Dream Big

When I first saw this weeks Mojo Challenge, I immediately thought of the Stampin Up postage stamp punch. So easy to punch out each square from my printed paper from Creative Memories Enchanted Kit  and place on black card stock. The flower and Dream scalloped circle are also made with Stampin Up punches.
Sentiments are computer generated on white card stock, punched out or handcrafted,  as I did with the little tag. fashioned a  twine bow and adhered all  with pop dots.,

Mojo Monday Challenge #237

This  card is for the newest challenge from Mojo Monday.
I used scraps of paper that I had on hand, popped up Creative Memories Fabulous Paper Buttons, and  added stick on pearls for the centers. The gold flower and Happy Birthday lettering are Starform text lettering.

Mojo Monday Challenge #236

I used paper, flowers, embellishments from the Enchanted package for scrap booking from Creative Memories. I layered the card stock from white to black to white before adding the colored paper. It was very easy to select what colors to use as everything coordinates so well. The ribbon is some I had on hand and was made using the Bow Easy.
I have been collecting their templates every week for several years but only recently began posting to the weekly challenges. I have also used these layouts in my scrap booking.

Granddaughter's Card

I am sharing  the card our 8 yr old granddaughter gave us for Easter. She put her pink thumbprint on white cardstock, drew the details and stamped the Happy Easter sentiment. I like the way she cut the white cardstock using wavy edge cutting tools from Ceative Memories.  Her mother is a First Grade teacher and Creative Memories consultant which gives her lots of  inspiration. She also make yellow chicks on a card for her Aunt's card.  She loves to do all sorts of crafts and will be so pleased that I am showing her card on my blog.

Easter Treats

I have seen these bunny faces on several Stampin Up consultants blogs  and thought these would be perfect for my granddaughter's 3rd grade class. Cut the following, using the Stampin Up punches; two large white ovals, two small pink ovals, one  l 3/4" white  circle,  two  1/2"  white circles, one 1/4" pink circle and two 1/4"  black circles. I cut VERY thin strips of black cardstock for the whiskers ( or you can draw then on) Assemble and set aside.

I made the box from a piece of cardstock measuring 10" x 3", scored at one inch down the long side then at 2", 4", 6" and 8" on the width side. Cut away the first 2" x 1" area, then cut a v-shape wedge at the 2,4,6 & 8 inch score lines up to  the  one inch score line.

Before assembling my box, I used the Longaberger small market basket stamp with Color Box "Cocoa" ink to stamp the basketweave design on all four sides of the box. Fold on all score lines and glue tabs to form the box. Add the bunny face, put in a small amount of green grass in the basket and fill with candies

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Spring!!
