Moxie Fab World "Textured to Perfection" challenge!

Hello my Creative friends! I usually don't post anything on the weekends, but I squeezed in some crafting time in this morning to get this card done!~  I am entering this card for the Textured to Perfection Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!  This is my very first time entering one of their SUPER FUN challenges & I am VERY EXCITED to do so! This deadline is on Mon 10/31 @ midnite~! Come check out this AWESOME blog HERE & join in on the fun!;)

Okie dokie, since we had to use "texture" in our projects, I already had a "vision" of what I wanted mine to look like! For my "texture", I used burlap, feathers & some balsa wood that I found @ Hobby Lobby! I just LOVE this stuff & it cuts so perfectly w/my dies~!  For my card, I used 2 different dies, "XL Label Die" (which is behind my Turkey) & the "Stitched Oval Die"!
I also used the sentiment from my "Mixed Holiday Sentiments'! That ADORABLE turkey face stamp is Peachy Keen's "Critter Faces Large" that was stamped onto my stitched circle die & I used my scallop die for the body! The "Scallop & stitched circle die" is sold as a set! I just wish you can see the balsa wood that I cut out w/my XL Label Die & stamped on it w/XL Borders & I inked it up w/Tim Holtz "Gathered Twigs". All I have to say is that I LOVE that Balsa Wood which I picked up from Hobby Lobby! The Burlap border is from "Pro 31 Designs"! Speaking of this cute little etsy shop, if you used the coupon code "MYCREATIVETIME" you will receive 15% off of your order!;)

I also forgot to mention that I got to use my FAVORITE Fall paper from DCWV "Harvest Gathering" matstack!
Well, I hope you enjoy my little cute turkey! I am SO HAPPY that I was able to FINALLY do one of these FABULOUS challenges! Have a SAFE Halloween weekend my sweet friends! xoxo

Friday Tip of the Day! - Episode 265

HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I was SOOO happy lastnight! When I showed Baby Aaron these treats that I made for Anthony's class, he changed his mind & now he wants the SAME treats as Anthony! YAHOO! Yep, these treats were SOOO EASY to make, it's re-donkulus!;) hehehehe! I actually used my imagine to print on my address labels! Isn't that COOL??? I used the "Buccaneer" cartridge for it!I also used "Limitless Labels" from Papertrey Ink to stamp onto each label, after I printed them w/my Imagine! For a few of them, I used the little pattern backround stamps in my "Build a Banner Kit" to stamp on the labels! I wanted to show those of you who do not own an Imagine that this can be done w/o it as well! Those EXTRA special eyes I used were from Peachy Keen Stamps, "The Uglies Asst"!
I just LOVE how these turned out! In my video below, you can see exactly how I made these!

Here is a closeup of these CUTIES!

Here is my video!:)

Here is a cute little "Witch Hat Pin" that I picked up for the teachers! Of course, the "original" packaging was NOT very attractive! So, I used my "XL Label Die", punched a couple of holes in it & now the pin looks SO MUCH MORE Presentable!;) That pretty paper is DCWV "The Ghosts & Goblins Stack"! I thought the tulle just finished it off!

Okay! I hope you enjoyed my "Friday Tip of the Day"! Now you can use your Imagine to print on those address labels & have some pretty wrapped nuggets! Have a FABULOUS weekend my sweet friends & I will see you back here soon!;) xoxo

My Creative Time's FIRST Design Team Call!

To my future Design Team:
I know that there are a lot of amazing stamps out there and you have the choice to be on any one of the several "Sentiment-Based" Design Teams available. I'm so honored and thrilled that you've chosen to apply for mine!!! Being on a Design Team (Thanks, Peachy Keen!) was a big goal of mine and has launched me to where I am today - having my very own DT! I'm so grateful for the experiences I've had and lessons I've learned from being on Design Teams and know how much work they can be!

And though I WISH I could have each and every one of you on my Design Team - that would be A LOT of members to keep track of (and I already have 3 boys to keep track of at home. Yes, that includes my DH)! Therefore, I have to choose a select few to showcase my stamp line and really bring out its best features. Because of this, I'm requesting that should you be chosen as a member of my DT, you not join or currently be serving as a Design Team member for any other "Sentiment-Based" stamp companies during your term. Thanks so much for understanding! Also, you would need to have a blog to participate!
Please create ONE project for this call. It can either be a card, layout, home decor item or a 3-D item! It would be nice to see my stamps used in your projects, but if you do NOT own any, please feel free to use what you have!
It would be a 3 month term, you will be required to do 1 to 2 blog hops a month & complete approx 8 (this is including sneak peek week)  projects a month!

Your entry MUST BE A NEW PROJECT especially for this DT call!;)
The deadline is Saturday, October 29th @ midnight to link your project up below!
I will announce my new DT on Friday, Nov 4th!
GOOD LUCK MY SWEET CREATIVE FRIENDS!


DESIGN TEAM CALL IS NOW CLOSED!
THIS IS GOING TO BE THE HARDEST DECISION! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!:)
