Create a Card Challenge At Cardz Tv

Mary at Cardz Tv issued a challenge to not use our cricuts and use some things you have in your stash. I used paper and stickers from the DCWV Autumn Splendor paper pack. I enjoyed making this card and loved the fall colors in this paper pack. Join in her challenge by clicking on the above link.

Another Challenge for me this week!

This is my entry for the Mojo Monday challenge #158. I love using sketches and this was a fun one to use. I used paper from a DCWV Fall stack, bazzill cardstock and a stamped image from a stamp I got from DRS Designs. I also colored the image with copic markers. If you would like to join the challenge, just click on their name and it will take you right there.

Card Patterns Challenge #83

Here is my card for Card Patterns sketch challenge #83 this week. I got into my stash and got some papers out to use. This is an old Chatterbox Christmas paper and I used both sides of it. I used my circle spellbinders for the circles and a stamped image from DRS Designs, colored it with Copic Markers. I just added a grosgrain bow to finish it off and popped up the Poinsettia image. I also used my Stampin Up border punch for the center piece. This was a fast and easy card and using a sketch makes it go really fast! Now to go work on another challenge!

This weeks challenge #60 over at Paper Cutz this week is to make a layout, card or paper craft using any image stamped or cricut of a critter. I choose to use Animal Kingdom for the layout of my granddaughter Peytons visit to the Petting Zoo at the Cincinnati Zoo. I am working on the companion page of this layout, but am not finished yet. The papers I used were Bazzill cardstock and some older Chatterbox I had in my stash. Please stop over to Paper Cutz this week and join in our challenge.

Some new challenges this week.

I decided to get into a couple more challenges this week even though I am really busy trying to catch up a couple years I am behind in scrapbooking! Not sure I will ever catch up, but we will see. At least I will never run out of things to do. This first card is for Card Patterns sketch #82. Just click on their name above and have some fun with the sketch. My mother-in-law had open heart surgery yesterday so this is a card I made for her. I just used scraps for it. This next card is for Mojo Mondays #157 weekly sketch. I chose some Fall papers I got in a stack at Joann's. I usually do not do fall cards, but loved this paper. I participated in a mini autumn album swap and used this stack so these were some leftover scraps.

Paper Cutz Challenge #59

This challenge was really a challenge for me! Come on over to Paper Cutz and join the fun of this weeks challenge. Make a card, layout, or craft project for Halloween using any colors you like EXCEPT, NO orange or black. For me, this was fun. I had some paper that a friend had given me a stack of that was Halloween and it is had this purple and lime green paper. I used the Mini Monsters for the cutouts of the monster and ghost. They are popped up on the side of the bag and I used stickles on the title and the eyes of the cut outs. The title was also from Mini Monsters. Follow the link above and join in the fun this week!

Paper Cutz Challenge #58

Happy Friday! Hope everyone is going to have a super weekend. Stop on over to Paper Cutz and join this weeks challenge. Your challenge is to use a tag or tags anyway you want! It is a great, but simple challenge so please join in the fun! I decided to do my challenge in the form of a mini tag album with pictures of my granddaughter Peyton's first birthday. I used bright primary colors and used several images from the Doodlecharms cartridge. It was a simple album that I folded the 6 x 12 paper into 3 inch sections and cut the top to a tag form and decorated the front and back. I just used paper and stickers that were in my stash and this is a easy way to use up some old things and still create something special. I hope you like my tag book! Please follow the link above and join this challenge!

Paper Cutz Challenge #57

This is my first week participating for the Paper Cutz Design Team and for Challenge #57 you make a card, layout,or craft project using 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, and 3 colors on any theme you like. I used Close to my Heart Felicity papers, two patterns with oranges, greens, browns and creams. I also used green cardstock and rust cardstock. I used two brown buttons on top of two clear buttons that I covered with the plaid paper in the layout. I used a brown grosgrain ribbon to finish it off. I used two cricut cartridges for the cuts. The title was used with the Pooh Font, and the turkey with Doodlecharms. This is my granddaughter Mary-Kate at Thanksgiving last year helping with stuffing the turkey and adding the spices. She loves to help out in the kitchen, but will stop and give the model pose with taking pictures. Please follow this link to Paper Cutz and join in this weeks challenge. Please check my blog on Friday to see my project and I can't wait to see what you do with challenge too!!!
