Scraptastical Kreations DT Project #68

Good Afternoon! We have had a busy day today, so I am just getting into my crafty space to post my Scraptastical Kreations DT project!

I used the "Witchy Night" file that you can find at Halloween is coming up soon and it is my FAVORITE holiday. I love the bright purples, greens and oranges together.

The sentiment for my card is from Cardz TV Stamps - "Spooky Sayings" and the face is from Peachy Keen Stamps (PK-486) "In Stitches".

Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll see you here again in a few days =)

CardzTV STAMPS ~ I'm on the Design Team!

Welcome! This is my first official post being on the Design Team for CardzTV Stamps and I am honored! We are starting a new challenge and it will run until August 2, 2012.

Challenge: "Anything Goes"
Make anything that you wish and use any stamp set from CardzTV Stamps and if you don't have a stamp set yet what are you waiting for? Let me help you!! CLICK HERE to get started =)

Here is what I made for the challenge...............

I had a blast making this layout AND using these awesome stamps from Mary @ CardzTV Stamps : )

The stamps set that I used today is "Fun in the Sun", which you can purchase here!

I knew that I wanted to create a layout using this stamp set, but I wasn't quite sure how. So I put on my thinking cap and started looking through the files on Silhouette Studio (Cameo) and I saw this sign and thought to myself "I can stamp a few different sentiments right onto the road sign". I also grabbed a sun and some clouds and from there it all just came together.

The bears and pool are a set from Scraptatical Kreations called "Sizzlin' Summer Fun", which you can get here if your interested! These files cannot be cut from the Cricut but you can hand-cut them or use any other die-cutting machine(s).
 (Ex: Silhouette SD or Cameo, Eclips, eCraft, to name a few.)

Thank you for stopping by and since you're here why don't you leave me a comment letting me know that YOU were here!!!!

To join in on the challenge you will need to stop on over to Mary's blog and link your project to her blog. You can get to Mary's blog HERE! The winner will receive one of Mary's fabulous stamp sets and will be chosen my

Scraptastical Kreations "Christmas in July" Challenge

It's coming!! Christmas in only 5 months away, so why not get ahead on those gifts? This is a tag gift box. I have 12 tags inside of this box that can be attached to presents.

This idea is "Pinterest-Inspired" and I think it's a very clever and easy idea as a Christmas gift or just to have on hand for Christmas presents that you will be handing out for the holiday.

I used the "tag album" from which I seperated from the album and created a shadow. I cut the shadow and pattered paper out 12 times for each tag. I used "My Pink Stamper's Stamps-Christmas Wishes" for the To: and From: and for my ribbon I used white tulle and altered the red and green ribbons. I also added some eyelets to each tag to secure the tulle and ribbon. The pattern paper used is from the DCWV The Christmas & Winter Stack 180 sheets.

Here is the original along with a link to recreate the box and tags.......

Please stop over to Scraptastical Kreations Facebook Fan Page and create ANY Christmas inspired project and post a picture for your chance to win.

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #67

Good Morining! I'm sure some of you out there have realized that our kiddos are going back to school soon! So I thought I would make a card in honor of Back To School =)

I used one of the owls from the file "Whoo Loves School" from! I also have him on an action wobble and that's why he is leaning a little to the right. I used the sentiment "Back to School" from CardzTV Stamps set "School Days" which you can find here

Thanks for stopping by!

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #66

Good Morning Fellow Crafters!

It's time for another Scraptstical Kreations DT project =) For this simple card I used the "Baby Buckaroo" file and because I wanted to have a new baby boy card and didn't want the western feel to it, I left out the cowboy hat and ruffled up some embroidery thread for a patch of hair. I also added a side border and 3 buttons with some hemp cord tied in each of them. I used a scallop punch from Fiskars.

You can find this file and many others at

I used two stamp sets on my card today. One is the sentiment that is from Miss Mary at CardzTV Stamps, which you can also purchase them here and the set I used is from "It's All About You". The face on my baby is from "Wide-Eyed Face Assortment" from Peachy Keen Stamps, which you can find here.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #63

Good Morning my fellow crafters! Today I am doing a double feature; one card and one layout!

For this fun layout I used four different Scraptastical Kreations Paper Piecing files and my Cricut.

The clothesline is the focus of my layout, which I cut from the "Baby Steps" cricut cartridge, page 62 and it is cut at 5 inches. The tweetie bird comes with this cut but I did add some googly eyes!

Now for all the SK cuts I used. The sun is from "Sunny Day", the clouds are from "KISS-Spring", the tree and grass snippets are from "Paper Boy" and the onsie and booties are from "KISS-Oh Baby". You can find them all and many more here on her

And to add a little extra I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Divine Swirls on my clouds.

For my layered grass background I used Kiwi Lane Designs templates, that come in an assorment of shapes for your scrapbook layouts. You can find them here

I hope that you enjoyed my creation tody and I'll see ya again soon.
