Scrappy Moms Sneak Peak #4 -

Hi everyone!  Well, we got my daughter up to camp on Sunday and while it was not tear free as I had hoped, she did just fine.  She only shed a few tears as we said good-bye.  Me, on the other hand, cried like a big baby as soon as we got in the car to come home!

I have another card for you today using the new Scrappy Moms Stamps set - Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I cut the pie/rolling pin from Country Life at 3"and the background papers are from K and Company.

SMS is offering FREE SHIPPING until June 30th so be sure to get your order in so you don't miss out!   The Scrappy Moms Design team are all featuring some adorable projects made with the two new releases.....be sure to go check them out.

And our Guest Designer this month, Sandra.

Paper Playtime - Cream of the Crop

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  It's time for another challenge over at Paper Playtime.  The challenge this week is to make a Z-Fold card.  I haven't made very many cards like this so I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.  I've been dying to use this paper from Cosmo Cricket for a while.  I love the veggies on this....so cute!

The corn is cut from Country Life at 3"h and the two shaped mats are from Elegant Edges.  The senitment is from Scrappy Moms Stams.   I added the Scrabble tiles at the last minute but I love the way it looks.

I cut my lamb at 3"h out of white paper but then added some Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink to him. I wanted the lamb to have a country feel to go with this pretty gingham paper from K and Company.  The sentiment is the from Scrappy Moms Stamp - Furry Friends.

Happy Fall Banner

I hope everyone is having a great week.  I've been playing around with banners the last couple of weeks.  I made two "Happy Birthday" ones last week and today I made this "Happy Fall" one.  I love the way it turned out.  I used a scalloped circle from Lacy Labels for the base cut at 5".   The font I used is from "Country Life".  I really like this font, it cuts out so well and is not too thin.  The pumpkin is from Create a Critter....I used the hide contours feature to remove the face. I have had this paper for a while now and I just love this color combination.  I used sage green tulle to tie the panels together. I think it turned out really  pretty.

Cricut Cardz Challenge #41

The Cricut Cardz Challenge this week is to  make a card for Fall using any cartridges you'd like and any colors EXCEPT, NO brown, orange or yellow.

I used this cute designed paper from K and Company and my new Country Life cartridge.  I cut the apples at 2.5" and the "Harvest" at 1" and cut the shadow layer for each.  I added some green twine and a little metal charm that reads "Happy".

This was a simple card but I love the way it turned out. This is the first week for team #2 of the Cricut Cardz Design Team.....all of their cards are awesome.....click here to head on over.
