A Simple Thank You

Hi everyone, it's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I have a simple card to share with you today.  Of course, I used one of Tara's amazing stamp sets to create my project!  Here it is:




I decided to make a very simple card that showcases the sentiment.  A quick run through my Big Shot with an embossing folder, add some pretty ribbon and voila!  A lovely card that only took me a few minutes to make.  Below is a close up of the sentiment, so you can see how perfect the font is.




I used "Say It Big" stamp set to create this project.  You can buy your own in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.



Be sure to stop by Craftin Desert Divas everyday.  There is always something going on, from Linky Parties, to Blog Hops, from Stamp Releases to Inspiration!  See you there :)

3D Project - PDE Linky Party

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's linky party day over at Pause Dream Enjoy.  Today, Janis challenged us to make a 3D project!!  Here is what I created:


I decided to make a cute birthday bag.  I have the Gift Bag Maker from We R Memory Keepers, and used it to make this cute bag.  The little label is from Craftin Desert Divas "Tag It" set, and I used the coordinating SVG.  The sentiment is from CDD's "Simply Said".



The challenge starts today.  Please hop over to Pause Dream Enjoy, see what the rest of the Design Divas came up with, and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Moochas Gracias

Happy Sunday everyone!  I am popping on today to share a quick little project I made with my Craftin Desert DIvas Stamps.  It is the third in my little series of cow projects.  I am having so much fun making them!  Here it is:



Are you loving it??  I know I am.  The cute little cow is from SVG Cutting Files Chibi Kids as Farm Animals.  I inked the edges of the white with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I embossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  The paper is mostly from Recollections, though the patterned paper is OLD Creative memories.  The ribbon and the enamel dots are both from Michaels.  Here is the stamp set I used to create this project:



Don't you LOVE the sentiment??  It is so cute :)  It is part of the Simply Moovelous stamp set, and I am so enjoying making these cute cow projects.  I still have one more cow project to share with you, so keep your eyes open for it!

Holy Cow!

Happy Sunday everyone!  I am popping on today to share a quick little project I made With my Craftin Desert Divas stamps.  Last week, I promised you more cute cow projects, and here is project number two:



Are you loving it??  I know I am!  I picked up this cute little box in the Silhouette Store design # 55807.  It was very easy to cut and put together.  The paper is all from Recollections and the twine is from Doodlebug Designs.  Here is a close up of the little tag, before I tell you all about it:



The tag is one of the SVG files from Craftin Desert Divas.  It coordinates with her AMAZING "Tag It" stamp set.  So, after cutting out the shape and then I stamped the tag shape, and then stamped my super cute cow sentiment from "Simply Moovelous".  It was super easy and I LOVE how it turned out!



Be sure to pop over to the Craftin Deset Divas Shop HERE, you can see all of Tara's cute stamps and pick some up for yourself!  I will have a few more cute cow projects in the next couple of weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out for them!

From Our House to Yours

Hi everyone, it's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I have a super cute project to share with you today.  

I am sure you all saw the Christmas Tags  that I made over the past couple of months.  I made over two hundred tags this year, giving most of them away in sets as gifts.  I decided that this year, I would do one to two sets of Christmas Tags each month.  Hopefully allowing me to get plenty done before the Christmas season.  Today I will share the first set of tags for Christmas 2015.  Of course, I used TWO of Tara's amazing stamp sets to create my tags!  Here it is:


Isn't that a cute tag?!  The tag itself is from Craftin Desert Divas "Tag It" stamp set.  I used the SVG files that coordinate with the set to cut the tags, and I offset it in my Silhouette software to create the shadow.  I just love this tag, it's the perfect size!  And in keeping with my goal to use my Cricut more, the house is from the Jolly Holidays Cricut cartridge.


Below is a close up of the sentiment, so you can see how perfect the font is.


The stamp sets I used to create this project are Tag It and Baked With Love.  You can buy your own in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.

Have a Moovelous Day

Happy Sunday everyone!  I am popping on today to share a quick little project I made with my Craftin Desert Divas stamps.  I have always LOVED cows, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on Tara's "Simply Moovelous" stamp set.  

One of my New Years Resolutions - at least my crafty one, is not to spend money on more "stuff" - well except paper and adhesives - unless I absolutely HAVE to.  So, I am trying to use my Cricut more - I have TONS of cartridges and my Gypsy girl still functions and I have always loved her, so I am determined to use her more.  So, with that in mind, here is what I created:



Isn't it cute??  Create a Critter is one of my favorite cartridges.  I love all the cute, simple animals on it.  I decided this cow was the perfect way to showcase this cute sentiment.  The sun is also from a Cricut Cartridge.  It is from Doodlecharms, and was my "go to" sun.  I actually have a little bag of these pre-cut in my craft room.  It's been a while since I used them.  The paper is mostly Recollections except the patterned paper, which was a freebie I found online.  I did some doodling, and VOILA!  A super cute cow card to start the year off right.

Here is the stamp set I built this project around.  Isn't it awesome?  I love all the cute sentiments and I think those cows are adorable!!  I am going to be making a few more projects with this set in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for more cuteness!  If you LOVE this set as much as I do, you can pick your own up HERE.



A challenge or two for my card:
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Divas by Design - anything goes
The Paper Shelter - anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes
Eureka Stamps - something old (cricut cart) something new (stamp set)
