Happy Summer!

Hello, my crafty friends! Whoosh… another month GONE! Can you believe it?! Our September challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #113 – Anything Goes! We are being sponsored this month by DRS Designs so come on over and play with us for a chance to win a prize! I created a sweet CAS Happy Summer card using Watermelon and Friend from DRS Designs. This has to be one of the cutest stamps ever!


I stamped the image in black in the bottom right corner of the top layering panel and watercolored it using my Niji water brush. Once it was dry, I layered the panel on coordinating cardstock and then onto the card base which I had cut with a scalloped edge punch for a little interest.


I created the inside sentiment on the computer and layered the panel on the coordinating cardstock. Loving how this turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Watermelon Wonder cardstock
Stamps: Watermelon and Friend rubber stamp
Ink: Stampin’ Up Watermelon Wonder and Garden Green ink; Spectrum Noir- EB2, EB7
Dies/Punches: Stampin’ Up Scalloped Edge Punch
Accessories:  Tim Holtz stamp platform, Niji Water Brush, Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and will link up an ‘anything goes’ project with us this month! That particular theme is definitely a crowd-pleaser!

Owl Notes (post-it note pad holder)

Hi everyone! I’m still in shock over it being September 1st already! Not much longer until Christmas, lol! The September challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #26 – September Anything Goes! I mentioned last month that I created three post-it note pad holders for a friend last Christmas and they were so much fun that I decided to make more this year. This one with the owls is the second of the three I made. Next month I’ll share the third one! These are super easy to mass produce and the possibilities for decorating them are endless!


I used Stampin’ Up papers and stamps along with a sheet of Dare 2B Artzy paper from which those adorable owls were fussy cut. So cute!


Here’s a shot with the holder open revealing the post-it note pad.


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Paper Accents 120# Kraft cardstock, Stampin’ Up Basic Gray cardstock, Stampin’ Up Moonlight and Irresistibly Yours DSP, Dare 2B Artzy Owls & Flowers double-sided paper

Ink: Stmapin’ Up Smoky Slate ink, Memento Tuxedo Black ink

I hope you’ve enjoyed this second post-it note pad holder in my series and will stay tuned to see the third one next month! Be sure to link up an anything goes project with us this month – we’d love to see what you’re working on! Thanks so much for stopping by and we’ll see you next time! ;)
