Beary Special Blog Hop ~ Episode 401

 GOOD MORNING my creative friends! 
Even though its not quite Halloween, I have decided to give you all a "Beary Special Treat"! This doesn't cause weight gain but will cause CUTENESS OVERLOAD! Included in this hop, you will see a "Beary Special" stamp set that I designed for this special hop!  Also, joining us for this hop are 5 VERY TALENTED "Guest Designers"!  
With that said, can I just say that I am OVER THE MOON EXCITED that today is FINALLY here!!! YAHOO!;) With all of the teddy bear inspiration EVERYWHERE, I thought it would be a GOOD idea to design a set that focused on Teddy bears!  Hey, why not...right?? I just have to say that this is my FAVORITE set by far to date!  In this set you will find 2 cute teddy bears along w/18 FUN sentiments! 
For my 1st card, all of the images & sentiment are from this set! (my glossy accents on the eyes were still wet) I added all embellishments from Liz's Paper Loft boutique along w/paper from Echo park ~"So happy together", added some stitching that made a PERFECT card!;)

 Here is a Christmas tag I made using my newest "Just Tags" die along w/embellishments from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique! This little cutie bear is the 2nd image that is included in this new stamp set! The sticker hat (jolee's boutique) & the bell are from Joann's! That sentiment is one of my faves from "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" which MANY of you have already! I know because I CANNOT keep this set on the shelves! lol.... I used copic markers to color in my teddy bears! You can see in my video below exactly how I colored them!;)

I just LOVE how this turned out! On the back, I stamped the To: & From: that is included w/the "Just Tags" die set! I CANNOT wait to start mass producing my tags this year!!!;)

I am SO IN LOVE w/my next Baby Tag!!! Again, these are my newest "Just Tags" die set that I used again here! I thought this sentiment was PERFECT since alot of us call our kids "Baby Bears", which came from us "Mama Bears"! lol.... hehehehe!

Embellishments again are from Liz's Paper Loft boutique (my FAVORITE boutique ever!) The button is from Papertrey Ink. OH, I forgot that I did add a little stickles to the adorable patch on his body!

OMG! Last, but certainly not least! Here is another tag I made using my "Tag Dies", which I just CAN'T get enough of and I got to use my brand new "Teddy Bear Parade" cartridge! HOW PERFECT is this cartridge to use my new stamps with?? This cartridge has the CUTEST CUTEST bears ever on here! I used the blackout feature to cut out my bear at 3 inches! The reason I used the blackout feature is because I was DYING to use my Peachy Keen's "Tear Bear Face Parts". What a PERFECT face stamp set (in my opinion) for this cartridge! I just want to hug all of my teddy bears today!;)  

The ribbon is from May Arts, hemp twine & the cute little white rose in her hair are from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique! I thought this sentiment was PERFECT for her AND I was so happy to see that this sentiment fit PERFECTLY onto my "Oval Stitched Die"! 

Here is my video showing how I color in my new teddy bears from "Beary Special Thoughts"!

Now, introducing my NEW "FAVORITE set EVER" that was created especially for this FUN hop!

Designer Challenge Host..... Tracy!

Hi Tracy here from Tracy's Cricut Corner!! I'm so excited to be hosting this week's Designer's Challenge!! 

 If you have visited my blog then chances are you know I LOVE googly eyes!! I just think they make everything a little bit  more fun!  lol!! So for my challenge you can make any project you like, just include googly eyes somewhere on it! Easy peasy as Emma would say! :)  

 I made a Halloween card using the Mini Monsters cartridge!

The card is a 5X7 size.  Frank is cut out at 5 1/2 inches.  I added some orange glitter glue to his tie and Glossy Accents to his shoes (which then made his hair look weird so I added some to there too!). The sentiment is from MCT's  Mixed Holiday Sentiment stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you join along in this challenge!  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!


And now for some EYE popping (hee hee) inspiration from the MCT Design Team

Emma;) that's me! hehehe!

What a fun challenge this was from Miss Tracy! As soon as Miss Tracy decided she wanted this to be a "Googly Eyes" challenge, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make! I've been dying to use my glasses & mustache dies on my newest die (Just Tags) I I just LOVE how it turned out! I was just at Hobby Lobby earlier today & picked up the fibers (on sale 40% off) that I used for this! You can obviously see the black fiber, but I also used the cream color one to put in between each layer of the tags!

I'd thought that this sentiment from "you had me at chocolate" was PERFECT for this! 
Supplies I used:
~ Oval shaped googly eyes (hobby lobby)
~ Black & cream color fibers (hobby lobby)

Didn't Miss Tracy do an AMAZING job w/her challenge & aren't these the CUTEST "Googly Eyes" projects EVER???  They ALL put a HUGE smile on my face!;) I hope to see LOTS of you playing along w/this challenge! 
Just a recap of this FUN challenge:
~ Make ANY PROJECT of YOUR choice using "GOOGLY EYES"
~ Deadline for challenge is Tuesday, Oct 9th @ midnight PST
~ Link your "Googly Eyes" project to Mr. Linky HERE on this post
~ Then Leave a comment!;)

Okay, now onto our LUCKY winner from the last "Designer Challenge" which was a "Recycle" challenge that was hosted by Miss Veronica~! FIRST of all, I was SOOOO IMPRESSED w/ALL of the AMAZING entrees, that I had choose TWO winners!!!;) The 2 lucky winners are:

"Scrapping the Little things!" ~ Episode 399

GOOD MORNING my creative friends! WOW! where did the weekend go??? Well, I am so EXCITING for today because it is another "Scrapping the Little Things" which we like to do every OTHER Monday! This is the day that my design team & myself will showcase "Project Life", "Project Life "like" layouts as well as "Smashbooking! Two of my new FAVORITE things right now!;) I am SUPER EXCITED to do my FIRST "project life" page here for you today! In my video below, I explain a little about it for those of you who are NOT familiar w/it! It reminds me of "old school" photo album"ing" w/ updated inserts that have pockets! I just want to share w/you how QUICK this was for me to put together! I had JUST made myself this cup of "Pumpkin Spice Latte via" & I didn't even finish it because this page was put together in NO TIME AT ALL! 

YEP, can you believe this was finished BEFORE I was able to finish my FAVORITE coffee drink in the whole wide world?? lol..... This is why I am going to thoroughly ENJOY making this pages just because they are "THAT FAST AND not to mention EASY"!  I decided to finally print these pictures from when we took my boys to their very FIRST Giant's game! Since it was on July 13th, we also celebrated my hubby's birthday there too! His birthday was on July 7th! This was ALSO 2 weeks after Baby Aaron had gotten out of the hospital! So this whole adventure was to ALSO lift his spirits up again & make sure that him & his brother had the BEST time ever!:) 

Okay, here are some close-ups! The sentiment & die tag are both from MCT's "Just Simply Live" set! I just LOVE this picture of my THREE FAVORITE men!;) Look at my hubby TRYING to make a silly face back there! lol......

Here is me w/my BEAUTIFUL boys! I just melt ALL THE time w/both of their AMAZING smiles!;) 

I just HAD to add 2 extra pictures of my boys 2 FAVORITE players! Here on the left is the "one & only" BUSTER POSY! You should of seen my boys faces when he made a homerun that night! It was simply "priceless"!;) Then of course, here are my boys again w/that BEST background of the beautiful baseball field!

Now, on the left here is my boys other FAVORITE player "the one & only" ANGEL PAGAN! The boys were SO EXCITING to see one of their FAVORITE outfielders just making the BEST plays EVER! On the right, I matted the die from "Just Simply Live" onto some black cardstock & this is where I will journal about this AMAZING night!;)

Last but not least, the night ended w/beautiful fireworks! It was hard to take this picture, but I took a picture of my boys back of their heads watching the fireworks! Talk about a PERFECT night!;)

Supplies I used:
~ Just Simply Live stamp/die set
 Inserts for my Project Life pages

Here is my video for you!:)
