Kitty Bee DT Spotlight

Thanks for joining me today! This is a card I think we can all relate to-
Ever had one of those days (or weeks, or month!) where everything you touch goes wrong? Me too! This image is "Sewing Kit" and shows exactly what happened when I tried to sew this month! The stitching on the card is real and I finally got the machine to sew.
Here is a list of materials-
  1. Kitty Bee Designs-Sewing Kit, colored with Prismacolor pencils.
  2. Paper is from Crate Paper-DIY Shop.
  3. Sentiment is from Creative Vision. Rangers Antique Linen for distressing.
  4. Spellbinders dies.
  5. Sewing machine, gold thread.
Thank you for joining me today!

JAS Birthday Tags

At Just A Scrappin', the challenge was to make a birthday tag. Here is mine-

I got the tag itself in a goodie bag from Unity Stamps, which is also where the stamped image is from. The sentiment was colored with White Bistro Marker and colored pencil, and pink metal bling was added to the banner. The flower was from a blog hop prize so I have no idea who made it, and the ribbon is from my stash.

I do have a ton of June birthdays to plan for, so this will definitely get used!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Cake challenge

This week at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers the challenge to make a cake card, so here is my take on what one is!

This was pretty fun! This is a Unity Stamp Itty Bitty set called "Damn you're old". The sentiment on the envelope was stamped with Versamark ink and I used white embossing powder. The tag was stamped with black Memento ink with clear embossing powder. Ribbon is from my stash. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the cake. I thought it was funny to count the flames as I colored them, not so funny when I'm the same age as the number of candles!

Oh, am I glad to be back at the Sisterhood!

JAS Mother's Day

This week at Just A Scrappin' we were challenged to make a Mother's Day project, and here is my card-

The card is from Thinking of You Tri-Shutter card file from, and I used black cardstock, pink DCWV shimmer paper, white rose paper, Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Rose folder, Cricut Mother's Day 2010 cartridge, and unknown white glossy patterned paper (rose front). I substituted the "Thinking of You" sentiment with the "Happy Mother's Day" cut-remember you don't have to use everything in a file. Instead of the rose on the front, I can put any Cricut image there also!

Thanks for joining me today!

JAS Mosaic

This week the challenge is Mosaic, and I can tell right now that this isn't my thing! Here is my project-

The stamp I used is a very old wood mounted stamp from PSX (1995!) That I colored with colored pencils then cut up into squares, reassembling the picture onto black cardstock. The "frame" is a medium teal embossed with wood grain, and mounted onto My Minds Eye damask paper.

What do you think?
