Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesday Challenge

This is my second post for today....scroll down for my Digi Bistro post!

It's time for another Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge.  This week we are using Straight From the Nest.  This is such a cute cartridge....it is one of the ones I had to have!  If you don't have this cartridge you can still play along....just use a similiar cut or SVG.  I have a baby shower to go to this weekend so I decided on the clothes line cut.

I wanted the line to have a post at each end so I flipped it and then just hand trimmed it to fit.  All the pattern paper is from DCWV.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms set - Special Delivery.

The Digi Bistro - This to That Challenge

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We were super busy coordinating a silent auction.  I'm glad that is over...it was taking up my crafting time.

It's time for the Digi Bistro's -This to That Challenge.  This week our challenge was to make a step card.   I had never made one until today and it's not as difficult as it looks.  You can search the internet of a number of tutorials on how to cut and score your card base.  I used the Furever Friends set for my card.


The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps set - Raining Cats and Dogs.

Each design team member is using a different set so be sure to visit everyone to see their fabulous cards.

Birds and Birdcages Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Birds and Birdcages Blog Hop hosted by Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut.
You should have arrived here from Amy's blog....if not click here to start at the beginning.

I decided to try something different for my project today.  I recently purchased a huge box of goodies from Maya Road. It was filled with all kinds of chip board pieces, albums and embellishments.   

This tag is made of canvas.


I inked up the tag with distress inks and then used my Market Street Stamps Vintage Music stamp for the background.
The birdcage stamp and velvet flower are from my Maya Road goodie box.   I cut the little red birds from Straight from the Nest and the sentiment is from Scrappy Moms stamps - Everyday Greetings.
This isn't my usual style but I had fun trying something new!

I don't have Pack Your Bags yet so I used the little crab from Smiley Cards.  I forget about this cartridge....I guess because I don't have a real handbook.  It has some really cute images on it.


The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and the card base is from Lacy Labels.

Cricut Cardz Challenge #86


Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I can't believe it's Wednesday already.  This week is flying by for me. The first day of school is less than two weeks away and we are busy getting supplies and uniforms ready.

It's time for this week's Cricut Cardz Challenge.  Our challenge is to use a fruit cut from any cartridge.  I decided on the strawberry from Paisley.  This is a super simple cut...only two pieces.

I used my Gypsy to weld two flower shapes from Elegant Edges to form my card base.  This beautiful pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary.  This paper is amazing....it's super thick and I am in love with every pattern.
The senitment is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps set - Good Eats.
