Magical Day

I am sure that it comes as no surprise that I love stamps!  If you have ever seen a post here at SCS, you will notice that colouring up a cute image is a way that I decompress, and putting them onto fun cards is the icing on the cake.  I don’t play favourites – give me an image I can colour and I am a happy crafter.

But every once and awhile, I come across a stamp that just steals my heart.  This new stamp from Tiddly Inks called Magical Day is just one of those stamps!

This stamp features one of Christy’s main characters – Wryn – dressed up for a day of imagination.  And together with her little frog prince and cute butterfly, I would argue that it can hardly get cuter than this!

I coloured up Wryn to match some new Doodlebug paper that I have kicking around the crafty table.  It features Copics mostly in the Red family (R81/83/85 for the top of her dress) and just a few colours as embellishments.

I hand lettered a little sentiment just to finish things off, finishing off the card with one of my favourite ribbons from May Arts.  I am not sure what occasion this card will be for, but it may just make its way onto a shelf in my crafty space in the meantime!

Chit Chat fun

The only thing I love more than giving away a homemade card is giving away a homemade card that includes a pun!  Doodlebug’s new Chit Chat die cuts make pulling together a cute card with a great sentiment as easy as it gets!  I had the chance to pull together a few cards recently and thought it would be fun to share the fun with you!

For this little set, I wanted a variety of cards that would serve a variety of occasions.  While the So Punny collection is filled with love, it is also filled with with great Chit Chats that will work perfectly for…

…that great dad or grandpa in your life…

…a great thank-you or thinking of you card for the seamstress or quilter in your life…

…or even a fun general purpose card for the tea fan in your life.  And really, this is a just a sample of the huge variety in this awesome and versatile collection.

It is such a fun collection and if you are looking for more details on additional products on the cards, pop on over to the Doodlebug blog to see them up close and personal!

Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly, and while not everyone is a fan, Doodlebug’s So Punny collection will make you a convert!  In fact, this collection is so cute and so versatile that you will be using it for everything from Valentine’s Day to Father’s Day to birthdays to Pizza Day (actually, I’m not sure if there is a pizza day, but if not, let’s invent one just so we have an excuse to craft with this collection some more)!

It’s a great collection because there really is something for everyone!  Whether your loved ones love BBQ…

…a gummi bears…

…or pizza, this collection has got you covered!


So come on by the Doodlebug blog for more details on this cute collection and this trio of cards!

DD Dragon tails

Okay wait a minute?!  How did I miss posting this project?  I created this layout last spring for Doodlebug and it has become one of my absolute favourite projects!  So the time has come to share it here as well…because it doesn’t get cuter than vikings, right?!

A couple of years ago, we took a trip to Disney World and while we had a great time at all the parts, we had some particularly fun memories at Epcot.  One of those memories was when my dear hubby donned a viking helmet because my youngest absolutely refused to put that thing on here head!  When this cute collection – called Dragon Tails –  came out, I knew it would be perfect for this photo.

Originally, I was going to do the journaling along the edges of the waves, but there were some images on the background paper that didn’t get completely covered by the waves, so I decided to create some hidden journaling, using the waves to create a pocket for the tag.

Oh, and I ended up having so much fun with this collection that I created some candy bar sliders as well.  All the details for both projects are still up over at the Doodlebug blog! 

Anyway, it might be a bit late, but I hope it brought a smile to your face today!
