So this is the last challenge for Pink By Design's Anniversary Party. Okay, so there's one during the Live UStream tonight, but I don't know anything about that yet, so, on to the project.
We had to make a project using something in our home as inspiration. I chose a bottle of body spray from Bath & Body Works, I just got it, I haven't even put it in my bathroom yet, lol, but the bottle label is really pretty, all bright colors & leopard print. So here's my project:
It's so hard to get a good picture of this card, but I did the card with 5 shades of Glimmer Mist(1 for the leopard print, 4 for the gradient colors), it looks so cool in real life. I'll have to try and take another picture tomorrow when the sun is out. :-)
So Challenge #11 is something that I NEVER do. A single layer card. I never do single layers, it's always multiple layers of paper, pop dots, etc... All we were allowed was 1 sheet of paper, whatever stamps we were going to use and inks. So here it is.
Sorry for the huge picture, but it's pretty much the only way for you to see all my snow dots. I feel like it should have a warning label. "Warning: This card contains massive amounts of Stickles. Don't look at it in direct sunlight.". Sound like a good one? lol. I had fun and learned I can NOT stamp straight to save my life. Everything is always a little crooked, but eh, proves it was hand made by me. :-)
So challenge #9 is to use buttons. Oh, I've got a lot of those, I love using them, but I don't use them on anything I'm going to mail, I know a very cute little girl with a birthday coming up though and we're going to her party so this is for her. :-)
Alright, I'm off for a bit, my stomach is ready to eat itself since I haven't fed it all day so I'm going to do that and I'll be back after a bit. :-)
So Challenge #4 was to use a silhouette, this is what I came up with:
And Challenge #5 was to use ombre. Now that I'm well acquainted with, we used this for the July CropChocolate DT theme. So here's my project. The cupcakes in the background are is the cupcake PBD background stamp.
Hi there, so this is my project for Challenge #2 over at Pink by Design. It's their 2 year anniversary today and they're having challenges all day. Challenge #2 was to make a project for your favorite holiday, and Christmas is mine. I think my birthday being Christmas Eve has something to do with it. :-)
Hi there! Welcome to the CropChocolate.com Design Team Banner Blog Hop! If you got here from Miwa's blog, you're in the right place. If you just stumbled across my blog today, start back at Amber's blog and follow along with us. There is blog candy along the way, and a prize from CropChocolate.com too!
So this is my project:
I'm not going to give all of the details here, it was a ton of steps, so I'll do a detailed post after the blog hop is all done, but this is for my son's room. Here's the close ups:
CC Products Used:
a TON of MM Just Chillin' Boys Paper
Ranger Stickles "Goldenrod"
Non CC Products:
Kraft Cardstock(The Paper Company)
Random Ribbon from my stash.
I was really nervous that this project was going to look too girly for his room(he's 5 1/2 years old now), but the Just Chillin' papers worked great! He'll love it for sure when he gets home from his camping trip!
So next up on the hop is Jenni so make sure you go check her project out, but before you go,
I have some mystery blog candy to give away.
To get a chance at the blog candy you need to:

Close to My Heart & Cricut have out done themselves! They have come out with a new cartridge that's only available through Close to My Heart, it's called Artiste, and it's A-MAZ-ING! I love it and am going to have to get it as soon as it's released in August! Tons more 3-D projects, cards, phrases, some more 3-D flowers, cupcake wrappers and more. I hear there will also be 15(I think... I'll double check that once I see the new book in person) stamp sets that coordinate with it. The link to see the handbook is up online HERE. Check it out, if you'd like it, pre-order now through me(contact me by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org) for 15% off. The bundle comes with Artiste, 3 stamp sets & 3 9" x 12" sheets of dimensional accents(chipboard pieces) that work with the cartridge. To get the pre-order price you must email me. Any pre-orders will be submitted as soon as the new catalog goes live.
And if you haven't gotten Art Philosophy yet, well, it's your lucky time. If you order Art Philosophy when you pre-order Artiste, I'll give you 20% off on Art Philosophy. You could get them both for $165 plus shipping. It's normally $99 for just one. :-)
Okay, last one. I have no more time because we're leaving for camping in 2 1/2 hours and I haven't packed yet! Eek! I should really get on that but since I can't craft for the next 4 days I wanted to get some more crafty time in, darn it!
So CropChocolate.com had a weekend gathering called Spring Fling last weekend for their customers, and lots of us weren't able to go, so some of the lovely ladies decided to have a blog hop with challenges. We could combine 3 challenges into 1 project if we wanted to, so here's my first project...
This is for the challenges on clayton528, Scrappy Canuck & Karey2005's blogs. Clayton528 challenged us to make something that reminds us of spring, Scrappy Canuck gave us 1/2 hour to make a card & Karey2005 directed us to use something from nature. :-) This is a pretty simple card for me, I just embossed the main cardstock, and then embossed 2 more colors with the same folder & fussy cut them, and then added some stickles.
