Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! Hope you are all doing well. Tonight I went to a little birthday celebration for a very dear friend, and so I made her a card using Peachy Keen - Challenge #14 Color Challenge inspiration.

Materials Used for My A2 Birthday Card:
  • paper piecing of the pendant banner
  • Recollections Paper
  • Foundations Paper
  • Peachy Keen face
  • Winter Frolic - little girl
  • Wrap It Up - balloons
  • Scrappy Moms Sentiments

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas In April

Hi All,

Hope this week is treating you well! I am back to the grind (Spring Break was SO nice), so time is limited for crafting again. :( I was thankfully able to finish a project that I had started awhile ago when I had the idea of starting a mini album compiling our Christmas photo greeting and the Christmas letters that my husband writes to family and friends. I didn't have time to photograph the inside of the album but will try to do that later. I had previously made the shell of the album with the background paper, but I decorated the front cover for this week's Peachy Keen Challenge: Anything Goes!

Materials used:
Sizzix Mini Album (The outsides of the album are made w/ a thin chipboard w/ patterned paper glued on both sides of the chip board. Had to use two mini albums one on top of the other in order for our Costco Christmas Greeting to fit!)
Big Binder Rings (found these at the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim this year)
Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge
faux stitching
the mini crystals for the snow
sticker letters
Peachy Keen faces! Love that I got to use the Critter faces!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

Peachy Keen Challenge 12

Happy Easter Everyone! I hope you all have a very blessed day tomorrow!

My husband and I have a TON of weddings to attend in the next couple of months, so instead of rushing around on the DAY OF the wedding to buy or make a card (my standard routine) I thought I would be proactive and start early. I crafted this card for the Peachy Keen 12: Sketch.
Materials I used:

  • Cricut Accent Essentials for back panel
  • Cricut Paper Doll Dress up (bride and groom)
  • Patter paper is "Recollections" paper
  • pearl trim ribbon and pearl stick-ons
  • black ribbon
  • Scrappy Moms Sentiment
  • Peachy Keen Faces - PK 490 Everyday Face Assortment
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for visiting!

Happy Early Easter!

Hi Friends!

Hope you are all doing well! SO excited to have finished this little project in time to submit to a couple of challenges. I'm submitting this to:

I made this cute little egg lollipop bouquet using the following materials:

  • My box was cut from: Cricut Slumber Party
  • I used a styrofoam cube from Dollar Tree and covered it with a fabric scrap
  • My Eggs and chickadees were cut from Cricut Simply Charmed
  • The trim was from random scraps
  • chickadee faces were all from Peachy Keen PK-461 Happy Lashes 1 1/8
  • and finally, the little ribbon was baker's twine from Scrappy Moms

If I don't post before Easter again, I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

<3, Katie
