Sticky Boy

This past spring I sent a valentine to Sticky Boy back at Home Office of CTMH as part of a contest.  From those Valentines that were received 10 were selected to win a Sticky Boy!!! My card was one of those cards.  Since Sticky Boy really only appears at Close to My Heart Convention, I decided it would only be appropriate to bring him with me.  I designed this badge to wear while I was at Convention in hopes of finding him. Or at least celebrate those lucky few who did find him.

Stickyboy ~ Ctmh convention 2016 ~ Catscrapbooking.comTo make him I used the awesome Magical paper pack which is perfect for celebrating Disney!!

I am now home from convention and all I can say is WOW!!! I am so excited for all the fun and new goodies that will be coming your way August 1st.  I will be working behind the scenes to make some fabulous artwork with these new products. I can show you some sneak peeks on my Instagram account but will not be able to share anything here until August.

Happy Crafting!

Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop ~ Magical &/or Mini Albums

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!!  The Stampers with an Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  For this hop the Stampers with an Attitude are going to be showcasing art work with the Magical paper pack and/or Mini Albums.

If you are just starting here or hopping here from WENDY TAYLOR’S Blog  then you are in the right spot.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultant at the end of my blog.

I so love the bright colors of the Magical papers and they work well for Disney themed layouts. Which on a side note is where I am currently, as I am attending the Close to My Heart annual convention in Disney World this year.  Magical paper pack also works well for other layouts too as here it is for the Fourth of July. This is my 25th layout of my personal layout challenge.

Color Dare #199 ~ Cranberry, Pacifica, Sunset and White Daisy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #199 we are challenging you to combine CRANBERRY, PACIFICA, SUNSET and WHITE DAISY.

Color Dare #199 Blog Badge

I have to admit I as sort of stumped with what to do for this color combination. I wanted to maybe do flowers but was not sure because I kept wanting to go for greens and black.  Then I had an idea…. What about using ink, spray pens and my blocks and create my one background…. Perfect!!

Color Dare #199 ~ It's Your Day ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo for this card I inked up the block then spritzed it with some water then stamped it on my cardstock. It was interesting as the Cranberry and Sunset looked quite similar when stamped in this way.

Here is the list of supplies used:

  • Cranberry and White Daisy Cardstock
  • Cranberry, Pacifica, and Sunset ink
  • Twine form my stash
  • Enamel and Glitter Duos Blue Dots
  • Say it all C1632

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #199 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 30, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

Apron Cards

I started on a new adventure two months ago.  I was introduce or should I say reintroduced to Wildtree earlier this year.  We have been so blown away by the meals we have been preparing and I knew I needed to sign up.  It has been an exciting journey helping people find new, healthy and simple dinner solutions.  I love the fact that Wildtree is an all-natural and certified Organic company that offers a wide variety of herbs, spices, marinades, dressings, soups, breads and more.  I decided to design some thank you cards for my customers.

Jubilee apron Card ~ Grilling card ~ CatScrapbooking.com

This on is was designed using a retired paper pack Jubilee.

Wildtree thank you notes ~ Apron Card ~ Penelope ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis one was designed using Penelope which was also recently retired. The cut file is an SVG file I found on the Silhouette store. I love these cards and they are perfect for my new business.  Please let me know if you would like more information about Wildtree and if I can help you with your meal time dilemmas.

Happy Crafting!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Letter M

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “M”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “M” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DARLYS RECKER’S Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

I suspect we will have a lot of MAGICAL participants in this hop.  Close to My Heart came out with a really fun paper pack named MAGICAL which will work well for anyone who has been to Disney!!  However this paper pack can really be used for anything as it is just fun with bright primary colors (check back on my blog over the next weekend).  I have been putting off doing my Disneyland photos and finally have the motivation to complete them.  I have to admit I totally lifted this layout from Pinterest and you can see my inspiration here.  This layout also keeps me on track with my personal layout challenge and brings me to layout #24.

Disneyland ~ Magical Layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I used the following:

Now it is time to hop on over to LAUREN MOORE’S BLOG and see what she has created for you today.

I really like these color combination but was perplexed on what to create.  I went to Pinterest for inspiration.  I stumbled on this card which was my inspiration.  I then went to my Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to create my background. I used #M3CEA5 Circle stars and using the slice and weld tools combined it with #M42EB0 Rectangle frame.
