Project One Hundred Two

Hello Again!

I am showing a super cute card I created just in the nick of time for DCWV Diary Blog
August card sketch challenge. Yes, it is due today. I did say in the nick of time right.

Here is the sketch we were given.

Here is my take on it.
OK so all the paper is DCWV
the solid is from their solid paper stacks
The pattern paper is from The Midnight Spell Stack.
I cut the word Boo using Cricut Cartridge When I Was A Kid
The sentiment came with the stack, I love when thy have these.
I just added some black glitter to the cute little spider.
Thanks for visiting
Have a Magical Day!

Project One Hundred One

Welcome Back.
We all have our favorite products. Today I will play with my all time favorite pattern papers,
DCWV (Die Cuts With a View). They are really my go to pattern paper.
Well the have a monthly sketch challenge on their blog DCVW Blog.
They have a Layout Challenge and a Card Challenge. I usually enter both, or I try.
They choose their top 15 picks from the entries, then from the top 15 of each category
they randomly choose one winner from each. That person wins PAPER! I won one month and
received almost $80.00 in retail product. I was so excited!!
Ok so here is the sketch for this month's layout.
Here is what I did with it.
SO I used of course I used DCWV paper. The stack I used was the Citrus Stack, which by the way was one of the stacks I received for free!! The solid paper background for the photo's is DCWV also, from the colored paper collections. I cut all the papers and photos with my paper cutter except the circles. The circles are cut with my Cricut using Cricut Craft Room Basics. All the sentiments are from the same stack. I did a bit of journaling about the pictures. These were taken back in 2012. This was our girls first visit to an Ocean. We were at Hollywood Beach in Florida. We all had such a great time. 
I used Stampin Up ink to ink the edges. I used Marina Mist, Old Olive and Real Red.
You still have a few days to enter, so join in!

Have a Magical Day!

I started my blog to share how much fun I had crafting.
I encourage everyone to have a blog. It's a great way to share
your crafting experiences.

I have been learning how to use my Copic markers these
past few months. So I had a blast working with my favorite
stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps.

OK so the base is 4.25 x 5.5 inches on Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant
The pattern is K&C Company Halloween stack at 4 x 5.25 inches
The green is also from K&C Company cut at 3.75 x 5 inches

The Stamps are from Peachy Keen
The candy corn is PK-647 Faceless Fall Fun
The sentiment is PKSC-32 August 2014

I used pop dots to raise some of the candy levels.
PS This is my all time favorite candy!!

Project Ninety-nine

Welcome Back!!

Today's Project I am finishing with just hours to spare on this challenge.
I recently discovered, with in the last two months, Jaded Blossom Stamps. They have the cutest
stamps for candies to make party favors.

For their August Monthly challenge it was crafter's choice,
which in Mouse Land, means HALLOWEEN!!

So I used their Halloween Candies stamps. They are super cute.
Here is what I came up with.


I took a cute little metal pail, dollar section of Target.

Added my favorite kisses and used the Candy Stamps.
I added a ghost with a Trick or Treat bag.

I am thinking of making more of these for our Homeschool Coop Halloween party as center pieces. I love this!!

Have a Magical Day!

Project Ninety-eight

Welcome Back!

So I have been having so much fun with my Copic Markers.
I have been just loving them. My poor hubby!

I have been asked what I had to invest to get a base line of colors.
So I went to Dick Blick Art Supplies. If you spend more than $99.00 you get
free shipping. So I bought 21 markers for about 110.00 I made a decision to basically buy
4 markers a month. If I have a Michael's coupon for 40% of 50% off, I will look there first.
If not I order my 4 Markers at Blick's and it cost me around $32.00 with shipping. I really spent time looking around Pintrest and You Tube looking at all the base color suggestions out there. I am
working on skin tones and hair colors now.

OK so on to today's projects. It is for Peachy Keen Stamps Monthly Linky Party.
The rules are to use Stamps from the August release. I loved their release because
it was all about HALLOWEEN!!

So for this I used the following Peachy Keen Stamps
PK-1417 Faceless Zombie Kids 1
     are my Zombie kids
PK-1420 Trio of Girl Ghosts
     are my sentiments .... and I love them to pieces
PK-1419 Cranky Franky
     is my boy Zombie's face
PK-1300 Sweet Innocent Face Assortment
     is my Girl Zombie's Face

I think I used almost all my Copic Colors.
You have until the end of August to enter, the more the Merrier!
