Scrappy Mom Stamps June Stamp Release & KaDoodle Bug Designs Christmas in July Challenge

Hello Crafters~

Today is the start of the new KaDoodle Bug Designs bi-weekly challenge and I'm the one hosting it.   My favorite time of year is Christmas.  I love all the decorations and making little gifts to give to my friends.   Christmas is just under 6 months away, so the new challenge is to make any project with a KaDoodle Bug Designs file and share it with us on the KaDoodle Bug Designs Challenge Facebook page.  

For my project I made a Christmas box with the Santa Feet from KaDoodle Bug Designs "Christmas Feet" file sticking out of the chimney and accented it with the "Have a very Merry Christmas" sentiment from the brand new "Writing on the Wall" stamp set by Scrappy Moms Stamps.  

Here is my project

 Just in case you haven't seen the new sets from Scrappy Moms Stamps here are pictures of them. 

Card Recipe:
  • Santa Feet from KaDoodle Bug Designs "Christmas Feet" file
  • Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps brand new "Writing on the Wall" stamp set.
  • White on Santa's boots accented with Marvy Liquid Applique (Color=white)
  • Snow from KaDoodle Bug Designs "Merry Christmas Skates" file
  • Snow covered with Doodlebug Design Sugar Coating Lilly White Glitter.
  • Box from Silhouette Store - Design #60602 - modified a bit.
  • Sides pieces embossed with Sizzix Tim Holtz Bricked Embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Crafting

Retirement Card

Hello Crafters~

Today I'm sharing with you a retirement card I made for my co-worker who's retiring this Friday.  (I'm so jelly)

When I was searching the internet for retirement card ideas I found a card that had a squirrel and a cute saying and I thought "Oooh I can make that using the KaDoodle Bug Designs Cutie KaToodles - Nut Tree Squirrel".  :)

I'm super excited on how this turned out.   I'm just in love with it and if I hadn't written his name and signed it I might have kept it for myself.   
It will go on my "Utmost Favorite Cards" list.  

Without further delay, here are several pictures of my squirrel retirement card.   
Be sure to check out the card recipe after the pictures.

  • Banner from Silhouette Store "Banner, flower & frame" ~ Design No. 59914

Hello Crafters~


I'm so excited that today I'm one of the Design Team members that has one of the two secret words for the Scrappy Moms Stamps birthday giveaway. 

I will give the secret word after I share a card I made using a sentiment from the newly released Anchors Away stamp set.  :)

I'm not a sailor so I don't know how to tie any nautical type knots so I went on line and watched a YouTube video to figure out how to tie this knot.  Thought it added a different element to my card.  More details regarding this card are listed under the card recipe below. 

Card Recipe:
  • Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps "Anchors Away" stamp set.
  • Card Base is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Corners rounded with EX Success 1" corner rounder.
  • Pattern paper is from the Carta Bella - Ahoy There 6"x6"  paper pad that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo. 
  • Boat is from a company that is no longer in business. 

Ok... I think I've tortured you enough...Are you ready for my secret word??

The secret word is "STAMP"!

Be sure to visit today's other Secret Word Design Team Member Corri and then go to Scrappy Moms Stamps blog and leave a comment with both secret words on today's post (6/20/15) for a chance to win today's prize of the day. 

Scrappy Moms Stamps is also having a buy 3 get 1 free sale for their birthday.   Sale ends June 28, 2015.    See the Scrappy Moms Stamps, Friday, June 19th post for details.

Scrappy Moms Stamps June 2015 Stamp Release & Happy 5th Birthday Celebration

Happy Friday Crafters,

Two Exciting News Items regarding Scrappy Moms Stamps~

 First Announcement:
Today two marvelous stamps sets are being released.  I know I say this every time but these are awesome sentiments. 

The two new sets are:

"Anchors Away" and "Writing on the Wall"

I chose to use a sentiment from the Anchors Away because I wanted to use the Pirate Minion I received for free from doing a special blog hop with SVG Cutting Files. 

Card Recipe:
  • Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamp NEW "Anchors Away" set
  • Card base is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Background is from a company that is no longer in business called Designs on Cloud Nine.  
  • Minion Pirate from SVG Cutting Files 2015 Minion Blog Hop (Sorry, this file was only available if you did their blog hop and is not available for purchase.)
