Soooo sweet!

Good morning crafty peeps and happy Saturday.  Let’s see – this weekend could not have come fast enough. But the good news is I now have a bit of time for a good rest and a bit of crafty fun!  Starting with some Tiddly Inks!

This cutie is one of Christy’s characters named Molly.  This particular version of Molly is a dig called Molly Treat.  I love colouring Molly’s hair…

 

…and I decided to give yellow a try for her dress.  It’s funny – yellow is not usually my go to colour for large sections of my stamps.  But I love how bright and fun it looks together with the Doodlebug paper.  I don’t know – what do you think?  Does yellow suit Molly?

Well, whatever you have planned this weekend, I hope it involved a rest, some crafting and maybe even a bit of a treat (perhaps not one as big as Molly’s, but a treat nonetheless)!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cream and Sugar 2

Hi everyone! Guess what?  I am so excited to announce that I get to join Doodlebug for another year!  Joining this team was a thrill last year, and I had a great time creating with some of the most beautiful product around from an incredibly generous and fun company. So, when they asked if I would like to continue, it took less than a second to reply “YES!”.

Last year, when I started on the team, Cream & Sugar was the first collection that I was introduced too.  It has remained one of my favourites, not just for sentimental reasons, but also because as a coffee lover with a serious sweet tooth, I feel like this collection was made for me.  And given all the comments and cute project we have seen from all of you, we know it is a favourite of yours as well!

So for my first project this term, I thought I would go back to my card making roots!  You know I love my interactive and fun fold cards, so it was fun to pull out some of my old stand-bys…like side step cards!

And if a side step card is not your jam, a traditional A2 might work for you!

I have more pictures and plenty of details up over at the Doodlebug blog if you want to stop by!  In the meantime, I hope you can find some time to do a little crafting on what is left of this weekend!  I know I have a couple of projects up my sleeve!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

In terms of sentiments, that part was easy too!  I simply grabbed some stickers from the This & That sticker sheet , backed them with some paper from the 12×12 pack (although the 6×6 would be perfect too), and stick them on!

 

Add some Sprinkles (like these cute Cupcake coloured ones) and maybe a mini paper clip or two and you are all set!

So there you have it – a cute set of three cards ready for Valentine’s day next month, or any time that you want to send a little message that will make someone smile.  For now, these little cuties are going to find a place in my crafty space because quite frankly, they make me smile!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,
Karen

 

 

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s hard to believe that the Christmas season is behind us and we are on to a new year!  With new years come new challenges…but unlike the ones that life throws at us, colouring challenges are much more fun!  So let’s start the year with one from Tiddly Inks!

This month, Christy and Lou are starting us off easily with Anything Tiddly Inks Goes!! So put on your Tiddly mojo and go with the flow!! (**remember…We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

I used one of the new stamps in the store called Hello My DeerThis cutie is a great multi-purpose stamp that you can use for all sorts of events.  I coloured it up with my trusty Copics and added a hand-lettered sentiment.  I stuck it down on some cute Doodlebug paper, topped it off with a May Arts ribbon bow and I was all set.

Tiddly Ink challenge #1 (for the new year anyway) in the bag!

So, any great New Year’s resolutions on your plate?

 

Party Challenge – New Year’s Eve!

 

Well??!!!  Did you survive?  Have you recouped from the holiday celebrations enough to think about New Year’s Eve?  Don’y worry – you have a couple of more days! And I’ve got you covered in case you have the energy for a few more projects this week!

Recently, the design team at Doodlebug was challenged to pull together a party collection and I thought I would have some fun with a collection called  Hats Off – a great graduation themed collection that was released earlier this year.  Although the collection is really graduation themed, the black and white theme seemed like a perfect fit. Once I started flipping through all the patterns I realized just how perfect it could be!

…starting with my favourite – some little place setting treat boxes that double as a party game for the evening.  

So, if you are interested in more details, make sure to come and visit me over at the Doodlebug blog!  These projects are really easy to complete, so even if you want just a bit of added “homemade” for your festivities, I’m sure you will find something!
