, You Are Here, and Art Philosophy.

This box is really easy to put together! I think you should try it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember to check out Danielle’s box too, her’s is super cute! Let us know if you decide to make the box! We would love to see!

Until next time!

Happy Birthday with Craft On

If you watched my Facebook live on Sunday, you heard that I haven’t had a chance to do much crafting this last week! Well, I decided that I would participate in a few challenge blogs! So, I came up with this card fairly quickly, since I was using the sketch from Case This Sketch #330, and I went with the AAA Birthday challenge of ‘for the girls’. Their challenge blog is ALL about birthdays! It is such a great blog to go and check out! You will find ALL sorts of ideas for birthday cards! I decided to round it off with Time Out Challenge’s prompt this fortnight, which was a prose from Oscar Wilde. “With Freedom, Flowers, and the Moon, who could NOT be happy?” Hence the flowers from the Craft On paper pack! I was also going to play along with another challenge, but I missed part of it, but that’s ok, I still like how this card turned out!

I used the shaker thin cuts for both the circle and the frame, the shaker window foam and acetate for the shaker part, and I filled it with bits and pieces from the gold sequin mix, and a few of the smaller pearls. I used the happy birthday sentiment from the Hippo-Partymus stamp set stamped in Archival Black ink.

I hope you like my little card! It went together very quickly! Plus, I have found a few fun challenge blogs to play along with! I would love it if you left a little note to let me know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Picture My Life Hop

Welcome to another blog hop! Today we are sharing more about Picture My Life Cards! Today you should have come from Darlys’ Blog. If not, that’s ok, it’s a big circle, and you will get back around to her!

If you were around earlier this week, I shared a layout using a PML card from the Stargazer papers. You can see that here. Today I am showing another layout with PML cards! I LOVE to stretch my papers as much as I can, and I know that my crafty ladies love it too! (in fact, they have teased me if I use a 12″ strip that is covered by multiple things!)

See this fun striped banner? It is one of the PML cards that are printed and with the Chelsea Gardens paper pack! I LOVE this striped paper! When you tuck the pieces in under other pieces, you can totally make it look like a bigger piece of paper than it is!

The next couple of photos aren’t of PML cards, but I really LOVE how they turned out, so I had to add a close up of them for you!

This last one uses our vellum paper! It is such a soft look, but it stands out so much at the same time!

I hope you have liked my page! I would LOVE to see what YOU have done with your PML cards! Come over and join my FB group, and share your PML card creations!

Now, hop on over to Kathy’s blog and see what fun stuff she has for you!

I look forward to seeing you again soon!!
