DGD's Projects

I wanted to share with you a project my DGD and I did this past weekend. She wanted to paint an A for her door and have it sparkle, We used folk art acrilic purple, let it dry and then added dazzling diamonds for the sparkle. Pretty in pink ribbon was added to make it pretty. The little book was made with DCWV DSP, and then I used the bind it all. The little dog was cut with whisper white CS and the cricut using the create a critter cartridge. The face was stamped with the creata critter Peachy Keen stamps made just for the creata critter cartridge. They are the cutest stamps.

I went to Michael's this afternoon and purchaced a shadow box for my 8x8 scrapbook page. It looks much better than the one below.
I have been making a scrapbook for my mother.  She was diagnosed with alzheimer's 5 years ago. I decided to make this scrapbook so we could go through it together when she doesn't know who her family is any more. My mother is the sweetest person and everyone loves her. We really have a good time when we get together. I made this page for her birthday when I took her out to her favorite chinese food resturant. I stamped one of  Peachy Keen Dolly Dumpling face stamps on the bowls. I just love the way they turned out. So cute!  Their challenge this week at Peach Keen Stamps was to make a shadow box. I don't have a shadow box in 8x8 so I put it in my 12x12 box. It still looks cute and I think I will leave it there for awhile. 

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I love all the comments. Thanks to all of you who are following my blog. It really inspires me to create more. Happy Crafting and Stamping.

Happy Snowman

Todays card did not turn out as expected but I think it turned out cute anyway. I started off using the design studio for the cricut. I thought how easy this is going to be. I wanted a snowman card no background. I have no idea what I did wrong but it cut the snowmen out seperately even though I did weld it. I really need to learn DS better. I then decided I needed to use the pieces anyway and this is what I came up with. This challenge is for My Creative Time Thursday challenge with Emma. We needed to use the colors blue, brown and red. I also used the Peachy Keen Stamp for the face. I also added lots of stitching to make the image pop more. I hope you like my end result.
Stamp Set: Peachy Keen Winter Face Stamps
Paper: tempting turquoise, chocolate chip, whisper white, black, real red DSP from the level 1 hostess paper stack 3.
Ink: black, pumpkin pie and chocolate chip markers.
Accessories: cricut, cricut cartridge stretch your imagination, corner photo punch, flower unknown, black buttons.

Made by Momo has a challenge on her blog every 2 weeks on a Tuesday and 1 winner a month, This months giveaway is the cricut cartridge Cindi Loo. This is such a cute cartridge and I would love to win. The challenge is to make a graduation card or a congratulations card would be accepted.

This was made for my DD Cyndi for her hard work in training her puppy Porchia. Porchia went to puppy school but had a hard time being around other puppies. Anyone that knows a Yorkie knows they think they are a larger breed of dog and should be boss. Porchia is the cutest little yorkie with an attitude. lol but she is so sweet and cuddly. All of the dogs in her puppy training class graduated to the next level. Porchia received Congratulations diploma for completing her puppy class and was asked to return to the next puppy class. LOL
I had a lot of fun making this card thinking of my DD as I made it. I don't have a cartridge with a grad hat so I came up with my own version. I have ordered the Peachy Keen Stamp set Critter faces and it should arrive in the next couple of weeks. I can hardly wait to get them. The faces are so adorable and will really make my critters look fabulous.

Stamp Set: Celebrate
Paper: melon mambo, whisper white, black, melon mambo DSP
Ink: melon mambo, black marker, white gel pen
Accessories: 1 3/4" sq punch, melon mambo polka dot ribbon, gold elastic.

Hear Me Roar

Emma over at My Creative Time has started a challenge called Throwback Thrusday! Emma's idea is to focus on some of the older cricut cartridges. This week the challenge is to make an animal, so I made this cute lion from the animal kindom cartridge. I love the Peachy Keen Stamps and only had the med animal faces that were too big for this lion. I had no choice but to draw the face in my self.  I have just put in an order from Kathy so I will have to wait until my next order to purchace the smaller animal faces. I didn't have a sentiment that was appropriate so I wrote it in with chocolate chip marker. The out side says "Hear Me Roar" and the inside says "I'm not Lion, Out of all the people on earth, You are the best since the day of your birth. I hope your Birthday is as wonderful as you are."  This card was made into a gift card holder. I hope you like it.

Paper: chocloate chip, more mustard, dusty durango, creamy carmal, hostess level 1 DSP pack.
Ink: chocolate chip, black, more mustard
Accessories: photo corner punch, brads, white gel pen, cricut machine, cartridge animal kingdom.

Thanks for stopping by to see me. Happy stamping and crafting.
