A little birthday tag for Artful Delight

Challenge #2 at Artful Delight is to create a project based on Tic Tac Toe..

I decided to go with a slanted line for my tic tac toe win-- use kraft, include at least one button, and light pink! I made a birthday tag for my coworker using the Tim Holtz Sizzix die with Recollections Kraft paper, stamped with The Girl's Paperie stamp set added a little blign to the banner, some Maya Road embellies (Light Pink gingham flower with a Button and a trinket pin). I added a little strip of Tim Holtz tissue tape and misted with Calico White Mister Huey and added a few drops of Cotton Candy Metallic Maya Mist. Oh and the dress form was cut with Tim Holtz die too! Easy Peasy! Happy to have completed all of the challenges for Artful Delight blog hop challenge!

Oh, and just FYI  I plan to have a giveaway next week, so if you just stopped by please come back again next week too....I'm thinking there might be some Crate Paper given away...I'm just sayin'.....heehee...have a great weekend!

Giggle...A sweet little card with Delightful Inspiration

I am rockin' along with my 90 day plan to exercise and eat better. Of course, this is only day 3, but hey...for a girl like me this is awesome! LOL! I think I may include 90 days of scrapping too, because I'm actually settling into a routine (well 2 days) of eating dinner early, exercising, and scrapping, and then going to bed at least an hour earlier than my usual late night nonsense!
Well, anyway, I made this little card for Artful Delight's Blog Hop Celebration Day 3 Color Challenge- kraft, pink, and white

I used my favorite Jenni Bowlin butterfly stamp and chipboard butterfly with Party Pink Recollections embossing powder. I also used chipboard pieces from Bella Blvd and Me & My Big Ideas. The little scrap of paper is Crate Paper and a doilie from my stash. Oh, the card is just a piece of kraft that I misted with calico white Mister Huey and inked the edges. Ok, so I'm feeling good and will hopefully start and complete challenge #2 tonight too!

A Spooky Little Layout with Artful Delight

So, I had major plans to get an epic amount of scrapping done and participate in challenges last weekend. Well, let's just say that plan was an Epic Fail!!! Anyway, I did do a lot of blog hopping and found some fun sites. One of them is Artful Delight! They hosted a very inspiring three day blog hop and have three challenges that are still open until the 30th, so if you have some free time this week check them out and play along!

This spooky little layout is for Challenge #1 - sketch challenge. I have been in a very fall/halloweenish mood and was happy to scrap this picture of my little goblin that has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks since I found it during my scrap space clean up (which is still in progress). I used a variety of items for this layout some old and some new.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey- Max and Whiskers, Echo Park- Apothecary, Tim Holtz-Halloween Haunts; Stickers and Rubons: Echo Park, Making Memories,Sassafrass; Mist and Twine: Studio Calico

Ok, I have a few more things I want to accomplish before Friday....let's see if I can do a LOAD this week or at least a couple of cards and tags! Hopefully, I'll be back with another challenge post tomorrow!
