Crafty Gals Corner Challenges 12/6/17-Anything Goes

Hello, fellow crafters! We've begun a new challenge over at The Crafty Gals Corner. This week the challenge is Anything Goes! We have 2 amazing Sponsors for us this week! They are:

Prize: 3 digital images

Prize: 3 digital images

Now let me share with you the image I used from Conie Fong. Here is my card using, Butterfly Kisses.

She's such a sweet image! I enjoyed coloring her! I was going to use my new Ohuhu markers, but I decided with the butterflies being so small, I might have more control with my pencils, since using markers is still new to me. 

I used a white cardstock as my base, then added some glimmer pink paper to give it an edge, and then mounted a piece of DSP on top of the pink and added her on top. I added lace to the top and bottom, then added a butterfly and flower in the corners. 

I hope that you will join in on the challenges this week! We love seeing you "getting your craft on"!

Papercraft Business 1st Challenge is Here!

Hi, crafters! I'm so excited to announce to you that today begins a New Challenge Blog over at Papercraft Business! And I've been asked to be a part of the Design Team! So with that said, here are some important information for you. First, our THEME: We are an Anything Goes Challenge Blog. That means  cards, tags, mixed media, etc. Optional: Christmas for an extra entry to win the prize! This is a monthly challenge, so it ends December 31st, 2017.

The winning prize is: Magnolia Designs – Christmas Eve Edwin stamp
Christmas Eve Edwin

Since the Theme is an Anything Goes with an Optional Christmas, I chose to do a Christmas. And it came right at the time I was getting ready for a craft purse swap! So I decided to go with the purse as my very first project with the Papercraft Business Challenge Blog! Here it is:

Purse Front

Purse Back

"Coin" Purse

Purse Tags

I got the purse kit from Reneabouquets. Very easy piece to put together. So getting right to papering it and embellishing it was awesome! As I can be very impatient sometimes to get the embellishing started! And the paper all came from Secret Garden Crafty City

I went with pretty simple embellishing on the tags, as I wanted the beautiful prints on the paper to show up. I hope you enjoyed looking at my project, and that you will join us in our first ever challenge!

Outlawz Color Challenge Week of 11/28/2017

Hello, everyone! Today begins a new Color Challenge over at The Outlawz! And this week's amazing Sponsor is:
Prize: $12 Gift Certificate

And this week's Photo Inspiration has been chosen by fellow teammie, Jacqui. I love the colors of the inspiration! Here it is:
Twist: Anything but a Square!
Aren't those some beautiful colors?? I love them! And doing anything but a square, got my creative juices flowing! With that said, I decided to do a Z-Fold card. There's a lot of tutorials out there in Pinterest. Thank goodness! Ha! Now on to what I made:
Front of Card

You would think making a Z-fold might be a little complicated, but it wasn't that hard at all. The example I used didn't have as much of the background showing (mine being the purple), so I made it a little wider margins. I decided to put my sentiment in the middle of the card on the green background, with the sentiment in the blues. My snowflake was colored Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint Sparks - Fairy Wings. I added the green twine bows I got from Whisker Graphics.   On the front, I added some Diamond Glass Glitter from Reneabouquets.  Putting the glass glitter on seemed to make my blue pop more, which is exactly what I wanted. :)

With all that being said, I will be taking a leave of absence from The Outlawz for a bit. I will miss my fellow teammies, but I will be back with them the 1st of March, 2018! Thanks to all my teammates there who have made it so enjoyable! And! What a great Admin! Thanks to her for all her patience! This will give her a rest too....hahaha! I will be back!

Please join us for this amazing Color Challenge! You never might be the winner for this month!

JessicaLynnOriginal New Stamp Releases!

Hello, Everyone! Welcome to another Brand New Stamp Release, You're Never Too Old to Dream, by JessicaLynnOriginal! These are so adorable! I loved the movie fact, even my husband did! So when Jessica came out with this new acrylic stamp release, I thought...oh my goodness! This is going to be fun! (Be sure to read to the end...there's a special offer!)

For my 1st project, I went with making a tag. I layered the black foundational tag with 2 small printed tags, using the colors of her dress. I then put a lavender "bling" ribbon in a diagonal manner, added pearl drops, and all the characters. I stamped the hearts on last, because I wanted to put them around the lanterns.
I made a 2nd Tag with this set also. Here it is: 
So with this project, I used 2 tags...a small one and a large one. These tags are from a company called Whisker Graphics. I used my Tim Holtz ink oxides to color both tags: Bone China, Pickled Raspberry, and a little bit of Walnut Stain. A quick and easy way to get a great background!

Now let me share with you a card I made using her 2nd New Stamp Release, Miracles Take Time. 

This card was super fun to do! Although it's more of a CAS, it still has some "style" to it, with the background embossing and stitching. And I adore those mice!! They are so cute! 

Now the 2nd card from this set:
This card came out so much better than I thought it would! The carriage is made from ovals...a die cut, actually. The paper was strong enough that it just simply embossed the leaf pattern of the die, but I was able to take the oval out. I also used the leaves from the die onto the side of the carriage. Circles were made for the wheels, and I hand cut the stem and the leaf. The couple was colored in with some Prismacolors, and some colored markers, as well as the mice. I added the sentiment in, and a flower on top of the oval "window".

NOW FOR THE SPECIAL: Anyone who buys both sets of these steps, will be offered this FREE DIGITAL over the weekend! 
Be sure to go to JessicaLynnOriginal to check out all the available stamps she has! And while you're at it, Meet the Design Team to see what awesome projects they made with these stamps, by following JessicaLynnOriginal blog:

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #150 - To "Die" For

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you my tag I made for this week's Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! This week the challenge is To "Die" For! And we have 2 amazing Sponsors! They are:

Prize: 3 Digital Images

Prize: 3 Digital Images

I decided to make a Tag using the Yarn Lover Rose image.  Here it is:
Isn't she a cutie?? So for my dies, I used my Silhouette to cut out the tag, and my Big Shot to cut out the doily, the 2 mats behind the doily, and the little branches. I used colored markers to color my image in. 

She was fairly simple to do, but I love the look of the tag! I sure hope that you will join us in our challenges this week! And thanks for stopping by!

ScrapbookingwithM.E. Boutique Mini-Album Swap!

Hello, crafty world! I want to share with you today an album I made for a Swap in the ScrapbookingwithM.E. Members page Tag Mini-Album Swap! It was so much fun to do! While I won't go into the details of how I made it....I will say that I used the Silhouette Portrait to do most of the cutting, including the tags. I have put it in my Facebook Projects Page, Crafts by Jeanie. Please check out this page, as I have several items in there of different projects I have made.

Now here are glimpses of the album:

I also made some pins for my swappie, and a few other things.
