This is my second post of the day,to see my FCCB candle shaped project please click here.
Would love you to have a peek if you have a minute...I love how it turned out!
Today the fabulous Suzanne has set our challenge over at BBTB2.
In honour of the imminent arrival of her first Grandson she has asked us to make a project for a little boy and to use the colour blue. It doesn't have to be a birth card but you must use a blue cricut cut!
Here is my little cutie...
I used Create A Critter - dog at 3"
                                              Kennel at 3"
                                                            Fire hydrant at 1.75"
Lots of inking,embossing and layers.
DP is My Mind's Eye - Sunny Side Up
There's lots of amazing inspiration from the DT over at BBTB2 .
Look forward to seeing your projects. I do hope you will come and join us.
Thanks for stopping by.

Zva Creative and FCCB Challenge

Hello,Happy Monday Everyone. I would just like to say hello to all my followers new and old.
I appreciate all of you.
Today over at FCCB we are celebrating birthdays and want to see a candle on your project.
The fabulous Zva Creative provided pearl flourishes and gems to use on my card. I love how this turned out.

I made a card similar to this last year but made some improvements to it!
My previous one was smaller and didn't stand well but I played with the design to sort that.

I love the pearl flourish on the flame.

Wrap It Up - 10"
I used my gypsy to weld the candle into a card.
I hid the contours and removed the flame from the back part.
I cut the layers for the front and then cut the lower layers for the inside.
This gave it more weight and at this size supports itself well.
DP - Echo park - Hello Summer
Teeny Tag Greetings and die - My Creative Time
Vintage photo ink and 3d foam
Gems and pearl flourish - Zva Creative

Check out all the inspiration over at FCCB and come and join in the fun.
We love seeing your projects.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 - September

Hello Friends,hope you are having a great's flying already.
Last week I got my mini bluprint stamps and used them to play in the 
12 Tags of 2012. Love these stamps!
I have been trying to get a better photo of this tag and struggled. So in the end I decided to post this photo anyway or it will be October!!! LOL.
Loved the way the meatlwork showed up but thought something was wrong with it......
My metal snowflake had fallen off!!
I made my faux riveted tag and decided to make it 'the earth'.
To see Tim's tag and all the other entries click on the link above.
Off to secure with glossy accents!!
Thanks for looking.

Shirt shaped Card and Fantabulous Crawl Winner

Good Morning Crafty Friends.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2. My very sweet and talented friend,Stephanie, is host and
has chosen a shaped card as our theme,using any cricut cart.
I have a plethora of Dad cards to make for next week (ok...maybe a slight exageration...but I need
a couple at least!!)

Photo removed for publication.
I used CTMH Artiste.
My card is cut at 4.5" and envelope at 4.75".
I cut the envelope slightly bigger because I add so much dimension to my card.
#1 Dad cut at 2"
Papermania Happy Days DP
Papermania Happy Days Urban Stamps
Shrink Plastic - love this stuff
(feel more of a play coming up!)

Close up pocket photo removed for publication.

Since I am on such a kick with my DIY washi tape...I had to make some to seal my
envie! Click here for my tutorial...completely addictive!

As always the BBTB2 DT has lots of fabulous inspiration.
We love seeing your cricut creations,just remember our challenges are weekly now!
The winner of my Fantabulous Cricut Crawl Blog Candy is....
What wonderful projects!! I love the file folders - perhaps as I was hunting for something like that for my desk at work!! Nothing I found came anywhere close to yours! Great pencil box too!

My favourite stationary item is little notepaper - especially when it has a sweet little picture on it.
Congratulations Kate!
Thanks for stopping by.

DIY Washi tape Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend.
Part of my My Creative Time order arrived this week which were from Emma's
latest release. So I have been busily making lots of variations of tri-fold cards and envelopes.
I used washi tape on one of the cards I made and  really liked the look.
So decided to have a go at making my own!
Basic masking tape placed on my glass could use a craft sheet.
I stamped in archival ink.
I wiped a corner of my distress ink pads onto the glass mat, added water and coloured in.
I attached them to acetate to store.
It's very addictive to make!
It's so easy,this will be fab for Christmas packaging!!!
List of supplies:-
Card Sentiments,3 x3 Fancy envelope Die,Stitched Scallop and Circle Die,
All Around Halloween,All Around Everything and Accessories - My Creative Time.
Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints
Masking Tape
Distress Inks
Thanks for looking.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
