An Early Christmas!

My Sheri Crafts design team sister Sue challenges us to create a project featuring at least 3 dimensional elements. I made a card using paper from Kaisercraft. I added a snowflake that I made using a die from Spellbinders, some Prima and Recollections flowers and leaves, and shimmer trim and sequins from Close To My Heart.

Back To School!

School started a little too early for my boy this month, but he was all smiles. Design team sister Raquel, challenges us to create a project with a "back- to-school" theme, and I had to make a layout capturing the moment. I used a paper packet and chipboard set from Close To My Heart's Chalk It Up and La Vie En Rose (retired) lines. I splattered some white gesso and distressed the paper edges. I had fun making this layout, that I did not even notice that it did not have any bling, lace or flowers. lol!

We'd love to see what you come up with, and please join us at My Sheri Crafts!

It's The Olympics!

The summer Olympics is just around the corner, so design team sister Sarah challenges us to make a sport-themed project. I could not decide on just any sport, so I included a whole bunch of them when I made a center step card. I had seen design team sister Glenda make some, and I always told myself to try it, one of these days. Using Copics, I colored a free image of Mickey from the internet and paired it with paper and embellishments from Close To My Heart's Magical collection-- the paper pack, Complements, and sequin pack. I added some Whisper twine and Blue Shimmer Trim to complete the look.

Just Chillin!

It's so hot here in the desert right now, such that ice-cream had become a staple in our household. :-D Design Team sister Glenda challenged us to make a card or project featuring an ice-cream. I decided to try my hand on making another version of a box card using the Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial. I used the Zoe paper packet from Close To My Heart and a CTMH retired Stamp Of the Month, Ice Cream Dream. I colored the images with Copic markers and just added some gold sequins for a more festive look. I added a white "paper ;ace" border using a Martha Stewart Punch.

Down At The Beach

Design Team sister Sue from My Sheri Crafts is challenging us to make a project featuring the beach! I just got back a couple of weeks ago from a month-long vacation, most of which was spent on the beach, so I was more than inspired to make some handmade Project Life cards with a horizontal aspect. I used paper from Graphic 45, embellishments from Close To My Heart, K&Co and The Paper Studio, flowers from Prima, and washi tape from Recollections, mt and The Paper Studio.

Here are also some pics of the beach and surrounding water in Palawan. :-)

We would love to see your beach-inspired creations at My Sheri Crafts! Come join us!

Land Of The Free

Hi everyone! It's my turn to host our challenge at My Sheri Crafts! We are celebrating America's birthday, so our theme is red, white and blue! I wanted to make a banner with a positive image reminder. :-D I used paper from Close To My Heart and Julie Nutting's Paper Dolls and Summer Collections. I used my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to make the pennants. The top layer was cut at 8" and the base at 9". The accent piece at the top of the banner was cut at 8". I added some paper doll die cuts from Julie Nutting. They were so much fun to dress up! :-D To embellish the pennants, I added some stickers from the Reset Girl, Julie Nutting's Paper Dolls Collections, some Enamel Hearts from CTMH, Prima flowers and leaves and ribbon from Recollections. I wanted to keep on adding embellishments but decided I wanted a cleaner look. :-)

Come join our patriotic celebration at My Sheri Crafts!

Tags, Tags and More Tags!

It's design team sister Raquel's turn to host our challenge at My Sheri Crafts. We were being asked to make tags. It has been a while since I made a shadowbox tag, so I made one. I colored a Julie Nutting wooden doll with Copic markers. I used the chipboard packaging it came with to make my shadowbox. I covered the shadowbox with paper from Athentique, and added some K&Co embellishments. I also stamped the sentiment with a Julie Nutting stamp. The aqua-colored sequins are from CTMH and the mermaid's necklace is from Julie Nutting for Prima. I lined the sides on the shadowbox tag with washi tape from Recollections.'re it! It's your turn to make tags and share them with us at My Sheri Crafts!
