Interactive Card Blog Hop Winner!

Alright so it's been a little crazy round here, lol, my almost 5 year old has been absolutely silly. He wants to start Kindergarten but he's not old enough this year, so he's driving me crazy, lol. 

Anyways, I picked the winner from the blog hop, very scientific I am, lol, went through to make sure the comment makers were followers, and then used to pick a number, and then counted through day 1 and 2 posts by time stamp to pick the right comment. Okay enough of my ramblings! 

The winner is....

Aly's Mom

Yay for you! But you didn't leave your e-mail, so you have 1 week to email me at either -or- 

If you didn't win, well keep your eyes peeled because I'll probably do a giveaway of sorts when I hit 100 followers. :-) 

Until later my fellow crafty people!

Interactive Card Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome back for day 2 of this fantastic hop! I hope you enjoyed all the projects yesterday, everyone's very talented, and I know I had a lot of fun with mine. If you're just joining us today, go to Monica's blog, she's our leader for the weekend, and everything starts there. So for day 2, I made a double pocket card.

All put together:

With tag & gift card pulled out. 
Supplies Used:
Tan cardstock by Wassau Paper 
All Patterned paper from Fine & Dandy Girl's line by MME
Ribbon from a vintage collection by Making Memories
Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge & Broken China Distress Inks

I used a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers for this card, I changed the cuts for the pocket piece a little, to cut the medium section, I cut it to 3 3/4", and to do the front section I cut an additional 1" off the first panel. You'll see what I mean if you look at the tutorial {here}.

Now I have a little blog candy, and well it's mystery blog candy. Just a little grab bag of goodies I put together. To be entered to win you need to be a follower and leave a comment telling me that you are on this post. You don't have to comment on the post from yesterday, but if you do, it will gain you one extra entry to win my blog candy. :-) 

Next up, you're gonna hop on over to Blue Crayons' blog, she made a hidden pocket card.

Interactive Card Blog Hop Day 1

Hi all and welcome to my stop on the Interactive Card Blog Hop Day 1. If you came over from Stephanie's blog, you're in the right place,  if you wandered across my blog just because, stop, and go to Monica's blog {here} she's the very beginning and the one responsible for making this happen. There are tons of different styles of cards so Monica asked a bunch of us if we'd like to show a bunch of them. Over the course of 2 days you'll see more than 20 different card styles. Some of us are doing tutorials right on our blogs for you and some of us will be linking you to the tutorials that we used ourselves(yep, I know I'm included the ladies that had never tried either of the card styles that I'm showing this weekend). Ready?

I'm showing the Double Slider today, and I'm gonna admit, this one was a challenge for me. I think it's because I didn't have the word window punch that they use in the directions, it took a little playing with but eventually I figured it out. Check out below the pictures for a link to the tutorial. 
Card Closed:

Card slid open:
supplies used: 
all cardstock from The Paper Company
flower stamps: Scrappy Cat Studios
get well soon stamp: My Pink Stamper Everyday Life Set
markers for coloring: Bic Mark It's
memento rich cocoa ink pad for stamping. 
3-d foam squares from Therm-o-Web 
and the pink scotch atg gun. 

Tutorial {here}

So I guess it all worked out. The card does what it's supposed to do, which is the point right? lol, though I'm pretty sure I'll be getting that punch before I attempt this again! I'm glad I tried it though, I was definitely a little intimidated at first. I generally keep my cards VERY simple so this was a new ball game for me. Anyways, next up, you get to visit Heather {here}, and she's gonna show you a pop up twirl card. Guess I should check that out too, it intrigues me. :-) *See below for full blog line up*

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you liked it, be sure to comment/follow if you like my stuff. I'll be posting more soon. 

Happy blog hopping weekend!

My Cricut Craft Room's Card & Invitation Blog Hop

Welcome to the Card & Invitation Blog Hop hosted by Erica at My Cricut Craft Room. If you're just stumbling upon my blog start at the beginning {HERE}, this will get you to Erica's blog and let you know all the requirements for the blog hop candy. Here we go!

So I'm completely unsure what I'm using this card for yet, but I like it. It measures 4" x 8". The base is a die cut sheet from the 8 x 8 pack of patterned paper from the Dilly Dally line by Making Memories. The plaid & butterfly print are also from that line, I manipulated a bracket shape on my Gypsy so that it would mimic the shape. Not sure which cartridge it ended up being off of. The ribbon is by Making Memories also it's from a vintage line, grosgrain with a ruffled edge. The yellow flower is a sticker from the Making Memories Chloe's Closet line and the stick pins are from that line also. The "Live. Laugh. Love." stamp on the bottom right corner is from My Pink Stamper's Pink-a-licious set. Stamped with Rich Cocoa by Memento.
