May Outlawz Challenge

It's time for another challenge at The Outlawz Anything Goes In a Card Free Zone!  The optional theme for May is "Flowers" .  

I recently bought this frame at a yard sale and just knew it needed me to fix it up a little. lol
It was already painted white and distressed so that made it really easy.

I cut some hearts out of Cricut heavy chipboard and painted them.  For the biggest heart I cut "Family" in white vinyl.  The greenery and flowers came from Dollar Tree.


I added some pictures from Easter and hung it on the wall!  Super easy renovation!  



 Thanks for checking in and I really hope you will join us over at The Outlawz!  We have different several challenges you can join but we sure would like to see you in our Anything Goes in a Card Free Zone!  LOTS of inspiration there from the Design Team!

Good morning!  I had intended to post a couple more projects before now, but life got in the way.  So today I'm sharing my announcement that I had mentioned before.  I'm on the design team for The Outlawz Anything Goes in a Card Free Zone!  

I was on a team for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday group several years ago and just entered a phase of life where I had to give up all my design team positions.  Now I'm excited to be back!  These challenges post on the first Saturday each month and run for the rest of the month.  Challenges are always Anything Goes, with optional themes.  But please remember it is a card free zone.

For April, our optional theme is Numbers.  I made this little corner bookmark with cardstock scraps.  
Using my Cricut, I made two hexagon shapes and connected them with a small rectangle.  For the top piece I used a smaller hexagon with the print-then-cut feature.  I folded the whole thing and glued it on the right side and there you go.
Now in all honesty, this was supposed to be a magnetic fold over bookmark, but I found out that my magnets are pretty weak and won't hold through the paper.  Soooo, corner bookmark it is!

I hope you'll join us over at  The Outlawz Anything Goes in a Card Free Zone this month and I thank you for stopping by my blog!

I'm Finally Back! And with an Easter Project!

 Wow!  It's been a LOOONG time since I've been here!  Life has been crazy busy, lots of changes and adjustments, but I'm ready to do some design team work again.  When it's all set up, I'll be able to announce it here.  

Meanwhile, here is a fun project I made for Easter!  


This is an old ceiling fan blade that is 17" long.  I used a sheet of scrapbook paper and modgepodge.  I put the paper on at an angle to cover as much of the blade as I could, then used a scrap of it to cover the bottom piece.  The seam showed more than I liked, so I added the plastic grass to disguise it.


Isn't this bunny a cutie?!?!  I made the base with circles and ovals.  The face, feet and ear outlines came from Cricut Design Space.  The hands I made with ovals welded together and then used the offset feature to make the outlines. 

I love making these bows!  Mainly because I struggle with a regular bow.  lol  But I'm still working on getting better at those!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you here much more often!  Don't forget, I have a big Design Team announcement coming!

"Oh Happy Day" Sliding Card

Today I have a sweet little card to share with you for our new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week we are sponsored by Lawn Fawn and our theme is "Interactive Card".  

This isn't the card I had originally planned, but it's what I ended up with and I think it came out kinda cute, so it worked out after all!  It has 2 slides, just for added fun.  lol


Our awesome sponsor provided some of their sweet product for us and I used their "Hello Sunshine" set.  I received a set of clear stamps and dies to cut out all the shapes.  I loved this set!!!  Thank you Lawn Fawn!!!!

I hope you'll join us!

Rise and Shine Birthday Card

Hi!  Today I'm sharing a fun card I made for my husband to give to a friend.  I used vinyl for the image and the sentiment inside.  

The inside sentiment is a Cricut cut that is perfect for the image I used:


This is also my DT card for Tuesday Throwdown.  This week we are sponsored by our very own Kim of Lily Patch Boutique!    Our challenge theme is the ever popular "Anything Goes", so we should be seeing a lot of you!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stained Glass Frame Card

Good morning!  Today we have a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is "Embossing" and our sponsor is
 http://www.drsdesigns.com/

I have a little card front I've made with  our sponsor's "Stained Glass" image.  After coloring it, I mounted it on an embossed frame stamp from Just Rite stamps.

I'm thinking this will be a sympathy card, but still deciding for sure. 

I hope you'll join us this week at Tuesday Throwdown!

Winter Sparkle at Tuesday Throwdown

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Let's start off the 2019 with a new fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  We are sponsored this week by 

and our theme is "Winter Sparkle".  Now who doesn't love a little sparkle on their projects??

I love snowmen and our sponsor provided this sweet boy that I chose to work with:


He's called "Country Snowman" and I've colored him with Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment is a Cricut cut that originally said "Snow Much Fun" and I added the Thank You with a Cricut Font.  I already closed out the program and don't remember the name of the font, though!  It doesn't really show up well, but all the words are cut from glitter paper.  The ribbon also has shiny silver and glitter snowflakes on it.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join us!!!
