Scrappy Moms Guest Designer ~ March Release

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have exciting news to share today! I am Scrappy Moms March Guest Designer and I have the privilege of sharing the newest stamp release...Sassy Pants and Zodiac Cuties!

Both sets are so fun! I decided to use Zodiac Cuties first because the sentiments are extremely easy to find matching images. Choosing which one was the difficult part since they are ALL so cute. I thought this lamb from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons would put a smile on any birthday girl's face. I just added the present (Cricut ~ Birthday Cakes) and pink bling.
Other Materials:
pattern papers from scrap box
white, black, grey, pink, and tan card stock
brown ink
Versafine Onyx Black ink

I will be sharing more projects during the next week using both of these FABULOUS sets.


Be sure to get your Scrappy Moms Stamps sets today!

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

It is Finally Spring!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Hope you will join us this week!

This Week's Challenge...
Celebrate Spring
It is time to celebrate the warm weather!

I love this time of year! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and I can get back outside to walk at the park.

This group of tulips is from Miss Kate Cuttables (I cut the svg file with my Cameo.). The sentiment is computer generated and the background was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. Finally, lots of brights colored flowers to welcome Spring.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Celebrate Springchallenge. The other design team members definitely know how to welcome Spring. Be sure to check them out.

Spellbinders and Gelatos

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hard to believe the weekend is just about over already. I think the more you look forward to them the quicker they go by. Spring Break is in two weeks and there are only 10 weeks of school left this year. Time sure flies by!

This first card I am sharing I made at the Scrapbook Expo. It is another from the Spellbinders class. I was so excited about learning new techniques that I made two more after I got home using similar materials.

Here are my designs...
First, I used a couple different embossing folders to create the background since I did not have any similar Spellbinders dies. Then I used Gelatos and water to add the color. I was very quick with my painting just to see what type of effect the raised embossing would create.  Now that I know it works I will be more careful next time. Lastly, I added 3 Girl JAM ribbon (gold trim and purple striped), polka dotted vellum, and pink skittles/gold sequins. The sentiments were cut with my Cricut Expression.
Other Materials:
white, purple, and black cardstock

What is the most recent technique that you have learned? I know there are plenty more that will keep me busy. Can't wait for you to share!

Have a FABULOUS week!
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Thinking of You at St. Patrick's Day

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Hope you will join us this week!

This Week's Challenge...
St. Patrick's Day
What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

Here is my Design Team project...
I wanted to try a new technique that I learned at the Scrapbook Expo. I stamped my own background using foam craft and a Spellbinders.

Choose any Spellbinders that can be used as a background. I bought a new one at the Scrapbook Expo after attending my class. 

First, you cut the die from craft foam. I ran my through the Cuttlebug just like it was paper. You will have to remove the tiny pieces since the foam is thicker.  Then you stamp it really well with any color ink. Lastly, using a clear stamp block and double sided tape...stamp the design onto cardstock.

Add embellishments and decorate after the ink is dry. 
Other Materials:
white and yellow card stock
Bo Bunny pattern paper
VersaMagic ink ~ Tea Leaves
Spellbinders ~ Label One
KaDoodle Bug ~ Irish Sheep svg file
Bo Bunny stamp
yellow gems

Other Challenges:
KaDoodle Bug FB Challenge ~ St. Patrick's Day

Here is the one I made at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo in the Spellbinders class.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "St. Patrick's Daychallenge. The other design team members sure are full of luck this week because all their projects are amazing. Be sure to check them out.

Hope you will join the challenge this week!

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

A Cute Spring Flower

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! 
I have been busy with school for the past couple of weeks, but I am ready to craft again..the Orlando Scrapbook Expo is today and I am actually taking the day off from school to go! Very exciting! I am registered for two classes and I am hoping to find some new supplies!

Today is also my day to post at Miss Kate Cuttables. Before I share my daily post, I want to remind you there is a free file that you can download every day. YES! Every day a new and different one. Be sure to get yours today!

Here is my Design Team project...
I recently bought a new Hampton Arts stamp set at Joanns for 50% 0ff that I have been waiting to use and I was thrilled to find the perfect spring time flower to match one of the sentiments. What do you think?

The card layout is from this week's Die Cuttin' Diva sketch. Hope you will try it!

 I used the Cute Flower file. I used various shades of pink, but you could use your favorite color combination. This flower is easy to cut and extremely versatile. 
A pink candy ribbon bow by 3 Girl JAM, a little inking on the edges, and a few enamel dots keep this card clean and simple.

Thanks again for stopping by!
