Friday's "Tip of the Day"! - Episode 240

HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Welcome to another "Friday Tip of the Day"! For today, I've had several questions regarding card sizes, how many you can get from an 8 1/2x11 & 12x12 cardstock. I also had several questions on which My Creative Time stamp sets would be good starters! I answered all of those questions in my video below! I'd thought I would leave you w/2 SUPER SIMPLE cards to show you that your card can be perfect even w/o adding tons of layers! "Less is More"! hehehehe!;)
Not sure what was going on, but my pics kinda came out crummy today:(
This 1st card is a simple 3x3 card using "Small Talk", "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" & the Peachy Keen image is from "Halloween Sweet Folks"!
This one is a standard A2 size card using "Small Talk", "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" and the Peachy Keen image is from "Snowmen, Greetings & Globe"!

Here is my video answering a few of your questions on which "My Creative Time" stamps would be good "Starters" & different cards sample sizes using an 8 1/2x11 & 12x12 cardstock!

Well, I hope this helped some of you out there today!:) Stayed tuned this weekend because my design team & myself are having a  "Special" blog hop this Sunday! It is going to be a GOOD ONE!!! Hope to see you all there!;) Until then..... have a FABULOUS day my sweet creative friends! xoxo's

Guidelines:

Must include elements of the twist (buttons) somewhere in your project
Link up by 9/5 - 11:59 pm CDT to the Peachy Keen Blog!


I am SOOO EXCITED about my project ONLY because I am already getting a head start on my Christmas "Things to do" list! This year I decided to give my boys gift cards from their favorite stores & I wanted to use my brand new "Embossed Gift Card Holder Die" to put them into! I will be making several of these all different ways & they will make PRETTY christmas tree decorations!! I will be putting them all on my tree this year! I can't wait!;) When I saw this stamp set "Lorie Loves Skip Faceless Elves" I just KNEW EXACTLY how I was going to use it!;) WOW, this set is "seriously" a MUST HAVE!!! It is a pretty good size where you can just use them alone as a tag! For that ADORABLE face, I decided to use another Peachy set "Snowmany Faces 1 1/8" Did you see that AWESOME wood grain stamp background? Yep, if you guessed "Market Street Stamps", you sure did get that right! I just LOVE Market street stamp backgrounds only because you never have to struggle to get the most perfect stamp EVER! This one I used was simply called "Woodgrain"! This is definitely another MUST have stamp as well! Finally, for my sentiment, I used one of my newest release stamps "Gift Card Sentiments" I designed this set to coordinate w/the gift card holder! I stamped my sentiment onto one of my newest smaller dies "Stitched Oval Die"! I just think my gift card holder came out ADORABLE! I just LOVE it & I hope you do too!:)

This is not a "real" gift card, but this is the only thing I had on hand to show you how it would look!;)

Here is my video showing how I created this!;) ENJOY my sweet friends!;)

Alright, I hope you enjoyed my sweet project here today! Don't forget to visit the rest of this AWESOME design team's blogs so you can see ALL of the BEAUTIFUL ideas they came up with for this sketch!;) Have a FABULOUS day my sweet friends & I will see you all back here tomorrow!;)

Guest Designer for Mr. Cricut Crazy!

Good morning my Creative friends! Today, I was asked by the young talented "Mr Cricut Crazy" to be a "Guest Designer" for him! OF COURSE, I said YES!  If you haven't seen this young man's stamp line, you are definitely missing out! If you are a "Dog Lover" like I AM, then you DEFINITELY want to head over there because he has the BEST furry friends stamp sets EVER!;) For my sweet card today, I used Tanner's a.k.a. Mr. Cricut Crazy stamp set "Haley"  I paired sweet "Haley" up w/one of my sentiments from my stamp set "My Favorite Sayings"! I found those ADORABLE little bone shaped paper clips at a scrapbook store & I just KNEW I had to have them!
I just want to say "Thank you to Tanner for inviting me to be your "Guest Designer" today! I had LOTS of fun playing w/your stamps my friend! Keep up the GREAT work!"
I hope you enjoyed my cute card today! I will see you back here in a little bit for the Peachy Keen challenge! :) xoxo's

Monday Madness.... Imagine That!!!

Good morning & welcome to another "Monday Madness......Imagine That!!! For my card today, I actually used my E2 w/an Imagination cartridge for the FIRST time! The BEST thing about this was that I was able to use a Peachy Keen face w/it!!!;) I ONLY cut out the snowman using my E2 & I had to cut the pattern paper in my Imagine, since the E2 does not print! I used the "Enjoy The Seasons" imagine cartridge today! I also used my newest release stamp set "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!;) For the BEAUTIFUL face, I used "Winter Wonderland Face Asst"!


Okie dokie! Now on to my FABULOUS design team!

Miss Cathryn used my stamp set "Home Sewn" for her card today!;)

Miss Cindy made 2 cards today also using "Home Sewn"

Miss Cindy's 2nd card ALSO using "Home Sewn"!;)
