BBTB2 - 3D Projects

Happy Monday!

Welcome to another challenge over at BBTB2!

This week the challenge is all about 3D Projects...
SO FUN!!!

I decided to make a cute little pillow box from
Something to Celebrate.

My paper is from American Crafts.

I also decided to add a 3D butterfly.
I used Art Philosophy to cut out this cute image
and just popped up the
middle section of the layer to create the effect.
I used a rhinestone for embellishment.

My sentiment is from a stamp set from
Craftin' Desert Divas.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - July 4th

Happy Monday!!!

Welcome to another challenge over at BBTB2!
This week was my choice for the challenge and seeing
as how the 4th of July is tomorrow
I though we could channel our inner
Red, White & Blue.

I used the cut from Designer's Calendar for July 4th - LOVE.
I pulled some papers from my stash and just kind of
criss-crossed them for this fun layout.

I love the 4th of July and all that it stands for...
I also love the fireworks ;)

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Happy Father's Day

Happy Monday!

I have the craziest week ahead and to top it all off...
Father's Day on Sunday!

Not. Even. Close. To. Being. Prepared!!!

At least I have a card ready,
thanks to BBTB2 ;)

Our challenge this week is
Father's Day.


I picked up a new paper pad at Hobby Lobby,
I haven't bought new paper for a LONG time!
I really love the masculine colors and patterns.

I used Summer Celebrations for the tie cut
and was inspired by a sketch from Mojo Monday.

The sentiment is from a $1 stamp set I picked up
along time ago at Robert's.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week!

Cut It Up

Today over at Cut It Up! we have a super fun challenge:

So my DT sister Katrina recommended a YouTube channel
for some fun tutorials and I decided to check it out!
I highly recommend you take a look at her amazing videos too!

I watched a video on some embellishment paper clips
and I had to try them out.
However, I didn't have any of the cute spiral clips,
so I decided to use clothes pins instead.
I think they turned out super cute!!!



My paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby),
that I picked up years ago.
I cut one of the flowers from Art Philosophy,
the bigger one is 3" and the smaller one is 2".
I inked up the edges with some black ink and added
a black flat back rhinestone for the center.
I used my ATG Gun to adhere
the flowers to the clothes pins.

I really like how they turned out.

I hope you will join us for "Summer School"
this week over at Cut It Up!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Birthday!

Happy Monday!!!

School is out this week?!?!?
NO WAY!!!

Well, this week over at BBTB2 the challenge is
all about Birthdays!
May is my Birthday Month, so I had no
problem with creating a fun card!


I just love this present cut from Everyday Pop-Up Cards.
I chose papers from my Scrap Stash
and my sentiment is from Fiskars.

I added a few pink flat back pearls for
embellishment and think it turned out pretty cute.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2!

In desperation for the snow to stop here where I live,
I decided to chose a Spring Theme for the challenge
this week over at BBTB2!

For my card, I decided to follow a sketch from Paper Play Sketches.
I used the Bee from Garden Soup - I really love that cartridge!
My papers are from DCWV and used a paper flower
and some pearls for embellishments.
