Chrissy's Strawberry Thank You

The layout is based on MoJo Monday Sketch 82. Paper is My Minds Eye and border punch is Martha Stewart. Strawberry was cut from Indie Art. Diamonds are cut from Nesties. They are actually squares turned sideways. Ribbon from my stash. The flower is Prima with a brad center. Sentiment is Studio G stamp.

Stacy's Fruit Challenge

Ok, so I came up with this challenge because so much of what I have been doing is fruit related lately. I have been on a popsicle card kick (see them on my blog) and then my cousin's fiancee decided that the theme for her wedding shower is going to be pears. Therefore, I am making 80 of these little bags and placecards shown in the pictures below to hold the shower gift. They are all going to be in different shades of yellow/gold and green. The big pear cutouts from this bag and the placecard cutouts are all Home Accents. The little tag on the bag is from Joys of the Season with a rectangle from George and Basic Shapes cut out of it. TFL and hope you enjoy!

Mindy's Fruit Challenge

The watermelon from Stretch Your Imagination is perfect for this little pixie to sit on. I used Basic Grey's Lime Rickey paper to add a summery feel and topped it off with a juicy watermelon border.

Bling Challenge by LilGreenBug

This is my project for the bling challenge. The image is from Faerie Song and is my first project using Copic markers. I still have a lot to learn, but it is a fun process. For the bling, I used Stickles (thanks, design team!), iridescent glitter glue, 4 rhinestones, sparkly Prima flowers and the dangling stars were in a treasure box from team mate, Lacy Gilbertson. (Note to Cheryll or Stacy: If I posted this wrong, please feel free to make corrections)

June 1st Challenge-BLING!

For June 1 I challenged the team to create some BLING! Here is what we've come up with. Won't you play along with us! Show us some BLING!

For my card I used a digi image from Lily-Boo's Boutique and colored with my prisma pencils. The snail is a Studio G stamp and the sentiment is one I've had in my stash. I've added stickles to the roses and butterfly (which is actually cut again, colored and pot dotted). Pot dotted the snail also and added 3 little gems from my stash. Hope you like!


I made these favor boxes for the girls' second birthday party yesterday. I used a whole bottle of Stickles on 20 little boxes so they were very sparkly but I couldn't get them to photograph well, no matter what I tried.


For this bling challenge I used a Tilda image from Magnolia Stamps. The mushroom she is sitting on is also from Magnolia. To add the bling factor, I used bling cardstock, glittered cardstock, stickled on top of the bling and the glitter, and added a little shine to the Tilda herself as well. I hope the bling shows up enough in the photo. I really tried to got all out with bling on this one.


Not a whole lot of bling but does it really take that much to call it bling? See the little gems on her hat! Isn't she just the cutest image. Reminds me that summer is here!

Ok, there are a lot of pictures for this one - this is my first layout using skittles so I am very excited about it. My other bling for this challenge are the eyelets and glitter letters, which are a little difficult to see in the picture.
