Birthday Friend

Welcome...I'm so glad you could stop by today!  Settle in, grab a coffee, tea, piece of chocolate or whatever your vise may be, relax and take a peek around!

Today I would like to share with you our challenge over at Twist of Faith Card Challenges which is "Children".  Now this is open to can showcase an image of a child(ren), or make a card to give to a child.  We are so excited to be sponsored this week by Milk Coffee!  Be sure to check out their store!  The random winner will receive 5 digis!  How awesome!


I had the pleasure of using their digi stamp "Charlotte". 

Now I knew exactly what I would use this image for when it was presented to me.  My daughter has a close friend who is celebrating a birthday shortly and I wanted to make her an extra special card.  These two young 10 year olds have been friends since birth and enjoy each others company.  Well, I came across a piece of designer paper I had been hoarding for quite sometime...and thought the colors would be absolutely stunning with this digi image.  It was from the Bo Bunny Collection called Alora.  I water colored "Charlotte" with my Tim Holtz distress markers, taking my color scheme from this amazing paper. 

Here's a look at how it all turned out...

Let's look a little closer...

And here's a better photo of that darling image I had the pleasure of creating with...

I had so much fun designing this little labor of love.  Most of the elements on this page such as the flowers, word sentiments and background paper have all been used from the same piece of card stock.  I did a bunch of fussy cutting to get the elements I wanted to include on the card.  The circle die cuts behind the digi (Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle and Circle with Lace) have been cut with the BigShot and I have used some designer paper from the  "Tattered and Worn" collection by Recollections. I also used the Sissix dies "Decorative Flourishes" to add some whimsy to the card.  I chose to give some of the flowers a 3D effect by running the edges over my bone folder so that they would appear to be popping off the page.  I also used some pop up dots on the digi image itself, as well as on the birdhouse and little birdie in the corner (also fussy cut from the Alora card stock).  Lastly, if I know anything about little 10 year old girls, it's that they are desperately trying to grow up and act older, but that they still also love their sparkles and bling.  So I decided to use some Crystal Stickles on the centres of the flowers I curled, and also added some Platinum Liquid Pearls to the lacy circle die cut.

I wanted to do something a little different than the usual "Happy Birthday" sentiment, and as you know here at Twist of Faith we require everyone to use either a scripture, or an uplifting or encouraging sentiment.  When I found these three words on the Alora paper, I felt that this a message I would want to tell all little girls in this day and age...wish, dream and love.  I find that children in general these days are required to grow up much more quickly than my generation ever had to.  The pressures for a girl are look the right way, to dress with the in crowd and to conform to whatever your friends may be doing.  I wish these young girls would all realize that there is so much more for them...make wishes, follow your dreams and love one another!  And most importantly walk with Jesus...He will help you with your wishes, dreams and to be able to love when it doesn't seem possible.

And as for the gift to accompany this card...well, there was much thought put into that as well.  My daughters friend is an avid reader...however purchasing books is not the easiest thing to do when you're never quite sure if they've read the ones you have in mind.  As I was browsing in Michaels the other day, I came across these books in the American Girl line.

I was pretty sure I had never heard the Bday girls mom say that she had read anything in this series, so I took a chance and purchased them.  From everything I've read about them, they are an uplifting series encouraging young girls to be the best they can be.  So I hope these will be a hit!

Thanks for sitting down and taking time to visit with me here today!  I so appreciate it when you stop by!  Be sure to link up your "children" submissions over with us at Twist of Faith, and take time to check out the other DT members beautiful projects! You'll be glad you did!
Until next time...

Summer Happiness

Hello and welcome to another Wednesday!  Today I wanted to share with you a card I created using a digi stamp from "A Day For Daisies" who is our sponsor for our current card challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges.

 Our theme this week is "Summer Holidays", and I chose the digi stamp entitled "Boy at the Beach".  I fell in love with this image when I saw it because it totally reminded me of my son!  Our favorite summer holidays are spent camping...which of course involves time at the beach.  Both of my children love the water and playing in the sand, however my son is always so excited to be there.  He loves playing in the sand making sand castles, digging holes to fill with water, etc.  It always seems that he has such freedom and no cares in the world when he is splashing in the water, digging in the's pure happiness. 

Well enough chit's the card I created with this delightful image!

Now I wanted this card to be more along the clean and simple line so that the image would be where your eye was drawn.  I have to admit that I was a little worried working on this card as I seldom water color as it isn't my strongest talent.  I also have to admit that this is one of the first digi stamps I have ever used!  I think I am okay with how it turned out.

 The image has been colored with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  The background paper is a paper that I won at a scrapbook crop I attended and have had kicking around in my scrap room for quite some time.  The colors and stripes just reminded me of the beach for some reason.  I cut out the circle in the background paper using my Spellbinders Circle die cut template and used the same circle die cut for the image of the boy at the beach.  I then placed a piece of brown card stock behind the circle cut out where the image was to be mounted.  The little flags have also been cut with a Spellbinders die called "Button and Bunting".  The entire card has been lightly inked with a brown color to give it a worn and seaside feeling.  All edges have been inked with the same brown color just a tad bit darker to give the card some contrast.

 The sentiment is from Stamp 'n Up and totally tied in with the feeling I wanted to portray through the image...the sight and feeling I described of my son earlier...just happy and relaxed.  I think this sentiment is so true for many of us...we are so busy looking for happiness that we forget to be happy and content just where we are.

Well, that's pretty much it for me today.  I hope you pop by Crafty Creations and link up your "Summer Holiday" creation with us there.  The rest of our Design Team has some awesome creations as well, so be sure to stop by their blogs and leave them some blog love as well.  Until next time...

The Lord is my Strength and my Song

Welcome!  I'm so glad you could join me today! 
 I have some news to well as a card of course. 
I am excited to announce that I have joined the design team over at Twist of Faith Card Challenges!  This is a blog I recently discovered, and fell in love with its "mission"...sharing the love of God through their card making and creativity.  I am blessed to be working with these ladies, and look forward to learning from them as well as encouraging each other and other bloggers in their faith!

Well, now onto the business at hand...
Twist of Faith has a new challenge starting today, and it is "Borders & Fancy Edges".  Our sponsor this week is

Digi Darla

and the prize for this challenge will be 5 digis of the winners choice! 

I chose to work with the image "Music Man" as I knew I had a sentiment on a stamp that would work perfectly!  I picked out a pumpkin colored card stock and got the Silhouette Cameo humming. I chose to use a really cool card with a fancy scrolled edge.  I started looking through my designer paper and decided to go with Authentique's "Strong" line.  All of the coordinating card papers on the front of the card come from this line.  I inked the edges of the card pieces with "Not Quite Navy" by Stamp 'n Up.  The circle die cut was produced by using the a Spellbinders die in my BigShot.  I adhered a musical washi tape to the side of the card to create a simple border.  The sentiment was stamped and fussy cut into random shapes so I could adhere them to the card in a scattered pattern.  Both the digi image and the wording have been mounted onto navy colored card stock so that they would pop off the page a little more.  I then fussy cut some notes I printed out with the Silhouette Cameo.  Lastly, I chose a yellowish colored paper to use as a liner on the inside of the right hand side of the card so that the scrolled edge became a more focal feature. 

Here's how it turned out...

and a close up of the awesome image I had the pleasure of working with...

And there we have it!  Thanks for joining me today, and I hope you have a chance to link up with us over at Twist of Faith...just remember you must use a scripture, verse or uplifting or encouraging sentiment somewhere on your card (inside or's your choice!)  And don't forget to visit the other DT's blogs to see their most awesome creations!

A Card Request

Happy Thursday!  I hope that wherever you are you are enjoying your day!  I have been up a large part of the night as we were having thunderstorms here with intense lightning and thunder...and my son could not sleep!  It's been a long time since one of our kids has been up with the weather...but last night had a lot of booming and blitzing and I myself was a little unsettled with it!  We may have to have a nap time this afternoon!  LOL

Last week one afternoon I stopped in at my parents and my mom had some not so happy news to share with me.  It would seem that one of my aunts has been diagnosed with cancer.  She had stopped in and visited with mom and dad, and had given them the news that morning.  Now this comes so quickly after the death of one of my uncles, and I do believe the family is somewhat stunned.  My aunt is staying positive and the doctor has told her that the cancer she has is a very good one to have...if you can say that there is a good cancer to have.  He has given her hope that this type they are able to deal with very successfully. 

My mom asked me if I would create a card for her to send to my aunt as an encouragement.  I had an image in mind that I was wanting to use from the Heartwarming Vintage Die Cut Photos collection...however put off the endeavour a bit as I couldn't wrap my head around the color scheme I had to be using.  Funny how sometimes color schemes can seem so daunting...

I decided that I would try using a gate card template I had purchased on the Silhouette Online Store.  To switch things up a bit, I decided to flip it and have it open top and bottom rather than side to side.  I found some brocade style background paper that I thought I could work with.  It totally reminded me of wallpaper you would find in an older Victorian home of days gone by.  I inked it up with some rusts, greens and browns to make it appear more aged and to tie in with the color of the die cut photo.  I also got my Silhouette Cameo humming...cut and colored all of the other embellishments with the Cameo.  This includes the flowers, Victorian frame, and the flourishes.  I added a rhinestone flourish as well for some interest and sparkle.  To the centre of the flowers I added some Cotton Candy Stickles to tie into the color of the ribbon on the little girls dress.  This was the first time I had attempted to make 3D flowers, and was very happy with how they came out...and how easy they were to create.  I bent the petals on the flowers forward with my bone folder to give them the appearance of real flowers.  I inked them in different shades to give them some extra added realism and dimension.  I also inked the flourishes to make them seem aged as well.  Here's a look at how the card came out...

A bit more of a close up...

And a close up of the sentiment...

I was quite happy with how this card turned out, and love the image and the message it gives.  I'm hoping I did okay with the color scheme as I did not find these colors the easiest to work with!  LOL  My biggest wish is that this will encourage my aunt and brighten her day when my mom sends it to her!  It will be a great reminder that she is being thought of and prayed for! 

Well that's pretty much it for me today.  I need to head out the door and get some grocery shopping done.  And mom...I know you're reading this...I'll pop by with the card tomorrow!  Until next time...

Ahoy Matey! Shiver Me Timbers!

First I must apologize for being so busy on the blog this week!  However, I came across a challenge awhile back that I just could not resist & wanted to participate in!  It's with the Lollipop Ladies...and the subject is "Pirates and Water". I just love their blog which I have just recently discovered!  They are having a DT call as well with this challenge...and I may just think about it!  I'm really enjoying my DT time over at Crafty Creations Challenges and wouldn't mind some more experience to add to my portfolio.  We'll see what I decide!  LOL

Another blog I enjoy following is Pile it On!  Their theme this week is "Water"...well isn't that where you will find pirates and their crews...on the high seas?  They too are having a DT call with this challenge.  So pop on over there as well with your water themed creations!

Now onto the challenges at hand...

My son LOVES pirates!  When we went to Disney he had a pirate makeover and loved it! I finally got around to scrap booking some of those photos and think the pages turned out so very cute!

Here's a sneak peek...(sorry some of the photos are taken from a bit of a distance, just trying to protect my son's privacy a little...thanks for understanding!)

For his makeover he was given a pirate name which was "Captain William Ropewalker".  You can see I've incorporated that into the titles of the double layout.  The background paper is a water blue and comes from the "All About Boys" paper stack by DCWV.  Actually all of the papers in the first layouts I will be showing you today come from that collection.  The "cogs" were a purchase I made from my favorite scrap shop and were cut from cork.  The pirate ship on the high seas in the corner was fussy cut from the same paper collection I previously mentioned.  I added some Stickles to the waves so they would glisten.  Along the bottom of the layouts I used snippets of words that were on a paper from the "All About Boys" collection as well.  I raised the ship off of the page with pop up dots to give it the look of floating along.

Here's a closer look at some of the detailing...

...and of the pirate ship and the various wording I fussy cut and ran together for an accent border!

As you can see in the above photo I have also torn the edges of the mats behind the photos and aged them with some distress ink.  

Well, I did another double layout of  this fantastic makeover and this is what that one looks like...

This one I entitled "Tyrant Training" as this is where the "wench" who transformed our son into a pirate gave him his instructions and he took his pirate oath!  It was too cute!  That sword did come with many rules!  

The images I used on this layout were from the Cricut Imagine Cartridge "Buccaneer". Even the 12x12 paper I used for this creation has been printed by my Cricut Imagine, as well as the mats behind the photos.  Here's a few closeups of those images...

Every pirate needs a crew...

Lastly, I wish to share with you my son's Birthday Party Invitation.  That too was Pirate themed!  It was completely made with my Cricut Imagine using the "Buccaneer" cartridge as well!

I had the Cricut cut out the various pieces of some of the images so that I could layer them and make the card more 3D.

This is what the inside of the invite looked like...


Well mateys that's all for me today!  I better get back to work swabbing my decks, doing the laundry, etc. before me family makes me walk the plank!

Thanks for cruising the high seas with me today...AAARRR

Shades of the Sunset

It would seem that I've had a bit of time on my hands today...the kiddos are out with their dad picking up a boat he just purchased!  They are all super excited and I am glad that they can be out on this adventure together.  This gives me some time at home to create by myself...I was planning on cleaning my craft room, but alas I've been creating instead!

I came across a challenge today with Twist of Faith Card Challenges that really intrigued use the colors of the Sunset!  I have never played along with them before, but absolutely love the positive tone of the blog! (I've enjoyed this challenge so much that I've entered twice!  LOL)  I enjoy making scriptural cards and cards of encouragement however, don't take the time to do it often enough!

Here's a peek at what I came up with...

Here's a closer peek...

...and a bit closer peek yet so you can catch some of the details!

For this card I used peach colored paper from "The Secret Garden" Collection.  The photo die cuts are from the Heartwarming Vintage collection.  All of the paper has been distressed with ink to give it a vintage feel.  The sentiment is from a Stamp 'n Up collection! The crown on the little birds head has been covered with Glitter Ritz. It's a simple card that can be used for really any occasion...birthday, thinking of you, or just a quick note of encouragement!

I suppose I better leave the computer now and head back into the craft clean this time...not to create!  When you can no longer find the table, I guess it's time to start putting things back into place!  (I can't possibly be the only crafter with that problem...can I?)  I'll use my willpower and instead think about what the sunset will look like from that boat that's coming home!  Thanks for joining me today!  Come again soon!  (And if you're a messy crafter, feel free to leave me a comment about it...I just don't want to be alone in that category!  LOL)

Love & Friendship

 Summer often makes us think of the beach, vacationing and relaxing...but weddings and young love also come to my mind when I think of the summer months.  Now we don't attend many weddings anymore as that season of our lives seems to have gone by the wayside for now, however I love making interesting vintage cards to have on hand that can be used for engagement cards, weddings or anniversaries.  I have to admit that I like to give a card that's a little out of the norm as we all remember how many floral, lacy sappy wedding cards we received when we were married!  LOL  

Here's a card I came up with to keep in my stash...

And a close up of the lovely couple....

Isn't this card just absolutely romantic?  I just love the colors in this card...they remind me of a beautiful sunset!  And the scene just reminds me of a movie from the 30's!  So simple...and yet so elegant!

Summertime Pool Fun!

Today I have something very simple to share with you.  It didn't take me long to create these two special cards...and good thing because I didn't have a bunch of time to work with them.  

The last 5 days the kids and I have spent camping at our local beach with friends.  We chose this week to camp because all of our kids were scheduled for swimming lessons as well.  Now, even though lessons are offered at our local beach, I've always taken the kids to the daughter would never take lessons at the beach as she detests all the algae.  (She told me while she was wading in the beach again several times this past week!  LOL!)  This year we decided to try a week long course with a new instructor rather than the two week courses we usually just seems that two weeks ties up so much of the summer!  The kids loved the new instructors and the indoor pool!  I too was very impressed with the instructors...the lessons were private lessons with both my kids in at the same time, but they each had their own teacher.  The private one on one certainly did seem to benefit both of the kids as there was time taken to improve their techniques as well as to correct past techniques learned incorrectly.  

 Well, me being me, and always looking for an excuse to make a card, I set to work making each of these teachers a card that would show them how appreciative I was for the effort that they put into the lessons and getting to know each of the kids.  I decided to go with a "pool" theme and when I came across these little people in the Silhouette Store...I just couldn't resist!  (Sorry for the not so great photos...its was starting to rain and the mosquitoes were eating me alive!  LOL)

Take a peek...

Here's a close up of the one my daughter will present to her teacher (along with a Dairy Queen giftcard)...

And here's the one my son will present to his teacher (with the same special treat inside...)

Each of these adorable figures was printed and cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  As I stated before, I didn't have a lot of time to work with them, so I colored them and made them a single cut out rather than layering the different paper pieces together.  I mirrored them in the Silhouette Studio so I could attach a Stamp 'n Up tab created with my punch and make them into little cards.  On the little boy I adhered the tabs to his head and left arm so he would open up sideways.  For the little girl I adhered the tab to the top of her head so she would flip up.  This is the first time I have made a card using these tabs and was quite happy with the end results.  The only thing I would do differently next time would be to make the images larger...perhaps a 5x7 card so that there is more room to add the message inside.  (These were created in a 51/2x4 size.)
I embellished the little girl with some Stamp 'n Up pearls along her bathing suit neckline, and added some flowers to her hair...embellies had been in my stash for awhile!  For the little boy, I used some "Rock Candy" Stickles on the stars on his floaty. 

Well, that's pretty much it for today!  We'll head off to finish swimming lessons tonight and we can then check that off the list for anther year!

Thanks for taking time to visit me today!  Come again soon!

I've had fun playing along with the following challenges with these cards...

Have Some "Pun Fun" with Crafty Creations Challenges

Happy Wednesday!  

Today I'd like to invite you to play along with us at Crafty Creations Challenges!  Our theme for this week is "Pun Fun"!  Our sponsor for this challenge is our very own Jaime with Close to My Heart. Check out her blog here and do some shopping in her Close to My Heart store!

Jaime was kind enough to provide the DT with some images and the image I chose to use comes from the Close to My Heart "Pun Fun" collection.  I went with a belated birthday theme as once in awhile I do forget to send a card on time and thought this would make a great addition to my "emergency" stash!  LOL
And what says oops I'm a little late, but didn't forget better than a turtle...

Now I still wanted to keep the card celebratory and chose to use some very bright and fun card stock from the Doodlebug Design Collection called "Flower Box". (With the exception of the striped background paper which was just from my unknown stash.)  I inked the edges of all the card stock with a pine cone colored ink. The shaped card as well as all of the matting were cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  The turtle and sentiment are from Close to My Heart and as I said earlier are from the "Pun Fun" collection and the image has been water colored with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The little turtle has been mounted on pop up dots so he stands out among the busyness of the colors on the card. The layered banner has been cut with the BigShot and the Spellbinders die set entitled "Bunting and Button". 
I also used the Stamp 'n Up embossing folder "Perfect Polka Dots" in this creation and some flower buttons from a Stamp 'n Up collection as well. 

Hopefully when I need to use this card, the recipient will be drawn to the bright and cheery colors and not focus on the lateness on my part!

I hope I've inspired you to create your own card using a pun as your main focus to work around...there are many cute and exciting ones out there.  Please be sure to link up at Crafty Creations Challenges to show us what you've designed...and don't forget to check out the other "punny" cards the other DT members have created for your inspiration...Sorry, pun intended! 

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Do you remember the 50's?  The 50's and 60's have always been decades that I've been fascinated with!  I love the music, the style of clothing and it just looked like a fun time to be young!  Now when you think 50's, I think what comes to mind for most people are poodle skirts, awesome cars, shakes and malts, vinyl records, the jukebox, etc.  Now when I think 50's my mind goes straight to the image of the perfect housewife.  LOL 

Now I cannot claim to be anything like the domestic divas represented in this era.  My house is never 100% tidy, I don't wear my apron all the time and don't always have supper ready when my husband comes home.  (All of this would just cut into too much card making/scrap booking time!)  However, when I look at the representation of the 50's housewife, I cannot help but think maybe it was a simpler time.  They were able to stay at home and look after their family without the extra added pressure of a career...they had time to get together with other housewives and chat...there was perhaps more pride in being a mother and housewife during that time...all in all I think maybe they were not spread so thin as many of us current day moms who try to do it all!

Well, you may wonder where all this mindless babble is going...

Stuck on U Sketches is holding a "Nifty 50's" die cut challenge currently!  I wanted to represent this era on behalf of all the housewives from back then...and here's what I came up with!

I have to say that I had so much fun working on this card! 

The background paper comes from a Heartwarming Vintage Die Cut sheet! I know I've mentioned that I love those...and I guess I'm saying it again!  The sentiment and the corner die cut card also come from the same sheet.  The lady in red (winking at you in the centre of the card), as well as the rolling pin, cooking utensils, over mitts and pie have all been cut with my Cricut Imagine.  The cartridge I used was "Kate's Kitchen.

Here's a bit of a close look...

And a close up shot of the die cuts I cut with my Imagine...

I hope you've enjoyed this walk down memory lane with me today!  I have to say that this 50's style card has got me wanting to put on my vintage material apron (oh you bet I have one...bought it just because it reminded me of the era with the old mixers, stoves, etc. on it) and maybe do some baking.  But that will have to wait...because company's coming and I think I better do some cleaning first!  LOL

Thanks again for stopping by...pop in again soon!
