Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Life's A Beach

This was really a fun challenge as I absolutely love everything about the beach; it was hard to choose which images to use .... this is such a cute cartridge.  I chose the palm tree and hula girl ... reminds me of Maui.

Anyway, I used random cardstock scraps.  The blue background was embossed with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirl folder.  I added Liquid Pearls to the lei and flower.  For the sand I used one of the neatest products ever ... it is real sand by MuddPuddles.  You spread it on wet ... kind of a glue-like consistency and it dries awesomely ... does not flake off at all.  The hula girl's face was stamped with the tiniest size of Peachy Keen's "Funshine Face Assortment."  The sentiment is from the "Summer Vacation" set by Pink By Design.  I am definitely going to be ordering the new one from Scrappy Moms though ... like I said I love the beach and anything summery ... it is one cute set!

- Life's A Beach (hula girl, palm tree)
- Everyday Paper Dolls (sand)
- Peachy Keen (Funshine Face Assortment) stamp set
- Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder
- Pink by Design "Summer Vacation" sentiment
- Liquid Pearls in "petal pink" and MuddPuddles in "Malibu Beach"

Throwback Thursday challenge at My Creative Time

This card is for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge at "My Creative Time".  She is giving away a set of all 4 of her AWESOME stamps that are coming out this Friday .... can't wait to see them.

My First Challenge!

Almost missed this deadline, but wanted to post something for the Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  This week's challenge was to use Cricut's "Once Upon a Princess" cartridge.  I chose the cute little castle cut and paired it with the banner from the "Twinkle Toes" cartridge.  I didn't have any "princessy" stamps to use but I do ADORE the new Scrappy Mom's "Happily Ever After" sentiment set.  

- Once Upon a Princess (castle)
- Twinkle Toes (banner)
- Imaginsce (printed paper)
- My Pink Stamper (sentiment)
- Paper Trey Ink (cardstock)

Welcome to my blog!

I am very new to this whole blogging thing, so please bear with me.  I have a ton to figure out yet, but thought I'd give it a try since I love seeing everyone else's crafty little blogs.  Here's one of the cards I made this weekend.  

It features the adorable Peachy Keen CottageCutz Duck Die and accessories.  Isn't she just the cutest?  Printed paper is by K & Company "Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse" pad.  Card stock is by Paper Trey Ink.  Used Cuttlebug "Spots & Dots" embossing folder and twine by "The Twinery" in Caribbean.  My sentiment is cut from Cricut "Once Upon a Princess" cart and the cute sentiment is from Pink By Design's "Summer Vacation" stamp set.  I used Stickles Fruit Punch on the little innertube and Waterfall on the water splashes.

Thanks for stopping by!
