Paper Craft Crew 115

Here we are at midweek again. This week is a very busy week at work. We have our annual Gala on Friday. There is a nice 7:00am to 11:00pm day! Yesterday was a good day at work, I got to go on a nice long three hour errand! Love when that happens. Last night was a nice quiet evening, I crafted for a bit, talked to Danielle and watch some TV. Oh, I almost forgot, I got my tickets to see Sam Smith again in January. This time he’s in Madison Square Garden!! And I got pretty good seats this time too!! I’m looking forward to that!

So it’s Wednesday and that means I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS115 Sketch 10-22-2014

So when I looked at the sketch I wanted to use the Heart Border Punch, who knows! LOL! My card starts with a base of Garden Green Card Stock. For my background I took a piece of Crumb Cake and embossed it with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The bottom is a piece of paper from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack. To cover the seam I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler and tied a piece of Linen Thread around it in a bow to the left. The panel is another piece of the Designer Series Paper with a piece of Cherry Cobbler on top and I used the Hearts Border Punch across the top. My Tree is from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green on Garden Green and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few hearts are adhered to the tree with Multi-Purpose Glue and the panel to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Garden Green on a piece of Whisper White and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. In the upper right corner is part of a circle and a strip of Cherry Cobbler with one of the hearts from the Essentials Wooden Elements colored in with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker. A heart is adhered to the top of that and three more in the right corner complete the card. A fun traditional Christmas card with a slight country feel to it! I hope that you liked my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. There is some more inspiration over on the BLOG so be sure and stop by! Thanks for visiting with me today, I hope that you have a very nice Wednesday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 114 & Daniel

Posted on

Yesterday was another good day, I got to go on another errand! I do so love to escape from the office, even if it’s just for a little bit. Daniel was over for dinner yesterday too! My little buddy! He was 11 months old yesterday too! I can’t believe how fast that has gone. I also registered for Leadership in Orlando and booked my flight! Woo hoo! Sunny Florida in January! I’m going to meet my friend Maggie down there a few days early so we can do some fun theme park stuff! I can’t wait! I did remember to take a picture of little Daniel, excuse my weird face, I was trying to get him to look at the camera!

Me & Daniel 10-14-2014

Today is, can you believe it, Wednesday already! That means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS114 Sketch 10-15-2014

I was missing Lost Lagoon so I decided that would be one of my colors for today’s card. The card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of Lost Lagoon that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered over to the right. My frame is a piece of Whisper White and I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to create it. The tree is from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lost Lagoon. I heat embossed the ornaments and star in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder along with some snowflakes from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the frame. The little stars are Silver Foil Sheet and Lost Lagoon, two punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and the larger one is cut out with the Stars Framelits. My greeting is also from the Holiday Home Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Bitty Banner Punch, some more Silver Foil Sheet and a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones Complete the card. I love the shine of the silver with the Lost Lagoon and White. Another fun non-traditional Christmas card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Take a minute to stop by the BLOG to see what the rest of my fellow design team members have done with the sketch. Thanks for spending some time with me today, I appreciate your visit.

Is it Wednesday already?! Yeah! I know, I’m wishing the week away but come on, admit it, you are too! LOL! Yesterday was a pretty good day. Daniel was at my parents when I got there, is it possible that he gets cuter every time I see him?! I’ll remember to take some pictures next time, I promise! I came home and made my card for today and Andrew came by and hung out for a while. He worked on his paper for school and I did the blog thing. All in all a pretty good day and an excellent evening! I have some more pictures from Manhattan to share with you today. I however didn’t take these but it’s something that most of us will never get to see. My friend Brian is a fireman, I think I have mentioned that before, and the people in his group went up to the top of the new Freedom Tower and took some pictures. They were up higher than any of us will ever get to go and even though it was an overcast day the pictures are quite cool. The first one is just looking out over manhattan…

WTC Roof 1

The second one is looking down at the reflecting pools…

WTC Roof 2

To think that’s where the two towers used to stand gives me a little chill, I think that the fogginess adds to the picture too.

Now off we go to today’s post. I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch…

PCCCS113 Sketch 10-08-2014

I used a fun set that I had forgotten that I had! My card begins with a base of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock. For the background I stamped the Dictionary Background Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black on Crumb Cake. All of the stamped images are from the Bite Me Photopolymer Stamp Set. The panel is a another piece of Pumpkin Pie and I heat embossed the spider web in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and backed it with a piece of Basic Black. The two spiders are heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. I used the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the Bite Me and backed it with a piece of Whisper White. Finally, the greeting is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black and I flagged the right side. I’m really loving the color combination and the stamp set is just so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Stop by the BLOG and show us some love by entering your project in the gallery. Thank you for stopping by to share some more pictures with me and see my card, have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

I do enjoy a Wednesday, it’s the halfway point and after the day I had yesterday I’m glad to be that much closer to Friday. Work made up for all of the pleasant days that I have had by being just annoying. We have good days and bad days, that’s just the way things work right?! I ran Heather over to her catering job to pick something up after work and then had dinner. I did get a call from my friend at the Apple Store yesterday telling me that he had an iPhone 6 for me to pick up. My friend Kim in the city wanted one and she is on my plan so I headed over and picked it up. I also stopped at BestBuy to get her a case and a screen protector. Now to get it to her, because once the new phone is purchased the old one gets shut off! My friend Chantal to the rescue! I went and dropped it off at her house and Kim will go over to her office and pick it up tomorrow. It was a very involved process to make it all come together but it did in the end!

When I did my post yesterday the Tuesday specials from Stampin’ Up! weren’t up yet so here they are for you today…

PCCCS112 Sketch 10-01-2014

It looked vaguely familiar to me so I decided not to use the speech bubbles again. I started off today’s card with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock and on top of that is a piece of Basic Black. The top panel is a piece of Tangerine Tango and I stamped one of the images from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on it. My pumpkins and leaf are cut out using the Fun Fall Framelits. I cut one of the pumpkins out of the pane and one from Crushed Curry. The leaf is cut from a piece of Sahara Sand. Before I adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I tucked a piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper behind the negative pumpkin and I stamped the greeting from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit in Memento Tuxedo Black. The other pumpkin and leaf are adhered with more Stampin’ Dimensionals and three black enamel dots are secured in the lower right corner. A fun and different Halloween card don’t you think?! That’s my interpretation of this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. Stop by the blog and see what my fellow Design Team members have done with it and let’s see what you do too, upload you card to the gallery! Thank you for coming by to see me today, I hope that you enjoyed the card and that you all have a the best Wednesday in recent memory! 🙂

Sometimes you have one of those quiet nondescript days, today was one of them. Work was work, dinner was dinner. I made a card and actually watched a TV show. I’m not a huge TV person and I haven’t watched a series in a long time. I was looking through iTunes and saw this show called Forever, it looked interesting and the pilot was free so I watched it. It has a kind of interesting premise, the lead character is 200 years old and can’t die. They prove this by having him be a part of a terrible subway crash in the first 10 minutes of the show. The rest of the show was pretty interesting too, if you have some free time give a watch and let me know what you think. We need to mix it up every once in a while don’t we? I’ll do that by watching some TV! LOL! Sometimes I’m so exciting I can’t stand it! LOLOLOL!

Now that I have had my little tangent lets get to today’s post. I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for our sketch this week…

PCCCS111 Sketch 9-24-2014

I was quite impressed that I didn’t see the flowers when I looked at the sketch, I saw Halloween! For my card base I used a piece of Bermuda Bay Card Stock. The background is two pieces of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack with a piece of Basic Black Chevron Ribbon across the middle that is adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip before mounting it to the card with SNAIL. My panel is a piece of Tangerine Tango with another piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper tucked underneath the right hand side. The three stamped images are from the Freaky Friends Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Basic Gray and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers. I used my Paper Snips to cut them out and they are all adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Basic Black that I flagged the right end of. To complete the card I adhered three enamel dots in the lower right hand corner (a little prezzy from Taylor!). I really like it when you can use a few different pieces from a pack of DSP together and I love when the stamp set coordinates so perfectly! There is my freaky little Halloween card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Take a minute to stop by the blog and see what the other Designers have done with the sketch and let’s see what you come up with! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for your visit! Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 110 & Mixed Media!

Posted on

It was a little on the chilly side here this morning and it drizzled most of the day. It did manage to finally clear up by the evening and the sun did peek it’s head out for a bit. I had a somewhat lazy evening, I messed around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit and ran a few errands but other than that it was a quiet evening. I do have something fun to share with you today in addition to my card. I love when you are kind enough to share some of the things that you are working on with me. We had Grace’s quilt and now our friend Donna has sent me some pictures of her multi-media projects that she has done! There are three different canvases, one has a picture of her adorable granddaughter, one is a small one (purple) and the last one is a beach. I think that they are just fantastic! It makes me want to finish the one that I started a few weeks ago! So here are Donna’s canvases for your viewing pleasure!

MM 1 Donna

MM 2 Donna

MM 5 Donna

MM 3 Donna

MM 4 Donna

Aren’t they awesome!! I really like all of them but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the beach one! You can feel the warmth from the sunset and almost hear the waves and smell the salt air! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us Donna! I really appreciate it!

It’s Wednesday right?! LOL! Well, that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS110 Sketch 9-17-2014

When I saw the sketch I wasn’t going to take it literally and then I thought that I could have some fun with it! I started with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is a piece of Basic Black and I heat embossed the “Vintage” Off the Grid Stamp in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Next I heat embossed the Dictionary Background Stamp in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla. The greeting from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set is also heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Word Bubbles Framelits to cut them out and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My stars are Gold Foil Sheet that I punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and they too are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the end I’m glad that I did stay true to the sketch, I had fun using all of the heat embossing and love the simple Vanilla, Black and Gold together! Well, I really hope that you enjoyed the pictures of Donna’s multi-media projects and my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see they other designer’s projects and let’s see what you come up with. Enter your project in the gallery!

Happy Wednesday! Love the halfway point almost as much as I love Friday! LOL! So I don’t know if you are aware of how much of an Apple fan I am but yesterday was like Christmas! Apple announced their new iPhone 6’s, yes two of them! One with a 4.7″ screen and one with a 5.5″ screen. They also announced their new Apple Pay system where you can pay for things with your iPhone, I will be loving that as I hate to carry a wallet! They always have one more thing and this time it was the Apple Watch!! I can’t wait to get that! I have a smart watch now but it’s no where near as smart as the Apple Watch! I also got to “live” text the whole keynote to Andrew while he was in school! I felt like a little tech blogger! LOL! You can pre-order the new phone on Friday, it was a special day already but now, well, it’s even more special! UPS and FedEx are going to busy next week! 🙂

Oh, I forgot to tell you yesterday about the Stampin’ Up! weekly deals so here they are…

PCCCS109 Sketch 9-10-2014

A really fun and different one don’t you think?! The funny thing is that I knew I wanted to use the Confetti Stars Punch, I just wasn’t sure how. My card starts off with a base of Crushed Curry Card Stock. On the lower half of the card I adhered a piece of paper from the Flashback Designer Series Paper Pack. In the center is a piece of Real Red that I punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and the used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom. I adhered a piece of Pool Party 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon around the back before using some Multi-Purpose glue to adhere the red to the base. My flag coming in from the top right is a piece of Basic Gray and on top of that is a piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped the notebook paper from the Tap, Tap, Tap Stamp Set in Pool Party, used the Spiral Border Punch along the left side and then rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder. The typewriter and greeting are from the same set and are heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Smoky Slate. My two stars are from the Be the Star Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Stars Framelits. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of those pieces to the card. A Silver Basic Metal Button is adhered with a Glue Dot to the ribbon to finish off the card. I love the mix of colors and yes, I’m still a little addicted to heat embossing! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Please take a minute to head on over to the blog and check out the other designer projects. Why not make one and upload it to the gallery for us to see?! I appreciate you stopping by to see what I have been up to. I hope that you all have a very happy hump day! 🙂

First days back to work after a long weekend are usually not that great but mine was! I had to go out to East Hampton to the school that we have there and set up a loop on one of the TV’s using the new hardware and software that I recommended. It’s a 75 mile trip each way and once you get to certain point on the road that goes out there it’s one lane and very slow moving. But, it was a nice sunny, if not very hot and humid day. Top down in the car and the music up nice and loud made for a good if not long ride. It was the day before classes start so the staff was there and they got everyone pizza for lunch. I picked a good day to go out there! LOL! I got the setup done in about 2 1/2 hours and then headed home. You wouldn’t know that Long Island really is long until you head out to the Hamptons! It’s still the place to go after all of these years, I have friends that have houses out there and I have been out in the summer but it’s way too crowded for me. I like to go out in the fall, there are less people but still things to do and places to go. I do love a field trip as you all know! 😀

One of the stamp sets that I use on my card today is called Good Greetings. It’s the Host set for the 2014 Holiday Catalog and you can earn the set for free when you either host a party or place an order for $300 or more between now and October 31st. This is in addition to the regular Host Benefits that you already get. You can see more info below or clock HERE to download a PDF of the flyer. It’s a great set to have in that really cool font! Get yours today!

It’s Wednesday (already!) and that means that today is my post for the Paper Craft Crew Design Team blog. This week we have a fun sketch for you…

PCCCS108- Sketch 9-03-2014

At first I though postage stamps for the two squares and then I decided that was too obvious so I dusted off an oldie but goodie! For my card base I used a piece of Smoky Slate Card Stock with a small strip of Pool Party going down the left side. The panel in the middle is a piece of Lost Lagoon and I heat embossed the sentiment/image from the Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler and mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My two snowflakes are from the “Vintage” Festive Flurry Stamp Set, they are heat embossed in Pool Party and cut out with the “Vintage” Festive Flurry Framelits. I flagged a piece of Whisper White and heat embossed the greeting on it from the Good Greetings Host Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Dimensionals go behind the snowflakes and flagged greeting and hold them in place. To complete the card I place three enamel dots up in the right corner. The Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set is really cool and looks especially good heat embossed on a darker color, really makes the sentiment stand out and I still love those snowflakes! The card has a somewhat tailored masculine feel to it, wouldn’t you agree?!

Paper Craft Crew 107 & The Puppies

Posted on

Mid week, yes, it’s nice to be here again. My day was all sorts of fun! LOL! Not really but what can ya do?! I found that rolling with it is a much better way to go than, well, all of the other ways one could go. I try to apply that to everything in my life, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Life is all about experiences and learning and growing from them. I am successful most of the time but there is always one that I get caught up on. I’m getting better, but there is still work that needs to be done. Sorry about that, just a little stream of consciousness that slipped out! On a happier and lighter note here is that picture of Kim with all of the puppies!

Kim & The Wuppies

Aren’t they just adorable! Yes, Kim too! LOL! Daisy is the mom and then the dad is there and the two sons. One big happy family! They do so love Kim, their favorite thing to do is sit on her!

Hmm… let’s see… Wednesday… ahh yes, it Paper Craft Crew sketch time! Here is this week’s inspiration for you…

PCCCS107 8-27-2014

I didn’t follow it exactly but I did stay pretty true to it. For my base I used a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is two different pieces of paper from the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. I used the Striped Scallop Thinlit to cut out some Gold Foil Sheet and adhered it to the background with some Multi-Purpose Glue. A strip of Calypso Coral with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine covers up the seam and top of the scallop. My greeting is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and is stamped in Garden Green and Calypso Coral. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits and the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to cut them out. A piece of Pistachio Pudding cut out with the Oval Collection Framelits goes behind it and all of the layers are adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the way the scallop pattern in the DSP mimics the Striped Scallop and is seen again in the DSP on the top half. I hope that you enjoyed my eclectic Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Make sure that you stop by the BLOG to see more inspiration and enter your card in the gallery so I can see your take! Thank you for coming by to see what’s going on in my little corner of the world, I love having you spend some time with me! Have a wonderful Wednesday peeps! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 106

Posted on

Hey there readers! It’s Thursday and I’m hoping that my happy Wednesday carries over! LOL! I had a nice day at work yesterday because I got to run errands in the morning! I went to the Apple Store to pick up a MacBook that was dropped off for repairs, then off to Michaels to get some poster frames, I had to stop at the post office to mail out my Control Freaks swaps and see my friend. I’m glad that you enjoyed the Control Freaks Tour yesterday. I always have a lot of fun making my projects and then like I always say the best part is reading your comments! It really does make all of the effort well worth it! I’m going to sneak into the city on Saturday morning to see my friend Kim and pay a little visit to Sam Flax. I am feeling to need to use my Filofax Organiser again! Ahh… the good old days of my trusty paper organizer! I guess my addiction to paper is getting worse! LOL!

I’m a day late with my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch, I was a kind of tired Tuesday night that I haven’t felt before! I guess 8 hours of sleep in three days will do that! LOL! But I have it for you today and here is the sketch…

PCCCS106 Sketch 8-20-2014

I played around with some more new Holiday Catalog goodies! You only have one more week to wait to get your new stuff! My card uses a piece of Mossy Meadow Card Stock for the base. The background is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. My main panel is stamped with the tree and garland from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set*, the tree is stamped in Mossy Meadow and the garland is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I backed it with Mossy Meadow. The panel behind it is a piece of paper from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler. The panels are adhered to each other with SNAIL and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Star Framelits to cut out a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered that to the bottom right of the panels. My greeting is also from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set* and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a strip of Cherry Cobbler. Three enamel dots to the left of the panels completes the card. A simple fun traditional Christmas card with a little sparkle from the star and garland! There is my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Stop by the blog and take a look at what the rest of the design team has done for the sketch and enter your card in the gallery so we can see what you come up with! Thank you for taking some time out of your day to spend with me! I appreciate it! Have a super Thursday peeps! 🙂
