Birthday Celebration at Die Cuttin' Divas

I hope  everyone is doing well. LOTS going on here! My daughter moved back to the college dorm this past weekend, went on a field trip yesterday with my class, took the dog to the vet since her surgical spot looked terrible, and we made reservations for summer vacation next year (my son and his girlfriend are going with us this time). PHEW! And it is only Tuesday.

Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Birthday Celebration ~

Here is my Design Team project...
A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card for her 1 year old grand-daughter.

The flying unicorn file is by Miss Kate Cuttables. The scalloped frame and stitched rectangle mats are by My Favorite Things. The scalloped circle is by My Craft Spot.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Birthday Celebrationchallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

Back to School at Die Cuttin' Divas

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating this week. I am trying to balance school, home, and crafting again and before long I will have a nice routine. Until then...I have to have patience!

Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Back to School ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I think a nerdy apple is very appropriate for the first week of school. I got my glasses back in January and have to wear them all the time. I don't mind though becuase I think it makes the teacher look even smarter. I have a couple students that need to wear glasses and don't like to, so it is my way of encouraging them to keep them on.

The nerdy apple is by SVG Cutting Files ~ Kawaii Nerdy School.

The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ School Rules set.

Thank You for Summer Fun at Miss Kate Cuttables

It has been a SUPER busy two weeks getting ready for back to school, which is why I haven't been around much. The first three days have been great, but with so many changes in our district this year I have had to postpone my crafting. Once a school routine is established and additional information is released so I can plan a couple weeks ahead, then I will be able to get back to a regular crafting schedule.

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts tonight, and remember there is a free file every day! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge...
~ Summer Fun ~

Here is my Design Team project...
Although summer free-time is quickly coming to an end, I was still thinking about the hot, sunny weather. I decided to make thank you cards for my parents that sent in wish list items. I always like to show them appreciation and I thought this sun would put a smile on their face.


I created the background using a MFT cloud stencil and Salty Ocean distress ink. The happy sun is a Miss Kate Cuttables files, which was easy to cut on my Cameo. The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Kind Thanks set.

I made a few is two different directions since I have so many wonderful parents.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Summer Fun" challenge. The other design team members sure do enjoy the summer time too! Be sure to check out ALL the variety!

Term Over at Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Hello Everyone,

I just got back yesterday from a week long cruise in the Caribbean. What a fabulous way to end summer break before heading back to school on Thursday. We went to Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico and did an excursion at each port. Fun! Fun! Fun! We are already talking about next year's cruise since it will be our 25th anniversary. My first choice is a Scandinavian trip with stops in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Amsterdam, and/or Russia. We need to research ports and flights before making any final decisions. Wherever we decide, it will definitely be memorable. 

Today is the last day of my Eyelet Outlet and Brads term. Six months has flown by and it was a pleasure showcasing so many different products. I know I will continue to use a variety of the products and hope you will add some to your collection.

I used a few My Favorite Things products but really want to focus on the vellum and pink gems. Since adhesive will typcially show through vellum I applied small dots of glue behind the gems. Now you can't see any residue and the vellum is securely adhered.

I added Wink of Stella clear glitter to the MFT sheep.

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products! Why not check them out today.

Under the Sea at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating. Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Under the Sea ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I created two snack boxes for any day trip...perhaps to the aquarium. Me, I love Sea World and the best part is educators can get a free teacher pass. Guess what I forgot when I was making this project? The goldfish crackers. I went to the grocery store, but forgot to write them on this list. Have you ever done that? 

I cut the Silhouette boxes by Sweet Afton with my Cameo. The original came with the goldfish cut-out, but I changed the other one. I used a MKC dolphin file and only needed one layer. I added  a piece of clear transparency film so the crackers won't fall out. The mini tag is by My Craft Spot and the Fish On stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Under the Seachallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

Stay Creative,

I Can't Thank You Enough at Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Happy Friday Everyone!
Today is my second to last day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads since my term will be complete at the end of July and I am showcasing a few different products from the shop.

Here is my Design Team project...
I am still trying to add some thank you cards to my stash. When I go back to school in two weeks I want to be able to give a card to the parents that send in items from the class wish list. Due to budget cuts, our class supply orders were cancelled and I am going to be appreciative of anything that I can get for the students. 

I used the following sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I layered the light purple flowers and added a round daisy brad in the center. Both the flowers and brads come in a variety of colors. The flower was adhered with a 1/2" Glue Dot.

The background was created using MFT periwinkle ink and a splatter stamp from the Distressed Patterns set. The stamped sentiment is by My Favorite Things ~ Thank so Very Much set and the heart enamel dots are from Eyelet Outlet and Brads.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products! Why not check them out today.

Fluttering By to Say "Hi" at Paper Play Sketches

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

Today is Paper Play Sketches Day.
This Week's Challenge...


Here is my Design Team project...
First, I had to decide which paper stack I wanted to use for this sketch. I chose Vintage Bliss by Simple Stories because of the color palette.

Then I needed to select an image for the square...I love butterflies, so I pulled out a die from my stash. This set had an embossing die, which left a slight imprint on the wings.

The stamped sentiment is an oldie by Whimsical Designs.
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they used the sketch.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana
