I fell in crafty love with the new Tiddly Inks digital images, Wryn and Friends.  They are so stinkin' cute!  I love them all, but the Grow a Little Love was my favorite and the rest is history.

Here's how I expressed my crafty love:

I Love You Berry Much

It's a new year, it's a new month...it's time to get my craft back on.  So without further ado...
I kicked off my first craft project of the year by participating in the current CAS-ual Fridays and Paper Smooches SPARK Challenges.

Display our button

The CAS-ual Fridays challenge requires you to create a clean and simple project with kraft and twine.  While the Paper Smooches challenge requires you to create a project based on the inspiration you gleen from the photo provided and use a Paper Smooches stamp.  I decided to combine the challenges and came up with this...

Thanks for looking!

Digi Stamps: Berry with sentiment (Paper Smooches)

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #30

The current CAS-ual Fridays challenge coincided beautifully with a thank you card I needed to create for a friend.  In this Tic Tac Toe challenge, I had to either choose a row down, across or diagonal and use those 3 design elements to create a clean and simple project.

I chose the bottom row (Stripes, Orange, Aqua).  I was going for a simple classy look.  I think I accomplished my mission.  What do you think?

Masculine Birthday Card

I wanted to make a masculine birthday card for my dad.  While my intent was masculine I think the design is neutral and could be used for other purposes.  My dad liked his card so mission accomplished.  I can't take credit for this design as I was totally inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.

Getting Krafty with Mojo Monday

This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 215 provides a sketch that I can get krafty with...literally.  I have a thing for kraft paper.  I just love using it.  I recently purchased some My Mind's Eye kraft designer papers and I must say they spoke to the krafty in me.  So it should be no surprise that this card is mostly kraft...in form or another.

CLOSED: Renuzit® Holiday Fresh Accents™ Review and Giveaway

I was given an opportunity to review Renuzit® Holiday Fresh Accents™ Collection.

Renuzit® Fresh Accents™ is an attractive air freshener that offers the following:

  • Stylish versatile two-side holiday design
  • Two holiday fragrances – Winter Berry and Festive Snow®
  • 30 days of continuous fragrance odor elimination
  • No plugs, batteries or flames needed
I must say I was impressed by the packaging as they are very fitting to accent (get it) anyone’s holiday d├ęcor.  The scents were very pleasant.  If I had to choose, I prefer the winter berry scent as it was just made my senses happy.  I put one in my family room, which is a rather large room so the scent did not permeate as much as I would like.  On the flip side, I put the other in a bedroom and the scent permeated very well in there. So, the size of the room plays a big part in how strong the scent will be in a given space. Overall, I was happy with the product.  Also, considering they retail at about 2 bucks a pop at most stores, it’s a value that can’t be beat.

Well, I think I have said enough about what I think about Renuzit® Holiday Fresh Accents™ Collection.  Would you like to form your own opinion?  Of course you would.  Well, I have the perfect opportunity for you.

Tag You're It

I haven't played with a CAS-ual Fridays Challenge in a long while and I must say I've missed it some kinda bad.  The missing is ova and I'm ready to play!

This CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (CFC28) is all about creating a clean and simple tag.  This challenge was just in time to create some Christmas tags.

I just bought this Inkadinkado stamp set this past weekend and couldn't wait to get it inky.  I'm notorious for buying craft stuff and taking forever to use it or never using it.  So, I was quite proud of myself for using my purchase immediately.  Yay me!

Thanks for looking,

Stamps: Stocking Stuffer Mini (Inkadinkado)
Paper: Kraft (Hobby Lobby), White (Georgia Pacific)
Ink: Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger), Onyx Black VersaFine Ink & Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (Tsukineko)

Triplicate Trials Tuesday Challenge #10

Time for another Triplicate Trials Tuesday challenge.

I went the clean and simple route with this challenge.  I printed the image on white cardstock and added some color with a Copic marker. To fancy the dress up a bit, I added some Stickles for some sparkle and shine.  Cute the image out and popped the image on a kraft panel that was lightly dusted with distress ink and the whole shebang was placed on a white cardstock base.  Pretty simple.

Hope you join in the fun at Triplicate Trials Tuesday.  Can't wait to see what you create.  You have until October 16th to participate.

Thanks for looking,

Stamps: Pretty Paper (Sassy Studio Designs)
Paper: White (Georgia Pacific), Kraft (Hobby Lobby)
