Peachy Keen Challenge #41 - Episode~130

Good Morning & welcome to another Peachy Keen Challenge! For this challenge, we were to make a card of  using "Words of Encouragement"! So, I thought this little owl & the sentiment fit the recipe just "PERFECT"! I had actually made my card using my Imagine & the "Blast Off" cartridge! Sentiment is from Pink By Design & the BEST part about this owl was that I was able to use a Peachy face!!! I was SOOO HAPPY!;) The face is from the set "Critter Faces" size large! My owl was cut @ 2 1/2 in & the frame was cut @ 4 in! Did I mention that my ADORABLE owl was put onto my card w/my NEW FAVORITE item, a "Wobble"!;) Now, onto our "Special Guest Designer"  Miss Mandy Ferg of The Polka Dot Spot . WOW, Miss Mandy is one talented lady, I'll tell ya! She is a regular who always participates in the Peachy challenges AND also my throwback Thursday challenges!

Imagine Nation Monday "Gift" Challenge! - Episode~129

Good Morning My Creative Friends! Welcome to another Imagine Nation Monday Challenge! For this challenge, I decided for it to be a "Gift" challenge! It can be ANY thing you would give as a gift to someone for Christmas, birthday, baby shower, anniversary, etc....... For my "Gift" project, I decided to make a bracelet out of "Shrinky Dink" paper! This is NOT my original idea, I actually "Scraplifted" this from Paula @ More Than Favors! OMG, Paula had made the CUTEST EVER bracelet using Shrinky Dink paper! Now mine didn't come out AS bright & as nice as hers did because I used a little different paper! I ordered the paper she had used, but it did NOT arrive on time:(  But anyhow, I still think my bracelet came out SUPER cUte! In the video I showed you the process but I forgot to mention to use a 1/8" punch to punch a hole in your shape BEFORE you put it into the oven! My directions from my package said to put your over between 300-350 degrees & bake for 2 1/2-3 minutes!;) I hope you enjoy my video! The deadline to enter this challenge is on Sunday, December 5th! If you own an Imagine, PLEASE use it for this challenge! If not, make an "Imagine~Like" project using your cricut!;)


Here are 2 different views of my "Imagine" Charm Bracelet from "Snow Angel" cartridge!


Now, for my "SPECIAL GUEST" this week! I am SO SUPER EXCITING to have Miss Joy w/Joyslife join me today! I have ALWAYS admired her & her creativity so I was SUPER happy when she agreed to be my guest today! To read & see more info on her GORGEOUS "Gift" projects, you can visit Joy @ Joyslife.com & leave her some Love!;)

Emma asked me to be a Guest today for her Imagine Nation Monday series. Woo hoo! I adore Emma, so of course I said, “Yes!” I’m so glad she asked me because it gave me a reason to get back to my Imagine. I’ve left it alone for weeks and it was very sad. I used the Lori’s Garden Cricut Imagine cartridge, white cardstock, some adhesive and a $3 photo frame from Walmart to create a quick gift for my husband’s aunt who loves birds. You can see I also stuck some of the birds to one of those containers that I previously turned into a hurricane lamp. It’s perfect for adding some flowers!

I have more information and photos at http://www.joyslife.com/. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of Imagine Nation Monday. You ROCK EMMA!



OKAY, DRUMROLL Please.......... The LUCKYwinner from our "Buttons" challenge, Random.org chose:
19. Amanda Bodine

WHOOOHOOO!!! Congrats Miss Amanda! Email me your addy so I can mail you your prize! OH, BTW, you won My Pink Stamper's "Buggy Punnies" stamp set!!!

A Classy Bachelorette Invitation!

O M G! I just HAD to show all of you this "Classy"  Bachelorette card that my dear friend Veronica @ VK Design had created! Isn't it just "PERFECT"??? I asked her if I could share this not only because she is one Talented lady, but also I have had questions in the past on ideas for "Simple" Bachelorette invites! I thought this was the Perfect card to showcase!  I just LOVE the simplicity of this card!

Here is the recipe for her "masterpiece":
Cartridge used: "Once Upon a Princess" (The ring & Label)
Border Punch is from Stampin Up
Sentiment is from a stamp set called "Grand Soiree" from Stampin Up
All Cardstock is from Papertrey Inc. & Stampin Up
Ink is "Basic Gray" from Stampin Up
Crystal Stickles



Thank you for stopping by! I am going to have a little Ustream tomorrow night so I can share a few things w/you! If you are up to chat, please feel free to join me HERE!
