Seasons Greetings Christmas Challenge DT

Hi everyone! I have another tidbit of great news to share… I’ve been invited to join the brand new Seasons Greetings Christmas Challenge DT! Woo-hoo! I’m really looking forward to creating with these talented ladies!

Our challenges will go live on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, with Team Kangaroo showcasing their Christmas creations on the second Tuesday and Team Koala (my team) showcasing theirs on the fourth Tuesday of each month. All challenges are Anything Goes and there will always be an optional twist that you can follow if you want – they are there to inspire to you and are not mandatory to participate in the challenge. With two challenges per month, what an absolutely wonderful way to get all your Christmas cards knocked out of the way before Christmas!

The older I get the more I love Christmas and what it means. I typically love creating cards with lots of layers and my big signature bows. My goal this year is to make Christmas cards with less dimension that are easier to mail and not require additional postage. I’m really looking forward to having all my cards made ahead of time which will definitely minimize holiday stress. I’m also looking forward to using rubber/clear stamps in my stash for my creations.

Our first challenge will launch on February 14th. My first project will showcase on February 28th, so stay tuned! I hope you’re as excited as I am! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you soon! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week! This is my very first crafty post on my new blog and I couldn’t be more stoked! I realize it’ll be a while before all my blogger friends find me here but I’m still excited and hope it won’t take too long. It was definitely time to make a switch and I wanted something cheerful and fun, so I created this blog (named after my beloved Love To Scrap!) in some pretty bright colors! Our newest challenge at Let’s Craft and Create began on the 5th and I’m happy to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #121 – Things With Wings! I created a monochrome friendship card in shades of teal with a pop of black.

I used coordinating Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, papers and cardstock, and colored the flowers with matching Spectrum Noir markers. Can you believe there’s no big bow?! LOL

My first spinner card! I stamped the dragonfly on the spinner and colored the wings with clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.

Dragonflies are so majestic and beautiful – right up there with butterflies in my opinion. I really enjoyed creating this card and love how it turned out.

I’m here!

Hi everyone! I finally made the decision to migrate over to WordPress. It’s been about 5-6 months since I started toying with the idea. So now comes the task of learning how to navigate WordPress and convincing my Peeps to come over to meet me here! Hopefully it won’t take too long… I’ll be back soon with an official crafty post!

Scrappy hugs!
