Guest Designer For Scrappy Mom's Stamps!! :0)

For the CardzTV Challenge please click here. Hi Everyone!!!I am so thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for Scrappy Mom's Stamps. I think they have such cute little saying for their stamps and really make card making fun!!! It's so funny because a while back I was making a tent card and thought, hmmm I wish I had some circus themed stamps and then presto!! A few days later I got them in the mail from Scrappy Mom's and I pretty much did a back flip when I saw them because it was just what I was thinking of when I was creating my tent card. I created another tent card as well so that you could see how perfect they are with the Silhouette tent image. I also made a few more...ok LOTS more!! LOL I just went to town and had some many fun ideas running through my head. Another big trend this year is light bulbs and the sentiment that's on the Gone Buggy set is so perfect!!! My video will give more of a description and Cricut cut ideas as well for those of you that are using the Cricut. Be sure to check out Scrappy Mom's so that you can get your own sets of Gone Buggy and Life's a Circus.

Here's a video description of the card that I made:

A huge thank you to Scrappy Mom's for letting me be a guest designer today. I had so much fun and feel very blessed!!!

You've Got Mail Blog Hop!! :0)

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 2 of the You've Got Mail Blog Hop!! We are so excited to share with you our fun designs and ideas!!!
For my project, I used the Silhouette. For the base of the cards I used design ID# 26375(I stretched it out to 3x3) and for the shoes I used ID#13417( I can't remember the size, but I shrank it down until it fit the 3x3 card. I believe it was 2.5 inches). The box was also from the Silhouette which was design ID#29948. I stretched it out so that it was 3.5 inches so that it would hold my 3x3 cards.

Circus Tent Card and "Madagascar" like Zebra!

Hi Everyone! When I saw the adorable little zebra that was on the Silhouette website I knew I have to have it and pair it with the circus tent! I think that my nephew is going to just love it. If you would like to find them on the Silhouette you can type circus tent card and then chubby zebra to find the zebra. If you have a cricut, you can use the Create A Critter cartridge and it has a circus tent and lots of fun animals to choose from. :)

Flower Pot Mother's Day Card

Hi Everyone! Here's a card that I made using my Silhouette. When you pull out the card it says Happy Mother's Day. I am sending this to my sweet friend Sarah, liveloveandscrap. I remembered that I had little ladybug brads and used one on the card. I love how it turned out. I am going to enter this into the Peachy Keen Challenge to make a Mother's Day card.
Here's a video on how to make this card:

Creative Time For Me 3x3 Challenge

Hi Everyone! Emma from Creative Time For Me is having a 3x3 challenge so I decided to join in. My cards ended up being 3.5x 3.5 so I am sure that they will still count. :0) I used the Create a Critter Cartridge and cut the hippos out at 2.5 inches. I hid the eyes on my Gypsy so that I could add the googly eyes, but you can just stick the eyes over the small holes if you do not want to hid them. I also cut the grass at 1 inch. The cute sentiments are from Snail Mail and Good Times stamp set from CardzTV.

Thanks so much for watching! :0)

Maymaymadeit Challenge Card

Hi Everyone! I was asked my Jesse who is passion4crafting on Youtube if I would enter the challenge because she is on the maymaymadeit design team. I said sure because I think it's important to support other Youtubers and crafters alike. :0) The theme was Spring2Summer so this is what I came up with:
Both images are from my Silhouette. If you search under Summer Set for the sandals and Beach Umbrella and Sun for the umbrella and sum you will find them there. The cute sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps called A Day At The Beach. Here's a video of how to make this card:

There's No Other Like My Mother CardzTV #29 Challenge

Hi Everyone! Are you ready for another CardzTV Challenge?!! I went a little cray-cray with this one because I have quite a few Mother's Day cards to make, so I made 3. :0)  The stamp set that I used on all 3 was Happy Days.

Cardz TV Ch# 29 "There's No Other Like My Mother"
Make a card, layout or craft project for Mother's Day
Starts: May 3rd

Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:
The first one that you see is a Samantha Walker Scalloped Box from the Silhouette. The banner and house is from April Showers cut at 2 inches on the house and 1 inch on the banner. The fence is a Fiskars punch and the butterflies is a Martha Stewart punch. The stamp set used on all 3 is Happy Days pictured below:

This next one, I used the Silhouette for the center step card and for the flowers and the fence. Search for center step card and flowers and a fence to find them on the Silhouette website. I used a small cloud fiskars punch on the sides of the cards and some butterfly gems to accent the card.
This next one, I used the Silhouette for the center step card and for the trees. Search for center step card and retro trees to find them on the Silhouette website. I used a fiskars punch for the fence on the sides of the cards and some butterfly and flower gems to accent the card. I also used my Cricut for the grass from Create a Critter.
